Taking any EMS exam is challenging. The amount of content you are expected to remember and know how to apply all piled into a 200 question test can seem overwhelming.

spellcheckThis week we talk about some tips and methods that have worked for us when taking exams, the systems that Jim recommends to his website members and discuss some  techniques used by others as well.

Less face it, passing the exam means you get to work or keep working. There’s a lot on the line and no one is going to give you the answers to the questions.

Take a listen to this episode as Jim, Josh and caller Dan Limmer discuss this topic, joined by John Broyles in the live chat room.

EMS Study Tips | Learning vs. Memorizing

If you are a paramedic or EMT student, refreshing or brand new. Studying the content for exams is always a task less than favorited. However, being an EMS professional requires you to not merely memorize content that will help your patients but actually know and understand the content and how it’s applied.

So with so much content to absorb, how do you learn it vs. simply memorizing it for an exam? In this EMS study tips video I talk about how you can learn the content required to be a knowledgeable EMS provider. Yes you still may have to memorize certain aspects of what you need to know, but learning the content and understanding it will most certainly help you recall what you need to on exams and out in the field.
