Dr. Rosenthal became a friend to Ginger from afar to help her score high

 

I’m writing to say thank you for creating such fabulous materials.  I took the NCE on December 13 and passed with a score of 127.  I listened to your CDs and also purchased the Encyclopedia of Counseling.  I have recommended your materials to all my friends who are preparing for the NCE.  I feel like your book was easy to read and I liked listening to your voice in the car.  I actually felt like you were my friend and after I passed the NCE I was sad that I didn’t hear your voice any longer.  Maybe you will write a novel one day and record an audio version.  I would certainly buy it!  Best wishes to you!

Ekow Scores an Amazing 135 Even Though His Graduate Program in Ghana, West Africa Did Not Cover All the Exam Areas!

 

Hi Dr. Rosenthal,
I want to say thank you for your study package. I graduated from a university in Ghana, West Africa so there were some CACREP areas that I did not learn in school, areas like Professional Ethics and Social Foundations.  Your materials really helped in my preparation for the NCE.  I listened to the audio several times at work and while driving since April, 2014. I also read the encyclopedia almost from cover to cover while supplementing with other practice test resources online.

On the eve of my exams I listened to the boot camp and test anxiety sections to relax.
Out of 160 questions, with a passing score of 93, I snared a great score 135 putting me in the 84th percentile.

Thank you.

140 out of 160 on the exam: High Scores on the NCE never get old!

 

Dr. Rosenthal,

I used the VALEDICTORIAN MASTERY TOOL KIT to prepare for my NCE… I just got my results back and I received a 140 out of 160 and only needed a 93 to pass! The mean was a 113! Your prep tools definitely prepared me well! Don’t know what I would have done without you beside me every step of the way!

Thanks again!

Alfred insists the Rosenthal Materials are the Holy Grail for CPCE Counseling Exam Preparation!

 

A bit skeptical at first, but...

Ok, Doc, I admit that I was a bit skeptical of the “Purple Book” But let me tell ya, I studied that thing over and over for about 2 months to the point where I actually memorized all of the items. I mean all of them! Here’s the crazy part; almost every question I studied in the “Purple Book,” in some form or another, appeared on the CPCE. Now, I am by no means a great student because I have a family and work two jobs. I even thought I had no chance to pass the CPCE and it was not a joke despite what other students say. Would you believe I scored a 100 out of a possible 136? I didn’t believe it either! I paired your “Purple Book” with your CDs and studied hard, listening to your CDs on the way to my job and on the way to my testing site in Virginia. And for an added bonus, I paired your materials with a one month membership to counselingexam.com. Your book is so easy to read and understand. It really is folksy with loads of memorization shortcuts and analogies. It’s written in plain, every day language that even a layman like me can understand it. Plus, the CDs are easy to listen to and really complimented the book. Doc, without the Lord and your materials, I would have been lost and would have needed to take the CPCE again. But that’s over and I will use your materials AGAIN! to prepare for the NCMHCE or the NCE, undoubtedly. Thank you for understanding the needs of counseling students and making “The Holy Grail of Counseling Preparation”.

After failures: The purple book allows Amanda to live out her dream as a counselor!

 

Hello, from Houston, Texas! I'm Amanda and want to thank-you so much for writing the Encyclopedia of Counseling. I had failed the NCE two prior times, all the while letting the "purple and white" big book collect dust. I failed the test twice by two points. Well, the third time taking the test I decided to study different, dusting off the book and studied every inch of it. I really thought I didn't have a chance at passing. Indeed, I ended up passing AND increased my score by TWELVE points! What helped me the most were the explanations in your paragraphs following the questions. Thanks to you, I can live out my dream as a counselor and never have to take the test again.

CPCE Success: Rosenthal materials were the best investment Korrie ever made!

