Of course this is just my opinion but I hope it helps anyone reading this:
After struggling with my first two attempts I was mentally strained and was looking high and low for help to get through it. There is so much content that goes into the NPTE exam and PT Final Exam helped me by keeping me on a schedule and provided a template of where I needed to be if I got confused or if I went down a rabbit hole during my studying, which was often. What was even better was when I was mentally drained or fatigued, I was able to reach out and have several of the staff personally reach out to me and talk me through the mental stress with some great support. Shout out to Jon, Will and the rest of the PTFE staff! Couldn't have done it without all of you and thank you for the support!
PT Final Exam Review definitely helped me pass the NPTE on the first attempt. The Core Content Review videos are what helped to keep me engaged in studying. I wasn't just reading through a study book but I was listening, writing, and reviewing all the topics. My practice exam score greatly improved as I went through the PT Final Exam content. Highly recommend taking this course to smash the NPTE! Thank you Mark for helping my class out!
PT Final Review was a HUGE BLESSING! I had struggled all through out school and while trying to pass the test and I was so tired of not understanding and being frustrated with myself! Then I finally used PT Finally and my world flipped all for the better! I understood complex concepts better, worked through problems, and felt better about my own knowledge! The workbook was great for the way my brain learns and now it’s my refresher study guide! The instructors and curriculum were amazing! Thank you PT Final Exam!
I am so happy to be writing this review as a licensed physical therapist! I have always been a horrible test taker. And the NPTE was no exception. I was three weeks away from my 4th attempt when I found out about PT Final Exam. Although I failed again, I had confidence from PT Final Exam that I didn't have before. The videos and content were amazing and I gave it my all on my 5th attempt and finally PASSED the NPTE with the help from Will and his staff! Thanks again guys!
I purchased this to use before taking the PeAT exam that I was required to pass before I could graduate and used it again to study for the actual exam a few months later. I could not have passed this on my own without the direction and the videos. They are what got me through both tests and to a licensed DPT right now!
PT final exam helped me in many ways that i could not fathom. I had failed the NPTE twice before i bought the independent study and it totally was worth the investment because I passed on my third attempt! It was comforting to know many of your instructors faced the same situations as we did. I loved the variability of topics included as well. I have recommended this course to many current students. You all are amazing! Thank you!
Will Crane and PT Final Exam are the absolute best! They work tirelessly to help you pass the NPTE as painlessly as possible. Their organization of the material alone saved me tons of time and grief. Will treats you like a real person, and is always willing to help if you have problems. Top shelf skills from a great team of professionals!
I passed the National PT Exam in 1993 for the first time - back when scores were mailed out on a hand-typed letter! Now, after 17 years of taking a break from work to raise kids, I passed the NPTE again (on the first attempt) in October 2019 in order to apply for a CA license. PTFinalExam was a tremendous help during my exam preparation After so many years, I needed to review topics I had not thought about since working in rehab, and some topics I had not thought about since my PT school days. Also, I had to learn new material that has been added to the PT curriculum. PTFinalExam was the primary source I used to know on which resources and on what topics to focus my attention on. Awesome program! Excellent instructors, lectures and study materials!
This was a great decision I made for myself. The entire staff especially Alana went above and beyond to help me pass. The weeks I felt anxious or uncertain Alana took the extra effort to help calm me down and get back on track. They were all easily accessible via email and overall the structure of the course was very beneficial. The workbook was effective to really help y ou understand what you knew well and what you had to improve on. Overall it was a great study course and just a very positive support staff to work with.
My PTFE review experience is more than awesome. The lecturers are so nice and I can feel their sincerity that they really wanna help us crush the exam. I like that they always give encouraging words to really motivate and push us to do more. It’s my third time taking the NPTE and I can say that I never had that confidence in me taking that FNL. It’s all because of you guys. I already recommended PTFE to my friends who will take this year’s exam as my way of thanking you guys.
