There are 640 muscles in the body and the ITEC syllabus require you to know 72 So yes, you do need to know those 72. I know it is pretty hard going, so suggest you do one a day and make some flash cards to revise from. Also remember the pass mark is just 50% so there is lots of room for error!
An Introductory Guide to Anatomy and Physiology by Louise Tucker. Not the best a and p book on the shelf, however it has been written for the ITEC exam board, so worth having a copy. A second hand one would be fine.
We are not allowed to circulate past papers but there are mock exams as follows:
The skeletal system mock exam is at the end of the skeletal unit. Muscular system mock exam is at the end of the muscles, origins and insertions unit. Cardio-vascular and respiratory system mock exam at end of respiratory unit. Nervous, endocrine systems and skin mock exam are found at the end of skin unit.
There is also a full 55 minute optional exam in unit 15, Optional Exam.
We will also send you a few sample questions provided by ITEC when you book your exam
A PC, Mac or laptop is preferred. On these devices there must be a webcam either built in or attached and a mouse. You may not touch the keyboard during the exam - we recommend you cover your keyboard with a sheet of paper to remind you.
You may use an iPad or tablet as long as you have a separate device such as a phone to join the invigilator via zoom.

"May I also commend your instructor, Jane. She was so articulate and concise in her delivery of her material. The planning of her course and the methodologies she employed greatly facilitated learning, and her passion and depth of knowledge were both impressive and inspiring. I've been teaching 22 years and have a PhD in language pedagogy, and she made this cautious digression in my career a very enjoyable experience for me"
