A welcome from PT Final Exam Founder, Dr. Will Crane PT, DPT, OCS


Over 20,000 PT's and PTA's served (and counting!)

About Me

Hey! I'm Will Crane PT, DPT, OCS, and I'm the head coach and founder of PT Final Exam!

Thanks for taking the time to read through our site and do your research on what NPTE prep program would be the best fit for you.

Why You Can Trust PT Final Exam

I started PT Final Exam nearly a decade ago with the mission to make the most awesome NPTE prep course available. I've been able to develop a winning strategy that has mentored >20,000 PT's and PTA's as they increased their scores and PASSED the NPTE!

My system is all about doing what it takes to pass the exam. I give you the tools and strategy to make this next attempt become your last! (that sounds a bit ominous :)

My Strategy

You need 2 keys to really pass the NPTE:

  • Study strategies
  • Content review

I go over these both in detail in this exclusive coaching course. Not only will you have the right plan for attacking the content--we also give you hours and hours of content review!

What Sets PT Final Exam Apart?

There are a few things.

  1. I am a huge believer in not only learning to "pass the NPTE," but to also become an excellent clinician! I still treat patients, and I recently studied for and passed the OCS exam. I really believe in not only "talking the talk, but walking the walk." Most of the other NPTE programs don't have this advantage.
  2. PT Final Exam is dedicated to an inclusive and ethical learning environment. No trolls allowed! Studying with a group can be daunting--sometimes there are cranky cranks that aren't nice. We support you and guide you in a postive, fun, and innovative environment.
  3. Fully FSBPT and copyright compliant! There are a bunch of shady NPTE prep courses out there that use pirated content and questionable questions. We work hard to create new content and help protect you from potential issues when using pirated textbooks and content. You can be banned from taking the NPTE forever, so it is simply not worth it.
  4. Excellent LMS and webinar platforms. I use only the best of the best to deliver the videos, content, practice exams, and webinars. These are all enterprise-level tools.
  5. University partnerships. We help coach a number of university cohorts across the USA, and universities trust us to get their students through the NPTE.

Who is a good fit for PT Final Exam?

If you struggle with standardized exams, this is the course for you. Whether you're on your first attempt or 6th attempt, this course can get you through! I specialize in coaching students who need extra assistance in passing this exam. Foreign-trained, nontraditional, multiple attempts, learning disabilities, etc. I've worked with a huge variety of students, and I can help you!

What is the most important part of this course?

If you need a small group, mentored approach, this is the course for you.

In this course, you get:

  • Weekly small-group study sessions with PT Final Exam Founder Will Crane PT, DPT, OCS (me!)
  • Exclusive access to 1-on-1 power phone calls with Will
  • Access to the full Crash Course series, plus the full video library of mini-courses
  • Exclusive access to a private messaging group to get your questions answered ASAP
  • A full 12 months of access (just in case you need a little extra time!). We complete a full cycle every 3 months, so you can sign up anytime for any NPTE, and you won't miss a thing!

Why Should You Choose the VIP(T) Live Online Review Course?

With years of research and experience under our belts, we are hands down the most AWESOME NPTE prep course available! Some of the innovative features include:

  • Out-of-this-world customer service!
  • A no-nonsense, driven approach.
  • Become a better clinician, guaranteed!
  • Taught by top-tier clinicians who don't just talk the talk--we walk the walk!
  • Enterprise University-Level learning management system
  • Small group study sessions

This is the original NPTE coaching course, and we can help you succeed on the NPTE!

We are also the only dedicated NPTE review course offering unedited customer reviews! (Not just case studies or testimonials). This stuff actually works, and we’re proud of it!

With the PT Live NPTE Review Course, you will gain access to over 80 hours of content related to the NPTE. This includes pre-recorded modules designed to help you crush the NEW lymphatics section and rock gait analysis.

Plus, did I mention that the course comes with >1000 pages of written material, an on-demand video library, and access to NPTE experts to get your questions answered. All at a fraction of the cost of other courses!

How the Course Works

In our VIP(T) Live Online Review Course, we combine the power of a hybrid synchronous/asynchronous model. This means that we have a series of live lectures combined with many hours of on-demand content. As you probably have noticed, most universities are beginning to adopt this model of coursework to more effectively and efficiently deliver content.

In this course, we meet on a weekly basis at the beginning of the class. In these main coaching sessions, we go over PRACTICE QUESTIONS, case studies, and general content review. We then assign out portions of the workbook and on-demand lectures to review at your own pace during the week. We then reconvene the following week to review any student questions that may have arisen during the week.

