    All the NClex reviews books! Look for ones that are categorized by topic, and those that have explanations to the answers. I know you won't have to take the NClex for a few years but it's the best way to study for your nursing school exams.

    Not a textbook, but get ready to do a lot of flash cards! A lot of the stuff really does require hard core memorization and flash cards are awesome for that.

    Good luck my dear!!

    I wish I had used the Saunders book (my favorite for NCLEX studying) to study for med-surg!

    I start the LPN-RN program in August, I already purchased Saunder's NCLEX review book. I'll use it to study from for every exam.

    Taber's cyclopedic medical dictionary is also a must have.

    I also purchased the saunders nclex and it seems like it would really be helpful in studying for exams as well ad prep for nclex
