Can you still challenge the PTA board exam? If so how do you go about it?

MonikFEPT in Burbank, Illinois said: Hi My name is Monika. I am a foreign educated PT. Does anyone know if it is possible to get the licence as a PTA in the state of Indiana, after being not substantially equivalent with PT in the state of Illinois? Credential evaluation by FCCPT,does anyone know what to do in this kind of situation?

Monica, hello. Did you ever receive you license and if you did what did you do to study? Here is my personal email address riss18@juno.com
I plan to take the exam in 2 months or so and could use a word of advice.
Thank you

I believe 3 times total, after which you will have to take some clinical courses, according to the APTA.

Theresa in Denton, Texas said: I have failed the Texas licensure exam twice and am having a difficult time finding tutoring, review courses that don't cost an arm and a leg, or even CE that is relevant. Any information would be great.

Look up scott giles PTA prep course information. They offer flash cards that are awesome for only 40 something dollars! He did a 2 day prep course for our class this semester and he tells you how to study for it the most effective way. It was great! Good luck!!

Joseph, You serious? How could working as a tech look better on your resume than working as a PTA?

Theresa, Hi. How long has it been since Scott Giles gave you information about taking the test? And did he say that studying from the flash cards could prepare someone thoroughly for the exam?
Thank you for the pointers and if you have anymore, could you please pass them on. I would rather contact you through another email address so I don't have to give mine out to so many others.
Thank you again.

You can't be serious lol. If you are a licensed PTA, why do you still want to work as an aide? wake up man.

HELP!!!
I have taken the PTA exam 3 times and failed with a 557, 582, and last a 586!
I can't seem to get where I need to be. My lowest score was in professional issues.
Is there anything out there that is helpful in passing the exam? I looked into a review course but it is $895 plus hotel and meals which is out of my range.

Thanks for any advice...

How many shots do we get at the exam? What are the rules? Why are so many people failing it? I'll be taking it in Feb after I graduate. All this failing dialog has me a bit worried. How about some feedback from people who have passed. I guess if you have passed and moved on your not concerned with these forums any longer. 99% of these exam /PTA forums are about getting support from failing so often. I'd like to believe more people pass than fail. We just don't here about them. Right? Ughhh! I'm thinking this whole Forum is bringing me down and making me loose confidence. The exam cannot be that difficult. I'm aware it's a PT exam for the majority of it. So what. I'd just like some rationale behind all these people failing it. Waiting too long to take the test? Poor grades during school? A poor school to begin with? Cmon, what is it, so we don't make the same mistake.

I couldn't agree more. Waste of money, waste of time, waste of time away from home and all it cost to stay at the hotel, food etc. I got nothing out of it.

Hi Laura, Did you take the therapy team review one? I am suppose to take it in june and yes is very expensive. Too much..

Michael in Kingston, New York

I am registered to take the therapy team review class on June 4-13, 2010. I have to take the NPTAE. I've been hearing mixed reviews regarding this class. It's a lot of time and money and I'm concerned that I'm not going to get much out of the class. Have any of you taken the review class and if so can you tell me if it was worth the time and money.

Thanks,

Michael

hi there! there are 150 questions in the exam right? and the passing score is 80%. So 80% of 150 is 120 then at least u need to get 120 or better to pass the test?

Hi there! so how many questions are there in the exam and how much wil u need to say that u pass?

Terry in Salinas, California

Review, Giles, IER and PEAT. Giles and IER have CD's with teat quetions. Take the PEAT. It gives you a better and truer performance scoring and will let you see your weaknesses. Then use giles or IER to focus on your weaknesses.

There are a total of 200 questions on the exam. 150 are scored and the other 50 are used for possible questions on future tests.

Keep reviewing your weaknesses and you'll pass.

Don't be distressed on the test if you think you're doing poorly. out of 200 questions you can miss 40, but you won't know which ones are scored.

Good Luck!!!

Ive done the math and to pass the exam, u have to make what averages out to a 75. 600 to pass, 800 possible pts, 600 into 800 u get 75 percent.

I just failed my first attempt, scored a 562 but I didn't study any. took it 3 weeks after graduation and didn't open a book. Dumbest thing EVER.

I also second guessed myself and changed at least 8 i had correct.

i am taking it again next month but this time i am going to study!!
hopefully i will get it this time!

Perhaps you could learn to write better english and maybe you'll have better success with your problem. Not to sound mean, but I can hardly tell what your talking about.

hi ,
i didn't check it what problem you have telling me to learn better english, i have no problem in that ok ,you are not my tutor to tell me ok

Im not trying to be your tutor. Not to offend you, but maybe you should get one for some help. Look, like the way you started your sentence just now does not make a whole lot of sense and is not easy to figure out, not for most people here. If someone spoke those words to me I would not understand what you were trying to convey, a few parts of it maybe. Obviously from your perspective it's fine, so whatever.

im a graduate of BS Physical Therapy year 1999. how can i get a physical thrapy assistant exam?

icebox1331 in Barrigada, Guam

I think the first thing that i should ask is if I'm qualified to take the exam. I finished my BSPT course in the Philippines last October 1999 and passed the local board exam for PT the following year. What are the requirements for the PT assistant exam? I'm currently in Guam right now. Thanks in advance..

I was told by the agency that offers the exam that if you are getting 60-62s on your practice tests you are ready to take the exam. She was right; I took it then for the first time and passed.

That's a long prep class! Mine was only over the weekend and was a waste of time. Wish I hadn't wasted the money on the hotel and class. I only went half the first day then left for home the next morning. I passed the first time no thanks to that class
