    I used the ahrens review book X2 (certification and recertification) and the official website review questions. Ahrens is fairly good and comprehensive, although hopefully they updated it. I noticed on the last pccn exam, there were a few questions on newer cardiac meds which were not covered in the edition I used.

    Thanks for the info i will look jnto that today. I just didnt want to buy a few books that were not that helpful. Seems to be many out there right now and trying to find accurate info on how well they work is trying unless i get it from nurses who actually took the exam.

    Ahrens and Ed4Nurses.com did it for me. GREAT resources. When I took it about 45% was cardiac, and 3 of my questions were the same. Know what changes in what ECG leads suggest what area of infarct (there's a chart for it online). For example: Changes in leads II, III, and aVF are typically signs of... Inferior MI. Get those two resources, study and I bet you'll do fine
