    DescriptionClearly separating the overwhelming array of medical-surgical nursing content into manageable sections as they are taught and tested, "Med-Surg Success" provides core medical-surgical concepts with related NCLEX-style questions. Like the NCLEX itself, the questions are presented at the application and analysis level, and address the nursing process, management, prioritizing, and medications: critical thinking and how it relates to test taking is emphasized throughout. Organized by body system and specific diseases, "Med-Surg Success" builds on the successful skills and strategies that have already helped thousands of students in Fundamentals Success and Test Success. The disorders chapters provide practice questions focused on the disease process and a comprehensive exam that includes the processes covered in the practice questions along with other topics involving the system addressed. Other chapters similarly cover emergency, perioperative, and cultural nursing; alternative health care and end-of-life issues; and the last chapter before the comprehensive final exam includes questions and test-taking hints specific to pharmacology and the administration of medications.
