Believe me, I know. The FSBPT requires each exam candidate to have a thorough knowledge of the material published in the NPTAE Content Outline. This means that each student must study and know the topics contained therein. Many students who do not pass the test on their first attempt underestimate the depth and scope of material that is tested on the NPTAE. Do not be one of those!

How to approach the NPTE-PTA

The FSBPT is clear in its development standards for the NPTE. The questions used for the exam all come from common, core physical therapy textbooks (Magee, O’Sullivan, etc.)

Each question is written based on the information found in these textbooks. That being said, NPTE questions always have some sort of clinical spin or PT application on them.

This means that not only do you need to know the information in the PT textbooks. You need to also understand it well enough to apply it to novel situations.

One of my favorite ways to teach material is via case studies. As we deconstruct a real PT case, we can talk about how to apply the textbook knowledge to the case. This not only helps students get to know the content on the exam, it also helps them apply the material in PT setting, thus becoming more proficient clinicians.

Key strategies to pass the NPTE include:

  • Use the core PT textbooks as a foundation
  • Practice applying content to clinical scenarios
  • Interact with the material actively (workbooks are great!)
  • Digest the content and try explaining it aloud
  • Learn the blueprint for the NPTE so there are no surprises

We go over all of these things in our NPTE review courses. You’ll be able to easily see why we’ve been so successful in helping students achieve their dreams and pass the NPTE!
