This book was very helpful in preparation for the med-surg certification exam. When I took the exam, this book proved to cover most of the content on the exam. The book is easy to follow and covers all the main points. My only critique is that I wish there were more practice questions in the book.

To anyone desirous of preparing for the adult health cns certification examination, this book should be added to your study material. I which they had more questions in the back of the book, but it is useful.

This book appropriately reflected the content of the Medical Surgical Nursing Certification exam. I read this book, reviewed the content outline on ANCC's webpage and pulled out my old NCLEX books to practice questions and passed on the first try.

Being a visual learner, this was a perfect review book for me. Pages have great layout, the material is logically organized, and words are used carefully. As a result, the whole review takes less than 400 pages, in a friendly format. At first, I was suspicious about unusual colors of print (green, magenta, etc.), but it turns out to be easy on my eyes, while still very legible. The only drawback to me was the pharmacology info-it is all piled up at the end of the book. It was probably based on exam's percentage of pharmacology questions, but still feels slightly artificial. Otherwise, great book, and reasonably priced, too!

Easy to read and understand that seems in line with ANCC content and a great review for my nursing job. A post-test for each section is fantastic for self-feedback but a cumulative test. This is the best of ALL the other review books out there!

Easy to study from with body systems, legal and ethical issues covered chapter by chapter. Good pre-test at the end of the text.

I purchased this book thinking it would be full of questions to practice for my upcoming exam, and although it had some decent information in it, just wasn't what I was looking for. If you haven't taken the review course in person and were going to study out of a book, this may be more suitable for you. I wouldn't re-purchase it knowing what I know now.

The review materials are good. Limited review questions at the end of each section and practice test at the end.

I can't speak to other publications in this area, but this book was all I needed to read in prep for the ANCC med-surg cert test. (The test isn't that hard, really.) Buy it.
