Course Reviews

I took my MSW exam 3 times prior to today and it felt completely defeating I wanted to give up. But, I am so happy I didn’t and decided to invest in this program. Today I passed my exam 7 points over than what was needed!!!! I am so beyond ecstatic and I am so grateful I took this program. I suffer from severe test anxiety and this program was exactly what I needed to feel prepared and confident!!! I did it!!!!! :)

TDC's program is an excellent source. I benefited a lot from the recordings and quick studies. They provide great explanations and examples along with breakdowns of questions. I'm a visual learner but the audio recordings were still beneficial for me as I was able to listen to them when driving to work or just cleaning around the house. They have great customer service and respond quickly to questions. I also enjoyed the videos posted on YouTube and their blog- both were helpful to change the monotony of studying the same material. If you haven't checked out their blog then I encourage you to do so because there are plenty of practice questions you can learn from. I highly recommend this program as I will be using them for my clinical license. Thank you, TDC!


I have pretty bad test anxiety, therefore I was extremely nervous about taking the license exam. I even extended it longer post graduation than I would have liked. TDC study program put me at ease and gave me the uplifted confidence I was seeking. Being able to study at my own pace and review the information multiple times were two components of the program I appreciated and utilized to my benefit. To all involved in putting this program together and for all the continued relevant revisions made along the way, I thank you for your time and dedication to increasing the number of licensed practitioners in our field.

I felt confident going into the exam. I felt like I had an overall comprehension on breaking down questions. I will definitely be using it for the next exam!

I have been working towards passing the LSW exam since 2018. I have sat to take the test over 4 times came up short. I consistently missed a passing mark by 5 points. I have used other study materials and countless hours of studying. One day while searching for new approaches to take for studying, I came accross a youtube video. A young lady promoting therapydevelopmental center. I figure what I have to loss. So I took a chance paid the money. It's one of the best decisions I made. With Amanda help this time I was able to pass the exam with a score of 102 correct. Amanda's focus on reasoning throught the questions was super helpful. I have already recommended this prep to friends an associates. Thank you for all your help and advice. I will be using this prep again for my LCSW.

I passed with TDC on my first try! I got 126 & needed 98. I didn’t know where to start studying when I started and TDC gave me a clear path to the knowledge base I needed. They helped me set clear weekly goals, understand the concepts, and understand how to answers the questions the way the test is designed. I am so happy to say LMSW!!!

So on the date I went to schedule the exam the only date/time available left before my 1 year registration time expired was 2 weeks later. Basically, I forced myself to at least try even if I only had 2 weeks to study. I graduated from grad school in 2019 and haven't studied a thing since then. All I had was my work experience so TDC really came through for me with the specifics. The prep was perfectly structured and everything was explained very clearly and thoroughly.

I needed a 98 to pass and I passed with a 110/150.
Thank you TDC I will definitely be back when its time for me to take the LCSW!

I last tried to take the exam back in 2015 and failed. I tried studying with different material and felt high levels of anxiety. I was encouraged to try the TDC program from a previous coworker who passed with it. I only had 3 weeks leading up to my exam to study with the TDC. I buckled down while still working and going on vacation and through the program along with a lot of prayer, I passed!!! Thank you for this great program. It helped me learn that I'm not only visual but also an auditory learner!! Thank you TDC!!

TDC was honestly the best thing I could ever have invested in my future, very thorough reviews and information. I liked how you focused more on material that would be relevant to the exam and properly answering questions; rather than just basic information for knowledge. Thank you TDC for being a part of my journey and after my 3rd attempt I am finally a Licensed Social Worker

Let me just say first that I have test anxiety to the extreme! I was so nervous leading up to the exam that I changed my date a few times. I didn't feel confident with the study materials that I had, so I decided to go for ir and purchase TDC and I am so glad I did. It was broken down in a way that wasn't overwhelming, and I felt like the way that the study schedule is structured was so manageable, especially with working while trying to study. I would seriously recommend this program to anyone. Thank you so much for helping make my dream of licensure a reality!

I graduated with my MSW 10 years ago and never took the LMSW exam. I was worried about taking the exam due to the gap. A friend recommended this study guide to me. I used this study course over a 3 week period and was able to pass my exam on the first try! Not only did I pass the exam, but I did so by a landslide! The coaches were responsive and really good about helping me understand HOW to take the exam and how to answer the questions. I would highly recommend this course!

TDC was an incredible study system for me. I excelled on the exam thanks to it! I utilized other study sources to fill in knowledge gaps, but I would not have passed without this program.

I truly believe that using TDC prep really helped me pass my LMSW exam, thank you!

This is my third attempt at passing the ASWB LMSW exam and I PASSED!!! Prior to Therapist Development Center, I tried many other ways to my studies. Third time around I was willing to do anything which brought me to look into this program. I really felt that it broke everything down for me to zone in and focus on one specific topic at a time. This allowed me to not be so overwhelmed with my studies. I also loved that I could see it, hear it, and hard copy study it. Using this system really does help!! THANK YOU!!!

The exam had alot of community questions and terminology I didn't learn, like broker. It was a lot of reasoning and less recall questions. I left prepapared but the exam was still difficult. I wrote a scripture on my pad and kept referring to it throughout the exam. The content you provide is very good. Thank you

So grateful for this program. I wouldn’t have passed my LMSW exam without it.

This program was an excellent study tool. It did require commitment but it paid off and I was able to get the success I achieved. Thank you TDC.

I really felt that I was prepared to take this exam thanks to the organization and structure of the TDC program. A lot of what I studied was on the exam, so I felt confident throughout majority of the test. Even when I came across questions I wasn't familiar with I was still able to use test-taking strategies to help choose the best answer. Overall, TDC is a great program and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for study materials for their LMSW. I passed on my first attempt!!!!

TDC is an amazing study tool. They REALLY stay this you until you pass your exam. The mock exams are extremely close to the actual exam. I loved the listen and learn because, if you’re like me, I am a visual and auditory learner. I am also very thankful that you offer this program free of charge to Veterans. I highly recommend this program!!!!

The information presented is thorough and concise. It is given in a structured, easy to follow format. The handouts aid one with the ability to study offline as often as needed. TDC aided me in going into my LMSW exam with little to no anxiety nor worries as to if I would pass.
