One of the most intimidating facts about the NREMT test is the fact that it is computer based. Around the mid 2000’s the NREMT switched from a linear pencil and paper based test to a computer-based exam. Through Person-Vue testing centers, the NREMT has been delivering hundreds of thousands of exams. The NREMT exam is now a CAT exam. CAT stands for Computer Adaptive Test. This means that as you progress through the exam, the questions will progressively become more difficult until you have proven to the computer that you’ve mastered any certain portion of the test.
