Let me first say that this was my second attempt at the NPTE and thru this program I was able to increase my score by 114 points and pass the boards easily. I took the independent study course and the supplemental videos, especially in areas I was weak in really helped. I cannot thank PT exam enough.
I highly recommend the NPTE Crash Course and the Practice Exam and Written Material Bundle. The crash course was filled with great tips on how to remember difficult content and overall was extremely helpful. The instructors have a lot of experience and are willing to work with you through any questions you may have. The practice exam questions and written material bundle were very beneficial in helping me prepare and are a great addition to the course. PT Final Exam staff you guys are awesome!!! Thank you so much for helping me pass the NPTE the first time!!!!
I’ve passed the board exam for physical therapist on my first attempt with PT final exams not only they have good lectures their practice exams are super helpful for preparing this exam I couldn’t have passed with out it
Thank you so much will and all pt final exam teachers!
If you need a structured road map and routine to help prepare you prepare for the NPTE, PT Final Exam is the place to go! Will and his amazing team have been helping students successfully pass the NPTE for years. The diverse and experienced team will provide the resources, lectures, and confidence you need to get over this last hurdle! They have learning packages that accommodate a variety of learning styles and a podcast that will make traveling very productive. Highly recommend. Good luck with your future studies and your future exam.
The NPTE Crash Course and University Cohort Class were absolutely amazing! Both courses were filled with important material and gave me the information I needed exactly when I needed it. I would recommend any of the PT Final Exam courses to anyone preparing for the NPTE. Will and Mark were extremely helpful throughout the stressful studying process and were able to cover the important main points needed for test day. Thank you PT Final Exam for helping me pass the NPTE on the first try!
The Full NPTE Live Review course was comprehensive and filled with pertinent content to the NPTE. The instructors were professional, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about the material, making it both manageable and engaging to study. The materials included in the course in addition to the classes were extremely helpful including the practice exams, study guide, and workbook, allowing you to break down and digest the content further. One-on-one calls with Dr. Will Crane were available and encouraged in order to answer any questions or to gain confidence. I HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone who is taking the NPTE. Whether you are looking to understand any content, looking for test-taking skills, or looking to gain confidence, this course is worth every cent and allowed me to pass the NPTE with ease. Dr. Will Crane and all instructors surpassed my expectations with this course to feel prepared and confident.
Guess how I found this amazing prep course? Through google! Yes, I typed in to a google search ‘best NPTE review center’ and PT Final Exam appeared number one in the search engine! Then I read most of the reviews of their previous students who could only say how awesome, amazing and excellent this prep course is that led me to register for a full live course. And they are ABSOLUTELY correct! Definitely the best decision I have ever made in my NPTE prep!
The PTFE has helped me tremendously to pass the NPTE. The teaching strategy is well- structured. They simplified and made the exam content easier to understand. For example, I read Kisner’s book several times and consulted other text books how to perform the joint mob of cervical/thoracic and I hardly understand the concept so I had to memorize which side is which and what vertebral level to apply the upglide, When Dr Will Crane explained this concept through his interactive live video, wow! I will never forget the concept of cervical/thoracic joint mobilization ever again. That’s how good this prep course is! It is worth every penny of what you paid for.
PTFE has the most comprehensive prep course. They have it all! They offer a full live course that includes one on one tutoring, four (not three!) practice exam tests, interactive small group live sessions, telegram chat, power call, and interactive live crash video courses where you can ask your questions from most complex to the simplest, and you know why ALL students are very grateful of this awesome team? It’s because they will make you feel that you are valued, they will treat you equally, whether you feel your question is ‘dumb’ or ‘doesn’t make sense’, they will answer every questions you throw to them straight from book references but already simplified! If the tutors don’t know the answer, they will research it for you and come back to your questions with answers from the reference books on the next live session. They will break down the content into easy and manageable concepts. That’s how dedicated and compassionate they are. Dr Will Crane and the rest of the team invested so much of their time and effort in helping their students get through to the hardest contents of NPTE. Oh, and ALL live video sessions are recorded so you can go through it over and over whenever you wish to. Plus you get the bonus of live videos about multiple choice questions strategies, test taking tips, how to overcome your stress & anxiety before, during and after exam. I mean, really, What else could you ask for?!!
To Dr Will Crane and the entire PT FINAL EXAM team, thank you very much for all your help and support. I am forever grateful!
