    I have read many threads regarding PCCN preparation. I was hoping to start studying for the exam to possibly test in about 3 months. Many people have recommended different study material. I was wondering, since most of those postings were in the past and most of you have probably tested by now, if you could enlighten me on what worked best for you.


    I have ordered AACN Essentials of Progressive Care Nursing and Critical Care Examination Review.

    I was hoping to also order a study program and have narrowed it down to David Woodruff's PCCN Review or Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio's CCRN Study Review.

    I had read in some postings, that there is a difference between studying for the CCRN and PCCN. I have heard only good things about Laura Gasparis Vonfrolios review. Do you think her review is OK for a PCCN study guide.

    Thank you in advance. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I have bought the Brorsen PCCN review book. It seems thorough. I am now looking for an audio program that I can listen to in the car since I drive quite a bit. After reading about David Woodruff program on this post, I checked it out. I believe the CD offered are for following along a textbook. Can anyone help clarify if his program can be used (understandable) in a car audio system alone without having to follow along with the text? Wish I can get my hands on a copy to see what it is like before spending all that money. Thank you in advance for anyone who can help.

    I have an answer for you in regards to his CDs, but if you're trying to get a grasp on his teaching style, search his videos on Youtube (ed4nurses). I think he is a phenomenal educator...I just wish his PCCN review package was cheaper!

    I have used David woodruff CDs as well as the AACN CDs as well. However the blue print did change since I took my exam not by much. I think a few disorders were added and a couple taken out!! Anyone interested PM me!!
