    If you go to the Pearson Vue website, they have a NC Nurses Aide handbook for candidates of the exam. It gives sample questions and has a list of every task that you could be asked to do along with the correct process and steps. I haven't taken the test yet since my CNA class won't begin until September, but if you study and have done the tasks, you'll be fine.
    Good luck!

    I took the test two years ago, after being in fairly large CNA class. We all ended up taking the test at different locations and what we found out was that it really does depend on the location and who you get for a proctor. Its sad but true. The skills are all the same but the bigger the place the harder it is. For example I took mine at a small place in a small town. To pull the curtain, we had to just yank it down once (it wouldn't go any further). Some tests take place in simulated hospital rooms and any holes in the curtains they count you off. But even at my place there were a few that had taken it there with other proctors and said failed. Its really the luck of the draw. Good luck.