I received my NPTE-PTA Exam score with an 800!!! I was floored! This program (the PTA Crash course & the podcast) attributed so much to the success in passing the boards (on the first attempt - yay!). Being the “Covid-Cohort” as we liked to call ourselves, getting kicked out of labs and in person class back in March made everything a hundred (a million!) times more difficult. Learning physical therapy via Zoom just isn’t how physical therapy is meant to be learned. I felt so uneasy and was experiencing bouts of anxiety as the exam got closer. I had been following the podcast for a while, and when Mark mentioned a PTA crash course I knew I had to purchase! I even missed the Black Friday sale (on accident) but knew paying more was well worth it; I appreciate the way Mark and Will explain things, with tips on remembering and breaking things down. I REALLY appreciated the Gait & prosthetics as well since I felt extremely underprepared in those areas and always found myself feeling angry and confused. After the videos it’s like it ALL CLICKED! Also, thank you for taking the time to create something for the PTAs!!! The assistants need help too; so thank you so much. So excited to have that crossed off and begin my practice!
I can't thank everyone at PT Final Exam enough for helping me pass the NPTE! Thanks to this incredible prep course I was able to pass the NPTE on my first try. Everyone, and I mean everyone in this prep course is invested in your success and wants to see you pass! They will go above and beyond to ensure that you have the required preparation and knowledge to succeed. I was terrified of the NPTE, but PT Final Exam really has a way of organizing the material so that you go into the test confident and ready to pass the NPTE! I highly recommend!
My first exposure to PT Final Exam was at CSM 2019. Before attending this conference, I was unaware that organizations like this even existed - I was so naive! So I introduced myself to Will, and as I listened intently to his elevator pitch, we were interrupted by a young man who stated he "had to come over and thank this guy! He's the reason I passed the NPTE!" I couldn't stop myself from asking if he was a plant. The man assured me he had never actually met Will, saying he just recognized him from the lectures. This is what really struck me - Will conducts all the course lectures himself! I found this to be an extremely valuable component and it is what ultimately led me to register for two different crash courses. And I cannot say enough good things about the courses and the teaching strategy! Will and the team are so invested in their students' NPTE preparation, as is clear through their engagement in the live lectures, responsiveness to even the most random osteokinematic questions via email or live chat, and compassion when breaking down complex topics. I highly recommend using PTFE for your exam prep! There are so many bundle options to choose from, so it can be your primary means of studying, or a supplement to whichever program your school provides (as was the case for me). Either way, this is such an amazing study tool and is definitely worth the investment! Many thanks again to Will and the team, and best of luck to all future test takers!
The university that I attended gifted our cohort with PTFE and it could not have been a greater resource for us in our preparations for the NPTE! I attribute much of passing the NPTE on the first try to the guidance provided by the PTFE team. We had live lectures, access to practice tests, and even were enrolled in the crash course. Each detailed and concise interactive lecture video provided insight in making difficult topic easier to grasp with the use of mnemonics, clever phrases, and just taking the time to explain hard topics and answer questions. 10/10 would recommend to future test takers. The structure the PTFE team provides is amazing, and live interaction in real time is really such an amazing resource in learning and retaining information heading into the exam. Good luck to future test takers and don't forget to check out the NPTE podcast for when you need to be away from the books and computers for lengths of time!
This course was well worth the investment and the full live course was very helpful at reviewing major topics in preparation for the exam. Will and the rest of the PT Final Exam staff were all supportive during this journey and quickly responded to emails and clarified topics during the power calls. I highly recommend this course to anyone who needs structure and support to ensure you pass your boards!
I used the crash course in addition to another prep course company. The course is very content heavy and I believe it served its purpose as a quick run through to give as much content as possible. I can credit the crash course to my success on my final attempt on the NPTE. The only con I had with the course was the timeframe was scheduled for an 1-1.5hrs but it would usually go over and it was late in my time zone. You can watch it as a recording but with the course being in the last 3 weeks of class, it can be overwhelming. I also used their discounted 3 exam bundle and would recommend them as well. All in all, I would recommend the services I used in preparation for my NPTE!
I would like to personally thank everyone at PT Final Exam for the guidance that they provided during my preparation for the boards. Preparing for the NPTE was not easy, but the structure that was provided was very helpful and I know that it contributed greatly to my success. I recommend PT Final Exam to everyone that requires guidance during their preparation for the NPTE like I did.
Thank you all for your help!
