In the summer of 2016, I prepared for the California Law & Ethics exam with another study program. I remember taking the practice tests two times each and on the second round of the practice exams, my scores were incredibly high and I believed I was well prepared for the exam. However, when I got to the exam, I remember feeling mortified that the question stems were nothing like the ones I had been preparing with for the past month! I missed the passing score by one and was disappointed to say the least. One of my colleagues recommended that I invest in a study package from the Therapist Development Center and I was swayed by the guarantee that TDC would be with me until I passed. I started studying again in the fall of 2016 and completed each step through the first of the two final mock exams. This time around, I practiced self-care and created a balance between work, studying and my personal life and I felt more relaxed going into the actual exam despite the normal test day jitters. I recalled seeing 1 or 2 questions on the actual exam that I had answered on the practice exams. I practiced reading the questions out loud while I studied so I read the question stems in my mind and was able to complete the 75 questions with ample time to review those that I had marked. Thank you TDC for your amazing program. The information provided in the study package was more than enough without feeling overwhelming for an individual who once struggled with test anxiety. I will certainly make this investment again when it is time for my clinical exam!
I have never done well at standardized tests so taking the Law and Ethics exam felt daunting. The exam prep was the best thing that anyone could have used to pass this test. You provide exactly the information you need for the test and the questions on the test were similar to the practice tests I took during studying. The lectures, practice tests, quick studies, and rationales for answers were extremely helpful. I look forward to using TDC when I prep for the clinical exam! Thank you!!!!!
This study system was amazing! From the moment I started the program my anxiety decreased. I studied more efficiently and I felt more confident as a clinician after going through this program. The program highlighted areas that I was lacking in knowledge. The support staff were amazing when computer issues or questions arose. Thanks for all your support!
I felt so prepared for the Law and Ethics exam! I would not have passed if I had studied on my own.
I took the MFT Law and Ethics once before, studied for months with another company's program, and did not pass. I bought Therapist Development Center last month, studied, and today I passed. I walked in feeling confident that I actually learned the information. I leaned into the test as you told me to, instead of fighting it. I love this program because you made learning enjoyable, and easy to master. Thank you for all your help! Now on to the next one.
TDC has excellent preparation materials for the MFT Law and Ethics test and excellent support. Thank you!
This course prepares you in virtually every respect for the LMFT Law and Ethics Exam. The way in which the material blends the retention and understanding of pertinent factual information within the context of enhancing reasoning skills had me well prepared for the exam. The instructor not only provides guidance in a very comprehensive manner, but equally important, in a way that feels relatable and supportive.
This program was AWESOME!
I was very very pleased with the program and will be using it for the clinical exam as well. Amanda has such a clear understanding of the exam process; I brought her 'with me' into the room on exam day. One of the last things she said, 'tolerate uncertainty' helped me to stay focused throughout the 90 minutes. I highly recommend the course!
So happy to say I passed!!! My intern number expired and I had no choice but to take the L&E exam in order to renew it. This program was structured very well. I loved that I could listen to the lectures anywhere. I also appreciate that there were lots of exams with helpful explanations to guide me. So happy I chose this program!! Thank you.
The idea of studying for the MFT Law and Ethics exam was daunting and I did not know where to begin. Two of my friends who recently passed the exam told me about The Therapist Development Center. The program laid out the whole study process in a manageable and orderly way. The audio teaching was extremely helpful as I could listen to the lectures over and over until I felt I understood the content. The practice exams allowed me to test my comprehension of the information. At the end of the program, I felt prepared for the test and that I had a good understanding of the law and ethical standards that I am expected to follow as an MFT Intern.
Just wanted to thank the TDC and Amanda Rowan. I passed my L&E exam on my first try. Your program was easy and convenient to use! Your mock exams and rationales were spot-on and helped me become so comfortable with the testing process. I learned so much. Not only am I thrilled I passed, but most importantly, I know I am a better, more knowledgeable clinician. I just scheduled my Clinical exam and started your Clinical study program. I must admit, I am enjoying this journey and I'm pretty sure it's because of the TDC!
Thank you Amanda!! I heard your voice and asked myself a couple times, how would Amanda answer this question? I took my break and fueled up. I stayed calm and present and leaned in. I went into attack mode and listened to amazing motivational speeches about faith, love and destiny (youtube). This was my second try, the first I had so much anxiety I had no sleep (and only missed by 4). Your rationales were so effective because that exam is tough! You were right, the exam really tested if you knew your stuff not just key phases, and the wording they used was tricky. Yet thanks to your amazing program and insight, I passed and just had to share my appreciation. Thank you for assisting me in accomplishing a 10 year journey. :) !
The TDC exam prep offers a great study structure to use or modify to fit an individual's schedule. It helped prepare me to reduce anxious feelings and feel confident with preparing for the exam. However, the testing site's rules and atmosphere does a great job of eliciting anxiety. The prep questions were similar in information tested on, however, the visual structure of the actual Law and Ethics exam differs greatly from TDC prep and should be noted as a cautionary to reduce anxiety when seeing it for the first time. I am looking forward in purchasing the LMFT Clinical prep exam soon! Thanks, EMCV!
TDC was a very easy and thorough study program, not only did I feel prepared and ready to take the Law and Ethics exam, I felt like a more competent therapist. Thank you TDC for being available to answer my questions and for your AWESOME study program. The rationales were extremely helpful for me :) I also appreciated the Pep Talk because it described exactly how I was feeling and it was encouraging!!!
The information provided by TDC is spot on. They don't burden you down with a lot of excess material. The 'whole' approach was very helpful, from creating a study plan, to suggestions about establishing a routine for the test, snack before, take a mock at the same time as you are planning to take the test, the pre-test talk. I don't think I have ever felt as comfortable and as prepared for taking a test before. I will definitely be back for the clinical exam.
I wanted to personally thank you and your crew for all that you have done to help me pass this exam. I remember in the introductory material that you said we can't memorize the material, WE HAVE TO KNOW IT. So, I reviewed the material everyday and when I was unable to understand anything, I would say it at minimum 12 or more times out loud until I understood the dept of the legal and ethical material. You guys are so AWESOME!
TDC gave me the knowledge and confidence to pass the exam! I am so thankful my friends and colleagues recommended this study system to me. I am a firm believer that others should choose TDC to assist them in passing the exam.
I did end up running out of time which was weird because all the practice exams I'd been in under the time limit. But I'm very happy to have passed it! It was somewhat comforting to have your last bit of advice that you might not feel like you were going to pass because I definitely did not feel that way during the test!
This study program helped me stay organized and focused. All the steps were simple to follow and your methods kept my anxiety levels in check. I went into the test feeling competent and ready! Thank you!
