I do love TDC for their break down on how to think, study, and attack the exams without anxiety. TDC did help me understand how i need to think and identify key words that change my perspective on what the questions are asking me.
This is the best course I have ever taken…I learned so much more than I ever imagined and could not have passed without this course. Thank you all at TDC!!! I took all of your voices into the room with me and I followed the strategies to the letter! I am so grateful for this course and I appreciate the constant, hard work all of you continue to put into this course!!!!
TDC is hands down worth the money. I’ve just got to get that out the way. The audio recordings, PDFs, and the practice exams is all you need. Much of what you think the exam is about: memorizing content… that’s not gonna help you pass. TDC knows this and teaches you the actual process to pass using key elements that help you dissect any question. The actual exam appeared identical to the practice exams. Not to mention the breakdown of rationales for each question on those practice exams. Don’t hesitate, get TDC!
Although I have been practicing for almost 10yrs, I actually waited until the very last minute to study and take the MFT Clinical Exam. I went through all the material as best as I could in 1week then took the test. I passed, but I know that my passing was largely a result of this study system. It assisted with prepping me on how to think during the test by preparing me to expect to see multiple answers that may apply and potentially be correct when approaching vignettes. Simply put, it helped to refocus my mind to say to myself "what would I do next if I was right there in the room with this client". Honestly, that was the best advise ever!!!
The study materials were excellent. The mock exams are not for the faint of heart. Be careful that the "boot camp" nature of the Mock exams doesn't discourage you. Wait to take them until you have adequately studied. Don't rush to take the mock exams. Honestly, if you do diligence to take your time and study, this material will do the trick. Listen to the teachings at normal speed and don't speed them up. Take your time and let Amanda get you a "W" for your first try. Thanks!
The TDC program was structured, the printable study guides organized and followed the audio lecture series. My favorite thing was listening to the lectures as I was driving to and from work! The mock exams were harder than the actual test! I am so glad I chose this study method!
I am so grateful for TDC! I would have been completely lost with this study resource! Thank you so much for all you do!!
I passed! 3rd attempt but I passed. I can admit that when I went through the TDC material on my first attempt I really did not attack the material and it showed when I tested and received a score of 95%. After getting through some depression I started studying again and even got a coach and scored a 97% as I focused more on theory versus assessment/planning/treatment which is the bulk of the test. Finally, I leaned in. I focused on theory, diagnosing and I spent a large portion of my time on the rationales. I purchased AATBS and attempted to study both programs BUT TDC was far more clear and concise. I worked on my anxiety and approached the test less anxious this time around. I did my best with the knowledge I received from the TDC program and allowed GOD to do the rest! I believe TDC is far more superior than AATBS. I believe that AATBS just sends you a bunch of material-an excessive amount of information without a clear roadmap. Whereas TDC lays it all out for you and fully prepares you for this test. I could have saved so much money had I approached TDC differently. NEVERTHELESS, I PASSED! To God Be ALL the Glory!!!
TDC is amazing. I've used it for both my Law and ethic and LMFT. Prior to TDC I tried everything and continued to fail. With TDC I passed my law and ethic on first attempt and my LMFT on second. Amazing program.
TDC helped me prepare for the exam and feel confident in the test room!
I passed my LMFT exam on the first try. TDC really prepared me, the mock exams were difficult and I thought I was not ready to take the LMFT exam (all my Mock exams were 60 or 61). Reality was I was overly prepared and needed to learn how to manage my anxiety with taking test and learn reading comprehension. The questions on the LMFT exam are similar to the Mock Exams. Stick to the program, have positive conversations with yourself and when in doubt take deep breaths to reset. You'll be surprised at how much you know. Review the mock exam rationals, and strategies on taking the test. They are really helpful!
TDC provided very comprehensive study material for the clinical exam! I appreciated the study tips provided, the course format, and the practice tests really prepared me for the test (I felt the practice tests were a bit harder than the actual exam actually)! Definitely recommend this course.
I must admit that the first time I took the LMCE I did not follow the TDC's steps the way it should. I failed the test. This time around, I followed the steps and passed. Follow the steps everyone.
The TDC prep course did a nice job of covering the knowledge topics that were on my MFT licensing exam, as well as significant preparation in understanding how to approach and think through problems. I also felt that the course did an excellent job of preparing me for the experience of taking this exam, including time management, and the experience of taking a long exam where it is difficult to assess how one is doing on any one problem or the exam as a whole. This really helped me to maintain focus and manage potential anxiety.
Excellent approach to this marathon type of experience. Topics and the presentations (written, oral, and the ability to repeat topics and mock exams) were extremely helpful. Coaching was supportive, reliable, and top notch.
Thanks for all your help.
Following all suggestions, narrow the answer to two choices, and match your final answer back to the stem. Super helpful. The handouts with each section are also very useful in organizing the information. The program itself is well-organized, easy to follow. Highly recommend!
I believe TDC provided an excellent comprehensive resource with outstanding support
I am a HORRIBLE test taker with severe ADHD but I feel and felt so confident going into my test using this program. Everything Amanda said would show up on the test did. Exactly how she said I would feel during the test was exactly how I felt. I wouldn't recommend doing ANYTHING else but strictly TDX.
Thank you TDC for helping me pass, the exam was brutal but I passed first time. I'm an older MFT, 50+ and getting licensed has been a massive professional goal. I can now say: "I'm a fully licensed psychotherapist." This is very rewarding. Thank you again TDC for your help.
