Test Prep for the CHT Exam, (Third Edition): Book + Online Content + CE
ASHT’s TEST PREP for the CHT Exam, 3rd Edition, is a detailed reference tool for therapists desiring to earn the Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) credential. This edition includes relevant evidence, provides references from peer reviewed journal articles, includes review questions, and presents numerous images to enhance visual learning. Through a combination of print and digital access, ASHT has created a valuable resource for referencing relevant anatomy, surgical procedures, treatment guidelines, progression and orthotic regimens for the various diagnoses that therapists treat on a daily basis.
This book covers 13 chapters, which address the core elements of hand therapy practice including fracture management, wound healing, and nerve injury. Purchase of this book provides access to 20 additional online chapters, which continue the learning experience on topics such as burns, modalities, sprains and strains, electrodiagnostics, and pediatric conditions.
Multiple-choice questions have been added at the end of each chapter to review material and assess overall comprehension.
A 200-question multiple-choice exam at the end of the text offers the opportunity to receive continuing education credit with a grade of 80% or higher. Please note: Those taking the exam will receive a score; however, an answer key to this exam is not provided in order to maintain the integrity of the continuing education unit.

Most of the modifications are minor and provide additional information or expand on a concept outlined in the bullet points to improve the reader’s understanding. If an error was found in that chapter, this is also corrected in this document.
