    What book do you recommend to review prior to a SEC assessment? Thanks

    I don't think there's one special book to use for SEC review... because SEC is individualized to the person being assessed. The information covered by the assessment will depend on the areas the candidate is weak in. So what are your knowledge deficits? Use a book that covers those.

    I have an ongoing assessment in CARNA and will be flying in Canada this september just in case they require me to take SEC, however my problem is I can't visualize what SEC would really be like. I hope I could prepare myself prior to the assessment.

    I have read your posts regarding SEC assessment, really helpful!
    I am still confused about the clinical as well as tripple jump. Also, about the critical thinking scenarios- are
    they really difficult or somewhat easy. If you can remember some the overall questions in your exam, please
    let me know. I will highly appreciate your concern.

    I am from France, applying for registration in BC, and the CRNBC asked me to do a SEC in General nursing (medicine+surgery) which I am doing next week...
    I received a self assessment form to complete, am a bit confused about it, could anyone help me with it? do I have to provide examples of my experience (I'm afraid I'm going to repeat myself in each question...) could anyone tell me what they put on the form??

    hi! thanks to everyone who's been sharing their experiences in SEC. i'll be taking it too this september (all 4 areas)... i had been adviced by the others who are preparing for the exam to read mosby's or lippincott's comprehensive review to acquaint myself in the canadian setting...
    i'd like to ask if you know how to answer the self assessment form. i've read that they want evidences. does it mean that i need to tell them how i do things in the hospital? do i have to add my rationale for doing such actions?
    hope you guys can help me... thanks a lot!
