    Hi. I can't give you specific information because I didn't take it with either one, but my friend took the review with Sylvia Rayfield and swears by it. She had 75 questions on the NCLEX and passed. She said that Sylvia's class is user friendly. Teaches you the basics. Good luck.

    I took Hurst Review and I loved it. I passed NCLEX on 1st time w/ 75 questions. The review is 4 days and covers med/surg, ob, and psych and you get a 5th day dvd that had mgmt/delegation and pediatrics. Marlene makes learning the test strategies really amusing so you dont forget them. she also breaks down things into simple terms. You also get a cd with a mock NCLEX with rationales to take at home. The cd also has all kinds of useful stuff like lab values, and other basic reference things you can print out and study. Hope this helps.

    I took the nclex exam in Georgia. I studied for a full month for five hours per day, Monday thur friday. I took weekends for myself and family. I attended Hurst review at the begining of Jan. the review was great I would recommend it to anyone. I also used sauders comprehensive review for practice test as well. Be sure you know your medsurg well, I don't recommend spending too much time on other specialties like peds, ob etc. since you don't normally get many of those types of questions. If you get tested on them they are more priority type questions. Finally, I sugget that you plan on studying for the exam don't plan on being lucky it would happen!
