Social Work Exam Prep

Thank you for being so patient with me. Life never stops and you were always willing to extend the necessary time for me to feel ready for this exam.

Thank you so much TDC team! I took my exam for the second time on March 21st and I passed. I needed 103 and got 112 correct. When I took the exam the first time around in December 2017, I needed 97 and got 96 correct. The first time through I did not have a strict study pace; essentially I didn't follow your design. I brushed up on some areas the second go around and was able to calm my anxiety and push through the uncertainty. I loved every aspect of this program! Thank you to all the coaches! You were all truly helpful and a God send. Thank you, thank you, thank you. My job is contingent upon me earning my LCSW and now I am on my way to securing my credentials.

I passed on my first try and I know that I couldn't have done it without TDC!!!! THANK YOU!!!

Great program! Very helpful lectures on key topics. Handouts definitely helped me to organize and prioritize!

I am so appreciative of TDC! I have been working in the field with my Masters for about 5 years. I was so anxious to take the test knowing I had not been a student for so long. I was overwhelmed knowing where to start. I heard about TDC from a former classmate and gave it a try. It was worth the money! I appreciated how the program broke the information down into manageable steps. I gave myself about 5 weeks to study and kept to my study schedule. It was so helpful to have a plan to follow! Heidi was great getting back to me if I had questions. I am very grateful for such a well developed program! Thanks for all your help to pass this milestone!
 

This system is the best for a working social worker because of its ease of use and flexibility. I like that I did not have to continually sign in each time I wanted to study. That made it easy to use on my phone, tablet or work computer whenever I had spare time to study. The recorded lectures and lessons are great to listen to in your car and helped maximize study time for me. I found that many of the questions on the mock exams were very similar to the ones on the test, so I felt well prepared while taking it. Furthermore, I felt that the mock exams were more difficult than the actual test, so I pretty much sailed through the actual exam. A million thanks, TDC!

I went through all the TDC study materials multiple times and passed the LCSW Clinical exam on my first attempt. I am very happy with the effectiveness of the TDC method. Thanks for helping me successfully pass the exam!
 

I came out of graduate school with the intentions of taking my LCSW exam soon after. Due to life circumstances, that wasn’t a viable option for me, and there I found myself trying to study for the biggest exam of my life with an infant. I had so much anxiety about how I would have enough time to adequately study for this exam. TDC breaks down every topic so thoroughly, and I went into my test feeling the most confident. I also have found myself being more assertive in my practice due to the knowledge that I feel like I have learned from TDC. It truly gave me the confidence not only for my test, but for my day-to-day too. I couldn’t have been more happy with the program and the resources it offers. I’ve told all of my interns and coworkers about it and will continue to sing its praises! Thank you for helping me not only pass this test, but for helping me the best clinician possible.

I felt fully prepared for the exam thanks to this study program! A coach answered all of my last minute questions that came up while I was taking the mock exams. She responded to my emails almost immediately even on a Sunday! I am a horrible test taker but I passed with flying colors and felt confident on most of the questions. Just do exactly as Amanda says and you'll be good to go!

I've never purchased a test prep program before and was hesitant to do so. I'm glad I listened to my coworkers and bought this program. This program put everything in one place, helped me plan out and organize studying, and most importantly taught me how to approach questions and navigate the nuances. Not only did I pass on the first try but reviewing the study materials has sharpened my clinical practice as well. Thanks TDC for putting this together to help us get through this final hurdle. 

My first exam was taken "cold turkey"- no significant studying. I convinced myself to initially view the first try as a practice, which reduced the test anxiety associated with it. I didn't pass, but I was determined to pass it after obtaining some additional CE units. I made the two-hour trip to the Los Angeles hotel for the seminar, which was time-consuming and costly, but I assumed the in-person approach would give me a better chance of absorbing the material and passing. I was shocked that results of my second exam showed only a minor improvement from the first try. Now, the stakes were higher, and I had already lost money on obtaining units and exam costs. I then recalled what a colleague shared with me (when at the L.A. seminar), which was her plan to take this course in addition to the CE units. I remember liking the idea, but the cost scared me away at first. I later reconnected with her, and discovered she passed the exam on the first try. I finally purchased this course for myself, and passed the exam! I would have saved money in the long run if I had taken this course from the start.
 

