California LMFT Clinical Exam: 30-Day Study Plan

The California LMFT Clinical Exam covers a broad scope of knowledge. To be fully prepared, you need to hold that knowledge -- and also be able to apply critical test-taking and anxiety management skills.

Ben Caldwell presentation

Our California LMFT Clinical Exam prep program can help you do exactly that. Our video-based lectures, focused quizzes, mock exams with full rationales, exclusive Think Like the Test™ video on test-taking skills, and more are designed to give you thorough and well-rounded preparedness for your licensing exam.

Our program is organized into modules for easy learning. Most people can complete the full course in a total of 50-60 hours. Here, we've divided the program into a 30-day study plan, but you can expand or condense this to fit your needs. As I often say, the only bad study plan is one that doesn't work for you.

Here is your 30-day study plan. Our video-based program includes more than 400 practice questions with complete rationales, our exclusive Think Like the Test segment, and much more, all at the lowest cost among competing programs. You can start immediately when you register.

Total times here include video segments and brief topic-focused quizzes. Of course, individual time needs will vary.
