Course Reviews

I'm a Canadian who moved to California and had to learn California specific laws. I passed the first time! I found TDC excellent as it provided emotional support, tips, and excellent mock exams!

I only wish I knew about the TDC before I took the exam the first time.

I failed the test many times. TDC helped me to pass with the perfect techniques and mock exams.

What a great program! I passed my exam from the first try!!! I will definitely be back for my LCSW exam, I highly recommend this program!

This was a wonderful course that I feel well prepared me for the exam. Topics were covered thoroughly, rationales were provided for the mock exams that explained why certain answers were selected over others, and there were wonderful testing strategies shared. I intend to use this program when preparing for the clinical exam.

The TDC program did an amazing job preparing me for the California Law and Ethics exam. I took a deep breath before I answered my first question and I walked out of the testing room with confidence that I had passed with 15 minutes still remaining. The program made it easy for me to understand and remember the information that was tested on the exam. The exam actually felt very easy while I was testing. I am so happy that I used this program to help me prepare for the exam. Thank you so much!!! I will be back to prepare for the LCSW exam.

I used TDC & passed on my first try. I went through the program twice & felt a little overprepared during the test. The pep talk, study strategies, and test day reminders helped me manage my test anxiety. The program itself was user friendly. I couldn’t fit the recommended study schedule in. I work full time, so I broke up some of the recommended study sessions in two to accommodate my schedule. I still felt prepared. TDC thank you for designing this program.

This program and its material has not only helped me pass the exam, but made me very confident in providing ethical services to my clients. The program was AMAZING and should be required by the BBS to take it haha!

Thank you for your help! Your study plan brought so much peace of mind. I loved and appreciated your whole approach to this exam and I will absolutely be purchasing the prep course for the LCSW clinical exam when the time times!

I juat passed the Law and Ethics exam on my first try thanks to TDC!
The practice exams are perfect preperation for the real thing. I graduated in May with my MSW and started a new career in August leaving me with only enough time and mental energy to use TDC to study on the weekends. I studied for a little over 2 1/2 months receiving 71-94% on the mock exams. It felt like TDCs exams were pretty close to the real thing and I learned and grew so much from each test.
I will definitely be purchasing this program when it's time to study for licensure.

I felt well prepared on exam day. I will definitely be using TDC when I start preparing for my LCSW exam.

Thank you so much!

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.

This was a great study course!!! it guided me and didn't make me feel alone in this process. The steps were very simple to follow and it completed the job! :)

This was a great training experience and I feel I truly LEARNED!

In the beginning prior to applying for the Law & Ethics Exam with TDC, I hesitated because I didn't want to pay the expense for the program. I researched other programs and the others just didn't appear to be user friendly. I listened to other people's testimonials of their success with TDC. I finally gave in and paid the cost for the program. At first, I lacked confidence that I could really pass the exam. Then, I heard Amanda speak. Her voice captured my attention, redirected my focus and that changed everything. Amanda's presentation and voice was projected in such a way that it allowed me to easily focus, reflect on the material and hear her voice in my head. Amanda adequately prepared me for the Law & Ethics Exam. She did a great job in preparing me for the exam. I'm so glad I didn't let the cost of the program to deter me. I passed the Law & Ethics Exam the first time. Now I'm a registered ACSW with BBS. Yaaay! I plan to utilize TDC when I practice for the LCSW Licensing Exam. Serenity

I just want to share my experience today. I went into the exam with anxiety and stress. I failed the last two final exams of the program and was feeling as if I was lacking information. When I arrived at the exam Center and began the exam, I felt a calm come over me. I was impressed. The study material from the Therapist Development Center prepared me well. I look at the questions on the exam and gained asense of confidence. It was everything that I had studied. I even had time remaining to go back and recheck my work. I realized I did not have to make any corrections because I was very satisfied with my answers and ...Yes, I passed!
This was the greatest feeling ever!
Thank you so much for your Quality Program. I will be ordering the LCSW practice material from your Center and I am very confident that I will I'll do well the first time. I'm recommending your program to everyone who's looking for a Quality Program and Successful results.
Thank you again.,

The material covered in this program was 100% helpful. I especially appreciated the self- encouragement that Amanda provides for the big day!

Thank you TDC for helping me prepare for this test. I felt confident and very happy the day of the test and passed!

The best part of the program for me was being able to listen to explanations for questions and answers. That was very helpful in getting used to question format, as well as gaining a greater understanding concerning why certain answers were the correct choice.
