Just a question: is the 4th edition of Saunders Comprehensive Review still updated? Because,what I have here is the 4th ed.in which I borrowed it through a friend and I am thinking of buying the 5th ed. And for those who have purchased already the 5th edition,what are the changes they have made in the 5th?

The fifth edition is more tuned toward the new version of NCLEX. You can read about the changes on the book cover or in the book description on any bookstore websiteor better yet, the website of the publisher.

i bought the 5th edition saunders and it's definitely worth it so go get it!

i actually failed my boards last month in november & i had no idea the newer edition was released the month before. so i bought it immediately when i heard it existed and right away i saw questions similar to those that i had on the new nclex.

new changes:

- on top of the "pyramid points" they added "pyramid alerts"... really important points/hints written in red font all over the book because they're typically tested on in nclex (and i can vouch for that ;) ). they remind me of hesi hints (if you ever read the hesi book).

- they added sound / video / audio q's on the cd... which i did encounter on the test.

- "priority nursing actions" which are basically like the re-order & sata questions on nclex... and i kid you not, it had one of my re-order questions almost exactly like i had it on my nclex.

i will say some of my classmates passed using the older 4th edition, but i wasn't so lucky. i will say that many practice questions are repeated in this book. but they did add & change up a lot of them. arguably, you don't "need it", but i would play it safe and stay updated... i mean, coming from someone who didn't pass. haha

good luck! =)
