Handy icons help you locate questions by subject, so you can review and test your knowledge in specific areas. The book also includes fun facts about the medical/EMT profession and its history.
Unlike most flashcards that come loose in a box, our flashcards are bound in an organized, portable book that makes studying a breeze. Write your answer on the front of the card, then compare it to the answer on the back of the card.

Getting Ready for the EMT ExamServing the public as an Emergency Medical Technician is a rewarding career for anyone who wants to enter the world of first responders. EMTs are on call 24 hours a day, every day—when disaster strikes, in life-threatening medical emergencies, and in other crisis situations. When EMTs answer a call for help, they must be prepared for anything and know how to act quickly and safely when someone’s life is in their hands.EMTs have a great responsibility to the public and must meet certain requirements before receiving EMT certification. Forty-six states require that candidates complete a training program and pass the appropriate National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) exam.If you are currently enrolled in an EMT-Basic/EMT certification program and are getting ready to take the exam, our EMT Flashcard Book will help you prepare.About Your EMT Exam
Your EMT certification requires that you take the EMT cognitive test and psychomotor test. Both portions of the exam must be passed in order to receive certification. The cognitive test is a multiple-choice test taken at a Pearson VUE testing center. The psychomotor test is a practical, or “hands-on,” examination. Your state EMS office or course instructor can give you detailed information about the specific requirements for that part of the exam.The EMT exam is a computer-adaptive test, or CAT, that delivers questions one at a time, and the questions are not randomly chosen but instead determined by your performance on the previous question. The software that drives the test continually adjusts to your ability level. The ability estimate gets more and more precise as the exam progresses. The exam ends when there is a 95% certainty that your demonstrated competency is above or below the passing standard. Because of its adaptive nature, the exam will serve up between 70 and 120 multiple-choice items, and you will have two hours to complete the test. Each question will have four answer choices. You need to choose the best answer for the question posed. The topics covered on the exam include airway and breathing, cardiology, medical, obstetrics and pediatrics, and trauma.For more information about becoming an EMT or locating a training program in your state, visit www.nremt.org.About This Book
