Which NCLEX review/study book is the best? Which is your favorite?

I'm pre-nursing for one more semester, but I'd like to get an NCLEX book so that I can use it through nursing school to hopefully help me understand the style of questions.

Thanks. :)

Two suggestions. First get Saunders to follow along with your courses, it also is great for content review when studying for NCLEX. Second, I recommend the Davis Success series of books to go with your individual courses (Mental health Sucess, Med- Surge Sucess, etc). I used both through my courses and found them very helpful. Good luck!

While I like Saunders, I think Reviews & Rationales is the best... It is much more thorough and I believe the questions in the CD are harder and make you think much more. :)

I'd say Saunders for content and Kaplan for strategy. The exam cram books are also good for content. But the NCLEX is not a straight content test its about thinking critically.

SAUNDERS for sure. If you don't remember much from school it is good for touching up. I also like LaCharity's Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment- makes sense, because for each patient you have to utilize these skills. I also used Kaplan's book. The questions were hard but prepares you well for NCLEX.
