    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

    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!

    Susan and Nancy,
    Thank you for writing the practice exams. I used them to prepare for the 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

    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!

    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.
