Social Work Reviews
I scored a 130 out of 150 scored questions (20 experimental) on Nov 1st. I didn't use any other materials, but I went through the guide once very attentively and another time more briefly. I felt ready (but nervous) before. During the test I could tell I was doing well, and now very relieved it's over! This course made preparation deliberate and easy.
I'm so thankful for this program helping me pass my LCSW. The quick studies, quizzes and mock exams (printed) were fabulous and easy to bring anywhere to increase study time. I listened to the audio while driving multiple times. Overall, the program is wonderful. Great tips of how to be successful! :-)
I am a person that has never tested well; I don't have confidence with it. I've been a social worker for 30 years and will always have this lack of confidence. This program was very inspiring, clear understanding, going over answers that were wrong and explaining the reason(s). Your prior testimonials were a big reason for me signing up for the class. I look forward to when the time comes to apply for the next study guide, the final exam, the LCSW.
I took my LCSW exam this morning and passed the first time around. I also used your Law and Ethics program for my first exam which I passed the first time around. I found your material so helpful. I work for child protective services and your material got me to think like a clinician. Your audio was so helpful for me to study while in the car. Thanks again for the assistance, and I will be recommending you to all my friends who will be taking their exams.
On October 14, 2017, I closed my eyes, pushed the finish button on the LCSW exam and when I opened my eyes it said, "Pass." I was overcome with emotions! I Thank God for giving Amanda and her staff the gift of teaching and coaching test takers like myself. I tend to overthink things, which is part of my type A /perfectionist personality lol. The program covered everything that was needed to pass the LCSW exam. TDC not only provides you with the factual knowledge to pass the test but also with relaxation methods and lots of encouragement! My coach Heidi was supportive and one of my biggest cheerleaders. I used the TDC program to also pass my Law and Ethics exam here in California. Of course, I passed the exam on my first try. I had no doubt that I would use the TDC for my LCSW exam. Before I close, I do want to say this. Please follow Amanda's directions and don't erase any answers unless you have an "aha" moment. Amanda knows what she is talking about when she gives you advice about not erasing answers! I highly recommend TDC if you want a program that will prepare you to become the next LCSW!
I finally passed the LCSW exam! This was my third attempt. I've been in the field for a long time and was getting frustrated that I couldn't pass. What I really appreciate about the TDC program is that it helped me understand HOW to answer the reasoning questions. That was a problem for me before. I used other study materials and could not pass. Thank you TDC!!! I can finally add that "C" to my credentials. I highly recommend this program. It is well worth it.
I loved using the Therapist Development Center for my ASWB LCSW exam. I took and passed my exam last week and I don't think I could have been more prepared. Amanda came into the test with me and kept me on my A-game, reminding me about certain testing strategies and topics that we went over in the lectures. If I ever had to test again my first stop would be TDC. I have been referring my friends and colleagues working toward their LCSW to also use this straightforward and comprehensive program to have their own success story. Thank you TDC. It made it very simple for me to breathe easy during this process.
I reviewed the steps in the program with as much detail as I could. I felt prepared going in as to what the exam was and how to pass it. Ultimately I did pass the exam on my first try. I scored 22 questions more than what was needed to pass.
On 10/30/2017 I passed my LMSW exam! At no time did I ever doubt this program. Quite frankly, I knew from the start that this would work for me. Having the print, audio and practice exams is as thorough as it can get! I owe a huge thank you to Amanda for this program and look forward to using this same program for my LCSW exam. I will recommend this program to anyone needing to take the social work exam.
TDC study materials and lectures are so insightful, easy to study, and has most of the topics you need for the exam. They include everything that is very crucial for the exam; there is nothing you will throw away as all is necessary. I really enjoyed my time with TDC. It allowed me to hear the lectures while I drive to and from work; wherever I went, I had access to the audio lecture, which was so helpful. I definitely will come back for my LCSW exam in two years once I have my supervision hours. Thank you so much TDC.
I was very nervous about passing the LMSW exam, but luckily I was recommended to use this study program. I knew since the start of the program that it would make the difference for me. I loved the structure of it and was able to break down my studying over two months. By the end of my studying, I had gained confidence in myself that allowed me to do well on the day of the exam. I would strongly suggest repeating the program, if time allows, as doing so helped me gain confidence as well as enhanced my knowledge. I was able to pass the LMSW exam with over 20 points necessary. I will recommend this program to friends and colleagues and will definitely use this program once I am ready to take the LCSW exam. Thank you, TDC!
TDC is an amazing program! I would encourage anyone who needs help passing the national licensing exam to use the TDC study program. TDC changed my study habits and increased my confidence. The materials along with online tutorials were very user friendly and comprehensive with the information needed to pass the exam. Thank you very much TDC for all of your help!!!
Therapist Development Center was integral in helping me to pass both the Law & Ethics and Clinical LCSW exams. The material was presented in a way that was so user-friendly, organized and thorough. Going into the test, I felt super prepared and confident thanks to TDC. I would recommend the program to anyone taking the tests to prepare for licensure.
I was extremely concerned about taking the LCSW exam last Wednesday. I had taken this test many times and really struggled. Bethany was so helpful. No matter how defeated I felt, Bethany was always encouraging! She was always available and willing to help me look at the exam from every angle. This time taking the test was different for me. My Aunt passed away the night before I took the exam. I was thinking there is absolutely NO WAY I will pass tomorrow despite how much I had tried to study or how confident I felt about the material. My head and heart was in Georgia with my family and that was where I wanted to be. I knew though I had to see the process and test through. When the "noise of heavy breathing" finally became faint in my head, my heart rate slowed down and I could think. I could hear Bethany in my head saying "Penny, you can do this"...and my Aunt cheering me on telling me despite all that was happening I could pass. Guess what? I PASSED! I am so thankful for the materials and the program. I am so thankful for my spiritual support system! TDC, this LCSW license is OUR license!
I finally passed my LCSW test today thanks to this program! I would highly recommend this program to anyone studying to take this test. I felt confident going in today and felt I studied as much as I needed to in order to pass.
Excellent studying program. I passed the exam first try! But then again I studied a lot.
I struggle with severe test anxiety and have stressed about this exam for months. The information and layout of TDC really helped me break everything down and feel confident in what I've learned. I took my time on the exam and listened for Amanda's voice telling me what "she would do." It worked and I'm forever grateful for this program!!
Therapist Development Center helped me feel less overwhelmed by the vast areas of content covered in the ASWB Clinical Exam. Thanks to TDC, I was able to break down content areas, find my strengths and weaknesses, and feel that test prep was manageable! The mock exams in TDC are incredibly valuable and helped me to prepare for the duration of the exam. Most importantly, the program helped me deal with my own anxiety related to the exam. Thanks TDC for helping me pass!
I am SUPER grateful for all of the organization and thought put into the TDC Clinical Exam prep. For me the best parts were all of the quizzes and practice tests as they taught me how to answer the questions using reasoning and understanding exactly what was being asked. Literally the first question on the exam was one that I didn't outright know, but because of all of the tips and strategies, I was able to deduce the best answer from the choices! Thank you Amanda, Bethany and the TDC team!!!!
Thank you TDC for an easy to understand breakdown of the ASWB licensing material. I followed your method and I was able to pass my test comfortably. Your relaxation methods and strategies to tackle the test helped me stay focused and alert!
