If you are new to the field of Sleep Medicine, you need this book! No other book combines the quality of material, clear and concise descriptions, and the tools needed to prepare for the RPSGT Exam.

If you are an experienced sleep tech, you need this book! The Sleep Medicine field is constantly changing and only Mr. Spriggs book incorporates the current scoring rules and addresses the latest trends in polysomnography.

If you are a Respiratory Therapist or other Healthcare Professional and considering a career in Sleep Medicine, this is the introductory text book to buy.

Highly recommended!

This book is fabulous! If you are looking for a book to help prepare you for the board exam, or just for working as a sleep technician, this book is by far the most comprehensive you will find. It is very easy to understand, yet completely thorough. The practice exam questions make it ideal as a study guide. I'm happy that it contains all the newest sleep scoring rules as well. Highly recommended.

I recently passed the BRPT and used a few different sources to prepare. This book was very helpful to me. The only issue that I have with the book is that there are errors in the answer key to the practice questions. The explanation was correct, however the letter attached to the answers were incorrect. This made me very nervous wondering if I was memorizing incorrect data. Number 161, 240, and 246 were incorrect. These are the only ones that I am aware of. Some of the answers did't have explanations so it is difficult to tell if there are other incorrect answers. Overall this is an easy book to read and understand..just don't 100% trust the practice test.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Sharpe PSG on June 2, 2011
Format: Hardcover
A valuable study tool, and excellent for someone already comfortable in the field of PSG, but god help you if you are a student and this is your only text.

Frequently the end of chapter questions, and the practice test at the end of the book, will require the student to look elsewhere for the answer as it is simply not in the book. Spelling and grammatical errors abound, Epoch examples are frequently either redundent or absent, and there is a marked trend towards ignoring Digital PSG. CPAP/BiPAP chapter cursory at best.