 

Dearest Dr. Rosenthal,
I promised myself as I was studying your wonderful materials toward my goal to pass CPCE, that if I passed I would write to you to express my gratitude. As of yesterday, the results were conclusive and I passed! I purchased your entire kit that included the Encyclopedia of Counseling book, the audio Cd's and Human Resources Dictionary. It was the BEST investment I ever made! Each of these materials was necessary for me to study according to my learning style. I listened to the Cd's while in the car running errands and while putting on my make up each day. I used the dictionary to clarify terms and of course, the encyclopedia made difficult material easier to understand and fun to read. The question/answer design was critical in my personal success and I encountered some additional information in your materials that I had not previously learned throughout three years of graduate study.


I also truly appreciate your sense of humor throughout the pages and on audio, and your encouragement made me want to keep listening and reading. I thank you sincerely!!!


Regards,

Korrie A. Conners

9 Year old son wants to listen to Dr. Rosenthal. Rosenthal’s humor helps Kevin pass the NCE with 34 points to spare!

 

Dr. Rosenthal,
I received my MS in counseling psychology in 2002.  Since then I have put off taking the NCE and obtaining my state licence partly out of fear.  I have been working with children and families for over 15 years.  A recent promotion caused me to have to address this fear or loose the job.  I utilized your audio program and Encyclopedia of Counseling as my prep materials and listened so often that my 9-year-old son would ask me to turn on Dr. Rosenthal when we were driving.  I was afraid this morning when I took the NCE.  I passed!!!!  My score was 34 points higher than then score I needed.  Thank you for your humor and knowledge.  It helped me complete an important and scary task.

Dear Dr. Rosenthal,

Below is a testimonial that you may use, and a follow up question for you...  This comes from the heart, so thank you a million times for your work on these study guides.

First, let me say that I purchased your Valedictorian Mastery Tool Kit in 2010 and used it to study for my Comprehensive Exams for my Master's in Mental Health Counseling.  At the time, I worked at a job where I did alot of traveling so the CD set was a tremendous help in preparing me for the exam.  I listened to each disk on my ride to and from my work site, and at night I would spend about 1/2 hour reviewing the questions in the book.  I reviewed the disk on statistics several times, as that seems to be an area that I was most challenged in.  After listening to it for several hours over several days, it finally started to sink in.  Your methods of explanation really did make sense to me, and it helped, more than I learned, even in my class.

A night or two before the exam, I listened to the last minute super boot camp and again on the road driving to my exam.  When I arrived, another student was anxiously studying note cards telling me that she had stayed awake all night trying to study.  She would look at one of her study cards, and then ask me if I knew the answer (for example, the dates that each therapy technique was developed).  I then became a little anxious as I hadn't remembered any of those topics from your study materials.  I realized that her anxiety was rubbing off on me, and that I was as prepared as I could be for that particular day.  I walked away from her, and found a quiet place to myself, telling myself that if I didn't pass, I would just take it again, and utilize your money back guarantee (LOL).  After the exam, it was hard to know how well I did, but when I got the results a few weeks later, I was excited to know that I had not only passed the exam, but I had scored the highest of all those who had taken the exam on the same day.  What a relief to know that your study guide really did help me so much!!  I would recommend the Valedictorian Mastery ToolKit to anyone needing to study for the CPCE exam to complete their Master's degree.  A million thanks to you Dr. Rosenthal and your study guides.  I know I couldn't have done it without you.  Please feel free to share my story on your website, and I would be happy to have any prospective test takers contact me if they need reassurance about your program.

Sincerely,

Lisa B.

Dr. Rosenthal,


I used your Encyclopedia and audio CDs to study for my counseling comps and the NCE.  I am ecstatic to announce that I passed both of my exams on the first attempt!!!! Not only did I pass them, but I scored the highest score on both exams within my program! Everyone in my program asked what I did to study. Your book and CDs made studying so much easier and made remembering all of the information possible.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this up hill battle much easier to accomplish.

Would you believe 140 out of a possible 160?

 

Dr. Rosenthal,

Thank you for creating easy-to-use study guides. I listened to the CD's any time I was driving for an hour or more.    I used the "anti-anxiety" CD a few times the week before and on the eve and morning of the test.  I found the testing experience to be very relaxed.  I was surprised at how easy I found most of the questions.