PTFE was an awesome prep course! The course helps you organize and manage the amount of material needed to study. They really help you feel confident going into the exam! I highly recommend!
I don’t even know where to begin! As an NPTE “repeat offender” I tried multiple different study courses through other companies and happy to have found PT Final Exam!! The content alone is absolutely incredible, from the live courses to one on ones with the instructors, small group study sessions, the use of the class Telegram group, the practice exams, the workbook, you name it. This class cannot be beat! It took me approximately 1 live class lecture to realize I was in the right place. The attention to detail that both Will and Mark put into this course to not only teach the material but also ensure each student has found their way of learning the material and making sure it actually sticks and can be applied in context goes without saying this is the best preparation course on the market! I’ve never been a traditional student who can read textbook after textbook and this course taught me how to repurpose and refine my skills through additional methods. The outline of content alongside the presentation of material is beyond elite and the professionalism of how it is all wrapped up for you the “learner” to actually learn goes unmatched. I wholeheartedly recommend and will continue to recommend PTFE to any and all NPTE candidates who are looking for a concrete way to tune up their skills, testing strategies, and fundamental knowledge of everything this wonderful career has to offer! RUN, don’t walk to register for this course now, I promise you won’t regret it!!
It was the year 2020, the year of COVID. With a lot of disorganization and kids always being home from closed daycares due to the virus, studying was quite difficult for many. However, there was this program called PT Final Exam (no, it wasn't a cure for COVID, but it did help with the organization). Their workbook was helpful for me to organize my thoughts and make them my own. The videos further explained concepts in better ways taught in most PT programs that helped for testing day. This made life all that easier while my study time was minimized with all the outside distractions. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting more in their studies. If you put forth the work with them, you will pass (even though Gandalf the gray says otherwise).
PT Final Exam was the perfect course to prepare for the NPTE! Will and the rest of the instructors were all top notch and very knowledgeable! It is well designed and structured to ensure that you stay on pace, while also offering other great study methods and tips! 100 percent recommend
PT Final exam was the best NPTE exam prep I have experienced...and I experienced/used two other popular companies. I found PT Final Exam the most helpful because rather than the other companies that just gave you practice questions and supplied textbooks, PT Final Exam provided live video content review. Personally I was not the student who can stick their head in a textbook and read all day, so the Live video content was super helpful for me. Live sessions provided content, interaction, and more direct attention to immediately answer questions and explain any topics that I had difficulty understanding. The platform they use allowed them to instantly share pictures, charts, tables, or even make drawings to help any student understand concepts in whichever way worked best for them. PT Final Exam was helpful in reviewing key content that I may have forgotten about, and even taught me a lot of information that I believe I never learned in PT school. I would strongly recommend PT Final Exam to any student who needs help preparing for the NPTE. Will and his team have always been quick to respond to any questions, and assist in any ways they could. There has been a tremendous amount of content added, and they have even expanded from 2 to 4 practice exams. PT Final exam has continuously grown and adapted to the times, and what students have suggested. Highly recommend!!!
The PTA crash course is probably one of the best decisions I made when preparing for the NPTE PTA exam! I had failed the exam 2 previous times and can’t believe I wasn’t made aware of their awesome resources until my third attempt. Needless to say it was a great decision to enroll and take the course. They provide all the needed information and make it easy to understand and they go above and beyond with their free podcast as well as extra videos online. I highly recommend PT final exam!!
It was a very helpful course. Mark and Will do a great job condensing a lot of material in a short amount of time but still making it easy and understandable for anyone trying to learn. I definitely would recommend this course to anyone looking to have help prior to taking their boards exam.
I cannot recommend the PTA Crash Course highly enough!! I learned more in three weeks than I did during 6 months of studying from Exam books!! The practice exam questions are so helpful, as well as all of Mark's fun mnemonic devices, songs, and videos! This was truly the best money I spent out of all of my PTA Exam prep textbooks and online exams. Taking this course gave me confidence and practical study tips and tricks. I am so happy to say that I passed the PTA exam and it is absolutely thanks to PT Final Exam PTA Crash Course! Thank you, Mark and Will!!
This crash course was the best thing i have Ever purchased to help me prepare for my exam! I didnt Pass the first time i took my exam, so I was desperate to find something that would work for me. This course is 3 weeks, 4 Live lectures which are recorded and you could go back to watch them later as needed. Also the support that Mark and Will and others who took the course with me definitely helped! The crash course comes with extra lectures that cover other systems as well which helped me a ton! Thank you PT FINAL EXAM!
