More About This Textbook

Overview

Designed to accompany the two-volume set of Paramedic Practice Today: Above and Beyond, these workbooks provide practice and reinforcement of the key material covered in the textbooks. The workbooks correspond to each volume of the textbooks chapter for chapter!

• Multiple question formats include matching, short answer, multiple choice, true/false, labeling, drug dosage calculations, and case studies, testing your knowledge in a number of different ways.

• Multiple-choice questions prepare you for this popular testing format.
• Labeling questions help visual learners.

• Chapter Summaries provide bulleted lists of the main points in the book and serve as a reminder of the material covered in each volume of the textbooks.
