- Jun 26, '09 by Sensoria17I used all of them except Mosby. They were all useful but Saunders alone is sufficient. I also used Exam Cram Q&A quite a bit. I liked how all the questions in each test were random and not topic specific.
- Jun 26, '09 by DogCrazyI like Saunders and Exam Prep from Pearson. Good luck!
- Jun 26, '09 by gma85I used exam cram. I went through the entire book and that plus some of my school books is all I used. I passed first try.
- Jun 27, '09 by DaniLPN2RNI used Saunders only. Exam Prep from Pearson is good too. Don't be overwhelmed with the choices. Choose what works for you. Take a deep breath. You can do this!!
- Jun 27, '09 by new2lifeThanks for the info, i have saunders 3rd edition 2005. Would you suggest getting the 4th edition 2008?
- Jun 27, '09 by AshiPandaI used the Exam Cram by Pearson and a lot of the questions FROM that book I saw on NCLEX. I studied that book for a few days before the test and I passed with 85 questions! Good luck!
- Jun 28, '09 by DaniLPN2RNI don't think you "have" to have the 4th edition, but it will have the most up to date information. If I remember correctly the 3rd edition came out in 2006. So, it's not 'really' old by any means. I wanted the 4th edition originally, but it was backordered when I needed it. My advice, no matter what method you use to study, don't wait too long to take the test. Take it as soon as possible! You'll do fine. Just take a deep breath!!
- Jun 28, '09 by new2lifeI thank you all for the input, by the way are there any other tips or hints to know or focus on? We could never remember everything!
- Jul 1, '09 by BobylonI had Saunders, but stopped reviewing it after a few days, as there seemed to be a lot of differences between what we learned in school (taught through the hospital I'm working for) and the book. Was just confusing and frustrating me, so I stopped, just made sure I was well rested, well fed, and well hydrated before the test .... passed at 85 questions. I'm sure any of them are good,.....just in my case, I felt it was stressing me out and peace of mind going into the test was more important to me than cramming - I felt that, by the time you finish school, you either know it, or you don't.
