It’s rough. Not worth $30 at all
By Happy the happy to happy
Originally got the app after trying the ten sample questions and thought, “hey this might be a good app to prepare me based on the difficulty”. I’d rather be over-prepared than under-prepared and I’d like to believe this app helped me with that, but it’s questionable. The creators have a vast knowledge and are pretty significant individuals in relation to the NREMT, but, they are poor in delivering their knowledge. I paid $30 for a quality app and got a sub-par few tests. First off, the narrator makes you feel like crap, saying if you missed this question you should question yourself in your career pursuit. I understand this is maybe a good wake up call for some, but after failing the NREMT once, I don’t need opinionated bull**** for $30. It’s pathetic. Then in the app, on tests, you don’t receive any rationale for any of the questions after you submit the test. How are you supposed to know why you got a question wrong? Also, the audio rationales for the pretests are as if they used a phone microphone trying to put out an app as soon as possible. Overall, it had potential but it’s definitely not worth $30, maybe $15 at most. If you want to blow $30 on an okay app to study, go for it.
This app really helped out a lot. I read and studied the book, passed the class and was still scoring low on this app because I would second guess myself.
The written rationals are good but the audio rationals that expand on them are even better. Bill really makes you think beyond just memorizing facts.The questions are challenging but helped improve my critical thinking skills.
Bill is tough but fair and I found his commentary fun, (although I was in the military so I don’t take it to heart because it’s part of the motivation process) if your focusing on your feelings and not the material, then what are you doing? “Did you even read the book?”
Side note: I passed the NREMT first try, this app made it seem too easy!
If you have 30 bucks to blow.......

Awful doesnt even look like the NREMT exam.
Don’t recommend it.. and the narrator is a jerk.
There is even a question where the answer is “perform a 12 lead” thats not a national standard thats more of a local protocol..
Anyways it does go way above standards but if you looking to kill your confidence before taking the exam well then this is the all for you lol.
Worth your time and money
By Emt Carl
I failed the NREMT on my first try and got this app a week before my next attempt and passed it, highly recommend it.
Helps out for registry
I think this app is expensive and the guy talking is rough however these questions helped me study and pass the registry. Registry is a tough test and this will get you into the thinking mode you need for registry.
Challenging but worth it.
The assessments in this app are very challenging, way above what you need at the EMT Basic level, you won’t be able to BS your way through these tests, they require a thorough understanding of the material. This is A GOOD THING. You should be trying to go above and beyond in this profession and this app will help to challenge you to not only meet but exceed industry standards... I’ll admit I rarely passed the assessments but I made sure I listed to all the explanations, reviewed my book on the ones that I missed and felt confident in taking the NREMT. Sure the voice is a little tough/harsh but guess what? So is life... so deal with it. If you’re ready for some hardcore studying and someone telling you like it is especially while backing it up with the latest science this is the app for you.
Take what he says on board, review and keep driving on... because sometimes you need to be told that your current level of knowledge ain’t gonna cut it.
Oh yea and thanks to this app I passed NFEMT on the first attempt. Highly recommended this to all my classmates.
This is app does have the potential to be used a great study tool, due to the knowledge the owner does have. Although, there are multiple areas within the app that prove otherwise. First off, Limmer as a teacher is too negative (or too "real" in his words) when explaining rationales. It is discouraging and creates a negative study environment. When it's time to learn, no one wants to be put down and told "they should second guess if they should go into this profession". Second, For a person that passed the NREMT on first attempt, I very rarely passed the exams from this app. The material is too far in depth and not precise enough to give a true stance on where a student stands. Overall, this app is not a good representation of the chance a person has at passing the NREMT or not. If you want to go to medical school, by all means, purchase it!
The most condescending person in the world.
By Mustache Von Pancakes
Listening to Dan Limmers reviews is painful. He is so amazingly condescending. Dan hides behind the curtain of "back in my day.." and "im here to toughen you up not coddle you..." but he comes across as arrogant.
In the introduction of this app he announces his robust background in EMS and how he has become the messiah in all things Emergency Medicine, and for the most part he isnt wrong. His background is robust. He has a great pedigree regarding EMS. I used his books in my program (which is well regarded in my state and i did very well in). I cannot say that Dan doesnt know his stuff, in fact hes exceptional at it knowing EMS.
He claims the EMT pass app is witten to test you and created in a way to be harder than the NREMT test itself. To his credit his questions are good, albiet very questionable at times, but for the most part they are good. My issue is that he feels the need to give his opinon on every choice you made. For example, numerous questions have an audio recording of him summarizing the question with the words "you chose this? you gotta be kidding me". Right or wrong, Dans opinion doesnt matter, what matters is that you understand the material and the reason why its wrong beyond a "what are you a dummy?" response from the EMT messiah Dan Limmer. Youre better off getting a free app and testing on that over and over with out the annoying east coast good ole' boy trying to tell you why youre an idiot.
Im sure ill get all kinds of hate from the EMT fanatics, thats fine. But if I had to sit in the ambulance next to the constant and arrogant critiques that Dan provides, I would happily quit to find another career.
Just passed my NREMT
First off let me say that I put it off for way too long for fear of failing. What a stupid idea!! Just take it! Yesterday I finally took my test and I passed! I have to say it was due to how well I did in class and my instructors but this app takes what you already know and teaches you how to use that information for the test. There is no substitute for studying hard, however I must say that without utilizing these practice tests and listening to the rationale for the questions I missed AND the ones I got right I probably would have had to take the exam more than once. Absolutely worth the money. Don't waste your time on other Apps. Study and take your test!! Don't wait until you literally have one day left to take it like I did.
Wish the app worked
I downloaded the app hoping it lived up to the hype from a you tube video I saw. I can't get the sound to work. The questions are decent but the selling point for me is the commentary explaining why. I am still using the 911 toolkit and am happy with the results.
