I am in the OCN review online review class that ends on November 15th, and taking the exam a week later, so I'm just about right where you are. I have the Core Curriculum and it's SO difficult to read and stay focused - the outline format is
. Also have the Core Curriculum Study Guide with all the questions and I have to agree that doing the questions with the rationals is probably the best way to go, at least for me. When I took NCLEX 2 years ago, doing questions helped me tremendously.
I found another book on amazon
that is all question and answer. It also has a website that you register with using the access code in the book, and it is all question and answer with rational. Now that's my kind thing - computer. Here's the link for it:
It was published in April 2011 and is "supposed" to be more up to date on the exam than the ONS books which were published in like 2005.
If anyone has any other ideas on how to study for this exam, or any clue's about what to focus on for the exam, please let us know if you can. Someone recently told me that they talk alot about cancer meds, both oral and IV. I wonder if this exam is like NCLEX where everyone gets different questions, or does everyone get the same questions and the same number of questions....
