The best one for you is the one that is best. No one can answer "which is best" because many people have passed with each of them....as well as failed with each of them.

Have you previously attempted NCLEX? If so, what did your CPR say about your weak areas? If not....what do you THINK you need the most help in? That will help determine which program is best for you, not just a blanket "tell me the best one" question, honestly.

There's no "magic" study book/guide for the NCLEX. If you peruse around All Nurses you will see equal arguments and recommendations for all of them (even for some you've never even heard of.) I would go to the library or if you have a tablet or kindle- livebrary.com and see if they have any NCLEX e-books for you to borrow. This way you can learn what system "works" for you the best. I would also suggest making your own study guide (along with a study schedule.) Putting things into your own "words" and mnemonics will really pay off in the end. I did that, and I'm incredibly happy I did (it ended up working for about 10 other friends who said that my study packets helped them as well, lol my OCD payed off.)

- Also when reviewing NCLEX questions make SURE you look at the RATIONAL! Not enough people teach themselves to really do this, they would rather "argue" in their own head about "why" they think they were right. I would purchase a notebook (you can get it at the dollar tree) and literally write down, the rationals to the questions you got wrong, along with any other points/facts you remember about what they're asking you.
