    Great tool to prepare for the NREMT written exam!

    I perform 48 hour Paramedic Refreshers and this workbook is is mandatory for my class. This provides a better teaching opportunity to my students while sufficing for my post exams. After I lecture the topics, they then complete the chapters we covered to check their knowledge. It also teaches them because it provides the correct answer with the rationale of why the answer is correct and the location stated in the textbook. The test questions are in the same "multiple" question format used in national curriculum exams. This is a great study guide and resourse for students taking the NREMT exam or the certified EMT wanting to increase their knowledge base.
