How to Prepare for the EMT Paramedic Exam 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

Pretty good book. There are some real difficult questions which one could argue there is more than one correct answer. JUST LIKE Registry. The explanation of the answer also include why the wrong choices are incorrect. This is truly a highlight this manual has over the others. I recommend this book not only for national registry but also as a study guide while students are in class.

An an instructor, I recommend text book for students. This text is one of the better ones available. It has a comprehensive review of the paramedic curriculum and three realistic practice test.

As an RN who wanted to take the paramedic exam, this book was extremly useful in preperation for the National Registry Test. I have three other test prep books and this one was the best.

I used this book it helped me get some idea of how the test is laid out and as a reminder of information I could refresh myself on. I would suggest it to anyone that feels they could use an additional resource to study. The questions are almost Identical to the exam. Good luck!

This book has many scenario-based questions just like the actual exam. The three practice test were a challange. I recommend this book.
