    I've been using it to study for about a month. The chapters are to the point, and I feel that the questions are excellent practice. The CD is also a great resource. I feel confident about taking the NCLEX.

    I used this book to review for my NCLEX-PN exam, which I took and passed with the minimum number of questions. Due to a lack of time, I only did the diagnostic test from the CD, and the book questions in chapters 1-55, to ascertain areas I needed to review more.

    I wish I had this book during my LPN year to use as a supplement to the learning activities through my program. I think my course test scores would have been higher.

    I plan to use certain pages of this book as a continuing reference as I start my nursing career, and will buy the RN version of this book to use this coming year.

    Yes there is no cd companion to the book anymore.it is based online where you need to register on their website. I love the book but not to fond of the questions. Thats why i purchased the kaplan qbank. Kaplan question are much harder and my scores arent great i feel like im losing hope in this test. Taken so numerous times and last test was near passing standard in all categories.

    I thought the Saunders CD with the 4th edition was too easy. Im sure Kaplan has a better questions bank. The 4th edition Saunders and the Kaplan 2012-13 Stratagies, Practice and Review were the only books I had to study for my nclex. I also used the nclex-3000 which was free online to do practice questions. I studied for about 1 month before the exam. Its good to review and study but I did end up with a bunch of questions on the exam I really didnt know the answer to and had to guess, was sure I failed it when it was over. Good luck iluvnursing07, hate that we have to go through the stress of this exam after nursing school.

    I used the 6th edition, and doesn't really have a lot of new things (my teacher has the 5th edition and we compared), I studied it and used the practice questions (minimum of 100 everyday) and it helped me to pass my board (I just found out trough quick results). Highly recommended!!!
