I have been studying lightly for a year due to waiting for the BBS to approve my hours. TDC was wonderful in extending my purchase. The past 5 weeks I studied 4-5 days a week, exercising 5 days a week, and listening to the audio consistently. When I completed all tests, I did a review as suggested by Amanda. I will say, I did poorly on each of the first rounds of tests and then reviewed and did well. I got sick two weeks before and changed my date. I still was not well the day of the test, however, I did not give up. The final mock test, I did bad because of being sick. However, I immersed myself in reviewing the diagnoses and theories for the last 48 hours prior to taking the test. All I can say, is I passed. I have no idea the score. At no time during the test, did I feel as though I were failing or winning. At one point (about half way through) I thought it was too easy and I started freaking out thinking something was wrong. I took a break, fueled up, and decided nothing was wrong! I did not use any other program or outside help. TDC rocks! Amanda, you were in there with me. I also bookmarked 18 questions. Had 20 minutes left. And only changed 5 that I felt I had the 'a-ha' moment, just as you suggested! Thank you so much.
The anxiety and worry were difficult to control. However, trusting the process is key. Part of that process being (like Amanda said) that you do not feel like you are passing during the test and to accept that discomfort. A combination of time management skills as well as a solid grasp of theoretical interventions were key for passing the test. Also the state dependent learning, which were rituals that were not only helpful, but relaxing as well (lavender oil on the temples and chest; peppermint oil on the lower back). Thank you TDC, thank you Amanda and thank you to all the "behind the scenes" individuals who make this study program possible.
A big shoutout and thank you to Amanda at TDC! I passed the LMFT clinical exam on my first attempt and felt extremely prepared to “attack” the exam after completing the program one time.
I passed exam after failing it 4x's! Originally, I worried that TDC didn't provide enough practice test but I was wrong. I'd encourage anyone who is struggling to pass the LMFT exam, to trust the philosophy and strategies of TDC. I also invested in a TDC coach a few weeks before the exam because I struggle with test anxiety and moments of shear panic of failure. The coach changed my life. I was able to stop over thinking, which reduced anxiety during the entire exam! I believe this was instrumental in why I passes the exam. Lastly, I followed the TDC curriculum 3x's before I took the LMFT exam. Thank you TDC, this is the only study program I recommend. I spent over 2000k on other study programs, lured by the offer of lots of practice test but don't do it! Trust TDC, and if you can, private coaching. You only want to take this exam once! Trust me.
After many false starts, I finally dealt with my anxiety and scheduled a firm date for the clinical exam. I took Amanda's voice with me in the exam room and "talked" through each and every question, as if Amanda was right next to me. I engaged with the question as well as the answer stem, and I was able to eliminate wrong answers. This has been a long journey and I am so grateful for the ENTIRE TDC team! Thank you so much and I will see you in the land of "Licensed" Marriage and Family Therapists!!!
I passed my LMFT Clinical exam today!! I went through the program in 9 weeks, and reviewed the material before my final mock exam and before the exam. I followed Amanda’s instructions, fueled up during the morning, took a break during the test and ate a snack then continued. I finished the test right on time! It feels surreal. I used TDC for the Law and Ethics as well. I passed both my Law and Ethics and Clinical exam my first try with the help of TDC.
If it wasn't for TDC I don't think I would have passed my Law & Ethics or Clinical Exam on the first try. TDC helped me to understand what the exam was testing me for. It prepared me to manage my time and become familiar with the exam format which helped me to decrease my test anxiety so it would not hinder me from passing both exams. I highly recommend TDC prep exam program.
I highly recommend TDC. I passed the MFT exam on the first try. I loved that I could put on the audio anywhere I went which made it easy and convenient. During the exam, all I kept hearing was Amanda's voice guiding me through each question. I loved how structured and organized your program was. Your preparation and the mock exam are like taking the real exam. Thank you so much for your wonderful program.
One-million thanks! I really appreciated Amanda's style throughout the whole program. She helped me stay calm, taught me how to pace myself, and was very clear and matter-of-fact about the material. This program helped take a massive amount of information and condense it to it's essentials, in such a user-friendly way. I also appreciated the focus on self-care, managing anxiety, and understanding the testing process when the big day came. Despite my nerves, I felt pretty confident walking into the testing center, and was able to "lean-in and attack" the exam just as she told me to. When I felt overwhelmed, I let her internalized voice guide me, and it helped me feel like I wasn't alone. Now that it's over, I actually feel kinda sad saying goodbye to her guidance. It not only prepared me for this test, but made me a better clinician overall. I'm very grateful for Amanda and TDC!
