Good afternoon! I wanted to send a huge thank you for the study materials for the NCMHCE. After several months of studying. I was able to pass the exam with flying colors and it would not have been possible without the Counseling Exam website! I am excited about the opportunities passing this exam will open for my therapy career. Thank you again for putting together this amazing resource and I will make sure to pass the website along to every colleague studying for the NCMHCE!

I want to thank you for providing excellent study materials. I took the NCMHCE yesterday for the first time and I passed! I used counselingexam.com exclusively, with the exception of the DSM, to prepare for the exam and it was all I needed! I was comfortable with the format of the exam because I was so familiar with it. Thank you!

Crushed the exam! Passed with 80% and 85% on my second try. 11 months ago I failed with 73% on both sections - so glad I got a subscription to CounselingExam.com! I am recommending this program to my co-workers who are stepping up from LMHCA to LMHC soon. Thanks so much for the help!

Dr. Linton. I want to thank you and "Licensure Exams" for all your help and guidance. I passed the exam this past Saturday, 3/18/17 by a large margin. I felt confident taking the test and applied what your materials taught me. I found it especially helpful to a deep breath and "shake it out" after each question. This relaxation really worked and I am sure I gained points from it. I found that reading the materials in the guide and then working the case studies to be most advantageous. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all

Hello! My name is Sarah. I used your site for 90 days all the way up until this morning. I took the NCMHCE exam today and I PASSED!!!!! Not just passed I did pretty well! I'm amazed and SO incredibly grateful for your excellent site and resources. It truly made all the difference. I felt so prepared and I WAS so prepared. I can't thank you enough. I remember doing my research on what study tools to use months ago and I can't even tell you how glad I am that I chose yours! Cheers! Sarah

I just wanted to let you know that I passed today! I had purchased and studied from three other workshops/books and I was not feeling prepared enough for my exam today. So I talked to a friend about what she used to study and she recommended your site because of the online quizzes. I bought a week long (even though my exam was in three days) so I could make full use of the site. And I did, I spent those last three full days taking the practice sims and the 3 full length exams. After passing all three of the full length exams on your site I finally felt prepared. I still had a lot of anxiety going in, but I passed and I definitely feel I wouldn't have, had I not purchased your site materials and practice simulations. Nothing helped me be more prepared than your practice simulations, thank you!

Dear Dr. Hutchinson, I just wanted to let you know that I passed the NCMHE my first time around and what your website offers was instrumental in that happening. There is such a wealth of information available and it is right on target. I purchased another study program first because it was cheaper but it was another case of "you get what you pay for". Thank you so much for doing what you do, not only to help people pass, but to make us more skilled with what we're doing through practicing and reviewing extensive information. It truly was in there! Sincerely grateful, Sherry

I just passed the NCMHCE this week after studying for 3 months and the content on your site was instrumental in that outcome. The simulations were particularly helpful as a means of learning both test content and test taking strategies. Throughout the exam my mantra was "breathe in, breathe out...read the question and all the answers before making selections". It helped with pacing and keeping anxiety at a manageable level.Though I had started my test preparations using print resources, your site kept the study process from becoming tedious over time. Thanks!

I simply wanted to say "Thank you." I passed! It's one thing to know the DSM-5; it's another to get the test. This site and the simulations were very helpful to achieving this goal. Again, thank you.

I loved the site! The practice exams for me were the most beneficial as it prepared me for the exam and there were no surprises on test day. It helped me to know where I needed to study the most and it familiarized me with the exam and how to carefully select the questions and read each question carefully. I loved all the study and exam tips included on the site, when test day came and anxiety was high, I was able to use the strategies I learned when I when in to take the test and it helped me relax. It was money well spent and I passed the exam the first time!

So, I crushed the NCMHCE today. :-) Your website was super helpful in my exam prep (in fact, it was my ONLY exam prep) and I finished the exam in 1 hour and 15 min because the questions seemed straightforward and simple after doing the case studies on your website. I have recommended your site to everyone yet to take the test! Thank you so much.

Hello Dr. Hutchinson, I just had to say "thank you" for assisting me in passing the NCMHCE. I used your site for 2 months and it paid off. I also enjoyed the inspirational emails that propelled me to study even when I wanted to give up. I just passed today and had to let you know that your site was a tremendous help. Keep helping others! Best Wishes, Christine

Good Morning- Just wanted to say I passed my exam yesterday! It was the first time taking the NCMHCE and I passed! I loved your site and don't regret buying the subscription. The practice simulations were the most helpful and it prepared me for the format and content of the exam. I was so nervous but was able to calm down and SLOW down enough to pass :) Just wanted to say thanks! Pamela

I know counselingexam.com was the KEY component to my success. You may be a rock star with the DSM-5 or the best clinician since Jung and Rogers, but unless you know how to put together the information as required in this exam, you may not pass it. The meticulous care the Licensure Exams Crew took in covering every aspect of this test made it possible for me to pass it the first time and get on with my life. From exam tips, content questions, simulations, reviews, and stress management techniques, there is no better way to prepare yourself for this challenge. If you can invest in one tool to ensure success, this is it.

Dear Dr. Linton, First of all, I PASSED!! Thank you so very much for creating this helpful, logical, and multi-pronged approach to studying for the NCMHCE exam. Initially, I had purchased another program and was really struggling. One week before I was scheduled for my exam, I signed up for a 7-day subscription with counselingexam.com and dove right in. From the beginning (the "start here" section), I was able to make sense of the test, learn the counseling information, and take in valuable test taking strategies. Thank you, thank you thank you! The most helpful sections for me were the "start here" videos, all the simulations - the full-length simulations in particular allowed me to manage my anxiety by experiencing an approximation of the real thing, the DSM case study questions, and the flash cards for the DSM diagnoses, rule-outs, and differential diagnoses.

I wanted to let you know that I passed the NCMHCE last week! I utilized every bit of advice from you and I am so glad that the result was successful! I wrote a comment on your site and will gladly pass it on to my colleagues who are in the preparation stage to subscribe to your website. Thank you!! Amy

I just wanted to thank you for your website. I had signed up with another NCMHCE study website and was very frustrated. I wasn't improving on the case studies, and nothing seemed to make sense. A friend who was studying with me found your website and said it made so much more sense. I learned more on your "Start Here" section than I did in several weeks of studying with the other program. You guys are the best! I took the NCMHCE yesterday and passed a great score. This was the second time I took the exam and I was a huge mess of anxiety. Your study guides, case presentations, and daily emails helped me so much. Hopefully, others can find you first and not waste money like I did. This is the only website they need to pass their counseling exams! Thanks!

“BIG time saver, the diagnostic exams offered on your site allow me to determine which subjects, individual topics or theorist I need to focus my review on. In my opinion the wide variety of materials you offer meet all learning styles, the e-mail inspirations arriving daily are most valuable, I thank you.” K. Schellinger

Good day! I used your NCMHCE prep and passed my test on the first go! I was so thrilled! Your DSM flashcard tips, test-taking strategies, suggestions about choosing answers and the layout of the simulations was exact. Had I not used your site, I would not have adjusted to Pearson Vue's expectations. Thank you so very much! My license should be coming shortly! I have already referred two colleagues to this site. All the best and thanks for keeping your site up to standards with the NCMHCE.

I took my NCMHCE exam this week and passed the first time thanks to Dr. Hutchinson! I found the simulations and full-length practice exams the most helpful. The simulations at the site are very similar to the ones on the actual exam. I personally found it helpful to revisit simulations in areas that I did not learn enough about in grad school, in my case, children and families. I used the pdf study book as well, especially the assessment section. The DSM 5 flash cards were very helpful, too. It was especially helpful to refresh my memory about the duration from when symptoms started for various diagnoses as this was important to know for the exam. I highly recommend this site!

Hey Linton, I took the NCMHCE this morning and upon completion of the test received a printout that I have passed the exam. I am assuming that it is not official but it does indicate PASS with my scores and passing scores listed on the printout. Yay. I will hopefully receive an email as well. But mostly, I wanted to thank you for putting such effective practice tests on your webpage. It was extremely helpful as were the flashcards and videos.

I passed my NCMHCE yesterday, on the first try and with good score. I wanted to thank you for all your help. I recommended this site to many people in person and via FB study group. I am not a native English speaker and have a mild case of ADHD. For someone like me, the way you organized present such a vast material has been an absolute lifesaver. I loved the humorous tone of the feedback and how interesting and fun the studying process was. All this helped me to "normalize" the process and decrease the anxiety I had on the onset. Thank you again!

Linton & Staff: I took the NCMHCE on 7/23/16 and I passed with flying colors!!! Needless to say I had to take it more than once, but this time, I was ready. On my previous attempt, I missed passing by one point. The practice simulations and the handbook will prepare anyone for success in passing this difficult test. Thank you for the daily inspirational messages which kept me going when I wanted to quit. Blessings to you and your team for all you do to help prepare so many of us to help so many others. It really was in Rhone!! Regards, Janie

Hello Dr. Hutchinson.... Just wanted to let you know that I don't need emails sent to me anymore. I passed the exam yesterday!

Thank you for the incredible job you do with your review and exam preparation material. I bought the one week subscription and went through what felt like endless simulations. I also completed two 3-hour exam simulations and felt incredibly well prepared and ready by the end of the second one! I also used some of your glad cards and read your daily samplers and loved the cliff notes review of a different topic each day - great refresher! I will definitely share this service with others as I believe it is worth every penny. Thank you and keep doing what you do. Eleanor

Hi, I never provide online feedback, but your test prep program helped me prepare so well that I thought I was still on the sample questions until the third simulation, because I thought it was too easy to be real. I finished the test in less than an hour with scores well above the passing score in both areas. Best use of my money. While preparing, I also gained insight learned more about available assessments and therapies. Thank you Danna

Dear Dr. Hutchinson. I just took and passed the national counselors exam yesterday and wanted to thank you for the terrific product you have put together. I felt very well prepared (although still pretty anxious) and your on-line test prep site was a huge part of that. I'll be wrapping up my supervised work in September and, since the test is passed, should be ready for licensing in New Hampshire at that time. I don't know if you hear a lot from people that use your service so at least you heard from me: Thanks! Blessings, Greg

I cannot thank you enough, and will highly recommend your resources to others!! Extremely grateful, Sharon

Hi, I am very happy to inform you that I passed the exam with "flying colors" (information gathering I scored 136 out of 150 and 120 out of 149 for decision making)...how you like that for results? Your materials are more than enough to prepare one for the exam and what I really appreciate about your program is your daily inspirations and "must know" info. As a matter of getting the word out, my director sent out emails to my colleagues about my passing and immediately one of them asked me to pass along your web site and of course I just sent it to him. Again, thank you for the added days and may God bless you! Johnny

Dear Dr Rosenthal and Dr. Hutchinson, I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for your hard work in providing exceptional and interactive study material for students preparing for licensure exams. Initially, I began preparing for the NCE, purchased Dr. Rosenthal's Vital Information CD's 15th Edition, but was then notified a year later by my program that we (the student body), should (not required), take the NCMHCE. Well, you can only imagine my surprise, frustration and increased anxiety. The great thing is, my son has a friend who took his exam a year before me. I asked him which exam he took, it was the NCMHCE and he had the books that would help me prepare for the exam and gave them to me, along with, Dr. Hutchinson's website. Of which I purchased for 30 days. All of this to say I PASSED! I PASSED! the NCMHCE first time out the gate. Both programs helped me tremendously. Yes, of course, Dr. Hutchinson's was the most interactive and appropriate for NCMHCE exam, however, Dr. Rosenthal, your information helped as well. Commuting to and from class, which was a total of 3 hours, I would listen to the cd's. I have listened to all of them at least three times. The relaxation cd, (I did not listen to while driving, lol), was amazing. By the way, I will be using the technique with clients. I will either give the cd's to a friend or, donate them to the school I am graduating from. Which, by the way, is Columbia International University, in Columbia South Carolina. Dr. Hutchinson, I am giving the books to a colleague and the website as well. He will be taking his exam in October. Furthermore, one of my internship supervisors will be taking her Social Work exam and I will be sharing your website with her. Hands down, both study guides and material were fantastic and I am glad I purchased and made great use of them. Again, thank you. Carla

I just wanted to thank you for the comprehensive study materials available here at counselingexam.com!! I took (and passed!!) my exam for the first time this afternoon. I finished in under 2 hours and passed by 50 points :) I found that I was very comfortable with the material and layout on the actual exam after having regularly practiced the simulations available on your site. Once I got through the first two simulations, it just felt like I was taking my practice exams at home. I was able to relax and really concentrate on the material in front of me. Thank you again SO MUCH for the vast amount of information available for study--this website was definitely key to my success today!

Hello Dr. Hutchinson, I think the website is awesome! I make a copy of "Gotta Know" and print it out every night so I can have something tangible to read, highlight and make other marks...especially with the diagnoses. The information on theories are great also. I have not been passing the exams, but I don't get upset about it. I am learning the structure of the exam as well as the expectations. I graduate in December and I believe I will be ready by this time next year, especially if I still have access to this website. Thank you so much for keep me inspired.

This site was wonderful and I don't think I could have passed had I not used it. I don't know who to thank for designing this, but it is a wonderful study tool. And when I contacted the site about needing more time and about a reduced rate, I was first amazed that I got a response and second that Dr. Linton ( or whoever answered) was so accommodating. Thank you very much and I will be telling my friends and coworkers about this site and they have to use it!

Hi, I didn’t get to thank you for the quality of the review course. Even though I was trained as a psychoanalyst, and many of the concepts on the test were new to me, I passed easily after studying your materials, and especially doing the simulations.

