Are your questions from old NREMT exams?

No, it would be illegal to take their questions. We offer the same types of questions, that cover the same categories that you’ll see on your NREMT exam. They come from current DOT, AHA, and state guidelines.

About the NREMT

How much time do I need to study for the NREMT?

We recommend that you allow 2-8 weeks to study for the NREMT. Use our website, study your books, and review your classroom materials. If you have less time to study (i.e. the night or week before the exam), we can still be useful in that we expose you to the types of questions and the format of the NREMT. However, this is not the type of test you should cram for.
