    Kaplan Review is really good if you are more worried about test-taking strategies than boning up on your nursing info. I would suggest doing it, and getting a review book or CD Rom to supplement (NCLEX 3000 is really good for brushing up on your nursing info).
    Do both of those, and you probably can't go wrong.

    I took the review class the monday following graduation... I felt it was very helpful. It reinforced what I already knew and boost my confidence going into the boards. I thought it was worth it. (my two cents )

    Good luck to you.

    I took the Kaplan review in May. I finished nursing courses May 2003, but had to do 6 makeup clinical days in the fall of 2003, due to health reasons. I feel Kaplan helped me tremendously in both test-taking strategies AND boning up on things I had forgotten or things I wasn't really clear on (like acidosis, etc). For me...it made all the difference in the world! I passed NCLEX June 9th! I would recommend the course to anyone!!!

    I used the Kaplan book, and I found it helpful, but I didn't hit any review classes so I couldn't comment on those. But the book itself was great, esp since it had a computerized practice test which at least semi prepares you for the situation in the actual test, kind of.
