The Complete Review Guide,
for State & National Examinations In Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork
7th Edition - 2014

With Text & Sample Questions
The Complete Review Guide was first published in 1995.  It is a thorough synopsis of the essential reference material needed to successfully prepare for state and national license or certification examinations in therapeutic massage and bodywork. Included in the Tips for Successful Test Taking section are strategies for learning, coping with test anxiety, and conquering the multiple-choice test. It contains more than 256 pages of detailed information, concisely organized into chapters that correspond with the specific exam content outlines presented by every state and national examination.  Following each chapter are pertinent multiple-choice review questions.   The 7th Edition contains updated exam content outlines for the states of New York & Hawaii, the FSMTB (MBLEx), and the NCETMB & NCETM. There are new questions added and a new format to help students study for the specific exam they are taking.  We updated the information so it is the current data needed to successfully pass these exams.  The author suggests that only an atlas of musculoskeletal anatomy and a medical dictionary are needed as supplementary material when using the Complete Review Guide to prepare for standardized examinations.
