Lippincott was the way to go for me. There are sooooo many questions plus it came with an extremely helpful CD. Took the NCLEX once and passed with 75 questions.
I didn't go to any Kaplan review classes. Just reviewed the whole Lippincott book. GREAT REVIEW BOOK!!!! I recommend it 100%.
Good Luck on NCLEX.

A nurse at work who recently passed just told me the exact thing last night.

Hi Monie. I used these CDs and found them helpful: Smith, NCLEX3000, Saunders, and Kaplan CD trainer. And the Hesi is good for review of your knowledge base too, it comes with a disc and tells you your probability of passing NCLEX, however, you can only use the disc a total of 5 times. Good luck, get 'em next time.
