I just took (and passed!) the adult AANP computer based cert. exam...I used this study guide exclusively to study from and it proved to be an excellent source of test questions very similar in style and content to that of the actual cert. exam. I recommend it highly!

A must have! May 31 2005
By A. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this review book to be extremely helpful. I have never written a review before and said that if I passed the ANCC Adult NP certification I would write one. I had previously bought a review book (the John Hopkins review) and was not impressed. I bought this second one after reading the reviews here. This book was short, precise, up to date, and thorough. The questions in the review book that I was unsure of I looked up in text books and sure enough I got questions on my real test about those topics. I also thought the ethical legal section was very helpful because I was unsure of what to study from my text books. In short would highly recommend!

Good adjunt to classroom text April 9 2005
By L. Butcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book on the recommendations of the previous reviews and was happy with the style and format of the text. I too passed the AANP certification for ANP exam with the help of this book. While similar to the AANP exam, this actually has information that is more up to date with current treatments than the actual exam. While there are really no good books to study from, I think it is an excellent adjunt to the classroom texts and helps get you into the testing frame of mind especially for the computer exam. The only thing I wished it could do is to section off into the different body systems with a graph or score so that you can look back and see where your strengths & weakness are so that you don't waste time with areas where you don't need as much review.

Mediocre, but still helpful Oct. 14 2005
By ARA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is pretty much ONLY practice questions, with rationales. So far I've primarily used the accompanying CD, and I have several issues with their questions. The authors claim their question database is 1,000+, however, I've only taken two practice tests and already have had way too many repeat questions which threw off my second score. I have noticed SEVERAL editing mistakes, some of which did change the meaning of the sentence, making part of their rationale inaccurate. A few of the correct answers did not match the rationale, making you wonder which way they intended the meaning to be (so then of course you look it up to double check). One example of this is the "correct" answer was "annual pneumococcal and influenza immunizations" but the rationale states that pneumococcal vaccines are NOT given annually (which is true). Sure, that's not too big of a mistake, but it's terribly annoying and decreases your faith in the author's ability to be preparing you for such an important exam. There were several other answers that I'm really not sure were the best answer or even completely correct. This book probably is still helpful, at least for getting used to answering the question and the testing style. Overall, the information most likely is helpful as well, but it also seems limited-many topics were repeated too often, whereas other topics seem to be left out completely. I'm not sure I should even give it 3 stars. . .we'll see after I take the test.

Very Useful July 31 2006
By srntyblue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased several review books (about 6) to help me study for the AANP Adult Nurse practitoner exam that I took and passsed in June 2006. Needless to say, I probably bought too many review books but I thought I could use all the extra help since it was almost 4 years since I gradauted from the adult NP program and decided to take the exam. This book was my 2nd favorite book to use, especially the review questions in the CD the book came with. The questions were similiar in format as the AANP exam. My only caution is that some of the answers in CD practice exam did not correspond with the explanation answer. I would highly recommend Fitzgerald's review CD/manual and her review book, Nurse Practitioner Certification Examination and Practice Preparation as the best review source. Fitzgerald would get 5 stars.
