TDC completely prepared me to pass the written exam. TDC techniques were invaluable. As difficult as this exam was I felt completely prepared for the exam and felt TDC behind me the entire way saying WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST. Also, TDC was right --I felt like I had not passed--BUT I DID!!!!! Very difficult exam but COULD NOT HAVE SUCCEEDED WITHOUT TDC. THANK YOU TDC!!
I loved using the TDC materials. It felt like I was taking a class for studying, and I didn't have to figure out "what" to study because it was all laid out for me in an easy lecture, worksheet, and practice test formula. I actually enjoyed the studying process instead of being completely overwhelmed by it. Thank you, TDC, for helping me pass my first MFT exam!
I very much enjoyed the study material, which was well organized and contained. Apart from studying for the exam, TDC's materials helped me to deepen into my responsibilities as a therapist. I felt like I had the skills and knowledge to pass this exam.
I am so grateful for TDC's preparation for the exam. The important strengths were: making friends with the exam (i.e., trusting myself and the questions themselves), managing anxiety and expectations, being prepared for the experience itself rather than memorizing a bunch of content. A friend sent me the AATBS materials, which I didn't end up using, but it was amazing to compare the amount of overwork I would have done had I used them. To say it again, I am so grateful!
Thanks so much to TDC for developing this! And thank you to the team for the back-up support! Another happy client for your growing list :)
I kept hearing Amanda's voice in my head, coaching me through the exam! It worked. This is a very helpful program and I am really glad that I used it to study. Thank you!
Hands down these study materials were exceptional and helped me pass the test. Amanda's voice was with me the whole time and helped me finish strong. I used all the strategies and I'm so grateful to you TDC for spending the time to really put something together that was so organized, thorough, thoughtful and supportive. I feel proud of myself and learned a lot about my own thought patterns around test taking, which is invaluable.
Wow! I passed! I was stunned I passed. I knew the test would be hard, but not that hard. I used all the techniques in the study materials, and can definitely say I am glad I did not spend hours memorizing information that would not be tested. It IS a reasoning based test, and I was exhausted at the end. It is true, you will feel like you are failing while taking the test. I can say with confidence that the strategies helped prepare me for how to handle the questions and how to reason through them quickly enough to not be drowning without a life raft during the test. I am starting to study for the 2nd test today and feel like if I can pass that 1st hard test in one try, I can pass the 2nd test in one try as well. Thank you Amanda & TDC.
There are so many benefits to using Therapist Development Center to prepare for the licensure exam. Studying can be overwhelming but TDC gives you a schedule for studying. I felt I knew all of the information that was tested. There were no terms or questions that I had never heard of. The main challenge was choosing the best of the 2-3 correct answers (which the program prepared me for). Overall I know I would not have passed without the help of TDC. Thank you!
This program is very well designed. The materials presented were adequate for passing, not too much unnecessary details. The strategies for taking the exam were right on, just what was needed to pass. I really liked the availability of help that was immediate and though I did not need the coaching, it was nice to know that was possible. After becoming disappointed with the other exam prep companies, TDC is far superior.
Concise. To the point. No frills. The information and strategies you need. TO PASS THE FIRST TIME. I have and will continue to recommend TDC to any and all MFT interns I meet down the line. If you are just starting to look at prep programs, skip the rest and get started with TDC's program. You won't regret it.
This program was concise and comprehensive. I felt completely ready and confident for both exams as a result of the study materials and the audio presentations. I would highly recommend this program, especially for interns that have kids and are unable to attend day long workshops, etc. Thank you so much for the hard work you all have put into this program, what a gift for everyone going through the exam process!
I finally passed my written portion. I owe my gratitude for TDC study materials. Thank you..thank you.
I like how organized this program is. The test banks out there are almost schizophrenic. I like that you restored some sanity for my studying by having clear guidelines and teaching a technique that helps you choose the right answer in confidence. I passed my MFT licensing exams while being in school for my PsyD which would not have been possible without an organized way of studying.
I passed the SW Exam my first time around! Whoo-hooo!!!!!!!!!! I still can't believe it! My anxiety was very high right before I began the test and even about 20 questions into it. Overall, the test strategies served as a foundation and guide throughout the test and helped to keep me focused and present. It went very much the way TDC talks about the test - there were definitely times none of the answers seemed right, times when my knowledge, ability to reason through and utilize the strategies kept me feeling confident enough and even some times when the answers were obvious. It was definitely a disconcerting feeling as I was going through it but I didn't feel unprepared. It felt like I knew enough to make it through and that was comforting. It is so important to listen to EVERYTHING TDC says and know it. Also, Asya helped me with anxiety management and provided invaluable tips to enhance my reasoning and utilize what I knew. Her calmness and reassurance was so helpful. I could hear both Asya and Amanda's voices in my head:) Thank you so much TDC! One down, one to go!
The Therapist Development Center was the only testing system I used. I didn't even use any other additional practice tests or materials. And I passed both exams on the first attempt. Thank you, Amanda and team, for the tools to pass these most important exams in my professional licensing process.
I just took my test today and I passed!I am so grateful to you for developing this test prep which was so user friendly and a perfect match for me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I thank God for you TDC! Your program was exactly what I needed to pass the MFT standard written exam. I am going to use your program to study for the MFT vIgnettes exam and will enter this exam with a renewed confidence.
The Therapist Development Center is great. I looked at the other test prep companies and was overwhelmed. One company suggested I study 5-15 hours a week for six months. No thanks. TDC offers a low-stress, supportive learning environment where you only study what you need to know to pass. And I passed with ease. Thanks TDC!
TDC's program doesn't waste your time with detailed information that is not going to be on the exam and will never matter in your clinical work. They focus on what you need to know and help you every step of the way. With the BBS taking 8 months to approve my application, I needed more time to use the program and I got it with just a email request. I got answers to my question quickly and felt encouraged and supported through the whole process. I purchased another program before I got this one and have found that many of their test questions are very dated or obscure (Thompson vs Alameda!). A new exam (say #3 rather than #2) would repeat some of the exact questions that I had seen in the previous exams so I couldn't really know if my scores were improving and practicing with them always increased my frustration and anxiety levels.
