Mosby's Comprehensive Review for the Canadian RN Exam has a chapter on each category that is covered in the exam which explains the thinking, purpose, rationale and information behind each one, there are then a set of approx 30 practice question at the end of each chapter specifically on that subject (answers included).
At the end of the book is a set of really useful appendices covering the competencies, medical terminology, laboratory & diagnostic tests & values, mathematical formulas. Also the book has two practice exams and a short answer exam for you to do each having the answers supplied
The CD also goes through the competencies and has another two practice exams and a couple of short practice questions.
Well worth it if you did not do your nurse training in Canada.
I bought this book back in July and passed the CRNE first time round this past February. Delivery took only 3 days (it's usually fast, especially if you live in the city).
The contents are detailed and the practice questions after every chapter and the exams at the end are very helpful. I had some problems with typos and minor mistakes in a few practice questions. I mean, they're easy to catch if you're paying attention, but if you're not, they could mess you up (writing down that a certain condition causes alkalosis when it's actually acidosis? Come on.) Don't even bother with the appendix section with the lab values and just use the values they taught you in school. There must be something wrong with formatting, because the values don't line up properly with what they're supposed to be. I mean, in what universe is BUN level 44~144micromol/L?
Naturally, I contacted the editor of the book to see if there were any corrections available. She said she wasn't aware of any mistakes in the book and would I forward her things that I found so that she could run them by her editing team? O_o Right. I'm supposed to take time out of studying to do your job.
Overall, this is a nice study guide to use to prepare for the CRNE.
I'd hoped to see a CD in the box (as had been indicated online), but there was none! So I guess we shall resort to the book app.
