I passed the exam in February. The only study materials I used were Fitzgerald. I did the online review which came with a study guide and 2 additional books. I definitely felt like Fitzgerald really prepared me for the test.
Thanks for your response. I have been doing the Fitzgerald review cds, workbook, and regular book. I'm just terrified of taking the exam especially all the research, legal, and cultural stuff. I thought a question bank would help boost my confidence. Congrats to you!
There is an EXCELLENT resource for test questions, which are similar to the ANCC boards, which I believe, are harder than the AANP. It is FamilyNPprep.com and you can select the type of tests you want. I paid for all 20 exams and passed the ANCC with flying colors. I don't know what my actual score was, but I knew the material very well. And I KNEW that I knew it as I was taking the exam (April, 2012). This is the second time I have taken it, took it in 1999 the first time, and it is MUCH harder now, with a lot of questions on legal issues and theoretical issues. I would suggest doing all of the tests so that you can get very familiar with the theory questions (all types of theory, from undergrad to nursing). Good luck!
Thank you so much for your response! I just bought the adult package and they seem like the best questions I've gone through based on what I've heard people say about the exam. I really appreciate your help!
