I graduated EMT school and had to wait a month before taking the NREMT. Once I finally got to take it, I was only 82 questions in before it cut me off. Which means I either did really good or really bad. And as it turns out, I did really bad. Then I knew I had to study. I read some of the reviews for other EMT study guide on Amazon, but what sold me on this book was that some people had used it and passed at around 70 questions.

So I ordered it. Then used it to study for two weeks straight before taking the exam. The second time I took it the computer shut me off at 70 questions. Less than the time it shut me off before. I was nervous. My results came in a few days ago. I PASSED!!!!

This book is really amazing. It covers all thew major topics without bombarding you with needless information that the EMT textbooks have in it. The questions were almost exactly the same as the ones on the actual National Registry Exam. BUY THIS BOOK!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real review and success for the EMT-B May 31, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book when taking the NREMT-B test after waiting three months after the class to take it. It made for a great review material to help refresh my mind. Took my time with this and coupled along with Bradys EMT-B National Standards Self Test 3rd edition I passed my test at 70 questions. Word of advice, stay away from Kaplan's study material.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST review book ever!!!!! April 18, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I brought this book(Success for the EMT) March 15th, along with several other books to help me review for the NREMT computer based test, and this one was the BEST...I found the question(s) format be similar to CBT, the sectional break-down of each area helped me to find and improve my weak points, and the best thing about this book I found not one "typo". The book contained over a 1,000 Q&A with detailed explanations. I worked through this whole book once and my weak areas twice... As of yesterday,(April 17th, 2008), I PASSED the NREMT-B with less than 70 questions answered... I say "thank you" to the people of Success! Thank You....

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what we needed! April 20, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After using just the EMT book to study for our EMT-Basic test and failing miserably, we bought this book hoping it would be more like the test. Waited 3 months after the class to try the test again. My husband and I both passed with 70 questions. Yes, there are a few typos and a few questions where the wrong answer is listed, but they were easy to move past. The questions got us in the right mind-set and we could see what they were actually asking for this time. Good Luck!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good - needs updating July 15, 2010
By PRjosh
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to help me study for the NREMT-B. I took the test within a month or so of completing my course and used the book as a supplmental aid the week before I tested to help review. For the most part the book has a good format and the information was good with nice explanations, however some questions were actually incorrect and a few explanations were not accurate or clear. Its a nice book, but make sure you reference a few different sources as you study for the NREMT-B because several of the materials used in training have spelling and grammatical errors, as well as some inconsistent information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Success!!! February 26, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for reviewing questions for my EMT national registry exam, and I like this book a lot because it has a great range of Q & A pertaining to the EMT exam. From EMS interdiction, The Well Being of an EMT, Med/Legal, The Human Body, Baseline vital Signs and SAMPLE History, to BLS, ALS and more. I would recommend this book to whoever needs to brush up on their EMT Skills or Practice for an exam.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helped me pass the test September 15, 2012
By Omar
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Helped me pass the exam at the 70 question mark! I also used a JB Learning website which was just as helpfull. I would recommend this for someone who has at least a couple of weeks of study time. The questions in the book are worded in a similar format as the Nat Reg Test, but the Nat Reg Test questions are a little more tough in general. If you use this book and a supplemental website combined you should have no problem passing the test. Good Luck!
