Hello Everyone! I will be completing my LPN course in three weeks, and want to know which book is best to purchase for the review. Currently, I have Mosby's and Saunders, but from what I have been reading here, they do not... Read More

    I just took my NCLEX-PN. I had so many books, Sauders, Mosby's, LPN review (pearls of wisdom), NCLEX-PN made incredibly easy.
    I also bought NCLEX exam prep by Pearson Education.

    I studied from all of them, especially the areas I felt weak in.

    I used Saunder's the last week and pretty much went through the entire book.
    One of my instructors from school said the secret was doing as many questions as you could, the more the better also read the rationale as to why the answer was right or wrong. I would come home after work and do 200-300 questions in the evenings.

    Use the CD's for each book, just to get used to being in front of the computer for periods at a time.

    Good Luck.........:spin:

    I had the same question about what books helped? Most threads I've read say Kaplan is the way to go, but I don't have it. I'm using Saunder's and just about to start with Mosby's illustrated study guide. Hope this will cut it because I only have 10 days for the big day. I don't want to buy more books I can barely handle the ones I have.

    Hi guy's,

    I took the PN-nclex in June 2008 and failed. I am stressed out, depressed and not sure what to study or how to study. My lively hood depends on me passing the NCLEX-PN retake. I do not know what to do anymore. When I first took the test I was confident and positive that I had done a good job. Since I discovered my score I am home sitting around beating myself up and I don't feel like I have made any progress with my life or my studies. Please, can someone give my some advice about how to study, what is the best studying guide. I am presently using EXAM CRAM and Suanders. I answer the practice questions and I still only get 65%, sometime a 70%. My 45 days will be over on the 19th of July and then I have to schedule my re-take ASAP so that I can find a job.(my mortgage depends on it). Please, Please, any suggestions are welcome. I am desperate.

    Thanks,
    Dfroll

    dfroll,

    since you have taken the nclex-pn, can you remember what on the test you had problems with?

    I remember my instructor saying the more questions you do the better off you are. Please remember to read the rationale as to why the answer is correct or incorrect.

    Remember the think ABC's, Maslows, what is the question asking you? Please remember not to think what if? The question has everything you need to know in regards to aswering it. Remember in the NCLEX hospital questions you have everything you need, enough staff, supplies, and you are only worried about that one patient, unless the question is one about prioritizing.

    Remember to review your labs, what is the norm and not., review your math, review meds, (if you don't know what the med is, remember what system is being treated on that patient, then try to breakdown a key part in what the name of the med)

    Best of luck, hope this helps a bit.

    What a blast from the past!

    I'd still say that Saunders was the best one I found for both my LPN and RN. I always thought the Nursing Made Easy series while very helpful if I needed the quick and dirty were just kind of, well...Easy.
    Good luck.

    Thanks. I think the ones used in schools are too bulky. I need a concise one.
