SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads. Hello everyone, I am finishing up my second year in PT school and was just wondering when I should start studying for the NPTE Exam. I am going to go ahead and buy the O'Sullivan's preparation book online, however I just don't know when to start exactly. Any recommendations? Moreover, I would like to form a study group where we can discuss the examination process, ask each other questions, etc... I think it would be beneficial to all of us to share ideas and experiences in the field. Would anyone be interested? Any other ideas?
