A 3rd Edition of the Evolve Reach Admission Assessment Exam Review is available. It can be purchased online at Amazon.com and other booksellers. See the Program Information document accessible from the Nursing Program Information page of this web site for details about the book. This book is not thorough enough to be a complete study resource. You will need to study other materials, such as your Anatomy & Physiology text, to ensure success on this exam. The book has some vocabulary lists, math tables, and an overview of exam content, as well as practice questions/tests. One copy of the book is now available to checkout for 24 hrs by De Anza Students with student IDs in the Reserved Books section of the De Anza Library (http://www.deanza.edu/library/). A copy is also available to use, but not check out, in the Allied Health and Nursing Resource Center (Bldg S-8, Room S-82, 408-864-8687).
