CEN test questions?Register Today!
- by nursecass Mar 10, '12Could any of you please recommend a book/source that is mainly CEN practice test questions? I found when I studied for NCLEX that reading out of the book did me absolutely no good, but doing repeated practice tests and then reviewing what I missed or had questions/hesitations about afterward was really beneficial for me and I'd like to do the same for the CEN. I really liked Saunders when studying for NCLEX-I just did hundreds of practice questions. Any ideas? TIA!
- Mar 12, '12 by the1anonlycarolI was the same way. I studied for the NCLEX using the CD w/ the practice questions. I like instant gratification. Question. Answer. Not having to look in the back of the book. Or doing a whole test and then reviewing answers afterwards. So I studied for the CEN by purchasing the online review questions/tests on the ENA website. I think it cost me around $60. Only I failed the CEN by one or two questions because was surprised to see so many questions on triaging mass casualties (which was not in any of the questions I studied from!). That and ABG analysis. I broke down and purchased a CEN review book... includes access to online questions/tests. Hopefully that does the trick...
- Apr 25, '12 by sandiego12I bought the ENA 4th edition with 5 practice tests with answers and rationales. It also comes with two 175 question practice tests. I also bought a practice test with 150 questions from the CEN website. Further, if you go to you tube you can find Mark Boswells review test lectures for each individual subject. I just took it today and passed. Hard test but doable if you put in the time.
- Jun 25, '12 by nd4sprnI did the exact same thing and passed it on June 21, 2012. I think this is a really good plan. I don't think that just answer tons of questions is going to help unless you are really familiar with the core concepts. The youtube stuff really covered that well. I did find that the questions that I bought from the BCEN's web site was a really good gage of how well someone will do on the actual exam. I pretty much got the same grade on both. I really felt the exam was a real test of critical thinking skills, that's why I think (even though there is not actual experience requirement) a min of 2-5 years experience, becuase alot of what critical thinking is based on is aquired knowledge and experience.
