I need some NCLEX style review question books lol. I am only in my first semester but there was this one book on our list of recommended books to buy and its A BUNCH of questions w/ rationales and I find it VERY helpful.

I have the Kaplan

I just bought the Hesi & Saunders.

Are these any good or does anybody else have any other recommendations?

 I believe I used the Kaplan..but it was so long ago I can't specifically remember. I know it just said NCLEX on the cover, and cost a fortune. (part time working student).

Just remember that it's the ideal, not the reality. If the ideal, for example was to check your IV's every 5 minutes, when in reality it doesn't happen, your answer would be "every 5 minutes"..

Make sense? I wouldn't be bogged down with NCLEX now in your 1st semester. Things change over time.

I took the NCLEX this past November and passed first try. I used Lippincotts mostly, some saunders, and some kaplan. I also did alot of ATI throughout school.

I have the Kaplan 2010-2011.  I really like it because it teaches how to read the questions and break them down.

The Hesi book is very good. Also, check with your school and see if they have the Hurst Review. You can take it as many times as you would like once you pay for it, and its typically offered once per semester. They have a guarantee that if you take the review once or twice and do not pass your NCLEX on the first try, they will either refund your money or give you an intensive review.

Oh I'm sure it'll be helpful for the NCLEX but I'm not exactly worried about that just yet.  I want it for my exams because our questions are very much NCLEX style questions.
