Hi-these are the two books that I used to study for the OCN (well the updated versions of them anyways) one is basically a textbook and the other is how just a book of questions in the same style as the OCN. It follows the format of the textbook.

Core Curriculum for Oncology Nursing-, 5e: 9781455776269: Medicine & Health Science Books @

Study Guide for the Core Curriculum for Oncology Nursing, 5e: 9781455754199: Medicine & Health Science Books @

I also used this book after I finished with the other study guides. It has 2 practice tests.

OCN Exam Practice Questions: OCN Practice Tests & Exam Review for the ONCC Oncology Certified Nurse Exam: 9781627338783: Medicine & Health Science Books @

What worked for me-read the textbook in full-and then do the questions, all of them, twice. It's all about the style they are written in...

good luck! Let us know how it goes!
