i've done kaplan test taking strategies.. currently reading saunders comprehensive review 5th ed, and after LaCharity. I would like to ask for opinions or advice on whether i should add ExamCram to my list of resources. Although I fear that i might get overwhelmed with too much study material.. hope to hear some informative responses.. thanks!

Those are a lot of books to read. When i was studying for my NCLEX, i watched the hurst review videos and study my notes from the videos; did a lot of questions from kaplan qbank and i made sure that i understood the rationales; and did a couple of saunders questions coz i was running out of qbank questions. Kaplan prepared me well.

Go to the Kaplan website. I think it costs around $450. You will be overwhelmed if you skip from one book to another all the time and don't concentrate on one at a time, or one area at a time. I would start with the Saunders book. Lots of people don't even get another resource besides Saunders.

thats a lot of resources...the kaplan qbank by its self costs 299 dollars....up to you to decide if u need it...

but i think saunders..lacharity and if u can find one other book with great application questions or maybe the kaplan qbank....

keep doing saunders questions...reading all the rationales and looking only at a comprehensive book for a particular topic u find interesting...they to stick to 3 to 4 review books...... but find a resource that has strong application type questions (sauders/exam cram doesnt in my opinion)
