Based on the new NCLEX-RN® Test Plan!
A complete roadmap to NCLEX-RN® success! Three distinct sections in the book plus a bonus CD-ROM show you the way.
Step 1 is an orientation and review of test-taking strategies with guidance for international and repeat test-takers.
Step 2 consists of 60 practice tests over six chapters, all with NCLEX descriptors. Each chapter corresponds to one the exam’s major subject areas, fundamentals, medical-surgical, ob/newborn, pediatric, mental health, and gerontological nursing. Each chapter also features specialized, stand-alone tests for pharmacology, management of care, and cultural diversity.
Step 3 is two comprehensive exams that test mastery of all subject areas covered in the book and on the NCLEX-RN.
"I really enjoyed the Kathy Ohman's Davis's Q&A for the NCLEX-RN Examination book. I never used NCLEX books to study for my nursing finals, but in my second to last semester I did, and received a 98% on my exam. I contribute that grade to the high cognitive level questions found in this book."—Joe Bragg, Student Nurse at Valencia College, FL
"I have 12 weeks until graduation which means I will be taking the NCLEX very soon. I love this book! I think the number one thing that I like is having the answers on the same page. In all of the other books that I have this is not the case, and I am constantly flipping pages to find the answers."—Chelsea Monaco, Student Nurse at Valencia College, FL
“For the past two years I have been using Davis's Q&A for the NCLEX-RN Examination. Out of all the NCLEX-RN question and answer books I have used studying for tests in nursing school, Davis's Q&A is the best book I have encountered. Not only are the questions challenging, but a detailed rational and test-taking tip is provided for each question and answer. Understanding the rationale to NCLEX questions is fundamental to passing nursing school and the NCLEX…I recommend it to all nursing students!” —Kaitlyn Farrell, Senior Nursing Student, Temple University
