For as long as there has been an NREMT exam, students have studied the wrong things… or not studied enough of the right things. They re-read their books, look over exams, make flashcards. In short, they study facts.

Don’t just study facts. Study how to apply facts to emergency scenarios.

Don’t get us wrong. You need to know the facts. (If you haven’t learned the facts in class, you are in extra trouble right now.) But what students need to know for the NREMT—and what educators need to tell students—is that they need to practice application.

Here’s an example: You know how to splint a leg. That’s the knowledge – but it’s just the foundation. What if there are two fractures in the leg? What if there are many fractures in the leg? What if the patient with the injured leg is also in shock? What if they also have internal injuries that aren’t immediately obvious? That’s the application – and it’s the difference between a pass and a fail.

This concept was the genesis of Limmer Educations’s NREMT Exam Cram—an NREMT study guide that highlights the most important NREMT study concepts (facts and application).

Updated in 2023, the study guide includes:
  • A checklist of application-based areas for EMT students to study.
  • Basic principles of pathophysiology.
  • CPR facts.
  • Test prep tips for the NREMT.
  • Med term reminders.
  • Skeletal anatomy.
  • Plus, below you’ll find a list of additional resources to help you master some of the concepts in this study guide.

Please share the link with other EMS students, educator and practitioners. Enjoy!

P.S. When it comes to application, Limmer Education makes NREMT review apps that use this philosophy to prepare you to pass the NREMT the first time.
