    Default NR EMT Test

    I'll be testing for my National Registry EMT in less than 1 month. I was looking for some insight to resources some others have used to prepare (i.e. websites, manuals, or any other tips/advice).

    Note: Yes I read and study the book, and also have a Brady edition study book from Barnes & Noble.

    Thanks!

    Default NR EMT Test

    The best advice I have for the test is to take or sit in on as many ALS type classes as you can. Might be a little late at this point but if you have to retake it or have the opportunity do it. A lot of it might be over your head but it helps you understand the bigger picture, not just what the basic book can offer you.

    I just took and passed my NREMT about three weeks ago. My test was 85% scenario based. Make sure you are comfortable with scenarios and patient assessment. Remember to follow the patient assessment chart.

    The remaining questions were mostly on OBGYN, Diabeates, and Airway. So I'd make sure i'm sharp on those three areas.

    Take your time when you do the test and RTFQ2 (read the full question twice)

    Talking

    read the questions carefully and then read all the answers exactly as they are worded. Don't read anything into the answers. There are usually 2 that don't make any sense at all and the other 2 will be close or similar , but with a few words different.
    Many times folks read the question and jump at the first one that kinda makes sense and choose it.
    The nat reg test is an interactive system with hundreds of questions in the test bank and adapts to change depending on how you are doing in a given area or topic.
    Some folks have the computer shut off in as little as 75 questions and others get to 150.
    If it shuts off sooner then the computer has determined you either really know your stuff , OR you have done so badly that you can't get a passing score. Don't go into the center all worked up. Just do your studying and go into it with the knowledge in your head and give it your best shot.
    Good luck.

    The test is a bitch. Make sure you know your stuff. Don't THINK you know it, KNOW you know it, or you will never, in your life, pass, because it will keep jumping back to the questions you get wrong.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for all the advice everyone, I really appreciate it. Chenzo you're exactly right with that; a person is only as strong as their weakest link.

    Chenzo is right on the money. The test is hard. One of my coworkers is the EMT coordinator at the local college. He tells me that you can figure that the scores on the National Registry are 1 grade lower than what his students get in the class (let me see if I can make better sense of that).

    A = 80% on NR
    B= 70% on NR
    C= fail

    Bottom line...........STUDY!!!

    I've been utilizing id44.com, as well as emtprep.com. Can anyone offer additional advice to some other useful practice testing sites?
