    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Information was great I was surprised that had to buy the book. The customer service when ask is there anything need for class didn't say anything about the book. When I was sent my class info then said I had get book I sent most of money on shipping.. $ 21.00 when book was $10 dollar to get here for my class. Real thin and about 50 pages. Getting book and reading it help me in my class. But I was only one with book and new about it. The teacher asked if everyone had book. But that was last about the book. But help me to study for class.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Study Guide I'm a physical therapist and I needed to renew my CPR training so I did it online; my new employer did not accept that certification, so I signed up for the BLS for healthcare providers at the American Red Cross. This book was at the hands on part of the course. I like it because it is succinct, thorough and a great review for what I learned! This book will be a great reference and will update my library.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't seem necessary.... The booklet arrived quickly and in good condition. It contains good information that will be nice to have for reference once I finish the online part of the class. Very well laid out and succinct. However, if one doesn't need the booklet for reference, it does not seem necessary for the completion of the class. All the information needed seems to be online. It is a nice quality booklet, but it is overpriced and the shipping was extremely expensive and I live in the same city as a major RC. I guess I should have just picked one up.
