“I wanted to let you know how grateful I am for the help of the counselor exams study guide. I passed my NCMHCE with flying colors and I truly have this study guide and online simulations to thank! I was able to really target the material that I needed a refresher on but also affirm the things that I was doing right. I have told all of my friends that are preparing for the exam that this is the best. I will also continue to reference the material covered in this study guide throughout my career!”

Sherese Ezelle

“I used the 37 scenario package and I passed on my first try. In my view, I did not have to put in an inordinate amount of time and effort into studying because number one, I did have my foundation down already, and two, this course helped me to see how the test operated. Without that information, I think I would have failed. The course familiarizes one with the format, teaches one to not do "too much" in the scenarios and certainly not to make random guesses, and third, the course helps one to familiarize oneself with various testing instruments. (At least I knew some names to look up.) I felt that the course made studying very palatable, considering I was under stress already and I did not have a lot of extra time and energy for this. I would recommend this course.”

Amy

“I passed with flying colors, no small part due to the preparation I received from both the study guide and particularly the scenarios. I would highly recommend using this program to all who seek to pass this exam. Thanks!”

M.R.

“Without Dr. Arthur's course and materials there was no way that I would pass one of the most important exams of my career. The sheer variety of practice scenarios and information included in the booklet give you all that you need to get a real feel for how the NCMHCE is presented and the information that you need to know to pass. Additionally Dr. Arthur makes himself available to you personally via phone and email and I cannot say enough about him as a person. He is kind, generous and very much wants to see people succeed. When I called him to tell him I passed he was elated and said that my scores were some of the highest he has ever seen. Great praise for someone who was freaking out days before the exam!”

Cyrus N.

“Dr. Arthur, I just wanted to thank you and let you know that I passed my licensing exam on Friday. Your tutorial program is absolutely the best study program on the market. I really enjoyed talking with you this past week and the tips you provided boosted both my morale and my score! Thanks again for this great review program!”

D. Kent

“Great study course that prepped me within three months. The study supplement is so informative that I'll be keeping it on my library shelf as a reference. The scenarios, I believe, were the greatest asset with built-in tutorials. I can see now why Dr. Arthur provides a money-back guarantee. If you complete the scenarios and reference the supplement, you WILL pass! (And not just by the skin of your teeth.)”

Olivia

“I just wanted to thank all you for the support and such thorough testing software. I just took my NCMHCE today and I passed. I know that the details and the team support I received as well as the follow through with the questions I asked Dr. Arthur; are one of the many reason I was successful today. Thank You”

Jasmin

“Thank you so much, Dr. Arthur! On 12/12/2013 I passed the NCMHCE exam on the first attempt using Dr. Arthur's study program. The online practice scenarios were priceless. The program is affordable and the study guide provides a wealth of information that I will continue to use in my practice as a source of valuable information.”

Roxanne Miller

“I wanted to let you know that I passed the NCMHCE for the first time last Friday. I used several study materials but feel your materials were the best and most closely approximated the actual exam. I felt my money was well spent on the Arthur-Brende study materials. I will recommend these materials to others who study for the exam. The study materials that summarized diagnoses with symptoms, typical assessments, appropriate treatments and differential diagnoses were especially helpful.”

Donna B.

“I want to thank you for your great customer service and support. I passed! The scenarios were especially helpful, and I was very pleased with the package overall. A very good use of my money - it was worth it! I will recommend your program to my peers.”

Debbie M.

“I am a licensed professional and have taken lots of other exams. The NCMHCE is by far the most difficult exam I have taken. If it wasn't for your material and excellent assistance, I would not have passed my NCMHCE exam and received my state license. Other study material sites are not as professional or helpful as yours.”

S. Winkelmann

“I did pass my exam on the first try and I attribute that to your study materials. I will refer your site to other colleagues who are planning to take this exam. I found both the simulations and the accompanying hand book very helpful.”

T. Kirsimae

“The online [scenarios] were exactly what I needed. I needed lots of repetition of just doing the exam over and over so that I could understand what they were looking for. I took the NCMHCE the first time without your materials and failed. I took it the second time after studying a lot with your materials, any my scores went up over 25 points. Your materials significantly helped.”

Jeremy Rampton, LCPC

“I want to thank you for how brilliantly you developed your study guide materials. I took the licensing exam yesterday for Mental Health & passed. Your guide was instrumental in allowing me to get a grasp on the structure & content of exam. I'm confident that because of your guide I passed the exam with flying colors! Thank you again for making this guide such a valuable resource.”

Rosy C. Landa

“I passed the NCMHCE today! I scored 30 points over the minimum passing score in information gathering and 15 points over the minimum passing score in decision making. Your website, the practice scenarios, the study guide, and the phone consultation were absolutely invaluable. I do not believe I would have passed without them!! Thank you!”

V. Schmidt

“Thanks again for your support. The [consultation] phone call was invaluable. And I am most certainly recommending your study guide/online scenarios for friends of mine also studying for the exam.”

Chris Sloane

“After failing to pass the NCMHCE last year, I took your course. I knew my problems were with HOW to take the exam. I found your study guide and practice scenarios to be just the ticket to improve my understanding of the exam structure. I'm happy to report that I passed the NCMHCE today!”

Sandra Wiggins

“I'm excited to report that I passed the NCMHCE! Taking the practice scenarios helped me to understand more about appropriate information gathering and decision making. The first time I took the NCMHCE I failed the decision making portion and knew I needed more practice and was referred to CounselorExams. Thank you!”

Meagan K.

“Just wanted to say that I PASSED the NCMHCE today and I have your scenarios to thank for it! I will recommend them to others.”

M. Welch

“I just received word that I passed the NCMHCE! I previously took the test twice and failed twice. I had studied with another company's materials. I just did not understand what they were asking me to do. But by studying with your scenarios, I was able to see the pattern, understand the structure of the test and apply all the knowledge I had. Your examples and explanations of your scoring made it clear why some choices were not acceptable. Thanks for your wonderful web site and your personal service. It made all the difference and I went in feeling completely confident. I passed both sections with 30 more points than I actually needed!”

Jane Pitts

“This is awesome! I don't need to carry around the binder version and I can easily access the eBook while I'm relaxing in bed doing night time reading before sleeping-- in other words, it's awesome that it's so accessible! Thank you!”

J. Cho

“Just wanted to let you all know that I took the NCMHCE today... and passed on my first attempt. Your full package of scenarios was VERY helpful in preparing for the exam. In fact, they were more difficult...which made the test seem relatively easy in comparison. Thanks again... and have a good holiday season.”

Dr. Joe Cusumano

“I can't imagine taking the licensure exam without having used the Arthur-Brende NCMHCE Scenario Simulator materials to study. I highly recommend it to others preparing for the NCMHCE!”

Mindy Parsons

“Your customer service ranks among the best I have ever experienced and please know I will continue to advocate your services to all peers and mentorees.”

A. Campbell

“I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU because the materials helped so much and I passed my test the first time taking it. The scenarios were so similar to the ones provided and possibly even a little harder, which made me feel extra confident during the actual exam.”

Sara F.

“I am recommending the Arthur-Brende NCMHCE Scenario Simulator to everyone. It was like the actual exam, and very thorough.”

Debra Fitzgerald

“Dr. Arthur, I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that I passed the exam today. Thank you very much for your scenarios and for the time that you gave me on the phone. Your advice was very helpful in approaching the exam. There were a few scenarios on there that didn't get much focus in your simulations, but there were others that I was more confident with due to what I learned in the simulations, and I was able to use the test-taking strategies we discussed to get through the ones I was somewhat uncertain on.”
