    Hi,
    Our school made us buy Saunders review and I've found it to be the most difficult one that I've tried so that is probably a good sign. I'm sure others will write in with their opinions. Jules

    what 10th edition r u talking about?

    i read Lippincott book cover to cover and i tried also the CD, my suggestion to you is to stop using this reviewers, it is a waste of time, use Saunders and Kaplan instead. many of us who passed the nclex with only one take use this books. goodluck

    why do you say this? what is bad about lippincott

    i didn't say it's bad to use lippincott, the only thing is, if a person who is preparing for nclex is to prioritize and use reviewers which he or she believes that can help a lot. i have read lippincott, kaplan, saunders, hesi, and other small books cover to cover which wasted a lot of my time. so i know already what is the best book to use. when i took nclex, i didn't even think hard enough to answer the questions, i finished it less than 35 minutes, it was so very easy for me.

    I would use an actual NCLEX review book rather than a med-surg textbook. The drawback with the med-surg textbook is that you may get bogged down on information that is more relevant to practice than to the NCLEX.

    I believe its not reviewer book that really matter in any exam,s success but, the ZEAL & DETERMINATION. I,m a foreign nurse with no access to these opportunities but pass cgfns with kaplan nclex rn review 2003/2004 ed . Have the believe that you will succeed and you will surely do. WISHING ALL US THE BEST