For the most part, I really liked this class. This class is very good at tackling all the material on the NPTE and the weekly live sessions/core content reviews are extremely helpful. All of the instructors go above and beyond to help you understand the information that is presented. However, I would caution using this class as the sole study material for the NPTE. While this class does cover a lot of topics, there are topics that are on the NPTE and are NOT included in this class's material. I did not pass the NPTE on my first attempt when using only this class as my study source. However, I did pass on my second attempt when I used this class AND other study materials to supplement for the information I was not getting from this class. Overall, I would recommend to recent PT graduates, but I would also suggest using other sources in your studies as well.
Great recourses on tricky topics. All team members had helpful tips when it came to remembering the small details. Would highly recommend.
To all of you I want to say thank you!!! You were part of my life for 9 months and I will miss you. I woke up with you and I went to bed with you. I had you in my ears, brain...
Your body motions Alana and Jonathan helped me tons as well your advise in every core session. Kelsey and Arunima you are incredible teachers. Kelsey everything felt on place for my in neuro, you are Awesome!! Matt your tip questions are very good. Shrutti, the love you have for been a PT is great, Mark you involved you whole family and that is an amazing example; I can't believe that now I don't mind to work with amputees and is because of you. Phil you have so much to share and is great.
All of you THANK YOU!!! The feeling I had when the blue screen showed in my phone at 12:10am was of incredulity. It was to early and I just wanted to test my link in my phone. Seriously, results don't come that early, but it was. I am still enjoy that feeling and you were a big part of that and forever I will be grateful.
You have a home whenever you come to Houston!!
I'm an American who chose to study and earn my degree abroad. PTFE was an absolutely invaluable tool in helping me prioritize, and organize my studying. As a foreign university, my school did not have the end goal of training students to pass the NPTE, so it was initially intimidating when starting to prepare after graduation. Without the help of Will and all the other tutors at PTFE, I would have been overwhelmed in trying to study for the exam. Not only did they provide excellent material guidelines and assignments, but they also help you prepare for how to approach and break down the questions to identify what are they really asking. I took the exam after trying to prepare on my own first, and wasn't quite where I needed to be. After following the outline and doing the work provided in this course, my scores on practice exams and the PEAT increased dramatically (PEAT 65% first attempt; 83% on the 2nd attempt taken about 1 year later after this course!). Having these resources and instructors available to me really helped me zero in on my weaknesses and make the adjustments I needed to finally pass and become a licensed PT! This course was by far the best investment I made in preparing for the NPTE. Thanks again to the whole PTFE team!
I was nervous after my first attempt, looking at all the prep courses that promoted a 40 point increase for most of their course users as I needed 70+ to reach a passing score. That beings said I took a leap of faith with PT Final Exam and I am so glad I did. PTFE it was a game changer for my NPTE prep. Not only did I get my 70 points I needed but I scored over 100 points more than my first attempt. I was way more confident through the exam both with the content and just walking through the door. I knew I had worked smarter and harder with my prep this round, and as I was taking the test I knew I was getting a majority of the answers correct. I've recommended it to everyone I know taking the NPTE and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys visual, auditory, and interactive learning.
Dr. Will’s youtube videos on ABGs, PNF and postural drainage are an example of guidance and quick revision resources this prep. course offers.
The regular instructors do their best to make classes engaging and enlightening on important concepts for the NPTE. All in all, the prog. is useful.
I want to give a shout out to the PTFE staff for making great content in preparation for the boards. I've learned that preparing for the boards is no easy task, especially when tackling the feat studying independently. I found that the videos were extremely helpful in calming my anxiety and nervousness. My favorite quality about the PTFE instructors is their encouragement and words of support to help you get through the process and pass the test. WAHOO, I'm all done and am extremely grateful for the opportunity learning from this group of individuals.
I just want to thank the team at PT final exam for being a major part of my journey to passing the NPTE on my first attempt. The hours of core content reviews, practice questions, podcasts, and availability of Will to answer my questions truly gave me the confidence to make this January attempt my first and last! Thank you so much!
I am so grateful to PTFE team! This was my second attempt at NPTE- PT exam. The last time I was so disorganized and did not know where to start from, I did work hard but failed in the end. I was super miserable and decided to go for PTFE online classes. They are worth every penny. They put in the hard work of creating an organized syllabus, guide you through most of the topics and the online lectures are simply the best! This time around they got me excited for the exam and I passed! Thank you Will and team for helping so many like me out there! I will highly recommend this course to everyone who is taking their exam second, third or even first time! You guys are the best!
