I just passed my CARN-AP exam and wanted to pass on some helpful info while it's still fresh. I was disappointed while studying by how few resources are out there to pass this test. I primarily used the ASAM Principles of Addiction Medicine book to study and found it very useful (though quite long and probably more in-depth than needed). Also found the webinars at https://pcssnow.org/education-training/sud-core-curriculum/ to be helpful. I bought the Scope and Standards of Addiction Nursing book, but didn't find it particularly helpful for the test. I did not buy the Core Curriculum of Addictions Nursing published by IntNSA based on the terrible reviews on Amazon, and I did fine without it.

OMG Finally someone shares their review books! I have been scouring the internet for review materials and what to study for this exam. Is it as hard or NCLEX or ANCC PMHRN certification? Thanks!
