OTA Review & Study Guide
TherapyEd’s National OTA Certification Exam Review &
“Hello, my name is Heather Smith and I wanted to email you to share my success story with TherapyEd. The first three times of taking my exam and failing all three with the score of 437, I used the purple book, Pass the OT, and AOTA PDFs and none of those materials helped me to pass. I was very intimidated by the TherapyEd book but knew for certain that I would have to study it to achieve my goal. I re-took the TherapyEd course with Toni Thompson and then spent 2-3 sessions with her tutoring me one-on-one. She told me this: “It is better to prepare for a 10K and show up to find out it is a 5K than to prepare for a 5K and show up to find out it is a 10K.” That was the example she gave about TherapyEd and it stuck with me. She told me to study questions and use a highlighter to highlight important key words and use the strike out method. She told me I knew what I was doing and I knew the material and to just practice questions. So that is what I did. I went through every exam in the back of the TherapyEd book and every Rationale. I took my exam on May 3, 2019 and found out that I was Heather Lynn Smith, COTA/L on May 8, 2019. My score increased 40 points following Toni Thompson’s advice and studying questions and rationales in the back of the TherapyEd book. Toni is a jewel and a great asset to TherapyEd and I know that you all are very proud to have her as I feel very blessed to have had her as a tutor. I hope this testimonial will help someone else who is struggling to pass this exam.”– Heather Smith, COTA/L, Kershaw Health
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank TherapyEd for providing me with an amazing tutoring experience with Paula. I failed my first exam by 5 points and felt completely defeated–I thought I was never going to pass the exam and almost gave up. I then reached out to TherapyEd for guidance as I had used the book while preparing for the exam. The woman on the phone was so helpful and put me in touch with Michele Emery who hooked me up with the most amazing tutor!!!! Aside from teaching me strategies in how to break down a question and chose the best answer she also gave me confidence and was my ‘therapist’. At times I felt down and honestly quite depressed on how difficult this was for me but Paula pushed me and I really have to say I don’t think I could’ve done this without her!!!! She rooted for me until the very end! Additionally, she was extremely flexible with meeting times and responded to emails and texts promptly! She made herself always accessible to me even if it was just to chat on the phone and to lift my spirits. I feel that many people don’t know about the tutoring that TherapyEd offers and for many this can be all they need in order to be successful on the exam. I want to thank you again for providing this service and for providing the best tutor!”– S.W. – New York Institute of Technology
