    "NCLEX Made Easy"
  4. by   scrubnurse
    I graduate in May and several of my nursing friends have highly recommended "Frye's 3000 nursing bullets" It isn't questions, but 3000 facts that you should know. My nursing friends swear by it and said that while taking the NCLEX, several things were familiar to them from that book.
    If you come across anything good, share with the rest of us!

    Taber's if you don't have it. Look at the different NCLEX books and pick one that you like the layout of.

    And of course a fiction book for fun.

    I would recommend KAPLAN's nclex preparation book. I purchased in my last semester of school and wish I would have had it during school. It is set up as an NCLEX prep book, NOT a review book. It teaches you how to break down the questions so that you can get the correct answer. I took an NCLEX prep class at school for 3 days and didn't learn as much as I got out of the Kaplan book. Lot of my friends said the same.

    Saunders is another good one. Each chapter has a review outline, then questions. All answers give rationales (of course) as well as reasons why the other options were incorrect. It also comes with a great cd-rom and a money-back guarantee if you fail NCLEX. Good luck!!!

    i agree with amyb, saunders is a good nclex. are you prepping for nclex in the near future or just looking for another source to use as a study guide.

    another consideration is taking the hurst review...i've heard many good things about it. it's not cheap, but you pay once and you can sign up for more than one session.

    you're right. there are a few versions, and i should have been more specific. the one i'm talking about is saunders comprehensive review for nclex-rn (2nd ed.). it has a green cover and includes the cd-rom.

    I just took NCLEX two weeks ago and passed with just 75 questions. I used Saunders but I thought Kaplan was alot better as far as teaching you how to break the questions down and answer them. Saunders is good for a review on all the body systems so you know disease processes to apply. But make sure you know prioritizing and delegation!

    I learned that I passed the NCLEX on Friday. I used the newest Saunders 3rd edition blue cover (comprehensive review w/ CD-ROM) I found it extremely helpful. I believe it helped me more than the Kaplan Review. So I recommend Saunders.

    Good luck.
