NCC exam preparation

  1. Hi fellow nurses! Question to those who took NCC exam.
    Anyone tried this "Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse Exam Flashcard Study System"? Would you recommend if you did?
    How long did it take you to prepare for the exam? Should I buy a book or just borrow? New or used?
    Thanks! . Any input is greatly appretiated.

    a)it's totally up to you to buy a used book or new. I've had good luck buying on amazon as "used" books are usually listed as "bad or great" condition-just chose wisely.
    b) I haven't used the flashcards...but I did make my own.
    c) It took me two weeks of studying everyday for solid hours but I did not take a review class before taking the exam.
    d) good luck

    I studied here and there about 1-2 weeks prior. I used NICU Solutions, Inc's book and it was amazingly helpful.
