Use everything you can get your hands on. I took 3 review courses: Fuers, Drexel's and Kaplan's. Kaplan's was the best. I also had audiotapes, VCR tapes, DVDs and many books. I passed the NCLEX after passing my Canadian boards 20 years ago.

A good fundamental knowledge of pathology is invaluable. I read Isac Asminov's A&P in my relaxation time. He makes it interesting.

A lot of the exam seemed to be psych. Remember open ended questions.

A lot of it seemed to be aimed at assessment.

Good luck!

Hey...I just took (and failed) for the second time...although I did a lot better this time around according to my NCSBN report, I now know what to expect for the "new" format that came out April 1st after my first attempt. I CANNOT stress enough....practice PRIORTIZING!!! Although I wish I had just imagined it, there were a TON of them! Whatever you can get your hands on that covers this, I highly suggest practicing...can't hurt right?! I just bought a book for about $40 at Barnes and Noble called "NCLEX RN REVIEW" by Margaret Dahlhauser (2007) that has practice questions in the book and on the CD-ROM about priortizing care, just in case you want to know. I think it will be a good tool for practicing that part of the exam. I really didn't seem to come across any other books about specifically priortizing patient care except for this one, hopefully this helps.

I used KAPLAN NCLEX-RN 2007-2008 edition, SAUNDERS and PRINCETON REVIEW to help me pass. All were beneficial with NCLEX sytle questions CD's. Good luck!!