I scored 140 out of 160!
I received my masters back in 1982 and only recently started taking the additional coursework for licensure.  Your materials helped to give me the confidence to finally tackle the NCE.

Thank you.

Carmen says Rosenthal has the edge over a competitor

 

Dr. Rosenthal GOOD Morning!!!  I passed my exam with flying colors it was so easy........& I will give you most of the credit!!!

I bought your CD's & your Encyclopedia book. Your material was right on point and to the level of detail I needed.  In fact some of the questions were exactly how you predicted verbatim.....(keep that quiet).

Your Cd's did it for me.  Your friendly positive, happy voice, that sometimes I would listen too just to feel better.    I did do the relaxation & I thought.... yeah right.... but it did help....loved the boot camp CD with the quick info...as well.

In the last week before the test a friend gave me their outline from your competitors to look at.....it was 700 pages & I went through it all!!! Horror of horrors.....& stressor of stressors...... & it was totally a mind & time waster....just more hype for them so you buy their material ......they make it harder than it needs to be.... getting into material way way to deep & no supportive positive words so what it did was ..... to create more stress .......

And so I went back to your material.....more is not often better.  I realized I was way way over prepared during the exam.......more hype than anything else..    Thank you for being such a great teacher.....

Your material has a much better pulse on the level needed and of the questions on the test than your competitors........tried and true .......you might say, but its all you need to pass!!!

Your voice is stuck in my head...:)

A million thanks.

With gratitude,

Using Dr. Rosenthal’s materials to pass in ten days

 

Dr. Rosenthal,

My story may be a new one for you. I just recently purchased your study set after wanting to get it for many months. I am a graduate student with Liberty University's online program. Unfortunately this past September I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in my neck just a few weeks after starting my internship. As you could imagine the emotional strain on myself and my wife was only matched by our financial struggles as I found my self disabled at 45. Well God blessed us with the extra money to purchase your program just a few months ago. Just a few weeks after receiving it and admitting that I didn't even crack the seal on the CD's I was offered an opportunity to take my exit exam early. The catch? I only had 10 days to study. I spent as much time as I could the next 10 days listening to the CD's while at the same time going thru the book. I took the test two weeks ago tomorrow and I just received the news today that I passed and with much room to spare. You really gave me an added does of confidence and I just wanted to thank you. Due to my cancer I am putting off my PhD for some time, but when I am cleared want to get right to work. I live in Florida and they require the national exam as a requirement for getting a licence along with 2 years of supervision. Thanks to you I plan on taking the national exam in the fall, just to get it done as I know I will pass with ease. Thank you again and if you are ever in the Wets Palm Beach area I would love to thank you in person.

ESL counselor reviews for exam with “my dear friend Howard.”

 

Dr. Rosenthal:

I want to testify how grateful I am. Last October I took NBCC exam in San Juan, PR. The group was around 150, and only 38 passed. I'm one of the few. I used your Dictionary, Encyclopedia and CD’s. Graduated in ’07, I decided finally to take the exam four years later.

When I was doing my daily exercise routine, I listened to your audio program .

The day of the exam was a difficult one. Was a conference room full of people, from recently graduated and others taking for 2nd time. Why I waited so long? I thought I wasn’t prepared for the exam and I have a some personal issues I need to straighten up first.

Your review gave me enough confidence to go for it. The questions are presented in the same way as the Encyclopedia. I took some time of my work, and spend most of the time listening your CD’s.

When I hit the week before the exam, one friend called me and I said “ I’m reviewing for my exam with my dear friend Howard,” she laugh a lot!

I'm a Puerto Riccan, born and raised in the island. English is my second language, but using your books helped me a lot. Now I have to work for the 500 hours, in order to finish the state licensing process.

Thanks for your help! Next year, I’m going back to school to pursue my PhD.

