Yea I finished around 5pm, I checked about an hour ago and nothing. So guess I'll just I'll have to wait. Going to be a long weekend.Took mine 0945 friday, got results around 2 or 3 pm. Your probably too late on Friday for same day results. I think you have to wait till Monday.
I don't know. I felt more confident while taking it than last time I went into it. I had over 100 questions, and felt like I had some repetitive questions don't know if that means anything. I want to say I feel like I passed, but I don't. I'll have to wait and see.How do you feel you did?
Yea. I definitely won't torture myself like this again. If I move on none of my tests will be on Friday.They should put a disclaimer when signing up for Friday afternoon or Saturday testing dates. I did my I/85 exam on a friday afternoon and had a long weekend waiting for results. You'd figure I'd learn, but nope. I took my medic exam on a saturday morning and had a VERY long weekend waiting.
NREMT-B which is why I have no excuses to be failing it. The program I went through said they were the second best emt program in the state, so am I just an idiot? I did well in the class, read the entire 1000+ page workbook and did every question in it, but the NREMT is kicking my ***! I mostly used emtprep to study. I don't know what my problem is, cardiology I need to work at a bit more I feel like everything else I should be passing, especially trauma and operations.Is the the NREMT-B or NREMT-P test? How did you study for it?

Thank you, I'm definitely going to try using that. I think part of my problem is, that I need to have a better understanding of what causes what. The "What should you do" questions or "What's your next step" I think I can figure out pretty easily. It's the "What is the problem" questions or "What is this pt experiencing" that I have most trouble with. Most of those I've seen throw in at least two very similar type conditions listed that trip me up. I don't know... Than you for the flash card info.I don't know what to tell you, really. A lot of people would probably consider this overkill, but here is what I do:
-Get a spaced repetition flashcard program (http://ankisrs.net/ is free and what many MD students use).
-Any time you encounter something you don't know or don't understand, learn about it and make flashcards.
-The program will schedule flashcard reviews, so you're continually reviewing them forever. It will show the cards to you more often if you get them wrong, and less often if you get them right.
I did this all through medic school, and ended up with ~2000 flashcards. I also went through my state protocols and made flash cards for everything. The program makes sure that I retain all of that information, and if I forget something it will pester me by showing me the card over and over until I do remember it.
When I was studying for the NREMT written, I used a website similar to emtprep. Any time I got a question wrong, I copied the question into a flashcard, researched wikipedia to learn more about the topic and then made flashcards from that as well. The goal is to understand the why's and how's, not just to memorize answers to questions.
Now that I'm working in the field, any time I encounter something I don't know about I make a note of it, and come back to make flashcards later. Any new medication gets flashcards, any disease process, lab values, etc.
It's very easy to read a textbook and either not understand the material, or simply not retain it 1 month later. I love this flashcard-based approach because once you enter a piece of information onto a card, assuming you keep reviewing them, the program will make sure you remember it forever.
