Sheila,
I agree that the numerous theories can be confusing. We used Shumway-Cook and Woollacott, 5th edition, as they are the gold standard for motor learning and control. We feel that the test will have more questions on newer theories, however, some knowledge of the basic premises of older theories would be important. Campbell’s text has some nice sections on application- that is probably the most valuable part of that text.
