Hi- see this thread for resources posted already

I took it only 11 months out of school. I didn't think it was very hard? I did get one of the BCEN or whatever it's called? Books, and a few others at Borders Books. I went over them a couple hours a week for two months prior to taking it. They cover more non nursing stuff, like organo phosphate poisoning and anti dotes, and what type of x-ray to order for an inter trochantic fx, etc etc. It was ok? Mine expires (even though not in the ER anymore) in 5/2006. I think I will re-take it, just in case I head in another direction. I have been in PACU for two years now, after 7 years in ER. I have been tossing the idea around of going back to school though.
Good luck on the test!
