Massage Therapy Review: Passing the NCETMB and NCETM Exams is designed to help massage therapists prepare for the National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCETMB) AND the National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage (NCETM). The certifying exam, National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB), broke into two separate sections last year, with the former being more robust, including additional oriental modalities. The exam reviews are a thorough study of a broad range of material; new graduates find it stressful, as they must pass in order to practice as a licensed professional in most states. This is the only review text that offers questions, answers, and explanations in the same form and organization as the exam itself. A high first time fail rate combined with the fact that graduates must pass this exam in order work as a professional, makes Massage Therapy Review: Passing the NCETMB and NCETM Exams an excellent choice. A richly illustrated text, a 50-page Prep Course Outline, a 200-page Anatomy and Physiology Outline, and a CD containing 1500 test questions provides a comprehensive review presented in a clearly written style.
