Completely updated to reflect the 2015 NBRC TMC and CSE exams, Comprehensive Respiratory Therapy Exam Preparation Guide, Third Edition is an extensive study guide for respiratory therapy students and who are preparing to take the exam. This up-to-date, comprehensive resource provides a thorough overview of all content covered on the exam, while also providing students with test taking strategies and tips.
