Practice Exam (2)

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.

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

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 .

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

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!

Highly recommend this practice test...helped me pass the cht on the first try.
Cassie, OTR/L, CHT  
Covers many of the clinical elements necessary for the exam, as well as areas I had not yet covered. It helped increase my confidence level in the areas I was prepared for.
Very helpful in studying for the CHT exam
Sheri Stroppel, P.T., O.C.S.  
Both practice exams 1 and 2 were tough, but very helpful in preparing me for what to expect for the real exam. I love the references after each question because it really helps to direct me through all of the material needed to study for an exam of this magnitude!
Lisa Kozden, MOT, OTR/L  
I found the tests to be very helpful in guiding and focusing my studying, especially as exam time got closer. They were an important part of my success with the exam.
Kristi DeMars, OTR/L, CHT  
My only hope is that the questions in the review are like the questions on the test. I found the practice exams to be moderately difficult the first time around and then minimally so after I reviewed the material I got wrong.
well thought out test questions. I will be using these materials in the future.

Thank you for writing the practice exams. I used them to prepare for the 2005 CHT exam. It helped me realize what areas I needed to look over again. It also helped decrease the stress of taking the actual test. I felt I knew what to expect and I passed! Your resources helped me become a CHT! Thank you,
Julie Evans, OTR/L CHT  
I found the sample tests very helpful as they helped me identify areas of weakness and strengths. I found the questions to be worded much as the "real" test questions.

Just wanted to thank you for the Purple Book and the practice exams. They weren't the only resources I used to study, but they were among the most helpful! I really think the exams were the reason I passed the first time! I was hesitant to purchase them wondering if they would be worth the money, but I soon found that my fears were not necessary. I learned new information from them as well as having a way to find my weak spots so I could focus my studying when time was getting limited!