Dr. Hutchinson, I passed my NCMHCE by 75 points!!!! Thank you so much for developing such a quality test preparation website. I was working with another company's simulations and was failing them. Once I signed up for your website in November, I finally felt like I had an in-depth understanding of what the exam was all about. There were no surprises on the exam and some of the questions were identical to the questions on your simulations. Thanks to your simulations, I felt fully prepared and didn't experience the usual pre-test anxiety or jitters! I will definitely recommend your website to my colleagues and friends because honestly, I couldn't have done it without all the practice I got by doing the hundreds of simulations. Thank you again and please feel free to use this email as my testimonial. Dr. Nagma

"Dr. Hutchinson's online test simulation questions and study tools are a MUST for studying for NCMHCE! The test simulation questions are very similar to the test and really equipped me to know what to expect on the exam. The simulation questions also helped me know what I knew well and what I needed to spend more time studying. For those items that I needed to study more, the website has many tools and options on how to learn the information. It was worth it to purchase unlimited access to all the questions because it allowed me to practice different questions over a long period of time prior to the test. This online study aid was worth every penny and more!" --Kristene

I just wanted to share my appreciation and gratitude for this website. I have heard this was the best way to study for the NCMHCE from multiple friends and after taking my exam this previous Saturday I agree! I feel that this website had prepared me the best for the exam. I passed it, in fact, I knocked it out of the park. I will spread the word of this website to all colleagues and fellow counselor friends. Thanks again!

Everything was right on point with the test, and I don't think I'd have made it without your materials. Once again, thank you so very much for hosting an awesome study program. Your dedication to the counseling profession is tremendous. Best regards, Christy

I subscribed to your site both times and want to thank you for all of your help!! So glad that's over with! It's funny to say that I actually kind of miss logging onto the site because I felt like it kept me fresh and up to date with the latest everything.

After being in the field for 15 yrs, I moved back to my hometown in NY to assist my mother who is aging gracefully. After uprooting and moving, I found that I was out of compliance with my employer in that I needed to have a local license although my employer is based out of another state. I was told that I needed to pass the NCMHCE in order to work in the state and keep my position. This site has helped me on multiple levels; socially, emotionally, and most of all a successful outcome of passing on the first time! The simulations and resources made all the difference in passing or failing. In fact, I felt I was over prepared and managed to complete the exam in record time. And, just to think 6 weeks ago, I was thinking 3 hours would not be feasible. Thank you Dr. Huchinson for your great resources and inspiration!

I found your exam prep website through Dr. Priscilla Hutchins at Springfield College in St. Johnsbury, VT, and it has been an outstanding help. Yesterday I took the National LCMHC exam in Albany. They allowed 3.5 hours for the test, and I finished it in two hours and PASSED !!! This was my first time taking it, and I am so relieved to have it over with! Thank you ever so much for your great prep service and all the supportive emails along the way.

I just passed my NCMHCE exam today!!!!! Thank you...thank you.....thank you, I am one of those unique creators who has adult ADHD, inattentive type, and throughout my life my experience in the classroom has been an uphill battle. I had taken the exam 2 times before just missing by a few points (IG or DM). So prior to my third attempt I began to look for more/significant help and that was when I found your website/resource. It made all the difference for me. From the practice exams to the almost unlimited data I used the heck out of your website. Your information helped me refine and refocus my study efforts. And the actual test taking tips were also extremely helpful. I would recommend your resource to other whole-heartedly to anyone else. I also approached the exam organization and received an accommodation (time extension and separate exam room) for my ADHD issues. So if you have other individuals with challenges like mine, I thought I would pass that information on to you, to forward to them. It also helped me tremendous. You just have to asked and have your doctor send a letter. OK...so once again thank you thank you. Sincerely Paul

I passed the NCMHCE today!!!! I thank God and thank you for the excellent prep you provide. I passed the NCE using your materials, and then ordered NCMHCE materials. I had much less time to devote to this second exam, and I have not truly practiced in a clinical diagnosing situation. This said, I paid attention to the report you gave of the importance of a strategy. I used your tips and did very, very well. I was really so happy because I had less hours of study under my belt going into this exam than I did for the NCE. Anyway, your materials are solid gold, and I recommend them to anyone who wants to pass the NCMHCE. There is no way I would have passed without them. I used both the study guide and online materials. I also got one (1) set of CD's, however, I only listened to one due to time constraints. Toward the end of my days of study I completed some scenarios, opened the "gotta know" emails and from time to time opened the "inspiration" emails. They really make a difference because they address the feelings of "I am too far behind", "this is too overwhelming in terms of amount of information", "I don't know where to start or to pick up again", and "I should have studied more by now." Your inspiration was just what I needed to move forward. Thank you again for all you provide. Have a blessed Christmas! Carolyn

Dear Linton, I want you to know what a wonderful tool your site is. Yesterday I took the NCMHCE for the first time and I passed with a relatively comfort margin above the minimum required solely thanks to the practice exams and the study tool that your site provides. I found especially useful to start with the individual simulations in order to find out my weaknesses. Then I kept reviewing the material on which I was shakier and then to the simulations again. The real life scenarios gave my brain a hook of sorts on which to hang the theoretical knowledge. I also found extremely useful to take a practice exam a day (real exam conditions). I noticed that the margin of points above the minimum required kept increasing steadily. I did this religiously for a month and a half. On the day of the exam the training took over in spite of the tension and I found myself reacting to the scenarios as I had trained myself to do with your practice exam. I just reacted appropriately instead of panicking, a little bit like military conditioning. I highly recommend this tool to anybody who is planning to take the exam. If at all possible, I would suggest that candidates take at least the 3 months option to build up to the more intensive training to virtually guarantee success. From the bottom of my heart: thank you!

I JUST PASSED THE NCMHCE I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be. I think it's because I really utilized the counselingexam.com website. I purchased a 3 month subscription, looking over the information every so often. I really cracked down on studying about 3-4 weeks out. The practice exams were so helpful. They were really a good indication of how the real exam is set up, along with the questions asked.

I took the test at Pearsonvue location in Vienna, Virginia. I was not allowed to bring anything into the testing room, including my watch. I had a bad cough and was allowed to bring unwrapped cough drops folded in a tissue they gave me into the room. Instead of 2 sheets of scrap paper I was given one readable board and pen. I used one for each simulation. This meant that I had to raise my hand after each simulation and exchange my used board for a new one. This happened 10 times. I used the board exchange times as my break to stand and stretch. I bought your book, the website for one month, and the N B C C review materials. First read your entire book, did the simulations in it, and then began the website probably worked about three hours a day. The N B C C materials came with a magic pen which helped to see how it worked with a paper and pencil test. I did all of the simulations on your website, some more than once. Also used questions of the day everyday, as a pre- study review. It took me awhile to decide what review materials to purchase. I believe I made good decisions about my purchases because I used everything everyday. Thanks again for your website and support. Janis

Once I started to study for the LMHCA, my anxiety was extremely high. When I looked at the DSM-5, I was extremely intimidated, just the thought of what I needed to learn scarred me. I had no idea where to start, knowing there was no way of memorizing all of the mental health disorders. Then I purchased Dr. Hutchinson's study material, and it gave me the outline I needed to structure my study time and what to focus upon. As a result, I passed the exam. I highly recommend this study material. George

You're website is phenomenal and the simulations were very accurate. Also, the breaking news and flashcards were so helpful. I can't thank you enough. It was very stressful after the first test, but your motivation and guidance helped prevent me from giving up.

Thank you Dr. Linton for developing your CounselingExam.com website in a way that closely simulates the comprehensiveness and clinical skill level that the actual NCMHCE test requires. I believe many students, like myself, can pass the exam solely based on utilizing the study materials and simulations in CounselingExam.com. In comparison, last year I began studying from a different exam preparation site and missed the passing score by one point in the Decision Making category. Once I switched to the Dr. Linton/exam website, I accelerated my learning and comprehension of the NCMHCE within 3 months and scored a 84% on both the Information Gathering and Decision Making sections. Thanks again...I recommend this site to all the counseling licensure candidates.

Hello - Just ordered a week's worth of study material (testing, information, education, etc.) from your site. Just wanted to let you quickly know how much I have thoroughly enjoyed the uplifting messages provided each time a test answer is correct. I failed my first attempt at clinical licensure for one simple reason - cramming at the last minute. This time I have studied for 3 months solid. However, I have never used any study material, until now, that had those positive notes attached to them. They have made me smile each time I saw them. Although I doubt they will improve my score (but I could be wrong), they have provided some much needed joy in the midst of a very important, life changing task. Thanks, Lori

"In preparation of taking the NCMHCE I did a lot of research on what study guides to purchase. As an ACA member I quickly learned that Dr. Linton's counselingexam.com came highly recommended through fellow ACA members and was a favorite recommendation throughout the message boards. I found the website format simple and easy to navigate, well priced for all of the information as well as practice tests and encouragement to keep pushing through the studying process. As I was taking the test I found myself grateful for having used counseligexam.com because it was very similar to the actual format and this helped to decrease test anxiety and bring an overwhelming feeling of familiarity. Thankfully I passed the test, on my first and only attempt!"

Anyway, I took the exam this morning and I PASSED!!!!! Since I failed to pass the DM section last time, I was able to better prepare myself and added 30 points to the DM score this time!!!! You have been such a huge blessing to me throughout this uphill battle. You have provided replies to all of my comments and/or questions and provided me the resources that made a difference. I learned so much from your site and I continue to recommend it to everyone!

First off, my thanks to Dr. Hutchinson for putting together counselingexam.com. I would not have passed if I did not use his site as a resource. Well worth the investment in my opinion. I studied each night for one month prior to the exam. The simulations were very close, if not identical to the exam. Know your assessments and differential diagnoses. I felt the simulations gave you enough information to make a clear diagnosis. Do not over think or second guess yourself - I noticed that I selected options that I was initially not going to select, only to regret my decision. For those wondering if there were any questions related to group - yes, my exam had one group case - pretty straightforward - be familiar with the stages of group and ethics pertaining to group.

To the CounselingExam.Com team, I would like to thank you all for your assistance during this study time. I have taken numerous simulations and contribute 98% of my success to your site. I did some reading with traditional study methods (you know those actual tangible objects called books). The exam mirrored the simulations on the Counseling Exam website. I was very comfortable with the format when I took the exam today. I appreciated that there was such a dynamic on the site. You can do flash cards, pick and choose what you wanted to do, a full test simulation, case studies, group....so many options. When I was tired of doing simulations, I would pick flash cards or case studies - or eat more chocolate and mope (whatever works!) Truly, I must say I appreciate that this site exists. It would be nice to continue to have access at a rate monthly just to keep up your skills (many of the diagnosis and assessments I will have little exposure to). Billie

Dear Linton, I am elated, and just want to thank you for what I am certain was the single best investment of my time and resources in passing the NCMHCE. I passed it the first time around! I found your website several months ago, but was ambivalent about signing up. With the test date approaching, I encountered a couple of people who had said it was a difficult exam, but they had both passed using counselingexam.com. With that, I came home and signed up. My thoughts about the cost of a subscription to your website at this point? Consider the cost of re-taking the exam, along with lost work time, and itÕs apparent to me that it quickly pays for itself. I found the site to be rich with all different kinds of resources and even fun, sometimes silly exercises. I even listened to the audio and videos while I exercised! I loved the questions and the ten question tests. ItÕs just full of all different types of help, from flash cards to questions to videos; however, I found the simulations to be the most effective way to study. And true enough, when I got to the exam yesterday, there were no surprises; and I realized I had learned not only enough content, but most importantly, the test taking strategy. One cannot hold all the data in their memory, but one CAN learn the strategies you teach for passing the test. In addition to studying, other recommendations I would make (that helped me) include the use of the concept of "eustress". I even made a chart and taped it to my mirror, which targeted my desired stress level in order to optimize for the best performance possible. Thank you Hans Selye! :) I also recommend hard physical exercise the day before, which helps with a good nightÕs sleep. While we were not allowed to bring chocolate or even water into the testing room, I took a banana and a protein shake, which I consumed in my car just before the test. I also took earplugs, which were extremely helpful. Finally, I would say that our performance is improved when we enjoy what weÕre doing and find it interesting. That is another reason your website is so helpful. ItÕs fun, interesting and provides the right amount of levity. You have a good sense of humor. I am grateful for the counselingexam.com website, and heartily recommend it to anyone preparing to take the NCHMCE.

I just want to let you know that I took my test last Friday for my LPCC and I passed! It was the easiest test that I have ever taken. Your format for the simulations were right on and the questions were so similar that I virtually finished the test is less than 2 1/2 hours over and above what I needed to pass. No test anxiety over what to expect because your program truly prepared me for what to expect. I can't thank you enough!!!!!

