Reviews

Praise for the second edition: "In this book, the tools and clear presentation of information related to the actual testing process provide the learner with a framework for confidence as he or she prepares for the exam. More important, however, is the elaborate presentation of the certification content and the attention to the important physical and psychosocial elements of the human aging process." - Geraldine Bednash, PhD, RN, FAAN Executive Director, American Association of Colleges of Nursing
