Theory Exam Review
This is basically a review of what we discussed in-class.
The theory exam is divided into 4 stations spread out in the exam room. You will complete a station individually and move to the next station. You will get a 5min break at the station before moving to the next station. The exam will take between 2 and 2.5hours.
Key terms in exam questions and their meaning:
Name: This means a term (includes a few words or a phrase) or word. No explanations
Describe: This means one or more sentences depending on mark allocation
List: This means just a term (a few words or a phrase) or word, NO sentence or explanation
Label: This means just a word, no sentence or explanation
The exam is NOT an open book exam, you will not be able to bring anything to the exam except a pen, pencil & eraser and a refreshment & snack. NO cell phone or notes.
Refer to the areas you marked as important from pg 3-22 , including the handout on stress. In the functional Anatomy section, read it a few times concentrating on the general reflexes worked for each body system. A suggestion in preparation for the exam and for your use in practice is to create a spreadsheet for yourself with the following headings:
Body system Main reflexes Helper reflexes Referral reflexes
The helper reflexes would be specific to that body system, but recall there are also general helper reflexes used for all body systems depending on the client presentation. Refer to Module 1 pg11. You DO NOT need to learn detailed Anatomy as you have already been quizzed. You only need to review the function of each organ.
Review the reflex action and how this relates to Reflexology. Review the main components of the nervous system.
Refer to the areas that you marked as important. Review nerve supply to the foot.
Please post a comment if you need a little extra clarification. Once again I wish to set you up for success in your exam, be sure and confident that you know what to concentrate on in your preparation for the exam.
This module covers some of the aspects that make this certification a specialty designation. Learn this Module well. You do not need to learn anatomy & physiology of the muscular system. Concentrate on pg 8-9 & Table 1. You need to know the muscle/organ relationship and the protocol process which will be asked in the form of a theoretical Case Stu
