So I've been studying for the CEN exam and I must say...I truly hate being a "student" all again LOL.

I've been studying since January and I took BCEN's practice exam and scored an 81% (120 out of 150).

How accurate is this exam? It seems somewhat doable and I fear I might go into the exam with an inflated "chance" of passing.

I have been using Sheehy's manual of Emergency Care and CEN Exam Secrets by Mometrix. I've also been using CEN Pocketprep app.

I didn’t take the BCEN exam. I used the purple CEN prep book through ENA and Sheehy’s Emergency Manual. However, the most helpful to me was through the online CEN modules through ENA.

I'm also planning to take CEN exam soon. Have been using Sheehy's too. Have you ever heard Solheim's? They have Webinar class coming soon, wondering should I join.

I have. But his review courses are no where near me.

I ended up purchasing ENA's review book that has 7 practice exams and 2 online exams that I will be completing.

I honestly don't know how else to study. I took 1 of the 7 exams and scored a 73.3% *it is a little more harder than BCEN's online exam LOL"
