    Which practice tests are you referring too? Im assuming you took the BCEN prep exam and got a 68-71 ?

    I dont think Im going to pay for the practice exam from BCEN. Do you think it will help, as far as learning content? I am taking the 5 practice exams from the ENA CEN book and feel like that should be sufficient as far as practice exams go---thats over 700 practice questions!!!

    I took the CEN last December passing with a 97%. I attended a CEN review course by Mark Boswell and would highly advise the same if you get a chance. I thought the test was quite easy after the prep from the course and I did no further studying other than re-reading his book the day before the test. Mark also made some of the videos available on youtube, take a look, well worth your time. http://www.youtube.com/user/boz287 is the link for the youtube site.

    Sorry it took me so long to write back...I did pass the CEN on Friday. Felt relatively confident going in but once some of the questions came up I almost started to panic.
    Really wished I had done a practice exam on top of the studying I did, but in the end I passed it.

    Good luck to those about to take it!!!

    Anything that surprised you on the test? Did it meet your expectations? What were your scores on practice tests?
