I do not think an NCLEX review will be much help if you haven't finished nursing school and learned the necessary material.

If you are having trouble understanding certain material a review course will not help instead seek out the professor and ask them for help or seek out other students in the class.

I took Hurst Review after finishing nursing school to prepare for the NCLEX and it would have done NOTHING to help me pass nursing school as it assumes you have the knowledge and condenses it so that you can pull from it on NCLEX.

I have to pass Hesi exam at school every semester. It doesn't help if you practice a lot of questions?

I did both and scored over 1000 on the hesi.. Hurst is a good overall review, Kaplan is good question practice.

It does help to do a lot of questions, as many as possible. I did not use Kaplan during school, but used it to prepare for NCLEX. I have classmates who used it all during nursing school and they said it was helpful. I did use Hurst throughout school and especially for the exit HESI, on which I got a score of over 1000.
