When to purchase Saunder's RN-NCLEX?

  1. 0
    I am taking my Chronicity exam Friday, so I am still in the early portion of my EC program. I am hoping to do one exam per month from here out (don't know HOW I am going to make it throught the reading material that fast but I need to get this finished before summer!) and I read in a previous post that someone also early in their studies is reviewing RN-NCLEX. Has anyone done this and did it help them for their nursing theory exams and Lifespan exams? I started to think this may be an exellent idea to get a headstart on some material (and I am all for any MOTIVATING idea!) especially if it would benefit exams now, but don't want to waste time either. Thanks!

    I have used it for all of my exams and you even see some of the questions from the NCLEX book on the exam. Good Luck!!

    My plan is to read a chapter of it a day. That way it's easy, low pressure and when I really need to review something, I have good idea of where everything is in the book. Kind of like a daily "nursing multivitamin".

    Of course, those who have done it (rather than still working on it), may have other ideas.

    Does anyone know which edition is 2010? I can find several 2 & 4th editions on ebay, but that is from around 2007 (for like $5!!). Worth it or better to get the new one?

    I saw a 5th edition at Borders yesterday. Get the most current -- the NCLEX had a bit of an overhaul in April, so you'll need the newest.

    I used Saunders also, whatever test I took for Excelsior there is a correspodent chapter. The Health safety in Saunders was spot on for the exam. Best resource I used.

    Thanks so much! Testing now on Thursday would have loved the review from this but it will come in handy for Repo!

    There are some used ones on Amazon -- looks to be less expensive than eBay. Good luck on Thursday!!

    I also used Saunders early on for my exams, it was very helpful. I guess I should get the newest edition as well.

    How many NCLEX guides are usually purchased? It seems like I see "Saunders" pop up most often on the boards, is this usually the best one? My local bookstore was able to get if for me within 3 days for $58 so I thought that was pretty reasonable.
