    I have them both, as well. Prefer M&G, as it's more in-depth. Loaned someone my Core Curriculum so they could study for RNC, but they never returned it and I can't remember who it was loaned to. Speaking of studying for RNC...I think having both books is beneficial, as you can use the outline format of Core Curriculum to find subjects, and M&G for in-depth info on the subject.

    If you're going for AACN certification, I think the core curriculum would be helpful. You can do the NCC cert w/M&G, imo.