Thanks for your letter. Yes, I would be pleased to contribute my personal story over the huge obstacle of passing the NCMHC exam. I know I enjoyed reading about your background, when you were out fishing in Florida, unaware of the need to apply for your clinical counseling license without the hardship of the testing process. Your story put reality to your photo that I would see whenever I would sign in to the Litton Hutchinson exam prep site. A real person with a similar struggle that your students were experiencing. Not just a logo! Perhaps others could be encouraged to hear that a 63 year old grandma can make the leap to success, they can also. Some of my background, far more than you would need for your purpose. I was a non traditional student, who took many years to achieve my college degrees. (My first husband I found murdered and the second husband had a stroke at a early age that left him a quadriplegic with two young children to rear) I worked as a realtor which gave me flexible time to be home with our children and attend the university. Then my mother became disabled with Parkinson's/dementia and since my brother had died at age 40 from alcoholism and my sister from diabetes after having her second leg amputated at age 42, I was the youngest and only remaining child to move in with her as her caretaker. When the great recession hit, at age 58 I began my second career as a License Professional Counselor in Ohio at an emergency mental health services agency. When I finally was able to sell my house in Toledo and move to Florida, I needed my LMHC to work, since social security survivor benefits didn't cover much of my expenses. I found fulfilment and meaning in encouraging others. It was a way to thank the many people who unknowingly had lifted me up when I felt overwhelmed. A coworker at the crises center I worked at told me about your program. She emphasized the importance of focusing on the test simulations. After reviewing the other test preparation sites, yours was determined to be superior. I spent much time reading the DSM 5 and made the mistake of waiting too close to the deadline of the exam to sign up for only a 30 review. Then I discovered all of the rest of the information that I didn't know. The various types of treatment, theories behind the approaches, group counseling, and testing inventories. Not to mention HIPPA rules, audits ... The first exam I had more than enough points on the Information Gathering portion but not the amount needed on the Decision Making. Since points were deducted for incorrect choices, I did not have enough confidence to select as many answers than a few. This is where I improved the second time around. I really appreciated that the repeat review was free especially after not being employed for more than a year! But additional time to study will help make me a more competent clinician and increase my professional knowledge. If you would like me to write a short reason why I was helped by your study program, just let me know what would be of most use to you. And I will like you on Facebook. Thank you for helping me pass the NCMHC exam today! It took two attempts but you gave me the extra 30 review for free! This is a life long aspiration of mine come true! I am age 63 and ready to use my past adversity and victory over many obstacles to encourage others. Hopefully wisdom comes with age. Most Appreciative, Bette

I just wanted to submit a review of this website. I recently passed the NCMHCE and owe this in large part due to this website. I failed it the first time I took it a year ago after studying through another website. I found this study guide much more comprehensive and it really helped me learn the patterns of the test. The biggest challenge of the NCMHCE is being able to identify what the test is looking for verses what my experiences are as a counselor and this guide helped me figure that out, so thank you!

I passed the NCMHCE Exam on Friday. I took nearly all of the 4 hours. I took my time, prayed through it and passed. Counselingexam.com is the best tool to use. It more than thoroughly prepared me for the exam. First try!!! Now off and counting hours before hanging my shingle. This group was very encouraging. Thanks to all of you.

I have been a licensed professional counselor in my state of Arizona for many years and have been in private practice here for 30 years. I took the NCE back in 1997 for my state licensure. Currently, I am relocating to the state of New Hampshire which requires the NCMHCE and they let me know under no uncertain terms that there would be no license for me without a passing score on this test. So…at the age of almost 60 I began to study with some other study materials that I found and ordered online…a huge, really boring manual which I hated but forced myself to read in its entirety! The materials included only five simulations, and the company encouraged you to wait til you’d gotten through all the materials to even start. They gave you a proprietary code which allowed you to access the simulations online only ONCE. I failed three of the five and when I went back into the questions to see what I missed, I discovered that I could see the mistakes I’d made, but the site wouldn’t allow me to see what the RIGHT answers were. And that was it. I was left being an “epic failure”. (That’s the language they used when scoring my simulations.) Perhaps you know of this company. So, there I was, five days away from the test and really significantly UNPREPARED. I went back online to see if any other sites would at least offer more simulations for me to practice with and that’s when I discovered your site. At that point I called and I think it was you (not sure) who answered the phone on a Sunday afternoon. You told me how to order your materials online which I did and immediately knew your materials were awesome, thorough, humorous, encouraging, and profoundly helpful. I spent the next four days glued to the computer screen. Besides having endless simulations with which to practice (and I did!), I also learned how to approach and interpret the test itself. You helped me CRACK THE CODE. And with that came confidence and success that increased over the four days. As I mentioned, I passed the exam with many points to spare. Anyway, your stuff is good. Thank you for offering it and making it so accessible and effective. You obviously put a lot of work into it. Whatever part of what I’ve shared with you that you’d like to use…or not…is fine with me. I’ll send a photo along in a separate email. If there’s any problem with that, let me know. Wishing you all the best. With gratitude, Ina

Dear Dr. Linton, Thank you so much for this full and helpful answer to my question a couple weeks ago. It did help me especially to clarify "rule outs", making those questions much simpler, and I was able to gain somewhat better judgment regarding the "plausibles". It was useful to realize that there was an exact list in the DSM that I should be referring to - though I've never figured out yet why/how some disorders are listed in the DSM as plausible and others with different overlapping traits are not considered plausible. But whatever! I went ahead and took my test last Friday, figuring that if I didn't pass it I'd then spend the time trying to memorize the plausible lists. However, it was enough assistance to get me over the pass line. Actually, I was pretty high over the pass line, and I'm going to give full credit to your counseling exam simulations for that. I did a relatively small amount of regular fact studying, but working through the simulations and learning from those as I went - both from gaining previously unknown content (easier to remember because I was applying it to the scenario rather than just reading the DSM, etc.) and from learning how to think through the questions. So, I wanted to give you two thank yous. First for you kind and thoughtful response to my email question, and second for the super-great service that you have developed and offered. Thank you, thank you. Jean

My supervisor told me that I'd be fine on the exam, but I wasn't so sure. I decided to subscribe to this site for a week, and after a week of looking over some of the information (there's to much to get through in just one week!) and failing most of the simulations I chose to reschedule my exam for a month out and purchase a one month subscription. By the day before the exam I was passing most of the simulations, and felt much more comfortable with differentials and assessments, groups and theorists. The most important thing was the practice exams. Even when I knew the information, learning how to take the exam, how the questions are likely to be asked and what answers the exam is looking for was so important. Dr. Linton's daily emails were full of helpful tidbits, and humorous lighthearted encouragement. I highly recommend counselingexam.com to help prepare! I passed my exam and it felt EASY.

Dr. Linton, I wanted to thank you for your help. I know I would not have been able to pass the exam without you. I took the NMHCE back in March and did not pass by 4 points :( !!!!! After taking the exam the first time I knew exactly why I failed...halfway into the test I rushed and was clicking my answers as if I was practicing in the website, I was going too fast. This time I followed your tips and took my time to answer. After the 5th simulation I took a short break, said a little prayer and went back into it with no hurry (OK the little prayer was just me). Your website covered the latest crucial information contained in the test, particularly helpful were the Clinical Supervision, Groups and the Breaking News and of course the simulations and the Gotta Know... Perhaps the most important section for me was the Differential Diagnosis and DSM 5 information as I graduated in 2012 when we were still learning based on the DSM IV.

Dr. Hutchinson, I wish to submit this review - Passing the NCMHCE was something that was elusive and very difficult for me. I attempted to pass the exam on 2 different occasions. After having no success I became depressed and rather ambivalent about ever taking the exam again. When I finally committed to trying again I purchased this program and developed a course of study. I followed the daily emails used flash cards and endless simulations. It was this multi-faceted approach that finally helped me reach my goal. I am happy relieved and rejuvenated. Sometimes the toughest tasks reveal the biggest sense of accomplishment. So if you were like me, feeling unable to reach your goal, your not alone. With hard work determination and this program YOU CAN DO IT. thank you for this program. It works !!! Jeffre

DSM5: I just want to thank you for developing this wonderful program. I just passed the ncmhce exam to be a LPCC, YEAH!! The way your program walked me down through the process and reviewed the DSM 5 was invaluable. The investment of this program was worth every penny and reasonable for a working mom. My whole family was so excited that I passed. The testing hints were beneficial, asking for paper, pencil, taking notes on each question helped me process and remember which question I was on. Basic Dialer, Personality Clusters, Symptom Clusters, reading the questions in a whisper was all such a huge help. Our computers were having technical difficulties, taking an extra hour to get started, then went blank and shut down again right before the first question got started and I did not get rattled. I just practiced my relaxation techniques, prayed and breathed, when the computers where ready, so was I. I felt confident that I was ready with prayer..God was with me to relax..visualization..I remembered to writ e down the above hints before I started to glance for processing. Your inspirational messages where very supportive and helpful..especially with a two job, three kids, spouse pets, mom busy life...Thank you, thank you. I am recommending the site to all counselors I know. Tammy

Hello, I wanted to personally thank you for all your help and fun things tucked in the study materials. I had a personal obstacle to test taking in that I had an AVM (neurological) surgery when I was 25 and so while my long term memory is pretty remarkable, my short term is limited. During my MA I was usually the last person left in a room taking a test as a result. Well, I did the NCMHE in 2 hrs and was so shocked to see I passed with flying colors!!!!! I am thanking God, my coworker, Lauren and you for this. I hope you have a great week. I am recommending your materials to 3 friends-one whom is nearer to taking the test than the others at this point. All things beautiful in His time, Kathi

DSM5: I wanted to personally thank you for your program.. It was well worth it. I posted a note on study buddy but I wanted to that you directly because I had had many questions that you and/or your staff helped me with. I have been licensed and practicing since 1991. I recently moved to NH and they required me to have passed the NCMHCE. Your products helped me to pass. A couple things that caught me off guard and bummed me a bit were: 1. they did not allow any food or beverage in the testing room.. I had to go out of the room to drink the water and eat the snickers you recommended... which I did. 2. They would only allow me two pieces of paper at a time. I used one piece of paper per 2 scenarios,so I was up and down several times. 3. They also would not allow me to use my own pens. I had to use their #2 pencils that were pre-shappened and lasted one scenario. I had to get up and get more pencils along with the paper. Had I known I would have been practicing with a pencil so that it would not have bummed me out at the beginning.. Overall... your products are right on. I studied an average of 2 hours a day for 9 weeks. I also purchased and reviewed extensively a DSM 5. Your simulations are the best things. They helped me to train my brain on what to look for. I created columns on each piece of stretch paper with headers: Symptoms, X (duration), Fx (Function), Support, Xdiag (disregard diagnosis)... Then as I read through the simulations I wrote down those things and it help me tremendously. Would be happy to share with you how I organized that... Again... thanks

DSM-5 Hello Dr. Hutchinson, I wanted to inform you that I passed the licensing exam! I truly believe if it were not for the material covered on your site in conjunction with your practice simulations, I would have likely been at sea without a life preserver. This is not for lack of knowledge and familiarity with much of what was covered, but the structure and mentality of the exam. You give candidates the edge, and your site singlehandedly eased my anxiety and provided an ability to flesh out what was being asked. Familiarity with the test format and forum controls was also very useful. I cannot thank you enough for providing such a helpful, consummate site. I am excited about the new chapter ahead! Kindest regards, Ashley

Hi Linton, I just passed my exam on Monday with an 85%!!!! I was so worried about passing because I am trained as a somatic and existential therapist. However, I almost feel as if I've taken a course in CBT just by doing your simulations (often more than once!) Your site was excellent and so very similar to the exam. They included a decent amount of information on groups and supervision and administration. The fact that your site continues to be updated to reflect the current DSM and exam trends meant a lot. Kudos to you for the work you've done in helping us to get licensed!!! Many, many thanks, Elisabeth

Before, coming across your site, I was utilizing another site and was continuously failing the practice scenarios.... I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong! After registering with your site, I was able to identify my deficiencies due to the way you assist in disseminating the practice scenarios and providing a wealth of information. Your practice simulations and set-up were much alike those found on the NCMHCE. Although I was nervous (yeah!), I was confident in the knowledge I had gained through your site and in my ability to pass the exam. I thank you for helping me achieve one the most challenging, but yet rewarding professional goals to date! I wish you much success in all that you do. Sheri

Hi Dr. H! I am thrilled to report that I passed the DSM-5 NCMHCE today. Thank you for developing very useful study materials. My best advice to future test takers is to do as many of your practice simulations as possible. The best way to crack this exam is be completely familiar with the test format and the test maker's overall approach. I would also strongly recommend using scratch paper and writing down all of the symptoms presented at the beginning of each case. Then, write down your diagnostic impressions before clicking next. I felt this approach prevented me from reading into the possible answers, but rather I stayed true to my initial gut instinct. Thanks again! Raina

Linton, I had taken the test three months ago and missed passing it by five points. (Heartbreaking). You were gracious enough to give me additional time with the practice sessions before I took it again. (I guess being in private practice for over 25 years in Ohio wasn't good enough for Florida and they were insisting I pass the national exam which wasn't required in Ohio when I got licensed.) I took it last Friday, and solidly passed it. Thank you again so much, and I have passed your website on to several other people as a good resource for preparing for this test.

I just wanted to say thank you for helping me through a challenging milestone! Sincerely, Laura

Hi - I just wanted to let you guys know that I passed my licensure exam on Monday March 3rd, 2014. I paid for a full month and then I added an extra week which was worth it. I would like to thank you guys. I used another website before and I failed. Your website provided me with all the information I needed which gave me the confidence to pass the exam. Thank you guys I have recommended this website to a couple of my friends. Thanks again!

I just wanted to let you know that I used counselingexam.com to study for the NCMHCE and I passed! The simulations were exactly like the ones on the exam and I felt very prepared and confident during the exam. I was given 4 hours (and planned to use every minute), but I was able to complete the exam in 2 hours because I was prepared. Thank you for taking the time to develop a site like this - it's the best test prep resource I've come across in a long time. It was worth every penny! Thanks Again, Tiffany

Dear Dr. Hutchinson, Just wanted to tell you that I passed my NCMHCE and I owe it all to your incredible studying format. I had tried a previous program before I knew about yours the first time, and failed the test. I was given your site by a colleague and was very satisfied with it. The site covered everything I needed to know with good information and techniques for passing. I ordered the study guide as a supplement and will keep it as a resource guide. The simulation practice was invaluable and really increased my skill level in finding the important information in making a diagnosis. I would highly recommend it to anybody preparing to take the exam. Thank you for doing a thorough job of analyzing the complexities of the exam and putting it in a user friendly format that enhanced my studying experience. Sincerely, Carol

Dear Dr. Hutch, I don’t know if this is the right email address but here we go. I had been studying for the past three month with another site that offered good stimulations but nothing else. I felt I needed more to pass as I was not doing so well on some of the simulations. I found your site and used the 1 week membership. I used all of your wonderful flashcards, tips, and all the other helpful categories pretty much all day for a week. At some point I was scoring really high and it became all very clear. I passed with a really high score a few days ago and never doubted myself through the exam. Your website is awesome and worth every penny. Thank you so much, With gratitude, Sylvia

I passed the NCMHCE today. I had purchased other study materials but was persuaded to purchase 4 weeks of access to your materials. I attribute your materials to my success and feelings of being prepared. The chained practice exams were really confidence building and I recalled a number of test tips during the exam which also gave me the confidence needed. I found myself telling myself..."It's in there." I guess it was because the results were...passed on the first try. Thank you for being such a great resource. I will recommend your study materials as a top choice!

