I better bring some glucose with me In any event, I thought I'd register for a 2-day review class not too far from where I live since I haven't taken any education days yet. It's just harder for me to do self-study these days. Just don't have the time. I called ANCC and alerted them that I'd be ready (I hope) to take the exam in Oct. It'll be computerized...the first one to be offered (no more pen and paper). Thanks again!sorry it took so long to answer. I have been on vacation. I earned 16 contact hours from the CD so I assume that the average time is 16 hours. I was able to convince admin to pay for it since it was half the price of attending the seminar out of town. I drove 3 hrs to Dallas to take the test, had a hypoglycemic episode, had to be rescued by others and leave the room till I felt better, and I still managed to pass. So it can be done!
I hope you enjoyed your vacation.

- 1Jan 5, '09 by CjHMSNThe test results reflect three levels of scoring, high, medium and low. I scored high in leadership, nursing education and facilitator/change agent but scored low in research and principles of practice. I did not take a prep course but highly recommend it.
- 0Jan 6, '09 by lcprncQuote from CjHMSNExcellent! Congratulations! I also don;t have the time to study. I do have small green book (Can't even remember the name of the book or author) that someone gave me. I only flipped through it so far. It has summary, sort of like outline of the exam content. Thank you. I'll let you know how I do.The test results reflect three levels of scoring, high, medium and low.

How did you do with time? How many questions were asked and how long did it take you?
