Study Guide Review
Often for standardized tests, the key to acing them is mastering the techniques of taking the test. In this regard, Kaplan’s NCLEX-RN Premier 2015-2016 is superb. Offering both tips and strategies for taking computer adaptive tests generally as well as specifically for the NCLEX-RN exam itself, this book spends considerable effort in working to improve test-takers’ abilities to ace the test.
Nevertheless, readers should note that this manual is less helpful as a guide to reviewing the substantive areas of the test. For that, theSaunders Comprehensive Review book is far more ideal. Instead, this guide’s strength comes from the effective strategies it offers in taking the test.
The book offers a full-length NCLEX practice test as well as an answer key and detailed explanations for all the answers. In addition, it offers access to a second NCLEX practice test online. Exam-style questions broken down by each of the sections of the NCLEX-RN test, DVD video tutorials, and mobile study resources are also provided. Further bonuses include a guide on becoming licensed, tips for taking the test after previously failing it, and a guide for international nurses.
All in all, this Kaplan book is likely the best NCLEX review book to complement the Saunders Comprehensive Review. Alternatively, for those who already feel comfortable with the content of the test, it’s an excellent strategic guide on how to ace the exam on its own.
