was suppose to be a new book but some of the test at the end of the chapters was already done. returned for a refund.
explains in depth in a simple to understand way. was in good condition
The book is very useful. I haven't taken my test or finished the book yet so I don't know how much it has helped but it seems to have alot of good information in it.
The book was in exellent condition and I received it in a timely manner even though I was deployed. It is a good review book, not good if you are looking to start EMT-B training. I am starting EMT-B training and this book will help me get a good foundation but it is not what the course is taught off of.
First, I bought this book simply to review the EMT materials. I've been an EMT-Basic for several years now and I just wanted a review all in one place. For that, this book is great. Also, this book seems to cover the material better (with an exception, see below) and in more depth than the other study guides. I chose this one from a stack I looked through while having lunch one day. Plus, there's a free test online. Haven't tried it yet, but I will when I'm finished.

For a basic study guide, this is really good. Really good, that is, if you already know the material. Quality control is a pretty big problem with this book - some of the diagrams are mislabeled or even the wrong diagram. The problems mostly seem to be with the diagrams, I'm guessing they didn't get the same amount of QC as the rest of the book.

If you're looking for a review and already know the material then the errors just draw attention to themselves. It's sad, though, because this book is very well organized and laid out.

On the other hand, If you are an EMT Basic student, move past this guide or wait until a next edition. It is just confusing when the text refers to a BVM and the picture is of a pocket mask, and similar issues.
I have never written a review before but some of the answers in the book are so blatantly wrong it prompted me to want to prevent anyone else from buying this review book. Its like they never took the sample questions themselves and checked the answers.

While there is a great mini review of important points for each section of EMT the all too frequent incorrect answers makes you doubt the validity of the entire book.

Even the online exam they offer is frequently incorrect! Very very poor form from McGraw Hill. Especially for paying that much money
I am very disappointed in this book. I bought it to review for an EMT refresher class, and found a few errors in the text, and with diagram identification. Compounding these errors, is that several of the answers from the comprehensive online review test ([...]) are incorrect -- making the book and the tests virtually worthless as a review tool. Not what I would expect from a large publisher like McGraw-Hill.
