    About the books, IMO, they are a total ripoff. I spent 800 dollars my first semester on all those books. The program goes soo fast that theres almost no way your gonna read all those chapters and remember everything. Even if youdo it wont help you negotiate the NCLEX style questions. After 3-5 pages of reading Im in outer space. I never religiously ready any books the entire program. I basically didnt even open 90% of them. I did study guides, power points, and millions of any types of questions I could get my hands on. Questions really helped me the best and is what I studied the most.

    I went from a hangin on for dear life to aceing exams as soon as I switched to only studying Saunders. No baloney! The program does a very good job of teaching to the NCLEX. Saunders does the best job on teaching you to take NCLEX style questions. If you follow the systems in Saunders that you are studying in class and do all the questions in the CD and do them well, not just flying thru them but also read rationels, then the exams wil become a breeze...

    Sikkema was tricky for me at first cause I wasnt armed with Saunders, then, I just started to smoke those exams. Unfortunately, I didnt use that for Ms. Mccay, who btw had some very tricky exams.
