I passed the Law and Ethics exam a few days ago on my second try. The practice exams and rationales were invaluable to me. Amanda taught me how to "think like the BBS" and that was key. I heard her voice in my head during the exam and that was super reassuring. I reached out to the coaches as needed and they were always really responsive and helpful. I still have to pass the second half but I'm feeling much more hopeful and confident now. This program was a game changer.
I am so thankful I made the decision to study with TDC. After experiencing the material first hand and passing the exam, I am confident I made the right decision when I purchased the bundle package with the Clinical study prep! I have already told my friends about TDC and now that I passed, I am confident they will use TDC as well!
TDC made the daunting process of studying so much more manageable. I appreciated the variety of teaching methods from the audio and quick studies to the practice exams and detailed rationales. Even the pep talk at the end was incredibly helpful. The program is very well thought out, very well organized and invaluable in helping me pass. I honestly don't know how anyone could pass the test without a study program like TDC! I am extremely grateful and it was well worth every penny spent.
After many attempts I finally passed the exams thanks to Amanda, Robin, Lindsay and the TDC material. Believe me, I tried two other programs but they did not meet my specific need (major test taking anxiety). With this program everything was laid out for me. All I had to do is the work and stick to the structured plan. After spending 23 years in the USMC, I can do structure which is exactly what I needed. So please don't do like I did, spend lots of money, time, energy and sleepless nights struggling to figure out what will work for you, just purchase the program and do the work. And if you're a veteran like I am, you can even get it for free. Thanks again, TDC!!
The Therapist Development Center exam prep program made all the difference. I felt prepared and as confident as I could be taking the MFT clinical exam. The study material in this program correlated extremely well to the test. Amanda presented it in a way that made sense so that I felt I had a practical understanding of each component and understood how to apply what I learned in the course on test day. Thank you so much!!
I really valued Amanda's rationales, extensive focus on testing strategies, encouragements from the coaches, and the fact that I was able to retake this course without having to pay again. Thank you!
I was feeling very overwhelmed with where to begin studying. I had no idea how to tackle this huge process and exam. I had several people tell me about TDC so I went ahead and bought it. Once I started the program, I felt much more confident and actually excited to study because I felt like I was actually accomplishing something. TDC really gave me insight into how to take the exam and helped me feel like I could actually do it! I passed the first time I took the exam and I know I could NOT have done it without TDC. The lectures were so helpful, but the mock exams and listening to the rationales of the exams I think is what really solidified everything in my head and helped me feel prepared!!!
Great focus on keywords and really unpacking the question. Process of elimination was my best friend. Overview of theories was great and the legal and ethical information was organized and explained well.
I studied for months at my own pace and took the mock exams early enough to study and learn from my mistakes. I also looked up information on my own about concepts touched on in the study material that I needed more information on. I printed out the PDFs and made a study binder, listened to the audio files a lot and no shame, but I had a half of a .25 mg Xanax the morning of to take the edge off. That was something my doctor and I planned together and I knew how it would affect me. I almost felt over prepared if that is a thing. I used all of your strategies and I not only passed, but you taught me so much more about being a therapist that I fell in love with my profession all over again and more passionately! I guess I renewed my vows to my profession! LOL!
I think what helped the most was the quizzes and the mock tests. Doing those and getting some wrong and then going back and looking at the reasoning for those was EXTREMELY helpful. Your voice was in my head for sure, and I feel like a much stronger clinician due to this program! I'm very grateful, I feel my confidence has grown tremendously and I am now looking forward to studying for the final LMFT exam!
This program not only refreshed me, it provided me with the knowledge that I did not receive in my graduate program. I was surprised how much information I did not know about the different theoretical therapies as well as law and ethics. The information was comprehensive, thorough and organized. Before purchasing this program, I attempted to study on my own using old text books, the internet and other materials. I was so lost and unmotivated. With TDC you know exactly what, when and how much to study. Wow... I learned so much and enjoyed each session. I looked forward to my study time especially listening to Amanda on the audios; her voice is clear, calm and direct. Thank you so much for developing this excellent program.
The TDC program was just what I needed. I couldn't stand studying for 3-4 months with other programs so this program worked very well with my schedule. I studied 5 days a week for 3-4 hrs a day and studied for less than 2 months and felt ready. Even though I was scoring in the 60-70s on my mocks, which was discouraging, I knew I felt ready and I knew the material very well. By the time I took the actual exam, it felt much easier than the TDC mocks! The strategies I learned with this program were what really helped separate this from the other programs. Thank you so much!!! I couldn't have done it without you and your support to stay with me until I passed!!!!!!
I felt that TDC narrowed the scope of material down to the most important material. I think I failed the first time, because the other agency I used incorporated too much information. My brain was on overload. With TDC, I felt that there was a nice balance of information, and the audios make it great for me to review material during lunch, while driving, or from anywhere I had a moment. Also, I enjoyed all of the practice exams, because I felt very prepared during the actual exam.
I found TDC to be great. I would just recommend to give yourself plenty of time to absorb and learn the material because it's a lot of material. Thank you for your support.
I studied for about 5 months, 10-12 hours per week and it was worth every minute. The audios were great! I have a long commute to work so it was perfect study time. The cheat cheats were my BFF's, we hang out every night for 2 hours after my husband and kids went to bed. Robin was of great support and answered all my questions and concerns in a timely manner. Followed the plan step by step and now I'm licensed!
I passed both the Law and Ethics and Clinical exam on the first try. The material was very well explained and the mocks were extremely helpful. Thanks TDC!!

I used other test material in my first 2 attempts and passed this time around using only TDC.
This program is amazing!!! If you want to pass look no further... this is it!
I'm so thankful to TDC for preparing me to pass this exam on my first try. I followed the program exactly, and I went through the whole thing twice. I also took advantage of the included coaching from Robin, and I purchased two hour-long sessions with her to go through some of my questions from the mock exams. I also practiced with the free practice questions on the blog. I appreciated the anxiety-management tips and recordings as well. The test was hard, but I felt well-prepared and am now thrilled to have it behind me! Thank you, TDC!
