    I wouldn't go too in depth reading the book. I'd suggest skimming the chapters and hitting the main points. If the book is yours to keep, use a highlighter to highlight the major points. Anything you don't understand, go in and read up a little more on it.

    The Trauma Nursing Process is probably the main thing you'll need to focus on. The class should cover most of the material you'll need to be successful in taking both the written and practical portions of the test.

    It's kinda like ACLS. You've done that, right?

    I've taken TNCC twice, and like the above suggestion, memorize the trauma process, your assessment, and the interventions associated with each step (i.e. for airway you are looking for blood, secretions and if present you suction. If they are an unconscious patient you insert an OPA). Apart from the trauma process there is no way to memorize the whole text chapters in that short of time. Read through each chapter once. Pick out important things like the burn fluid resuscitation formula, Cardiac tamponade triad, cushings triad, etc.
