Hi Everyone, I just took the written NREMT Basic yesterday, and it was a BEAR. I studied my ass off. I paid for and took the online tests for a solid week leading up to the exam. Every extra moment I had, I took 10-20 questions or more. I studied assessment, shock, diabetes, cardiac, all like there was no tomorrow. I can produce normal RR rates, normal pulse and B/P, and all kinds of "textbook" facts and numbers, all while keeping in mind safety, c-spine, and the ABCs are really all you need to know when answering a large majority of questions. My GPA was 95% in class and am not a bad test-taker, but all that said, I am pretty sure I failed it. HOLY CRAP was that test hard. I was only certain about like 5 answers, and I swear many of the other questions weren't even covered in our text. I SWEAR IT. One question was something like, "What should you be aware of when caring for a patient on a helicopter? a.) placement of pt's head on the helicpoter b.) the use of air splints is not a proper choice when preparing a pt for medvac, etc...." I mean, WTF? Am I missing something? As an EMT in CT, we can't care for pts on a helicopter! And furthermore, that information was NOT in MY textbook. Then, there was a question that came up twice, and I couldn't figure out if I had gotten it wrong the first time, and the test was trying to tell me something, like, "think about it again, jackass" or if I had gotten it right and the test was saying, "can you answer it right twice?", or if I was giving the test too much credit. UUUGH! Anyway, it cut me off at 70 questions. I'm dying to find out if I passed. Can anyone comment on repetitive questions on the NREMT Basic exam and the overall strangely difficult questions? :blink: Thanks! I so so hope I passed it. I really want to work on an ambulance.
