I just passed my CRT 4 weeks ago and my RRT written last week and I honestly don't know how I passed the CRT with an 82%. The RRT seemed a little easier and I got an 81% on that. I think the $40 practice exams helped me more on the RRT than the CRT though but they are both not easy exams to pass!!

So I passed my CRT on the first try and I will tell you how. I bought Kettering and well it stinks simply reading outline format is not going to help you if you don't have a hard understanding of the content so what next? I went to ketterings website pay for tokens and take ther online modules one token per module of 15 questions. They don't just give incorrect or correct answers you hit the play button and a gentalmen walks you through the question. What are they asking, and why the correct answer is what it is and why the others are not. I studied these modules in one sitting the day before my exam and got a 92. I am was not the best student in my program and I have extreme test anxiety. But for what's its worth 80% of my exam questions had to do with the content in those modules. Hope this helps

I have Kettering tokens for sale. I have a Kettering certificate for 30 tokens. Kettering sells it for $75 on their website. I bought it with the home study package, but I already had like 500 practice questions, so I never used my Kettering tokens. If anybody wants to buy all 30 tokens (I can only sell all 30 to one person), I will sell it for $60 only (That is a savings of $15). All I will do is just give you the certificate id, username and password in an email and you can use it. It never expires. If you do not use some of the tokens, you can sell them when you have passed all the tests. Email me at ebusiness66@yahoo.com. My screen name is my email.

I agree, Kettering is amazing! I am reading how many times it took to pass from some people, and I personally feel that you shouldn't be hard on yourself, but wonder the quality of the program you took. Students should be passing left and right, especially if your program requires attending a Kettering seminar (like mine did).

KMA in Lake Havasu City, Arizona said: HI everyone,

I need some advice. I finished my schooling in October and unfortunately due to a death in my family I am only now getting started on studying for my CRT.
A friend of mine gave me all of the textbooks from a Kettering seminar he sat for in July of this year.
Included in it is:
Practice Examination
Respiratory Therapy Review Workbook
The Simulation Workshop Lecture Notes
Challenge Examination
And the Respiratory Therapy Review Study Guide
He actually sat for the seminar and highlighted everything that I need to know in the books, crossed out pages that the instructor said were not needed, etc.

I guess my main question is: IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD STUDY?
Should I go onto the Kettering website and buy tokens still? Should I do the practice tests on NBRC website? Is that stuff overkill if I have these books?

I feel extremely rusty about the whole thing. The past two months I haven't done anything related to RT and I am really going to need as much refresher as I can get to pass any of this!!
Thanks!

You basically have everything that a ton of people have used and passed all exams very easily. Those materials are enough to use and pass all your exams.

BUT, there are some people that their study habits make them favor another program like Lindsey Jones over Kettering. But then again, both are the top best study materials for the board exams. So, you cannot go wrong with what you have.

BUT again, since you have been out for a little bit, you could use some extra things.

Email me and I can help you ace all 3 exams on your first try.

My email is ebusiness66@yahoo.com.

Do these exams on NBRC also explain why the answer is incorrect/correct?

Why do you need a study buddy? You gys would assimilate aterials differently and they may slow you down.

Email me at ebusiness66@yahoo.com and I can help give you some suggestions. Just study that way and I don't see how you will fail these exams. Millions have done it already, so can you.

I just graduated this past May. My program had us take actual NBRC exams to mimic the actual license exams. I got a 69 on the CRT final and spent two weeks studying for the actual exam and got an 87. I studied the JB review book a lot as well as the Kettering. I sat for an actual Kettering session and thought it was a great help too. I thought the Kettering workbook was also a big help as tedious as it is. I too also have the anxiety a lot of you all have, but combined with those study materials I think anyone can get through it! I did not take the RRT quite yet, but will soon.

Sucks to see some people failing. Sadly, it is a reality that if all people who graduated from a Respiratory program takes the board exam, not all will pass. That is the same for any single board exam out there. So, it is no surprise to see people failing. It is just expected that there can never be 100% pass on any public board exam for any program.

But passing these exams is really not too difficult. I believe over 80% of the people who are RRTs now and who used preparatory materials probably used either Kettering or Lindsey Jones. And that was all they used and aced all these exams. There is really no secret in passing than studying the best materials that will work for you, understanding them and passing the exam.

If anybody needs any help, feel free to email me at ebusiness66@yahoo.com. I may help.

I would suggest looking into Lindsey Jones. I studied the book for 4 months putting emphasis on the associations cards and passed 1st time. I also know someone who had Kettering failed used Lindsey Jones and passed. Great investment for CRT RRT and clinical Sims.

ILoveResp in Middleburg, Florida said: I give the credit of passing the registry exam to Gary Pershing's book called Respiratory Care Exam Review and Kettering. The book breaks down the material in the simplest way possible, there are test on the back of the book as well as online with explanations. The book cost me $ 60 but it was well worth the investment . Don't give up! Goodluck to you

I think the Persing book helped me just as much as Kettering did for passing my Boards. Persing covers things that I had on both written exams that Kettering didn't ever mention and had I not read that book as well, wouldn't have gotten it right because they were things my school didn't cover, either! GO PERSING! ;)

Kettering material is a very great study tool. I believe Kettering and Lindsey Jones are 2 of the best study materials I would recommend any student to use in preparation of their board exams.

Glad to know the Persing book helped you so much. In my class of graduates, we never really liked the Persing book. We found out that Kettering was the best for us.

But over time, I have realized that different preparatory materials work differently from different people. Some people have used kettering and failed, then switched to Lindsey Jones and said they learned more and better and so passed. While the opposite has happened to some people. They failed after studying using Lindsey Jones materials. Then switched to Kettering and they passed. I think Persing too even is part of this.

But personally, I have discovered that a every single study material has something that it explains in a way that you can understand better with one preparatory material than another.

One great tip of doing well in the board exam is buying your study materials and starting your preparation about 2 months or more before you graduate from the program. So by the time you graduate you have gone over the whole material atleast once. This helps a lot in getting ready. That is just my suggestion, but I believe everyone has their own way of studying.

UnemployedRRT in Thibodaux, Louisiana

I think instead of worrying about these tests, you guys need to actually take a look at the job market and the opportunities for an RRT.

And you'll soon see....there are none.

Your energies would be better spent looking for a new profession that is worth a damn, like nursing! The opportunities for a Nurse are STAGGERING! There are openings EVERYWHERE.

For a Respiratory Therapist? Nothing. I passed my CRT and both parts of the RRT in one shot. No retakes. Got my shiny RRT license and employers could not care less.

Your attitude demonstrates why you have remained an UnemployedRRT. No employer wants to hire a bitter RT who will spread their infection of misery among their established healthcare team members, so good luck with that.

Just passed the RRT boards. Now I would like to offer my Lindsey Jones study material to whom ever needs it to help them pass. It's a tough test and I think every little bit helps. I have the Lindsey Jones CRT & RRT Written Review Audio Seminar, Clinical Simulation Registry Review audio lecture and 8 clinical simulations, and another CD ROM with 28 more clinical simulations. Sorry, but the book and flash cards got really trashed in my bag. So if anyone is trying to pass these exams email me at abeck.rrt@gmail.com and I will send them to you. Please, only honest requests. I could sell them but would rather give them to someone who needs them.
