Cheat Sheets - at the end of each rhythm section (ex. atrial arrhythmias) there would be a 1-page summary sheet of the key features to look for in each rhythm. I used these to help me identify the rhythms in the following pages of practice strips.
Rhythm Cards - these are like tear-out flashcards. Ironically I had planned to make some to help me remember the particulars of each rhythm, but this book did it for me! Nice formatting, very thorough.
Practice Strips - anyone who is working to learn ECGs knows that you can learn a rhythm, but none of the practice/test strips look like the "example" model you are shown. What I like in this book is that at the end of each section (atrial arrhythmias, ventricular arrhythmias, junctional arrhythmias...) each chapter has its own collection of 100 practice strips. So you take the 1-page cheat sheet for the section/chapter you are working in, and you know that the rhythms in the practice section will be one of those on the sheet. It takes away all the guessing of if the rhythm might be some other kind and it makes the study much more focused. The answers are easy to find in the back of the book and include all the analysis points of the strip to back up and strengthen your skills.
I used this book for a few days and got a 98% on my unit's ECG test. The only one I missed was because I circled the wrong answer (even though I knew the correct rhythm). Now I feel fairly confident that I can recognize rhythms in all shapes and sizes! This book was truly a significant part in bringing me to that level of understanding.
FYI, there are also the basic intro to strips and wave forms in the book. It is a full-service ECG book - I just didn't cover all of that (I focused on my favorite, most useful parts). After looking at a bunch of other ECG books, this was THE ONE.
