The Science Behind Mobile Learning:
Overloading your brain with too much information at once is a common study mistake. Research has shown that smaller, more frequent study sessions are the key to knowledge retention. In other words, taking short quizzes on the go is a much more effective means of exam preparation than reading page after page in a textbook. Apps offer the benefit of interaction, which means you’re far more likely to remember a concept you engage with rather than one you’ve only read about.

Take your NPTE studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

Highly recommended it!!

This app help me so much to pass my NPTE.
They’re questions has a similar line of thought with NPTE. I suggest for anyone who’s studying for boards to start doing questions two weeks before the test. If you get the answer wrong it’s okay. The most important is for you to understand the reason behind it and remember it. After understanding it, play with the idea of how can you apply the information with other situations/people . ( elderly, adults and etc) this app explains all the option well. If you can’t remember it, you can go and make a flash card. I used quizlet and it’s very helpful. After reviewing all the right and wrong answer make a flash card over it and go over it at least before you go to bed and try to do it every day if you can, until you master all of it. This app has been a blessing to me. Good luck to anyone who’s gonna take the test. Always pray before each question and you’ll do great!!

I wish I had been Using this for the 10 question quiz every day since I was in school.

My wife is in physical therapy assistant school and we have been doing one of the 10 question quiz is every day and then keeping score of who does better every time. I wish I had been doing this ever since I was in school and it probably would’ve even helped when I was a tech.

I passed.

Pocket Prep was the other one-third of my study material for the exam. I studied every Monday through Friday exactly a month prior to my April exam. Ther-ed book, 2 PEATs and this App. On average I did about 50 questions a day, 4-5 times a week. Every question I went over the 4 choices regardless of right or wrong, I went over them. Instead of making a long note of study materials, IMO I memorized better by just keep drilling through the questions from PEAT and Pocket Prep. I know it won’t cover everything but will definitely get you the basic info down that will count as your scored questions on the NPTE.
If you’re a PTA student then you HAVE TO get this app.
4 stars because the app sometimes crashes and starts all over.. hence the reason why I only did 50 questions maximum every time.
