IMHO the most comprehensive EMT manual out there. Excellent and well-illustrated book, combined with the website access code makes this an (almost) foolproof study guide for the National Registry EMT curriculum. After working with the book and using the websites interactive media I felt very confident about testing. And I passed the first time!
This book is needed for my EMT course…what I love about it most is that theres a scratcher inside..once you scratch it you go to their website, use the code and if you have an mp3 player, you can download the audio which reads each chapter word by word!
This book really helped out a lot as I obtained my EMT! I now Have this book for sale and will sale cheap if anyone needs it! It is like brand new I didn’t even use the internet code that’s in the book!
If you want an all inclusive comprehensive text that covers all the material necessary to prepare you or your students to pass the NREMT exam without making it a master’s level degree this is it! This book covers the required information for the New National EMS Education Standards while keeping the reading level below college level.
I bought this for the EMT-B course offered by TEEX (in Central Texas). If you are looking to save a few bucks, buy a used one that is an older edition. The course syllabus will tell you to get the Tenth Edition only, and that you might also need to get the workbook….but an older edition will work, and the workbook isn’t needed.
I picked this book up for my EMT class. Its just what I expected. The school was charging $125 for the soft cover, so picking this one up for below $80 was a steal, plus its a hardcover. The online modules help out a lot and the entire book includes good illustrations and tables for quick reference. A solid heavy duty text book.
It was new and all the pages were there unlike the book i ordered before and the 1st chapter was torn out.
