Editorial Reviews


Congratulations on making it through nursing school! While the NCLEX may seem daunting now, it is simply a long review of what you have already learned. You have made it through the hardest part; now, you have just one mile left on the journey. This book is your guide for that last leg. Just as the Sherpas the native experts guide mountaineers in the Himalayas, Author J. Lucy Boyd is your NCLEX Sherpa, and 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your NCLEX is your compass. I wish a book like this was available when I took the NCLEX many years ago. Boyd avoids the trap many review books fall into and does not try to reteach nursing school. Instead, she walks you through how the test is designed, what to expect from the questions, and just as important what to expect from the actual mechanics of taking the computer-based test. You will discover that the NCLEX is not shrouded in mystery. By carefully reading this book, you will learn what the NCLEX is really testing for, how to approach the each type of question, and how to minimize mistakes while you are taking the exam. Be sure to pay special attention to the Smart Strategies throughout the book. These tips and hints make this book particularly valuable. They will help you focus on the key aspects of the information and will keep you from being bogged down with details that are not as important something that can really eat up your review time. I have been an item writer for the National Council for State Boards of Nursing and for professional specialty certification exams. In fact, I took a course in test construction. NCLEX questions follow very specific rules and are extensively tested before they are used to assess your knowledge. In fact, you will test new questions when you take the exam. While you will not know which ones they are, new questions will be part of your exam. The test creators carefully review each sample question s results before it becomes part of the official exam. Answers that seem clear to item writers and reviewers may not be clear to new nurses taking the boards, so the questions are modified or thrown out. You can be assured that there are not any gotcha questions waiting for you. The sample tests in this book will allow you to practice questions that follow the NCLEX format. The size of this book is ideal for carrying it with you to study on breaks or when you find yourself with time to kill. Get out your highlighter and a pen, mark it up, fold over the pages, and make it your personal study guide. Use the checklists and timelines to stay on track. I will never forget how excited I was when I tore open the envelope that told me I passed the NCLEX so many years ago. Earning your nursing license is the first step on a new journey. For me, that journey has led through critical care, medical-surgical and emergency nursing, home care, consulting, teaching, being an award-winning medical writer and health columnist for the New York Daily News, and being a repeat guest on The View. Your future is limited only by your imagination. Where will your journey take you? --Patricia Carroll RN, BC, CEN, RRT, MS

Format: Paperback
If you are reading 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your NCLEX, you are already well on the road to becoming the best nurse you can be. But this invaluable guide on "What You Need to Know About the National Council Licensure Examination Explained Simply" should be on the desk of every "new grad" and seasoned RN for what's important in the first step of a nurse's career -- and every working day after. For students, there's information on not just what to expect in the grueling exam, but how to prepare for it a month in advance -- including skills checklists, strategies, quizzes, advice from old pros and two practice exams. For the experienced nurse, the breakdown of testing areas -- from management of care to safety and infection control to health promotion to psychosocial issues -- provide an excellent resource for everyday practice, and a reminder of just how fulfilling working with patients, their families and other healthcare professionals can be.

I found this book to be depressing it made you second guess your self with negative comments, most other NCLEX books provide encouragement , positive steps to take to study. I can not in my heart recommend this book to anyone.
