Summary, etc.:
There are several key features to this handbook. Each question includes the correct answer, a complete rationale for all responses, and a test-taking strategy to help develop techniques for locating the correct response. Each question includes a page reference to an Elsevier textbook to allow for further research and study. All alternate item format questions are included, with multiple response, prioritizing, fill-in-the-blank, figure/illustration, chart/exhibit, and audio questions to prepare for the wide variety of question types on the NCLEX-RN examination. Organization by nursing content area provides a logical, effective review to use throughout the nursing program. Pyramid Terms define key terms at the beginning of each major unit or chapter. Pyramid Points within each chapter highlight content that is important in preparing for the NCLEX-RN examination. Pyramid to Success sections provide an overview of major units or chapters and specific content related to the latest NCLEX-RN examination test plan. Pharmacology is emphasized with 13 pharmacology chapters, a medication and intravenous calculation chapter, and a pediatric medication calculation chapter to reflect this priority content on the NCLEX exam. Introductory chapters cover preparation for the NCLEX-RN exam, test-taking strategies, the NCLEX-RN exam from a student's perspective, and transitional issues for the foreign-educated nurse. A comprehensive exam consists of 265 questions that cover all content areas in the book and mirror the percentages identified in the NCLEX-RN examination test plan. A companion CD allows practice in quiz, study, or exam modes, with questions selected from content area, integrated process, category of client need, or alternate item-format type.
