Reviews about the ebook:

  • Kimberly Delmundo:
    This book was amazing and I highly recommend it! I bought this book roughly three weeks before the NCLEX-PN and judiciously read a chapter or two (because it’s just THAT short and easy to read) a day. I just passed my NCLEX two days ago with a minimum of 85 questions! Keep in mind that I’m HORRIBLE with written tests. The Cram Sheet was also very useful. Definitely worth the money. Good luck to all those taking the NCLEX! You’ll do amazing. 🙂
  • Min:
    This book is amazing, I like to use it when making flashcards for my tests, it breaks down everything into much simpler terms, everything is right there in each chapter, I would call this a lifesaver for me. It has everything you need as a nursing student as far as information goes, practice questions are a bonus as well as the first page of all land values & normal ranges, which is a must know of course.
  • Rebekah J Murga:
    This book was perfect, because of this book I was able to pass my NCLEX exam first attempt! The book is divided into chapters, each of them provides the information in simplistic words, but they are very helpful. A lot of quizzes are in the book and it’s a code for your computer so you can take it online. This is a really helpful book, but you should find other books and materials to help you study such as one is not enough.
  • Addie:
    Great study book. I’ll let you know after I take my boards.
  • Robyn Joy:
    Passed my NCLEX first try in 85 questions! I read each chapter and did one of the practice tests every day, starting about 4 weeks before I sat for my exam.
  • Angelica:
    THE REVIEW IS UP TO THE POINT, EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND THE TOPICS ARE VERY RELEVANT. THANK YOU
    SO-OOOO MUCH FOR OVERNIGHT THE BOOK. WE NEEDED IT ASAP AND DESPERATELY!!

    WE LOVE YOU!!!!! THOMPSON AND HER STUDENTS.

  • Vincent:
    Great rationales for NCLEX questions. Breaks down the answer to its questions. Good review resource.
