|I used the 3rd edition - most up to date at the time I took my test - of this book and passed my CHT on the first go! I highly recommend this book. It is test questions and rational for right / wrong answers after. This helped me with my clinical reasoning and timing of answering questions. I would recommend having other resources, but each question is reference to a text book so if I wasn't sure I would read back through those chapters for further understanding. I think it is valuable to buy the most up to date version, as the content could change. I have my boss's book from when he took the test in 2005 and the 3rd edition is much larger - so much more information :) Overall, wonderful resource. Thanks Nancy and Susan for helping us pass and become skilled CHTs!