Linton, I am pleased to say that due to your materials, I passed on the first try. The practice exams and study materials were so effective. It not only provided me with the information I needed for the exam, but it prepared me (100%) in learning how to take the exam. Knowing the material is not enough, but understanding the layout of the exam and how to take the exam is essential; I learned the strategy through your case simulations. Not only were your study materials outstanding, but you always went above and beyond to assist in my learning process. You sent out daily study tips and responded immediately to any questions I may have had. It was a pleasure hearing from you personally and not from some automated machine. I have provided your information to many of my friends who may have graduated or looking to begin studying for the exam, I highly recommend your services!!! Thank you!!! Francine

I just wanted to let you know that I took my NCMHCE exam last Wednesday and passed! Learning how to take this test was a bit confusing for me at first. A friend who used your online study material recommended counselingexam.com to me. I was so happy to have found you because I had been searching for study materials and was having a hard time finding something. The practice simulations prepared me very well for the exam. I think that the practice simulations you provided were even more difficult than the actual test which meant I was overly prepared. Not a bad thing. The 4 hour test took me 1 hour and 40 minutes. I highly recommend your online prep material for anyone taking the LPCC. Thanks! Karla

Testing has never been an issue for me until this exam! I do not know if it was the personal family trauma I was dealing with or the test (more than likely the combination) but I took the exam early last year and did not pass by 2 points on the DM side....Dr. Linton honored his agreement and I was able to practice and did not have to pay extra. I want to thank you. I took the exam yesterday and passed! It is safe to say that you must know the DSM. If I were to suggest a purchased package to anyone it would be Dr. Linton Hutchinson's counseling licensure exam site. Trust that I paid for several other study sources and operating on the "if I knew then what I know now" premise I would have studied the DSM backwards and forwards, purchased his study guide and his simulation package first and only. Good luck to all who choose to take the NCMHCE...you will not be wasting your money or your time by investing in Dr. Linton's program. Thanks again for the hard work you do keeping updated on the information needed to prepare.

I utilized your Counselingexam.com site to obtain my LMHC, and now the addictionsexam.com site to pass my ICRC exam to obtain my CAP certification today. I passed the exam with much room to spare and the study questions from your site were quite useful. So...I got it right the first time 2 times! Spending money on your site to study was a very wise investment in that it saved me from ever having to take these exams more than once. I now have 7 letters after my name in credentials and your study sites aided greatly in that. Mark - Ft. Lauderdale.

Just thought I'd share with you that I just passed the NCMHCE on my first try. Thanks for the web site. I'm recommending it to everyone I know who has not yet taken the exam. I'm so glad that my professor, Kevin Marrone, told me about the site. One thing I noticed about the exam is that there is no "jumping around" from section to section. A lot of people had said that the test instructs you to go to the various sections and that they are out of order (e.g.: after section A you are instructed to go to section E and from there perhaps to section C, etc.) but that is no longer true. When you click the button to move on the computer just pulls up the next set of information. Hailey

I passed the test. I am grandfathering my license from another state and have had to take 3 tests in the process. I have been out of school since the 90's and my life has been absorbed and stressed with these tests and 2 classes. I failed this one the first time; I thought would be a no-brainer (it was not), so I hardly studied and failed by 3 points. What a helpful site you have here! I felt about as adept as one can feel with a test like this. Thank you so much for all the information and guidance.

I took the NCMHCE on Saturday in Richmond Virginia. I passed the exam and am so happy to get that phase of my life completed. I have been in this process for over 8 years now. Between additional course work and meeting the requirements for supervision it has been a long process. The test is made for individuals that are fresh out of graduate school. For a person that has been in the field for over 12 years it can be difficult. It is very easy to over think the questions on the test and instead rely on the clinical skills that has been gained while working. Signing up for access to the website and using the simulations to assist in my studying was a game changer. It am sure it was the difference in passing the exam for the first time. I have suggested to colleagues that when they are in the phases of preparing for the exam that they need to include this website into their study process. Thanks for the site. It was well worth the price to gain membership and use in my preparation for the test! I am grateful for this site.

Hi Dr. Linton, I wanted to let you know that I passed my NCMHCE exam today (7/19/13)-with a score way above the passing score. I could not have done it without you and the resources that your site provides. I actually found the exam not as hard as I thought it was going to be but that is perhaps because you prepared me so well. After reading all of the study material, I did every single simulation on your site, almost all of the questions/breakout questions, and did all 6 of the final practice exams. The scores from my final practice exams were very close to my actual score today so the exams that you have created are a good reflection of the actual exam. Thank you so much for all your help and for the extra free day you gave me me, which also helped. I will be telling everyone I know who plan to take the exam to use your site. Amali

I think it really helped that you had case studies that I could go through and practice. Thank you again for this website and I definitely going to let everyone know to use your website for the NCMHCE. It took me a little over 3 hours because I had to stop and organize each question and even though I did get a few "not indicated/not discussed," taking those breaks helped a lot. Thank you again!

Dr. Hutchinson, Your simulations were spot on. My advice would be to become familiar with duration of symptoms in order to rule out a diagnosis. Not necessarily memorize the DSM from cover to cover, but definitely be familiar. I arrived at the testing center expecting to be there there whole time, but your simulations really made it feel like I had already taking the test before. For that reason, I completed it in just two hours, and I was absolutely not trying to rush. I will make sure to refer my colleagues to your website. It was so helpful to me, and I will let them know that. Thank you again for your time and effort in creating these simulations. It really made such a difference. Honestly, I don't know if I would have passed had it not been for your website. Sincerely, Nely

I am writing just to thank you. I just took my LMHC exam on 6/10/2013 and I passed it. It was my second time taking it, and I failed it the first time by 2 points after studying for a month the first time. You gave me my time back and I started studying again, but this time, I went through all the scenarios and I took a hotel near my site for two days and quietly reviewed the information and when I went I knew that I had the information down pack, i just needed to relaxed, so I did some relaxation techniques while at the test site and took a break when I needed a break and I passed. Thank you so, so very much. God Bless

I passed my NCMHCE in less than 80 minutes today, thanks to your website! I was even late to the testing site and feeling flustered but I still rocked it out because I knew that I had been passing all of my simulation exams. I will continue to recommend the counselingexam.com site to anyone who will listen because it is pretty much the only tool I used to pass both my NCE and NCMHCE. My advice: sign up for 3 months and take every single practice test you possibly can. On the day of your test you'll sit down and it'll feel familiar, not scary at all. It really is in there!

Your website perfectly prepared me for passing the NCMHCE exam today!! Over 1 1/2 months, I outlined the DSM, reviewed my theories & techniques, assessments and did simulations. Passed with 81% and 82%, well above minimum passing level. The most important thing is to understand the logic behind the test. If you're actively counseling, you should know the material with a little review. Good luck and if you're hesitating about subscribing, don't. Everyone I know used this website to pass.
Laura
USA -
The only thing that I can say to others who are planning on taking the test is to study and know the basics to counseling. That would included but not memorizing the DSM. They must know it and how to identify the axis as well as the meditions used for the different type of disorders. Most of all is to know the basic because after all you have to know how to recognize symptoms in order to know your diagnosis, which in term is where you need to know your diagnosis in order to recognize symptoms. Needless to say, once the basics are in then use your site and practice, practice, practice simulations. Your simulations are helpful because they are actually more challenging then the actual exam. I'm not sure if it is because i spent a whole day working on simulations but they were VERY helpful for me. Your site is WONDERFUL and HELPFUL. Everyone should use it as a guide. And lastly, do buy the study guide. The study guide was worth evey last of my penny spent.

I am in Massachusetts and I took the NCMHCE exam yesterday--and passed! I absolutely know that I would not have passed the exam without your online study course. It has been seven years since I graduated with my M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Although I have been working as a school adjustment counselor, that's still a lot of time--and forgetting--since I last thought about axis I-V and DSM-IV-TR diagnosing. A year ago I became physically disabled which has necessitated me reshaping much of my life, including my career, as I am no longer able to work as I had previously. I scoured the internet searching for study guides to prepare for taking the NCMHCE. I checked the Massachusetts Mental Health Counselor's Association, the NBCC, Amazon, public libraries, university libraries, everywhere I could think of for study resources and aids. Everything I could find was either way too expensive or, because of my disability, inaccessible. As I searched, I kept coming across Dr. Linton Hutchinson and CounselingExam.com--but I was nervous. I continued researching my options and kept returning to your program. I read the reviews on your website and reveiws of your program different counselors had posted on their websites. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive. The fact that you accept PayPal and BillMeLater enabled me to take the plunge. I initially signed up for one month and after three weeks signed up for a second month. It fit in perfectly as I had two months before taking the exam. I recommend your program to everyone who is preparing to sit for the NCMHCE! Your simulation format IS the NCMHCE. I admit I was apprehensive as I sat in front of the computer on test day--what if I've been had!--I could not have been better prepared. I was able to individualize my studying, as I went through your program, to meet my specific learning needs. The practical day-of-the test support as well as your humor helped to ease my pre-test tension and apprehensions. The number of simulations available gave me more opportunities for practice and learning than I could get through in the two months I studied before the exam. The responses and explanations provided, question by question, line by line, helped me clearly understand where I was slipping up and set me on the right track. You cover every area of the test, all the aspects of insight a counselor needs, as well as explaining important test-taking strategies. I passed! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Sincerely, Roselle

Dear Linton, I passed on the first try with significant room to spare! The simulations were very helpful in terms of structure of the questions. There were more choices often and I almost always had to scroll down, but the practice from your tests was great preparation. Thank you!

I don't have a question, I just wanted to tell you that I took my NCMHCE test last Monday and PASSED IT because of your fabulous website. I could not have done it without everything that helped me prepare for it and I have recommended the site to all of my friends. Thank you so very much!

I looked for many test prep aids, and overlooked yours early on because I thought it offered only 10 test prep simulations … when I discovered you ha d250 and 6 actual final simulations, I knew this was the best test prep tool available and signed up immediately, renewing my subscription as a step in my final preparation. I would recommend your resources to anyone who is seriously preparing. Thank you , the simulations made all the difference in my success at passing the actual exam. Thank you, I am very grateful. Pat

My name is Milton. During the last couple of years I have used your online study site to successfully pass the NCMHCE (LMHC), the CRC examination and several months ago purchased both sets of the audio CDs to prepare for the AMFTRB Marriage and Family Therapist Examination (LMFT). For the NCMHCE and CRC examinations your online study site was absolutely invaluable. As a Qualified LMHC Supervisor here in Florida, I recommend your website to all of the LMHC Interns I supervisor. I am now planning on taking the LMFT examination in June 2013 and hope my track record of success with these examinations continues.

Hello Dr. Linton, This is Sabrina from Orlando and I wanted to let you know that I passed my NCHMCE exam today !!! Yipee.:-). I am so grateful to you and your website for all of the very helpful and pertinent information, I utilized the 30 days online subscription, the CD's which allowed me the opportunity to listen to the information whenever I was in the car and oh yea the Tidbits information was extremely helpful. So look out world here I come...smile. I will continue to share with my colleagues and others just how helpful your website is and suggest it for anyone that is looking for a comprehensive NCMHCE review, because I know first hand that your review helped me pass the exam. May God continue to bless and keep you and your family, Sabrina

Hi Dr. Hutchinson, Im sorry I am just getting back to you.. I had taken a few days off work to study and as you know.. just because we focus on something else doesn’t mean that our job stops. So I have been returning calls and trying to get people scheduled in. I do think that your simulations were more difficult then the actual exam that I took.... AND I AM SO GLAD that they were more difficult because I felt like I breezed through the simulations on the exam. I was done in 1.5 hour and it was a 4 hr test. (which is weird b/c I am an awful test taker)

I thought for sure I would be taking this exam twice but I am not. I would encourage anyone to use your site, not only for the simulations but also for the tidbits of knowledge about test anxiety.

Trifecta completed! Thank you Dr. Hutchinson, I have used your content-rich and well designed website to pass yet another licensure exam. I first used your site to pass the NCE in 2005. Just this past November I again studied for the MFT exam using your site and passed that exam on the first attempt. Today, after doing every clinical simulation on your website, I took and passed the NCMHCE! Trifecta and thank you very much. I will be telling folks who are preparing for these exams about your site. Thank you very much. Very respectfully, Eric

Dear Linton, The preparation I received from Licensure Exams to pass my LMHCE was excellent. Your program was more than ample to passing with ease. Your simulations were key for me; and are actually more difficult than the test. I felt it akin to conditioning with heavy weights and then for the performance the weights were surprisingly light! You may want to share that about your simulations so that folks will increase their confidence regarding them. Thank you for all that you do to see us off to success. With thanks, Mona

I just wanted to thank you again for developing such a wonderful program. I called on Wednesday to tell you that I PASSED!! I would not have passed without using the program. I did the 1 week course for about 5-6 hours a day. The cost was significantly less than any other study program out there and the option to do a week intensive was very appealing to me. It worked! Thank you!

