Give students realistic National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC) Exam experience to help eliminate exam day surprises! The Comprehensive Respiratory Therapist's Exam Review, 7th Edition covers every topic listed on the 2020 NBRC Detailed Content Outline — and presents every item listed as testable on the Therapist Multiple Choice (TMC) Exam and Clinical Simulation Exam (CSE). It provides study hints, in-depth content review, and self-assessment questions with rationales so students retain more information. Two practice exams on an accompanying Evolve website prepare students and practicing respiratory therapists for the TMC Exam. In addition, twenty-two updated practice clinical simulation scenarios on Evolve offer invaluable CSE prep.

    • Updated content reflects 2020 NBRC Detailed Content Outline and examination matrix so that you know exactly what to expect on the exams and can review each of the areas covered on the matrix.
    • Exam Hints point out commonly tested items to help you determine what to study, how to plan your time, and improve test-taking skills.
    • Special NBRC coding of topics corresponds to every topic covered on the NBRC Detailed Content Outline (DCO) so that you know exactly what to expect on the exams and can easily review each of the areas covered on the DCO.
    • Self-study questions at the end of each chapter include an answer key with rationales to help you analyze areas of strengths and weaknesses in content learned. Additional analysis-type questions account for changes in the testing matrix.
    • Rationales for each question provide feedback for correct and incorrect answers to help you understand why an answer is correct or incorrect and retain information better.
    • Difficulty level codes (recall, application, analysis) for each question included with each NBRC topic to help you prepare for questions in a way that is most appropriate for that type of question (e.g., memorization for recall or synthesis for analysis).
    • Twenty-two clinical simulations align in content and structure with the new 2020 NBRC Clinical Simulation Exam in both study mode and exam mode. In the untimed study mode you can select each scenario individually and choose to receive detailed feedback on the items that were selected, or on all possible items, upon completion. In the exam mode you take all 22 scenarios with a 4-hour time limit and receive feedback after completion. The clinical simulations can be found on the secured Evolve website and accessed by a pin code (access code in book). The software mimics that used on the actual NBRC CSE.
    • Two 160-question versions of the Therapist Multiple Choice (TMC) Exam align in content and structure with the new 2020 NBRC TMC Exam. The untimed study (pretest) version provides immediate feedback on each question with a rationale about the correct and incorrect answers. The timed exam (posttest) version has a 3-hour limit. Feedback, including the correct answer and a rationale for the correct and the incorrect answers, is provided on each question upon completion. Final scores are given in the pretest and posttest versions, and the software for both versions mimics that used on the actual NBRC TMC Exam. The question sequence mixes with each repeated attempt, giving you a unique exam experience each time. This content can be found on the secured Evolve website and accessed by a pin code (access code in book).
    • NEW! Every item listed as testable on the 2020 National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) Therapist Multiple Choice (TMC) Exam and Clinical Simulation Exam (CSE) presented to get you exam-ready.
    • UPDATED! Two TMC practice exams on Evolve.
