The book is very thorough but very difficult to read. It offers no visuals (which would be particularly helpful in the anatomy portion) and is not helpful to anyone that is not a read/write learner. The book had great content, but I was disappointed in the structure. I wouldn't recommend this version to many people.

I felt you need several books in order to study for the SCRN exam. The book is good for organization from pre-hospital to rehab. However, I am a visual learner also and I wrote my own notes and study also the CNRN book for assessment. Please study the circle of willis and understand what goes on based on the stroke. This helped me.

I love this book. It has been an excellent resource for me as a neurosurgical ICU nurse. It has also been a great reference for training new nurses on our unit and other stroke units at our hospital. I need to purchase a new one because I loaned mine out and that person did not take good care of it.

I also used this book for review prior to the exam but the outline format was tedious and sometimes hard to keep my interest. I am mentoring other staff who also felt another book "Fast facts for Stroke Nursing" was an easier read along with the book above.

I don't like "outline format" books. I prefer to read the text and make my own outline for review for exams. So far, it does seem to be comprehensive, but I'm a visual learner, and it just doesn't work for me.
Sue B Pugh, CNRN,MSN,RN Feb 26, 2015 Report Abuse
This is an excellent source to use to study for the SCRN test. It provides information on the topics that are tested on the SCRN test. Great to give away as a chapter prize or gift.
Renee Ovando, SCRN Feb 22, 2015 Report Abuse
I was not a fan of the organization and design of the content. The entire book is written in the format of an outline. Visually and mentally exhausting, very monotonous. NO tables, quick facts, practice questions, illustrations. The format should help one easily find certain sections and identify key concepts within the text I expected more for the price and found myself looking to other materials to study for the SCRN (Hemispheres, neuro class slides). I passed, but I honestly gave this book only about 2 days of studying due to the formatting. If there would have been a "sneak preview," I would have known not to purchase this, but considered the source and expected it would be the most helpful study guide.
Michael Samu, SCRN Jan 17, 2015 Report Abuse
Since this is the only book currently available for SCRN exam. I think it should cover all questions that will be seen in the exam. I went back after that exam and reviewed a few subjects and couldn't find any info in the book. The next edition should cover the entire exam.
