Great study guide for the nursing school entrance exam.
Tony S.
I actually did quite well on the test, but thanks in no part to this book.
A. Davis
This book was slightly useful for the reading and math sections.

This book was very helpful for me. It helped me prepare for my nursing exam, which I passed! I went to the math section first because that's usually my weakness but it helped me pick up on some forgotten material and my highest score was in math on the exam. So it helped me remarkably even in my worst subject. The book gave a lot harder examples and practice questions than the actually test had. By that, it prepared me for the worst.

Format: Paperback
This book was slightly useful for the reading and math sections. Unfortunately, the science and writing portions of this guide, especially the physiology sections which are harder and actually covered in the test, were not even included in the review sections or practice sections. Instead, this books spent unnecessary time reviewing chemistry, punnet square genetics and some elemental physics (which in my opinion were wasted sections of paper in this study guide since not a single question was related to any of these topics). So, no, I don't recommend this book to anyone--this is a complete waste of money and time. The students are better off brushing basic operations involving fractions, percentages, and word problems. For the writing section, I would recommend getting a study guide that covers basic grammar, punctuation, identifies errors in sentence structure, and tells you about the correct use of verbs and subjects in a selected piece of reading (wish somebody had told me that). For the science section, the students are better off reviewing their own physiology notes from class (nothing in too much detail). Just make sure to study up the respiration and circulation chapters, sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, and anything related to the central nervous system.

This book is a poor study guide for the KAPLAN Nursing School Entrance Exam. It covers all kinds of math, when all you need to know is how to Add, Subtract, Multiply & Divide fractions. The Reading section was very similar to the actual test. But in the study guide it has a whole section on spelling, and the KAPLAN doesn't even ask one question about spelling. But instead there is a whole section on Grammar and Punctuation. And Last, the science was a review of Biology, Physiology, Anatomy, and Earth Systems, and the only course that is covered on the test is Physiology. So No it wasn't very helpful. Maybe it would help more for the TEAS Test, but not the KAPLAN. There has got to be a better study guide out there.

I had gotten this book, so I can study for my nursing entrance exam. This book is helpful if you are trying to get into the program. I reccomend this book for all prenursing students.

To give the book some credit, it did provide basic information that is somewhat useful. The reading section was similar to what was on the exam. However, other sections tested over information not provided in the book. Most of the book was filled with pages upon pages of information that was essentially useless for the Kaplan nursing exam. If you plan you take the exam, use this with caution. Know what is on the exam before you take it. Your pre-requisite text books are more useful.

Not very helpful with preparing for the exam. Lots and lots of typos and errors in the example problems. Science section in book was completely unrelated to questions asked on the exam.

Great study guide for the nursing school entrance exam. I used other study guides before and nothing worked for me like Kaplan's study guide. I was excepted into nursing school on my first try after using this study guide.
