CD is old school (breakable) and Multiple device support software is the new trend
The Free Access code is not for "Textbook" registration but its for a free Practice Questions from "Online Evolve Account" and was widely misunderstood because its actually a free "redeeming code" to a browser-base Practice Questions software from Evolve Online Catalog (similar to an App Store or Google Play store)
In order to redeem the free code, you need first to "create" your Evolve account with valid email address.
The registration process may be "annoying" to the students but it does not take a minute to sign up a new Evolve account.
Existing Evolve students (and teachers) users can simply sign in to redeem the free code.
If you do not want to purchase the 6th Edition Paperback, the online browser-base software actual price is $ 26

Saunders is the best Review for the NCLEX hands down. I can't personally say that I have tried other books, but I'll start off by saying that I passed the NCLEX. On my first try. With 1 month to study. After being out of nursing school for a year without reviewing.
For reasons that are too long to detail here, I was having difficulty scheduling my NCLEX due to various factors. Due to some miscommunication mostly on my part, I found that they had scheduled me to take the NCLEX and had given me a test date which was exactly one month away. You can imagine the overwhelming panic that came over me as I realized I had been out of nursing school since December 2012, and it was now mid-January 2014. Anyone reading this that is thinking of "taking a break" from nursing after graduating before preparing for the NCLEX... do not wait a year like I did. This will help prevent a lot of unnecessary stress.
The tools I used to review included this book (the Kindle version) which is the 6th edition, and NCSBN's learning extension review for the NCLEX online. Now the reason that I purchased the Kindle version of Saunders was because I had ordered the physical copy of the Saunders 5th Edition book and it was taking much longer than expected to arrive to me. At the time I was living in a small town in Alaska, and Barnes & Noble or was not readily available to me to purchase an NCLEX review book. As I became more and more anxious for the 5th Edition to come in, I could not NOT study and wanted a textbook in addition to the lessons online on NCSBN. I opted to purchase the Kindle edition of this book so that it could be delivered to me right away electronically and I could begin reviewing. I wanted the physical copy of the 5th edition for a reason though.Read more ›
Buy the 5th edition. It has a CD with 5000+ questions. This version (6th edition) and the 5th edition have the same content. I have the newer 6th edition but I have not even cracked the plastic. My nursing school gave them to us so I have seen other peoples book. I will stick with the 5th edition and use the CD with it.
Used this as my sole study guide and prep for the NCLEX and passed with flying colors and was not stressed during the test at all. A great way to brush up on what you need to and get some practice questions in. I used the online features to create a study calendar on my weakest subjects- a smart way to study!
I am 2/5 done with nursing school and got this book to start studying in advance. It helps studying for my nursing courses, since most teachers try to test in the "NCLEX-mindset". Its easy enough to read, considering the content of the material. I definitely would suggest this to any student nurse, regardless of how far along you are in the program!
