Your program is completely unique in the approach, and I am now convinced that it made all the difference in helping my former students pass the NBCOT® exam, whom had not previously been successful after using other study preparation programs.Read MoreShow less

This is by far the BEST tutorial service to pass either the OTR® or COTA® boards. Forget any other programs you may have tried in the past, this is the one that will help you pass no matter how many times it has taken in the past. The material is condensed and concrete so it is much more manageable and less overwhelming than the other courses offered out there. I cannot thank Stephanie enough for creating this program!Read MoreShow less

I definitely recommend enrolling in the Pass the OT Program! I was able to improve my score by nearly 40 points using the web course membership. I originally scored a 425, but with the program I was able to pass with a 464. Because this is the only current OT study aid that utilizes various study tools, including audio files, diagrams, written material, and videos, this is worth the investment. This program helped me synthesize and clinically think about all the important topics that were on the NBCOT® , helping me master the material in a very organized and efficient way.
What I found most helpful were the tips and tricks I learned from this program. I was told to first study each module for the first few days of the week, watch videos and audio files during the middle of the week, then take practice exams at the end of the week and review my mistakes. As opposed to overwhelming and limiting myself to strictly reading textbook material and taking excessive amounts of practice questions, I felt that I was able to study more efficiently and holistically.
I recommend this program to anyone preparing for the NBCOT® ! As you can see, based on all the positive reviews enrolling in this program is one decision you will NOT regret! 🙂 Good luck to my fellow OTR'S® !Read MoreShow less

I can't say enough words to express my gratitude for this program. It has opened my opportunities, and has started my career. I highly recommend using this program right when you first start studying. This is ALL you need. It lays everything out for you so you don't have to worry about missing any important topics, and you have difficult practice question on each module to get you thinking. Once you get through this program, you WILL pass your exam. This is a must have!Read MoreShow less

OTR/L A.T. Still University (OT Silver Package)
WOW. I highly recommend using this program before you waste $500-$1,000 studying other material. I am an older student and I took the NBCOT® twice and failed both times using Therapy Ed® book and CD. I knew the information, but was not answering the questions the way I needed to in order to be successful. Pass the OT presented the information in a different way and I was able to break down each question and make the correct choice. I went from a 427, to a 431 studying with Therapy Ed® to a 468 in four weeks using the Silver package and 4 tutoring session with Sarah. You can do the math; I am just happy someone referred me to this awesome program. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you. I really appreciate your help in this process.Read MoreShow less

OTR/L Univ. of Alberta (OT Crash Course)
This was a wonderful tool that I used to help me pass my NBCOT® the first time that I took it! I bought the crash course, and took the quizzes after each module. I also used AOTA® pdfs, which were good but in some areas not as detailed. I used the Therapy Ed ® book exams, and some of the information that I needed to cross reference. Passtheot was a lot less overwhelming than Therapy E® ..Read MoreShow less

OTR/L Clevland State Univ. (OT Gold Package)
After taking the exam previously and learning I did not pass was devastating. I took the Therapy Ed course, purchased multiple practice examination textbooks, and used flash cards. I could not understand where I was going wrong. I even reached out to the college I graduated from and that was a dead end. Stephanie Shane was kind to take the time to speak with me by phone to provide her suggestions. I took the 7 week course with a tutoring session at the end of each week. The tutor I worked with was Kim. She was amazing and extremely professional. We would discuss the questions I got incorrect on the weekly exams and/or any of the material that week I had difficulties understanding. To my surprise, it was not the lack of knowing the material but the lack of self confidence I had in myself. This program helped me understand my greatest weakness by having the professional on the other end of the telephone to discuss my clinical reasoning. I increased my score by 40 points and I am proud to say I am now an Occupational Therapist. I highly recommend this program to anyone who needs assistance with passing the NBCOT exam.Read MoreShow less

Pass the OT helped me to focus on what was most important to know for the exam. Between the modules, charts, videos, and audio recordings, I was able to learn through a variety of ways which made my studying a lot more manageable. Pass the OT knew which topics were important, and the audio recordings that mirrored different topics allowed me to think outside the box. Rather than just knowing factual details, the audios gave me intervention ideas, which helped build my clinical perspective.
I would highly suggest the tutoring sessions as well. Whether it be just one session or even 10, talking about questions and topics really helped my learning. Through the tutoring sessions, I found that I was better able to read questions and answer them correctly by the end. I also learned the importance of how to read a question for what it was really asking based off the diagnosis, setting, OT process, etc.
Regardless of what method one uses to study for the NBCOT® , I would highly recommend using Pass the OT. The staff running the program were very motivating and helpful and the tutor was knowledgeable and boosted by confidence !Read MoreShow less

COTA® Ithaca College (OTA Silver Package)
I passed the NBCOT® on my first try with flying colors thanks to Pass The OT. I started studying on my own and just felt overwhelmed: the AOTA® study program was too basic and the Therapy Ed® program had too much info to know where to start.
Pass The OT, with their 8 week study structure, was just right. I also got a few phone tutor sessions with them and they were supportive and knowledgeable, with strategies to guide my studying and answers to my most complicated questions.
In the end I used Pass The OT to structure my studies, loved their study resources, took their weekly exams, but also used the Therapy Ed® book for reference details and took a lot of AOTA® practice tests. The combination was best for me, my anxieties and my knowledge base.Read MoreShow less
