Here's my situation. I actually used to be an EMT. I worked for about 5 years but got burnt out and left the field in 2009. So my certification expired. But back then I did well in class, passed the practicals, the state written test, and the NREMT all on the first try. But those tests were on paper... So now I'm in another class to get my card back. I'm doing pretty well in class. Our instructors are awesome and went out of their way to set up a practicals test so we could see our weak points. I did well on that and passed all the stations. So I'm pretty comfortable with my hands on skills. But I keep hearing about how horribly difficult the NREMT is now because it's all computer based and it uses adaptive testing. Is it really THAT bad? I've been practicing with an app called EMT Pocket Prep, reading EMT Crash Course, and using an EMT flash cards book. I usually know most of the questions in those books and on EMT Pocket Prep I usually get between 80% (my lowest score) and 89%. But I see posts from people saying they also did well in class and on practice tests and then they still don't pass the NREMT (sometimes even after several tries). So obviously, that has me freaked out about it. Now that it's adaptive, is it really as hard as people keep saying it is?
