NPTE Study Tips < study tips.html!

This information was posted by someone in the forum last year. I liked to revive this NPTE TIPS again, which may be usefull for someone. ood luckNPTE E!"# TIPS$ %e&uirements$ '. " basic "natomy book.

Personal notes$ '. make notes on few topics for last moment refernces and also some points which you come across reading some books or if someone e3plains. (.flash cards....helpful for those who re&uire several revision of points. ).make a list of topics which you feel are ur strengths and weaknesses. 9nderstanding the e3am$ There will be total (.4 &uestions out of which .4 are non:scorable but you cannot make out which one;s so you need to focus on all the (.4. out of the (.4, '44 &uestions would definitely be very easy asking about basic concepts, another .4 are moderately tough and .4 are considerably tough. <INT$ so make sure you score full marks in the easy &uestions. you have to read all chapters thoroughly, no e3ceptions even if you do not like any chapter. This e3am is not about testing your memory power or memori=ing all the points from the books, this is about common sense, practical understanding of a situation, actually visuali=ing a patient in front of you if you have e3perience or imagining a situation if you have no e3perience in PT. Every &uestion which you encounter visuali=e yourself as a P.T and the patient infront of you waiting for your treatment, would you afford to make a mistake, I 50NT T<IN,, so in order to pass this e3am you should visualise a clinical setting in ur mind, if you had e3perince then its more easy. There is no point in saying the e3am is tough or easy because most of the &uestions are actualy situations in clinical setting and when you start working with a patient you cannot say > this is a tough case >, its about knowing what to do and how to do and what not to do.So focus right on clinical scenarios and not on worrying about the difficultly. Several revisions are re&uired to understand and remember a concept, so do not get upset or panic
