I found this book extremely helpful and loved the Fast Facts, Notes, Exam Tips and Clinical Tips. While other exam prep courses had great content, your book helped me to think more like a NP, and "pull it all together." I would highly recommend your book to any Adult-Gero NP student or graduate. It deserves 5 stars.
