How to Pass Your ANCC Certification Exam, using our easy step-by-step ANCC Test study guides, without weeks and months of endless studying...

Dear Friend,

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, this past year, a young woman received the devastating news. She had just gotten back her result on the ANCC exam. It was not what she had hoped for. In fact, it was not even close to the expectations she had considering her past experience and educational background.

She had failed.

Then she remembered her friends and felt even worse. She did not look forward to having to tell them the embarrassing news, especially after she had boasted that it was no big deal. She had been procrastinating about taking the exam because she hated standardized tests, and this only confirmed her hatred.

"What will I do now?" she thought with dismay, slowly realizing the harsh reality of her predicament and its upsetting implications on her future.

How to Solve the Problem

Unfortunately, this hypothetical situation occurs all the time. Someone thought they were going to breeze through the examination, told all their friends, made plans for their future, and then got an embarrassing reality check from an ANCC exam.

ANCC certification exams are quite simply an objective assessment of a test taker's requisite foundation of knowledge and skills.

ANCC exam scores are used by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as a uniform standard of qualification. While it may not be fair, all of a person's plans for the future may be dependent upon needing a certain ANCC exam score.

That is the whole purpose of the Secrets of the ANCC Certification Exams study guides: to give test takers the keys to understand how to succeed on the ANCC exams.

  • Why answers that sound correct are often the very ones that are wrong and how to tell the difference between the right answer and the many clever-sounding traps set for you by the test writers.
  • Our benchmark method for deciding which of the answer choices you should pick.
  • What to do about the tough questions that you have no clue how to answer. Don't just give up, use the advice we offer to make sure you give yourself the best chance of getting the right answer.

I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!!"
