I couldn't have done it without TDC! I studied for 5 months, listened to the recordings multiple times, took the mocks multiple times, and just rehearsed the information. I also brought the information into my current practice with clients. I also took advantage of Robin, a TDC coach. She helped me with my time management and anxiety; she was very helpful. I would definitely recommend TDC.
TDC was perfect!! So thorough and really helped me construct a doable way to study with my busy full time work schedule and busy life. I couldn't have passed without this!
TDC made it so much easier for me to be concise and focused with my studying, rather than feeling overwhelmed by endless information. The schedule and structure was really grounding and made it possible to not let studying completely take over my life, but rather become a part of my routine. I felt really prepared and was able to use the tools offered to quell any anxiety that arose during the actual exam. I am so grateful for this program and feel like it was essential to my success during this process! Thank you so much!
TDC really prepared me to tackle the test and also prepared me to be a better clinician. I now am so much more confident as a therapist because I am much more aware of vital law and ethics information. The strategies Amanda provided allows me to utilize shortcuts to remembering information, not only for the test, but also as a clinician. I appreciate the growth I experienced using TDC. While the information was focused on the test, the concepts were broad and covered extensive details that helped to solidify the core concepts for me. My anxiety decreased as a result. I felt prepared for the test and what it might ask of me, and knowing that regardless of whether or not I was tested on the information, I had internalized it for my own learning and conceptualization. I now can say with confidence that I have a solid understanding of law and ethics in general. The foundation of this knowledge was solidified with the help of TDC.
I was pleased to be able to start studying many months before the test and extend the access to the materials without any questions being asked of why I needed to extend. The access is not only extended if you have taken the test, but even if you haven't and would like more time to study the material.
I appreciated being able to email the coaches and ask questions. This was vital to my growth in understanding and internalizing the test structure. The coaches informed me of certain strategies they found helpful and I incorporated those into my studying. It was vital to have this personalized support, as the TDC coaches were aware of what was on the test and why it was on there, and thus were familiar with it. I then was able to easily ask for more help with certain questions. The strategies were helpful, including but not limited to, knowing to eliminate answers and being aware that there might be questions where the test might present me with not so great answers was essential to boosting my confidence for the test. If I hadn't used this test prep program, I wouldn't have been aware of the design of the test and what I might encounter.
I also would like to emphasize that the rationales given by Amanda are the best rationales out there. I used mocks from multiple companies, and TDC rationales are the best because they explain the reasoning behind the answer and the detail Amanda included in her rationales was so helpful.
Thank you for the support and giving me time to process the strategies and information. I appreciated being able to easily review information I had already gone over but still wanted to review. It was so easy to use this program. The TDC staff was so supportive throughout this process, and I look forward to using TDC to help pass the Clinical exam.
I’m so grateful that I was able to study with the Therapist Development Center materials. I practiced going through all of the steps and I passed the MFT Clinical exam the first time! While you are taking the test it may seem easy at first, but it gets hard toward the end. I feel TDC helped with every topic that was on the test, in fact I was overly prepared. Even though I was scoring low the first time taking the mock exams, once hearing the rationales, I scored better the second time. One thing that was helpful was being able to hear the rationales of the answers I got wrong on the mock exams. Stay confident while taking the test and remember everything that was said. I would definitely recommend TDC for the MFT Clinical Exam!
In addition to using TDC, I purchased mock/practice exams from Gerry Grossman. I would have liked to have had more mock exams from TDC. I liked the TDC mock exams a whole lot better than GG's. Many of the GG's mock exam questions are odd or irrelevant. I will recommend TDC over GG to anyone who asks. I also used TDC for the MFT Law & Ethics exam and now I can recommend TDC for both exams. I'm super grateful for TDC's program!!! Thanks so much!!!
TDC's exam prep program worked well for me! I passed the clinical exam on my first try last Saturday. The lectures and material overall are thorough and adequately prepared me for the exam. In addition, the mock exam questions seem similar to the ones on the actual exam. Whenever I had issues with either the material or how to proceed with my studying, I reached out to Robin and received a response in 1-2 days. Robin's feedback was always clear, constructive, and supportive. I would also like to add that Amanda's pep talk at the end solidified what I needed to do on exam day: LEAN IN. I found this framing of how to tackle the exam to be quite powerful. Thank you so much TDC!
TDC is well structured and thorough. The audio/visual style was perfect in helping me stay on track, maintain focus and to absorb the information. Thank you!!!
Thank you so much for being with me until I pass. Great program, great support and I highly recommend it. Ready to jump to the second one with this great program.
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.
