I created this thread to have an inclusive up to date CEN review thread for people planning to take the CEN in the next year. I have been in the ER for almost a year and I think that is enough time to start studying. I got some resources from my educator at work.

So far, the materials I have are the CEN review manual from the ENA which is basically practice tests and some stuff from Jeff Solheim's review which appears to be content in notes form. I also have a book called the Quick Reference to Critical Care which I have been using since I was a pretty new nurse. It has a lot of great information. I have also downloaded the most recent test blueprint.

Which materials did you use/are you using to study from? How important do you think it is to have the latest edition of study materials?

Thanks in advance!

Also, there was a fellow around here who had some free videos on YouTube. I forgot his name, and haven't really seen him around for a while. Anyone remember him?

A general question for those who have taken the CEN: how in depth do you have to study the material?

I'm currently studying. I already paid for my exam so I'm within my 90-day window, but I have to test by sometime in January. I did it to force myself to study!

I took Jeff Solheim's CEN review course and have his notes which I am using as my primary source. I'm also doing some review through CE Direct which is free through my work. For practice questions, I am using the CEN Review Manual that also has two online practice exams that I got from ENA.

Good luck! And let me know how your exam goes. I might ask you questions on here...
