    I'd like to be your study buddy, but I'm 4,000 miles away
    I'm also interested in a recommendation for a good study text. Did you sit in on the webinar about certification?

    I recently got certified!

    I bought the book "Core Curriculum for Specializing in Intellectual and Developmental Disability" by Wendy Nehring. It's really great for studying. I don't know what all I am allowed to say, but if I did it all over again, I would focus a lot more on specific cause and effect type of things... like if a person has Y syndrome and takes X med, what labs should you watch? Not sure if that makes sense... Another thing that was really helpful (but I can't find them now that the DDNA website has changed) were the powerpoints from past conferences.
