[prMac.com] Annapolis, Maryland - Emergencies are a fact of life. But prepping for the Emergency Technician Exam should not be one of them. Leading publisher, Barron's, and mobile educational app developer, gWhiz LLC, have partnered to create an innovative and eminently portable learning tool for would-be emergency medical technicians nationwide. Their latest collaboration, Barron's EMT Exam Review, is an educational mobile app like no other on the market today. It allows candidates preparing for the Emergency Medical Technician exam to study on the go and at their own pace.
Based on the latest material, Barron's EMT Exam Review is a comprehensive learning tool that enables users to customize their study plan. The app includes two question types - on-the-scene scenarios in flash card format and multiple-choice questions with detailed answers available in quiz or browse mode. Organized into 26 highly relevant medical topics, users can easily identify problem areas and focus their review where they need it most.
"We believe in the power of mobile to redefine the learning landscape, making education not only more accessible but, ultimately, more efficient." remarks Kevin Reville, gWhiz founder. "With our new Barron's EMT Exam Review educational mobile app, users are able to optimize their study schedule by taking the app with them wherever they go."
Barron's EMT Exam Review is now available in iTunes. Initial download of the app delivers one complimentary multiple choice question in all 26 medical topics and 5 on-the-scene scenarios. By purchasing the expansion pack in the app for $9.99, users will have access to over 70 on-the-scene flash card scenarios and 426 multiple-choice questions with answer explanations. Users can track their progress using the detailed analytics available within the app including exam history, strength by topic, and overall progress, and tailor their study schedule to best suit their needs.
