This book is written for nurses preparing to sit the National Council Licensing Examinations (NCLEX), a prerequisite for obtaining a practicing certificate to work in most of the USA. This version is for those seeking license to work as an LPN, therefore it is not at RN level. However, it is a very useful resource for nurses in many areas of practice and would be a valuable addition to any library or facility, from tertiary hospitals, medical centres, smaller hospitals, schools of nursing libraries and individuals. The content is comprehensive in scope; material is well presented, easy to follow and covers all areas of practice. It is suitable for a beginning nurse, yet is equally useful for experienced nurses to review and update their knowledge base. It would also be useful for nurses changing their area of practice for it provides excellent information to enable a quick mastering of the new information. The books strength stems from the experienced writers of the Units; experts in their own fields. The way it is set out, makes it easy to follow. Each Chapter in a Unit identifies the specific relevant points covered in that chapter; includes multichoice questions to test learning and then provides the answers with an accompanying rationale. The questions are structured in a way that reflects Bloom and requires not just recall but actual application of knowledge, encouraging critical thinking in the process. Learning is clearly focused on the needs of the patient or client in any particular scenario and what the nurse would be expected to do. The accompanying CD provides a range of opportunities to test knowledge, reviewing the various categories of focus and the correct answers to reinforce learning. The CD includes a 100 question practice exam. I will find this book useful in my work as a Nurse Educator. Sue Bye Nurse Educator Christchurch Hospital
