I just took my exam this afternoon and PASSED!! I adhered to the methods outlined in this course, drew my "scoring grid" before starting the exam, used the FRAMING for every question, followed your advice/guidance with respect to marking X's, moving on, etc. There were naturally some questions I marked, and when I went back to them, I immediately used my FRAMES on the answers and made very few changes (if any). I appreciate your course so much...and really valued the insights that you give in the "lectures", they really helped keep my mind focused on the correct answers and stopped me from wondering or guessing or assuming. THANK YOU!
TDC rocks! I so appreciated all your research into the way the BBS creates the exams. Your analyses, and the creation of your test materials based on these analyses, are spot on. Making use of the strategies (10 Steps to Passing the CVE), and also reminding us that we DO NOT have to memorize anything (as you say,"the answers are in the vignette!") made ALL the difference. I have been disabled by test anxiety for most of my life. This time I sailed through the exam calmly and efficiently with time left over. Thanks so much, TDC!!
Thank you TDC for your course! I just passed my vignette exam. One of my employees told me about you and how you coach people with this exam. This study course was exactly what I needed to stream line my studying. Thank you again for all your hard work in creating this material!
Words cannot express how helpful the TDC was for me. I used AATBS previously and failed 3 TIMES!! I was hopeless, frustrated and ready to give up. The audio rationales were sooo helpful and helped prepare me exactly for this exam. The other testing programs were a waste of time, overwhelming and so confusing. I found myself memorizing their material and trying to remember useless facts, compared to Therapist Dev. Center where I ACTUALLY grasped concepts and understood the materials/topics discussed. My hope, confidence and motivation has been restored in this process thanks to Amanda and I look forward to using this for the clinical vignette part. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM to everyone!!!!
I wanted to let you know that I FINALLY PASSED the clinical vignette THANKS TO THE TDC AND YOUR STUDY MATERIAL! For the first time in 2/1/2 years of trying to get through these tests, I walked in feeling like I was prepared and ready with very little anxiety which was very high in the past. I so wish that I had known about your program for the written part of the test. . . it certainly wouldn’t have taken me 3 times to pass!
I can’t recommend the TDC web site and materials enough to others and believe me, I do. I tell others I know that if they want to pass this test, they REALLY need to contact the TDC. Your prices, patience, and the ability to ask for more time ( which I had to do numerous times) is way beyond any of the other study programs out there. It’s another incredible gift from you that you’re truly doing this to help us pass!
Well, obviously, I can’t say enough and I wish I could say more other than THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Please let me know if I can, in any way, be of help/service to you and your generous program.
I used TDC’s program for the second MFT licensing exam and passed it on the first try. I found that using the program greatly increased my confidence and it was EXACTLY what I needed to get me thinking the way I needed to pass the WCV exam. Amanda’s approach provides excellent preparation and is very specific in terms of how she frames questions for arriving at the best answer. I truly appreciate all your study materials, support and attention and I would highly recommend TDC to anyone who wants to study for the MFT licensing exam.
I have been exposed to Gerry Grossman and AATBS materials and had the good fortune of deciding to go with Amanda Rowan's program on the second test. I can say without equivocation that TDC's program gets you ready to pass without so much of the extraneous materials that the other test prep companies have the predilection for including. Amanda is precise, direct, pragmatic and does not bog you down with so much unnecessary stuff - just what you need, nothing that you don't need. I studied for 2.5 weeks and passed! Thank you Amanda and TDC!
I just wanted to thank you for helping me pass both my first and second MFT exams! I purchased the material after not passing my standard exam the first time and knew I needed a different approach. I was so much more prepared the second time around and passed and a few months later took the second exam and passed the first time! I have recommneded this to several coworkers and friends who are prepping for their exams. Thank you again it is a huge relief and so validating to have passed this hurdle in my career.
I just passed my MFT Clinical Vignette Exam! TDC was the only test prep service I used (for both the Standard Written and the Clinical Vignette) and I passed both on my first try! For this last exam, Amanda's strategies were super helpful! I felt very prepared, and was so thankful to have found TDC to help me prepare for my exams. Thank you so, so much!
Just passed the vignette exam! I used your exam prep for both exams and it was fantastic! I used the GG exam prep for the first, before finding out about your course and using your prep in addition. His exam prep was useless for the first test. If i hadn't found your course, I might not have passed! Your preparation for the tests was "right on" in both cases. would definitely recommend your course. Many thanks!
I just got back from Exam #1 and I passed! I wanted to let you know right away and thank you for your amazing program. As you know, as a full-time working parent, I had very little time to prepare, and I wanted to find the most efficient way to study in a two-month time frame, given these constraints. I'm so glad I found you and The Therapist Development Center. Your audio lectures taught me exactly what I needed to know without overwhelming me with minutia that wasn't covered, and whenever I saw something confusing on the exam, I took a breath and thought, "What would Amanda do and why? If I were discussing this vignette with Amanda, how would SHE reason this one out?" This past week, when I had some last-minute questions, Asya was invaluable in providing me with articulate distinctions in the rationales, and I used that knowledge and thought process several times on the test today, too.
The main thing, though, that I think I got from your lectures was a sense of how to think and stay calm during the exam. Anyone can throw diagnoses, legal requirements, theory terms, etc. at a student. But you explained all of it in a memorable real-world context that both made sense and was very representative of the actual exam questions. You also always conveyed a sense of "Don't over-complicate it" and "You know more than you think by having completed your 3000 hours," rather than going into the mode of, "If you don't memorize these million things or take a bajillion full-length practice tests, you won't pass the exam." You were right: I didn't need to do any of that.
