  1. Hi! Guys, Is anyone here using a Mary Ann Hogan Book 2nd ed for Nclex Rn?

    I will be planning to sit for the test on August may be in the end of the month, can you share your experience how you study and use this Book.

    I am using this book since April I start to read the content as well the PQ and i read also my incorrect answer and the rationales, until now i am stuck in the PQ self study so i dont know if i am doing it right, Because theres is so much PQ like about 5,000 so if dont Pass i did not stop doing the self test quiz.

    And also i see my scores were about sometimes too low and sometimes too high, and i cant maintain the required passing grades which is 80%, it seems that i am very slow learning and adapting!

    Or maybe i just need more Patience and be Faithful and committed to my studying but i am, I reaalllyy need to Pass my Exam Badly,Financially and Mentally so exhausted..

    so Any Thoughts,comments and experince are welcome to share,Thanks and Goodluck

    This book is better than Saunders and has a free 1 year online ebook version.

    use the Chapter Quiz for practice questions including the 200+ Comprehensive practice questions at the back pages.

    Soul~Thanks for the reply .and for the info "oh ok" I have a good book for my core content, yes your right I have one year online for free access and my concern was it takes for me to finish one topic it took me 2 weeks or more plus PQ and read the rationales.. So I don't know if I will cover it and finish 'til August, I did Focus since April and by June I need to attend a Class Review in Hurst. Can you tell me how many Topics did you cover each day and as well the PQ.? Thanks

    i only use the Chapter Quiz and Comprehensive portion as well as the Management portion. Hurst is better and concise for content review. I got lazy reading the Chapters.

    its has a straightforward nclex bullet tips in each chapter. plus a very concise than the detailed Saunders book. Chapter Quiz and comprehensive questions are slightly harder and informative than Saunders. overall its a subjective recommendation.

    I used Pearson. I think I like it very much. What I did was read the highlight fast and answer the questions to the end of the chapter. If I got it wrong then I went back to read it slowly and make sure I understand it. However, I also took Kaplan and Hurst. I learned the concepts to answer the questions from Kaplan and content from Hurst. I used both for reinforcement and repetition into my long term memory.
