PCCN review questions ? - page 2

by dxbtocvg

I plan on giving my PCCN test in a few weeks. I have been reviewing material from woodruffs course/CDs...but he does not have a whole lot of questions. Conceptually the material is good but i feel i need to practice more... Read More

    I know you dont qualify to sit for the ccrn.



    The pass ccrn book will help--you need the cd.

    I believe there are 1200 questions.

    i have the book myself.

    i need to go look thru my cd collection and see if i can find the cd, however.

    There are other ccrn books, even tho they may be old. springfield and the gasparsis gall--findable on amazon.

    those two have the questions.

    along with the pass ccrn cd which i believe would need to be printed out.

    i would use all 3 books for that test--no, i am not certain how close the pccn is to the ccrn, but i imagine they are relatively similar in difficulty--much analysis-type questions.


    no, i wouldnt pay that for that.

    altho it is difficult to find on the website, med-ed seminars has a NEXT program online for like $25/month or something

    sign up and watch the videos a couple times thru.

    i aint too fond of cammy tho

    or buy the ccrn and cmc cd versions for like 150 a piece.

    the next training is like 70hours of video, and at 25/month, a pretty good deal if u ask me.

    but you still need the thousands of practice questions, imo

    Does the Pass CCRN! book have a lot of questions in addition to review material? Kaplan also has a PCCN book but I don't know how that compares...

    the 'pass ccrn' book primarily is a gigantic outline-type review book with activities like crossword-type, match, fill in the blank stuff at the end of the chapters.

    the questions are not like the exam.

    i cant find my cd, but the cd is supposed to pull from a pool of 1000 questions and has rationales. the cd is like the exam format.

    i believe the cd content can be deconstructed, because i have her cen book , and i DO have that cd, and i was able to deconstruct the xml file, printing out the questions--but THOSE questions on the cd were kinda lame imo--way too easy

    but the cen book wasnt a gigantic review book, but was questions with rationales.

    the cd has like another 400 in addition to the 1200 in the cen book

    strange how she did it this way

    anyhow, her cen book seems way too easy nonetheless

    in closing, the book itself is primarily a review book. the ccrn-style questions are on the cd
