Social Work Reviews
Thank you for your numerous extensions. I loved your program because I was able to hear the audios in my car, home, and work! I have already purchased the clinical study guide.
Therapist Development Center is the REAL DEAL!!! Even with someone who has really bad test anxiety, they helped me pull through, narrow in on what the question is asking, and choose the right answer. I passed on the first try with a high score and I didn't use any other study system...which indicates to me that they know what they are doing and talking about. Thanks guys! You are awesome!
I just wanted to let you know that I received my results to the Law and Ethics Exam yesterday via email. I am over joyed and happy to say that I know that I could not do it without this fabulous program. I will be definitely returning when it is time to take the LCSW exam. Thank you for all you do!
I would just like to say thank you developing this website. I had taken this exam 3 times prior to using this website to help me study. Using these materials and ways worked best for me. Having some of the audio and the breakdowns of topics was amazing. I have also shared this website with fellow social workers getting ready to take their LCSW exams. THANK YOU!
Thank you TDC! Passed on the first try!
I scored an 82% on my first mock exam, a 79% on my second mock exam, and an 81% on the actual exam. I felt like the real test was actually easier than the mock exams, and that I was very well-prepared!
Words can not explain how happy I am! TDC helped me so much. I passed on the third try. My first time taking it I didn't have a study system and failed. The second time I purchased TDC but only studied it for two weeks prior to my exam. This third time I really took my time and studied with TDC. I stayed with one study system and I studied for 3 months following the schedule. English is not my first language so for this third time I had been approved ESL accomodations with a dictionary and two hours extended time which helped me tremendously. During the exam this time, I read each question word for word and brought Amanda into the testing center with me. I utilized tutoring and coaching from my coach Heidi. After my second fail I was devastated, I had no hope. But my coach Heidi helped me build my confidence and stick to my study plan. I can not thank TDC enough for your help! I am now officially a licensed graduate social worker.
This entire process of passing both exams for Licensing, were an emotional challenge of over coming fears and having to learn to put my needs first... thankfully for TDC it made the learning and studying a simple and given process for success. Passed both exams on my first attempt!!
I was skeptical about trying TDC due to being audio-based and I am a strong visual learner. However, I really appreciated the structured-ness of the program and timeline to help me manage my time studying. I liked the handouts. I took notes throughout the lectures. Everything seemed to flow. I am also an anxious test taker and I was worried seeing my practice exam scores increased but not by major percentage points, but the rationales were very good and kept my confidence up. I only studied for about 2.5 weeks (not typical of me) but somehow Amanda's voice stuck with me when I went in to take the exam. I followed the tips and I passed on the first try! Very happy with the results. Thank you TDC.
Going through this study guide as suggested helped me feel at ease studying and not overwhelmed. The quick guides are excellent tools to use and the exams are good to prepare you for test day.
I found that the TDC program adequately covered the potential exam material in a way that I felt well prepared for the exam on test day. I took the Clinical ASWB exam, and my online coach (Bethany) went above and beyond to help me prepare for the exam with addressing any question I had with prompt and knowledgable replies. Within my cohort, most of us have used TDC to PASS our exams the first time. They really do get you to the finish line.
I took every one of the recommendations made, the day of the test I repeated positive affirmations, reminded myself to place answers in order and deduce those that did not make sense. Throughout the exam I could hear Amanda's voice guiding me.
I went in to the exam feeling confident and ready thanks to TDC! I felt the TDC program accurately reflected the exam and prepared me for what was to come! I just passed my exam and feel so grateful for TDC!
My exam was this past Saturday 4/1/17 and I passed!!!! TDC helped me a great deal! I followed all the steps almost exactly including juice and fruit before the exam and a break half way through. I could not access my locker at break, nor was I allowed to keep any fruit or juice out anywhere so if people are impacted by this they should definitely get an MD note ahead of time. Thanks for everything!!
The first time I took the exam, I wasn't adequately prepared but that was because I'd focused on the audios only and failed to review all of the material provided. The second time around, I made sure I understood and studied all of the material provided and I had much better results. I passed! Overall, I believe this is a good program and is extremely helpful with preparing you for the exam.
Thank you so much. I passed my exam after using this program. I recommend this program to all my colleagues who are in the process of studying for the exam.
I passed this exam on my 1st attempt and I owe it to the study program Therapist Development Center! Thank you Amanda Rowan and Bethany! After much angst and procrastination, and a few extensions ;) I finally got up the nerve to sit this four hour exam. I took you with me into the exam and passed with flying colors! Thank you!
Thank you so much, TDC! I felt so prepared during this exam as a result of using this program. I feel so grateful!
It was a great way to study for both the ethics exam and the clinical exam. I am pregnant with my second child, work full time, and have a toddler. I had a very limited amount of time to study and the Therapist Development Center helped me make the most of my time. When I was taking the actual test, I almost had to remind myself that it wasn't just another mock test- that's how comfortable and prepared I felt. Thank you!!!!
