Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marilyn Rantz, PhD, RN, FAAN (University of Missouri-Columbia)
Description: This book is 119 pages of questions organized in major categories that are designed to help people preparing for the National Association of Boards of Examiners of Long Term Care Administrators (NAB) Licensing Exam. There is an answer key and a suggested reading list for users.
Purpose: The purpose is to help people prepare for the NAB exam by reviewing questions that are similar to the questions that are likely to be asked on the national examination. There is no content explaining the material. Readers are referred to suggested readings of texts about long term care administration, national safety, and other federal codes, as well as legal and accounting principles. The author's primary objective to help people prepare for the exam is met.
Audience: This book is likely to be helpful for those who need practice with multiple choice examinations. For those who need more information, other texts will be needed. The audience is very specific — those preparing to take the NAB exam. The author has written books about long term care administration and has educational credentials to support his expertise to write such a text.
Features: The content is multiple choice questions the author explains are formatted to cover content that will appear on the NAB exam. The author points out that the chances of a specific question in the book appearing on the exam is unlikely. He advises readers to understand the content so they can answer questions on the exam well. Content areas seem well covered. Clustering the content is helpful for the reader to diagnose problem areas needing further review. Some more specific guidance for resources foe further review would be helpful. The list of Suggested Readings is a short list of books on the general topics of long term care administration, regulation, and legal issues. A more detailed approach to helping users with resources would probably enhance the usefulness of this guide.
Assessment: This book is probably useful for people preparing for the NAB exam. This will be especially true for those who find preparing for multiple choice test-taking by using similar exam questions helpful.
