I'm using Saunders mostly to study for NCLEX. I'm using the yellow (5th ed) book and Kaplan's content review.
For Qs, I'm mostly using Saunders and getting an average of 80% on the content exams/assessment.
I scored 95% on my exit HESI.
I take the NCLEX in 2 weeks. What are my chances if I keep this up?

funny you ask that. i keep getting solid 80% for the vast majority of the content area quizzes. i am hoping that it resembles the nclex, b/c that sure would be reassuring!

Anybody else? I'm dying of curiosity.

I would also love to know the answer to this. I find that Saunders helps me recall (and retain) the material much easier than something like the NCLEX 4000. I find Saunders to be far more effective for studying. However, I wonder if the questions on the NCLEX itself will resemble questions found on the NCLEX 4000, which seem to me to be more difficult than Saunders. I look forward to seeing some answers on this as well.

Saunders is great for content, but in all respects the NCLEX is much more difficult and most closely resembles Kaplan. I recommend Saunders for review, but Kaplan to get a feel for the actual test (the screen even looks the same).
