Do not read this assuming this comes even close to the material on the Psych GRE. You would be better off reading all the psych books individually which is luckily what I did.

The guarantee that they offer assumes that they are the cause of a higher score as opposed to confounding variables which would be in play if a student had to retake the Psych GRE which remember is only offered three times a year. If that assumption is made and one falls for it, I would assume that they probably did not do too well on the research section of the exam.… (més)

>> Don't be afraid of the ACT. Why? Because we know what's on the exam,
and we know exactly how you should prepare for it.>>
((yay, comforting words))

Our Girl-teen will be the first of our kids to take the ACT. Currently she's a sophomore so next year the 'excitement' officially begins and right now her guidance counselor is suggesting the ACT for her, rather than the SAT.

At one point the SAT was king, but now more universities are turning to the ACT. You would think the two tests would be similar but they're not-- Although it should be noted that the SAT is changing to be more ACT-like. One of the major differences that persists is that you can take the ACT without the writing part. Other differences include the science section that the ACT has, and I've been told, and read online, that the reading selections are more straightforward and less tricky than the SAT.

AS FOR THIS BOOK, this is the first Kaplan ACT book that I've examined. I'm more than familiar with their SAT and GED books, but the only other ACT I've perused is by Grockit. Taking all this into consideration I can say that this book is different. It's approach is more streamlined. The other KAPLAN study guides include DVDs (not all), online access to tests, and a lot of introductory chit-chat. This book has none of those things.

What you get is 8 tests, score pages, and the pages with explanations. Unlike the other Kaplan I've seen there is no pre-test. You just begin with the first test, figure out what you don't know, study up if needed, and then take the second test... and so on.

Surprisingly, I find that I actually like this approach. Or I would for myself. I'd rather just get started than have to take a pretest which will try to divine what it is I don't know. This approach though won't work for everyone. I think it will for my daughter because her dad and I are going to be helicoptering around, ready to do the analysis for her. Others may prefer another approach.

Each test, by the way, is provided in a way that mirrors the real thing. You are told to stop when you finish a section and no go on to the next. This will hopefully make the whole testing situation seem familiar, when the time comes.

SUMMARY
A straight forward streamlined approach. Tests and Answers and Explanations. I can actually see using this book in conjunction with other books or programs. Or for the more competent student, as a means to get into the test taking frame of mind.

**review copy

My life is currently filled with young people in college preparing for various degrees and careers. My own children, nieces and nephews and family friends. As a consequence I have looked at, read and reviewed quite a few of these Kaplan test prep books. (Along with those of Grockit and others.)

THIS book, more than any of the others focuses on HOW to take the exam, and after reading through the book it's clear why. Unlike your SATs, CATs, and even tests you take in nursing school, the NCLEX-PN is not about measuring intelligence. It's about integrating the knowledge you gained in school and using it. Therefore the exam won't be divided into topic sections, and it will require knowing what to look for and how to interpret the questions.

There will be questions like 'which of the following would indicate gestational diabetes is likely': and then you are given the test results which range from 40mg/dL to 180 mg/dL.

But there are also questions about what should take priority in assessing a patient.

THE MATERIALS
=====================
--THIS BOOK is well written and very clear. To me these authors gave the clearest and best explanations for test strategies that I've ever run across in the Kaplan line.

The authors take into account how people learn and try to lead the student through the process of identifying their best approach to the NCLEX-PN material.

THE ONLINE EXPERIENCE was nothing if not frustrating. Theoretically you can download an e-version of this book onto your mobile device. You will be using Adobe Reader to do this. I found an explanation for how to download Adobe but no links nor instructions for how to download the book. Unless you are luckier/smarter than I you will probably have to call their number. It is an 800 number.

The online experience also gives them the opportunity to up-sell you to classes and other products.

Note that when I signed up that the online aspects are only free for 3 Months. So from April to July.

SUMMARY
After reading this book and sharing it with a student, I have to say that I can't imagine taking the NCLEX-PN without some sort of assistance. This test is not your standard SAT exam. And I would think almost everyone would benefit from reading about and learning the testing strategies.

That said, you might also want to pick up a book with more sample tests.

The reasons that this book did not get 5 Stars is two-fold. First, the online part expires in just 3 months. (So don't go online until you have to.) The other reason was that the online experience is not straightforward. One problem I faced was that the silly process could not recognize that my email was the same in the first slot as the second. (And yes, refreshed page and began again, and then had my husband make sure there was nothing I was missing.) I had to use his email to sign up. Go figure.

Overall... RECOMMEND.

**review copy

It's been very interesting reading and evaluating the Kaplan NCLEX PN and RN study guides. Unlike the many other SAT and ACT guides that I've looked at --by Kaplan, Grockit, and others -- these NCLEX guides focus very tightly on how to approach the tests. These are not "recall" exams. The question on the NCLEX RN test involve judgement and critical thinking. The student is expected to absorb the information that's given and then decide what's important, looking for a pattern and identifying a problem or solution.

Because the critical thinking process is so important more of the PN/RN books focus on your mindset and how to approach the problems.

One interesting observation that came up with my pre-med niece is that she realized that reading this book before any big accreditation course was even looming helped her to reexamine how and what she was learning. There's a lot of recall, she told me, but now I'm going to ask the teachers to help me understand the material in the larger context.

THE MATERIALS
=====================
--THIS BOOK is well written. To me these authors gave the clearest and best explanations for test strategies that I've ever run across in the Kaplan line. (I'm including the NCLEX-PN book here.)

-- THE ONLINE EXPERIENCE you might find frustrating. I know with the NCLEX-PN book I could not locate where to download the digital version. There is an 800 number you can call. I didn't do this as the book download is only good for a limited time.

SUMMARY
I would think almost everyone would benefit from reading about and learning the testing strategies taught in this book. THAT said, I should note that it's entirely like the 2015 edition. If you aren't going to use the online features then you can probably find last year's version cheaper.

There are only 2 Practice Tests so you might want to pick up yet another guide so you can practice some more.

Overall... RECOMMEND.
