Case management study courses and materials

  1. Hello fellow nurses,
    I am planning on taking the certification for case management this year. What are the best books and study guides to buy? Does anyone have any they are wanting to sell?

    Thank you,

    I just took the CCM exam last week. I studied the glossary off the CCMC site. I studied the Case Manager's Handbook by Catherine Mullahy, and the Case Managers Study Handbook by Denise Fattorusso. I did the test and read the books several times. The test is odd and more critical thinking. My preliminary results was pass. I took it four years ago and failed. I was new to case management and did not study. It seemed easier this time.

    If you've been a case manager for four years, you know a lot more about it now. So many people think they'll take a certification examination that is supposed to demonstrate expertise in a specialty without ever having worked in that specialty. If you have a reasonable experience in a specialty, you ought to be able to pass the cert examination. Congratulations!
