5.0 out of 5 stars excellent reinforcement
While the question formats are everything but NCLEX, I found the content review challenging (beyond the basic Q & A or vocab style of workbooks from simpler subjects). Dense... a lot to review even when only 5 pages per chapter in some cases. I could quickly see areas I needed to reread before the test. The questions seemed to mirror very much the topics chosen for my...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it!
This study guide is not worth the hassle of looking up all the answers. It's too detailed and not NCLEX styled! I thought there would be more general questions and practice quizzes. It's way too many long drawn out fill in the blanks! I wish I would have bought something different with the money wasted on this book! :(

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent reinforcement, October 12, 2011
This review is from: Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment and Management of Clinical Problems, 8e (Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment & Management of Clinical Problem) (Paperback)
While the question formats are everything but NCLEX, I found the content review challenging (beyond the basic Q & A or vocab style of workbooks from simpler subjects). Dense... a lot to review even when only 5 pages per chapter in some cases. I could quickly see areas I needed to reread before the test. The questions seemed to mirror very much the topics chosen for my actual tests. Highly recommend. There are plenty of NCLEX study guides out there. I don't feel the lack of NCLEX practice is a negative to the workbook. I liked being able to focus on gaps in my content knowledge rather than play the game of "what is the NCLEX question really asking (or tricking) me". NCLEX prep tends to make me feel like I have to prove how well I take tests, not demonstrate what I actually know and have studied. The Med-Surg text is intense and detailed technical reading. It often requires two or more reads to get it straight and retain the bulk of it- and since there's rarely time for that, the workbook makes better use of your time by focusing on your weak spots, without being too simple or drill-like.

This review is from: Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment and Management of Clinical Problems, 8e (Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment & Management of Clinical Problem) (Paperback)
This study guide is not just comprehension/vocab questions like most study guides. It really required thought and application of the information to complete. Not NCLEX style, but did help me learn to "think like a nurse". Answers are in the back of the book along with explanations. It helped me think about the information rather than just memorize it.

This review is from: Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment and Management of Clinical Problems, 8e (Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment & Management of Clinical Problem) (Paperback)
This book is extremely heavy. Its somewhat difficult to read. It can be very overwhelming. I have had other classmate purchase an alternative medical surgical nursing textbook and past the class.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have!, November 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment and Management of Clinical Problems, 8e (Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Assessment & Management of Clinical Problem) (Paperback)
This study guide is a MUST HAVE as an adjunct to the textbook. Each question has a corresponding rationale and just going through the questions and rationals helps to give a greater understanding of the content. Not only are you getting a great review before each nursing school exam but you are getting good practice with NCLEX style questions to prepare for the NCLEX exam!
