I have just finish taking the NREMT at around 5:00 p.m. CST. When the test first started I was like wtf? What kind of questions are these? I never seen them in my life. As the test went on, I got more familiar with the questions. My test ended at around 70 questions. I think it was 70 on the dot. And Now I am scared to hell on what I got. I am totally convinced that I have failed. So I don't know...

Most people have described that shutting off around that area usually is a good sign. I am concerned that why you never seen those type of questions? I would hope your instructor attempted to write questions similar to the NREMT exam..

The best of luck on your results!

Keep in mind--the NREMT tests competency using questions which test your knowledge as to not only recall/recognition, but with regard to Judgement and application of knowledge. In the event that you are presented with two answers that would fit; you are expected to choose the option with the better outcome; given that it is within your scope. Remember; in 5 years, the medicine will have changed, but the "how" and the "why" will always stay the same.

If you think the NREMT is bad; try studying for the NCLEX; a day I both look forward too and fear all in one...

If you walked out of the room, thinking that you failed you probably didn't. If you test stops around 70 questions that's a good sign. Just remember to study everything that has to do with airway, the generic name or trade names of medicine and go over cardiac and some scenarios.

And never forget the ABCs...there were a million questions about the ABCs on my test. Understanding the order of things is really important.

When I took my test I was suprised how short it was...I was in the testing center only about an hour or so (maybe a little over an hour). It stopped after 70 Qs and I passed.

I was also suprised how short the scenario questions were. They seemed rather of fact and did not ramble too long.

The fact that the test stopped after 70 questions is usually a good indicator that you passed (or totally, totally failed).
