Will Crane PT, DPT, OCS & Mark Stevens PT

I am a foreign-trained PT who graduated from the University of Liverpool, England in 2012. I began my therapy journey as a PTA in 2006 before returning to school to become a licensed Physical Therapist. I currently work clinically in an outpatient setting where I specialize in Amputee rehab. This population is awesome, from the runners to those who never thought they would walk again.

On the coaching side, I have been with PT Final Exam for almost 5 years. When you tune into my lectures you will see that I am a visual learner. I am dyslexic and find “normal” study very difficult to grasp. I have tried to develop ways to learn and remember difficult topics and put a different spin on it, with videos (I like to use my kids), pneumonics, and tables. I have used the PT Final Exam platform to coach live classes and university cohorts which has been a lot of fun. If you and your school want to go through boards together shoot me an email at [email protected] I can make that happen.

Being a foreign-trained PT, I have been through the long frustrating process that goes with transferring a license to the USA. I worked as a PT in England, then had to take a break for two and a half years while I gained additional credits and fulfilled everything I needed to sit for this exam. I had multiple attempts at this exam where I came close, but I just could not get that PASS score. I finally saw PASS and obtained my license after completing a term with PT Final Exam in 2015.

My aim is to give you as many “Ohh, I get it now” moments as I can and help you understand topics you may not have understood in the past, so when you sit for the exam you can be confident you will see PASS.

More recently I launched a branch of PT Final Exam called Max Assist PT, this platform is focused on the transition from student to PT. I want to make this transition as easy as I can and using this platform we will have blog posts, interview tips and we also have The Max Assist PT Podcast check it out.

“BEST REVIEW OUT THERE!!!! I cannot emphasize enough how amazing this course is! I did the “live” review and it truly was worth every penny! Will and the other instructors taught me how to study and helped with pointing out the highlights of the main topics which needed to be known for the test. On the PEAT I made a 608 and pulled off 713 on my first attempt on the NPTE! Do yourself a huge favor and enroll into this course! You won’t regret it!!!!”

- Karinda DPT

"...Using PTFE as my main study source helped me score an 800 on my exam, and I don't think it was a coincidence. I have recommended PTFE to my classmates who are taking the July exam, and I recommend it to anyone reading this review as well!"

-Sarah DPT

How to Pass the NPTE

Whether you are on your first attempt or your final attempt, PT Final Exam can help you get over this hurdle.

You see, to pass the NPTE, you have to think like the NPTE.

What I mean by this is that those students who are successful on the NPTE are ones who learn the content and then learn how to apply it to novel situations.

In this course, we go over NPTE practice questions, patient case studies, and material review to make sure that you have everything ready for test day.

Live Webinars

Structured like a university course (but much more convenient, interactive, and awesome), the live webinars will help guide you through the essential content of the exam. Because the exam is clinically-based, you must have a firm grasp on how to apply your textbook knowledge into novel, clinical scenarios.


When you have a question, you need a real PT to help. PT Final Exam has a team of licensed PT coaches who can help answer your questions! This feature of this online review course sets us apart from the rest of the NPTE preparation world. Discussion board, email, social media–we get your questions answered!

Videos, Videos, and more Videos

This crash course contains not only live webinars (and their recordings) going over key MSK topics, but also provides a whole mini-course on Gait Analysis ($99 value!).
