More About the Author

As a child, I always dreamed of becoming either a nurse or teacher. Initially, I chose to become a nurse because I wanted to help others, especially those who were ill. Then I realized that both of my dreams could come true: I could be both a nurse and a teacher. So I pursued my dreams.
I received my diploma in nursing at Cooley Dickinson Hospital School of Nursing in Northampton, Massachusetts. Afterwards, I worked at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts and cared for clients in acute medical-surgical units, the intensive care unit, the emergency department, pediatric units, and other acute care units. Later, I received an associate degree from Holyoke Community College in Holyoke, Massachusetts, my BSN from American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts, and my MSN from Anna Maria College, Paxton, Massachusetts, with a dual major in Nursing Management and Patient Education. I received my PhD candidacy status in Nursing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and I am doing research related to success on the NCLEX®. I am also a member of the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, Phi Kappa Phi, Golden Key International Honour Society, the Western Institute of Nursing, and the Eastern Nursing Research Society.
As a native of Springfield, Massachusetts, I began my teaching career as an instructor of medical-surgical nursing and leadership-management nursing at Baystate Medical Center School of Nursing in 1981. In 1989 I relocated to Rhode Island and began teaching medical-surgical nursing and psychiatric nursing to RN and LPN students at the Community College of Rhode Island. Later in 1994, I began teaching nursing at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island and remain there as an adjunct faculty member.
My experiences as a student, nursing educator, and item writer for the NCLEX exams, aided me as I developed a comprehensive review course to prepare nursing students and graduates for the NCLEX examination. In 1991, I established Professional Nursing Seminars, Inc., and in 2000, I established Nursing Reviews, Inc. Both companies are dedicated to conducting review courses for the NCLEX-RN and the NCLEX-PN examinations and assisting nursing graduates to achieve their goals of becoming Registered Nurses and/or Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses.
Today, I conduct review courses for the NCLEX examinations throughout New England and am the author of numerous successful review products published by Elsevier. I hope that you will use these review products and join me with your journey to success in testing for nursing examinations and for the NCLEX® examination!

Format: Paperback
It's filled with over 3,450 questions each catagorized by the categories- Assessment,Analysis,Planning etc., It has rationale to support the reasons that the answer is correct and why the incorrect answers are incorrect. It's a great study tool in preparation for state boards. It brings everything together.

This is the best book out there as far as how questions are written. I threw out a Mosby book before this one; it was terrible. I did 5,000 questions total to pratice for boards, using Saunders Comprehensive Review and this book and passed my boards in 75 questions on the first try. The Saunders questions were most like "the real thing" compared to other books I used.

I was disappointed that this book only had 1700 questions in the text itself; the CD-ROM had 3,000, but they duplicated the ones in the book, so if you did the book first and then the CD, you got repeats. It would be better if the CD only had new questions on it and not the ones in the book.

If you are prepping for your board exams, don't be mistaken--you have to do the content review FIRST. This book is for after you have reviewed your content and just want to practice questions.

The book is okay and I do like having the rationales right next to the questions. However I got the Dosage and Calculations CD instead of the RN review CD. I havn't taken my NCLEX yet and am not having much luck reaching the publishier to replace my CD.

I have exchanged the CD-ROM of Saunders Q & A more than five times and it is still either the incorrect CD or defective one. It kept giving me the same rationale for each and every question; and, did not tabulate my answers. Very frustrating. I called the publisher already but still got a defective CD-ROM.

This book really help me prepare for the boards. I would suggest not to bother with the book because they had the rationales right next to the questions so it was quite annoying. However, the cd-rom was great. The exam format and questions are similar to the NCLEX exam. I highly recommend this for practicing Q & A's.

Out of all the review books I have read, this one definitely has the best format, and the questions are very good preparation for the NCLEX exam. However, in my experience, computerized review questions are the most beneficial for me as I get close to exam time. Unfortunately, I chose to focus on the accompanying CD ROM for my last two weeks prior to the test, and was immobilized by continuous and ongoing error messages, crashes, and loss of data.

Customer support is terrible... basically nonexistent.

I purchased the 4th edition of this book. The CD-Rom they claimed would run on Macs would not run. Nor would it run on any of the Macs used by my classmates. Upon review, I discovered that the underlying app for the CD-ROM is written for PowerPC - a very old Mac technology which is now obsolete.

The vendor's website is useless - try sending them an email and you get stuck in a loop proving you're not spam. So getting a replacement CD that will run on Macs is out of the question.

If you're a Windows user, pray you don't get a defective CD with your book, or you'll be out the money, like I was.
