The Science Behind Mobile Learning:
Overloading your brain with too much information at once is a common study mistake. Research has shown that smaller, more frequent study sessions are the key to knowledge retention. In other words, taking short quizzes on the go is a much more effective means of exam preparation than reading page after page in a textbook. Apps offer the benefit of interaction, which means you’re far more likely to remember a concept you engage with rather than one you’ve only read about.
Take your EMS studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

Ratings and Reviews
I was an EMT for 3 years, a paramedic for 6 years, and taught medic school for 4. I took NR in 2008, but let my license lapse when I went back to school. I am retaking NR after being out of the field for 4 years. I think this app is okay for the most part, however certain questions give me pause and I wonder how in tune the writers are with NR. For example, a question described Cushing’s Triad as “Hypertension with reactive bradycardia and decreased respiratory effort...” “DECREASED respiratory effort” is a completely inaccurate description of a Cushing’s patient. They could have used so many different words (i.e. irregular, ataxic, Biot’s, abnormal, etc.) but the use of “decreased respiratory effort” is patently false. Because much has changed since I left the field, I am left wondering if some of my wrong answers are due to my own lack of knowledge of industry updates or incorrectly written questions. Thus, I wouldn’t advise anyone to rely solely on this app for NR prep.
The upside to this app:
The UI is great, very easy to use and intuitive. The explanations are helpful (assuming they are correct) and I like how you can keep track of your progress.
Suggestion to developers: Maybe considering adding a feature that allows users to easily report a bad question. This might allow learning opportunities for everyone involved.
This was the app I primarily used to study for NREMT-P. I passed on the first try. I’m even using this afterwards to stay sharp.
Pros - good variety of questions (there’s over 600) and the explanations are very helpful and usually they explain why each answer choice was correct/incorrect thoroughly. I studied the explanations almost as much as I did taking practice questions. There were definitely questions on actual exam that I remembered studying through this app. The question of the day reminders were more helpful than I expected. I would do random quick 10 questions any opportunity I got in preparing for the exam. This covered a lot of the A&P and pathophysiology that is heavily covered on the exam and something often forgotten to be studied during class.
Cons - inaccuracies in drug choices for some of the protocols. However, rarely was this asked on the actual NREMT exam and I had other resources to study medication protocols.
If you want to learn get this app
If you don’t have it you’re making a mistake! started using this app in the beginning of my program. It is great because you can pick topics to test on, so I would pick cardiology etc. before the class test and repeat the tests as much as I needed to. It gives great explanations for each choice. I just took the registry and passed. The registry felt easy compared to the pocket prep questions. Pocket prep covered a lot of material that my textbooks didn’t, so it really helped expand my knowledge. I told everyone in my class about it and I told other medic students I met along the way about it. I still do the daily questions even though I passed the nat reg and state tests already.
