    Yeah Babu... I agree... that exam did have some tricky moments. I as well hope I got enough correct to pass. I noticed that reading the BLS book helped though.

    But really, med students tend to overanalyze the test. It's made for the lowest common demoninator, so if a question seems too obvious, it probably is.

    Thanks, EMT. Unfortunately I asked too late and had to take the test blind. Hopefully I'll pass, if not I'll make good use of this thread before the next one
