Congratulations to Lee Fields for passing the ASWB Clinical exam! Lee wrote us a wonderful and inspiring message which reminds us why we do what we do. He wrote, "I want to thank The Therapist Development Center for providing to me free LCSW study materials as a result of my veteran status. I had earlier purchased the Law and Ethics materials from TDC in the past, followed the provided study structure and suggestions in the syllabus, and passed the exam on my first attempt. I did the same for the ASWB Clinical exam with the same result; passing the first time.
TDC was a Godsend for me! I really struggled with setting up my own study plan using an exam prep book. The prep book had a lot of good information, but reading through a textbook was not a good option for me! TDC really gave me the structured study program I needed to be successful on this exam. I am a firm believer in finding what works for you and things not always being one size fits all. This program was definitely what worked for me! I still struggled with pretty intense anxiety leading up to the exam and on test day, but that's pretty common for me.
The course was very instrumental in my ability to pass. I have been out of school for decades, and missed being grandfathered in as an LMSW. I'm glad I did, because I learned so much with the course. It was easier learning the DSM V by going through this course then it would have been trying to go through it on my own. Thank you.
TDC is the only study system I used. The information was very comprehensive and the program was easy to follow. I felt well prepared for the exam. I had test anxiety, so once I understood how to manage it using self talk and relaxation techniques I was able to pass the test. Thanks TDC.
TDC made passing my exam possible. I needed 99 to pass and scored 110. I had failed the exam 2 times using other study materials. I passed on my third attempt but it was my first time taking the exam with TDC. The curriculum is very straight forward and easy to manage. You can also formulate your own study schedule easily with having work schedules or kids ect., which is what I did. I started studying mid July 2018 and studied through till my test on 10/2018. I went through the curriculum two times just to ensure my self confidence.
I finally passed my LCSW exam on my third attempt thanks to TDC! I had used plenty of other study guides and work books, along with going to multiple exam prep classes, but none of them seemed to work. I found out through TDC that I'm an auditory learner, and listening to the lectures while taking notes really helped the information stick with me. I love how TDC gives you a study plan to follow, because before that I felt lost and "all over the place" with what I should and shouldn't study. The lectures are straightforward, concrete, and to the point.
I took this year after graduation from my MSW program and seriously needed review. Everything that I needed to know was covered. The lectures were interesting and super helpful, the study materials were concise and the practice exams proved to be a great simulation that helped me troubleshoot my weak spots and helped me have a better understanding of what the actual exam would be looking for.
Thank you TDC for preparing me to take and pass my LCSW exam! I used the materials as directed for the most part. I had to wait a while to test as I had submitted my request to my state board right after the deadline for the next meeting and had to wait several months. During that time I listened to the lectures several times on my drives to work. As my test day got closer I went back over everything and took my final mock and passed with an 84. But started to get really nervous and felt I was getting test anxiety, which has never been an issue.
I AM A BELIEVER! Therapist Development Center was a life saver for this independent and busy girl. I had taken the test once before, using a different study program and I did not pass. I following Amanda’s recommendations and utilizing all of the program mock tests were very helpful to prepare me for the LCLE. I was extremely nervous on test day, but listening to the Final Review and Pep talk normalized my thoughts and feelings the day of.
This program is why I feel I passed. This is my first time testing and I was nervous and that test was difficult. I did not feel that I had passed it, yet I did, I scored a 112 and needed a 98. I believe the program changed the way that I think about the question and was able to give me the knowledge to think about the question not only for the test but real life too. I would recommend the ASWB test to reinforce the knowledge gained from this program. I plan to use this for my Clinical test too. Being a veteran has really helped in getting this program and I feel very blessed.
