There is a reason the new edition of Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RNŽ Examination has been called "the best NCLEX review book ever." Essentially, you'll find everything you need to review for the NCLEX exam under one cover - complete content review and over 4,200 NCLEX examination-style questions in the book and on the free companion CD! Don't make the mistake of assuming that the quality of the questions is the same in all NCLEX review books, because only Silvestri's Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RNŽ Examination includes the kind of questions that consistently test the critical thinking skills necessary to pass today's NCLEX exam. And, what's even better is that ALL answers include detailed rationales to help you learn from your answer choices, along with test taking strategies that provide tips for how to best approach each question. It's easy to see why Silvestri is THE book of choice for NCLEX review. But don't just take our word for it - read any customer review or ask your fellow classmates to see why Silvestri users believe that there's nothing else like it!
