Main description:

The best review available for the Critical Care Nursing Certification Exam!

Critical Care Nursing Certification: Preparation, Review, and Practice Exams, Seventh Edition is a comprehensive, single-source review that covers everything you need to know to excel on the examination administered by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN). Unlike dull, dry outline style reviews, this score-boosting resource is presented in short, interesting, easy-to-read chapters that are similar what you would hear at a well-planned lecture. Following the CCRN blueprint, coverage of each subject is weighted to reflect its level of importance on the actual exam. Ten practice exams (mostly centered around body systems) help you identify your weak areas and sharpen your test-taking skills.

Excel on the exam with:

* Valuable test-taking tips to help you perform your best on the exam
* Ten subject-specific practice exams with detailed answer explanations and rationales
* Handy "Editor's Note" feature that explains changes to the exam, highlights what is important, and alerts you to the number of questions you should expect on a given topic
* Expert, well-written coverage of every important topic you will see on the exam
