Dr. Eric Wilson has taught this Preparatory Course for the Orthopedic Certification Specialist exam with an 88% success rate since 2003. This two-day course includes a complete review of the body by region, with sections on disease processes, modalities and research. This preparation includes more than 150 OCS exam style questions and test-taking strategies. As a former item writer, the instructor brings to light the mechanics for testing and logic for study. While the questions are not actual questions from the OCS exam, they do reflect both the content and style of the questions on the OCS exam. The course packet includes: Exam questions and answer sheet that has a key to allow the participant to go back and see what content area they are weak in; exam and answer section that provides a rationale for why the correct answer is right and why the incorrect answers are wrong; and a detailed study guide by body region. Copies of the instructional PowerPoint slides will also be provided.
