This book is good for the very basics, for maybe the first two semesters of RN school! It has great information, but not what I was looking for as far as improving test grades in restorative/ med-surg nursing. What HAS helped with that is Mosbys flash cards and books!! Highly recommend those for anyone struggling with NCLEX specifically. Good luck!!!
Really good aide in addition to text book. Explains different types of conditions in simple terms and every aspect whether it be signs and symptoms, pathophysiology, treatment, and how to interact with your patient.
