    There are 2 different med surg exams. I took the one offered by the ANCC. I bought a med surg study guide off Amazon that was helpful. My test was very heavy on knowing the disease processes, especially cardiac and respiratory.
    And I would not say that it wasn't hard, but there were many questions that you would only be able to answer if you spent time at bedside and no book could prepare you for. I guess that's why they required 2 years experience to qualify.

    I took the med/surg test by AMSN. I wouldn't say it was easy. In fact there was stuff on there that I didn't know even after 20 some years of med/surg nursing. However, having experience was helpful. That's where I pulled the vast majority of my information from.
