Quote from Tanzanite
I was wondering if any of you purchased this pricey item, and if you did do you think it helped? I'd really like to find out if it is worth the $400.
This is the honest truth: 4 people (myself included) have taken Kaplan and all of us failed NCLEX on our second attempt. I can also honestly say that I could have spent a little more time getting the content down, like for things such as Addison's disease, etc. 3 of us took the Kaplan online course, and 1 person was at the live site. But, I have heard others singing the praises of Kaplan. I have the Saunders Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-RN 2nd edition. It's by Linda Anne Silvestri. It's a light green book. It comes with a CD w/LOTS of questions. The book has 75 chapters (Kaplan book that came with my online course has 7 chapters). This book goes through fundamentals, etc. At the back of the book, there's a 300 question exam to take. I have had this book for some time. I didn't use it to study for NCLEX though, because you see, I'm a bit of an idiot
I am using it now though. The chapters are relatively short, but there are some that are LONG, not too many though. All in all, it seems like it's a good book. I have never read a poor review about it either. I can't say the same for Kaplan.
