11/10 recommend to all my friends

I listened to this podcast as often as I could: driving, walking the dogs, cleaning, sometimes during workouts. I truly feel that the information provided is easy to take in, highly relevant, and long lasting (good tips and tricks for remembering concepts). I seriously give credit to the PT Hustle podcast and team for my success in passing the NPTE.

LISTEN TO THIS

I did my own studying for the NPTE but this podcast gave me the framework to create a study guide. I started listening and taking notes in my phone’s notes app and then would study that concept and expand later. I listened to EVERY episode and stuck with this method because it gave me to motivation to keep going. I ended up with over 20 pages of notes just based on this podcast alone and organized it by topics. This was a huge part of how I succeeded. Thanks Coach K!
