Social Work Reviews
I was terrified to take this exam. I am older student and have dyslexia. These materials were excellent with the auditory sections and Amanda's explanations really helped me to think through each question. Now that the jitters are over, I would like to up my score. But I am thrilled I passed the first time!! Thank you so much for making this program and your support.
This program was great! I used the given study guide for the CA Law and Ethics Exam for 6 weeks! I was able to breeze through the questions on the exam! I am so grateful for the team at TDC. Any questions I had were responded to right away with great explanation! I will continue now with the study prep for the actual LCSW exam now! THANK YOU TDC!
If you follow this program step-by-step and take each practice test 3 times you'll do just fine. I found it helpful to listen to the explanation section while I drove in my car.
I am very relieved and excited that I passed the LCSW exam on my first try. I wouldn’t have been able to without this program. Thank you!!!!!!
I am so glad I used Therapist Development Center. It gave me tools that I used, over and over again to overcome my weaknesses and feel stronger and less afraid. I still had a ton of fear, but I kept coming back. I also had a ton of other problems in my life that were slowing me down. But the study center helped by extending the class so I could focus on my life problems. Once my life was in check, a friend challenged my fear, told me to not wait and to just take the test because I have put in the studying. I could always take it again. I decided to take the test and just have courage that maybe I would actually pass. I setup the test and rescheduled two times. But when I finally took the test, I realized almost immediately that I had way more skills this time, and knew a ton more. I was way more confident and finished the test in less time. I took a break in the middle when I had mental fatigue, jumped back in and attacked the test again. The voice of the instructor jumped in my head a few times and that also helped. Thank you TDC for helping me pass this test.
TDC helped prepare me for the test with quality material, and also familiarizing me with the format and how the questions were worded. The practice tests help me pace myself and prepare me for the amount of information so that I was not overwhelmed.
TDC's study materials offered through this program are excellent and easy to follow. I passed both my “Law and Ethics” and “ASWB” exams on the first attempt utilizing Therapist Development Center’s study system. It is well worth the investment. Take your test one time and get it done!
When I got the approval to take the exam I didn't know where to start. I knew that all of my friends and co-workers had passed their tests on the first attempt, so I asked what program they used. I really liked the way that the program is structured and that it's not too overwhelming with information. The best part, I think that this program prepared me mentally to take the exam. I went into the test feeling confident, which is great because the test can definitely make you question your thinking.
I want to thank everyone from TDC, especially Bethany and Heidi for their ongoing support through my clinical examination process. I'm forever grateful for this program, the TDC family, and highly recommend it for future MSWs and MFTs. :)
I went to a two day course offered by a LCSW and I didn't feel confident in what I learned, so I studied as much as I could, but became overwhelmed with how to study, what to study, and what strategies I could use for wrong answers. I didn't pass the first time. I heard about TDC from a co-worker (who hasn't tried it herself yet ironically) and thought I would give it a try. The step by step guide made it easy. I had to change my test date due to a family issue and needed an extension and they didn't give me any trouble about it. I had an AMAZING coach. HEIDI, you really helped me with those pesky first/next, best techniques and I know that's what made a difference this time. Having a structured and detailed outline of what to study, then having rationales, and a coach at your side definitely gave me the confidence I needed to succeed and I am so glad and grateful that I used TDC. Thank you for all your help TDC! And HEIDI, thank you for your skill, patience, and positive encouragement. It meant more than you know!
Passed on my first attempt. Woot woot! The tutorials through TDC that focus on the wording of test questions were invaluable. The program has much more to offer than memorization of facts. It helped me think about how to approach the test in a way that I might not have found elsewhere.
I used the TDC study material for my exams because it was user friendly and the material was not overwhelming. I found that their quick studies were very useful especially when I would be too exhausted from work to listen to a full lecture and take notes. Having the team at TDC helped me overcome my failures and guided me through my accomplishments. I'm thankful for having found the TDC program and look forward to completing my CEU's in the future with them.
I don't know if I would have passed without the Therapist Development Center! I will definitely be using it for the LCSW exam if I choose to do so. Thank you!!
This product not only makes you feel knowledgeable but confident in your abilities. The material is concise and does not confuse a future test taker. Remember, it is not what you know but HOW to answer the question in the way the questions are presented. My coach Bethany was a major support and always responded to my questions in a fair manner. I implemented her tips when taking the two practice exams... highly recommended because they were very similar to when I took the exam. Additionally, the audio recordings were without a doubt a great resource. I was totally sold when in the description, they said "stay with you UNTIL you pass." Invest in your future career and have these excellent coaches by your side.
The program really helped me feel confident when taking the test. I took it before and failed and needed something with great materials and this program had it all. I am really satisfied with my purchase and happy that I passed my test on my second try, especially when I have extreme test anxiety!
A great big thank you to TDC for constructing a concise, comprehensive and user friendly program. In using the program I felt less overwhelmed and grew confidence in my level of preparation for the clinical exam. A big thank you!!
I had previously taken the exam and failed. I was very nervous about taking the exam again but the break down of TDC, the audio, and online coaches had me very prepared to take the exam. I would recommend this to anyone. Money well spent and I will be coming back to complete the next exam for my licensing.
Thanks so much, TDC! I really would not have been able to pass without the support of this program. The lectures, quick studies, practice exam and Heidi's quick response time to questions I had really made this process so much less painful than it could have been. Thanks to TDC, I am an LCSW!!!!!!!!!
TDC is great! I knew I was prepared and I felt confident prior to completing the final mock exams. The final pep talk was great. I listened to it 5 minutes before walking into the test center and it gave me a confidence boost! Thank you so much TDC!
I just passed my clinical exam on my 1st try! This program was a great tool in my study toolbox. Actually, it was pretty much the only tool in my toolbox. It really did cover everything I was confronted with on the test, and even beyond that. I absolutely crushed every DSM question thanks to this program. Additionally, this program really prepared me for the types of questions I could expect from the exam. I knew going into it that each question would have multiple "right" answers, and I felt like I knew how to select the ultimate "right" answer. Having the detailed audios were great to listen to 3 or 4 times in my preparation, especially the ethics portion. Definitely a lot of ethics questions and I am confident I got most of them right.
