One way to practice for the American Heart Association Basic Life Support, or BLS, exam is review sample questions that are available from many sources online. One example is the 10-question BLS practice test offered by National Health Care Provider Solutions. For each incorrect answer on the practice exam, the website provides the correct answer and a detailed explanation.
Texas OnSite CPR also offers a free BLS practice test that consists of 25 questions; however, this test only indicates whether answers are correct or incorrect and does not have explanations for correct answers.
Another way to practice or study for the BLS exam is to review online study guides, such as the one offered by CPR3G.com. Topics that are covered in this study guide include the adult chain of survival, adult BLS algorithm, the pediatric chain of survival and the pediatric BLS algorithm.
RedwoodCityCPRCClasses.com has a study guide that includes tutorial videos. The videos demonstrate some of the essential CPR skills taught in BLS classes and on a typical BLS exam.
Cram.com has 46 relevant flashcards for studying BLS class content as of 2015. The site also offers a 20-question test that visitors can access after reviewing the related materials.
