Help! I would like to know your insights regarding review classes. I'm a foreign nurse from the Philippines currently residing in Chicago. I'm waiting for my documents to be processed. What is the best nursing review center should i enroll on? also, when do you recommend I take the said review classes? I don't know where or when to start. You're responses would be really appreciated :up:

I didn't take any review class but I could recommend you a book. I used Saunders Comprehensive Book 5th Ed (the yellow one). If you need a refresher of all the principles and systems, it's a good book to read. It has a CD that comes with it that has tests to assess your knowledge and formulate a study plan and schedule based on that. It also has practice tests.

That's what I used and I passed :)

You can read this while attending a review class if you want to. You can also start reading it while hunting for a review center :)

Good luck!

The schedule was 6 weeks. But I was procrastinating (hahaha) and may studied for at least 3 months?

It depends on your dedication and your personal schedule. I was kinda lax and inserted play time in study time. Haha. It also depends on your preparedness. You can try Compre tests and time yourself. If you think you're ready, go for it. :D
