I have read alot of NCLEX review books ....and this one is different!!!! It keeps the reader interested,and has great tips on how to approach NCLEX questions that no other review book, that I have read, has offered. There is some much needed humor...which also helped the information "click"! The color illustrations are great!! I would highly recommend this book!!!

Would recommend to anyone looking for a simple way to study how to answer questions- much more realistic than reading the huge NCLEX review books or pulling out you med-surg book

As a nursing instructor for over 7 years I was curious to read this review book. I had heard a lot about the Hurst Review and its claim of success. After reviewing the questions included I am surprised- most were written at the knowledge or comprehension level and I only saw a few written at the application level. Any nurse educator will tell you that to successfully pass NCLEX a student needs to answer questions on the application, analysis and synthesis levels. The answers were also obvious for many questions (the correct answer was longer than the rest) and the stems were extremely long. After taking numerous item writing courses and educational presentations about the NCLEX and test taking skills, I honestly don't think this review book is effective. As a nursing instructor I would hesitate to recommend this book.

Also recommended: Billings- Lippincott Review for NCLEX Silvestri - NCLEX review and the Kaplan review

I found the "need to know" pages a great help in studying for the NCLEX. My school gave us the Hurst live review and I attended 3 days of a woman reading PowerPoint lectures with bits of interesting videos thrown in here and there. Pure Torture!

The information in this book was better than the boring Hurst live review in my opinion. I was surprised that the information in this book and the information from the live review were so different.

If you are going to take the NCLEX RN and can only buy one book - my professional opinion is to purchase the Saunders NCLEX review and do every chapter, every question, and every test!

After reading the reviews about this book, I also decided to give it a shot. At first I thought it was just one more nclex book, but after reading it I totally loved.
My college offered kaplan review course, and guess what, did not work for me. HURST helped me not only study right but actually PASS the exam.
I'M extremely happy with this purchase, totally recommend the book. IF you read every page and do what aunt Marlene says,lol. YOU WILL PASS. Like I did :)

i wish i had bought this while i was in school! the different topics are broken down into bite sized chunks that make it easy to learn and remember. the study tips in the front and the questions on the disc really help. i used this to study for my kaplan & hesi exit exams; i blew them both away. worth the time & money.

Great for the final study week! I passed in 75 questions. It's just enough information for the last study sessions. I really enjoyed the chapter with just charts. I found the cd to be useless, so don't worry if you don't get it. The book itself it excellent!

I was disappointed to find that the rental book didn't have the CD. The CD is clearly advertised on the cover and is part of the product. I feel that this is a misrepresentation.
