July NPTE Success After 2nd Attempt

Firstly, I would like to thank Miye and her entire team of TEP (especially Karen) for all the guidance and support throughout the program. Overall my TEP journey for the NPTE was awesome and I enjoyed the experience a lot. I learned lots of new things while in the program. It was a great learning experience. I have passed the July 21st NPTE with a scale score of 634 on my second attempt. After failing the NPTE in January, I was disappointed because I had prepared a lot for the physical therapy board exam. After joining TEP, I realized that my clinical knowledge was not ...

Passing the July NPTE on the First Attempt

TEP broke the whole NPTE exam down for me into pieces. They taught me how to read the NPTE question, how to understand it, how to eliminate and choose the correct answer. They even broke the NPTE studying part of it down into videos and live webinars. TEP also taught me what topics to focus on depending on my weaknesses. Before joining TEP, I was just reading books like everybody does, too overwhelmed with the amount to study, the number of books and resources! TEP's program taught me how to study smarter. Not only was I becoming more organized and positive but also ...

Overcoming my fears – How I passed the July NPTE

Hi I’m Ellen and TEP was recommended to me by a fellow alumnus of my university and I am very glad I took her advice and enrolled. Finding out I passed after the fourth attempt felt AMAZING and I owe a lot of thanks to TEP! After two failed attempts at passing the NPTE, I was at a loss as to what I should do but I knew that I needed to change my approach to studying. I contacted Miye and we discussed my previous attempts and what TEP could offer me and I immediately enrolled in January 2015. The program ended just before I took the NPTE in April, which resulted in ...

PT Exam Passed – July NPTE

First, I want to THANK YOU, TEP! I took my NPTE boards last week, July 21, and found out I passed this week! After two failed NPTE attempts, I knew it wasn't my knowledge base (as I felt confident that I could recite you the O'Sullivan book), but rather my test taking abilities and anxiety. I was able to remain calm throughout this whole process and this time felt differently. I didn't syke myself out, I remained confident and was able to succeed! I think one of the important, if not the most important, thing I learned was reading the question from the bottom up. I ...

Passed the NPTE on my 2nd Attempt

I’m Rakhi Shivani and I have been working the past 5 years as a physiotherapist after completing my Master's in Physical Therapy in India. On my first attempt with the NPTE, I studied academically like most of us do without realizing that this exam indeed is clinically based and is well beyond our textbooks. And as it would be, I failed to clear the exam on my first attempt. It was quite disheartening as I had never failed in any of my exams throughout my academics. I was then told about TEP by a friend who had enrolled for the same and cleared her exam with a good ...

Passed PTA Exam

Rachael Huffman, PTA wanted to share her experience with Therapy Exam Prep's program: I took the TEP course as recommended by my program PTA chairman. I was given Miye’s contact information and I was able to get a seat within the course. This course outlines everything Physical Therapy related and although it is mostly geared towards the DPT I did anyway and I still found it to be very beneficial. Obviously, there are things that PTAs are unable to do so you learn your role as a PTA but the overall information both the DPT and PTA should know or have an idea about. ...
