Ideal for review courses, The Paramedic Review is a must-have tool for students preparing for either State or National Certification Exams. It includes over 2000 multiple choice style questions based on the revised DOT EMT-Paramedic curriculum objectives and content. The exam questions are written in a style similar to those found on State and National Exams and are easy to read. To ensure adequate practice, the more complex content chapters have more questions to ensure students are truly prepared. Delmar's Why-Driven EMS Enrichment, is the companion text that explains the rationale for answers to the exam review questions. This is an indispensable tool for all paramedic students preparing for their certification exam.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Our Paramedic course was taught using the 5 volumes published by Brady. In an attempt to review for the National Registry exam I purchased this review guide to expose myself to different question formats and expanded knowledge base. This guide was no more than a duplicate of the supplemental workbooks that can be purchased with the original texts, so do not waste your money unless you are looking for a redundant review.
