TDC went above and beyond to prepare me for the MFT Law and Ethics exam! I not only enjoyed the program, but I believe it enriched my clinical skills tremendously. Sitting through the exam itself was arduous, but I used all of the techniques from TDC to stay calm and focused. My coach, Robin, was very responsive to any questions I had throughout the process. Her encouragement gave a personal touch that complimented the down-to-earth quality of the TDC program as a whole. I appreciate the work you all do at TDC. Looking forward to using your program for the MFT Clinical Exam soon!
OMG! I passed! The first time! I have to say this program for sure was the reason I passed! I am not a strong standardized, timed test taker and my anxiety was pretty high at the thought of even knowing how to prepare to study for this test. The Therapist Development approach really worked for me. It uncluttered my mind, helped me to know what to focus my attention on, and the tips and timeline were invaluable. I did exactly what the program said to do and it worked! I just received my results in the mail today and I wanted to leave my testimonial first, even before telling my family! I truly appreciate the thoughtful way this program was put together. As a non-traditional learner this is exactly what I needed! THANK YOU!
I thought Amanda did a great job of covering all of the material found on the test as well as preparing mentally with pep talks and tips for success. I really appreciated the number of practice tests offered and the thorough rationales with each. Amanda's voice is calming, confident which helps prepare along the way both educationally and mentally. Thank you, TDC!
TDC has taught me how to reason the answers and has made me think logically and experientially. I also received excellent help from staff with answers to my questions. I also received coaching on strategies that became very helpful, especially strategies relating to conceptualization and time management. Whenever I needed help I received timely and consistent support, and never felt ignored or left to wait. This is quite an amazing support system.
I listened to the lectures and took notes on the computer, I barely passed my first practice test, I failed my second one, became frustrated and reached out to Robin. I found the most helpful study technique for me was looking over the rationales for the questions that I missed, I then categorized them by Top 30 topic, then picked the most challenging topics for me, I listened to the lectures (taking note of the time stamp so I could return more easily next listen-through). I retook notes by hand over the prior notes that I had printed out. I found Robin's advice to take ownership of the blank table extremely helpful because I was able to reorganize the topics in multiple ways to improve my recall and depth of understanding. I felt really prepared walking in to test, but as I walked out of the test, I had a hard time letting go and feeling the same confidence. By the time the test score arrived, I was certain I failed, but I passed! So thank you for a great, thorough program!
I think if I would not have had this program to guide me through the study process, I would have been completely overwhelmed by the material and probably had an anxiety attack. The practice test questions are worded very much like the ones on the actual exam and give you a good idea on how questions will be presented. Listening to Amanda give the rationale to both right and wrong answers were really helpful in determining why if there were two 'good' answers, instead of a 'right' answer, why one was slightly better than the other.
It was a good program. The Top 30 topics were very helpful. Thank you!
