I used the 2007 book that was based off the 2005 ECC Guidelines but there's a newer one coming out soon.

I used this book to study for my NREMT exam and it definitely helped.

When I compare the test questions that were in this book with the ones that were on my actual exam, I honestly cannot rate this book more than 1 star. The questions in the book were very easy with one clear and concise answer. If you expect the actual certification exam to be like this, you're in for a rude awakening. The questions on the actual test were tricky to say the least with many questions having more than one correct answer (some had as many as 3 correct answers). One must choose what they feel is the BEST answer which we know isn't going to be the same answer for everybody. No such questions in this book. I took the 4 sample tests in this book and only missed 7 questions on all 4 tests combined yet I spent the week waiting for the results of my certification test not having an earthly clue if I had even passed the stupid thing! IMHO, there's nothing that can truly prepare you for these ignorant tests except to try to stay calm and read the questions thoroughly and don't dwell on one single question-move on and go back and catch it later. I feel that is the best advice one can follow because if you study this book and feel confident after taking the book tests, when the actual test is put in front of you, you'll know what I mean!

You may find like I did that you did very well on the book tests (a couple of them I only missed 1 out of 150). Don't expect to ace the real thing. I passed on my first try, but I certainly did not ace it.
Anyone who has experienced EMT State tests knows that the questions are much more complex than these practice tests. You find questions that will not have the answer you were taught in your class rather the next best answer.
I even had a paramedic tell me that the EMT test is worse than the paramedic test because it's your first experience at these types of tests.

As a teaching professional I know that the more questions that a student sees the better. Although the vast majority of the questions in this book were different to the type of question found on the National Exam, it was very helpful. I would certainly recommend this book as an aid to your classroom instruction, theoretical workbook and your ambulance practical time. In my opinion, there is only one way to ensure a successful result and that is to read, learn and inwardly digest the information found in your course study guide...there is no shortcut! In conclusion, this book did help me to find the areas of the syllabus I was weak in and approximately 45% of the questions were actually in my national exam in one form or another.

Lately I have been in more than a few conversations about taking EMS exams. I took my EMT training at a local college. Much to my chagrin, one fellow told me how sorry the college program was because it did not teach one how to take the (EMT) test. Another fellow told me that he studied for his (paramedic) test by going through as many multiple choice questions as he could find.

I know at least one really smart gal and guy both of whom have failed the EMT Basic test twice. It takes not only a certain amount of training and education to pass the test but a certain amount of preparation as well. One needs to know how to take a multiple choice test where only the *best* answer is the *correct* answer. And one does not need to be stressed out by the time one takes the test.

This book offers a "battle plan." There are 150 questions on the National Registry exam. There are 24-30 on patient assessment, etc. This book offers practice tests so that one can learn how to deal with multiple choice questions with more than one good answer, but again, only the best answer is correct. This book helps one identify their areas of weakness. Patient assessment: 12 questions missed out of 30? Might be a good idea to review that topic. One does not need to get an A. One needs to pass the test. Getting better in a weak area may be just the ticket.

Some people get an attitude problem. I heard one gal say that she got mad halfway through her test and just started answering questions. She got a 67. Too bad she did not keep her temper under control a little while longer. She could have saved a second trip to the testing center and all the hurry up and wait that goes along with it. During my EMT exam, it took an hour to get us checked in.

This was the best study guide book of the 3 that I could find at the local library. The best one was one I had to order to get my hands on it (SUCCESS! for the EMT).
But this one was my next favorite exam study guide book. It has 4 practice exams and that's what you need to do - practice taking multiple choice tests over and over. The first 3 exams consist of 150 questions each. It has explanations at the end of each practice exam. All four study guide books I used, including this one, had a few wrong answers or typos, so watch out for that. The explanations were thorough and good. The last and fourth "exam" was actually a fill-in the blank test of 160 questions which I didn't find as useful. I considered the first 3 exams of 150 questions each to be the most useful for practice.

The actual NREMT exam was much, MUCH more difficult than any of the study guides, but this was still good practice. Just make sure you understand the reasons behind the answers or you may not do so well on the actual exam which is a LOT harder than any of these study guide exam questions.
I passed my NREMT exam last week my first time, and it stopped me at 70. On some questions, there were 3 or 4 good answers. Good Luck!
