Who Is Therapy Team?
Therapy Team Exam Review is the only Comprehensive NPTE/NPTAE Review with over 18 years experience helping NPTE/NPTAE graduates pass the next time. If it is your first or sixth time we have a NPTE or NPTAE Review course to meet your needs.
Note: After January 1, 2016, there will be a lifetime limit of 6 attempts at the NPTE or NPTAE. Only two, if the FSBPT feels you have an unusually low score. The message is DO NOT WASTE ATTEMPTS.
Why Our Method of NPTE/NPTAE preparation is Unique.
Our courses have been developed using authentic assessments that are derived from clinical situations, just like the questions of the NPTE/NPTAE. Our full time job is to study how these exams are developed and give you the best practice for answer any question on all content areas of your exam. We do not have part time instructors, all our instructors are full time, devoted to your success.
Other courses tell you passing is merely reviewing content and studying practice questions. We disagree, our method allows you to see your deficits both in knowledge and the ability to apply your knowledge. Our over 89% pass rate for students repeating the NPTE/NPTAE in 2014, proves our method works and is worth the commitment. For first time exam takers it is over 95%, higher than any other review course.
Our approach is designed to help you 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.
What we know about the Current NPTE/NPTAE Exams and the Testing Environment.
After over two years with the current content outlines and over 18 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 2014, just knowing everything was not enough to pass. Students can memorize better than ever, but that is not how you pass.
Historically we saw a high score/lower score pattern. So the first test was say 590, the second test 520. In 2014 we saw fewer students with that pattern and many more US educated DPT’s stuck in the 585-595 range for 3 or 4 test administrations.
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?
Why you NEED a Therapy Team course before your next attempt
Therapy Team’s approach is different. We do not focus on practice questions or memorizing content. You did that in school and we assume you have the knowledge to pass. Why: after 18 years and over 20,000 students we can count on one maybe two hands the number of students who came to our class without the required physical therapy knowledge to pass the NPTE or NPTAE.
Using your existing knowledge we utilize 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 thousands of PT and PTA graduates who had no idea what they were doing wrong and why they were not passing. Almost all 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.