Thus, we combine the synchronous and asynchronous material to achieve improved outcomes. This also results in a reduced cost, pricing us at LESS THAN HALF what other courses cost with DOUBLE THE CONTENT. We have helped many thousands of students PASS the NPTE (including the instructors of a couple of the other NPTE prep programs) :), and we can help you, too!

Can this Course Increase My Score?

Mike, DPT says, "PT Final Exam was one of the main sources that I utilized when preparing for the October 2019 NTPE. The advice that Will provided on how to set up an individualized study/review plan really set the tone for the 8 weeks that I had to review for the exam. While the weekly content reviews were invaluable, I also took advantage of the bonus videos and supplemental content. I knew that I was weaker in certain areas than others, and devoted extra time to reviewing the bonus content on individual topics as needed. I was fortunate enough to pass with an 800 in October, and believe that PT Final Exam Played a vital role in that result! I am very thankful for PT Final Exam and the effect that it had on my pursuit of physical therapy licensure."

What does a course like this cost?

At PT Final Exam, we feel like NPTE prep shouldn't break the bank.

Typically, courses with this much live content and and length of access run anywhere from $3000-$6000.

In this course, you get over DOUBLE the content for less than half the price!

“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!!!!”

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.

Need State-Required NPTE Remediation?

We can help! As one of the few approved commercial NPTE prep courses on the market, we can help you fulfill any state required NPTE remediation requirements. The exact details vary by state, so be sure to double check with your state board to make certain you are completing their checklist. Upon completion, we can issue a certificate of participation to assist with your board requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?
Default access is 12 months.
How is the VIP(T) LIVE course different from the INDEPENDENT course?
The VIP(T) LIVE Course is much like a university course with access to instructors and live lectures. The INDEPENDENT Course has a video library that is completed independently. The Independent Study Course contains about 50% of the quantity of prerecorded content as the Full Live Course and no live webinars.
How is PT Final Exam Different From Other NPTE Prep Providers?
With a huge emphasis on customer service, you’ll find that the resources are extremely robust. At PT Final Exam, we emphasize test application and clinical thinking. In addition, our attention to customer service is unparalleled. Plus, we offer about DOUBLE the content at HALF the price.
I need this for state required remediation. Can I get a certificate of completion?
Absolutely. With a good-faith effort to participate in the live online course, you can get a certificate of completion upon request.
What is the pass-rate for participants in PT Final Exam Courses?
I’m glad you asked! No other test-prep provider likes to talk about this one. To summarize: Full participators have a >90% pass rate. These students are the ones who honestly work hard to complete the assignments and attend the live classes. This is an amazing pass rate when you consider a few things: Many students who take my review courses do so after 1 failed attempt. You could say that these are high-risk test takers. Many students who take my course are seeking to renew their license after letting it lapse. I’ve had many, many students who are 3,5,10, and even 25 years out of school who take this course and successfully pass the exam. Many of my students are foreign-trained (which has an industry pass rate of 30%) When you take that all together, a pass rate of 90% is awesome! For those who are interested in my global numbers, the pass rate is ~70%. This includes individuals who do not fully participate or who choose not to complete the assignments as indicated. This is still pretty awesome when you consider the number of high-risk students I work with on a daily basis. These numbers I have come from post-exam surveys that I have been giving my students for the past 5 years. This stuff really work! Read the reviews–you’ll love what you see!
What is your average score increase?
Related to the previous question, most students see a score increase of ~50 points from previous attempts. My record holders increased their score >120 points!
Do you record the live sessions for later review? What happens if I miss a live lecture?
No problem! Each session is recorded and posted for your review. Thus, whether you need to miss a live lecture or you just want to review it again, you are covered either way!
Do I get access to the crash course series with this course?
Yes! You'll get access to the current series of crash courses going over major topics like MSK, NM, and CP on the exam.

The VIP(T) Live Online Review Course is the web's highest rated NPTE prep program with hundreds and hundreds of 5-star reviews gained serving thousands of PT students over the past decade. Some programs charge well over $2000 for half of what you'll receive in this course. Our goal is to help you pass the NPTE effectively and efficiently.

“As I progressed through your course, I was scoring higher on practice exams than I ever had. The sense of community provided by the other students and instructors helped me to rebuild the confidence I once had. I was actually comparing and differentiating the characteristics of pathologies, practicing special tests, and reviewing textbooks unlike past attempts. Everything about the PT Final Exam course worked for me! I improved my score of 597 on my second attempt, to 706 on my third. A 109-point improvement!”
