Course Reviews

I struggle with the Law and Ethics exam 4 times prior and really studying and having study time really supported with passing my exam. Thank you TDC for making your study material difficult because test day was a walk in the park.

I am so grateful for the Therapist Development Center. I have never been good at test taking but TDC not only prepared me for the Law and Ethics exam, it also allowed me to understand valuable concepts that I can one day use as a practicing clinician. I can’t thank this program enough for helping me move to the next step of my licensure journey as well as giving me tools to grow into becoming a better therapist.

I am so thankful for this program. Before beginning this program, when I thought of the law & ethics exam, I would freeze up. I struggle with test anxiety. This program made it easy to study. I felt prepared taking it when I walked into the exam room. I’ll be utilizing the clinical version. Thank you TDC!!!

I felt TDC prepared me well. I passed the first time.

I am usually not good at taking test but felt so calm and positive when I took the exam. My smile with the photo can adhere to that, I owned that picture! This program is the best! Thank you so foe your support, techniques, and knowledge with this exam.

I highly recommend TDC's program to anyone interested in studying for the Law and Ethics Exam. I felt very prepared entering the exam and I passed on my first attempt. Thank you TDC team for your support in this process!

I really enjoyed this course as the study material was easy to navigate. I learned a lot of great information and felt prepared for my exam. I highly recommend this to anyone needing assistance in preparing for their exam> Thank you TDC!

The exam made me skeptical. After the diligence witnessed in the practice quizzes and practice exams, I was worried that the actual exam was too easy. The confidence I had was overwhelming but I remember Amanda's voice in my head regarding the "AHA moment" and I stayed the course. In short, TDC aided me in passing both my ASWB in Virginia and my Law and Ethics exam when I relocated to California. Both were achieved on the first attempt! Thank you all for what you have done for myself, family and career!

I am so Grateful for TDC!!! The final exams and the practice test really help me prepare for the exam!

The TDC course was perfectly suited for my style of learning. I passed the test on my first try!

This course was extremely helpful-- not only the very well-organized content, but also the structure, which enabled me to pace myself in studying over the course of several weeks. The practice questions provided thought-provoking opportunities to apply the concepts. The coaching was fabulous for clarifying some of the more complex concepts. All in all, this was a supportive, information-packed, do-able program. Most importantly, I passed the Law and Ethics exam on my first try. Thank you Therapist Development Center!

This is a smart and functional test prep program. I used the TDC study program to prepare for my Law and Ethics exam and passed on the first attempt! I felt like the TDC program prepared me very well. I would even say I felt that the TDC exam prep had harder questions than the exam. The practice tests coupled with the rationales for the correct responses was a big help. The practice tests and rationales for the answers really helped me get in touch with my clinical thought process. I would recommend the TDC exam prep to anyone who is preparing for the Law and Ethics Exam!

Passed my law and ethics test the first time! Thank you so much!

This program was that i needed. It help guide me in understanding questions, and preparing for the test. I would highly recommended to anyone that needs the help.

I am so glad that I used therapist development to prep for my law and ethics exam. The mock exams and the audio that goes over your mock exams really helped me to be prepared. I passed my exam on the first try. I will definately be coming back when it is time to prep for licensing exam. Thank you so much, I couldn't have done it without you.

I am a mother of four boys. I never graduated high school but when I had my kids something ignited the fire inside me to achieve greatness and return to school. I obtained three degrees and began my journey with the idea of becoming a licensed social worker to provide treatment to my community. I have been handed opportunity after opportunity and have worked through God to help anyone I am able to work with. I never would have thought I would be writing this here today but I am and I did it. I am grateful for all of my experiences because it has led me down a path of healing not just for myself but for others. This course prepared me in so many ways and made me feel confident going into my exam. I sobbed as soon as I seen the PASS. It was a feeling of elation and it’s because I put in the work and accomplished yet another goal. Thank you for your guidance through this journey.

So grateful to be recommended to Therapist Development Center by my colleagues and co-workers with regards to taking the LCSW Law & Ethics Exam. This study system covered everything I needed to know to be prepared - from the strategies, tips, study plan, audio, and quick studies, to the quizzes, Practice and Mock Exams. The study plan and tasks really helped me to stay focused on a timeline that helped meet my goal of being organized, and feeling mentally prepared and ready prior to Test Day. I passed the exam on my first try!! I most definitely recommend TDC!!!

The TDC program is excellent to say the least!!!!! It helped me understand the concepts and the lectures were extremely clear and easy to follow. The coach Robin was very patient and professional throughout the entire process. I was allowed to receive extensions when my exam was cancelled due to the pandemic until I passed.

Thank you so much TDC!

This program is great! It really makes you think about every aspect of law and ethics versus memorizing answers. I also love the structure of the study timeline. It helped me stay accountable in studying and how much to study each day and week. I will definitely be using additional study materials TDC has to offer.
