    Good Practice Tests for National EMT-B

    I was looking for something that focused on the content of the NREMT-B. While the exam is computer adaptive, this book of practice tests gave you so many questions, that it made for excellent review. It does not help you if you don't already know how to figure out the concepts you're not familar with. Make sure you have your text book to go back and prepare after you grade yourself on these practice exams. It was a fantastic book of tests, and I highly recommend it.
