Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
About Therapy Exam Prep (TEP)
- Does TEP help PTAs prepare for the board exam?
Yes, TEP helps both PTs and PTAs prepare for the NPTE and NPTAE.
- What books are required?
TEP utilizes both TherapyEd’s and Scorebuilders study guides for their practice exams. You’ll be expected to have at least one of the latest study guides to take a practice exam on the first day. The study guides should be 2013 to present as they correlate with the current NPTE blueprint format.
No other textbooks or study guides are required or recommended. TEP forums and online materials will supplement during your preparation.
- Does TEP provide course work?
TEP provides over 100 clinical assignments after each webinar and additional assignments to supplement different topic areas. The assignments are there to help you study smarter and not harder. Each assignment is given to help you through an evaluation and how you can apply the knowledge in the clinic. TEP’s assignments have been shown to improve clinical thinking skills and how they can be related to the actual NPTE. The materials are accessible while in the course or extra forum support subscription. TEP changes the material with each session and therefore no two are the same. The materials are accessible when enrolled.
- Will TEP’s course benefit me?
Yes, TEP can benefit you when you want to pass the NPTE. All of TEP’s tips, techniques and strategies have worked successfully over the past decade. It’s up to you to implement them successfully with guidance. TEP has been successful in helping both first timers and repeaters prepare for the board exam. How successful you are will depend on how active you are, how well you follow the course and how well you implement the strategies that are provided.
- How can I be helped after failing the exam?
Whether you didn’t pass the first time or if you have tried already multiple times to take the NPTE/NPTAE, know that you’re not alone. TEP was designed to help all participants that are preparing for the board exam. The first two weeks of TEP’s course is designed to address areas that can help you overcome any fears, anxiety and being overwhelmed. TEP provides strategies to help build up your confidence and scores. One key to being successful is being positive, open minded and active while following the techniques provided. TEP encourages a proactive preparation approach to give you a successful passage. Many participants self-confidence has risen even in the first week. Improvements on scores, studying and confidence are shown with active participation and following the course with the guidance from TEP’s team.
- What is the passing rate?
Passing rate is 95% based on individuals that are fully active and complete the course.
- Do you provide support after 3 months?
Yes, TEP provides participants an option for extra forum support until the date of the exam. This is a monthly subscription of $59. This does not include the on demand videos once the course ends. Many take advantage of this once the course ends to be able to ask and answer questions as well as to complete the assignments that are provided by TEP. This also allows for participants extra guidance by TEP’s team when proactive on their preparation.