Hey Will and team!
Just wanted to send an overdue thank you for your program. I used the independent study program for the October exam and cannot thank you enough. Not even just for the content but the emotional support/relatability. It’s so much more than just the content and it’s important you guys know that! Thank you for helping me pass with flying colors on my first attempt! Awesome work guys!
Passed my PTA exam on my 2nd attempt thanks to Will and Mark with the PTA crash course! I loved the zoom sessions which were 4 days a week as to they helped me to stay on track with my studying. I tried to study from Basecamp and just on my own, however shortly realized it was not working for me and when I came across this course I have no regrets! I loved attending the live lecture and then watching the recordings to make sure I didn’t miss anything or pause the video for topics I needed to review more in depth! I wish I would have known about this course my first time around as to it really helped me pass the exam with the mnemonics and other tips on how to remember medications, pathologies, etc! I can’t recommend the course enough!! Thanks Will and Mark for all you hard work to prepare us for the NPTAE!!!
Definitely one of the best courses to take in preparation for the boards. I thought taking it in January was going to be so much harder with the holidays, but having access to the live lectures, the extra lectures and the podcasts really helped me to stay on top of studying. And I will highly recommend you to future classes.
Considering the amount of material covered by the NPTE attempting to self-study can be pretty daunting. I had purchased the Scorebuilders’ “PTA Exam: the complete study guide” and online access to BaseCamp. I found PTFE Crash Course to be far more valuable and user friendly. At least it was for me, which is why I am grateful to Will and Mark for the structure they provided with the PT Final Exam Crash Course. It’s still a lot of information and it will go by fast! However, it is recorded live and accessible shortly after each meeting ends.
The weeks are devoted to one of the three primary systems, according to the FSBPT: musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, and cardiopulmonary. There were four video conferences (~70 minutes each) per week which covered: examination, evaluation, interventions, and practice questions pertinent to that system. Most of the weekly calls had 2-3 practice questions to reinforce consolidation of concepts discussed, whereas the weekend practice question session provided 8-10 questions with discussion limited to rationale for the correct answer. The strategies provided for how to study for the exam and how to address the exam questions were extremely beneficial. The mnemonics provided specifically helped with retention and memorization of dermatomes/myotomes and cardiopulmonary medications, which weren’t covered in my PTA program. There are also some additional pre-recorded lectures covering non-systems topics, I only watched the gait and gait deviations videos so I cannot speak at length on the beneficence of these video lectures. Will and Mark to be extremely helpful and promptly responsive to any questions during lecture as well as over email and Telegram.
Look forward to using the PT version in the future! 😉
Passed my PTA exam on my first attempt thanks to the terrific PTA crash course! I loved the multiple weekly zoom sessions which helped me to stay on track with my studying. The material complemented my personal study plan, and I loved the ability to be able to ask questions on issues I was struggling with so close to the exam. The ability to rewatch the webinars and the additional content at any time was very helpful to really absorb the content. I can’t recommend the program enough!! Thanks Will and Mark for all you efforts and great content to help prepare me an Exam I never want to take again. 🙂
Taking the PTA crash course before my NPTE exam was key to success. The classes where a perfect complement of my study plan. I was concerned because English is my second language. But thanks to Mark and Will I made it on my first attempt. The organization of main topics to review, the resources to remember things and the Telegram chat group was a fun and great experience. Thank you!
My journey to become a PTA has been frought with obstacles during this global pandemic but it has also proven to be a great year for some amazing opportunities to learn. I was trying to study on my own and felt disorganized and overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information, I needed to process in order to be proficient on the board exsm. I really didn't know what to do. I found PT FINAL Exam on online from a video they posted on abnormal gait patterns and it was brilliant! I enrolled in their crash course. That was the best decision ever! I am so grateful. Will Crane and Mark Stevens are master teachers ! I learned so much in a short amount of time! I am so grateful to took the course! Thank you , Will and Mark!
Honestly I don’t think I would have passed on my first attempt without PT Final Exam. They did so great and provided the best information to wrap up before taking the NPTE. Thank you PTFE!!!
This course was a tremendous help as I was stumped on ways to study for the NPTAE after two previously failed attempts. I passed the exam with flying colors and it’s safe to say it was with the help of this course and the knowledge I gained from Will and Mark. This course is laid out in an organized manner to target the three main systems tested on the licensure exam with access to two great mentors to answer all questions. I wish I would have known about this course on my first attempt. 10/10 recommend this course!!
