So my mornings been pretty crappy.

The website is giving me 15 days till i can apply for my ATT to apply for another test again. (I think i should wait a little longer.)
Any ideas and suggestions as to the study material i should consider? Websites maybe? The results deemed my scores below:

Airway, Resp, and Vent: Low
Cardio and Resus: Med
Trauma: Low
Medical, OB, and Gyno: Med
EMS ops: Low

Before my exam, i studied for a month straight using JBL and with my Text and Workbook, Flashcards, Minor Scenarios (Not enough), Crosswords, Phone apps, Friends and relatives tested me, you name it..
I entered and left with a good amount of confidence, i re-read every question about 1000 times. SECOND GUESSED myself frequently. I didn't answers things arrogantly and i pretty much handled the entire test with a good amount of caution and confidence..

Any helpful input will do honestly. I'm still studying as i read through multiple forums to get some answers and help on need-to-know material.

Don't second guess yourself. You will get confused. Although the test isn't designed to confuse you the answers are based something like this:

Question: with semi tricky word or base vital in it.
A. Wrong answer
B. ** Correct answer **
C. Harmful answer
D. Semi right answer, but based off the "tricky" word in the question (They want to know you can read and comprehend it)

I read the questions and closed my eyes and envisioned the answer in my head before even looking at the 4 answer choices. I went with my gut. Ideally you know the material enough that you only need one or two choices. You should be able to eliminate the harmful answer and the incorrect answer right off the bat. Especially if you closed your eyes and envisioned the answer.

You got this!

If I'm navigating the site correctly, I don't see any reason to even buy it? It seems like you get access to all 599 questions (at EMT level... 699 at paramedic level) for free in the sandbox demo.

It sounds like you did poorly on the entire test, rather than a singular section.

Either:

1.) You don't have exposure to and development of critical thinking skills

2.) You don't know how to take a test designed to measure your ability to think critically

3.) You don't understand the material.

By the way you make it sound, it is one of the first two. Try to google information on critical thinking skills and testing.

Per the Facebook page, people fail the test choose answers that are physiologically impossible. I would review your anatomy and physiology chapter. A lot of books go over common diseases we respond to and their pathophysiology at the beginning of each chapter. It is usually organized by organ system of the body eg cardiovascular, pulmonary, endocrine. I would review that.

Like @joshrunkle35 said, it looks like you didn't understand the material or have poor testing skills due to getting average or below average on a lot of categories. It might be as simple as not knowing anatomy and physiology and picking answers that are physiologically impossible.

Another thing to know is the order of the steps in the patient assessment. If there are multiple answers, you pick the first step that it suppose to happen eve though you will eventually do all of it.

I know Anatomy and Physiology well. The test really took me by the blind side with the questions to be honest.
I was aware of the critical aspect going in. Like i said, i really felt confident going in and leaving. Of course, i was still worried.
I wont waste my time giving excuses but there had been sometime i had to shift my responsibility and focus onto other things
after graduating my class. A whole five months went by unfortunately. All i can do now is get additional resources, revisit my
class location and attend an Exam Review class they offer, and keep studying. I don't doubt there is a lot i may be missing or
have not yet retained. If there is any additional resources or good books you guys can offer by all means. Shoot.

Were you doing the practice questions on JB Learning to study? I don't really see how you could have been blind sided by the questions if so.

Don't be in denial. I don't understand how you can do poor in almost every category and average in two, yet be good at anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. You aren't just messing up one one or two categories. You didn't barely fail. You failed by a lot. I think it is very likely that you are not good at what you say you are. What if you are so bad at it that you don't realize it? You thought you were good at it so you didn't waste your time studying it or you just glossed over it, but it turns you are bad at it.

I studied over everything. Even what i considered myself to be efficient at. (wasn't a whole lot) There was no denial. I realize where i stand now. Im not implying a sense of superiority. But rest assure. I busted my chops and im not stopping now. So lets stop beating at a dead horse shall we?

And @Gurby i did ALL the chapters on JB. I retook them repeatedly. Marked down the chapters i got anything lower than a 75% on and evaluated them. I listen to each audio chapter and evaluate each answer right or wrong for further understanding. Im going to keep at it. But im glad i found this website to further enhance my understanding and studies. 15 days is too little for a retake. I need more time in the books than what i expected. My biggestco ncern now is to find more resources to study and practice off of.

So you did the chapters/presentations... But did you do the practice exam questions at "Navigate TestPrep"? The one with 599 total questions? I think that's the most important thing to work on, and it kind of sounds like you aren't aware that it exists.

When i took my EMT class they gave us the text book with a code for the online version. I was never told (or probably dont remember) about the Testpreo to be honest. I just want exposure to more indepth material

Do whatever you want, but I think you should focus most of your studying time on working through those 599 practice questions. Are you able to find the section I'm talking about? It's not that straightforward to find - I didn't know it existed until recently either.
