Great course and materials. Be sure you get the cards and CD, as were included with this book. They are essential. If you plan to renew your PALS on line you NEED this book!
The American Heart Association Pediatric Advanced Lifesaving (PALS) Providers Manual was the key to success in the PALS course. If you read the text and do the practice questions on the CD before the beginning of the course you should have no problem passing the course and getting certified. The farther in advance you read the more likely you are to be prepared for the 12 case scenarios you will have to practice in the course. The assessment checklist is also the same one that course instructors will use to assess your achievement on the selected case scenarios. Pocketbooks are great tools to keep as reference or even on hand if you are in a specialty where advanced lifesaving is common (i.e. emergency room, intensive care, etc...) I would recommend this manual to all those taking a PALS course (American Heart Association requires it too) and I predict the updated 2011 version will be just as concise if not better.
Excellent condition, great price, and super fast shipping! This book is well written and organized, which makes it easy to learn. DVD with visual materials is very helpful as well.
Helpful to pass the PALS exams. Everyone that I asked recommend this book. It was a great buy and received this book quickly.
