NCLEX Book...which one?

  1. Hey everybody! I just completed my first semester of Nursing School and hope to graduate May 2008. I was looking at NCLEX review books today but I have no idea which one is the best one to get! There are some that say "Guaranteed to pass", so I was tempted to buy one of those but I wanted to get on this board to see what everyone had to say before I bought one. But anyway if you anybody has a suggestion on which one to purchase, I would appreciate it!! Thanks and Merry Christmas to everyone!

    I used Saunder's Comprehensive Review for content and found the Kaplan RN 2007 Strategies book to be helpful for test taking skills.

    Saunders and NCLEX made incredibly easy

    I read both of them and passed the PN NCLEX on the first try!!

    Exam Cram-RN, Saunders, and Kaplan. I had what seemed like 100 different books but I think this combination is the best. You will find that everyone will have a variety of choices but you will see Saunders and Kaplan both repeated here often. The Exam Cram is what I stumbled on (not many have heard of it) but felt very fortunate to have discovered it and would also buy the other Exam Cram Q&A if I was to do it all over again. I liked the book that much! IMO these three will prepare any one with any learning style or weak area.

    It's a winning combination!

    Good luck this spring. Just think it is almost over, but that dreaded NCLEX makes the final difference. Don't under estimate!

    I think I have more NCLEX review books than text books....Saunders, Lippincott, HESI, Davis's, Kaplan, The complete Reviews and Rationales series, Straight A's, Incredibly Easy's, The Coloring Books, X made simple...etc...I like all of them...each for a different reason

    Saunders!! Stay away from Lippincot's NCLEX 3500 - - SO many errors and the rationales are really poor.
