EMT-Basic Review: A Case-based Approach offers a comprehensive review of all major subject areas covered by state and national EMT-Basic certification exams. This manual presents real-life cases or scenarios, including actual calls, and contains over 1,400 multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, and true/false questions based on these cases. The questions are based on the objectives included in the U.S. Department of Transportation's EMT-B curriculum and not on any specific texts, making this a valuable resource for any EMT-Basic course.
  • Includes a CD-ROM with two multiple-choice practice tests to help students prepare for the National Registry exam. The practice tests are scored, and each correct answer is followed by a rationale to help students understand why it is correct.
  • Features cases based on actual EMS calls, putting students in real-life situations for a more engaging and pertinent learning experience.
  • Each case includes Plan of Action sections, giving students a chance to formulate a treatment plan based on the case, then compare the plan to the "suggested treatment" and rationale in the answer key.
  • Includes answers with rationales at the end of each chapter, reinforcing key concepts and giving students instant feedback and an understanding of why an answer is correct.
  • A test-taking tips section discusses techniques that work with a variety of learning styles and goes over time management techniques to help prepare students for their exam.
  • The National Registry's EMT-Basic skill sheets are placed at the back of the manual for easy reference so students can review them before testing at the practical stations.
