I love the pep talk at the end of the test prep. I felt as if I would never really be certain on many answers. The key to this test is stamina and time management. Reading the question carefully, which is stressed in the prep materials, is very important and the concept of ruling out wrong answers is definitely the way to work through the questions. I feel like the test prep spent the right amount of time on strategies to take the test as well as content knowledge. I don't think I would have felt as confident with any other test prep!
I am grateful for this program. I passed my first time through. It wasn't just for me, I did it for my family. I just finished an hour ago and I went in armed with knowledge. I was faced with much harder questions but somehow my knowledge from this allowed me to pass. I am a very nervous test taker and lost sleep. Robin helped me through some of my issues throughout the studying and was incredibly encouraging. Thank you. Now a well deserved break, a good trashy novel, some beach time with my kids and dogs, and then prep for the CV! Thank you!
I felt good and prepared for the exam!
The recordings were the best! The learning materials were easy to process and I loved the tips and mock exams!! Thank you so much!!!
The Therapist Development Center was very instrumental in my passing the Clinical MFT exam today!! The test was very difficult and some of the questions did not make sense, but Amanda and TDC provided the necessary tools to be able to think each question through and come up with the best answer. Thank you!!
I missed the first exam by 3 points and really needed guidance to help me focus. After using the TDC program, I passed by 14 points and increased my scores in all but one area. This program was vital to my success.
Your prep course is the best. I used it to pass the California Vignette Exam in 2012, and just used it again to pass the MFT National exam in 2017. Again, you provide EXACTLY what is needed to pass. The other prep courses I used in 2011 were overkill, and did not prepare me well enough. Amanda, yours is superb! Thanks again for your help.
This program really helped in establishing a mindset that is needed in order to be successful on this test. The quick study sheets were probably the most helpful and I focused most of my energy on reviewing the parts (theories) that I had had difficulties in while in school, or had taken during the beginning portion of my school career.
Thank you Amanda! Having to take this test came as a surprise to me, and I felt mentally unprepared to have to add studying to my already crammed schedule. With your guidance and tips on how to break down the studying, I managed it quite well and found the audio portion especially helpful to retain the information. Your voice was literally in my head all the time! I am positive I would have not passed this test without this program. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am extremely grateful for TDC! I felt as prepared as possible for the L&E exam. The practice/mock exams along with the rationales were invaluable; they were the best study tools and prepared me for what to expect as far as question structure and timing. The guidance on how to approach the test was exactly what I needed as well. So much of the test is anxiety-related and slowing myself down by using TDC helped a ton! Thank you for helping me to pass, I would recommend this course to all of my colleagues!
Excellent program! I passed my California Law and Ethics Exam on the first try. I will definitely be using TDC for the upcoming Clinical Exam.
I used TDC for both CA MFT exams (L&E and Clinical) and was very satisfied. Amanda's approach helped me to stay on track (I'm a notorious procrastinator when it comes to studying), the way she broke down the different topics made sense, and her rationales helped me understand how to break down questions in order to find the best answer. Amanda is right when she states that you'll feel like you're failing during the exams; however, I believe my anxiety was much more manageable thanks to the support that was provided through TDC. In case the price of this program is holding you back, just know that for me, being able to pass both exams on the first try was priceless!
I loved your study material and found it to fit my style of learning very well. I always did worse on your tests by comparison to the actual tests and passed both the Law and Ethics and the Clinical Exam using only your materials.
First, I would like to give my thanks and appreciation to those who have taken the time to develop this program. This program gives one the opportunity for success and the confidence to move forward as a clinician. The best advice I took away from the program was to take Amanda with me. I was then able to break down each question by listening to buzz words and phrases. Some of the questions I was able to answer before completing the read. The study material provided me with a great experience of learning many things I did not know.
I really didn't think that I would pass due to a history of poor test taking skills. This material not only prepared me for the test, but gave me confidence as my percentages increased with each practice exam. Thank you for developing this material. I passed the test this morning, first try!
I am immensely grateful for TDC's availability and the structure provided to study helped for me to address how to tackle the exam studying process. Thank you!
This was the only study material I used for both the Law and Ethics Exam and the Clinical Exam. Passed both on the first try! I definitely found the study material to be extremely helpful! It went over strategy as well as content. The only thing that might be different was the amount of reading comprehensions and vocabulary in the answer itself. I found the answers on the actual test to be far more confusing than the practice tests. The question stems were great! But otherwise, very helpful and thank you so much for helping me pass!
Amanda, you are awesome. Thank you for making this excruciating process fun. I say excruciating because I absolutely suck at standardize testing. I didn't do well on my SATs and various other standardize tests or exams I had to take over the years. Yet, through your program, I felt confident, relaxed and dare I say, excited, for the L&E exam. When I last took the L&E exam, I got a measly 29 correct out of a possible 75 questions. When I took your final exams (I & II), I got 55 correct out of a possible 75 questions each time. That's just incredible for me considering my history with these type of tests/exams. So, thank you for giving me the confidence I needed to finally take down this monster called the L&E Exam. Up next will be another beast called the clinical exam, and please believe, I will be coming back to you for assistance with that one as well. Once more, thank you for what you've done for me. I hope I get to meet you one day to offer my heartfelt thank you in person.
Thank you so much for the excellent exam prep. I previously did not passed the MFT national and I had my confidence shattered. As Amanda said in the last recording, when we are used to acing our exams, failing on license exams is very hard on the self-esteem. I bought 2 AATB's study guides, and 1 Gerry Grossman; what waste of money. I will buy the TDC clinical study prep for sure!
I used TDC to study for my exam 3 weeks before taking it. I felt well prepared and felt that the advice on how to take the test was very helpful. It helped alleviate some of my nerves and anxiety.
