Who wouldn't benefit from knowing what their test is going to look like? Being prepared with Fundamentals Success meant I hit the ground running. I aced my first test when most of my classmates were facing their first ever-academic failures. Nursing school is nothing like anything I have ever done before, memorizing text books will do little to prepare you to be a critical thinker. To succeed you must be able to apply the knowledge in multi-step process...the nursing process! The FA Davis books take you there and they do it quickly, because we nursing students needed to know it yesterday!” —Corrie Cyre, Hillsborough Community College Southshore, Student Nurses Association President
