Course Reviews

I don't find right words to express my gratitude and admiration to the program. I am deeply, deeply thankful with TDC. Still I can;t believe I passed. I am so so elated and thankful.

Thanks Therapist Development Center for helping pass the first LCSW test. The material really prepared me to pass within the first try.

I thought Therapist Development Center prepared me extremely well for the CA Law and Ethics. The "Top 30 Topics" section covered everything that was on the exam. I listened to that section and took notes (made myself some note cards) and I remembered those cards during the exam. I felt prepared going into the exam (of course, a bit nervous) but remembered what I learned during the month prior to the test. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend TDC to anyone. The questions were structured incredibly similarly to the final mock exams - it was perfect. Thank you and a great program!

FANTASTIC study program that will help understand and learn all the Laws and Ethics for the exam. It's at your own pace and easy to follow along. I could not recommend this program more, I will definitely be using it for my clinical exam next!

I have never been a good test taker, not knowing where to begin when studying such broad concepts. This program made so much sense and prepared me to know exactly the topics that I needed to understand and be comfortable with. I went into the test feeling prepared and confident.

As a Latina immigrant that I speak English as a second language, just graduated last year from UCB, it is crucial to have the best training possible to understand the complexity of this society, and of course, the legal and ethical standards by which I have to perform my work, so I'm so please and relaxed that I can count on your training to obtain my LCSW in a couple of years. So see you next time.

The tools provided will completely prepare anyone, providing one follows the steps! And you will hear Amanda's voice with each stem! lol

As an individual whom English is the second language, this program is very user friendly. The playback availability to listen to the answer rationales and topics made it easy to review different subject matters at my own pace. Consequently, this made comprehension of theory and knowledge easier leading to the evolution to build confidence to pass the test. Further, the layout of the website is simple, user friendly and the study materials are inviting, specific, concise, and focused on the subject matter.

As the worlds worst test taker (truly) I'm hesitant about all prep programs. But I passed! AND the test actually felt easy in comparison to the finals few tests on TDC. Great prep, rationale, learning how to take the test/and what they are looking for is key. TDC is really the way to go!

Thank you TDC and Coach Robin for helping me past LCSW Law & Ethics test. I finally passed after the 3rd attempt and it feels so great. This program if followed correctly will guarantee a pass. I will definitely use TDC to Study for the Clinical ASWB test and I recommend to all my friends and colleagues as well.

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!

Never studied for this exam went in last year and missed it by two according to my results and percentages. Thought i'd better study this time around and found you through other LCSW I work with. Thank you! You really were with me the whole time. Looking forward to the clinical program shorty. I believe I have my hours to move forward, and I'm excited.

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!