Learns materials never covered in master’s degree program

 

Hello Dr. Rosenthal:

I am happy and "proud" to report that I passed the NCE exam on 11/18/11.  I believe the reason is largely due to your book: The Encyclopedia of Counseling and your CD's.  Your book is an easy, enjoyable read, which covers the materials necessary to pass this challenging exam!  I also learned materials which were never covered in my Master's Degree program, e.g. school counseling, and numerous theorists I never heard of prior to reading your book and listening to your audio program, nearly everyday, to and from work.  With the CD's, I never felt that my 2 hour drive (both ways) was ever a waste of time...it became an opportunity to refresh my memory and learn even more!

Thank you again, Dr. Rosenthal.

“Thanks for caring to be of service to people like me.”

 

Hello Dr. Rosenthal,

My name is Jacqueline Gordon.  I graduated with my Masters degree in 2004.

Dr. Rosenthal I began listening to your CDs in July 2010 (on and off) - more off because I was so afraid of the exam.  However, in January 2011, I began to get busy and read the Encyclopedia and listen to the CDs diligently.  I would listen to the CDs in my car, home and while I slept at night.  I read the Enclyclopedia, I took notes, I worked really really hard.

I passed the exam on May 13, 2011 thanks to your material.  Thank you so much for all of your help and your support for me during this process.  I am an older woman who still has a goal to become a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and thanks to you I can walk with my head up, stick my chest out and feel absolutely proud of myself because I followed your formula.  You are a God send.  I will continue to tell everyone of my process and how your material helped me in my career.

Again, thank you for caring enough about this profession to be of service to people like me.

Jacqueline Gordon

  Hello Dr. Rosenthal, My name is Jacqueline Gordon.  I graduated with my Masters degree in 2004. Dr. Rosenthal I began listening to your CDs in July 2010 (on and off) - more off because I was so afraid of the exam.  However, in January 2011, I began to get busy and read the Encyclopedia and listen to the CDs diligently.  I would listen to the CDs in my car, home and while I slept at night.  I read the Enclyclopedia, I took notes, I worked really really hard. I passed the exam on May 13, 2011 thanks to your material.  Thank you so much for all of your help and your support for me during this process.  I am an older woman who still has a goal to become a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and thanks to you I can walk with my head up, stick my chest out and feel absolutely proud of myself because I followed your formula.  You are a God send.  I will continue to tell everyone of my process and how your material helped me in my career. Again, thank you for caring enough about this profession to be of service to people like me.

Counselor from Costa Rica thanks God’s grace and the Encyclopedia for her success!

 

Dr. Rosenthal,

I received the NCE results today and I passed!!
Me, a two weeks graduate student from Webster University of SC, 41 years old
immigrant from Costa Rica and English as Second Language...I couldn't do it
without:
1. God's grace
2. Your book

It was the best I could do...thank you so much for it!! for your hours of
research and patience to put it all together...thank you for making it easier,
specially for someone with still English barriers...I had a blast reading it, I
found out myself laughing many times and many of the concepts I didn't get at
school you made it simple for me to understand...my score wasn't that bad
....mainly I didn't have to take extra time (accommodations) or the test in
Spanish.

Again...Hope God continuing blessing you for blessing us!!

How Megan combined Rosenthal program with Linton Hutchinson’s online study guide for an awesome high score!

 

Dr. Rosenthal,

I just got back from passing the NCE and I wanted to thank you for
the materials you've created.  I bought the purple book and the audio
CD set and I found both to be incredibly helpful in my preparation.
When I was commuting an hour to and from work each day I would pop in
a CD and I would actually feel productive and calm rather than angry
about being stuck in the car.

Your soothing voice, test taking tips and strategies, cheesy jokes,
and your famous memory devices all made studying much more enjoyable
than just reading from a dry book would have been.  I will definitely
recommend your materials (along with www.counselingexam.com for
practice tests) to my friends and colleagues who haven't taken the
exam yet.

By the way, the minimum passing score for my version of the test was
91/160 and I got a whopping 135/160...so I'm obviously pleased with
the materials I used to study from!!!!

Thanks again!

“You made studying fun!”

