Sol PASSED his NPTE!
Sol enrolled into May 2012 Therapy Exam Prep’s 3 month program. Here’s his story about his experience with TEP.
“Firstly, I must admit I wouldn’t have passed the NPTE without Christ’s help. I had a break of almost 12 years after my education. I spent about 4 months of intense preparation for the NPTE. After failing my first attempt by 2%, I was devastated. I realized that there was something seriously wrong in my preparation. Although many suggested to take the exam as early as possible (content still fresh in the mind), I decided to give myself atleast 6 months for active preparation. Here are some measures I took, if it can be useful to others in the NPTE journey.
After joining TEP, I realized there were many errors in my previous preparation. I had earlier visualized the question at face value, not knowing how to pick up key words and analyse the stem. TEP taught me to analyse the question better, analyze my scores after each exam, which revealed the areas that needed attention.
I made a 6 month plan, spent close to 6-7 hrs each day in active preparation. Rather than going book by book, I found its better to go topic by topic. You may complete less topics each day, but i was able to remember better. I typed the topic in the ‘keyword’ search on TEP forum & read the discussions related to the topic, posting & answering related questions.
The nutritional tips were helpful. Again, rather than being obsessive in studies, I took time for Physical exercise, household chores & movie nights.
I spent the last 2 months doing questions and analyzing the rationale. I was exposed to several concepts that were not available in textbooks.
As Miye often states, remain Positive. My wife made numerous flash cards & affixed it all over the house. Read it aloud & affirm what you read. Believe me, it helps!
My best wishes to those who are in the journey. IT IS POSSIBLE! You will do it!”
