Practice Exam (5)

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 used both the purple book as well as three practice exams. They were my best means of studying the material and they challenged my knowledge as well as directed me to areas that I needed to improve in my understanding. I am positive that your study materials were essential and invaluable to my level of preparedness on exam day. Thank you so much for setting me up for success, I am eternally grateful, Stephanie Wu .

! 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: Thank you for all your support and extremely thorough CHT practice exams as I PASSED!! Your detailed questions coupled with rationales for correct answers helped me identify areas for further study. The practice exam process was empowering and educational. Your customer support is amazing! Thank you again, Cheryl Pagel, MS OTR/L CHT

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

I loved these exams, they were an excellent way to prepare for the Hand Certification. I would highly recommend these to anyone preparing for their CHT.

-all 5 practice exams were excellent tools to get prepared for online exam.
I did not find exam 5 as helpful as the other exams. I found some of the questions to be less relevant while others were overly specific. Thank you.

Excellent exam. Price reasonable.
