I disagree with studying content primarily. I did like a fiend and I must say it was a huge waist of time.

Review the basic material yes but the test I felt had more to do with your reaction to a hypothetical situation. The information in the question and alot of the answers was "grey" very vague.

Strategy is what you absolutely need to study, always think safety but dont over react thats were the education comes into play.

Trust your instincts if you second guess your toast.

I had 2/3 multiple response questions and the answers were mixed one intervention, one pt. education, one clarify ect.

My strategy read the question read the answers one at a time and say absolutely true or dont pick it. ( or vice verse if the questions is asking for whats wrong).

I did....

Saunders with the CD Rom almost 1/2 of the 5,000 questions

Exam cram questions and review about 1,700 questions

And the Kaplan book 200 question

Kaplan was all strategy and helped the most I felt.

One more piece of advice alot of the multiple response I picked only 1 answer or all of them, if you have a problem with doing you can potentially run into trouble.

And be prepared to see alot of meds you have never heard of, again in my opinion what a said above is true IF YOU READ THE ANSWER (S) AND CANT SAY 100% TRUE DONT PICK IT!

and the pass rate statistics for us educated 1st time test takers is 84.9%

repeat test takers 36.16%

I passed 1st time 85? 2/3 multiple response.

Good luck

What books do you currently have on hand? If you have Saunders for example, I suggest you take the pre diagnostic test (CD that came with Saunders book). Based on the results, this will generate your own personalized handy dandy study plan. This would be a great starting point.
