    Ok Lunah I have been dwaddling, so not like me! But I am gearing up to take this test again. I took it once in September almost blind (no study), did not pass. Took the GRE the next day(that is where my study efforts were concentrated) and did really well. The time has come to take this test again, So I am hopefully going to do a lot better this time.

    I'm scheduled to take the CEN in June and I'm really nervous, I have been studying, but sometimes I feel like giving up, this will be my second go around and would hate to fail it again...any advice? Thanks

    I found that doing the practice exams questions were very helpful. My job had Jeff Scholhems CDs I listened to his lecture. Very helpful. Study study. Ive had Co workers take the test without studying. I didn't think it was too terrible.

    Hi all,
    After 20 years of ER nursing I am going to attempt to take the CEN. Along with being a TNS and recently completed my BSN this is the next step in my career before I retire LOL. Wish me luck as I suck big time when it comes to test taking. Had to do TNS twice but I did it and hope that with the CEN it will be a one time deal.
    I am going to a review in Indy in Nov and hope to take the test soon after as I am getting older and forget things faster. If anyone has any test taking tips please feel free to share them with me.
    Thanks

    Stay on top of time management: Check the CEN guidelines for the number of exam questions and time allowed for the exam to determine the maximum time to allow yourself per question. Try hard to stick to that throughout the exam.

    I threw myself out there and took the CEN exam, failed by 3 points. Passing is 105, I got 102. I followed everything posted from page 1 of this forum and took my time with self assessment, reassessment, validating answers and still failed on my 3rd attempt. I don't know what to do from here.