Thank you so much for helping me pass today! I'm going to sign up for exam #2 shortly.
I passed the clinical vignette MFT exam on 5/1/13!!!! I was prepared and ready to take it. Once again your study materials were superb and right on track. I especially liked your new online mock 1 & 2 exams. I've submitted my paperwork for licensure. I could not be more excited about being an MFT now!!! Thank you again for both of your study programs!
I passed!!! Took the MFT Written Exam last week and SUCCESS!! I studied about 8 weeks and even in the midst of a family emergency (with a father in the hospital due to a serious motorcycle accident) was able to stay focused all thanks to the TDC. The material had me focused on the material I needed to know, and Amanda's tips on how to study carried me through. With a marathon like this, I would recommend no other than the TDC for exam prep. Thanks again!
I would like to say “Thank you” for helping me to pass both MFT exams. Since I failed the written exam with other prep companies, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make it through with this process again. However, your study materials were simple, direct, and touched by your personal support. The mock exams were very similar to the real exam and I was able to pass the first exam with confidence without any other companies' mock exams.
I studied 5 weeks for the 2nd exam (reviewed few times) and I felt confident with your framing technique and guidance. The 2nd exam was much easier for me with your study guide and I was able to answer questions very quickly. I enjoyed listening to your voice while studying and you gave me a great deal of positive energy and encouragement through you voice. I can't thank you enough for the wonderful program and I am very much grateful to found your program.
Thank you again and I couldn't do it without you.
Thanks so much for the wonderful study materials and grounded perspective you provide, I passed my second test! I really appreciate the support I felt from you as I went through this rather stressful process. Your advice and guidance were with me in the test, as I weighed mt answers I could hear Amanda's voice talking me through the questions. Beyond being supportive your advice is ethically and clinically sound and ultimately studying for this test made me a more intelligent clinician, which is the whole point!
A heart filled with gratitude for your study program. Your program gave me the confidence after failing the first time. I am ready to sign up for the Clinical vignette, and I know with your help I can pass this exam!! Thank you so much!
I passed my MFT Clinical Vignette exam today and truly found your prep to be invaluable. The night before I took the exam I took a few of a competors tests and stopped half way through because the answer sets and rationals were so wrong! Your prep helped the test make sense. I am so fortunate I found your service. Thank you again!
I want to share with TDC that I have passed my MFT CVE just about two hours ago!!! I want to take this opportunity to thank Amanda for her wonderful program and all of her strategies that helped me achieve MY GOAL of becoming a LICENSED MARRIAGE & FAMILY THERAPIST! Your “Question Framing” for the CVE helped me tremendously!
I used both the AATBS and Grossman programs and failed my MFT Standard Written a couple of times. I was fortunate to hear about TDC from a colleague. I was able to pass both of my exams on the FIRST ATEMPT after using TDC's program!
I highly recommend Therapist Development Center, for anyone who is planning on taking both the MFT SWE and CVE!
Thank you so very much!!
I spent months studying via another test prep company while I awaited approval to take my exams. Using their home study materials and test banks, I still had trouble ever getting my scores above 70%, and I felt confused and irritated during every practice test. Two days before my scheduled test date, in a panic, two colleagues recommended Amanda Rowan's program, and said they had similar experiences. I postponed my exam 3 weeks and completed the entire Written Exam program in 2. After only 48 hours, using Amanda's test taking strategies, I had already increased my sample test scores to 80%, and by the end of the 3 weeks I was easily able to score between 80-90% without even thinking.
The 2nd exam was even easier (I admit I "freaked out" during the 1st, but used Amanda's suggestions to take a break and regroup). By question 27 I already knew I had passed the exam, and was frankly surprised at how straightforward it seemed when using Amanda's methods to reframe every question and easily rule out wrong answers.
I can't thank you enough for this program!
Just passed the Standard Written Exam yesterday!!! Thank you Amanda and everyone on staff at TDC, I am absolutely convinced that your program made the difference. By the way, I only studied for a little more than 2 weeks (although I'm not seeing clients now and teach online, so I didn't have to go to work, and made studying my full-time job). Studying at home at my own pace was absolutely right for me. I followed your instructions, and believe that reviewing my marked items was very helpful, using the "aha" rule. I had marked about 40 questions, and changed the answers to 14 of those. I finished with an hour left, and used every minute left to first review my marked items, and then to review the entire test. While going through the whole exam, I was amazed at the confidence I had in so many of my answers. Thank you for supporting me in accessing my own strengths! Just a warning..PSI is not a perfect technology zone, so watch your expectations, if you have problems don't let it stress you out during the exam! I had lots of problems with my computer freezing up (they told me to just keep hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del...LOL), and worst of all, for myself and two others who finished at about the same time, the server crashed right while it was supposed to give our results!!! They told us, oh well, we'll just mail you the results. The other two people left but I refused to go until I had my official results! Thank God they were able to resolve it. Just wanted to pass that on, to remember that nothing is 100% with computers, and anything can happen, don't let it get to you! As a few others have mentioned, there were several questions that I had already seen in our sample tests, and I did get a lot of questions on couples work and family systems theory. Good luck everyone! TDC rocks, thanks so much!!
