this book help me a lot i didn’t even have to answer 300 to   a day. I just answered the questions in this book and read it for 3 to 4x. You’ll gonna learn lots of concepts, normal values (arranged in a summarize order including diet plan of a patient, client positioning and uses and functions of diagnostic test of the client ) needed to pass the NCLEX exam. you could easily understand signs and symptoms of certain diseases needed for answering SATA questions with the use of its easy to memorize mnemonics….Most importantly, there’s no need to read other comprehensive books coz this book alone is the key and can greatly help you in passing the NCLEX exam….
