I saw some past threads on NARM preparation, but they were dated.  It seems that there is no practice test for the NARM other than this:  http://www.mo-media.com/midwives/ .  Anyone have any advice if this is worth the cost?  I was going through a program but am now going through the PEP process, due to moving out of the country in the Fall.  I want to make sure I am prepared.  I apprentice at a high volume birth center with two CNM's so I know a lot of holistic, but I know a lot more medical and pharamceutical so I want to be prepared for the exam.  Thanks!

Looks sketchy. The wording is all... "off"

Well, the company has an A+ rating from the BBB, so I might take a chance on the $50 but I think the value would probably depend on how you learn best.

It wasn't worth it. I got it from a friend and it was just not that useful.

there is a new NARM practice test, I purchased it ($25 for PDF but you can also spend more for the paper copy.) It helped me, and I am glad I did it...however it was ALOT easier then the actual NARM exam (which I took a few days ago). The practice test is written by a very experienced midwife. Her website is http://midwivesempower.com/books.asp


Blessings!
