Although this book covers much more than what you need to know for the NAB exam, it is a good read and very worth purchasing for test preparation purposes and for your professional library. It definitely helped me pass the exam the first time around.

This book, along with the study book and its substantial number of test questions, helped me pass my NHA exam on the first try. It may seem a little "pricey", but I'd price compared the resources I used, and was able to find the best price on the most current edition here on Amazon.

This was the book recommended by NC BENHA to purchase along with the NAB Study Guide. This helped me understand the depth and breadth of knowledge and material needed to get my NHA license. I passed the exams without a problem.

This book is well done. It works in concert with the test book by the same author. I felt prepared for the national nursing home licensure testing after completing it.

Very hard to read picking through all the parentheses. It looks like he gathered everybody else's work for his book and didn't write much of his own. Financial section was good but Townsend does a better job on the other topics.

I used this book as well as the companion review guide to study for my NHA exam. This is the only material I used other than reading the state operations manual sections that were referenced in the book (those sections are long but necessary reading). It covered the topics necessary to pass the exam and while I spent a great deal of time studying and learning the material presented I passed the exam with a very high score. I was nervous prior to the exam for not purchasing other materials from which to study but it really was not necessary.

It's like every other text book. There is good information in it, but mostly overwritten with a lot of look at me, filler. The book could be 300 pages.. I would recommend the Kindle, as you can locate key areas fast! I also rented the paper textbook, but after my class really started, I couldn't keep up with the assignments looking though a bunch of pages. After the first chapter, I didn't use the paper one anymore.
