    I can certainly attest to APEA question bank online because the tutor mode allows you to solidify your studying by showing you the rationale right then and there. And you can also study the areas that you are weak in. You don't get that from the audio CDs or the review books. And besides, the online review is good practice for the real exam.

    I took the ANCC exam on the 16th of January and passed the first time, its not too bad. I went to a Barkley review and felt very prepared for the exam after following all his tips.

    Any suggestions on how to study for the health care delivery, therapeutic comm and research questions. I took the acute care ancc exam and scored low in these areas. I took the Barkely review as well.

    Usually a book on NP roles, also Buppert RN JD, has a website that has a lot of info on it, google the different research designs...therapeutic communication is covered usually in the context regarding interview styles...i.e. open ended questions, also Barkley has a CD that does cover legal, ethics, etc. Like I said Buppert will cover that and Bates will help in framing your interview questions...remember your cultural sensitivity stuff as well.

    I passed the ANCC today! FNP-BC!!


    I took the AANP a little less than 1 month back and I was unsuccessful- I had severe test anxiety. Today I took a beta blocker and I relaxed! And I had a better outcome. I am super excited!!

    I think this one was a little harder because of the non clinical questions! I had made me mind up prior to this that I would retake the the AANP just to prove to self that I could pass. But in all honesty- I do not know that my test anxiety could handle it!

    I took the ANCC and passed 1st time in Dec 2012...found the test to be all over the place...but with prayer and study guides I was able to do it... always wondered about ANCP...but I didn't think clinical skills was strong enough...good luck to you...now on to conquer my job search here in MI for FNP
