    I just ordered two books and plan to take my CCRN in the early Spring. I ordered Critical Care Made Incredibly Easy (Critical Care Nursing Made Incredibly Easy! (Incredibly Easy! Series(R)): 978149636937: Medicine & Health Science Books @ Amazon.com) and Barron's CCRN Exam (Barron's CCRN Exam: 97814384587: Medicine & Health Science Books @ Amazon.com). I have heard good things about Pass CCRN as well (Pass CCRN!: 97832377262: Medicine & Health Science Books @ Amazon.com).

    AACN's Core Curriculum for whichever of the three CCRN exams you plan to take is the gold standard. After all, it's their exam.

    I took a CCRN Review Class (my hospital paid for it) that was taught by Cammy (Mary Ann House-Fancher). She has practice questions that I used to study after taking the class along with the other nurses that took the course with me. We would quiz each other when we had a moment with the practice questions. The class was excellent. She as a CCRN Exam Review page on FB.

    I highly recommend a combo of Laura Gasparis CCRN prep DVD and PASS CCRN's online question bank. I used these two resources and passed on my first try.