PTFE was great! Alana was helpful through emails and live meetings. All the pre-recorded videos were excellent and It was awesome being able to re-watch videos multiple times. When my boards date got pushed due to graduation, PTFE extended my access to all content. The exams were spot on with the difficulty when compared to the PEATs and actual NPTE. This program really helped organize all the information and gave a great layout for studying, so you knew you hit all topic areas. Well worth the money if you want to pass on the first try!
I was always a horrible standardized test taker, and while I was hesitant on paying for a prep course, I ultimately decided it would help at least a little bit. Everyone at PTFE was so incredibly encouraging and all served as a great resource. Not only did they help equip me with tips and tricks and help me review essential information, they also helped me improve my confidence immensely. I have dreaded the NPTE but PTFE helped me prep not only academically but personally and was able to get me to a point where I actually felt confident going into the test. Definately was one of the best decisions I could have made in my NPTE prep!
PT Final Exam program was hands down some of the best money I spent in my efforts to become a physical therapist. This program helped me to organize what was an overwhelming amount of information into a format that I could manage and understand. The tips on how to remember content, as well as to how to manage the testing format were invaluable. Having Dr. Crane and the rest of the team available to clarify content and answer questions about what was not clear made a huge difference. I especially appreciate that during the stress of Covid19, Dr. Crane stepped up and made his services affordable to someone like me. During what was already a stressful time, he made the stress of the NPTE less stressful. I cannot thank him enough for his help! I would not have passed the NPTE on my first attempt without his help and his course.
I was a live course student and passed the NPTE in 1st attempt. I am thankful to Mr.Crane for his guidance and support during my journey of NPTE preparation. I really appreciate his friendly & "to the point" teaching style during the class and his prompt replies to my doubts through the email. Thanks to Ms.Arunima, who always encouraged me during the times when I felt low and anxious about the test. Also grateful to Mr. Mark, whose strategies to remember the lab values and scales are wonderful. PTFE is one of the best resources to clear NPTE. I wish all the best to the PT final exam team and the future test takers.
I started to NPTE Crash Course program about mid-way through the course for the October 2020 exam. I had previously been studying on my own and was getting frustrated by the daunting amount of content I felt that I needed to get through and the average to mediocre results I was getting on my practice exams. Despite feeling like I had a strong base of knowledge from my independent study, I started looking into online test prep courses to supplement my work. I chose the Crash Course option because I was beginning to get short on time (a little over a month until test day) and because one of the modules offered was on Test-taking Strategies.
Thanks to the online availability of the modules that I missed, I was able to complete the entire program in 3-4 weeks. It helped a lot to condense my focus on what I really needed to know without getting too stuck in the weeds of memorizing minor details. I scored a 690 on my NPTE!
The PT Final Exam course really helped me organize my study time. I feel like I got a good review every week and it helped guide my coverage of material in a timely and direct fashion. All in all, it helped me pass on my first attempt! So glad that I took advantage of it.
Dear Future PT Final Exam students,
I am delighted to recommend Dr. Will Crane's PT Final Exam course to all National Physical Therapy Examination candidates. I have known Dr. Will Crane since June of 2020 since I purchased his PT Final Exam course. In the past 3 months, Dr. Will Crane has served as my PT Final Exam instructor and private tutor in all core content that is assessed on the National Physical Therapy Licensing Exam. As a disabled veteran suffering from permanent physical and mental disabilities, Dr. Crane was able to accommodate my academic learning disabilities and provide instruction so I could comprehend, synthesize, apply and integrate the material to excel on examination questions in parallel with applying it to clinical practice. Under Dr. Crane’s instruction, I passed every physical examination assessment tool written by the Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy and demonstrated significant improvement on each subsequent attempt. I took a total of 4 physical examination assessment tools. In addition, I passed the National Physical Therapy Licensing Examination with flying colors on my first attempt.
Dr. Crane is an outstanding instructor who consistently displays exemplary teaching skills and sustains superior performance within his profession in a variety of physical therapy settings. He exhibits magnificent teaching ability with extensive knowledge in the field of physical therapy and he is, in my opinion, the best instructor on the PT Final Examination team. Dr. Crane displays exceptional motivation and initiative, in parallel with having unlimited potential, and a desire to produce outstanding results in all of his assigned tasks.
