I must say, when I saw this on the list of books needed, I was skeptical. Even the first few chapters assigned, I thought, ok I already know this. BUT let me tell you, when I hit chapter 7, as a first semester nursing student, this was awesome! The hardest thing the first semester isn't learning the content alone, that's more of disciplined reading. BUT knowing HOW to use the nursing process strategies for the NCLEX style questions on your exams, this was a must! It teaches you the styles of questions used, teaches you how to analyze the question and break it apart, and if you have some general knowledge of what you've been studying, you will get it narrowed down to 2 answers to choose from at the LEAST. It was a lightbulb moment for me. I suggest reading chapter 7 BEFORE it's ever assigned so that you ARE prepared for your first test, which will shake you up a bit. You think you know the answers, but you soon realize, analyzing is everything. All answers can be right to some extent, but knowing how to eliminate distractors, negative polarity, etc....you cannot learn that from the textbook. And this book is all NCLEX based test strategies. TRUST ME, this is more than worth the money!!!

I bought this book to use as an instructor. I also do remediation for nursing students. The concepts in this book are very helpful. It is not disease specific, but it teaches how to read the question to understand what is being asked. Well worth the money.

I purchased this book in preparation for my first semester of nursing school & it's been great - here's why:
* it teaches you to start thinking in the way you will need to think for your exams and when you are finally a nurse
* it gives great advice on studying and breaking bad study habits
* it has sample questions to illustrate the concepts they discuss, as well as rationales for the answers
* there are test exams
I feel like this has definitely given me an advantage & made me feel a little(!) less nervous about what to expect when my program starts.

It wasn't until I read this book that I started feeling confident while taking exams. This book is an easy read and really helps you to understand the exam questions better and not feel overwhelmed with the information. Nursing exam questions can be tricky and being able to pull out the important information is key. This book will help you do that.
