Sylvia Rayfield Review Course

  1. The Sylvia Rayfield touts about the extremely high pass rate (98%) so I ordered the cd-review course. It has 11 cd's--only a total summation of about 4 are actual review info. The other summation of 7 are the instructor carrying on about this patient she had, this child she adopted, the patient on a vent that actually asked her to stay----Don't order this crap unless you ask when it was recorded...and is there a return policy---anything less than 6-months old recorded--forget it.
    The review course has the potential to be outstanding---just too dam many exaggerated examples

    I feel your pain...should have went with Hurst Review. They have taken over a bunch of reviews that Sylvia used to do because when people take Hurst they don't go back. Hurst has 99% pass rate and the review could not be better, take it from some of the post you see here on the forum. www.hurstreview.com. Hopefully you can get your money back! Good luck anyway.

    Why am I not surprised to hear from you, TexasCCRN:chuckle . I'm really thinking about heeding your suggestion of taking the course prior to starting clinical.

    Go with Hurst Review (www.hurstreview.com). It's the best review out there. I took Kaplan before I took the NCLEX the 1st time and it cost $400, but they guarantee you'll pass or you get your money back. Well guess what... I got my money back. I read posts from TexasCCRN about Hurst so I decided to look at their web site and it looked great. They didn't have any "live" reviews in my area, so I decided to do the online review (it costs $195... i think) and so far I love it. Marlene is fabulous! She has you laughing and learning at the same time. Plus the online course gives you an outline to follow along with her lecture, a section to type notes while you watch, and the ability to ask questions. It's great! If you have any questions let me know!
