Our Study Guide for the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test Is Unlike Any Other

If you'd like to get the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test is "good enough," and to beat the test taking game so you can become a Certified Medical-Surgical Nurse, then this might be the most important message you read this year.

Our comprehensive study guide for the Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Exam is written by our Medical-Surgical Nurse Test experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the Med-Surg Exam. Our original research into the Medical-Surgical Nurse Exam and Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (CMSRN) Examination, offered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test.

Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:

The Three Reasons To Believe What We Say

The First Reason:

Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict- we demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.

The Second Reason:

Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution- if test takers were not doing well on the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.

We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.

We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.

The Third Reason:

We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test.

A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test- you have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.

One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test.

Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.

You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. --Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the Medical-Surgical Nurse Test...

  • Our "benchmark" method for deciding which of the answer choices you should pick

  • How to use our brainstorming method to get "inside the question" and reveal the hard-to-find clues and some of the subtle things you didn't realize you knew
  • Do you know what a "hedge phrase" is? Learn why looking for the key "weasel words" in the question can help identify the correct answer
  • Why "new information" in the answer choices almost always means that the answer choice is wrong- and the way to avoid this trick planted by the clever test writers
  • Learn to avoid this time-draining mistake on the test - why the technical terms you don't know can be a major stumbling block and waste precious time, and the way that you can work around them
  • The secret to using the contextual clues in the questions and the answer choices to make important distinctions between the right and the wrong answer choices
  • The two situations where you should NOT check your answers thoroughly
  • How to avoid careless mistakes by using the quick "double check" system. It will more than pay for itself relative to the time it will take you
  • Test writers will often quote directly from the question in an answer- learn whether this is something you should trust or avoid
  • Why "extreme statements" in the answer choices are dead giveaways for wrong answers- find out how to detect the subtle differences between reasonable answers and the answers that are almost always wrong
  • Learn how to group your answer choices into "families" that often narrows down the pool of correct answers- this is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right

Now, you're probably wondering how and why we can do all the things we claim.

Let us explain.

Before we go any further, let us clarify what Medical-Surgical Nurse Exam Secrets is not. It is not a stale rehash of all of the things you have already learned in the past.

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I got a 99% on my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.

My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.

I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! 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!! Brian

I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you! Zac L.

You get at least 10 times your money's worth! --When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.

This definitely helped me pass the med-surg exam. It's a quick paced reference guide, so I didn't have to do all the research myself. I also studied a med-surg A&P book to help me remember concepts/specifics I learned back in college. Good luck guys!!

This book really helped me focus on what areas to study for the med-surg certification exam. I had previously been studying from another program that was overwhelming with so much information that wasn't even on the exam. This study guide was on the money with topics covered on the exam and guess what.....I passed!!!

Many of the nursing books, especially medical surgical books, are overwhelming with its content. This book seems to be different. It is composed of the nursing process. Nursing process is a systematic method of providing nursing care. Its components are assessment and nursing diagnosis, planning and outcome identification, implementation and evaluation, which are all here in this book. Usually, in medical surgical book of nursing, nursing process is just at the end part of each body system.

In this book, nursing process is thoroughly explained. The diseases are broken down in each body system in accordance to the nursing process. The importance of medical surgical nursing is not just about knowing our body system and its diseases or disorders but to know how to apply the knowledge, so that you are able to give exceptional care to your patients. This book helps you being good not only in medical surgical nursing but also when caring for your patients. Because of its assessment, which is really detailed, is the reason you will be guided accordingly to the right nursing diagnosis. You should take towards the right planning, implementation, and evaluation. The most important component in nursing process is assessment. If your assessment is wrong, everything will be wrong and you won't get a good outcome in your evaluation, because in the first place that is not the problem of your patient.

Taking the medical surgical nursing is the application of what you will learn from this book. This book is incomparable because it already relates and applies the knowledge about medical surgical nursing to an individual. It seems to help you more on situational questions that are usually the questions in medical surgical nursing exam as well as the other nursing exams. It is complete enough by having its tips, tricks and test strategies. Aside from that, it also has secrets to ace the test and it's up to you to find out.

This was the worst review book for Medical Surgical Nurse Exam, the study guide had no relevant information about examination. The writers of this review guide should read the CMSRN Exam Blueprint instead of penning down wrong information and selling the products to Medical Surgical nurses who are preparing to their certification exam. Thank God that I passed the CMSRN exam on the first attempt by studying Medical-Surgical Nursing Review Questions by Dottie Roberts.

I purchased the Med Surg Nursing Exam study guide. I find the amount of information to review overwhelming so this study guide has assisted me in focusing on the imperative information AND how to take a test. This study guide is VERY helpful in that it not only shares the correct answer but the rationale which could be helpful in answering other questions. Also, I appreciate the affordable price.

I got this book so that I could have it to study before my test. I really like it and I think that it is helping me a lot! There are a lot of different tips that can help you be successful on your test, but I wouldn't exactly call them 'secrets'. All in all, this book is helping me tremendously with my prep for my test. Definitely recommend!
