Our class of 60+ students chose three different paths:
2) Hurst Review
3) None, just book reviews...
In addition, several took both Hurst and kaplan. The Kaplan class was first, and many people finished frustrated and bored.
The Hurst review folks were WONDERFUL! The classes were interesting, and stated flat out that their only goal is to get you to pass the NCLEX the first time, not to teach and review everything you should have learned in nursing school.
Of the two people who took both, one approached the Hurst instructor during the first break and stated that she had already learned more in one session than during the whole Kaplan review.
Everyone who took the Hurst review passed the NCLEX first time with only 75 questions. Of the Kaplan group, there are several who did not pass, and many who had to go the full 265 questions. Of those who did not take a review class several have failed.
On a personal note, I took the hurst review, and thoroughly enjoyed it! And I passed with 75 questions!