Trust the TDC method! If it was not for TDC study plan and the coaches being by my side through everything I would not have passed! I'm so glad I paid for this study course because it was the best decision I ever made.

I just wanted to say thank you for the materials provided to us in this program. They were very helpful, and helped guide me throughout my exam. Thank you for the audios and rationales provided throughout the course. I used TDC for both my Law and Ethics exam, and my ASWB Clinical exam. I am happy to say that I passed both exams on the first try!

The TDC study program was instrumental in helping me understand how to think about the test, what it was testing and the purpose. The investment was well worth it. Thanks TDC!

I completed my MSW studies 10 years ago but put off the licensing exam. The TDC study course was very helpful organizing my study for the LICSW exam. The quizzes, quick studies, audio lectures are a wonderful aid. Taking mock exams were great prep the week before the exam. Thanks for the encouragement and support provided, I was able to pass on my first attempt.

I have always had text anxiety, but many friends reassured me that with TDC I would go into the test feeling confident and ready. I wasn’t sure how I was going to do even after taking the Final Mock exams because I felt my scores were too low not knowing what percentage was a PASS. However, the night before the test I listened to the final pep talk and also to the Let’s Talk Law and Ethics for a final time and something seemed to click! I had Amanda’s voice inside my head and I knew I was going to PASS. I woke up the morning of the test calm which has never happened in a testing day before. Of course there is always that little bit of doubt but I was so excited when a I saw the word PASS on my results page. Thank you TDC!

Thank you, TDC for helping me prepare and conquer the LCSW exam!!!  I am so relieved and excited to move forward with my professional career.
 

I didn’t pass my exam on the first try using TDC, and that was partly my fault as I didn’t study for as long as I should have. I really took the time to go through all the course material this time around and I emailed the coaches as much as I could to really understand the material. I will say that having the support of the coaches and having them email me back in a timely manner made all the difference this time around. They offered validation and didn’t make me feel like I was studying incorrectly but instead reframed the way I looked at questions and I really think that helped me pass my exam this morning. I am really grateful and excited to start on this new journey! Thank you so much TDC and especially Ms. Heidi Tobe for answering my questions and really helping me feel prepared.

TDC had me feeling so confident I literally walked through the hallway to get to my test punching the air. Amanda said to go in there and attack this test and that's how I approached it. Then I sat down, put my noise cancelling headphones on that make your head feel like it's in a vice grip, and FORGOT EVERYTHING. I forgot all the information I learned through the audio recordings I listened to in traffic. Forgot every quick study and quiz I took. Forgot all the mock and practice test answers I had memorized (some of you can't tell, but that's just me being funny). But it didn't matter that I suddenly couldn't remember anything. I followed their study plan and it became almost like muscle memory with my brain. All the awesome information they give you, it's floating around in your head somewhere. You just have to take a couple deep breaths and channel Amanda and Bethany into the test center with you. I literally heard Amanda a couple times say "that's a possibility, but is it the best answer?" If you follow this program you will still be nervous, but you will be confident. And you will succeed. I passed today and I just want to thank TDC because this journey started the day I began grad school. Also, they love their Veterans so they have a special place in my heart. Semper Fi :)

I had failed the exam two times before but this time I really made it a point to follow the structure of the guide word for word. I went to the library every Saturday for a month and focused on taking the quizzes and the final mock exams to get used to the process of taking the actual exam. I would review what I had failed on the quizzes and the mocks during that week. I made the "process of elimination" my "go to" technique whenever I was stuck on a question and it really helped me. I highly encourage people who have a difficult time to use the "process of elimination" technique and to take a break while taking the actual exam. I am really glad that I stuck to this program and I would recommend this program to anyone. Thank you for all your help.
