Figuring out what you need to do to prepare for the OT exam and when- choose the one that fits:
(STAGE 1) PRE-CONTEMPLATION: The exam? I haven’t thought about it yet!
(STAGE 2) CONTEMPLATION: I am thinking that I should think about the exam now.
(STAGE 3) PREPARATION: I am ready to get serious. How should I prepare?
(STAGE 4) ACTION: Exam is scheduled – I can’t back out now! Tips for studying (that are supported by evidence)!
(STAGE 5) MAINTENANCE: I need to wait to take the exam even though I am ready.
(STAGE 6) TERMINATION: You passed – you are an OT now! Congratulations!
