Potter & Perry Fundamentals of Nursing Study Guide

  1. Do any of you guys use this book for school? and if so did you buy the additional comprehensive study guide that compliments it? and if so would anyone be interested in helping compile the answers to the questions in each chapter and posting them online for everyone that needs them?

    I have some chapters completed that I can post online if enough people are interested in helping.

    We had to use this book in the first semester. I have the comprehensive study guide, but I had never used it.

    Used the textbook in Fundamentals and had the study guide but did not open it. It is still on my bookshelf collecting dust.

    It was hard enough to keep up with my studying, clinicals, skills practice and my life and family. The study guide might have been a great resource but I found that just keeping up with my notes was enough. So much was thrown at us in Fundamentals I felt overwhelmed a lot. Good Luck with class and give the study guide a try - it couldn't hurt - only help increase your knowledge on the subject.

    We are using that text, it's a great book! But we were not required to buy the study guide and not many people did. I likely wouldn't have time even if I had bought it!

    The book is crap, and you need the study guide to get anywhere with it. You're not going to believe the amount of BS in that thing, there's no way to prioritize any of that nonsense.

    Get the study guide and memorize the questions and answers. A good chunk of them show up on the quizzes and tests

    Any port in a storm.
