Ideal for review course, this book is a must-have tool for students preparing for either State or National Certification Exams. It includes over 2,000 multiple choice style questions based on the current DOT EMTParamedic curriculum objectives and content. The exam questions are written in a style similar to those found on State and National Exams and are easy to read. To ensure adequate practice, the more complex content chapters have more questions to ensure students are truly prepared. Delmar's Why-Driven EMS Review, 2E, is the companion text that explains the rationale for answers to the exam review questions. This is an indispensable tool for all paramedic students preparing for their certification exam.
