This book is a must-have resource for all students preparing for the FNP or Adult-Gero exams. The new edition incorporates current clinical evidence and practice guidelines into a resource that NP graduates have been using to successfully prepare for the AANP and ANCC exams for years. The book provides more than 1,200 multiple-choice, competency-based questions to test students' knowledge and, importantly, their ability to apply that knowledge in clinical situations. In addition to the questions, the 3rd edition provides three practice exams for family NP certification prep and three practice exams for adult-gerontology certification prep. The question selection and development for all books in APEA's Certification Practice Questions series reflect the content categories of the AANP and ANCC adult-gerontology and family nurse practitioner exams: health promotion; disease prevention; diagnosis and management of acute and chronic illnesses across the life span; the research process; and professional issues. To effectively use the book, APEA recommends studying individual subject areas using course materials or reference books such as APEA's Clinical Guidelines in Primary Care and then answering the questions that correlate with that subject. For example, review material on hematology and then turn to the collection of questions about hematology in Certification Practice Questions. These are clearly identified in the table of contents. After sufficient reading and review in all areas, it is appropriate to take one of the practice exams included in the book.
