NCBTMB Announces Launch of Online Practice Exam
Introducing a new Online Practice Exam and Study Tool
OAKBROOK TERRACE, Illinois (August 6, 2012) – The National Certification Board
for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) announced today the launch of one of
many new initiatives for 2012. The Online Practice Exam and Study Tool will properly
prepare massage therapy students for their national exams and Certification credentials.
Early beta-testers report that the new tool is far superior to the previous practice exam
that was discontinued earlier this year.
The Online Practice Exam and Study Tool offers thousands of questions covering
relevant course-specific material. The user can choose to take a practice test that is preloaded
with 160 random questions, or students may also administer the exam in specific
areas of concentration, including:
- Body Parts
- Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology
- Massage Application
- Professional Standards
The Practice Exam is set up in levels to enable students to answer easier questions
while learning, and then advance to the more difficult questions when they are further
along in their studies. It also allows the flexibility to review the incorrect answers and
provides the test-taker with the correct responses to those questions.
