    Did my recert yesterday. This was the most unstressed ACLS I have done. Did great in the mega code and made a 92 on my test. This site really helped clear things up for me. Think I will come here next March as a review and then of course again at recert time in 2 yrs. Great job Jeff!

      I’m recertifying March 30 th, and I am a little nervous too about it. If you have any test taking suggestions just send them my way please. thx. Love this web site!

        If you go through all of the practice test on the website, you will have a very good review and preparation for the 50 question test.
        Use the checklist in the download library to make sure that you cover all of the content on the website.
        As far as the skills station testing goes, if you can get greater than 90% on all of the Megacode Simulator scenarios and do well going through the megacode series videos, you will do very well in the skills station.

        Kind regards,

        I’m a repeat reviewer here on your ACLS site and love it! I recertify next year for PALS. Could you possibly move your goal for getting a PALS site done sooner? :)
        Thanks again for the great work!

    I just passed in Dearborn, MI. With a 47/50 on written. I was thankful to review a bit of almost all the site. It was very informative. In our testing they did not really focus on rhythm identification, just grouped conditions with VT/VF, FAST (tach) or SLOW (brad) and made it simple by grouping as: Unstable or stable hemo for tach… and it came down to majority of BLS questions on the exam, and some odd ball ACLS (ex. CT being down at one hospital, or values) Oddly enough I was so anxious to study and memorize the EKG strips, they really turned out to be more complicated than necessary. However, I will be back for retest in 2 years! I am looking forward to the 2015 revision.
