Online Practice Tests To Help You Pass The MBLEx

Passing the MBLEx is often the last hurdle before you can get your massage license and begin your new career as a professional massage therapist. 

Unfortunately, only 73.9% of MBLEx candidates pass the massage exam on their first attempt. And for those who have to retake the exam, only 40.9% pass (according to the FSMTB 2018 Annual Report).

Failing the MBLEx can be discouraging. Plus it means spending another $215 and waiting another 30 days before you can reschedule the exam. This postpones being able to start working as a massage therapist at least a month. 

You’ve worked hard to get this far. Don’t let the massage licensing exam slow you down.

Why include practice tests in your MBLEx study plan?

Practice tests are one of the best ways to improve recall and prepare for an exam. Reading from textbooks is important to learn the concepts initially. But research shows that reading the same material over and over again is NOT the best way to increase recall and improve performance on tests. 

Using practice tests frequently is a much better strategy to increase your recall of the material. This is called the testing effect. Testing makes your memory stronger and makes it easier to retrieve the information you learn.

Repeated testing is an effective strategy for learning and retaining information about human anatomy.

Repeated studying after learning had no effect on delayed recall, but repeated testing produced a large positive effect.

Immediate testing after reading a prose passage promoted better long-term retention than repeatedly studying the passage.

Roediger, H.L., Karpicke, J.D. (2006). Test-Enhanced Learning: Taking memory tests Improves long-term retention. Psychological Science, Vol. 17, p.253.

Repeated testing with feedback appears to result in significantly greater long-term retention of information taught in a didactic conference than repeated, spaced study.
