    Hi, thank you for your reply. I did buy the book. I am confused if I have to go through all the detail from that Medical surgical certification book. Also, did u practice extra question? If yes, can u please tell me which one?

    thank you!!

    I used that book and believe it or not I pulled out my old NCLEX study book and reanswered questions from that. That was all I did. Being that I work in oncology I reread sections on systems I do not necessarily have extensive knowledge or experience with. The test itself wasn't nearly as bad as I had anticipated. It was 175 questions asked very straight forward.

    I felt it helped me because i definitely did not think the certification test was nearly as hard as the NCLEX questions
