First of all, I passed the exam! Your review course definitely helped. It was an excellent review. In addition to your course/book, I used her review CDs and books, which in retrospect was way too much in depth and not very focused
(we are not printing the name here). Your course was much more on target, less extraneous information and the right depth.

I just wanted to thank you again for offering your
course. I know it made a difference in my passing
the ANCC exam in December. I have taken the
exam three other times and failing by 10 or less points.
My primary problem area was diagnosis and planning.I averaged between 50-65% on each of the preceding exams. For the December test, I used only your study materials and scored 80% in diagnosis/planning.

I was lucky enought to be invited to write the Dermatology chapter for Hector-Dunphy s and Winland-Brown s The Art and Science of Advance Practice Nursing (1st ed). I have to say that my most challenging job is motherhood. Both my daughters are still fairly young – one is aged 6 years and the other is now 11 years old. Well, enough said for now.
PS: the company is growing quickly. I will be selling audio tapes, questions, and other materials soon.
This is Jovonne s story.
I graduated in January 2011. Took a review course called
——— (name given by student, but I am witholding it) before graduation. I took ANCC May 5 failed. I studied all summer then took AANP September 7 failed. I took ANCC September 27 failed. I cried and I was so disappointed.
I knew the webinar would be perfect for me because I did not want to sit though a 9 hour class. I m too impatient and I felt like that was too much info to be cramming when I took the other review course. I feel like God led me to your website.
I took the webinar and studied for two weeks after we finished the last class. I did just what you told me to do and God allowed me to pass the AANP exam March 5. When I saw the word passed I just started praising God I was so happy that I forgot about the other people at the testing site that was taking their tests. It s a great feeling.
There were so many questions that your webinar covered that was on my test. I just want to thank God for allowing me to find you and utilize your services to help me with that exam. I m sorry this email is so long but I am so thankful. You can use any part of this email I know it is too long to use all but feel free to use what you want.
For those who failed keep the faith you will eventually pass if you don t give up. I realized that I was doing something wrong when I studied and failed those test and I knew I needed help.
Maria you gave us so many test taking strategies that I did not learn in my other review. I forgot to add that I also listened to the _____ tapes over the summer but still failed the both exams after listening to those CDs.
Thank you Maria. God bless!
My reply to Jovonne.
Oh my gosh. Wow. You made my week. What can I say, Jovonne? It warms my heart when I hear stories like yours. Indeed, I count myself as lucky for having YOU as my student. Thank you so much for your generous letter.

I took the test Friday the 26th of February and it was number five for me, and I passed, thanks so much for a great review class. I have taken in the past. review class no success ( I do not not give names of other courses). I have. (another review company), books and review CD s and tests, I had no luck with those either, I also studied. (another review company) without success, so thank you very much. You made it simple but effective and informative. Thanks again. Forever grateful.
I am pleased to announce that with the help of your review course and test-taking skills, I have passed the ANCC FNP exam. I want to express my appreciation to you and your course considering that I have tried others, taken the AANP unsuccessfully twice and can now say I am a certified FNP-BC. If you even need to use me as an example of a success story, I am more than willing to help cause I know there are others out there that feel and have the same experience. It doesn t mean you weren t smart enough, it means you did not know how to test correctly. It would have been nice to pass on the first time but it does not always happen that way and I understand that. From Enid
I took the FNP AANP boards this weekend and passed. I just wanted to let you all know that the ONLY study material I used was Maria s. I read her book cover to cover and attended the online review course in February and I felt so confident walking into the boards! Thank you!
I attended the January live review in Florida and wanted to update you on my progress. I took my board exam (AANPCP) on 2/25 and passed, YEAH. I felt so prepared after reading your book over the past few months and taking the live review. I even used the book to study for my final exam in school and passed because of your book and the exam tips in the chapters. I have rave about your book over the pay few months and the information to so many of my classmates. I actually tried to use another book and was very confused and stressed, you book is very straightforward. I want to thank you again, I feel that I was successful on my first attempt because of your book and review. Thank you!
