Summary

The NCLEX-PN Practice Questions Exam CramThird Edition, provides 1000 questions for the nursing student who wants to be better prepared for the exam. Completely updated for the 2011 changes to the exam, this new edition replaces the successful first edition that proved so popular with nursing students. Anxiety about the exam is high among nursing students. Most students realize that 'the more practice questions to study, the better.'The Exam Cram questions cover every topic the student will encounter on the real exam including some "new format" interactive questions. The new format questions ask the student to identify organs by hovering the cursor over an interactive diagram of the human body. Even though these types of questions are less than 2% of the exam, the Exam Cram gives the student as much experience with the real exam as possible. The NCLEX-PN Practice Questions Exam CramThird Edition offers a cram sheet for last minute study as well as the CD testing engine for that testing experience, a proven combination for exam success!
