    Are your study schedules updated in accordance with the 2013-2017 NPTE Content Outline?

    Thanks for your resource,

      Hi Dave,

      Great question. The two generic study schedules under the “NPTE Study Schedules” at the top of the page are based on the chapters contained within two popular NPTE review study guides, PTEXAM by Scott Giles, and TherapyEd’s Review and Study Guide by Susan O’Sullivan. We simply outlined an example of how someone could go about delegating their time to each chapter. Of course, these being two major NPTE review sources, it is expected that they cover material in accordance with the NPTE content outline.

      The 2013-2017 content outline refers to the distribution of questions that you can expect to see on the NPTE. Our practice NPTE adheres to this “blueprint” very closely. We do our best to make our practice exam as similar in style and outline to the NPTE as possible, of course without containing any actual NPTE material.

      Also, our NPTE review courses employ this blueprint to dictate how we guide our students to prepare for the exam and allocate their time when studying.

      I hope that answers your question! Let me know if there’s anything we can do to help you prepare for the NPTE or if you’d like to talk with us about setting up a personalized review plan.

      Trevor Lohman PT, DPT
