I don't know if this is a good resource or not BUT I do know that in choosing any resource you might consider the following. Has the person the expertise to present information about such a topic? In other words, it is not unusual to hire someone to research and write about a topic as if they were an expert. Secondly, is the author a credentialed practitioner who has taken the exam written about. If not, I would suggest you look for help elsewhere. Thirdly, a bank of questions will never ensure knowledge and application of content on an exam. You need to have the knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology, massage theory and application as opposed to studying a test bank of questions. In many cases, like the test bank that suggests it is made for all state and national exams for massage therapy, it just doesn't suffice. In Ohio, you would require much more than this test bank of questions.

Be critical of a "too good to be true" offer! It usually is.

Check out my home page and my education, credentials, and experience in providing exam study guides for the national certification exams including the MBLEx, and the Ohio massage therapy exam. Good luck!

Paul,

No I have not. But, I am acquainted with this company. If you look on their web site, they offer study guides for many different kinds of exams. Evidently, he hires a team of people to write test questions and study guides and I doubt seriously that any of them have a massage background. I have seen their personal trainer study guide. A student of mine had bought it. It was pretty poor as far as quality and content.

So, for what it is worth, try to find someone providing a study guide who is licensed/certified in massage and has actually taken the exam. I have both. And if you have questions, I'm a real, live, honest-to-goodness person you can ask!

Kim

Kim,
I'm getting ready to take this test as well and was looking for a good study guide. Can you suggest a good study guide for this exam (MBLEx) ? I think you are correct in having someone who is actually a massage therapist and who has taken the test create the study guide.
Thanx

I finally passed the national exam after my 3rd tried. The last time I bought a study guide called Don't Panic! Questions & Answers to help you pass the massage therapy national exam off of Amazon. I think it was like $20. It helped tremendously!1

I'M TAKING IT FOR SECOND TIME NEXT WEEK, YOU SHOULD FOCUS ON CELL STRUCTURE A LOT, DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS FOR DIFFERENT CONDITIONS, AND MANY QUESTIONS LIKE ASSESSMENT, EX. A CLIENT HAS THIS OR THAT, PAIN HERE, WHAT WILL BE YOUR BEST APROACH? I'M STUDYING THROUGH MASSAGE PREP, BUT IT'S TOO COMPLEX AND REVIEW SHOW ONLY UNTIL YOU GET OFF, ONCE YOU GET OFF, YOU NEED TO START AGAIN, REVIEW WITH CORRECTED ANSWERS WON'T SHOW ANYMORE.

I will agree with most of the opinions stated so far. I did purchase the Secrets and found them to be an overwhelming mountain of straight data, most of which I have not seen on either MBLEx or NCBTMB. Plus, I am an educator as well as a licensed professional and have never encountered any kind of attitude that was 'secretive' about massage therapy. We are an open and direct profession that encourages collaboration, camaraderie, and support of one another. I have been in education for almost 25 years and have colleagues that have been on test writing committees for both MBLEx and NCBTMB and I have NEVER known of anyone to hold "secrets" in regard to education. It just goes against the basic grain of our attitudes and philosophy as a profession.
