EMS Practice Tests

Testing for any NREMT exam can be nerve-racking regardless of how prepared you are.  Confidence and peace of mind can be yours prior to testing if you take advantage of a practice test, especially those that give you immediate test grading. Many tests provide a detailed cumulative test scoring and test tracking; perfect feature because it allows you to see your progress throughout the entire test so you can improve your weak areas and optimize the areas you are already strong in. We strongly suggest everyone make use of practice testing.

The following is a list of Emergency Medical Certification testing centers and approved practice tests.

This affiliate provides some free testing; however, be sure what you obtain follows current certifications and is up-to-date. Test-Guide/EMT states, “Prepare for your upcoming EMT exam with our free EMT practice tests.  The sample questions in our EMT practice exams simulate the actual questions you will see on your exam.  Our sample exams require no registration, and include scoring and answer explanations.  EMT practice tests are an effective way to study for your NREMT exams.  Our free EMT practice sample tests provide you with an opportunity to assess how well you are prepared for the actual EMT test, and then concentrate on the areas you need to work on.”

Be sure to do some research before choosing your practice test provider. There are usually practice exam fees; look around-some are low and others can be quite high.  Some only require a one-time membership fee, others are fees per exam.  Then, verify if the testing material is NREMT and state certified and look for ones that are updated to meet the new EMS Education Standards. Many use old terminology and you need the most up to date tests, and they are better if written by Nationally Certified EMTs and Paramedics.