This course has truly been a blessing. I failed the exam three times (scoring in the 580s everytime) and had given up on getting my PTA two years ago! After getting my masters in exercise science, I decided to face my fear of retaking this exam. The instructors were super supportive and gave great advice on how to best prep for the exam. I took the practice test here , purchased the peat, studied from the "red PT bible," went through the study guides, made sure to attend all live courses and reviewed the bonus sessions. I am proud to say I , passed the exam with a 686 and am officially a PTA! Many Thanks!!!
some people are for the money and some are for educated others. I only could afford the monthly subscription ( the independent study) when I realized my time was expired but my state board was 3 days ahead , and I really needed more time to be able to see again the videos however I didn't have money to extend my subscription, them I emailed to Will and explained my case with few words, a minute later I received his email wishing me good luck and gave a free time. The next 48 hours after his email , I went back to review his videos until I felt ready to pass my test. PT Final exam gave me a sense of certainty, clarify in simple terms and common sense some info that before I couldn't understand because all the technically in the terminology . I would like to say Thanks to Will for answer my email so quick, for being there when I needed extra help.
Highly recommend this program after failing my PTA boards twice I started to get discouraged and then I found this program and passed no problem this time. This program helped make my weaknesses into my strengthens.
My goal was to be able to write a review and here I am! I took the January 2020 NPTAE and it was my third time around. I failed my second test with a 597, and my confidence was blown to pieces. PT final exam helped me go back to the basics and rebuild my knowledge and confidence. When I walked out of the test, I couldn’t wait for my results! I can’t thank all of those at PT final exam enough, now I can pursue my dreams.
After fail my first exam in July, my professor told me to look into PT final exam. I’m not a type of student who can read and pick up the “important ”points because everything for me was important. This program helped me know what would be the important points to studying or memorizing. I loved the tips and tricks to remember things I had trouble with. With PTfinal exam I improved 33 points and passed October exam. I enjoyed and learned from each lecture and it was the most helpful exam prep class I took. Thank you PT final exam!
After failing the NPTE on my first attempt I wasn’t sure what to do as far as preparing for round two. A couple classmates told me about PTFE’s independent course so I decided to check it out. I’m more of an active learner so I registered for the online live course which was the best choice for me! I really enjoyed the live and recorded lectures and each instructors special study tips and tricks to remember concepts. The study guide helped me keep things organized and if you stick to the calendar things will roll along smoothly. I felt that I’ve learned so much in the months of using PTFE! The communication was great and I stayed in contact with Will during my journey. There was nothing but positivity and encouragement from the team! My first attempt I earned a 563, and on my second and final attempt I earned a 680! My score was even withheld for a few days due to such a significant increase in points! I’m now licensed and it feels great!
I graduated from a PT college in Brazil in 2001, and I didn’t know what else to do differently in order to pass the NPTE after previous failed attempts. Fortunately, I found out about PTFE, and decided to enroll in the Independent Study Course. The combination of multiple lectures and guided study materials helped increase my level of confidence and understanding on unfamiliar and complex topics. PTFE was definitely a valuable tool that guided me on my path to success. I highly recommend PTFE, especially to those educated outside the U.S.A.
PT Final Exam is a wonderful stand-alone resource for NPTE preparation or it can be used to complement additional study material. I was able to successfully pass the NPTE in Oct with a score of 663 after failing the NPTE in July with a 590. The study strategies suggested by staff provided guidance with how to direct my focus and energy. Will Crane provides excellent resources that breakdown STEM questions and highlights how to manage your time while taking the test. The staff provided challenging practice questions in their lectures that forced me to gain deeper understanding of course content and helped me identify topics of weak understanding. Each instructor condenses vast amounts of information in to very helpful mnemonics, tables or video series that are extremely helpful for recall. All the instructors were very knowledgeable and supportive. Most importantly the instructors were extremely motivating and encouraging regarding improving mindset. I felt devastated after failing my first NPTE but the personal stories shared by the staff regarding their NPTE journey helped sooth my worried mind. They were extremely positive and reassuring which helped me focus on the upcoming NPTE and stop fretting over the previous NPTE attempt. I would highly encourage PT Final Exam for anyone preparing for the NPTE.
