CCRN Study Guides
While we really recommend going through some of the popular reference guides used for the CCRN examination when you are studying for your certification, it might be quite a challenge to find the time and energy to read through all of that material. This is why we also suggest using a study guide because it really makes life a little easier.
The study guide that we think gives you the most bang for your buck is the CCRN Exam Secrets Study Guide.
It has a couple of really great features on it. But there are three of them that we think were the most effective or really worth the money:
- Coverage of Adult CCRN, Pediatric CCRN and Neonatal CCRN topics – yes, they covered all three exams in the study guide so we don’t have to go scrambling about for a different book or reviewer when we are moving on to a different topic.
- VERY Good Test Taking Tips – some were obvious like try to answer all the questions in the time that you have, study hard. But these usual tips plus some that they also suggest are very powerful in giving you a better chance of getting a good score in the test.
- Practice Tests – Of course, all that studying is no good if you have no idea what to expect, right? Well here you go. The study guide also throws in some pretty good practice exams in to the mix just to get you familiar with what the exam is going to be like.
- FREE UPDATES! – Okay, we said three but we could not resist this fourth one. Yes. The publisher promises to provide you with free updates to the study guide. No more worrying about whether or not that study guide you borrowed from a friend contains the most up-to-date material.
So there you go. Our top reasons why we just love this study guide. If you want to know more about it, just check out the publisher’s website for more information (and trust us when we say there is a LOT of information there!). Just read through the details of the book if you need to know more or just scroll all the way down towards the end of their page if you’re interested in purchasing. Here’s the link:
To further enhance your experience, they also offer a separate flashcards pack. As you know, flashcards are very powerful learning and memorization tools. Here’s the link to that:
Does your budget disagree? Don’t worry. We also recommend this book:
Pass CCRN is one of the most popular books around when it comes to reviewing for the CCRN exam. It is relatively more affordable than the study guides above. However, it can get a little tiresome to read through this huge volume. It contains over 800 pages which means that there is a lot to memorize and study.
But overall, it is a proven tool and a classic among people who have taken the CCRN exam.
