I would like to thank everyone at your association for putting together a well-prepared and thorough course for preparation of the National Physical Therapy Examination. Your course improved my studying skills and showed me those topics which I needed to focus my attention on. I attended your course in Pittsburgh, PA after failing my first attempt at the exam. My second time taking the test, after your course, I improved my score by 101 points to easily pass the test.
