At a complete loss, I researched what i should do. I was certain i was never going to pass. I was studying so hard and could not seem to pass the test. I bought this book on amazon and fell in love with it from the very beginning. Each chapter had 10-30 pages of content and then questions pertaining to the content at the end of the chapter. The cd has 1,000s of questions, tests, and practice questions.
I walked into the test last week, extremely nervous. Having finished this entire book, I knew there was nothing more i could have done. I started the test, hoping for 265 questions again, as i thought that was the only hope i had of passing. You cannot even imagine my surprise when the computer shut off at 75! I was beyond shocked! I cried there in the testing center! Then went home and waited 2 days. I was shaking when i logged on to see! AND I PASSED! i am 100% sure that this book is the reason I passed. I am so grateful i found this book! A must buy!
The accompanying CD provided valuable feedback regarding areas of strength and weakness. While it is good to have as many practice questions thrown at you as possible in book form, the CD challenges you in the way you will be tested; i.e., on the computer. So when the big day comes, you will be ready for the style of the NCLEX as well as its substance.
Two quick tips regarding the boards: 1) Schedule them for a time of day when you are at your best. If you are not a morning person, late morning or early afternoon test times will probably work better for you. 2) Study thoroughly, but it is better to finish your studies two days before the exam. Give yourself the day before to clear your head and relax (yeah, right!) on the eve of the boards. If you do not know the material by then, you are probably not going to learn it the day before.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I passed my boards at 92 questions, thanks in no small part to Ms. Silvestri's book. Many thanks to her, and best of luck to all of the soon-to-be nurses.
I attended University of San Francisco (USF) and they require the HESI exam after each course in order to pass the course and move on. I purchased this book to study for each HESI exam AND also for the NCLEX. this review book is written in a clear, easy to understand manner. It covers all the information that you need in order to pass the NCLEX. I had about 3 other review books, but THIS is the one I used the most and that I feel was most helpful and accurate to the NCLEX.
Regarding the HESI exams if your school uses them: you will want to also use the HESI specific study guide. We (my cohort) found that many of the questions in the HESI study guide were actual test questions just with different wording, so that made the HESI easier. However, for general knowledge and understanding the Saunders book is much better. Think of the HESI as being test specific, so you need it, but the Saunders is more of the 'real deal' for the NCLEX. It is also a much better general review for comprehending concepts, which is helpful for both exams.
I STRONGLY recommend you use flash cards to study as well. Don't get the kind with multiple questions on each card - you can't use as easily because when you flip them over to check your answer you then see the answers to the other questions that are on the same card. Make sure they only have one question per card. I punched holes in them and put them on a ring to carry around.
Lastly, my husband helped me study and often he would guess at answers also just for fun.Read more ›