I used this course in conjunction with Scorebuilders and found it VERY helpful. The pre recorded videos and live lectures were great. Each video covers several different topics which I really enjoyed. Will was available to answer any questions I had through email. Definitely recommend this course for anyone taking the NPTE!!
I wanted to write all of those at PTFE for their help in getting to the finish line with the NPTE. I graduated in 1998, received my Pedi specialty certificate five years later and loved what I did. I had my own kiddos, took a break and during a time of total chaos in our home, let my license lapse without even realizing it! (long story short)
Not having a true classroom setting and having never stepped into a clinical setting OTHER than peds since 1998, taking the NPTE was truly overwhelming. I couldn't have gotten through the mountain of information without your workbook, seminars, test questions, facebook/discussion board questions, and support. You had great tips for preparing for an exam which was huge since the last big test I had taken was in 2003 for my specialty certificate. Excited for the next step!
Thanks to your team! Keep up the good work!
I failed on my first attempt with a 597 (one question away!) and knew I needed a more structured study schedule. PTFE is affordable and the instructors are not only great at delivering important content, but also super encouraging and built up my confidence to go into my second attempt with no anxiety. I ended up scoring a 703! I am so thankful to Will and the whole team at PTFE
I failed my first attempt in July and was looking for something to more appropriately guide my studying this time. This course was exactly what I needed. It helped me get organize and focus on the critical information necessary to pass. I used their workbook and supplemented with other study guides and textbooks to get a better understanding. The live and recorded review courses were SO helpful in keeping me accountable while giving me better ways to synthesize information. I will recommend this course to anyone who asks and especially for anyone on repeat attempts. The support this course gave me was just great!
UPDATE: After getting my score report this morning I am ecstatic to tell you I scored a 689 on my successful second attempt! That was a 148 point increase from my failure at 541 this first go around. Thank you to you and the whole PT Final Exam crew for the part you all played in getting me here!!I think there were a few factors that were really helpful this go around. Having the workbook assignments was pretty significant right off the bat, I really needed that structure to help me focus. Last time I just tried to read through O’Sullivan and I think I got bogged down and didn’t retain the information appropriately. It kept me accountable to have the live sessions and to have the review videos each week. I made Quizlet flashcards based on the workbook assignments and made sure to regularly review topics instead of trying to say I’d learn neuro(for example) for one week and then move on to the next topic. I had pretty bad test anxiety last time and making a point to take a practice test each Thursday at the same time as my NPTE was, was helpful with building endurance and lessening the anxiety. Overall it was just a huge confidence boost!I’m so grateful to PT Final Exam, it made this second go around a lot less scary and I honestly feel more confident to go forward as a clinician with all this great review!
Failed on my first attempt and was looking for an affordable study option. PT Final exam keeps you accountable with multiple study sessions a week and covered a lot of material that was key for the NPTE. Can't thank them enough!
I purchased the Live online course session and it was great and easy to use. I added supplemental material as well, such as the Therapy Ed book in addition to textbooks used during PT school. The staff here at PT Final Exam was awesome and super friendly. The website was easy to use and was very user friendly. Don't get me wrong it takes more then just this tool to pass the NPTE, but it is a necessary tool if you are a multiple attempter and want to pass the NPTE. Thank you again Will and staff for the push and directing me to finally pass the NPTE.
It was my 5th attempt and I made it!!! Thank you PTFE.
I purchased the Independent Study Course to help me prepare for the October NPTE. PT Final Exam helped me gain a better understanding of several complex concepts on the NPTE. The instructors are very knowledgeable and the videos are extremely helpful. This course helped increase my confidence level prior to taking the NPTE.
