I consider myself to be reasonably well informed about general first aid, but this app allows me to brush up on my knowledge, especially about conditions that I have not come across, like febrile seizures. I enjoy the quizzes, although there seems to be a bug, whereby it doesn't always record your answer accurately, so it gives you a wrong mark when you actually answered correctly.

This is a fabulous little app. There's quizzes In here. Why not have an evening of learning and quizzing. Using this app has reminded me of those little things it's easy to forget and not know you have. I've been a first aider from my Army days. I've found the quizzes bring the learning alive. If you get answers wrong be glad you did. You'll learn more by trying making mistakes. It's a great internal confidence boost.

A brilliant resource to find and check information. It even has mini quizzes, which are great for building your confidence in dealing with an injury or emergency or keeping your knowledge up to date after a first aid course.
