McGraw-Hill's NPTE (National Physical Therapy Examination) (Lange)

McGraw-Hill's NPTE (National Physical Therapy Examination) (Lange)
Mark Dutton | 2009-03-10 00:00:00 | McGraw-Hill Medical | 1314 | Physical Therapy


Everything you need to pass the NPTE on your first try is right here! This all-in-one study guide gives you a concise review of the curriculum that's consistent with the NPTE content outline. You'll also find a CD-ROM with 500 exam-simulating Q&As. It adds up to the most comprehensive, confidence-boosting package for acing the exam!

This score-boosting all-in-one package gives you:

  • Coverage that spans the entire physical therapy curriculum - and all the content tested on the NPTE
  • Quick-study content review format
  • Exam-style questions and answers at the end of each chapter
  • CD-ROM with 500 exam-format questions and answers that simulates the real exam

The material in the text is very comprehensive, and covers all facets of the curriculum requirements. The downside is the

accompanying CD that has (2) practice exams. It contains multiple errata, mainly typos and incorrect answers to approximately 10-15 questions. Again, great text, can be an excellent reference; poor CD.
I purchased this book instead of the O'sullivan's and Giles' review books. I found this book lacked the necessary information that needed to be applied on the boards. I was given the O'sullivan's and Giles' after a couple of months using the dutton and ended up being blown away w/ how much more in depth and will organized both of these books were compared to the dutton. The O'sullivan is very detailed oriented and has an excessive amount of info along w/ more difficult exam questions. The Giles' has a good balance of both. In the end, move on from this review book.
The academic section of the book has useful information, but the exam questions are weak and not reflective of the more applied questions used on the current national exam. The book was too expensive given the exam questions.
In my opinion, this Dutton book is better than the O'sullivan's and Giles' review books. This book is a detailed and easy to read review with a lot of clinically relevant information. I am not a big fan of the questions after each chapter, although they are helpful. However, the CD is fairly decent with question styles geared towards the NPTE exam. Definitely a smart investment for this book and CD. Highly recommended.
