I agree...the Prentice Hall Reviews and Rationales Series is the best!! I have the Maternal-Newborn Nursing on my desk right now...it covers everything from "Introduction to Maternity Nursing" thru the whole pregnancy and onto the Newborn Experience. What I really like is the Nursing Note tear out page in the back...a laminated (sorta) cheat sheet of important things like newborn VS, newborn measurements, lab values, apgar, and fetal development by gestational age in weeks. Each of the books in the series has the Nursing Notes.
I like them bc they outline the information and tell you what is likely to be on the NCLEX AND they have NCLEX questions. I have three right now,
1.Maternal Newborn Nursing
2. Psychiatric Nursing
3. Child Nursinsg
Those are the three classes im takingt his semester so I am using them as study aids for now, then later I can use them for the NCLEX. I also like them bc they have these detachable sheets int he back that I take with me to clincial and they have a CD with compainion website...every helpful!
