    I have the HESI NCLEX RN book and the Saunder's NCLEX review book. I usually study the lecture powerpoints and use the NCLEX study books for additional information to help me understand the modules. I prefer those books over my textbooks.

    I graduate December of 2013... really concerned about my dose calculation test that I have to get a 90 on. I haven't did them in a long time.

    I have the Saunders nclex book too. I like the book a lot, plus it has great reviews. Also, my Med-Surg Success book by Colgrove is great for nclex style questions

    There is an incredibly easy line and they have a book that helps with medical math and dose calculations. I was able to buy a book off Amazon for pretty cheap and it has helped me as well as a few of my fellow students. Good luck and congrats!

    Thank you all so much for the info. I am going to be ordering books tomorrow. Do the NCLEX books you suggest have a CD that has practice tests that can be done on the computer?

    You're just starting a different path-- thinking like an RN is not the same as thinking as an LPN, although I fully realize that you won't appreciate the difference until you've been out of school a few years. For now, humor me. I think it would be a lot more productive if you started focusing on the RN thought processes, and that means a lot more understanding the whys of things and less preemptive worrying about the task of passing the NCLEX.

    Get the NANDA-I 2012-2014 immediately to start getting a leg up on care planning (this is also not what you think it is). Free 2-day shipping for students from Amazon.

    Thank you for your advice. I wanted to know about the NCLEX books because for transition class all the questions were in a NCLEX format so I wanted to get use to that style of questioning. Our transition course was nothing but careplans which was good because it got us use to completing them in a timely manner at clinical. I just want to order all the books I will need ahead of time and I figured it would help to Jane a Nclex style Med surgery book available
