Book Description

Respiratory Care Exam Review: Review for the Entry Level and Advanced Exams, 3rd Edition, readies students with review materials for both the CRT and RRT exams! The material is presented in an outline format for efficient studying, with special boxes included in the chapter to highlight important information that is often included in the exam. The accompanying Evolve Web site provides practice exams for both the advanced and entry level exams to familiarize test-takers with the computerized exam format. Clinical simulations for the RRT are also included to give students the opportunity to practice this very difficult portion of the registry exam. New content has been added to the 3rd edition, including the latest updates to the NBRC content outlines implemented in 2009 and 2010. Be fully prepared with this comprehensive text!

  • Respiratory Therapy exam review designed to provide students with a complete, hands-on review for both the NBRC Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) and the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credentialing exams.
  • The material is presented in a detailed outline format, and each chapter includes a pre-test and post-chapter questions. Answers and rationales for both pre- and post-testing are located in the back of the book.
  • Book includes two practice exams. One practice exam for each exam (CRT & RRT) is located in the back of the book.  Answer keys with rationales for correct and incorrect answers are available on the Evolve Web site. The NBRC complexity levels of each question are indicated in the answer key to help the student better prepare for the actual exam.
  • Companion Evolve Website features two additional practice exams (one for the entry level and one for the advanced level exam) to provide the student with additional practice and simulate the test taking experience. Each practice exam consists of the same number of questions as on the actual NBRC exam. NBRC difficulty levels are included in the answer rationale for each question.  
  • Every chapter has been thoroughly revised to incorporate the newest (2009) NBRC Examination content outlines that were implemented in 2009 (CRT) and 2010 (RRT).
  • Unique! Exam Notes highlight special notes or instructions specific to either the entry level (CRT) or advanced exam (RRT) to help students use their study time more effectively.  Other key information relevant to the respiratory therapist is featured in specially shaded boxes.
    • Completely updated to reflect the newest NBRC Examination content outlines, with new information on: stress testing, oxygen titration with exercise, aterial line insertion, influenza vaccines and ventilator-associated pneumonia protocols.
    • Additional practice test questions with rationales added to both entry level and advanced practice exams provide rationales and detailed explanation for every question on the exam. 
    • Eleven clinical simulations included on accompanying Evolve site reflect the actual number of simulations on this difficult portion of the registry exam.

    Good book to review a couple weeks before the exam. It is written in outline form which makes a easy review. The short-cut equations are also good time savers. I passd my RRT first try.

    4.0 out of 5 stars NO CD-ROM May 12, 2010
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Bought this for the new 2010 RRT/Clinical Sim information. I am extremely annoyed that it DID NOT COME WITH THE CD-ROM!! As to other reviewers saying this book is incorrect; depends on how you look at it. The NBRC exam is flawed, so this book has to write to those flaws. It's just exam prep. No you wouldn't treat a patient by this. The book looks well put together with a pretest, review, and postchapter study for each of the 17 chapters. It has CRT/RRT practice tests with rationales. A page of commonly used equations. NO CD. Have to go to a website to take the computer tests and clinical sims. The clinical sims don't fit the browser properly so you have to scroll, but it does explain afterward better than the 2004 version. Between this, a hand-me-down Kettering, and experience I'm very confident I'll pass.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Love it October 3, 2011

    I like the workbook style. Read a reveiw then answer questions. Also it starts right at first semester and moves right along so excellent for bringing back all that was forgotten.

    5.0 out of 5 stars All you to pass the boards April 9, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book is well defined. It covers all the topics in a clear format. It provides access to the website for clinical simulations. More cost effective than Kettering. This is what I used to pass the boards.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Simple June 7, 2014
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    It's a great review book. Not as detailed as Kettering, but I didn't like Kettering because it was overly detailed and hard to read. I highly recommend this book if you are looking to refresh your knowledge or just to review. This was all I used and it helped me pass my CRT and RRT first time around. I personally found what helped me the most were the practice exams. It was easier to learn from answering wrong cause it pointed out my weak points and told me why the right answer was what it was which further my instigation to learn more in that area. I would highly recommend buying the Kettering tokens to take their practice exams as well. I didn't do it, but I know it would have helped me in my test taking skills and management.

    The text arrived in a timely manner. The book itself has several pages of very faded print. Hoping to copy from a classmate. Content is a very good study guide.
