Practice Exam (3)

Like most CHT exam candidates, I was so overwhelmed when I started to study. I really didn't know where to start, but the Purple Review book allowed me to make a schedule that I was able to follow, and made sure I wasn't missing important topics. The most valuable part of the Purple book is the explanations and the helpful hints between the questions. I would often use those to make flash cards and solidify the points. I also purchased 5 practice tests from Exploring Hand Therapy. There is nothing that prepares you for a sit down examination more than blocking your schedule for a few hours and making yourself take an exam. The tests were very similar to the actual exam, and it also helped me to review what topics I needed to study more. There were a few instances where I had questions or needed clarification, and Susan was so responsive to my emails, it was like talking to a coworker! I highly recommend any of the material from handtherapy.com if you are preparing for the CHT exam.

The Certified Hand Therapy exam is comprised primarily of clinical reasoning questions. According to the Hand Therapy Certification Commission, the exam content "reflects current practices of the domains of hand therapy including relevant tasks and knowledge areas that have been identified as essential to the practice of hand therapy." In studying for the CHT exam I used several resources that were listed on the HTCC website. Out of all the CHT educational materials available, the one that helped me the most and ultimately assisted in giving me the clinical reasoning skills and training required to pass the CHT test is the "The Upper Extremity Rehabilitation, 3rd edition, (The Purple Book). The PB is up-to-date with current relevant information, excellent illustrations and photographs with comprehensive and easy to understand content in a question/answer format. As an adjunct to the purple book, the Basics and Beyond online programs are excellent tools to not only sharpen your CHT knowledge base but will help give you the competitive edge in the critical reasoning skills imperative in passing the exam. Practice tests are an important component of the CHT preparatory process. With the complexity and degree of difficulty of the CHT exam, practice tests will help the CHT candidate appreciate and understand the importance of developing vital skills with the ability to solve complex upper extremity problems, finding the optimum solution under a definitive time limit. I highly recommend, the 6th edition test on the Exploring Hand Therapy website. This particular test is the only one on the market today that closely aligns with the format of the CHT exam. Lastly, I would take advantage of other upper extremity programs offered through this website such as the free content segments, cadaver series, Treatment2go tips and Hot Stuff section with innovative products and courses to keep the CHT candidate and current CHTs abreast of the latest information and techniques for better performance in the field of upper extremity rehabilitation. All the best, Juliette Matis

The materials I used to study for the CHT exam are the Purple book, Rehab of the Hand, The Quiz Corner and I purchased 2 practice exams. I found all of these materials to be of value when studying for the exam, especially the practice exams. Best, Nicole Pizzolato OTR/L, CHT

I purchased the set of 3 practice exams and I can definitely say that these helped me to identify my weaker areas of study for the test. I would definitely recommend purchasing more than one of the practice exams for variation of questioning for anyone who is preparing for the CHT certification test. I recently passed the exam in May of 2017 and know that these practice helped me study in a more organized fashion. Steven Rodgers, OTR/L, CHT

! I was very excited (and relieved!) to have passed. I definitely feel that the courses I took through EHT (Basics and Beyond, the cadaver courses, and Paul's shoulder course) as well as the purple book were great resources and helped me to be successful. So, thank you for putting out such great information to help advance our profession! Beverly

Dear Susan, I can't thank you enough for the CHT practice exams. I'm certain they played a huge part in me passing! I was initially hesitant to invest in them, but I am so glad that I did. The questions on the exams truly helped me to develop an outline of subjects to study more in-depth that was absolutely accurate and practical for the actual exam. The money that I spent on the practice exams saved me from having to invest in taking the exam a second time as well as freed me up to enjoy my summer (not studying)! A lot of people study for over a year for the exam, but with the help of your tests and the ASHT prep course, I was able to study for just 5 months and pass on my first try! THANKS AGAIN!!!

Excellent material to study. It was harder than the actual test. I was definitely prepared.

Good practice
Hello! I just wanted to thank you for the excellent content that Exploring Hand Therapy offers. I had a 3 person study group that read the Hunter book chapters that corresponded with the "purple book" chapters in preparation for the CHT exam. The purple book offered a great review of the material that we read in the Hunter books and guided our discussions and helped us to learn the material, not memorize it. I also purchased 3 practice tests, which I believe were a huge part in me passing the CHT exam on my first attempt! I just wanted to thank you for all of the hard work and dedication that you both put in to the field of hand therapy! Thanks again!

The materials that Exploring Hand Therapy provides is the best, in my opinion, that I studied and played a major role in my understanding and studying such a large amount of material. Thank you again.
The phrasing of the test questions helps prepare you for the actual CHT exam.

What was coved had good content and reflected the type questions on the exam, but the practice exam did not have a good coverage of all domains tested.
Nancy and Susan, I just passed the CHT Exam. I wanted to say Thank you for all that you do. I have multiple CDs and I did the practice tests. The tests allowed me to discover my weaknesses and they helped me read and answer the questions. I am one of your biggest marketers. I tell colleagues and friends about your web site. Thank you again. Jerelyn Grader

great review for the test
Very helpful preparation for the CHT exam. Able to learn strengths and weaknesses.
I purchased all 3 exams. They were extremely beneficial in my studying regime. They were more representative of the CHT exam questions than the Purple Book. Best of all, I PASSED!