I failed my NPTE the first time and was completely devastated. I didn't know what to do so I started researching study classes. I am so happy I picked PT Final Exam. ALL of the instructors are amazing and break everything down in a way you will remember it. I love the format of the class and how it is a structured plan but it still worked with my crazy schedule. I feel like I learned so much more with PTFE than with just self-study. If you are reading this and thinking about PTFE "DO IT"! It is worth every penny to see the PASSED flash across the screen. You will not regret it!! You can pass this test and PT final exam will help you get there!
I just wanted to say how incredibly grateful I am that my best friend introduced me to your program! I knew there was no way that I would pass on my first attempt because every time I opened my review books I just got overwhelmed and gave up, but because of this program alone I passed with a score over 700! Thank you so much for the work that you guys do at PT Final Exam! You guys are the absolute best, and I have told so many of the current third and second year PT students at Wichita State about you because I can attest to the fact that your program works! Again, I just wanted to say “Thank you!” 🙂
Awesome review course! Passed the NPTE on my first try thanks to this great program! Would recommend to anyone!
I used PT final exam to help me study for my first attempt on the NPTE and I passed. I would say take this course if you need to be held accountable and feel uncertain about the NPTE. I lack a lot of confidence and I consider myself a poor test taker. I definitely felt more confident in myself and my test taking skills after this course. I appreciated the lower prices and the amount of material provided in this class. Personally, I signed up for the live lectures, which I never cared for. If you are the type of student you likes to ask a lot of questions and interact with the instructor, sign up for the live the lectures. However, if you are more like me and like getting through the PowerPoints fully without a lot of pauses for questions, choose the independent study. I felt the CCR were wonderfully done, and they really helped me with fun ways to remember material. I would definitely recommend this course to others, the staff really know what they are doing!!!!
This course was amazing! I was the student in PT school that studied for hours, but would still fail tests or not do as well as I had hoped. I had taken 2 PEAT’s that my school purchased for me, and although I had made an improvement on my own, I still was not where I needed to be to attempt the NPTE. This is when I asked previous students about some additional help/guidance, which lead me to PT Final Exam. This course 100% prepared me for the test by providing live lectures, which included sample questions with reviews, and opportunities to ask questions and receive answers in real time. All of the instructors provided a very positive and uplifting environment, which really helped me to stay focus and driven throughout the 10 weeks of studying. Additionally, each of my practice exam scores increased significantly throughout the course and I passed the NPTE on the first try! If any course can help you over this major hurdle, PT Final Exam can.
I would recommend enrolling in PT Final Exam's Live Course because it allows you to interact with the tutor and ask questions as he/she is presenting the material. This program helped me pass the NPTE on my 3rd attempt. I went from a 551 to 585 to 626. The material that is included in this program is amazing and helped me to study smarter and not harder! All of the tutors are very knowledgeable and are more than happy to help you on your journey to passing the NPTE. Will is the creator of this wonderful program and he is also very helpful in helping you reach your goals! Will has been extremely timely in returning all emails. You can tell that Will and the tutors are invested in helping and giving you all the tools to pass the NPTE. I am incredibly grateful for PT Final Exam and would recommend this program to EVERYONE on their journey to pass the NPTE!
PT Final Exam set me up with a great foundation to help me pass my boards. All the instructors were very supportive and went beyond amazing instruction to make sure each individual student would get the proper attention and clarification needed to pass the exam. All the tips and tricks helped me work through the exam when questions got tough. I can’t stress enough how great Will and the team were. Special shoutout to Alana and Arunima for guiding me in times of need.
if you are a foreign educated therapist like me , and not sure what to focus on ,where to start or what to study. Your search is done! stop searching and just do what I did, buy the independent study or live course whichever you fell like, don't spend time on the web looking for the answers, it's here. I bought the independent study because I missed the live course start , I had 7 weeks to study a full time job, that I work 5 days a week 40 hours , plus a toddler at home so my time was very , I mean very very limited! I watched the videos follow the instructions focus on where they focus and PASSED at my first attempt!! I never write reviews but it's the least I can do for Will and his team.
