    Thank you again for an ingenenious book that is thought provoking and really allows for you to extrapolate in order to learn the material. Truly a work of art.

  3. Ainslie Kriston OTR/L

    This is the best purchase I have made. It is very through and is helping me study for the CHT exam. I am sharing several chapters with our PT’s and ATC’s. It is a good review and teaching tool for them. I also plan on using several questions with my OT students.

  4. Cheryl Mandel OTR/L CHT

    I am relieved that I passed the exam!

    I used both editions of your purple book
    with the CD questions to review.

    I also had some courses and CDROMs of your
    courses to study from as well as Rehab of the Hand
    (Yellow) read cover to cover and the recent
    Hand Journals.

    I feel like I know alot more now!

    Thanks………………..

    Susan and Nancy-
    First of all, I would like to give you all a huge thanks for helping me to pass the CHT exam this year!! I used your Basics and Beyond CD as well as the “purple book” along with some other references and felt very prepared. The practice tests were also well worth the money.
    I would also like more information about helping at the Philadelphia Conference. I am really interested in attending this year, it would be my first time. I have been to the Indiana conference and heard alot of good things about the Phil. conference. Just let me know.

    Nicole Yates, OTR/L, CHT
