Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent tool for nursing students for preparing for the NCLEX examination. It provides a logical, systematic method of review by beginning with a comprehensive pre-test for identifying areas of needed study. A procedure is then outlined for how best to approach the defined area of study. The book is also a particularly effective resource for nursing faculty to guide students who need remediation in specific content areas. The only down-side of the book is that it is a bit ominous in size; however, the clear plan of study with multiple tips and suggestions for success on the NCLEX exam compensates for the size.

Format: Paperback
The practice questions in the beginning of the book replicate certain areas (thyroidectomy, hernias, GI) and lack in the areas of peds and maternal health. So, the review practice questions should not be used to judge your clinical knowledge in all areas nursing. On the upside, what other study guides lack, this book makes up for them by having nice illustrations with descriptions, good rationales and meds info. Saunders and Kaplan are two books that complement this study guide.

Format: Paperback
I used four different NCLEX-RN prep books. Davis's is THE BEST book to use. The practice questions in this book most closely mimic the REAL NCLEX questions. The best way to prep for the test is to just do practice questions - thousands of question. Davis's gives you that, plus excellent outlines/chapters on all the different subject areas for content review. Having rationales for both why answers are correct or incorrect is very useful. The best feature is the CD-ROM. It allows you to do thousands of practice questions and customize each practice test based upon categories and subcategories. So if you feel you need more practice with Renal related questions you can select just that category. You can also select question base upon type - for example if you want to practice analysis type question or comprehension type questions you can select those too. So basically you can ulta-customize tests a million different ways for your needs. Oh, and it gives excellent feedback based upon your scores in each category and overall. This is the book that I used the most and it is the reason why I passed the NCLEX-RN. This is the best book out there. Don't waste your time with learning strategy...just do tons and tons of practice questions. By doing this you will kill two birds with one stone - refresh upon content and subconsciously pick up on intuition and strategy.

Format: Paperback
Nothing against the content, but the quality is bad.
Tables are badly printed, missing or overprinted entries,
some graphs are also missing.
Publisher was not interested to provide any correction.
Maybe next edition or revision will be better.
Do not count on it as a single source of the information.

Format: Paperback
There is a lot of information in the book. It covers every topic you will in great detail. Nearly too much detail. The review sections are hard to follow and hard to review from. The graph's are complicated to understand. The outline form they use is just to hard to go by. It all depends on the type of person you are but I would go with a different book all together, like Incredibly Easy.

So far this book has been great. I graduate from nursing school in December and have been using it to study for tests in my current classes. I love how it's really broken down in the table of contents, so it's easy to find exactly the subject you're studying in school & read about it. The CD that comes with it has additional questions too, so I would highly recommend this book!

Great review book, Lots of test questions for each subject (Med Surge, Ped, OB ...etc) However the CD that comes with it is compatible with Windows 2000/XP and I have Vista (...or is it the other way around?) either way, it won't work on my computer =(

I ordered this book for my second semester in nursing after struggling with med-surg. I have only glanced at it a little bit but I specifically ordered it because I love all of my other Davis books. I really love their style and layout.
