    From what I can recall, there have been several threads like this before, but I don't remember the names of them.

    I use Saunders Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-RN and I love it. It has the CD and everything. It works *wonders* for Pharmacology!!!!

    Many other students use Mosby and Lippincott as well, but it's really a personal preferance. I suggest heading over to Barnes & Nobles and looking through a few.

    I use the Saunders Comprehensive review and have found that the questions tend to be much easier than the types of questions I see on my exams. It does help me, but I've been trying to find a review book with tougher questions. A friend of mine has been using the Princeton Review series and she has nothing but good things to say about it.
    I think it is a matter of preference. Like BSNin05 said, head over to the bookstore and check out several types. You're bound to find one that fits your style.

    Good luck!

    I've seen many errors in the Arco series, so here's one to stay away from IMO.

    It has a review over topics and questions. There are lots out there take a few minutes to look at them in the bookstore before deciding. Good luck!
