RMT Review

This book is informative however there is a lot of superfluous information to sift through before getting to what one really needs to know to pass the MBLeX. Zero in on the anatomy chapters and skip the history. It's a decent technical book but you do have to sift through it. The end of section quizzes are not as challenging as I had expected but they are good enough for a section review.

Excellent book for someone who is starting a career in Massage Therapy. Easy to use and very helpful with the test pages at the end of each chapter. As a new student, I have been able to use this book every day.
It is beyond my expectations. Very happy and I will always keep it in my clinic.