Good morning Dr. Hutchinson, As promised, I want to reflect on NCMHCE exam as now I know what it is like and an impression I am having now is quite different from what my expectations were before taking an exam. I have to admit that Passing this exam feels as an incredible accomplishment and like no other experience. Exam is challenging, long and tests a very broad spectrum of competencies and accurately depicts the nature of our profession. I have to admit that! What helped me pass (as I am analyzing it after taking exam): -Studying the basics-I studies all those bits of information in ALL areas of study. While studying I kept creating my own bag of flashcards and which was the most helpful method of memorization/compartmentalization of most important bits of information. Memorize important pieces and connect them using logic. -Your simulations helped the most. I did all of them several times over months. Basically did the simulations until knew WHY to pick one choice over the other and until simulations start making “complete” sense. Mindful practicing of simulations is one of the most important parts of preparation and helped me the most. -Outside of studying, one needs to think of the logic of WHY we do things in a profession the way we do them. Everything should be logically connected to the client’s situation, diagnosis, tx plan and aftercare. Although this sounds as common sense, I spent time just thinking of the PROCESS of client care. This also includes knowing exactly what happens in the beginning, middle and at the end of client care process. - Diagnosis is huge! Knowing DSM inside and out is a must, including all NOS and Unspecified categories. Your small exams for diagnostic impressions helped a lot-to repeat and keep in memory symptoms, duration, onset etc. On exam-Write ALL information down as you read scenarios. This might feel overwhelming as you continue to accumulate more and more pieces of information, but this will pay off when you have it under your fingertips when it is needed!!! (A Moment of truth!) This information will be needed later. This advice I took from you and this helped me PASS. Do not rely on your memory-memory is not omnipotent and this will not work for this long 4 hour exam! -As you read scenarios, try to conceptualize information from get going. Imagine, what the client’s situation like, what would you do without even reading the answers in terms of possible dx, tx options etc. As you read the scenario 1st time ,try to imagine that you already know what to do in a situation (and you do know because of already having experience) -When you don’t understand the question - read it, reread it until you understand. -Use relaxation during exam-stress accumulate quickly. When feel stressed or anxious - stop all for a moment and try your best to relax. Remember that anxiety hinders an ability to concentrate, which is necessary to maintain to pass. -PERSEVERE through this exam. Most likely, at certain points, you will start feeling tired, exhausted, discouraged, feel as if you have been" put through the grinder". No matter how you feel, continue putting your best, do not give up as all it matters is to PASS! Do not doubt during exam-continue! I hope this helps everybody to pass the 1st time. Maya

Thanks SOO much, Linton! Just wanted to let you know I passed my NCMHCE exam today! Your web site was indispensable in terms of providing me with lots of opportunity for practice and relevant information. I truly found your website to be fabulous and not only did I prepare for the exam successfully, but I also learned so very much in the process that will help me in my work! As far as tips are concerned, this may be obvious but working slowly and carefully is essential. The direct linking logic is what I focused on; remembering that what they're really looking for is the test taker's ability to connect symptoms with appropriate diagnoses, goals, treatments and techniques. People have to remember that this is not about what they may do in their own work, but more about what the literature recommends. It's important to be aware of ethical issues, something I was not sufficiently aware of the first time I took the exam. Thanks again and I will recommend that colleagues use your website.

I PASSED! Thank you. So failing by 2 points on one section was pretty bad. Today I passed one of the sections by 20 points and the other by 25 points. Thanks for all the advice. I ended up signing up for your site for 3 months, and then another 3 months and then again for just this last week. Today's inspiration said something about thinking about of how much time I'll have in my life once I pass. My family and I thank you! Amy

Hello, As I mentioned a little while ago, I just passed my LMHC test. First, Kudos to Counselingexam.com! It really gave me the edge I needed. Even though there were a ton of study aids on the site, all I used were the practice scenarios. What I loved about them was that they explained why I got an answer right or wrong. This helped me learn what the test was looking for; as well as where the test was trying to trick me. Another thing I loved about the scenarios was that, when I took the the actual test, I saw that the real questions were actually somewhat easier than the ones on the site! Advice about the test I can give people? Bring a sweater; even if it's 100 degress out. They will undoubtedly be cranking the AC. Also, do your best not to freak-out when someone finishes first - or if you're the last one in the room. Remember that you've paid good money to be there...and will have to pay again each and every time you take it. Also, take the practice tests on Counselingexam.com (not just the scenarios), but the ones that mimic the actual test. I failed the test my first time (before going to the site and getting a 3mos subscription) so I knew what to expect. But, the first time I saw it, the test was much different in appearence than anything I'd seen online for practicing. Lastly, remember that once you click on an answer, that's your choice. You CAN NOT go back and change it. So make sure you choose wisely. Good Luck! Thanks, -Al

Hi Dr. Hutchinson - Thanks to YOU, I passed the NCMHCE on October 9th. It wasn't the first time I took it but it was the first time I used YOUR program to study for it! I don't know why I didn't think of writing to you sooner because you helped me pass the NCE on the first try a little over a year ago. I didn't know you also had a program for the NCMHCE until I came across it accidentally online. After working with you, I finally understood what they were looking for... Thank you sooooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Helen

Dr. Hutchinson: God as my witness; had I not taken your study guide I would have never been prepared for the exam. I did all the simulations. I started with doing ten at a time, because that is what I was going to be doing at the time of the exam. In the beginning I guessed, and i took notes from each, The reason you gave, as to why I would not ask certain question, and why I would ask this kind. Each type of information you provided was important. If it was a diagnosis of ADHD, I wrote down all the different types of interventions I would use, and the different assessment tools I would use, as it was on your program. I had the mindset that my office was in the cyberworld, and those were people each day sitting in the waiting room to see me. Each night before I went to bed, I read my notes, even when I didnt want to. After awhile, it just clicked. It all came together in my head. I remembered your words, "How can I help this person cope with what is happening and return back to a normal level of functioning. Albert is upset and depressed. What would help Albert to be happy.." short term goals..etc I read the DSM IV made easy front to back and took notes from it . Your program helped me understand what to do with this person from beginning to end. The DSM IV help me understand for what reason they needed my help. I honestly only studied two months but consistent. I also knew when to stop. When learning was not happening for me, maybe because of what was happening around me, or I was tired. I would stop. I knew my limits.When I took the exam, I took my time. I wrote down everything. I wasn't nervous, even though a job offer relied on passing the test that day. The test was exactly like your simulations so it was like I was sitting in my office once again. The Lady told me I used more paper than anyone she had ever seen, but I finished the test in about 2 1/2 hours, because I knew it. On the Decision making, out of the Max score of 14 I scored 12. I am telling you none of my professors at school or classes prepared me in the way your program did. I just thank God you had this tool available. I may sound like I'm singing you praises, but I didn't use all the tools you had available. I did read everything you had included on the homepage, but my main focus was doing the simulations and taking notes from them. I have told everyone about it. I wish I could afford to keep it as a tool, because I would like to be able to work thru the simulations again.

Dr. Hutchinson, I put off taking my exam for 15 years! I FINALLY got around to taking the exam after studying 3 months (using the 3 month subscription). I mostly did the vignettes over and over and over. Also, the final full test practice exams were VERY helpful (the 4 tests you have there under Final Simulations). Your site allowed me to learn the structure of the exam, how to logically tackle the vignettes, and I was able to pass on the first try! Like you stated in all those inspirations "Getting it right the first time!!" Thanks, Mark

I passed the exam! Without question, your site was very instrumental in my ability to succeed. The biggest factor was the large number of simulations that you offer.

Taking the actual test felt very familiar after so many practice simulations. I would recommend this site to anyone preparing for the exam. Thanks! Mary

Hello, For exam-takers: My name is Anna, and I just passed t he NCMHCE exam. From my experience, simulations are key- they are detailed and really do a great job of preparing one for the exam's framework. Half of the difficulty for me was figuring out what to study and how much of it to study. Here in IL, I took a prep class via IMHCA and it was very very helpful in terms of strategic prep. Counselingexam.com supported most of that course's ideas and the two paired together really provided strong study resources.

I just got home from taking the NCMHCE and wanted to let you know that I passed, with many points to spare! I attribute this passing score to your amazing website and all the resources available on it. I particularly found the simulations to be the most helpful; I ran through several simulations each day for two weeks straight. When I took the exam, which completed in a little under two hours. At any rate, FYI for future test takers of the NCMHCE I found my biggest mistake was not reading slowly enough - anxiety was definitely part of this problem. I missed two questions because on one I simply did not see the word "not" in it and another question that said "Choose one" and I began selecting a ton...after I kept getting "not indicated" I remembered your advice and literally bonked my head and mentally said, "DOH!" like Homer Simpson and reread the question. I think one of the other important things to remember when taking this test is that you will likely lose points, and it's important to breath when that happens because it can quickly derail you. Also, like you say on your website and emails, the test isn't tricking you. What it says in the vignette's is really what they mean. Try your hardest NOT to read into it, that is where you can get into big trouble. Thank you, Dr. Hutchinson, I know I could NOT have passed without your awesome website; not only is it amazingly user friendly, but your feedback was awesome, and your personal emails giving insight and hope truly made me feel like you cared and that you didn't want just my money, you wanted me to know that I can and will pass...and I DID! Best of luck to those future NCMHCE takers! You can do it :)! Warmly, Anna

Dear Linton, I took my NCMHCE test yesterday. It was a very emotional day as soon as woke up in the morning; I sat to write down the pros and cons of failing this test. I had a full sheet of goals and new projects I could do after passing my LCPC. My most important goal was to increase myself confidence, then start some new projects. After I finished the test my whole body was shaking because those results were going to change my career and my life. When the proctor said madam," you passed". I believe it was one of the happiest days in my life since passing my NCMHCE has been one of the most important dreams for the last 6 years so and these goal has been accomplished in my career. Dr. Hutchinson I could not have done it without you since you provided me the encouragement and support after allowing me to use your study package several times without any charges. Your kindness and support helped me to pass this test. I'll pass the word to my colleagues who would will be taking the test in the near future.

I just want to say Thank you for the support! I took the test this morning in Florida and passed with flying colors! I think that doing the simulations over and over was key.. Without a doubt I will recommend counselingexam.com!

Hi Linton: The strategy that I found most helpful was to get in my brain, it doesnt matter what I do where I work; Assessments and info gathering at work are TOTALLY different from what they are looking for in the test. Working in Community mental health, we gather ALOT of information for assessments. When doing the simulations, I kept running up against "not indicated" UNTIL I really listened and GOT your advice on linking symptoms and stressors ONLY back to anything that is done. practice practice practice the simulations/case studies.. really got me used to the what the test would look for. One more thing: the night before - just read (briefly) over things that I was still fuzzy on, diagnostically and the morning of, i relaxed and did not look at one thing exam related. my mantra: Breathing in calmness, Breathing out correct answers.

Linton, Just wanted you to know that I pass the NCMHCE exam on June 8. Using your program prepared me so completely that I felt as if I was doing 10 of your practices simulation. I felt good about the results and passed with very good scores. My only regret is that I did not use your program to study for the NCE. That test was extremely difficulty and I didn't feel half as prepared. Your website is the place I will refer all of my cohert too. Thank you I could not have been this successful without your program. Sincerely, Desmond

5.15.12 - I took the NCMHCE exam this morning and passed the 1st time!! The exam was difficult. I did simulations for 3 months and studied the DSM. I learned a lot taking the practice simulations, thanks to the pop-ups. Best exam-day advice...take a couple breaks - my energy dipped during the 2nd half of the exam but the water/snack break replenished me. Relax on test day -- it's in there!

I took the NMHCE exam last month and the NCE this month - I passed both of them!! Counselingexam.com was a fantastic site for studying both tests!

THANK YOU!!!

Dear Linton Thank you for your comprehensive counseling exam website. I used it for both the NCE and the NCMHCE examination preparation. I can happily report that I was successul for both the LPC and LCPC licenses here in Illinois. The strategy of persistence in tandem with your accurate simulations is the key to success. The payoff was a rather pleasant confidence during the examination process.
Edward

I can honest say that if I had not subscribed to this service I would be taking the exam again! The simulations forced me to know the information, use my critical thinking, and generate a strategy to handle certain types of questions. Thank you for help me helping me successful launch my purpose!

I just wanted to thank you helping me pass both my NCE and a few years later my NCMHCE! I felt your site prepared me incredibly well for both exams. The practice simulations were right on target for the kinds of questions both tests gave out. And even though in both cases I had very little time to prepare (about a month), your site still gave me everything I needed to pass.

Hi Dr. Hutchinson, I passed the NCMHCE this morning, praise the Lord! I appreciate the help your website, ebook, audio discs, and practice tests provided. I think your practice tests were more difficult to pass (at least I scored higher on NBCC's test). Best wishes, Matt

I wanted to thank you for the availability of this web-site, the simulations and overall content of the material was very helpful! I took the exam today for the first time and PASSED!! I really believe it was the explanation 'pop ups' which came with each chosen answer during the simulations that helped me pass. Those made me slow down and think critically about the most appropriate answer.

