5Awesome, Easy-To-Read Book
By Todd7
I bought this book for my OB/PEDS class for my nursing program, and I must say that it takes two complex areas of nursing and really breaks them down into small,manageable pieces through easy reading. This book's writing style is very tangible, and therefore makes for an enjoyable experience for the student. Easy reading yields better results, in my opinion. Furthermore, the pages contain special boxed-in areas highlighting very important and relevant nursing "alerts." At the end of each chapter, there is an NCLEX summary of key points that groom one for the big exam. Again, it's in an easy-to-understand format. Learning can be fun when the student isn't overwhelmed or intimidated by the complexity of how material is presented through some of the textbooks out there. This book is very inviting and effective. I recommend it.
