Saunders NCLEX review

The end-all, be-all of NCLEX review.
The end-all, be-all of NCLEX review.

What can I say? I anticipated that taking NCLEX would be h.e.l.l. As I sat down and started answering questions though, I kept thinking, “Is this for real?” “Surely they’re trying to trick me – this seems too easy.”

I only used 1 thing to study – Saunders’ most recent comprehensive NCLEX review. Here are the pros:

  • Information is presented in bullet-point, with the most important things highlighted for each topic.
  • Questions for each topic are real NCLEX-style questions (and I think I remember recognizing some of the questions when I took the exam).
  • Answers include rationales, and they make sense.
  • The book is written by one of those (masochistic) people who write questions for the actual NCLEX.

Thankfully, I purchased this at the beginning of my last year of nursing school, and started using it to study as soon as it arrived. It ended up being perfect – it helped me focus in on the critical things when studying for exams for all my nursing classes. And yes, I recognized an awful lot of exam questions as having been in the book.

In short, this book – and only this book – were plenty to prepare me to take the NCLEX. When I took it, the system clicked off at 75 questions. No expensive review courses. No schlepping around 200 lbs of nursing books. This one took care of it all.
