NCLEX Study Guides

I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can always come to for all of your NCLEX needs. I will add to it as I learn more, but you will notice that I will reference this page quite often. I recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience.

Study Books

   I started this book (the second time around) 3 weeks before my boards.  I appreciated the chapters that specifically discussed NCLEX exam structure, and how to truly “read” each NCLEX question.   The content review chapters were brief but comprehensive. The questions at the end of each of the chapters provided thorough rationales for the correct answers, as well as reasons why the incorrect answers were incorrect.

This is one of the best NCLEX review books I’ve bought. It contains a lot of questions for each area of nursing, i.e. the GI tract, cardiovascular, respiratory, OBGYN.   This particular book is great because it has a few NCLEX exams at the back.  It comes highly recommended for those studying for the NCLEX or those trying to improve their test taking skills for nursing classes, (my teachers focused on NCLEX style questions during all 4 years of college).  Unfortunately, this book does NOT contain a mini-outline for each topic, as the Saunders book does.

Flash Cards

This helped me pass my Exit Hesi and the NCLEX (The Second Time).  This set of flashcards are a good review and are broken up into categories for ease of use and review.  These cards have roughly 3-4 questions on them with the rational on the back. They are all in black and white and are housed in the box that you see in the product image.  These cards are amazing for when you only have a few minutes here and there.

I would recommend this product to any nursing student that is serious about passing the NCLEX the FIRST time.
