    I was wondering if anyone knows of a good EKG reading workbook to help practice reading EKGs. I am looking for something with a nice number of practice EKG tracings with solutions. Thanks.

    One book I used when I was in paramedic school was Rapid Interpretation of EKG's 6th edition by Dale Dubin. It is very easy and fast reading.

    I know. Every one gets that book but I am looking for a "workbook." Something like a whoel book of math problems but with EKG tracing instead.

    I like this one:
    "The Only EKG Book You'll Ever Need" by Malcolm S. Thaler.

    Has a whole section in the back with like 200 strips that you can interpret.

    Quinn recommended this book:

    12-Lead ECG The Art of Interpretation


    It has many ECG's to read along with good instruction. It also is set up so that you can use it at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level. I really like this book.

    I had one and it was one I've never seen before. Really weird looking. I clicked a choice and moved on.

    Here's a good website I used to quiz myself when I was studying for ACLS. I thought it was really helpful. It may not be worth your time though. It took me about 5 hours to learn how to figure them out and I only had one question on step 1. Good luck! :)

    Captain Hook,

    Check out:

    The Complete Guide to EKGs (by O'Keefe)

    and

    ECGS for the Emergency Physician (by Mattu et al.)

    These two books are for EKG reading practice and are just pages of different EKG's with the explanations and offical reads listed in the back. They assume that you have already read a book like Dubin's or "The Only EKG Book that You'll Ever Need" and have the basic knowledge.
