Who Is Therapy Team?

Therapy Team Exam Review is the only Comprehensive NPTE/NPTAE Review with over 17 years experience helping NPTE/NPTAE repeaters pass the next time.  If it is your second or tenth time we can help you.


Our Method of NPTE/NPTAE preparation

We base our method around authentic assessments that are derived from clinical situations, in much the same way as the NPTE questions.  By using this method, we cover the full spectrum on the content on the NPTE.  We feel this method, rather than studying practice questions best allows you to see your deficits both in knowledge and the ability to apply your knowledge.  Our over 90% pass rate for students repeating the NPTE/NPTAE in 2013, which is better than the first time US educated pass rate, proves our method works and is worth the commitment.

This approach will allow you to become more comfortable applying what you know to both assess the situation presented in the question and formulate a response taking into account all the factors as if you were the therapist.

In our courses you will learn how to better apply your knowledge to make the best decisions in the exam environment. There are many benefits to this method as it will give you feedback improve your abilities to do what the exam is asking you do.


Updated January 10, 2013:  The results are in!!!  For our students who took their NPTE/NPTAE during 2013 our pass rate was 92%. 


1. This number was determined using as a failure rate the number of students who requested a free repeat course after failing a subsequent exam.  This might not be an accurate number if someone gave up and never called us after another failure, but we think we are pretty close.

2. A high pass rate does not mean YOU will pass.

3. Over 80% of our students in 2013 were recent graduates of CAPTE approved programs and not internationally educated.

4. Unlike other courses or review materials, we do not promise to make the NPTE/NPTAE simple, easy, or fun.  Under our guidance, you will work hard in our courses addressing common issues that prevent otherwise prepared PT/PTA graduates from passing.

So, if you are tired of taking your exam again and again, rather than being a PT or PTA, and are ready to pass, what are you waiting for?    Call or register online today.


What we know about the Current NPTE/NPTAE Exams.

After a year with the current content outlines and over 17 years experience of preparing students for both the NPTE/NPTAE and talking to them afterwards about their overall exam experience and examining their Role Feedback reports, we believe that the current versions of the NPTE and NPTAE are the hardest ever.

In 2013, just knowing everything was not enough to pass.

In 2013 we saw low scores from CAPTE DPT graduates in content domains where we rarely saw low scores previously.

Because we are not part of a large entity we had the ability to adjust our materials to address these issues as soon as we saw patterns as early as last summer.   We feel this is helping our current students be better prepared with every exam.

We also believe that fixed date testing and testing centers with proctors that are trained to get concerned if you start sneezing too much make the test environment more intimidating and scary than in the past.  We offer recommendations how to deal with this stressful environment.  We cannot cure test anxiety, but knowing what common test recommendations that worked perfectly fine in school are prohibited activities during the NPTE/NPTAE can help you be prepared for the unexpected during your exam.

Despite the challenges, the experienced instructors at Therapy Team have studied all available information about the new exam forms and attended more FSBPT conferences than any other review company.   You get what you pay for in life isn’t it now time to invest in the most effective NPTE/NPTAE review courses available?


Who Are Our Students?

We have been providing this course since 1996 and have helped over 12,000 physical therapy students, almost all repeating the NPTE, get their licenses.   If you are looking at this page we know who you are:

  • You are a recent graduate from a CAPTE approved PT or PTA program
  • You are an excellent student
  • You have taken the NPTE or NPTAE from 1 -12 times, average 2.3 attempts.
  • You are not lazy.
  • You study.  Excuse me, you study A LOT.
  • You have taken from one to two other NPTE or NPTAE review courses that failed your, purchased every review book and flash card set you, your parents, family and friends could find on Amazon that promised NPTE/NPTAE success and used then diligently.

And despite all this money, months and maybe even a year or more of time and significant effort, all of your classmates have their license and are earning great money and you…….


Let’s work together to change that!!


Why you NEED this course before your next attempt

Therapy Team’s approach is different.  We do not focus on practice questions.  We often have students in class who achieved their highest score on their first attempt rather than their second or third attempt. Why?  All thought the way to pass was to study the same material the second or third time, only harder,  This often meant more practice questions and fact memorization rather than changing their approach to comprehending the material to match the format of the exam.

That is why Therapy Team utilizes a mostly project based approach that changes your thinking from that of a physical therapy student seeking the “right” answer to one of a practicing therapist or assistant who understands the complexity of a patient and makes the best decision on any questions presented on the NPTE or NPTAE.   We believe this approach will best prepare you for a practice oriented, best answer multiple choice examination.

Unlike what you have done before, Therapy Team has a track record of individuals who had no idea what they were doing wrong, who are now successful practicing Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants because together, we worked on changing their approach to the exam material as well as their tactics for the day of the exam.
