    • Confidence level indicators allow you to indicate your confidence when submitting answers, providing valuable insight into areas where you might require further study.
    • UNIQUE! Practice in Study Mode, which provides immediate feedback, or in Exam Mode where the quiz is timed and results are summarized at the end.
    • UNIQUE! In addition to detailed rationales for each question, select questions include interactive, multimedia resources such as illustrations, animations, videos, audio clips, and study tips to help you master challenging material.
    • The engaging, easy-to-use interface ensures that you’ll be able to navigate through the program with ease.
    • Multiple mastery levels for each chapter, topic, or concept allow you to progress from one level to the next based on your performance.
    • Alternate item format questions — including multiple-response, fill-in-the-blank, prioritizing, graphic item options, chart/exhibit, video, audio, and hot spot — provide valuable NCLEX exam preparation.
