    I passed my ACLS last April 9th! I didnt use the ACLS book that was requiredin the class, this site is very sufficient so just an advice dont waste your money buying the book coz i find this site easier to understand. I had been an aoar nurse since 2005 and i never really understand rhythmn and i was so scared to take the ACLS. Im so happy somebody told me about this website. Im so happy!

    I used this site for the first time in December, and passed the written and the stations with no stress and with flying colours. More importantly, doing the work was very engaging and a lot of fun. (I can’t wait until it’s time to do my ACLS again!) I’m recommending this resource to everyone I know.
    I think Fred’s idea of an ECG quiz would be an excellent addition. Good luck with developing that!

      Thanks for the feedback and comments. I am so glad that the site has been helpful for you. I am already working on the ecg quiz section. I hope to have some up in the next 6 months or so.

      Thanks again,
      Kind regards,

    This is the second ACLS cycle that I used your web site to study. Needless to say, I passed without a problem! I have recommended this site to everyone taking the exam. Besides a great review it gives ample practice and is a wonderful confidence builder. The only thing I would ask you is to consider adding a quiz section for random EKG interpretation.
    Thanks again


    • says

      That is a great idea about adding a quiz section for EKG interpretation. I definitely will begin work on this. It may take 4-6 months to develop this section, but think this would be very helpful for students. Thank you for the suggestion.
      Kind regards,

  5. ACLSbruce says

    Thank you so much for creating such an outstanding website. I spent 90% of my study time on this site, the rest with the AHA site and I aced the exam. The quizzes and videos are excellent and I went into the class feeling very confident. I have already recommended your site to other RN’s who are preparing to take their ACLS certification and I will continue to do so going forward. Many thanks again,

    Dear Jeff,

    Thanks for this website. I had four days to study and prepare. I was ready and passed the test witha 92% and megacode went smoothly. I am old ICU nurse from 20 years ago, but I try to renew my ACLS every two years. Due to life circumstances I was unable to renew last year and had actually rescheduled four times since 4/2014. I could not reschedule one more time, so I went for it.

  7. Diane_Buendia says

    Such an Amazing site. I did my ACLS Renewal Course Yesterday. I can say that I did great with the help of your 2 week membership. I am more confident on the Mega Code Scenarios and passed my Exam with flying colors.
    See you in 2 years. Keep up the Good Work on your Site.
    Thanks a lot!

      I do not have any PALS content at this time. I have looked around for something I can recommend, but I cannot find anything worth recommending.
      Your best resource at this time will be the AHA PALS provider manual.
      Kind regards,

  8. docro10 says

    Thanks Jeff, I have never been so prepared for acls Was able to answer questions, got through my mega code without problems. And of course passed my exam. Will definitely be using this web site again, will recommend it to others

  9. Debbie1 says

    Jeff, Thank you so much for this website! It is the reason I have now passed ACLS for the second time with flying colors! It has really helped me to understand and learn this information. I needed to take ACLS for the first time after 34 yrs of Nursing and Never having seen a Code, not to mention real studying! This site provides a fun way to study and retain the information . I recommend it to all my colleagues now. Thank you so much for taking such a stressful task and making it bearable. I even admit to enjoying it on this second time around! That’s hard to admit. :). Thank you!

    I wanted to say thank you for the amazing site. I used to cry when I was renewing my ACLS. This is the second time I have utilized your site for my renewal studying. And the second time I have flown through the renewal process. Without this site I am not sure I would still be working in an environment that required me to have it.

    Thanks again I will be back in 2 years.

  13. rioboy10 says

    Just wanted to say a big “Thank You” for such a great website you have. Because of your website, I successfully passed ACLS today with flying colors! My megacode scenarios were flawless and I received a 94% on my written exam. I am a Licensed Paramedic, but have been away from the field for 8 years and am now preparing to go back in. ACLS changed tremendously since the last time I took it in 2005. I couldn’t have passed today if it wasn’t for your megacode scenarios, practice exams, and knowledge base. Thank You again for everything and I will definitely be back in two years to study from your website again.

    Thank you so much for setting up this website; I only stumbled upon it on Saturday as I was looking for a simplified web site for interpreting ECG’s, particularly for ACLS. I got even more from this site; for the first time in my career, I truly understand ECG’s and can now recognize basic rhythms. I did nothing but study the videos and information given here for the next 3 days, then followed up with the quizes and megacode scenarios. Because of this, I am proud to say I passed the ACLS course today with 94 ! I am recommending this site to anyone interesting in obtaining their ACLS. Thank you so much!

      The 2010 guidelines are actually the 2010-2015 guidelines. AHA meets every 5 years to revise the ACLS guidelines. They will meet in late 2015 and then the new guidelines will be released early to mid-2016. Everything on the site is in accordance with the 2010-2015 AHA ACLS Guidelines.

      Kind regards,

  15. DKocinski says

    Passed my ACLS today. It was the most prepared I have ever been. First time I did not dread The Megacode. Great Site, Thanks so much!

    Just completed my ACLS yesterday and smashed it thanks to the info on your website. I cannot thank you enough for how well this website prepared me for the course. If you are planning on expanding your business, PALS is the next logical step, plus I have it soon.

    This is the first time I have used your website to study for my ACLS recertification. All I can say is
    WOW! I passed my ACLS yesterday with flying colors! I had all of the answers in my head thanks
    to your study guide and mega code practices! I only missed one on the written test and that was
    because I read the question wrong! I will tell all of my friends about your site and hope they are
    as smart as I was to sign up for a 2 week membership before taking ACLS. I will be back in 2017!
    Thanks again !
