Best if: You like practicing NCLEX questions and reading rationales as a way of learning and reviewing. You know your content fairly well, and you want lots of practice.
Saunders also has a Q&A book! It boasts over 5000 questions, so the number of questions matches Lippincott’s Q&A. Which is better? It’s hard to tell. They are both very reputable, with a lot of positive reviews. Here’s a key difference: Saunder’s presents rationales with the questions, while Lippincott’s presents them in a section after each set of questions. A lot of people feel this is much more convenient (just cover the rationales rather than having to flip back and forth.) In any case, Saunders Q&A is a great way to practice for the NCLEX.

I graduated in May 2013 with my BSN and took my NCLEX about 3 to 4 weeks after I graduated. I used botht he Saunders book to study for my Exit HESI and during my last semesters of nursing school for exams more than for NCLEX its self. I liked saunders and choose them because I liked how many questions and practice tests were offered in the book and online through the CD/online resource. I found them really helpful for my final few semesters of school and the exams taken during them. I didn't feel the provided me with enough information regarding the NCLEX and how the questions would be worded unlike other review resources I used. My big thing with saunders was the practice question and I was surpised at just how many questions the book contained for the price. It is worth the price you pay for it, and on top of questions you also get a compact quick review to help you answer the questions correctly. The online resources provide even more practice tests/questions. Out of the two Saunder's book this one was my favorite and worked the best for my study style of lots and lots or practice questions. I like to be able to find the answer to questions I got wrong or don't know and saunder's gave me enough resources to do that. I do reccomend this book for an NCLEX review or even as a study book during nursing school.
