Unlike most CNA Study Guides, this Official CNA Study Guide boasts the most information, practice tests and more, for the lowest price on the market. How The CNA Study Guide Can Help You Getting a CNA certification can be a difficult process. First, you need to pass your written exam, and then you need to get through the practical portion as well. Although your certification course should help to give you the CNA building blocks, you'll still need something to help put it all together. This is where the Official CNA Study Guide can help! Through this professionally structured CNA Study Guide, you'll get key points from CNA professionals, study tips to help improve your score, and a layout to help you get more out of your studies in less time. In sum, this Certified Nursing Assistant Study Guide will help you and your studies become more efficient and effective. What the Official CNA Study Guide Will Provide The Official CNA Study Guide was structured so give you the necessary tools to build upon your course work and help to focus your studies in the area you need more help with. To accomplish such a task, we've provided the following features inside the CNA study guide: 1 Pretest 2 Practice Tests with Answers Both Written and Critical Skills Coverage Flash Cards with procedures Complete coverage of the CNA NNAAP Standardized Testing CNA Study Guide Benefits Break Down The CNA Pretest has been designed to help you figure out where you are strongest and what subjects you need extra help with. This will ensure you spend the right amount of time on the right areas. The flashcards in this CNA Study Guide have been developed to help you prepare for all of the different practical factors you will most likely have to perform during your Skill Test set. The cards in this CNA Study Guide will help to ensure you can quickly flip through them and get the right information and quickly move on to the next set with the swipe of a finger (if you're using our ebook version) or turn of a page. Finally, at the end, we will have 2 full practice tests so that you can gauge whether or not you are fully ready for your final certification. This will focus on key questions that many previous CNAs have struggled with and will focus on those areas so as to give you the best indication of whether or not you are truly ready. Reasons Why You Need This CNA Study Guide Getting prepared for the CNA exam is no easy task. According to a result poll, over 27% of those that take the test, fail! That means those students wasted their money and their time. This can be absolutely frustrating and cause many problems in the future. Another reason having a CNA Study Guide on hand is super important is that once you become a certified nursing assistant, you will only have certification for that particular state. So, if you move to another state at some point in your life, you will have to re-certify in that state. That may sound easy, considering you might have done it for years before moving...however, imagine taking the drivers test again after all those years of learning how to really drive a car. You probably don't follow all of the rules, right? Well the same can happen to a CNA. They can develop the "get it done the right way" type attitude which won't test well on the certification exam. 10 out of 10 must have for all CNA's~CNA Exam Cram
