Editorial Reviews

Michelle Stofflet
This comprehensive and detailed study manual is geared to the critical care nurse preparing for the Critical Care Certification Examination for Registered Nurses (CCRN). The testing section at the end of each chapter is unique due to the variety of exercises it offers, such as crossword puzzles, fill-in charts, and practice multiple choice questions. The purpose is to offer a complete, focused review intended for registered nurses planning to take the AACN Certification Exam for Certified Critical Care Practice. The book has thoroughly met the author's objectives. This book is clearly designed for registered nurses who have practiced or are currently practicing within a critical care environment, as it should be. However, the author does not state basic qualifications nurses should possess before studying for this exam. This may be helpful to ensure the consumer has a general understanding of the material presented. The author of this book appears to be a credible authority. This study guide offers a variety of features. The illustrations are thorough yet simplistic, although use of different colors might better enhance detailed diagrams. The table of contents could be much more detailed due to the fact that each section, especially CV, is a book in and of itself. The tables are somewhat of a strain to read due to their small font and lack of titles in large, bold font. The index and references are well organized and very helpful. Finally, the lesson sections are unique in that they are the most interactive teaching exercises this reviewer has encountered in a self-learning manual. This book is a complete and thorough tool for the critical care nurse preparing to take the CCRNexamination. The information is solid and current; however, the layout of several sections is somewhat overwhelming due to outline material, table material, and diagrams appearing on the same page. These particular pages are not user inviting. It becomes difficult to know where to direct attention. Overall, this study guide appears to provide more than enough information to independently aid the critical care nurse preparing to take the CCRN examination.
