I took my NREMT test this Monday and yes it lived up to the hype. I had previously not passed on my first attempt and frankly I didn't study much I thought it would be easy because everyone seems to think stick to the ABC's and you will be ok. I took a month to take the test again and what really helped me was not memorizing signs and symptoms of certain illnesses like I did the first time testing, but learning what causes these symptoms to happen. Once you have an idea to how the body reacts when in crisis you will learn that the body always does things for a reason. Do yourself a favor and study everything, do not skip anything because you will feel dumb that you missed a question that would have taken you 1 second to remember if you had just looked it over. Studying and knowing all vocabulary will help you tremendously, yes there may be questions you don't know but if you know everything you will most likely know how some of the answers present and you can eliminate from there. Learn this stuff don't memorize it, do that for yourself and your future patients. All in all I thought near the end of the test I was getting some easy questions, my test stopped right at 70. I started doubting myself but sure enough I checked and I passed. Take your time and good luck.
