Hand Exam Prep

“STRUCTURE. ACCOUNTABILITY. Connect with Others Taking the Exam.”

“Just do it. It’s a big exam it takes a lot out of your life and I needed to break it down and just make it a little bit more feasible. We’re such a small little group of people it’s hard to find you know people like you people to keep you motivated. If you need accountability, structure, and help with challenging concepts, this is the group to join. Hoang makes concepts easier to grasp.”

- Shanna L, CA
[Shanna was looking for like-minded people to help her get to pass the CHT exam]

“It Helped Me Not To Feel Alone. At the End of the Day I’m a Better Therapist for Taking this Course.”

I had trouble with organizing my study and the weekly calls kept me focused. Hoang was great, she answers all your questions and keeps you on track and accountable. It’s worth it!!!

- Allisen A.
[was looking for something that could help her feel prepared for the CHT exam.]

“She is There to Help You Be a Better Hand Therapist.”

“Before the Hand Exam Prep, I was struggling with EVERYTHING! Where to start, what to look at, what timeline to do it in, what resources to use! I literally just felt overwhelmed and did not know where to start. Hoang helps lay it out in bite-size pieces and it all of a sudden is manageable!

You will not regret signing up for the Hand Exam Prep Program. Hoang and her team are highly devoted to your success. They are in your back pocket to help YOU however YOU need! Whether it is encouragement, a swift kick in the butt, a way to help you carve out time for your test. When Hoang draws the explanation on herself it helps SOOOO much! I just remember it and understand it better. I have learned so much and I am so grateful to have had this opportunity.”

“If You Need a Kick in the Pants. Do It.”

There is so much information and I wasn’t sure what areas to study more than others. If you were flailing around half ass studying like I was, you need to do this and force yourself to make a date for the test. If you need help with organizing and retaining information then get structure and accountability from the program. I joined because I knew that this program would give me structure and would help me to focus on the areas of most importance for the exam.

I like that it keeps me accountable. For me, I tend to get caught up on an area and stay there because I want to feel like I fully grasp it and know everything about it. But, that does not work with this exam. There is so much info to cover. With this program, I am forced to move on to next week’s topic and that is something that personally I found helpful. I also like the videos. I listen to them in my car or when I am in bed and can’t fall asleep. And the repetition of watching them helps me to remember the info better.

"This program really helped me understand the basic anatomy and biomechanics needed to think through problems."

It also helped me realize I didn’t need to remember every tiny little detail about everything because when reading the Rehab of the Hand book it’s very easy to get caught up in the little things.

There was so much information I was completely overwhelmed with where to focus. I read the Rehab of the Hand book cover to cover and felt like I didn’t retain much at all.

The videos and the encouragement to draw on your hand! The visuals help me so much, I always wrote on myself in anatomy but had forgotten some of my strategies since it’s been a while!

 Having failed the exam by 1-2 points each time I have taken the exam has been extremely humbling & disheartening. This program helped me to stay on track & ignore the white noise of the past. 

Having an outline with topics, your videos, our weekly zoom meetings all to keep us on task. I appreciate your motivation, positive energy, and knowledge. I appreciate the way Hoang present the topics in your video’s & in our zoom meetings. Having Hoang as our personal cheer leader has been excellent!
