The word aassessmenta can strike terror into any student. However, providing evidence of knowledge and skills for professional practice is an integral and essential part of university life as a nursing student. This book helps nursing students better understand the processes of assessment so that every student can achieve their potential in their studies. It looks at each of the major forms of assessment including essays, exams, portfolios, presentations, OSCEs and practice assessments. It specifically addresses the needs of nursing students on new degree courses and therefore gives a clear insight on how to succeed as a student nurse.

This book is all about succeeding and steering nursing students. There are useful activities, examples of good and bad assessments, case studies to show where things can go wrong from the perspective of students and mentors, and some timely advice for working with other students on projects and presentations. I give this book five stars, and would make it six if I could.
