About

Description: 

This updated fourth edition of the Study Guide for the Therapeutic Recreation Specialist Certification Examination has been fully updated, largely due to two reasons: (a) the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC) has recently updated the Job Analysis, which helps structure the content of the test, and (b) the computerized test has a newer format of a 90-item base test and 15-item testlets. Therefore, the authors have restructured the Study Guide to align more closely with the most recent NCTRC exam content and format. This study guide will help prepare individuals in knowledge areas and offers tools to reduce test anxiety
