For half of the test you will be able to use a calculator. It is important that you know how to use all of the helpful functions of this calculator in order to get the full benefit from it. If you don't know to use fractions on the calculator, for example, you are depriving yourself of an advantage that the test administrators are making available to you.
The calculator is a scientific calculator, specifically a Casio fx-260, and has many more features than a standard calculator. You don't need to know how to use all of these features, but you should know how to use the calculator for fractions, exponents, square roots and trigonometric functions, as well as, of course, the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
The best way to get familiar with the calculator is by using it while you are preparing for the GED. Whenever you review a topic as you are studying, such as reducing fractions, make sure you can complete operations on your calculator as well as by hand. Also, when you take a practice GED math test, use the calculator on the portion of the test that permits calculator use.
Know When to Use Formulas
Throughout the test you will have access to a sheet of paper that details all of the formulas that will be useful to you in solving GED math problems. Be careful not to use this as a crutch, however. The sheet doesn't tell you which types of problems to use each formula on, which is key. To know this you need to study the mathematical concepts and by the time you understand them all you will probably have the formulas memorized anyways.
Practice Good Time Management
You will have 45 minutes to complete each part of the GED math test, which is 90 minutes total. Typically, most EMTs are certified to one of five levels that are administered by NREMT, the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. The five NREMT certifications are: First Responder, EMT-Basic, EMT-Intermediate/85, EMT-Intermediate/99 and Paramedic. There are also state by state levels and licensure requirements that may differ from the NREMT's certifications.
The NREMT maintains multiple EMT certification levels that represent a ladder of increasing knowledge skills and abilities for an EMS professional. The different NREMT certification levels are summarized below:
First Responder - Entry level EMS services. Provides basic first response first aid and patient management. Almost all police and fire agencies require their employees to be first responders.
EMT-Basic (EMT-B) - This certification level provides basic life support.
Intermediate/85 (EMT-I) - NREMT certification level based on the 1985 EMT-Intermediate National Standard Curriculum.
Intermediate/99 - (EMT-I) - NREMT certification level based on the 1999 EMT-Intermediate National Standard Curriculum.
Paramedic - (EMT-P) - This is the highest level of EMT certification supported by the NREMT. Paramedics can administer a wide range of medication, provide advanced life support, and perform advanced surgical and electrical therapies.
To do well on the EMT Test, it is important that you study smart - not hard!
