mmk130, I am sorry about your devastating news. I took the live review of FHEA and APEA. Although I spent a lot of excess money on an extra review, hotel, travel, ect... I think it was worth it. I reviewed Leik textbook as well, but did not find it as helpful as what I expected. From my understanding, the AANP exams are geared towards clinical experience, ANCC is geared towards theory, analysis, and patient management. I think both live reviews were helpful. Both my wife and I went to the reviews, tested within 1 month and passed thru ANCC.
Remember to also take time for yourself. One can get caught up in studying, prep exams, charts, books, ext. However remember one simple concept... "Study... And test" no more, no less. Prepare yourself as best you can and leave the rest in Gods hands. This is difficult to understand, but try keep emotion out of the test. You have been thru school, numerous test and journals. Try a live review and that may help focus your study. Remember to study the concepts that you understand the LEAST! It is easy to study a subject you know the best and able to answer all the questions correct.
Relax... Study... Test
Good luck, hope this helps, keep me posted please.
