    • Complexity level codes (recall, application, and analysis) help you prepare for questions in the way that is most appropriate (e.g., memorization for recall or synthesis for analysis).
    • NBRC content outline coding provides a code for each topic so you can be sure that you have covered every topic that might appear on the exam.
    • CRT and RRT level codes speed your review by identifying the individual topics for the CRT and RRT exams, as well as topics for both.
    • One text now covers both the entry and advanced levels of Respiratory Therapists credentialing exams, so you need only one book to prepare for CRT and RRT credentials.
