Whether you are a PT or PTA student, this is a critical question. How in the world to you sort through all of that great content you have learned over the last several years and effectively study for a comprehensive exam? There are several different guides, and it’s hard to know which one is best. I’ll do my best to give you the pros and cons of each.

I have detailed each of the systems-please just click on each one to find its dedicated page. Certainly all of them have their advantages. Therapy-Ed and Scorebuilders each have on-campus review sessions that you can schedule. These would be organized 2-day events where you would get a crash course in a very few hours. The cost isn’t exorbitant, but it didn’t really fit my study style. I have spoken with some folks that did enjoy it. I will tell you that I chose to use the Scorebuilders’ book and mobile app when I was preparing. I think the best part about it was being able to just whip out my IPod Touch and going through a dozen questions while I was riding the bus or taking a break between classes. Whichever one you choose, remember to get every ounce of study power out of it. Study hard and you’ll do well.
