USERNAME
Please be aware that all users can see your scores on the website. If you wish to remain anonymous, change your username to something that is not recognizable.

ACCESS TO WEBSITE
You will have access to the website until the date of the next massage board exam. If you are not scheduled to take the next massage board exam, please contact us immediately. Be sure that you have sent in your paperwork to both Castle Worldwide and to NY State before the deadline, which is usually November 1 for the January exam and June 1 for the August exam.

COOKIES
Make sure cookies are enabled on your computer.

WEB BROWSER
Be sure not to use Microsoft internet explorer or Safari to access my website, as it will cause you problems. Try to use Firefox or Google Chrome instead. If one gives you problems, switch to the other.

ACCESSING THE EXAMS
After you log into the website, look on the menu for the word “Quizzes.” 
Clicking on it will bring you to a page with several clickable links, such as:

Massage Subject Exams 1
Massage Subject Exams 2
Massage Subject Exams 3
Massage General Exams 1
Massage General Exams 2
Massage General Exams 3
Eastern Exams
Premium Exams (only visible is you have paid to access those extra resources)
Flip Cards (only visible is you have paid to access those extra resources)

DIFFICULTY
Please note that the Subject Exams tend to be a bit harder that the State Board Exam. Use those exams, but don’t worry so much about your grades on them. You should be more concerned with your scores on the General and Eastern exams groups. Each of the clickable links, such as “Massage Subject Exams 1” will have anywhere from 20-30 exams inside it.

There are over 150 exams on the site and you are allowed to take most of the exams 4 times each. That equals over 900 exams that might take at least two months to complete. I highly suggest that you allocate enough time to maxing out all the exams on the website.  Don’t make the mistake that some students do, of only completing half of all the exams. If you put the time into using the website, it will certainly raise your grade and deepen your knowledge.

POINTS
The website will keep track of the number of questions your answered correctly and issue 1 point for each.
It will also keep track of your average score for each exam and section.
You can compete against other users or against others from your school.

IMPORTANT
It is counterproductive to cram on the day of the exam. There is also a time limit of one minute per question while taking the quizzes. A twenty question quiz, for example, needs to be finished in twenty minutes.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
