Course Reviews

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you!!! I have been trying to pass this exam for 2 solid years; 4 attempts later I am proud to say that I am an LMSW!!!! I have worked so hard to earn that L but I definitely couldn't have done it without this program; I have tried multiple study programs in the past (online study courses, ASWB study guides and flashcards, Dawn Apgar, ect.) I truly feel that the structure of this program along with the multiple ways of learning the material is what helped me pass; I went into the exam this time around feeling SO MUCH more calm and confident--- I had NEVER been that calm going into the exam before! I can't recommend this program to enough people who are struggling like I was to pass this exam---it was WELL WORTH the investment! I plan to purchase this program again when it comes time for me to take and PASSSSSS my LCSW exam.

TDC has come to my rescue twice now! Six years ago I purchased the LMSW study course to prepare for the LBSW exam which I aced on first try. It was noteworthy that I had been in the field for over 30 years so the exam was daunting. I purchased the course again while I was in school getting my MSW for the great handouts on DSM and diagnoses. I rescheduled the exam three times this time and am so glad Emily, the coach encouraged me to do that the last time or may or may not have passed at that time. Thank you TDC and Amanda. See you in around 3000+ supervision hours if I come back for LCSW!

I passed on my first try! I am pleased with the results and plan to utilize again with my LCSW boards

This test prep package is amazing! It condenses everything down so studying is manageable and not so overwhelming. Having a study plan and short study sessions helped me budget my time. I passed my exam and only missed 17! You read that right, I answered 133 out of 150 correctly!

When I received my undergrad in social work, I attempted the exam and failed it. I was going to attempt to take it again but I didn't. When I decided to go back to school to get my Masters in Social Work I was afraid I would have the same outcome. I knew I needed help understanding how to take the exam and my classmate mentioned TDC. Once I started reviewing for the exam and what to look for as far the recall, application and reasoning questions I felt much better about my odds going in to take the exam. Even though I was nervous I had to let that go and just take the questions as they come and answer them and not second guess or change my answers. I'm thankful for TDC, I passed my LMSW exam on the first try!!!!

I took the LMSW exam for the first time in August 26,2019. I felt prepared. I studied using flash cards, ASWB practice exam, test prep and other practice exams from friends. I was excited to take the exam and was sure I would passed. I ended up failing by 4 points. I was discouraged. I wondered why did God bring me this fair to fail. I didn’t let it stop me. I prayed harder. I heard about TDC from two colleagues and decided to purchase it. I followed through the study plan in 5 weeks. After completing the first time I started the program over a second time. At this point I was becoming less anxious about the exam. January 11,2020 I took the exam a second time and scored way above the needed points to pass. I was more confident and less anxious while taking the exam because of the guidance and prep from TDC. Some of the exact questions in the study material appeared on the test with a different vignette. TDC really helped with my anxiety and made me feel in control of the exam. I can officially say I am a Licensed Master Social Worker.

Graduating from my Master's Program gave me a very short-lived sense of relief because I knew that the LMSW exam was going to be right around that corner. If it wasn't for TDC, I would have no idea where to start or how to organize myself. TDC made my exam prep so easy and efficient, I can't thank them enough for creating it. My biggest sense of gratitude lies in TDC's ability to have me considering my own physical and mental health during this stressful time. I have never come across a study prep that had me following through on physical exercise and healthier eating habits while simultneously helping me study for such a big exam. One thousand thank yous!

TDC was very very helpful for me in terms of making the content digestible and keeping me organized. I also loved the audio components that I could use when I was in the car.

I tried different approaches and none helped, even the tutorial day session. I took the 50 topics quiz and scored an 65%. I went through the program and got a a 73.5% on the actual test.

This study system helped me significantly- especially with the application and reasoning questions. It taught me how to think about the “first, next, best and most” questions. I loved the audios. I could listen to them as I was driving to work, etc. I also liked how it got me organized and lined out my study sessions. I don’t think I would have passed without this program.

I received my MSW many years ago. I have been working in a different field. A few months I decided to apply for my social work license so I can practice. I searched on line for review courses. There are many review courses out there. I just picked up TDC. That was the best choice I could ever make. This program is amazing, well organized, and well structured. Once you follow the TDC guidelines and study the course contents, you will pass in your first try. Thank you TDC.

TDC has great ability to help you prepare for the test, I am an audible learner and being able to utilize the audio is how I prepared and studied for the exam.

I passed my exam on the first attempt, with 28 points more than I needed to pass!!!! The TDC program helped me build confidence and competence as prepared for the test, and even more importantly, I feel that the knowledge reinforced by TDC will help me in my real life work with clients. Amanda helps shape your ways of thinking in order to train you for the exam, her test taking tips helped to keep me calm as I attacked my exam! TDC was like an actual study buddy in my months leading up to the exam, and it was worth every penny!

I went from failing it twice to passing it the 3rd time with TDC! I got a 76% on the final mock exam and my confidence went through the roof and had me mentally prepared!


I have dyslexia and ADHD and have struggled with exams my whole life. I had previously failed twice was 5 points and 2 points. I nearly gave up hope but this program is INCREDIBLE! I owe passing by seven points to this program. Without a doubt, this was the best purchase I could have made. I only studied this and I passed!!.

The first time I took the exam, I did not pass by 3 questions. After completing the study prep program I was able to go into the test more confidently. My anxiety was much lower and I believe this allowed me to stay focused. Thank you to the whole therapist development center for the support!

I fell this program is really good and covers the necessary materials!

TDC You ARE THE BEST!! I could have screamed in testing center when I saw PASS but I didn't want them not to validate my scores. I am so happy because having my license opens up so many opportunities for me. I graduated with my masters almost 15 years ago and never so the need to take the exam until recently. Studying day and night paid off and I can finally sleep tonight. Now to job search in a big way. Once I find out SC state requirements for LISW, I'll be back. I wish you all could market your study system to college campuses, it changes the way you think, process and study in a big way. Very appreciative to TDC because you all helped my life to change in a BIG WAY!!

I took so many mock exams which I would pass - barely. The night before the exam I had the idea to see if there was a pattern to the questions I missed and there was! I noticed that I was not using any common sense, I was trying too many strategies and not just thinking about what I would really do in the scenario. I took a different approach on the exam and passed with 114 points - I needed 99. Knowing all of the background information that TDC offers was invaluable. I will use again for the LCSW exam in a few years! :)
