The material at TDC if very thorough. It helped me prepare to take my exam. I liked how they taught you how to think and answer questions (first/best answer). Thanks for all of your help!! I listened to the audio multiple times, which helped me retain the information.
First, I want to say thanks for the multiple extensions. Just want to say that I passed my LMSW exam today scoring 121. Having a structured program was great. My exam was heavy on community development, defense mechanism, and stages of development. Learn the content and find ways that you can teach it to yourself for better understanding. Practice! Practice! Practice! Thanks for all you are doing for the next generation of Social Workers.
Jesus led me to TDC and Jesus helped me to pass the exam on my first try at 21 years old! This testimony AND THE GLORY BELONGS TO HIM! THANK GOD!
Truly the BEST preparation for the LMSW Exam!!
This course was extremely helpful and useful, I will definitely use this course for my LCSW.
It took me 6 years to schedule the LMSW exam and take it. I delayed taking the exam for so long because I was overwhelmed with the material I needed to review to pass the exam. I found out about TDC through a lot of online research and reading about others' experiences via Reddit. At first, I wasn't sure how it would go because I thought it would be just audio, but there is a combination of ways in which this program allows you to learn/study. Finding this program gave me the courage I needed to even schedule the exam. It is a highly structured program, but there is flexibility to make it work in your life. I'm glad I chose this program, and I will very likely use it again for my LCSW exam. While I was definitely still anxious on test day, the results don't lie - I scored 31 points over the passing rate I needed! The mock exams are no joke but I feel like they really prepared my endurance and skill.
I studied very hard for this exam and took it under very challenging circumstances (building fire alarms and evacuation alarms were blaring for 3 hours over my head due to an alarm malfunction). The testing center offered to reschedule my exam, but I had to take off a couple days of work, fly to my testing site, and book a hotel... No, it was now or who knows when. I was well prepared using TDC, in addition to engaging in countless practice questions from a YouTube account to practice the techniques needed to break down the questions. I needed 100 of the 150 scored points and I scored a 134. Despite the alarms and the resulting migraine, I was well prepared with TDC and was able to crush the test.
I really want to thank the entire TDC staff for what they've developed here for those of us who struggled with learning the information to pass these exams. I struggled for a minute, but TDC, along with other various tools, helped me to understand what my issues were, and I finally passed it after several attempts at it. Thank you again for aiding me in my LMSW journey and I look forward to seeing you all again when I pursue my LCSW. I will definitely be back.
The program provided some very helpful application tools.
I passed my exam on my second attempt. The difference between the first time I took the exam and the second time was TDC. I honestly don't think I would have passed if it weren't for TDC. The audio files and quick studies helped me a lot. So much thought was put into making this program and it shows! So many things that were once a little confusing to me, suddenly all made sense thanks to this program. I am an LMSW because of TDC and I am so glad I chose them for my studies!
I am very glad I opted to spend the money on TDC. I passed my LMSW exam with a decent margin on the first try. Both my undergraduate degree and Masters were online and not very "exam heavy", so I really felt like it had been about a decade since I took a standardized test. I always felt I was fairly smart and a good test taker, but I was quickly humbled when I started taking LMSW practice tests through Study.com and not passing them in my second-to-last semester of grad school. I thought - I've really got to get in gear. My current job opportunity hinged on passing and getting licensed. It was overwhelming to study while finishing my practicum, raising two toddlers, and finishing my last semester of school. Even though I had to think for a minute about the price, it was well worth it. This was the only study material I used from the moment I bought it. It was still hard, but I felt ready. I will come back to TDC no question when I am eligible for the LISW-CP exam in my state in (hopefully) a few years. Thank you for building this program!
TDC really prepares you for the LMSW exam with lectures, quizzes, and quick studies. Without the lectures in particular, I don’t think I would have passed. Let’s be honest, these exams are not easy; regardless of your experience as a social worker, you have to think the way the ASWB thinks in terms of ethics and social work practice to pass. TDC taught me how to think about the exam and how to answer challenging questions. Will use TDC when it’s time to take the LCSW exam!
I love the amount of materials shared in TDC. Having the timed exams was also very helpful for me. I have already recommended the program to others and will continue to do so. I will also use this program to prep for the LCSW.
I wasn't even able to study as much as I wanted. But the time I did spend with TDC 100% made the difference and allowed me to pass on my first try. Took my time covering the basics with this course but wasn't able to do any of the practice tests or mock exam. Still passed by over 25 points! Thanks for everything!
Therapist Development Center (TDC) was a true lifesaver as I prepared for my LMSW/LSW. The program was recommended to me by my practicum supervisor, and I am so appreciative she recommended TDC to me. The overall structure of the program allowed me to focus on particular topics instead of navigating through the material independently. I attempted to study for my licensure exam before TDC and I was feeling so frustrated and overwhelmed with all of the social work material being discussed. With the guidance of TDC, I felt I went into my exam prepared and confident with my reasoning skills in addition to a broad sense of social work knowledge. I look forward to utilizing TDC for my LCSW in the near future!
I went through a few times all the ways and reviewed a ton. It's all about learning to think a certain way in my experience.
Thank you for providing a structured program that was practical for me to use! I passed on my first try!
Thank you so much for your program! It was easy to navigate and take on information. I don’t think I would have been able to pass without it!
I passed the LSW exam. The test is difficult so I would highly recommend this program to anyone preparing to take the LSW exam. The questions are set up just like the ones on the actual exam which was very helpful. The questions in the study program are also challenging and engaging. Being able to view the answer rationales helped me immensely. The audio lessons were especially helpful as well. I do feel this program was instrumental in helping me to pass.
Following the TDC study plan helped me to feel prepared and less anxious on test day. It gave me the confidence to know that I could pass. And I did!
