This book has been very useful since the day i received it. Out of all the NCLEX books this one is the best! I really like how it is organized and written. This book is an excellent source for the NCLEX exam. It helps you think the way you need to for the exam, and offers rationale and tips to help you answer tough questions. It is easy to review and it doesn't contain unnecessary details. Strongly recommended.