 

Hi Dr. Rosenthal,

My name is Linda Boudreaux and I am from Louisiana.  I purchased your Encyclopedia of Counseling book not knowing what a treasure it would be.  Several people began to mention your book and someone told me about your audio program so I purchased it as well.  I was determined to pass the very first time because of so much study!  After much prayer and much study, I passed for the very first time!  Needless to say how happy and how free I feel after many months of study.

I enjoyed both the book and the audio program.  You made studying fun and I was able to understand concepts that I feared I would have trouble with such as statistics.  I just had to take some time to let you know that I passed and to say thank you for your book, The Encyclopedia of Counseling and your audio program.

Sincerely,

Attention counselors: Format was very user-friendly, and the style easy to work with

 

Dr. Rosenthal:

I purchased your Valedictorian Mastery Tool Kit after looking around the 'net and I was skeptical there was anything that could jar the memory of this 58 year old mind. I didn't take a college course until I was 37. I washed out of pharmacy and ended up in mortuary science. I was unhappy there and ended up in counseling (where I belong). I listened to your CDs, read the encyclopedia, scanned through the dictionary, scheduled the test, and passed rather easily, the first time. Your materials were spot on regarding the questions I encountered. The format was very user friendly, and the style was easy to work with, even the corny jokes. Good job! I will recommend you highly!

How the Encyclopedia turned a Spring Break in Mexico into a world-class learning experience! And we’ve got the photo to prove it!!!

 



Greetings Dr. Rosenthal! I thought I'd share with you some fun I had with my class last March-I was the subject of several jabs for taking your book with me on Spring Break to Mexico. Here I am pictured reading your book in front of the huge Marlin that is at the Manzanillo water front. My studious ways paid off-as I passed the NCE with flying colors! Yours was the only material I studied, and I'm just glad it was available. Just for laughs, I might listen to one of your audio CDs once in awhile to recall those splendid days! Thanks again. You gotta love it!!

Best Regards

Actual exam score indicates questions in the Encyclopedia of Counseling are statistically accurate

 

Dr. Rosenthal:

I am writing to thank you for the Encyclopedia of Counseling.  I purchased a copy to prepare for the NCE.  A colleague loaned me the audio CD’s and I listened to all of the content parts as well.  I had planned to study with a group of my fellow students, but because of the way your book was done, with all questions, I decided to study alone and do each question as if it was a test.  I covered up the answer for each one and wrote down the answer.  I kept track and scored myself as I was going along.  Granted some of the questions were ‘gimmees’ because 2-3 questions in a row were the same, but I averaged 83.7% correct over the course of the 1050 questions.

On the exam I scored 134, which is 83.75%.  For me, your text was an incredibly accurate indicator of my performance on the exam.  I have to tell you though, my confidence level was like a roller coaster as I progressed through the book.  I would get 10-12 correct in a row and start feeling really good about myself.

Not knowing what I needed to score going into the test made me a little nervous, but you state in the book that approximately the 60-70% mark is passing, so I felt good about my chances.  I have a 4.0 GPA in my graduate program, and my undergrad cumulative GPA was 3.97/4.0, so I am a good student.  I hoped that my academic preparation and your book would get me through it and it did!!

I went back to school in 2001 at age 41 and have gotten an AA in Liberal Arts, BA in Psychology, and will complete my MA in Counseling this August.  Passing this exam has made it all worthwhile.

Keep doing what you are doing to assist counselors to pass this exam.

Thanks again.  Please feel free to use any of my comments in your promotional materials.

Graduating grandmother gets a boost from Dr. Rosenthal’s Test Anxiety Prevention/Relaxation Audio CD!

