    Failed my first attempt - NREMT-P at 150
    Passed 2nd attempt at 130.
    I literally read the book over the second ime. Used Jb learning but more so Medic Test.com. I also developed different studying methods to help me retain information. Don’t give up. Keep pushing

    I wanted to leave a few comments here. Yes, I passed after 70 questions as well. NREMT-BASIC

    I have been a Paramedic in California for almost 20 years. NR was alot different in 1999. I am currently looking to promote to a Fire Chief's position, and was required to have a minimum of NREMT-B to be considered. I let my NREMT-P lapse in 2004...because it was hard to maintain and we didn't need it anymore (HUGE MISTAKE). Mind you, I'm a local college instructor. Still active in the field. I have never lapsed and we have a pretty aggressive expanded scope. I though the EMT-B exam would be easy. I teach it! I think I'm a damn good medic. Until right around question 10.

    I walked out of the Pearson Vue test absolutely knowing I failed. I could not believe how deep some of the questions were into patho-physiology! Inotropic effects, hemoglobin and enzyme variants, polarization cycles! I'm not giving the farm away...but when I talked to other people about my test, they too were blown away. Maybe I got some of the secret pilot questions. I honestly was expecting ABC, PENMAN, DCAP-BTLS, OB/GYN stuff, etc. But then, I got some ambulance driving questions which are mentioned in text books for just a couple of sentences. It was nerve racking. I admire you new folks chasing this, because if your tests were anything like mine, WOW! You're so much farther ahead than I was when I first became an EMT in 1993!

    The point is, STUDY! Remember BLS before ALS. Do simple stuff first. Do the logical thing first. Use common sense.

    Oh...and teach the old guys a thing or two. We need it. And for what it's worth, keep your NR certs up to date. You may be like me in 20 years looking for a promotion and freaking out!
