    I took the AANP this week and passed! But, I will tell you, it was very difficult. I took the Fitzgerald review course and had her CD's, had Amelies CDs and Amelies 4000 study questions book. The test was all over the place, as I anticipated. I am a FNP, so one would expect the full life span on the exam. However, there were questions about subject matter that I had never even heard of. At first I wondered if they loaded the correct test. Probably the first 6 or 7 questions I did not readily know the answer and had to reason my way through, and that's pretty much how it was for most of the test. I was very surprised that I passed. I fully expected to fail because I just couldn't click through and pick correct answers immediately. I just graduated August 2012, and one person in my class did fail the AANP. I personally know 3 people now that have failed it. Only one of my classmates elected to take the ANCC, and he passed it. Good Luck! I am just thankful mine is over!

    Just re-work your study plan and you should be fine. We are adults and maybe you couldn't fully prepare in time. It's not about how you fall, it's about how you get up! Peace!
