Course Reviews

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. I personally found extra comfort in listening to the Top 30 Topics a second time leading up to the examination; there were so many little things I did not pick up on before, Ahha moment. I used up the entirety of my test time and though there was a point where I had less time then questions to answer I PASSED!

I found this program very helpful as the practice exams helped with my time management and answering the questions within the time frame. Also, the audio component, my preferred way to study, gave me the flexibility to study while walking, cleaning or just relaxing. I was very prepared the day of the test.

I took the exam twice before using other study guides that provided very general, inapplicable/dry understandings, with NO critical applications for clinical practice, and how this would be utilized in the exam. I found the actual test questions were easier than TDC's practice tests- after diving into Amanda's rationales, the answer was often right in front of me. I knew I passed even before getting the print out.

The study material was amazing. The outline for the work provides enough time to be prepared and confident to take the test. I passed the first time, and felt comfortable taking the test.

Great program and made the studying process manageable!

I am glad that I chose the Therapist Development Center to prepare for the Law and Ethics course. Not only did I feel well prepared and confident for my exam, more importantly, I felt that I learned and had a better understanding of the laws and ethics surrounding being a social worker. I feel that this study prep has made me become a better social worker and be able to move forward in a more professional matter with my clients and the organization I work for. I will definitely be using TDC for my clinical exam and will be recommending it to all of my social work friends.

I have used this program for two exams already, and I passed them all the first time!

I enjoyed this program. I heard this program was the best and I can say I am a firm believer. The program was so helpful that I felt the test was easier than the program. lol The pep talk at the end of the program was very helpful, it helped to ground me and actually feel ready for the test. Also, the practice exams are true to the actual test.

I was so nervous when thinking of taking this exam. A colleague recommended this study material and it helped so much! I really heard Amanda during the test! :) She breaks it down so nicely and applies it to real situations. Such a great program!

I took my Exam this morning and I passed! The TDC not only provided great study material but it also helped with my professional development as a clinician. Thank you!

Thank you TDC for helping this anxiety ridden, ADHD, new to the world of therapy girl successfully pass my Law and Ethics exam on the first try. I knew that my learning disability was going to present some challenges and was encouraged by the structure of this program. The read it, do it, talk about it method really helped me. Thank you for guiding me through this process.

I hate taking tests and have always been bad at it. Studying was something I feared and loathed. It's crazy to say, but I actually enjoyed the studying process through TDC. I loved that I could listen to the material (I'm a relational learner) and the practice quiz's helped me prepare for the real exam. I also loved being able to ask a coach when I had questions, because the responses were always thoughtful, encouraging, and timely. Thanks you guys!

I am so relieved it's over! And very thankful to have used your services. I will be returning for the clinical for sure. Thank you!