The NCMHCE content on Dr. Hutchison's website was very informative. I passed my exam with flying colors yesterday for the Virginia LPC; obtaining 141 on Information Gathering (needed 110 to pass) and 139 on Decision Making (needed 129 to pass). I finished in 70 minutes despite having a four hour time limit. His strategies of reading the question and using a scratch piece of paper to write down important information on the case was very helpful. I recommend practice taking the simulations. I took 15-20 simulations per day, morning and evening. I laughed as I took the exam because it felt just like the practice exam and I was able to confidently answer questions and felt I had passed. Thanks so much for assistance with this time consuming process that I can now put behind me and put my LPC to good use. Thank you, Nick

Good Day, I took my exam. Thanks to your website and simulations, I was actually EXCITED to take the exam--not anxious, but EXCITED. Not only did I pass, but I left the exam no later than 10:45am. It was a combination of prayer, studying and practice with the simulations. I gained more confidence as I completed the simulations daily, often doing about 20 scenarios a day. Your inspiratons were helpful, compelling me to study some more when I was tired of being tired of studying, lol! I hated that I had to pay for the service as I had purchased some wasteful study materials prior to purchasing it (especially in this rough economy, surely you can understand). With that said, your website/program was one of my better investments of the year. Thanks, Tracy

Dear Linton, Like everyone else who has passed this test, I'd like to THANK YOU for formulating such a user-friendly, and well developed set of simulations. These simulations *literally* paved the way for me to pass, first shot. LOVED them! A friend who passed the first time gave me this bit of advice: "learn the various clinical tests used for diagnosing, and do simulations continuously....if you do that, you will pass." SHE WAS CORRECT! This was exactly what I did, and I passed, and did well. In closing, I really want you to know that other than producing a wonderfully built study device, your concern for your students is unparalleled. This product, and it's developer are A+++. Blessings and Thanks for a wonderful experience, Kim :)

Dr. Hutchinson, I wanted to thank you and the counseling exam staff for helping me pass my exam for the NCMHCE for my LMHC in Indiana. I currently work as a Readjustment Counseling Therapist providing counseling for combat veterans for the VA. Passing this test means the stress of passing the test is lifted and I can put my full focus back on expanding my skills for meeting the needs of our Veterans. I am so happy to be able to have met my goal of becoming licensed and your study program was key in helping me meet that goal. Keep doing what you do.

Dear Linton -- I just wanted to drop you a sincere note of gratitude for your website. I passed the NCMHCE exam on 8/5 largely due to the preparation I did using counselingexam.com.

I’m already singing your praises and recommending the site to other interns who will be taking the exam in the next few months. Thanks again, Jackie

I passed my NCMHC exam yesterday and I want to express my gratitude to Dr. Hutchinson's website. There is no way I could have passed this exam without the help of this website.How do I know? Because that is exactly what happened to me the first two times I took the test; I failed. I then made the wise investment for these services and I passed. I also want to say that what helped me the most was doing the computer generated simulations. I did these things everyday...one or two here, one or two there, and just really committed myself to grasping the "concepts" of what the test was looking for. When I took my exam this last time, I had confidence and a positive mindset because I really knew what to anticipate and how to answer. One other piece of advice, even though it may be hard, don't guess. If you're not sure, just go to the next question. Trust me on this. Good luck to everyone. I did it, and so can you!!!

I just wanted to say thank you so much, the information and practice on this site is invaluable. I failed the NCMHCE the first time, was really not prepared for the structure of the test. Your site reminded me to slow down, write down additional info, and make choices before looking at the answer selections. I passed with flying colors, well above minimum scores in both areas. I only saw 4 “not indicated” throughout the entire exam and was confident that I had passed. This was the best money for study materials that I have ever spent! Joan

Dear Dr. Linton Hutchinson: I am so grateful to you for making this web site, I don't know how I would have passed the exam without your preparation site! I passed LMHC test today, with tears in my eyes and mild anxiety. The test was very difficult, but I knew all the correct diagnoses, and was able to avoid wrong answers just by skipping them, and being mindful of how I answered questions. Your web site prepared me well. I studied 270 cases, 7 cases on a daily basis, full time for 3 months!

Your site was great and I don't believe I would have passed without it! I had decided that if I wasn't successful in passing my test the first time, I would be O.K. in knowing that I was a better Counselor for having studied with you!

Linton, I recently passed the NCMHCE exam with far more ease than I had anticipated, and in all fairness I must attribute my success to reviewing the clinical scenarios that are an integral part of your company’s study program. In fact, until very recently I been utilizing material from another study course, but due to a lack of viable comprehension, I decided to transition to your study-site: It was the best move I could have made! Please feel free to post my anecdote on your site, and I will certainly remind my colleagues of your program as they begin preparing for licensure. Tom

Hi, Linton - just letting you know that I passed the NCMHCE today with flying colors. What a relief!!! I think your site was just about equal to the real exam, in terms of ease-difficulty. It took my only an hour and a half, but I wasn't trying to be quick or anything. Also, I think your sims were helpful for knowing the format of the exam. Thanks, Laurie

Not a question just a comment. I just took the LMHCE test in the state of Florida. I used your site for 30 days then 7 days just before the test. I was informed by many of my collegues that this was the best site ever. I have passed the test. I am 60 years old and only had one chance to take it to save face. Your practice exam was exactly what was needed. Thank you very much

Good news, I passed the NCMHCE today thanks to your prep program, tips and words of encouragement. It was especially a challenge for me having to filter out 16 years of experience.I know I would not have had the motivation to take the test the 2nd time without your encouragement. Thank you so much. Cara

Linton, Thanks so much for your kind and inspiring words. I've given it some thought and to tell you the truth, I don't have any suggestions. It seems to me that your preparation course covers everything and challenges the student to the point of craziness BUT that's why I passed. The exam was pretty easy really. I was surprised. I prepared for the NCE with your on-line package and the NCMHCE again. I passed both the first time. Before I tried the on-line package for the NCMHCE I tried two other preparatory courses and did not find them half as helpful as yours. I had forgotten about counselingexam.com after I took the NCE. A friend of mine who used counselingexam.com told me about it and I purchased three months immediately. It's what made the difference and I also learned a lot in the process! That's the point right?? So, Linton, all I can say is, counselingexam.com is the BEST way to get prepared and I will refer anyone that needs to prepare for the exam to you. Should I think of something in the future that could benefit you I will certainly send you a message. Thanks again for the great preparation. It make all the difference in the world. I want to share something spiritual with you. You know the inspiration messages you send everyday. The one about the meadowlark, thunder & lightening, star shining, a new life and then lastly the butterfly. Butterflies are very special to me. After I read the message, (it was the day before my exam) I said to myself, "I wish I could see a butterfly." Later in the day, I realized that it would not be possible to see a butterfly because they have all migrated for the winter. Then later in the day, I was downstairs, putting away the box of Gain detergent when I noticed a butterfly on the back of the box. It was at that moment I knew I would pass the exam and did not study anymore the rest of the day. When I went to take the exam, I wore a butterfly pin on the pocket of my jeans and every now and then would look down at it and say "please help me to pass." God made it happen. I really believe that. Take care Linton. Counselingexam.com was a very good experience. Danah

Thank you for the website. I took the test NHMC Friday and passed!!! Your site was very helpful. I have some suggestions. First, the practice tests were great, I took them over and over. You may want to tell people to not push the finish button to begin with, just to get a feel of the test, answer as much as you think are possible. Its defeating to contiually red fail and not get the green pass. I finally figured out I was too conservative with my answering and needed to check more. So, I stopped pushing the finish button and allowed myself to answer the maybes. I soon figured out what they test was looking for. I also created a diagram web for each case study, attempting to make the diagnosis first then adding more to the diagram web as I went along. I thought this would slow me down, but I found it kept me focused and clarified the diagnsois by allowing me to add up the symptoms. The actual test was tricky and filled with distractors, unrelated to the actual diagnosis. You may want to describe some distractors in the website. Its been 25 years since I took a counseling course, but I scored almost perfect on this test and I was the first one out the door! Many thanks!

Dr. Hutchinson, I took the NCMHCE yesterday October 15th in Sarasota. I passed with points to spare. Your website was invaluable in helping prepare me for this examination. I did your simulations repeatedly and studied the DSM IV TR for the past two months. The simulations are the key! Thanks again for all of your support. I will recommend your website to all of my colleagues. Best wishes.............and yahoo! Grant

Last Thursday, I passed the NCMHCE in the state of Indiana, on the first try! The website simulations and being strongly familiar with the DSM-IV did it! Frequently I would read the testimonials to inspire me, just waiting for my turn to say the same thing -- I PASSED!!!! Thanks again, Darlene

Hi, I know you get so many “thank you’s” from people that use your site to study for their exams, and I want to add one more. I would not have been prepared nearly as well without all the simulations, DSM case studies and other study and test prep material on your site. Knowing what to expect and to not read more into the simulations was key to passing the exam. I would not have been used to that without the simulations and practice exams on your site! Thank you.

No question here. I just wanted to say that I took my LCMHCE exam yesterday in Jacksonville, FL and passed!! I am soooo excited! I put most of my focus on the simulations.

Hi Linton, great news...I just passed the exam. I am both exhausted and ecstatic. I could not have done it without your program. I studied it relentlessly for months, along with other study materials. I also appreciate your generosity in this matter.

If you ever run out of testimonials, I'd be happy to do whatever I could. Jeff

No question...just GREAT news. Dr. Linton, thank you so much for your web sites. During this last week, I passed not only the NCE, but also the NCMHCE exams with flying colors. For the NCE, it was Dr Rosenthal and Linton teamed up together and I aced the exam with an extra 23 points to spare. With the NCMHCE, it was another home run. Let me know if you want more positive comments for your site.

Dearest Linton: I passed!!!!!! Oh my goodness! I had near-perfect scores in several areas and my overall Decision Making score (which I missed by 4 points last time) went up nearly 30 points! So while I did the studying, you provided the perfect vehicle (and a lot of inspiration!) for this dramatic increase and, most importantly, a passing score! Thank you so, so much! : ) Mindy

Hi Linton~ I can't thank you enough for your wonderful website. I just took the NCMHCE test today, and passed with flying colors on the first try!!! Although I experienced the typical "test anxiety", I felt so comfortable with the test format in the first few minutes, that I forgot about being nervous, and settled right in. Thank you again for all of the information on your website. I couldn't have done it without you. Ann (almost LMHC)

I just wanted you to know that when I contacted the state to reapply to take the NCMHCE, I was told that I had PASSED the last time I took the test! I was so convinced that I hadn't passed that I didn't read the right hand corner that said PASS and thought by the lower number score I hadn't passed. So for one whole month I was convinced I had to start all over. I want to thank you for your encouraging words and I have passed this web site to others. Thanks Again. Lisa

Take care, Eva from Miami

Dr. Hutchinson, I am not sure if you will get this email. I took the test for NCMHCE and it was my fourth try. I called and spoke to you of my failure only to find out that I read the scoring incorrectly and a month later the state licensure told me that I had passed. Talk about setting mysel up. At any rate I do want to thank you for your genuine support emotionally and educationally for I felt if I just stayed with your program I could pass and as rough as it seemed to be for me I finally did. I would ask of you and encourage you to offer refresher information for licensed counselors. I found that due to the poplulation I have I was and still am unfamiliar with the general population in regards to diagnosing and knowing the current psychological tests available for all mental disorders. At anyrate I would be one of your customers to keep myself current and refreshed to purchase online study just on principle. I would also encourage graduate students to utilize your resources for I hadn't any prep work for this licensure test. Please let me know if you decide to offer something along that line. Thank you again and I have passed your resource on to others as it was passed to me. Sincerely Lisa

THANK YOU Linton! I could kiss you. I studied with your site exclusively for one month, about one hour per day. I was disciplined to keep using your practice scenarios. I think I went through all of them. Sometimes I was frustrated; your site prepared me well. When it came time for the exam, Feb. 12, 2010, I passed WITH LOTS OF ROOM TO SPARE! My husband said I hit the ball out of the park. What a relief! It took me 13 years to get licensed. This was my final step! You have no idea how much your site helped me. I recommend it to EVERYONE! Big, big thanks!

Actually, it's just a comment. I passed my exam! If it were not for practicing and learning on this website, I'm not so sure I would have done so well and passed it the first time I took it. Actually, everyone I heard that took it said the test was murder! I thought it was a snap. I'm sure it was because of the format being so close to the format this website uses as a study tool. I just recommended the website to three other people. It's in there! Thanks for being the genius who put together this site! Nina

Also, the test taking strategies and techniques about coping with the anxiety leading up to and during the exam was very beneficial. Thank you SO much!! Judi from Chattanooga

Dr. Hutchinson, Thanks to my month-long subscription to your site, I passed the NCMHCE exam with 60 points to spare! I will highly recommend this service to my colleagues as I found it much more useful (and interesting!) to do the interactive case simulations than trying to get through thick study guides. My preparation paid off—the exam was not easy by any means, but I felt comfortable with the format and used your strategy of ranking the items by “Most Likely” to “Least Likely” and stopping my selections if an answer choice was “Not Indicated.” Thanks again for a wonderful resource! I’m thrilled to become an LPC!

I just wanted to thank you for your website and its contribution to my passing the NMHCE today! The simulations and reviews were extremely helpful and relevant and I found the exam to be even less challenging than many of the simulations.

Just wanted to thank you. I bought a three month subscription, got busy at work and completely procrastinated. A week before the exam I purchased another week and spent 3-4 hours per day cramming. In addition I reading through the study guide, I watched every video and took every simulation on the site. On the morning of the test I got up and left early because there was snow. The freeway was a solid sheet of ice and I sat at a stand still for 1:40. I called the test site and amp. They arranged for me to take the test even though I was approximately 40 minutes late. I got the 4 hour test and finished it in 2:10. I not only passed but just about blew the thing out of the water. This was puzzling because I expected the real test to be more difficult than the simulations on the site. Not so. The simulations totally prepared me to more than do well on the real thing. Thanks so much for the help. I was hired into a position that required a license and with your help, now I can keep it long term. Jeff

Hi Linton, I'm sure you get a ton of these, but I just wanted to say thank you. I passed my exam with flying colors. You have a great site and the cost of access was money well spent. At first I kind of sneered at your inspirational emails. But, as the exam got closer, my head grew more packed with info, and my stress level grew, they made a HUGE difference. You recharged my batteries more then once along the way. Thank you thank you thank you! Take good care, -Bob

Thank you!!!!!!!! Took the NCMHCE on Monday and passed. I had used another study guide (more expensive too) and still did not feel prepared even after 3 months of studying.

