Test Preparation System for The Paramedic Certification Exam
First the bad news: Taking the EMT-Paramedic exam is no easy feat, and neither is getting ready for it. Your future career as a paramedic depends on your passing the exam, but there are all sorts of pitfalls that can keep you from doing your best. Here are some of the obstacles that can stand in the way of your success:
- Being unfamiliar with the format of the exam
- Being paralyzed by test anxiety
- Leaving your preparation to the last minute
- Not preparing at all!
- Not knowing vital test- taking skills: how to pace yourself through the exam, how to use the process of elimination, and when to guess
- Not being in tip- top mental and physical shape
- Arriving late at the test site, having to work on an empty stomach, or shivering through the exam because the room is cold
What’s the common denominator in all these test-taking pitfalls? One word: control. Who’s in control, you or the exam?
Now the good news: The LearningExpress Test Preparation System puts you in control. In just nine easy- to- follow steps, you will learn everything you need to know to make sure that you are in charge of your preparation and your performance on the exam. Other testtakers may let the test get the better of them; other testtakers may be unprepared or out of shape, but not you. You will have taken all the steps you need to take to succeed on the EMT-Paramedic exam.
Here’s how the LearningExpress Test Preparation System works: Nine easy steps lead you through everything you need to know and do to get ready to master your exam. Each of the steps includes both reading about the step and one or more activities. It’s important that you do the activities along with the reading, or you won’t get the full benefit of the system. Each step tells you approximately how much time that step will take you to complete.
We estimate that working through the entire system will take you approximately three hours, though it’s perfectly okay if you work more quickly or slowly than the time estimates assume. If you can take a whole afternoon or evening, you can work through the whole LearningExpress Test Preparation System in one sitting. Otherwise, you can break it up and do just one or two steps a day for the next several days. It’s up to you—remember, you’re in control.
Step 1: Get Information
The first step in the Learning- Express Test Preparation System is finding out everything you can about the EMT-Paramedic exam. Once you have your information, the next steps in the LearningExpress Test Preparation System will show you what to do with it.
Part A: Straight Talk about the EMT-Paramedic Exam
Why do you have to take this exam, anyway? Simply put, because lives depend on your performance in the field. The EMT-Paramedic cognitive exam is just one part of a whole series of evaluations you have to go through to show that you can be trusted with the health and safety of the people you serve. The cognitive exam attempts to measure your knowledge of your trade. The practical skills exam attempts to measure your ability to apply what you know.
It’s important for you to remember that your score on the EMT-Paramedic cognitive exam does not determine how smart you are or even whether you will make a good paramedic. There are all kinds of things an exam like this can’t test: whether you are likely to show up late or call in sick a lot, whether you can keep your cool under the stress of trying to revive a victim of cardiac arrest, whether you can be trusted with confidential information about people’s health. Those kinds of things are hard to evaluate, while whether you can click on the right answer is easy to evaluate.
This is not to say that clicking on the right answer is not important! The knowledge tested on the cognitive exam is knowledge you will need to do your job. And your ability to enter the profession you’ve trained for depends on your passing this exam. And that’s why you’re here—using the LearningExpress Test Preparation System to achieve control over the exam.
