I'm currently studying for the CNL exam, and I could really use some advice.

I graduated from my CNL program 4 years ago, so I'm a little rusty. I know I should have taken it sooner, however there were circumstances that happened that I needed to attend to (death in the immediate family, moving, taking care of my family). In fact, this would be my 3rd time taking it.

I can't remember how I studied the first time I took it back in 2017. When I took the test in 2019, I prepped by studying the CNL Secrets yellow book, and I didn't have time to finish reading the book, and didn't do a lot of practice questions.

I'm studying from Springer's CNL Certification Review book (purple). I read all the chapters, and did hundreds of their practice questions online, and scored 75% on average. But when I attempted to do AACN's assessment test, I got a low score, in the 60% range!

Now I feel like I'm at a loss. The more practice questions I do (from my other CNL books), the more I come across concepts that I haven't reviewed on. I wonder if I'll ever be ready for this test. I feel like giving up because I don't feel like I'm going anywhere.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks in advance!
