NCLEX Review Books: Are Old Editions Useful??

  1. Hello~

    I'm studying for the NCLEX and I'm only using one book right now (Saunder's Q&A Review, 3rd edition) and would like to practice with another book.

    I know the NCLEX exam changes every year (so I hear), so would it be a bad idea to study from older editions (2003, 2005, etc) I find at the public library?

    The exam doesn't change every year. The pool of questions vary every 45 days Hence why you have to wait before you can resit the exam. Every 3 years (I am sure it is 3 years) the exam is reviewed and changes may be made but is usually released by NCSBN before the date is due
