Orthopaedic Nurses Certification Exam Secrets helped me to review the major concepts that were covered in the exam. It offered more than just a practice test--it was a real review! Even though I got most of the questions on the practice test correct the first time, I read the explanations as a review, anyways, because I found that the explanations were a good review, in and of themselves. The explanations were far more in-depth than many other practice tests that I have found, which I found incredibly helpful. I would definitely recommend getting this, as well as the flashcards that are meant to accompany the book.

Being a nurse means a lot of things, but exams are a big part of that. Nurses never stop learning so it is important to know how to study so they can keep all the information they need in their heads. Certification tests are especially important. The orthopedic nurses certification test was even more important to me. I wanted to do well and I needed to study in order to make that happen. When I found this study guide, I felt like I could make both happen. The study guide had all of the content in it that I needed to learn in order to do well on the test. Once I read through the guide, I realized once I learned the guide, I'd know enough to do very well on the test. It was a relief because I wouldn't have to go through old notes and learn things I didn't necessarily need. Since this guide was made to help those studying for this exact certification, I knew it was the right one for me. I hope that if I have to take any other big tests in the future, I can find study guides to help me that are even a percentage as good as this one. I know I'll face a lot of tests as a nurse and I hope there are other specialized study guides out there. This one sure saved me a lot of time and ensured that I would do well.
This is a good text only as a supplement to the NAON materials. This text has a 50 question sample exam which is nice but those questions were very easy compared to what actually showed up on the test. Also there are hundreds of typos which can actually matter when they mix hyper with hypo - which happens.
