    Not Impressed!

    Be aware that the 3 tests online are repetitive questions and not 3 full tests. Of course your score will improve by the third practice test if you've aready answered all of the questions during the first 2 tests. This makes it difficult to see your actual progress. Also, most of the questions in the book are not formatted like the questions on the actual test. I found Cottrell's National Occupational Therapy Certification Exam Review & Study Guide much more helpful and worth the extra money.