Dr. Crane inspires cooperation, progress and is excellent at accepting and offering student direction. He also focuses goals and techniques for students, is an inspiring motivator and teacher, thus allowing his subordinates to reach the highest level of growth and development. Dr. Crane is an outstanding organizer of core content lectures, has great foresight, is a remarkable communicator and constantly improves the professional lives of students. Dr. Crane’s performance as a PT Final Instructor is superior to any college level university physical therapy professor I have encountered. In addition, he has consistently promoted a sense of teamwork and esprit de corp amongst students unlike any other professor I have ever had.
It is an understatement to say that Dr. Crane performed his aforementioned duties and responsibilities as a PT Final Exam instructor and content designer in an exemplary and highly professional manner at all times. Dr. Crane always exhibited total dedication, superb teaching ability and tremendous work ethic in parallel with his uncanny ability to influence a diverse group of students internationally and nationwide to learn, work together and employ teamwork. Dr. Crane’s charismatic teaching style coupled with his expertise in the field of physical therapy allowed him to quickly earn the trust and respect of his subordinates and of myself. His demeanor, values and trustworthiness are above reproach and he always, in my eyes, set the standard of how an autonomous, exemplary health care practitioner should be judged. All of his traits starting from his personal appearance to his interactions with others always set a good example for all to emulate.
The performance of Dr. Will Crane has been nothing less than exceptional during his time as a PT Final Exam instructor. Dr. Crane’s in-depth knowledge and untiring efforts are commendable in demonstrating total commitment to the profession of teaching and assisting students perform well on the National Physical Therapy Licensing Examination. Dr. Crane’s exceptional professional ability, initiative, and loyal devotion to duty reflect credit upon himself and the American Association of Physical Therapy. It is for these reasons that I highly recommend Dr. Crane’s PT Final Exam course to all National Physical Therapy Examination candidates enthusiastically and without reservations.

PTFE was recommended to me by a CI during my first clinical rotation but I will be honest I was skeptical and didn't want to spend the money. Now, I am very glad I did. I enrolled in the independent study course and it was very helpful, gave me great information and tips! I went through a lot of personal things the weeks prior to the exam and I was worried about passing the NPTE. The whole PTFE team was very helpful and answered my questions prior to the exam and on 9/8 I found out I passed! I definitely would recommend this program for anyone needing some guidance. I found myself getting very overwhelmed trying to study without it prior but they were able to give me direction and areas to focus! Thank you PTFE!! And to all of you studying for the exam trust yourself and stick with the program, you can do it!
At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like PT final exam because I haven't heard much about them compared to other NPTE study programs. I enrolled in the independent study course and really liked that I was able to go at my own pace. I wasn't doing as well as I wanted on the practice exams so I reached out to Mark and he looks at my scores and gave me advice on which areas to focus on and my last PEAT before the exam I got a 691- and then a week later passed the NPTE! This course gave me guidance on areas to study, tricks to memorize difficult context and the confidence to attack difficult questions. I've reached out to other NPTE study programs for advice and never got responses, and if I did get a response I was sent their "fee" for getting advice. I never got that vibe with PT final exam. Hope this review is helpful for future students, trust the process and I know you will crush the exam with the help of PT final exam!
With deepest gratitude to Will and the entire PTFE crew, I am so excited to share that I PASSED the NPTE!!! 2020 has been full of surprises, challenges, and even full on struggles for everyone. Attempting to cope with a Fail on my first attempt, was feeling insurmountable due to concurrent events of this past year. I felt completely alone when I decided to do an online search for board prep programs. When I found PTFE and reached out, I gained more support than I thought possible. The program quite literally gave me a lifeline which helped shift me to a positive mindset, provided a study structure with streamlined materials, as well as personal coaching. I even developed study-buddy schedule with another student. I know that it took the combination of everything offered from Will and the entire team to help me successfully clear this hurdle. I gained so many useful tips and tools from everyone. Now, it is my desire that my story can instill that spark of Hope in you to keep going and crush this, no matter if this is your first or repeat attempt, you can do this, Never give up!!
