AREP  has many good materials as well as credit hours.  I also go the book set from ANNA, helped a lot!  Good luck

I'm currently studying for CDN exam (scheduled to take the test within the next month). I'll let you know...

As far as guides, I'm using Mometrix, Core Curriculum, and Youtube. I also bought ExamEdge (EE). Although I think any study guide will help you increase your chances to passing the exam, I find a lot of EE's questions absurd, rationale to the answers are very weak, they repeat a lot of questions from one exam to another (I bought 10 packs, 100 questions/pack).

My nurses said the same exact thing. But they say that test is hard and leave you feeling like you're as dumb as a box of rocks! They both passed 1st time and each has 20+ years experience apiece. Even though I'm management,  I'm considering taking it, in case I choose to go back to the floor

Have they taken it recently?

I've been is dialysis nursing for less than 20 but long enough (14 years) that I should know more than I should. But I don't. Just reading through Core Curriculum and other dialysis/renal study materials make me feel inadequate and unprepared. At least techs are nationally mandated to take certification but not RNs. *I believe VA dialysis techs are not mandated. I could be wrong.
