    Yes, that' enough time if you take their ANCC review class...it helps you focus on what to study for the test. It is also helps if you're a recent graduate.

    If you study diligently, yes that's enough time. If you don't take a review class get some NCLEX review books.

    Thank you so much laRN1
    actually i am not taking any review class nor i am a recent graduate. These are the reasons making me more nervous about the exam, and seeking help.
    If you have any idea, it's so welcome.

    Thank you!!

    Do you know anyone who has taken a review class? Maybe they can lend you the review book. I think studying NCLEX stuff may be too much. This is test is by no means NCLEX. It's easier than you think. Borrow the med surg certification book from the library. Do you know anyone who has recently taken the test? All I remember from the test I took last summer was a lot of diabetes questions, lots of psych and how would you prioritize questions.

    I took the exam last summer and didn't study one iota. I didn't think it was that hard, and I've only been a nurse for a few years. You will do fine. Good luck!

I started reading book the Springhouse review for medical-surgical nursing certification. It is helping me alot. I would be very thankful if i get any info about question practice book.

    any info is heartily welcome!

    Is the ANCC review course online by any chance? There is one my facility offers and it's paid for. However, it's a weekday that I work and I can never go.