I knew that I was going to need some additional support and mentoring in order to pass the MFT L&E exam. It had been at least since I graduated in the summer of 2013 when I really reviewed any MFT material. I was confident in my abilities as I graduated with a 4.0 and was in the top 10% of my graduating class on our final mock exam (a long hard road with having a daughter and being a family man). I reached out to one of my previous fellow co-workers who recommended TDC and their study system to me. It took me a good 2-3 months to go through the material thoroughly as my work was/is extremely demanding and we were about to welcome our third daughter to the family come January 2018. I had my deadline, and TDC made it possible after all those years to refresh me and make me feel as prepared as I could be to pass the MFT L&E exam on the first take (even after being unable to finish the exam with around 3-5 questions left). I was so beside myself and overjoyed when I saw the PASS on my results that I had to hug the test center rep. Thank you TDC! Now on to the clinical exam!
I tried to pass the Legal and Ethics by only using part of the Therapist Development MFT Legal and Ethics study packet, but learned the hard way that I missed so much and I failed my exam. I missed the positive and powerful suggests throughout the study packet and very important information. When I finally went through the entire study packet and used the tools I PASSED. I would recommend the Therapist Development Center to anyone and I know. Thank you!
I am just amazed at passing on the first try. I used other materials before TDC and once I purchased TDC I passed both exams first try!
When I first started searching for study materials for the exam, I was overwhelmed with options. I thought about doing it on my own but had no clue where to start. I looked at some other programs, but they did not seem comprehensive enough to me. I just needed a program that broke down what to study and made it simple. This program does just that. It takes the guesswork out of what you need to study and prepares you for the actual test with the timed mock exams. It is a perfect blend of lectures and handouts, which are great for all learners. Don't get me wrong, the exam is still difficult and I walked out not really knowing whether I passed or failed. TDC even mentions that for a moment it will feel like you don't know anything. However, your study skills kick in and remind you to break down the questions, eliminate answers and trust in the process. If you want a program that takes the guesswork out of what and how to study, this is the program for you.
TDC has helped me study for both exams: L&E and CCE. The topics discussed in all areas were talked in a way that is easy to understand. TDC breaks down each answer and gives great rationales. Amanda says that she (her voice) will be with you in the test room, and she really does. You can hear her voice when you read the exam questions and can imagine what she would say about each answer, and which would be best fitting for the vignette. TDC was very helpful in my success with both exams. So thankful for TDC! Side note: Before taking the CCE I had to extend my study center a few times because I’d change my exam date because “life happens”. TDC was accommodating to my extension. They are awesome!
I am so excited to be a LMFT and I can’t believe that I passed both of the exams the first time I took them. I have been out of school for a long time because getting my hours took awhile. The Clinical Exam was so hard and I could not go back over any questions because I only had two minutes left (with no breaks) when I finished. TDC helped me so much. When I was struggling with questions, I just kept thinking about what I would do with my own clients like Amanda suggested and that’s how I was able to answer the questions. Everything that Amanda taught me about how to think about the questions and approach the test was what helped me the most. I was so glad that I did not have to memorize a lot of information. I also appreciated the prompt assistance, support and encouragement the I received from Robin who is one of the coaches. It was so nice to have someone to connect with and get advice from. I have and will continue to share my positive experience with your program with my colleagues who need to take the exams. I am so glad that I can now use your program for my continuing education requirements. Thank you so much for making what seemed so impossible, possible.
I passed! I can not tell you how hard it was to wait for my exam results due to the LMFT Clinical Examination Analysis (began 12/1/17)! My mailbox became a looming PASS/FAIL coming soon. I got my results on 1/22/18, exactly 7 weeks to the day of my exam. Happy beyond words... surprised (my gut said I didn't pass)... relief at having finished... and tears of joy! It has been a very good week!! I went into this study period with a lot of resistance, but had to just get started. I can not tell you how much this program helped me! I would highly recommend your program!! Thank you so very much!!
This is an excellent program that fully prepared me for the Law & Ethics exam. It proved a thorough review of all the topics, and most importantly, a useful approach to test taking. I followed the program's suggestions for preparing for the test, and their tips for taking the test and analyzing the questions. This program was recommended to me, and I will definitely pass on the advice to others looking for a study program. There is no doubt that I will be back when I'm ready for the clinical exam.
I am so glad that I enrolled in the TDC program, because it prepared me really well for the California Law & Ethics exam. I couldn't have passed it without the many mock exams and final exams that TDC provided. I will be back for my licensing exam. Thanks again.
I really had myself worked up about the fact that I graduated from grad school ten years ago. I just knew that there were pieces of info I was missing. I was my own worse enemy! I listened to the lectures while cleaning, doing projects and driving, but I wish I had sat down and written notes about each lecture before listening to them while distracted. I think listening while doing dishes would be great for reviewing the second time around. Despite a decade passing between graduation and the exam, TDC filled in the blanks, refreshed me, and I honestly think Amanda taught me things that I don't remember learning. I genuinely think this program made me a better therapist in general, not just a better examinee. Thank you so much for your vision, Amanda, and everyone who has supported you in creating TDC.
I believe TDC is the program of choice. It focuses you only on what you need, doesn't waste your time with extraneous content, and it offers supportive, responsive coaching. TDC was the program that really, truly prepared me. Thank you, TDC!
