TherapyEd's PTA Exam Prep Course

Focused on active learning and developing critical reasoning skills, our exam prep courses are taught by superior instructors with years of experience helping students. They use their collective knowledge and diverse experience to help students prepare and do their best on exam day. Each course starts with an overview of the exam to make sure students fully understand the nature and challenges of the high-stakes NPTE. Then instructors work through questions, in a guided learning format, to develop students' critical reasoning skills. Breaking down and analyzing questions to understand how best to answer them on the real exam is at the heart of the TherapyEd course.

Making this an engaging and interesting learning experience is what makes our instructors the best in the profession. Utilizing their own years of practical and teaching experience, as well as interactive clickers and the TherapyEd Course Manual--a 302 page text given out as part of the course--the instructors are the reason almost everyone who takes the course rates it as "Excellent" or "Above Average."  In student reviews of the course the comment made most often is "I wish this instructor taught at my school."    

TherapyEd's PTA Examination Review & Study Guide by O'Sullivan and Siegelman, edited by Karen Ryan

TherapyEd's Review & Study Guide has been the best-selling guide for over 15 years.  Built on the foundation of distinguished educators Drs. Susan O'Sullivan and Raymond Siegelman, and revised and updated by noted PTA educator Karen Ryan, the text is up-to-date for the PTA exam. Combining comprehensive content review in a clear and concise outline format, along with engaging, full-color graphics, the guide gives students the ability to review everything they need to know to succeed on the PTA exam. Most importantly, the guide also comes with 3 complete practice exams to help students understand their individual strengths and weaknesses. These exams--a total of 450 questions--are rigorous and challenging to make sure students are ready for anything that may appear on the NPTE. The questions are designed to match, or even slightly exceed, the level of difficulty and complexity found on the real exam. This makes sure students who prepare with TherapyEd are fully ready to succeed on the high-stakes NPTE.

What makes TherapyEd's Review & Study Guide the best in the profession is it's focus on content excellence. Dr. O'Sullivan is the co-author of the foundational Physical Therapy text "Physical Rehabilitation" and is recognized as a leader in the profession. Dr. Siegelman has been helping students pass the exam for almost 30 years and provides a keen understanding of the exam makeup and the complexities of the new exam blueprint. Karen Ryan is a distinguished PTA educator who brings a wealth of practical experience to the guide.  She works with a team of expert content contributors to make sure all topics are covered at the depth and level of expertise needed to ensure students are ready for the exam.
