"From pediatrics to geriatrics, the one constant in my test prep was always my Saunders, and it also helped me pass the 'dreaded' NCLEX the first time." (Brett L., RN). "This book made many complex topics clear, concise, and easy to understand. The practice questions were also great and the best study tool I had when it came to studying for the boards. I know this book played a key role when it came to passing the NCLEX the first time around." (Erika R., RN). "This book helped me get through every exam during nursing school. I used the practice questions to help me prepare for course exams, computerized exams at the end of each semester, and the NCLEX-RN! I don't know what I would've done without it!" (Angela S., RN, Elsevier Study Ambassador).show more
