Editorial Reviews

4 Stars! from Doody

Lengthy answers at the end of each section provide rationales for both correct and incorrect answers to each of the 2,450 multiple-choice sample test questions. Winland-Brown and Dunphy (College of Nursing, Florida Atlantic U.) introduce the review units with a discussion of test-taking skills and strategies and how to development a study plan. The disk allows users to specify the number of questions that will be randomly selected for each practice test. Two additional practice tests are included at the end of the book. Annotation c.

Reviewer: Phyllis J. Mason, MSN (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This nurse practitioner certification review book contains current and relevant viewpoints and practice guidelines. The reader is given strategies for answering multiple choice questions. Answers to the questions are provided at the end of each chapter with the rationale. With this format, the reader is able to evaluate their test-taking skills and mastery of concepts in each section.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the authors, is to provide a large number of sample test questions with rationales as well as reinforcement in test taking skills using new standards and guidelines. The authors believe answering numerous sample test questions is the best way prepare for taking a multiple-choice exam such as the certification examination. These are worthy objectives. The large number of questions, the rationale for the answers, and the ability to rate yourself is very helpful. The book meets the authors' objectives.
Audience: Written for adult and family nurse practitioner students, the book can be used by nurse practitioners to refresh practice guidelines. The book is appropriate for both groups. The authors and contributors are credible authorities.
Features: The book contains strategies for test taking and allows readers to take sample tests and score themselves to evaluate their knowledge. The sample questions prepare readers for the type of questions they will encounter on the certification examination. The book covers all systems and persons from the child to the adult. It addresses health promotion as well as health prevention. The "how well you did" section at the end of each chapter directs the reader's study plan which can save valuable time.
Assessment: I like this review book because of the number of questions and their similarity to the certification exam questions. The rationale for the answers at the end of the chapter contributes further to readers' knowledge. The guidelines and practices are up-to-date with current references. Because the art and science of nursing changes rapidly, the authors are justified in updating the book.
