Hello everyone So I took the AANP in March 2011 after taking the Fitz course, and failed (personally I didn't think I was ready), but I thought I would try. Then I purchased the Barkley Assoc CD... Read More

    Congratulations on passing your exam!!!!
    I am so delighted to have so many great people like you come on and give such great advise. Thank you so much for all the information and for sharing your experience and thoughts. It is VERY helpful. I went onto the website you used, but used the ANP (Adult) test instead of the FNP as that's my major. Nevertheless, it has great test taking questions as well. Thank you again and I hope all this information will help myself and others pass the exam.
    Good Luck everyone!!!!

    Hello, I passed the AANP exam first try a few days ago... I had come to this site before and it made my test taking anxiety worse so I studied non stop for two months... And nearly none of it was on my exam... Mostly stuff I skimmed over the first month...I felt it was more a critical thinking than a knowledge test.. I over studied and I remember my difficult questions because I looked them up to make sure I picked the right answer... I did Holier and Fitzgerald cd review... Fitzgerald just give u straight knowledge but Hollier does give u how to assess and diagnose the disease... I did Maria leik review webinar which was the most comprehensive of the reviews... But only helped me with two questions because I had did the above already.. Plus Hollier and Fitzgerald review book twice, a pediatric review book, parts of a women's health review book, and bates review book for pa once...like I said waste of time...if I could do it again...I would do it like this and got same results quicker... 1. Maria leik webinar, but don't listen to her learn all your milestones.."' 2. I'd get Hollier Cd n book) *dont just get cd... Her detailed syllabus goes over assessment n diagnose...read the book listen to the cd,s she goes over the hep markers, shift to the left, pediatric milestones and viral *better than the rest 3.I'd do Fitzgerald review book once for basic info... Do Hollier to practice the critical thinking...(everything Fitzgerald talks bout in her review course you can get that n more from reading and doing her $50 review book) actually the straight knowledge questions was covered in her review book not course... Some of what I had wasn't covered in any review book but I read up on a few topics I thought were important and they were six questions on them...which is a lot compared to the 90 percent of the things I did study wasn't on there.. 4. I'd do that in 4 wks n test... I only did two exam's n brown book with the cd because after I took the first comprehensive I noticed some of the answers they gave were just wrong...and they have good question but if you maybe learning the wrong thing it's not going help you in the end especially if you don't know it's wrong... those specific what percent questions in brown book none of my friends had a question like that...if they fix the errors I would do that book instead of Hollier review book but not instead of her the home cd... 5. And then remember it's not school u can get an f on this exam... You only have to get 500/800 that's less than 65 percent... You can def do that!!! Good luck

    Hey Janet inbox me... I guess we were in seminar together... I'll go over some of those diagnostic reasoning questions with you and tell you how I broke them down... I think a year of studying you are good on that... U probably need to work on getting past the mind tricks they try to play with questions

    Congratulations!!!!
    I am going to take the AANP exam first week of April and I feel like I can't get over the "tricky" questions. I've been using Hollier and I like her material. I already did Fitz. and Barkley. I feel like i know the answers, but second guess myself. I also feel that when I took the test twice, the questions were worded in a confusing manner....does that make sense? Maybe I'm not a good test taker anymore. A/w, I thank you for the advise and the help you have shared. I pray that I pass, I need to.....STRESSING OUT!!!

    I just want to let everyone know that God allowed me to pass the AANP exam today!!!!!!!!! I am so happy and glad that I can finally put that test behind me. I would like to thank NPluvsalsa for her help and advice. Hope 1272 hang in there you WILL PASS the exam. I saw a few questions from the Hollier review book worded the exact same way. For all that have passed it is a great feeling and Congrats! For those of you that have not passed I know that it is a bad feeling and it is okay to fail because if you trust God He will pick you up! Prayer and fasting works I am a witness! John 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. I trust Jesus and I asked Him to allow me to pass and He did it!!!!!!!! God Bless everyone!