I was recommended on this course by an upperclassman who passed the first time too. And, honestly, I am so glad I did. Knowing that reading the scorebuilders text was not going to be enough since I have always been a visual learner, I knew this course was what I needed. Will and his entire team were great! They were able to break down concepts, give insight about the NPTE, and gave out plenty of practice questions that when it came time for the test, I used those tips and advice, which came super handy. I registered for the Live Course bundle and found it helpful whenever I had any questions to ask, along with the "Will Crane Power Call" if I had any concerns or just needed a boost in morale. There were a couple of minor issues here and there (hence the 4 stars), but other than that, highly recommend. I was able to take this test in July 2020 on my first and only attempt and passed. As Alana said in every single one of her review videos, "The past is the past, make this test your FIRST and LAST!"
I’m what they call a “repeat offender”. I had previously taken the NPTE twice and did not pass, with my more recent attempt back in January 2020 missing the cut-off by 3 agonizing points. I felt lost, confused, and frustrated as to what I did wrong, so I researched online courses that could potentially aid in my study and exam prep. I’m so thankful that I found PT Final Exam and chose to participate in their live course. It was everything that I needed and was looking for to navigate the overwhelming amount of content on the NPTE. I realized structure and guidance were what I was lacking all along. Will Crane and the other instructors felt so approachable/accessible, and they truly want everyone to succeed. PTFE helped me change my entire outlook on the exam, mindset, study process, and ultimately my career trajectory. Because of PTFE, I did not have the crippling fear and anxiety that I had with my previous exam attempts - I was actually confident while taking the test. PTFE helped me to increase my score by 72 points to successfully pass the July NPTE! So, from a stay at home mom of twins for almost 6 years (with a Physical Therapist buried somewhere underneath it all), take it from me and INVEST in this course! You will not regret it! Thank you, PTFE!
“To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded”– Ralph Waldo Emerson.
You can see this saying in every email that Will sends to you. I guess this is his favorite and this is just what he accomplished in my life. I enrolled in PT final exam more than a year ago. Even when my membership expired, Will let me use the site so I can continue to study. I’m a single mom and this was a lot of help to me. He is selfless and kind to those in need. Ever willing to support you every step of the way. I am forever indebted for all the help he extended to me.
From my heart, I thank Will and the whole PT Final exam team for being a part of my journey towards being a licensed PT in NY. Just follow Will’s advice on how to study and of course, listen to their lectures and you’re on the right track!
More power to you guys! And keep making a difference in someone’s life!
PT final exam was recommended by a friend and it was amazing. The live videos allowed me to ask questions as the session was happening and the extra videos allowed me to expand my knowledge that much more. The PT final exam crew truly cares about the students and sets up a great plan. I passed on the first try! Highly recommend PT final exam!
PT final exam was recommended to me by a friend in my program who had failed the NPTE on her first attempt but passed on the second attempt with PTFE. I really wanted to pass on the first try so I gave PTFE a shot and I'm so glad I did. If you are worried about disciplining yourself through months of studying, this is the program for you to keep you on track and motivated. It also helps that the instructors are available to you 24/7 so all your questions are answered. I love that they have a mix of written content, pre-recorded lectures, and live lectures. I passed on my first attempt and I know I couldn't have done it without PTFE.
Thanks PTFE team!
On my first Therapy Ed Exam I scored a 61% which put me into freak out mode.
I took their crash course of MSK, CVP, and NM and it was absolutely amazing. You are able to attend these sessions live but if not they have it recorded for you to watch whenever is best for you. They really really helped solidify concepts that are important and showed up on the NPTE.
It was a really affordable investment compared to other programs too.
I am a foreign trained PT and tried twice to pass the NPTE on my own. Then it was clear I needed help. So I decided to go with PT Final Exam. And how glad I am I did. Will Crane is really knowledgeable and he takes time to explain and to be there for his students. With all the uncertainties with Covid-19 he offered on top of the regular webinars frequently office hours. I learned so much that I went to my last attempt (fourth) in a relaxed mood and even kind of enjoyed taking the exam. I got out of the Exam and felt quite sure I passed. My husband picked me up and was surprised that I was smiling. I increased my score by 70 points. PT Final Exam was the best decision I could make. Thank you very much, Will! You are awesome!!
My biggest hurdle for studying for the NPTE was the overwhelming amount of content and lack of structure. PTFE gave me the organization I needed and broke down the NPTE content outline into something much more manageable. I did the independent course and loved being able to move through the content at my own pace and at my own convenience. The bonus content lectures really helped me with the tough concepts and made me feel confident going into the exam. Using PTFE as my main study source helped me score an 800 on my exam, and I don't think it was a coincidence. I have recommended PTFE to my classmates who are taking the July exam, and I recommend it to anyone reading this review as well!
