IMPORTANT NOTES ON PREPARING FOR THE EXAM
Your Expectations - The EFT Foundational Level Exam is intended to test your understanding of the material in the EFT Foundational Library, but may not be exactly what you expect. It’s true that EFT is easy to learn, and even children can use it, but that applies to the basics and doesn’t necessarily produce consistent or deep results. In order to produce the kind of results you need as a professional, you have to go deeper. The videos are absolutely packed with information and anyone who has approached this exam with an open mind has walked away with a surprising amount of new material. We realize that many people just want to pass the exam and go about their business, but we want more than that for you! Our first priority is that you get as much from these videos as possible, and we aren’t comfortable offering Certification without that assurance. By really using the Study Guide and applying yourself to the material, you will walk away with a lot more training, much better results, and with any luck, an EFT Certification to hang on your wall. Here’s a tip: Put all of your expectations, previous experience and preconceived notions aside and expect to learn something new!

Specific Content - There are questions on the exam that will point to specific content from the sessions like key phrases, client responses, Gary’s decision making process, and the techniques or approaches that were used as a result. The easiest way to see how well someone understands EFT is to watch their decision making process during a session (ie. which direction to go, which questions to ask, or which phrases to use). With this in mind, the exam will test how well you can evaluate and understand Gary’s decision making process, because that’s where all the pieces come together. Please use the Study Guide to help you review the sessions thoroughly, and be sure you understand the “why” behind each step. Here’s a tip: Just as looking for new aspects is also a way to test your results, be aware that, in many cases, one approach or technique can be chosen to accomplish several goals. There are other discussions on the videos for which specific content will be used on the exam. All of those discussions are listed in the Study Guide, so be sure you engage yourself with the points being made and do the suggested exercises. If you make the effort to adopt the new perspectives offered, you will remember them much more easily. Memorization - There is a LOT of material on the videos for this exam, but passing it will not be possible by simply memorizing it all. In fact, if you try to memorize everything you will likely fail the exam. Why? Because we are testing your command of the concepts. We are not interested in your ability to memorize. We expect that if you learn it properly and then use it in practice correctly, most of the material will become second nature to you. Further, if you are watching the sessions to see how completely you can understand them, you should be able to remember the key elements of each session even a year later. Just in case, take good notes, review the material again before taking the exam and be prepared to review a session or two in the extra time allotted. Test Anxiety - Test anxiety is a very broad term that can include a variety of different issues. However, we have found that people with any significant test anxiety have a very difficult time passing this exam. They try to memorize the material rather than understanding it, and in general, are worrying too much to think clearly about the questions, or even the material itself during the study process. We recommend that you put your EFT skills to work and handle any test anxiety before you even register for the exam. If necessary, you might enroll the help of someone more experienced. Either way, it will only be a step in the right direction to “do your own work” and use EFT to resolve your issues.

That is just to be sure you apply the concept to yourself as well as the world around you. so it will be very important to set your previous experience aside so that you can effectively absorb the material. The combination of the tools he teaches in these videos will offer valuable insight into Gary’s “art of delivery” and his process for uncovering core issues with his clients. You may notice that the terms the Writing on your Walls and the Writing on our Walls are used interchangeably. but the exam will not cover that material. The Palace of Possibilities handout is useful for following along and could provide additional perspectives to help you understand the concepts. can’ts. the exam will test your knowledge of the version presented here.

Pay attention to that section and see how may examples you can identify from your own life where the Writing on your Walls has created a similar challenge. Be sure you understand that the Writing on our Walls is in charge of all things emotional…and by the way.

The purpose of a reframe is to introduce new possibilities rather than to decide on a new direction.that mean to you?” (in earlier examples). so try to identify which audience members need to go deeper and see how far Gary gets with his questions. Note that EFT does not install anything new. It will be helpful to make a list of the examples offered on the video. The fribdipple example – Note the comment on how the Writing on our Walls will come out of our mouth and reveal what is affecting our potential. and using words like “maybe” or “consider the possibility” with your reframes will keep you from misusing them. ________________________ ________________________ ________________________ _________________________ _________________________ _________________________ 27 . From there. and allow our naturally positive nature to surface. • My consistent thoughts become my reality – This small section contains a valuable piece of EFT wisdom that you will need for more advanced work. note how easy it is for people to rely on their own Writing as though it were the only truth. but there is an art to that application which we will address in the Intermediate Library.
