I buckled down, kept studying and used the tips on this thread and I got a 83% on the last practice exam I took. I'm feeling more confident about the actual test on Thursday. Just wanted to update before the actual test.

Good luck, I'm taking mine the 30th. Let us know how it goes!

I passed the exam today, used the same study process and scored about the same. Glad it's over!

Ugh! I got a VM today from AMP telling me that the testing site in Portland is going to be closed next week for maintenance, sorry for the short notice, call us to reschedule, etc.

So no CCRN for me on the 10th after all! This is awful because there is no testing center where I live and I have to go out of town to take it and I really am limited on when I can leave town for a whole day (or two if I have to stay overnight)...I have until December 16th to reschedule. I was taking a leisurely trip to PDX next week, so thought I'd get my CCRN out of the way since I'm near a testing center. Blah!

On the positive side, I'll have more time to do practice questions! Can never do enough of those!

I've just started studying for the exam, and wonder if anyone has any insight into the NEW version out in January. I don't think I'll be ready before then, and wondered if there are any study guides that address the new breakdown of material, or if any are coming out soon. If not, I'll study the old material and take the test when I feel ready, but I'd feel pretty stupid if new editions that address the new test all come out on 1/15. Has anyone heard anything?
