Publisher Comments:

Written in plain, simple language, this book is a great study guide for massage therapists taking National Certification Examinations or state or local exams. The author restates the topics and concepts covered on the National Exams in a straightforward way for easy retention and comprehension. The text emphasizes memorization and repetition as effective study methods and includes test-taking tips, positive affirmations, and cartoons to ease apprehension about the exam. End-of-chapter practice questions help readers review material. A back-of-book CD-ROM contains three complete practice tests so students can practice taking exams and test their knowledge.
