Thank you Dr Kyle Rice

I cannot express how grateful I am for the time you take to provide this free resource for those of us studying for the NPTE! Prior to listening to this podcast I was failing practice test after practice test and was struggling to learn the information. I listened to every episode twice through (some of them even more) over the course of 3 months and I really believe it is the primary reason I was able to pass my NPTE on the first attempt. In fact I found myself during the test analyzing the question and answer choices with your voice in my head which in a weird way gave me the confidence to believe the answer that I chose had to be correct because Coach K said it was!

More than just content

Kyle Rice’s system for passing the NPTE is part growing your PT knowledge and part motivation. I learned so much from this podcast and was hyped up by what’s here and also on the free Facebook page. It put me in a great headspace to take my exam, and guess what… I PASSED! Thank you Coach K 🙌

Coach K is the BEST

These podcasts are a large part of why I passed the NPTE. Seriously, I listened to every single one (some of them more than once), and along with providing a quick (but thorough) review, they helped me identify topics I wasn't as familiar with so I could pinpoint my weaknesses. Coach K is the MVP, and this podcast (plus the cheat sheets) are incredible. Thanks Coach K!!!
