I have the Review, and the Questions and Answers book. I like both of them very much. I am a bog fan of the Incredibly Easy series, I have 5 of these books.

I'm interested in getting several of the "Incredibly Easy" books also. Do you have the "charting, assessment, dosage calculations, medical surgical nursing" ones? What about "Fast Facts for Nurses"?

I could not have gotten through the second semester without Med/Surg Made Incredibly Easy!

I also have the Pharmacology and Pathophysiology MIE. The patho helped with some clinical paperwork, but the Pharmacology was no help (it did not contain patient education r/t the meds).

I looked at the charting book, and it did not seem useful to me. I am STILL looking for a charting book if anyone knows of a good one.

As far as care plans, I HIGHLY recommend Mosby's Nursing Diagnosis cards. They are customizable according to your patient's needs, and numbered to match attainable goals. They are also crossed referenced with medical diagnosis to make it easy. I just grab a card and copy the pertinent information. Best tool I have bought yet!

I have it, and the main problem I see with it is that the questions are organized by pathophys.. Which to me, meant I knew all the answers in a specific area would point to whichever pathophysiology I was working on, so it didn't help as much as Lippencott's or Kaplan's did. For example, I'm working on CHF, and I am asked a question, but not sure of the answer. Since I am working on the chapter covering CHF, I guess "CHF" and am correct! EVen though the rationale is there, I don't take the time to question WHY I was unsure and "just guessed," since I am correct. But of course, upon reflection, I see my "guess" was correct because the book was organized in the way it was.

My memory is very photogenic, so after reviewing a section in this book prior to a test in nursing school, I did well, but once test was over and passed, the knowledge gained flew out the window! And while this book helped me as far as reviewing for a test in school (knowing we were covering for example, CHF) it didn't work so well when ALL topics needed review. (as in NCLEX prep) There is a book called "NCLEX made Insanely Easy" by Sylvia Rayfield and someone else (!?) with pictures and such that was an excellent review, but only supplemented the Kaplan and Lippencott books for me.

Find the book that FEELS best for you, and you'll do well! Gather even more books if you can afford them, and practice at least 100 questions a day, and you should be fine! Best of luck to you! :)
