Robin Brunton –
The ‘purple book’ was most helpful for me when I was studying for the CHT exam. I work with 4 other OT’s and we meet monthly and go through a chapter in the book as an inservice time. It is a very practical resource!

Great book with lots of good information on the upper extremity. The discussions after each question allow you to review concepts and to use it as a reference for treating patients. The CD-ROM is a nice bonus tool for self-review.
I used the 1st purple book more than this one at this time. I’m using the computer module (Basics & Beyond) right now. Keep up the good work in helping us study for the exam!
I thought the course was great!!!Very informative, and full of information