Hi Linton, I just wanted to tell you I used your website for both the LPC and LCPC-I passed both of them on the first try. I truely believe in your website and would not have passed without it. The simulations in particular were so helpful-not only to learn the material properly, but being able to familiarize myself with the format of the test alleviated a lot of anxiety for me. Your daily inspirations and reminders were an unexpected but very appreciated part of the experience. Thanks for doing what you do-I am spreading the word! It really was "all in there!" Rachel

Dear Dr. Linton, I passed. I believe my experience on line helped me greatly. It really prepared me in many areas especially the case studies. Yours were harder than the exam but the practice helped me as the simulations were comfortable since I had become use to doing it on line. It has been a great learning experience and improved my knowledge base extensively. Thanks. Sincerely, Char

I took the NCMHCE on 8/3/09 and scored very well. I think it would have been very difficult without having used your website. I found the practice exams helped shape my thinking toward that expected by the exam. Although apprehensive when I started, I found the practice exams made the test seem quite familiar. I have recommended it to several co-workers who are still in residency.

Just wanted to let you know that I took the LCPC exam for IL on July 11, 2009 and PASSED the first time. I was freaking out since I couldn't get into a workshop because I worried about not being able to grasp the test strategy. I'd like to let your users know that your site was so helpful that I passed with 39 points to spare (total combined between each section). I would recommend your users to complete EVERY simulation that you post as well as do the Abigail many times. I also downloaded your ebook and studied the DSM-IV. I work in a group practice and have a 3 year old and a crazy busy social life so I only seriously studied for 2 and a half weeks. I bought another study guide which was not worth the money, so your study guide is worth the price in terms of the material and how it helped with answering the questions to the simulations. I'd be happy to share with your users how I approached studying for this exam. I also subscribed to your site when I studied for the LPC a couple years ago and I passed that the first time as well. Many thanks to you and your team for creating such a wonderful site! Joy

Hello, Dr. Linton! Wanted to thank you for the site and tell you I effectively ‘smoked the NCMHCE exam like a cheap cigar’ with the help of counselingexam.com!! The simulations were right on and I felt confident during the test. I will certainly send all of my fellow colleagues to your site as they start the study process. Now off to enjoy a nice Cuban cigar in celebration. I think the greats of our profession would approve. Thanks again for all that you do!

Hi, Linton, Wanted to let you know I passed the NCMHCE today with a much higher than needed score. The material & simulations on your site were all I studied for this exam. So, THANKS! BTW, my exam was computerized. No marker, no moving from page to page. Just straight forward check the box. There was a history of the simulation aspect so I could look back and see the information from previous sections. I found that most helpful.

Linton, I PASSED! I did really good on the exam....I can't believe it. Thank you for the strategies. I took notes and solved each case study like a detective. :) I am reccomending the site to everyone......I think that practicing the simulations is the key to doing well on the exam. At first on the site, I was failing the simulations by a point or two, but then with practice after a week or so I was passing them. I already had all the nowledge necessary.....I just needed to brush up on my diagnosis and learn the strategies to aid my confidence in my test taking ability. Thank you. Christi

Hello Linton, I have been thinking about any insight I have gained after taking the exam twice, and thankfully passing on the second time. I really believe going over ALL the simulations, which total about 150, multiple times until I really understood every detail, really helped me a lot. The first time I gave myself a month before the exam to practice the simulated cases, which obviously was almost enough because I only missed passing by one point. The additional months studying the information and taking the practice tests really made the difference. I have to say I really know the cases and diagnoses like the back of my hand. I am so thrilled I passed. I recommended your website to two people I know who have recently registered. Thank you for all of your support. Jenny

Hi Linton. Good news... I PASSED the test this time. I guess the second time is the charm. I am convinced your website made all the difference. I recently recommended it to a friend, in West Palm Beach who recently signed up. I will certainly sing your praises. I will be happy to refer anyone who is planning to take the Mental Health exam. Thank you again, Jenny

Dr. Linton, I just wanted to give you a big, big thank you! I took my NCMHCE exam this morning and passed! I used your online prep site for a month (an hour or twos a day during the week, and 5-6 hours a day on the weekend). I passed by a lot! I felt really relaxed and confident when taking the test. Thanks again!!! I will definitely refer others to your site. Kara

Dr. Linton, I passed the NMHCE!!! I sat for it this morning. Thank you for your help on the telephone, the ebook, and the online prep course. I went from knowing pretty much nothing, being out of school for 10 years, to passing the exam - 86% on the IG (61% was passing) and 79% on the DM (71% was passing). I did a lot of studying in there - about 2 hours a day on average, some days more than that. But without your course I doubt I could have passed. I don't know if you like feedback about the prep course and/or what I remember from the actual test? If so, let me know and I'll prepare some stuff for you. Again, thank you, Elizabeth

Dr Linton You are the BOMB!!!!! It was all there!!!! I passed the LMHC Test and sincerely believe that the main reason for this success was due to your web site which did an excellent job drilling the concepts. As a matter of fact, I found the test less complicated in their simulations than the ones I had used from your web site. I will certainly pass on the good word to anyone interested in passing the test. Thanks again. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but I immediately took a vacation and just got back home.

Although I didn't have access to it until two days prior to my scheduled exam date, I tried to cram as much information as possible. I PASSED MY EXAM!!!!!

Thank you so much for inventing something so applicable to the test! I'm telling EVERYONE how beneficial your study material was for me. Not only was the on line practice simulations helpful, however, the test taking tips were of great value as well. While taking the test I did as you advised(TOOK A BREAK after 5 Simulations)" ~ After I took a break, I drank my water, ate my chocolate and was good to go! I will tell ANYONE, order your study guide, practice the on-line tutorial, and USE the wisdom to succeed that you have given in your instructions and THEY WILL PASS! Thank you again and God Bless!

Hi Linton, It's me again, this time saying Thank You for your continued attention to my many questions. I passed the exam today, with scores several numbers above the required passing grade (meaning it's not a fluke, I really did pass). I made a couple silly mistakes which I recognized immediately and otherwise did great. The simulations did it for me, getting comfortable with the way the test is designed and understanding where my weaknesses were. Like I told you before I took the test the first time cold turkey, and went in today far more prepared. Your site is well worth the expense. Nadine

You were more than a small part of my success in passing the test! I could never have done it without you. If truth be told, I know much more about the field now than I did before studying with your site. I am in the substance abuse field and therefore my experience is limited in some areas (such as working with children). Through studying on your site, I learned a great deal about case scenarios that I do not regularly encounter in my job.

Linton, You won't believe it, but I actually PASSED the LPC exam...I found out yesterday! I couldn't be more thrilled or surprised! Since Virginia requires that the scores go directly to the VA Board, I have not seen my exact scores yet, but will once I send them the fee for my licensure. In case you don't remember, I reallllly thought I had failed because I was unable (because of going to the wrong section) to complete 7 out of 9 pages of one simulation. I guess I must have done as well as I hoped on the other 9 simulations! I just wanted to let you know...and to thank you for your support and especially the website you created. Quite honestly, it was a fantastic tool in terms of preparing for the national exam. Thank you again...hope this makes sense as I've hardly slept! Have a great week...:) Harold

Dear Linton, Just a note to thank you so much for putting together the web site. I had a snowballs chance of passing the exam when I relocated to Massachusetts form NYC. I might as well have been from a different planet. My training was psychodynamic, i.e., Freud and British Object Relations. I wouldnt have known Reality Thereapy if it ate my lunch . . . and oh, did I mention: I'M AN ART THERAPIST!!! There was nothing on the exam that compared with my practice; I work at an agency which treats the chronically mentally ill - axis 2 and pschotic disorders . . . But Linton, you steered me in the right direction. I followed the instructions: studied for 3 months, at least an hour/day. I read the books, did the quizes and staggered through the simulations and I passed - not just squeaked by, but well in the comfort zone. So THANK YOU again and yes, I will recommend your website to all the other art therapists out there. Relieved that I dont have to do the hideous thing again, Caren

Hi Linton... What a surprise to hear back from you! Thank you. I certainly didn't expect a reply. I truly enjoyed taking the exam. I felt so prepared based on your materials. I think that format for an exam tests ones knowledges in such a more realistic way than the typical multiple choice or true false format. I felt extremely prepared for the exam going into it. After the exam, I felt that for whatever reason, the exam itself was easier than your simulation tests!

This message is for Dr. Linton and his supporting stuff. Though I have been in this country for many years my English is still my second language. I want to share with you my joy for passing the NCMHCE. You have being instrumental in helping me understand the fine nuances of the exam. I gues the first time I was not ready to pass it -only by a few points. I passed it the second time this year. Your generousity of allowing me to continue studying for the length of my subscription with no additional cost is very much appreciated. Money are as you know in short supply in this field!

Dear Dr. Hutchinson, et al: I just wanted to thank you for your awesome website. I purchased access to your site for 60 days because of my schedule. It was the best money I ever spent. The simulations were extremely helpful, and without them, I don’t know whether I would have passed the Florida State Mental Health exam. The DSM case studies really helped to tap the knowledge that was “in there” already and get it into my brain in an organized manner! Everything on the site was applicable. Taking the simulations became fun, and I was much less stressed for the exam. I took it with only two other people and heard a lot of clicking with the mouse and both left early. I don’t know about them, but I know I followed your recipe and not only passed but did extremely well. I can’t thank you enough! I will tell everyone I know preparing for this exam about your site!

Dear Linton. I passed the exam! I think your site help me much. It gave me a good idea of what the exam was about, it encouraged me to revise the DSM to complement topics, research assessment methods I had never heard off, etc. and helped me see my weak points. Thanks for the help provided.

I just wanted to let you know that I aced the exam this afternoon! Thankyou for your insight into how to take the NCMHCE exam as I finished it in just over an hour and passed easily. The key for me was to just do simulation after simulation on your website. I found that your sims were much harder than those on the test and that made it very smooth for me. Thanks again and I will continue to recommend your website to those taking this exam.

I just took my exam on Saturday. I don’t know how I did; the exam was long and difficult. I did exactly what you suggested, at the end of the 5th simulation I took some time to go, stretch, and drink some water. I went right back to work, and didn’t lift my head up until I finished. Let me tell you, I was seeing double by the time I finished. I want you to know that I found the simulations on the web site very very very valuable!!! I also found the inspirational emails, well inspirational. Thank you so much, those emails kept me going. As you must know by the end you begin to feel brain dead and like it’s just not worth it. However, those emails gave me that extra push to keep going. I loved the web site and will be recommending it to all of my friends. Thank you so much Beck

Dear Linton, I am writing to tell you I passed the exam! I took your course for a week before sitting for the exam in on January 21st. I do believe it was the ability to visit your site and take the practice tests, as well as studying all of the other information you provided, that really clinched the deal for me. Your daily emails were very helpful, as well. I was especially appreciative of the email you sent 3 days before the test which talked about the desire to trash the whole deal (and maybe move to the Bahamas). I had come in to work feeling just what you described, and felt enormously relieved to hear that it was normal. Thank you for providing such an encouraging and informative service. I'm sure there have been many before me, and will continue to be many after me, who will benefit greatly from your expertise. Blessings, Lynn

I took the NCMHCE in Florida on Jan. 22 and got the letter yesterday, result:  PASS!!!!!!! You were absolutely right about it being an extremely difficult exam; however, your prep course hit the test areas right on the mark.  I found the simulations and case studies extremely helpful and  practiced them over and over again.  I spoke with a few others who were retaking the exam for the second, third, and even fourth time!!  I recommended your course, and will continue to recommend it to others.

I know it has been almost one year since I took the exam but have referred several of my friends to your study site. Your site and daily emails really gave me the tools I needed to pass the exam. I went 2 days ahead of time to get my bearings, check out the room (glad I did because I almost froze working in the library the day before the exam, and travel time from my hotel. I took a bottle of water, just in case they would let me have it in the exam room (they did, if we left it on the floor until break), and took a power bar and of course a jacket and the paperwork needed to enter the exam. Your email about groups just a few days before the exam was right on time for me to look up what I needed to know for the exam as I hadn't studied for groups. I had been out of school for nine years so I really appreciated all your encouragement. Please tell your students that they really need to sit at their computer for the length of time they will have to do for the exam. My psychologist recommended this and it was a real eyeopener for me. I was able to sit for that length of time and was able to schedule my breaks at the times I needed them and didn't waste time worrying about them. This helped keep my anxiety down to a manageable level. Keep up the great work. Everything you gave me was very necessary. I was told that only 50% passed the exam here in Florida and I could see why, those 50% didn't study your exam guide! Thanks again, it was well worth the money spent, I did about 3 months of study with your guide. It was not too much and was concerned that I had not studied enough. I used all my relaxation techniques and positive thinking and prayer I could to keep positive for the exam. I did send for the study guide and marker for the exam from the exam company and that was really helpful as it is a very unusual exam. I knew what to do through the exam. The proctors don't know the exam, just the process of taking the exam. It made all the difference to have gone through the exam guide and use the marker. Thanks again, I am now a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. Deanna

Dr. Hutchinson: I just wanted to let you know that I passed my NCMHE exam recently, after taking the test the 2nd. time. The first time that I took the test I had studied on my own but really didn't know what to expect of the test and failed it. I took your study course and increased my score by over 50 points. I'm sure this sounds like an advertisement for your product but I really appreciated how your course was designed. The daily encouragement notes were very helpful, especially after failing the test the first time and being fearful of failing again. I found that your study material was more demanding than the actual test so that if a person will spend the time studying your material, they will be more than prepared for the actual test. Thank you, Welby

I have suggested the study site to several people, one who will be taking the test in January. I never wrote to let you know how much the site helped me prepare for the NCMHCE exam (due to extreme brain fatigue and burnout)! But, the information and style of practice that your site offers is very well done. As a matter of fact, it is the only study guide that I used. Keep up the good work and don't forget to remind people that this test is "different" to say the least. If I hadn't had practice with the style of the test, I doubt I would be writing you this letter today. Thanks so much. Casandra

I am a 2000 graduate from the Clinical Psychology program at UCF and I took the exam in January 2003 and passed with flying colors with the help of your website. It had been recommended to me by a friend and a result of my use, I recommended it to many of my colleagues who took the exam in June. I am happy to say that they all passed with flying colors. Your website is an excellent resource for the exam. The simulations were the most helpful, but I also found your test taking strategies helpful. I have never been one to need test taking strategies, but i found myself struggling with some of the simulations so I decided to give it a try. I can't tell you how much that helped me. For example, your pointers on reading the question and only answering what the test designers were asking and not necessarily what I would do in reality was the best. I really had to get "into the mind" of the test designers and that proved beneficial. Anyway, thanks for your help. Sincerely, Brad

Dr. Hutchinson, Thank you for your help in passing my exams. I enjoyed your website so much that I am telling my friends about it. I know that I was supposed to use other study material besides your website, but I can honestly say that your websites (both the NCE and NCMHCE study sites) were the only study material that I used and I passed both exams, the same weekend, with flying colors! This was after being out of school for over 2 years and spending about one solid hour per day on your websites (half hour each) for exactly one month. I guess I am bragging a little, but I never could have done it without your help! It's in there!!! Thanks, Kraig

Just wanted to drop a line to let you know I passed the exam on the first try!  I didn't just squeak by, either.  I passed with around an 86 or 87% overall.  I wanted to tell you that your site was very helpful to me in getting me familiar with the format of the exam.  I think if I had not been using your simulations, the ones on the exam might have made me uncomfortable.  For future exam takers, please pass along another study tip that I found useful....it's "old fashioned," but it really helped me.  I made index cards like flash cards for ALL the diagnoses in the DSM-IV.  By the time I studied those a few hundred times, I pretty well knew the DSM and had no trouble on the exam. Thanks again, Eileen

I am proud to report that you have another satisfied LPCC customer! I just got the results from my NCMHCE exam and I nailed it! Passing score on IG was 95... I scored a 119. Passing score on the DM was 117... I scored 132.

