    Sure. Glad to be of some help . I used the third edition, blue book. Comes with a CD that contains test questions. Do both. The book with the CD may be quite expensive but it is certainly a good investment. Well...as most people here, we don't get to study in the most ideal setting and with ample amounts of time. Only now i can unwind and think of what i should do next. Prior to the NCLEX test, i was working as a nurse, then stopped my work to take care of my mother who unfortunately passed away just recently. Lugging around a 6 pound (?) book and not being around the house (where the computer is- *sigh* no laptop for me) naturally forced me to study quick bits here and there. The hospital was my key study place. Woohoo. That was fun The important thing is not the amount of time you study but the quality of your study. It also depends on how much you already know and if you are a fairly good test taker. No one i know really felt 100% ready to take the NCLEX. *Chuckle* I think some of us underestimate ourselves but this feeling of not being good enough sometimes pushes us to study or work harder to compensate. Anyway, you are in a good place to get advice. I found this place very useful indeed God bless.
