The Most Effective Web & Mobile NBRC TMC Exam Study Guide

Are you planning to take a Respiratory Therapy exam in the near future? You've come to the right place! Brainscape is proud to partner with Jones & Bartlett Learning to produce a comprehensive set of adaptive digital flashcards aligned to their Comprehensive Respiratory Therapy Exam Preparation Guide, Third Edition.

This complete online and mobile resource was created by the original guide's authors, Craig Scanlan and Albert Heuer, along with JBL's team of content experts and editors. The content has been organized in a way that is especially compatible with Brainscape's scientifically optimized learning system.

Why It Works

Brainscape PERSONALIZES the timing of each flashcard repetition, using proven cognitive science. Unlike clunky traditional flashcards and other boring eLearning software, Brainscape's proprietary learning algorithm called Confidence-Based repetition (CBR) spaces the repetition of each bite-sized concept based on how well you say you know each one.

In other words, we optimize the repetition of flashcards in exactly the right interval for YOUR brain.

Research shows that this type of automated, adaptive study system can help you learn over TWICE as fast, and remember information for longer, than traditional learning systems.

With This Product, You Get:

  • An extensive study guide for respiratory therapy students and who are preparing to take the NBRC TMC exam

  • Over 500 flashcards, neatly divided into decks for topic areas such as Patient Data Evaluation and Recommendations; Troubleshooting and Quality Control of Equipment; and Infection Control, and Initiation and Modification of Interventions

  • Concepts that closely reflect the types of questions you'll see on the NBRC TMC exam

  • Detailed feedback and question rationales for all difficult concepts

  • Brainscape's scientifically proven learning system
