As a future EMT-B student I wanted to buy some books prior to my course beginning. I bought Mosby's, Aehlert's, and Brady's books. I finally got to this one (being the last I was to read), and have to say this is the best Ive seen so far. With clear concise text, and abundance of knowledge, real life situations, and amazing pictures (which Aehlert's has almost none of), I must say that this book is not only the most informative, but is also the most user friendly. It has a great index, glossary, and the anatomy pictures are cut outs of REAL humans. I mean it just doesn't get any better than this. I just found out a few days ago this is the book my instructor is going to use, and for a good reason!

Format: Paperback
I am an EMT-B instructor in West Virginia and have used this edition to teach my classes. I have found it to be a great improvement over previous editions. The text is easy to read, comprehensive and all-in-all an excellent text on EMT-B. My only gripe with the book is that it makes prehospital patient assessment somewhat confusing for new students. The book breaks patient assessment up into several chapters, giving the reader the impression that assessment is both difficult and complicated. This lack of single-chapter continuity coupled with the trepidation many new students bring to this module creates the impression that patient assessment is a disjointed, randomized activity. I have to tell my students that for patient assessment, these chapters are a good reference, but that I will tell them just how easy assessment is; TAKE NOTES!
If Brady would spend a little more time examining this module, I feel as though they can make it a little less imposing and a little more readable.

This EMT Emergency book ROCKS! As an EMT student, I find this book to surpass all other EMT books in print. The whole class loves the book as well. I recommend getting the, self study Workbook that accompanies the textbook. Without a doubt, it wins a Gold Metal and a Five Star Award for outstanding publication and instruction into the field of the EMT - Basic.

I am an EMT Instructor in Kentucky and have always used Brady. We are permitted to use other books (AAOS, Mosby) bur my feelings is "don't fix it if it isin't broken" I am on my 4 editions of Brady. This 8th edition is an excellenct source of information. Very valuable teaching tool. The scans are to the point and easy to understand. The illistrations are clear & descriptive. I suggest additional pictures/descriptions/mechanism of injuries in the atlas of injuries. Students enjoy this section very much. (morbid people) and I think a section of practice scenarios would be a great addition also. Thank you Brady...again
