    U might as well enroll at a review center. if ur in the visayas regions, i highly recommend NG Review and Training Center. They offer comprehensive review. For your review books, i recommend kaplan, saunders 3rd ed and of course the cg guide...

    Unless you are going to work in a state that requires the exam, why are you even wasting your time taking it? It does not give you a license to practice in the US, and the more reputable companies want to see a passing score on the NCLEX exam, or you may find yourself working as a nursing asst over here for months and months and months.

    Yah I agree. If the state you're applying for doesn't reuire CGFNS, take the NCLEX-RN. It's the "U.S. licensure exam for nurses".
    It's time-saving/ affordable to take JUST the NCLEX-RN. Some just take the CGFNS so that they may have a taste of what the NCLEX is supposed to be like. In my opinion, the 2 exams are only 50% similar. NCLEX focuses on prioritization/ delegation of responsibilities/ application. CGFNS focuses more on "knowledge" of Nursing. My CGFNS result stated that I should study harder and esp. more on certain topics that have fallen below the ideal grade. Hah! So why did I pass the NCLEX RN Duh!

    My recommended books:
    KAPLAN +CD's
    SAUNDERS +CD's
    MOSBY +CD's
    ...nothing follows
    Local review books like GApuz are good for last minute review but be careful of typographical errors and obvious errors (ive seen quite a few)

    CGFNS guide + CD's(a staple if youre taking the CG)... Some questions from the book do come out.

    All towards up Pinoys!!!

    2nd best book next to Kaplan is Saunders. Also... try to answer as many practice questions as you can as u go along. I used to practice using CD's (interactive learning)... but be sure to absorb it all. Good luck!