Ellen here. Just wanted to let you know that I passed!!!!!! (first time) Yipeee! Although I certainly didn't ace it, I did have plenty of room to spare to still pass. As I look back, I think doing loads of simulations and your sections that really forced me to go back to my DSM were the keys to success (and the earplugs, of course). Please pass that on to others. Thanks again for providing this service -- it's so much more fun to study your way! -- and for your accessibility and encouraging words.

Your program really helped me. It was the best $120. I ever spent. I did all the simulations and exercises one month leading up to the exam. Once I got to the end of the simulations I went over them again the week of the exam and definitely noticed an improvement in the number of simulations that I was getting correct. The program helped me to focus on what was being asked in the simulation instead of using all that I know. Using all that you know can cost you points as I was quick to learn.

Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know I took both the NCE and NCMHC exams on the same day and passed with flying colors. I used your website as part of my preparation for the NCMHCE exam. By doing the simulations you provide, I was able to bulid the skills necessary to pass the test. I highly recommend your website. Thanks!

I finally received my NCE and NCMHCE results from the April 15th tests here in Illinois. Thanks to you and your web site, as well as the two test prep classes I took, I passed both exams with flying colors. I feel ready and prepared to join a Professional Counseling Clinic near my home that has offered me a job. This extra money- on top of my school counselor job- will help me put my children through college. Thank you for your web site which encouraged and challenged me daily. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be prepared for these exams. Sincerely, Sue

Just wanted to let you know I passed the exam! I did your site daily for 2 months. I got the book by Siegle I believe the last name was. I did the NBCC sample inventory and I had my DSM-IV-TR in hand through out all my studies. AND, by the grace of God I passed. And, I passed comfortable, not just barely. So thank you for all the effort and work you put into the site. I will recommend it to anyone. It truly prepares you so comfortably for the test. Ear plugs, slow breathing, taking healthy breaks, reading in a whisper each question and answer ... all great help! Thanks again for what you do and how you helped me! Kori

Hi again Linton: I just sent an email but wanted to say more. I studied so hard. I worked 10 plus hours per day for the last two weeks. Your site made all the difference.

Dear Dr. Linton, I actually don't have a question for you, but I wanted to thank you for all your help. How can I get into the "people say" category to let everyone know what a positive experience I have had with your materials? I PASSED the NCMHCE exam the first time and am so excited! I really appreciate your e-mails of support. Please let me know what I can do to spread the word! Thanks!

Just a follow-up e-mail to let you know that I passed the NCMHCE with flying colors. I believe this is due in part to your website. I do have one criticism. I have signed on to your site in the past and was very put off by the number of spelling errors. It made me question the "professionalism" of the company running it and decided not to enroll. It was only after I met someone who had passed the test on the first try and "swore" by the helpfulness of your site that I decided to sign up. I am glad that I did of course and am recommending it to my colleagues who are now facing the exam but I have warned them already about the spelling errors.    Thank you so much.   Suzanne

I am happy to report to you that I received my NCMCHE results and I passed (the first time!)!!! I want to thank you for providing such a supportive and helpful website. Before having learned of www.CounselingExam.com I had purchased study materials from another exam prep provider. Although their written materials were helpful, it was your daily motivational e-mails and the down-to-earth style of your website that helped me to remain calm and focused as I prepared for the BIG & SCARY exam. Your support was more helpful then that of some of my friends and family who just didn't get what I was going through - so Thank You! I will definately refer future NCMECE-takers to your site. Take Care! Jody

Just wanted to check back today; got my results and I passed!!! I am so excited. Your online course helped me immensely, even though when I walked out of that test I was SURE that I had failed. Ironically, I think I felt that way because I had studied so hard I was aware of many that I messed up on (besides the message "not indicated"!) The simulations helped me; I did all of them many times; I also found the dissecting a case study very helpful. I got 131 out of possible 153 on information gathering and 124 out of possible 165 decision making. Thank-you again for the study materials and the encouraging e-mails throughout the process. Please use this as a recommendation for others, if you wish. Appreciatively, Carly

I would definitely and highly recommend your site to everyone out there. Mona

I am a Federal Civil Service worker and I just wanted to tell you all that I took my NCE in April 02 and passed with a score of 127 and my NCMHCE in October 02 with a IG score of 126 out of 152 (83%) and a DM score of 144 out of 180 (80%). I was so sure that I would fail - so sure that I decided to take each exam separately instead of together even though in the state of Illinois I only need a 65% to pass these exams. I would recommend this website to anyone applying for licensure. I don't think I could have passed without it, especially because I did not have a lot of the clinical coursework back when I graduated in 1989. Thanks - I'm shouting your praises all the way from Tennessee! Alicia

Dr. Hutchinson, Just a note to say "thanks" for getting me through the exam. I PASSED WITH FLYING COLORS! I was intimidated by the difficulty of the exam as it requires a different level of applying knowledge and synthesizing critical data. I admit that I was suspect in working off your web based module (fearing that I was not getting what I needed). However, your learning format got me thinking with the appropriate level of abstraction needed to pass the exam. It has been a long road, but your program helped to pave the way during the most necessary points. Thanks again. Jeff

I just got my NCMHCE scores for Virginia and I passed! I have to thank you again for the work you put into the review - especially the simulations - which allowed me to pass this exam on the first try - and with only 4 weeks notice that I'd be taking the clinical exam instead of the 200 question NCE! Keep up the good work! Karen

I received my results on Friday, and am happy to report that I passed the NCMHCE. I studied for the exam for about 11 months. All of the study was helpful, however your site made the difference for me. It brought all of the information that I had studied together, and helped me to develop a strategy for passing. I did the simulations over and over, and this was critical to passing. Thank you! Lexie

Dear Dr. Linton, Test results arrived Friday, 16 Aug and I passed. For the IG section there was a possible 168 pts with 110 pts required to pass, I had a 131; the DM section had a possible 165 points with 127 pts required to pass, I had 127. Thanks for your prep course, it helped me to focus on using the DSMIV in ways that I never had to in the daily practice at a residential center for adolescents. The differential diagnosis practice and the related treatment planning possibilities were invaluable. Also, the course helped to focus my questions toward the specific diagnosis, where as, working with kids and getting them to talk about anything helps to eventually lead to the area of concern. When I first started your prep course I would ask many things that weren't directly related to the diagnosis.

Just wanted to add my testimony to those posted on the website. I got my test results today and passed very comfortably.

Even after I took the exam, I extended my membership because I noticed such a sharpening of my diagnostic skills as a result of daily practice. Thanks so much for being a part of this success. Lisa

Just to let you know, "I PASSED" the VA LPC exam - Thanks, your web site helped greatly. I especially like the simulations and felt more confident as that was a large portion of the exam.

Whew, I passed the NCMHCE exam for Florida licensure in April 2002 with points to spare on what felt like a bear of a test. I want to thank you for your website as it was a tremendous help to this veteran school counselor who did not know nor use the DSMIV diagnoses before beginning to study 2 months before the test. I also used Linda Seligman's book on treatments and did take a workshop. I felt well prepared until I saw the test when I nearly panicked, but came through fine. Thanks again. Cindy

Linton, I want to thank you for providing such a useful tool in studying for the exam. I took the test yesterday and feel I did well, but the proof will be when I receive notice of a positive score. Your site provided much needed stimulation as I became deconditioned and stale as I repeated the information to myself. Your programs almost became an addiction and I used the various sections almost as a game after a while. I bet you I will suffer from withdrawal for a time because I truly had fun. Anyway, thanks again and I will let you know if I passed in June. Sincerely, Lisa

Wow. My head hurts though not any worse than my neck. And I can't see. Ok...so much for complaints. Thank you. Really, thank you. Your site was worth every penny...and then some. Yep...shoulda, coulda, woulda; didn't. The simulations are worth their weight in gold as is the DSM work. Missed a few - had a few "no..try again". It's not you but me that needs improvement. At any rate, thank you so very much. I'll recommend you to everyone. Cheryl

I got my results in the mail today. I passed with a total average of 82% The passing score was around 65%. Your course and Linda Seigleman's book made it possible!!! I couldn't imagine taking that test without the preparation your course provided. I'm a very visual learner and your course helped in the way that books and tapes could not. Since this test is so unique, it is so helpful to practice the mechanics of taking it. You are the only one that offers that!! Thanks again for the extra few days you gave me on your site prior to the test. Please feel free to share my comments.

I wanted to thank you for your service and your suggestions of other materials to study. Beat the cut-off for IG by 41 points and DM by only 2..SEgilman's book and the practice questions really helped this old guy get back into the way the test developers think and bring me up on the DSM-IV. I love the supporting e-mails in the final weeks becuase they made me feel you knew truly what we were ging through. You must not be doing it only for the money--especially when I consider what the materials and workshops that I am using for the EPPP in the spring. thanks Tom

Dear DR. Hutchinson: I would like to thank you for your wonderful web site! Needless to say, I passed my NBCC Licensure examination with flying colors (85%). Your simulations were both relvant and a valuable study tool and I have since recommended you to my intern-collegues. I found your review both intriguing and informative as well as a more than adequate preparation for the examination. It was, without doubt, the BEST $20 I've spent! Why spend hundreds of dollars on foolish review courses. Your review has it all. I will spread the news from the mountaintops! A+++++++ in my book. Thank you and keep up the good work!

You had asked for feedback on your sites helpfulness with the exam and I wanted to provide some but frankly I wanted to wait until I received the results of the exam incase I just had a false sense of security after taking it. I felt as if I had passed it right away. Your site was the most useful and the most cost efficient means I had to study. I bought expensive study guides and attended an expensive course but it really did little in the way of preparing me. I just continued to do the scenarios and I strongly feel that is what helped me the most. It really gave me a good working feeling of the test and when I went in there it was basically just like logging on to the site only a little more intense. I passed, and I did great on it. Thanks. The e-mails I received also helped as I felt I had a friend and support. Pass on my feedback. Michele

Dear Dr. L. Hutchinson, I want to thank you for such a valuable service you are providing. I just received word that I PASSED the Virginia LPC exam. I had been out of school and in practice for 12 years so I was nervous about taking it. When I started taking the practice exams provided by Virginia and your service, I failed most of them. So I crammed for two months and did every one of your case examples (52 of them , I think) over and over until I became comfortable with the process and got good scores. The passing grade on the Virginia exam was 75 - I got an 88! Many thanks for enabling me to be well-prepared! Deborah

Hello Dr. Linton Hutchinson, My name is Lynn and I subscribed to your site for the April 21, 2001 NCMHCE exam. I only subscribed for a few weeks and I must say that I felt good going into the exam.

Dear Linton, I just want to say thanks so much for making your fabulous resource available to those of us preparing for licensure. I subscribed to your website for three months prior to taking the Virginia Licensed Professional Counselor exam on April 21, 2001. I am convinced that your site, along with Dr. Andrew Helwig's Study Guide, enabled me to pass with flying colors the first time out of the gate. I am no spring chicken...it has been nearly 20 years since I entered graduate school in counseling, and because I had a full-time job in an unrelated field, it took me 10 years to acquire the 4000 hours of clinical experience I needed to sit for the exam. Needless to say, I had a great deal riding on a passing score. I found your site pertinent, comprehensive and interesting...not to mention the e-mails which were especially helpful. Thanks so much for being there! Eleanor

Thank you for your online service and your encouraging words. I just took the test today, for licensure as a professional counselor. After I decided to take it, I only had three weeks to study seriously. I've been out of school for about a year and-a-half,and have been thinking of taking this test for several years,now, since a couple of years before I even enrolled in graduate school. Your online study program helped me a lot, and for that I thank you.

Your site was extremely useful. It helped me connect with my "in there" knowledge and consolidate what I've been studying these past few weeks. That was critical because circumstances made it impossible for me to stick to my original three-month study plan.

I thought your simulations were very detailed and that was good because it made me know the information backwards and forwards. Often I did not know the right answer but I knew three of the four answers and could eliminate and pick easier
