Hi Rob,
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful course I took with you back in October. I just received the results from the exam I took on Nov. 2nd and I PASSED!!!! After being away from grad school for more than 10 years I was skeptical about my abilities to do well but it was your comprehensive review that made it possible.

Thank you again,

Rob, I still am of the mind that the exam was ridiculous. It was not what I would consider a difficult test. A difficult test uses the material you expect to be on it, but may present it in a way you didn’t imagine. Yet, you know there’s a sound connection with what was on the test and what you were assigned to study. Note that there were only 3 – 4 compare and contrast questions on my test. That in itself was a shocker. What was even more shocking then that was how no effort was put into discovering what the test taker actually knew. All of the focus was on how they could trick you into choosing the wrong question.
All that being said, I’m incredibly thankful that I passed and am grateful to you for teaching me whatever it took for me to pass the darn thing. I honestly am not exactly sure what that was, but it obviously worked. I did pass.
Yet, I am disappointed and a bit resentful about the extent to which the test is a joke Taking that test was a horrible experience and I’m so incredibly glad it’s over. Studying for the test, on the other hand, was a great experience. I learned a lot and remain grateful for your study material and guidance along the way. I’ll be a better clinician, as a result. I truly do not think there’s a program out there that’s better then yours as far as organization and presentation. However, I am perplexed as to how a program could really prepare someone for the way the examiners attempt to trick you. As I told you, I’ve never felt so defeated after taking a test when I began by walking into the testing room feeling confident, prepared and with no doubt that I would pass. Again, so so glad I passed. I just feel for the people who studied hard and failed an unfair, absurdly stupid test.
Tell us how you really feel, Deb… ha! Ok.. I needed that rant! Wishing you a great holiday, Rob. You’re a fabulous teacher and an inspiration to me in many ways. Thanks for your patience and willingness to help whenever I got stuck and I did often! Take good care, Deborah K., LMFT

Dear Rob and Faculty:

I just wanted to take a moment to share with you the good news that I just learned that I passed the MFT Licensing exam!

I didn’t really start using the book until a week or so before I took the exam, but, fyi, the information in it was what I saw a lot of on the exam, esp. concerning the latest research material. I’ll keep the book as I begin my internship to refer to often, I’m sure.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Rob,

Rob, Thanks so much for all your help and the wonderful materials. I passed the Massachusetts MFT exam on the first try! I’m a terrible test taker and your material really prepared me for the exam. I’m so thankful I don’t have to take it twice.

Thanks for all your help!

Hi Mr. Guise,
I’m so excited to tell you that I just got word from the NC board that I passed the LMFT exam! I know without a doubt I couldn’t have done it without your program. I am the one that went through my coursework and supervision 9 years ago!!! I felt like I was going through a Master Class when I watched the videos, went through the online modules, and studied the information in the study guide. I took your advice every step of the way with reading the recommended books, watching the Masters on youtube, and making a study sheet for me based on the timeline as well as the books they wrote. I don’t know how high my score was yet, but I am so excited that I passed. Considering all the time that’s passed from when I first studied all of this information until now, I’m in disbelief that I passed. I know I couldn’t have done it without your program and all the great guidance, thanks so much!!! Angela C.

Hello Michael and FSI,

As you had mentioned an interest in following-up the outcomes of the AMFTRB exam (Oct-Nov), the passing score was posted as 67%. My score was 91%.

I can truly say that the study materials and particularly the workshop were helpful in orienting me to the nature of this unusual examination. This aided me in preparation for the examination.

The last time I took an MFT exam was in 1986, when Florida was using its own State exam. It was indeed an awkward space to be in 2013, taking an MFT exam next to those recently graduated from MFT programs. But, perhaps in the interim there have only been small changes to the cadre of approaches to marriage and family therapy.

So, thank you for your work and efforts. In my view you had a material effect upon my results.

Best wishes in the warmer climes!

Greetings Rob
I was in your training in Austin. First, I would like a copy of your power point. Second, I just want you to know how very pleased I was/am with the training. Your expertise is matched only by your honesty. As someone who has done family therapy for years (and has been successful in a number of different venues) I think you should be teaching at a major university. I think having you as a supervisor would be exceptionally good, not to mention having you as a professor.
The training was clearly money well spent. Thanks.

Hi Rob,

I wanted to post this on the website but got locked out of it right after the exam on September 7th. North Carolina just sent word that I passed the MFT exam with a score of 179, which is the highest score in NC, and close to the highest national score of 185. No doubt this is due to spending time with the review materials you provided. I found the big green book, DVDs, and HIPAA section invaluable in preparing for this exam. The outcome research section was helpful as well, and the test questions prepared me for how to take the exam and how to take the time to think through specific questions.

Most of the exam topics were pretty much what I had come to expect thanks to your practice exams, with the exception of several same-sex couple questions which had been covered in depth in my masters program in California. ūüôā

Thank you again very, very greatly for all your assistance and for making products that are easy to understand and implement. There is no doubt in my mind that without the FSI materials I would not have gotten such a high score.

Many thanks, Debbie G., LMFT

Good Evening Mr. Guise:

I just wanted to thank you for all that you do in helping people prepare for the Marriage and Family Therapy licensing exam. I purchased several of your programs materials, including the dvd’s, cd’s, model worksheets, and study guide. As a result of these study resources I managed to pass the licensing exam the first time! This is an accomplishment for me because I have a learning disability when it comes to memorizing material. However, your program allowed me the ability to go over and over the material thus, retain it. The virtual workshop DVD’s were the biggest help for me because you put the material in context which allowed me to understand it better.

Thank you again.

Sincerely,

Aron L., LMFT
