Additionally, diagnosis, herbs and biomedicine correlations are discussed to clarify point prescriptions where applicable.
NCCAOM Acupuncture: Bensky Point Combinations
Bensky point combinations are important to know for the NCCAOM exam. They are generally seen in case studies either in the question itself or as an answer option. These are small point combinations or empirical points for a specific condition, symptom or disease. Knowing these will help get to the right answer on case studies.

NCCAOM Acupuncture: Acupuncture Case Studies
Now that you have all these point classes down, what do you do with all this material? Case Studies, of course! Acupuncture case studies are challenging on the NCCAOM exam, but they don’t have to be. I’ve devised this system for you over the past decade of teaching. Using the TCM Review System for Case Study Analysis will get you to the right answer on any case study the NCCAOM throws at you.

We use Vimeo to stream our class videos. Watching a YouTube video with no problem is not a good indicator of whether you will be able to participate in the course (especially live webinars) without interruption – the quality of YouTube videos is much lower.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Recorded videos – at least 2-3 mbps download speed
- Live webinars – at least 4-6 mbps download speed and 6-10 mbps of upload speed
To determine your internet speed, check with your internet service provider (Comcast, Verizon, etc.) or run a test at speedtest.net.