Coming out of school, I knew I needed some form of interactive studying rather than just reading Scorebuilders each day. The staff at PTFE were brilliant and they cover the material in a way that it is easy to understand. I took the live online course, and having those scheduled lectures and assignments were a good way to keep up with my studying. I will have to say that there is a ton of work that you have to put in during the first few weeks, since that's when the bulk of your studying will be. The last few weeks are pretty much for review and fine-tuning, and I thought the way the course was structured was brilliant. I passed the NPTE on my first attempt, so big thanks to Will and everyone else for their time and dedication. They really go far and beyond to answer your questions in a timely and friendly manner. 100% I would recommend this course, and would probably say it's one of the best investments I've made. Thanks again PTFE!
I signed up for the independent study course after taking a practice exam and not performing well on it. PTFE was exactly what I needed. My score increased with each practice exam I took after buying the course. This, in turn, increased my confidence, which is just as important as the test itself. I highly recommend this course.
This is a very valuable resource for people who need a little more structure and guidance with studying. I signed up for the live course, and in retrospect I probably should have gone with the independent study. The timing and format of the weekly live sessions weren't really for me and I ended up not participating as much as I had planned, though I definitely see the value in the live sessions. With that said, I would 100% do it again. The manual was extremely helpful, and the prerecorded videos on different topics that are part of the course were amazing and made a huge different in my understanding of a lot of different topics. I would end many long days of studying just watching videos while doing cardio at the gym, and it was nice to end the day feeling like I had learned something new presented in a way that I could retain. I passed with my first attempt! definitely recommend doing this course!
I have been a licensed physical therapist in Japan since 1999. I transferred my credits to the U.S., and I was qualified to sit the NPTE about 12 weeks before the exam in July 2019.
At first, I did not know where to begin studying for it, so I just bought TherapyEd, a review book with about 1,000 pages. However, it was too much information to review in about 12 weeks, and its content was a little boring to me, so I only took the practice exams with it. At the same time, I found PT Final Exam, and its study guide is very simplified, only 270 pages, so it's very easy and helpful to review!! The same goes for the online lectures where the instructors focus on important parts and give us useful tips on how to strategies the NPTE. Because of this, I passed it at my first attempt!! I strongly recommend taking PT Final Exam!!

I failed my first attempt. Days after that, I sent an email to Will to get a heads up on what is the best type of review for me. I took the independent study course and it was so so so so worth it. You handle your own time and you can do it in your own pace, you just have to be disciplined in handling your time. Thank you to everyone in the PTFE team, I finally passed my NPTE!!! FNL Wahooo WCFB!!!! The lecturers were very good and were very creative in delivering their topics, that's why after taking this course, you'll feel very confident. Aside from that, all of the lecturers motivated everyone to do their best and to give hope to those who are already burnout or tired. Thank you PTFE!! Big shoutout to Nirja and Alana!!
This course was the best course that I have taken. I have taken Scrobuilders and OS prep courses which only last two days and this course is much better. The live chat rooms and the ability to ask random questions to Will and the staff was extremely helpful. They cover all the material needed to pass the exam. The one practice test they offer is ok, but still beneficial to take to gain further knowledge. I took the exam 6 times and was able to pass with the help of PT final exam. The live chat tutors are helpful, upbeat and positive. I purchased the "till you pass" as I was uncertain with how I was going to do and I struggled on the practice exams. Wills approach to studying for the exam is spot on with guidance on how structure your study and maintain control of your studying which decreases stress. Furthermore, the team helps those who have learning disabilities and assist students on how to get accommodations which played a major factor in passing.
Overall I am very grateful for PT Final Exam. I purchased the independent study option about six weeks prior to taking the NPTE. I was overwhelmed with the amount of content on the test and struggling to make a good study plan and stay focused. The assignments and videos gave me direction and the practice questions helped me think about the material in a way that would be useful for the exam. And I passed on my first attempt! My only concerns are that there are quite a few discrepancies between the videos and the study guide/workbook answer key. There were also a few things taught that were just plain incorrect. And lots of typos in all of the materials which sometimes made things difficult to understand. I would recommend an edit of all the content to fix errors, typos, and discrepancies. However, when I emailed instructors with questions I did get a quick response, which is great! There are real live people here to help you. Despite a few qualms, I would still recommend this program because it really did help me to pass the NPTE.
