  2. Hi! Before taking my CNA exam, I stumbled upon this site:

    CNAPracticeExam.ecrater.com

    The practice exam had more than 600 multiple choice questions, which really helped me pass my written test. Now I'm pursuing my LPN at a community college.

    Didn't cost that much. Hope this helps.
