    If you have a computer, I'd recommend the CD BASIC DYSRHYTHMIAS INTERACTIVE! by MosbyJems ISBN 0-323-01478-X www.elsevierhealth.com This is an awesome CD. You pick your own skill level. Even teaches about axis deviations, old MI, non-Qwave MIs in a down to earth fashion. It's even fun.

    If you want a CD that you can match on one screen one rhythm to another like the blocks, junctionals etc, I recommend LEARNING ARRHYTHMIA RECOGNITION (The Arrhythmia Teaching System) Catalog number: 717-9010 Cardionics, Inc. 910 Bay Star Blvd Webster, TX 77598 USA 1-800-364-5901 or email: keithj@cardionics.com www.cardionics.com (This CD is pricey and not as exciting as the BASIC DYSRHYTHMIAS CD but is more simplified). Both go into the basics and have quizes.

    For books, I like ECGs MADE EASY by Barbara Aehlert and published by Mosby. ISBN #999762788-1. She also authored ACLS Quick Review Study Guide. ISBN 0-323-00892-5

    If you want practice reading strips, I recommend ECG WORKOUT Exercises in Arrhythmia Interpretation by Jane Huff, RN, CCRN and published by Lippincott. ISBN # 0-7817-3192-5

    Hope this helps. By the way, where is your home town?

    The one above is an CEU course
    http://www.saminc.com/ecg/

    This one you have the register for by emailing the instructor, but the course is a good step by step, with great graphic, and easy to understand instruction.

    This a CEU site also, but you can review the material and in order to get the credits, you would need to pay a fee.

    Lots of information here at the above site. Good Luck!
