Did you use the mosby text or the lippicott one ..
Mosby's Canadian Comprehensive Review of Nursing. Second Edition + CD + Guide to Short Answer Questions on the CRNE
Mosby's Prep Guide for the Canadian RN Exam (2007)
Lippincott's CRNE Prep Guide (2009)
The Canadian Registered Nurse Exam Prep Guide 4th Edition + CD
These are the material I used in preparing for the CRNE. Guys this was my second attempt and I wanted to pass really badly because you know this exam means your future in nursing, so I used every resource available. It is a lot but think of the satisfaction and gratification this will bring when it's all over. That being said, I am not encouraging anyone to go and buy all these books if you cannot for any reason. This is just what I did and it worked for me.
Best of luck!
p.s. try to incorporate an activity you enjoy doing within your schedule and while studying. For the last 10 weeks prior to the exam I would go out for a run (45 minutes) in the morning and it really helped release a lot of the tension, especially because I invested long hours studying. So please, treat yourself, go to the movies once a week, go for a coffee with a friend, etc., that will help ease your mind and stay more focused on the positives. Finally, I did NOT touch a book or any of my notes the day before the exam. I remember going to the movies the night before and just relaxed. Plan your study schedule well and you will succeed.
