ATTN NCLEX TAKERS: Only book you need...

  1. *** word of advice to all nclex takers: ***


    all you need to pass your boards is 1 book:

    pearson vue nclex-rn (barnes & noble - $60) or (nclex-pn for lpn's) - $60


    yes, pearson vue (the center where you will sit for the actual exam has their own review book)....


    why people buy saunders, lippincott, kaplan, etc is beyond me!!!!! :smackingf


    best $60 ever spent....trust me!


    all the best!


    spread the word.....save people time & $$$$

    comprehensive nclex-rn review prentice hall nursing

    by: mary ann hogan


    i passed with this book.

    the lab values are the exact values you need to know since pearson vue is the one testing you. don't learn lab values from any other book....if this book says k+ is 3.5 - 5.1 or norm glucose level is 75 - 115 (just examples), then that's what it is.

    the sample q's are identical. you can choose q's a la cart to focus on areas where you need more help. then when you sit for actual exam you will see the same layout as the sample q's (gray screen, how q's are worded, even the select all that apply are similar, etc)

    best of all are the rationales, you learn so much with their rationale after each q. they are to the point and very precise! i love this book.

    had i known sooner, i would not have wasted 100's of $$ on books when in nursing school. i never read them anyway only to cram the night before exams.....

    hi,

    do you have the isbn number for this book? i searched online at barnes and noble website, they have two books.

    1. prentice hall's comprehensive nclex-rn review / edition 1
    by: mary ann hogan

    2. pearson reviews & rationales : comprehensive review for nclex-rn
    by: mary ann hogan

    which one of the above is the right one??
  10. by   NsgRx27
    the one i have is titled like this in this exact order from top to bottom:

    prentice hall nursing comprehensive review for nclex-rn reviews & rationales.

    mary ann hogan

    isbn-13: 978-0-13-119599-8
    isbn-10: 0-13-119599-9

    it's from 2008 and i still use it now even for my excelsior exams.

    fyi: pearson vue / prentice hall make the same book. they have a website inside the book called: www.mypearsonstore.com .......hope this helps. i heard there was another edition out now like 2011 or 2012 but don't quote me on that.


    also, the book was $50 not $60 now that i'm actually looking at the book. hope this helps. it's def worth stopping by a bookstore to see how great this book is. i don't think mine had a plastic cover.

    Is there a PN one??

    i read the reviews on this this book and it validates all that you said and more. she has a 2011 edition coming out in July for $34 you can pre-order now.i ordered a copy. cant wait to dissect it lol.

    my instuctor who taught at Kaplan reviews sessions told me that since Nclex change their exam in 2010, its not worthwhile to get a review book published before then because i will be wasting time and studying beneath the level of Nclex new standards (that made alot of sense to me).