 

Dr. Rosenthal,

I received your CD’s and Encyclopedia of Counseling last summer, knowing I needed to study for the CPCE and pass before receiving my master’s degree in Marriage & Family Therapy. Life was (and still is) very hectic, as then I was completing my coursework while doing my practicum/internship and working a part time job to make ends meet. It wasn’t until I had a set date to take the exam in December that I started listening to your CD’s on the way back and forth to the internship in November.  I figured that this test in December would be a trial run, and did not in any way expect to pass it. My thoughts were that the worst case scenario would be that I would take it again in the Spring, just in time for graduation, but I’d know more of what I needed to study for. I barely finished listening to the main CD’s the week before and THEN listened to the boot camp, then the relaxation CD (which I wish I would have done first!).
As you have probably already guessed, I passed the first time! There is no way I would have done so well without your CD’s and with my experience in a public mental health practicum/internship (I had 16 of 18 correct in the helping area). I have to prepare for the NCE in the next few months, and will definitely be going though the CD’s again.  I did pass! Not too bad for a 50 year old Grandmother just finishing her degree. I can’t thank you enough for your materials.

Tom scores 127 with limited study time! 94 was passing! Wonders how high he could have scored with additional exam prep time.

 

Dear Dr. Rosenthal,

I wanted to take a moment to let you know how the Encyclopedia of Counseling and your CDs helped me easily pass the NCE here in Chicago.  I have to admit, I did not spend as much time with your materials as I should have, yet I passed the NCE with a score of 127 (passing grade was 94).  Who knows how well I could have done had I started my study process a few weeks sooner!

Being in the final semester of my counseling internship, I was also required to recently take a Departmental Proficiency Examination as a requirement for graduation.  For some reason, I got the dates confused in my mind and found that the test was being given about three weeks sooner than I had anticipated (a "senior moment," I suppose).  I didn't see the error of my ways until about three days before the test.  Now what do I do??  I spent those days listening to the "Boot Camp" CD while driving to and from work, and in spare moments.  I sat for the test and am very pleased (and relieved) to report that I also passed my Departmental exam with no problem.

Thanks once again for providing THE BEST tool for preparing for these exams.

Sincerely,

Dave rips NCE with mega-high score of 141 and insists Dr. Rosenthal is the man!

 

Hey Dr Rosenthal,

You are the Man! No really, You are The Man!

I am a guy who has been out of graduate school for 14 years. Over the past 5 years, I actually had to take 5 additional courses in order to sit for the NCE. I ordered your Audio CD's and received the Encyclopedia of Counseling 15th Anniversary Edition  as a gift from a friend. From late August to October I listened to your CD's on the way to work and back and read the encyclopedia of counseling cover to cover twice. I used the Boot Camp review and the Relaxation CD as well.

All my life I have been a very average standardized test taker. My SAT and GRE's were right at the 50th percentile. I made good grades in school but somehow I always seemed to crash on big standardized exams. NOT THIS TIME!!!

After using your materials and following your instructions, I ripped a score of 141 out of 160 on the NCE. I am talking a Z score of ++2.0, and a boost to my confidence that words cannot explain. I honestly could not believe my score when the proctor handed it to me. It took me a minute to understand what had just happened. I had blown the roof off the exam!!! Me...An older average guy with grey hair and a son in college. I cannot thank you enough for your program. The audio learning and review question CD's and the well written encyclopedia were not only entertaining but the organized material, mnemonic devices and humor made my study experience a joy!

Again Dr. Rosenthal You are the Man!!!

Dr. Rosenthal’s funny materials have made Elizabeth quite possibly the happiest person on the planet!

 

Good Morning Dr. Rosenthal,

I am probably the happiest person on the planet right now.  Not too long ago, in June to be precise, I wrote to you about the Mastery kit for the NCE.  I received the material quite alright but was unable to start studying.  I postponed my exam.  I will not say I spent 2 months studying for the exam, In fact, I believe if I calculate the total amount of weeks I spent studying the materials it will probably be about 3 weeks.
Your encyclopedia is precise, easy to read, funny at times (I chuckled out loud a lot that my family wondered what was going on with me).  I would like to have you as professor any day, even my husband said so.  The audio sessions were superb.  What can I really say that you don't already know about your program?  I say all these to say that I took the NCE yesterday, and I passed.  I was so happy that I started crying.  If I had your number, I would have called you from the exam. center yesterday.  THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AND I PRAY THAT GOD WILL CONTINUE TO REWARD YOUR EFFORTS AS YOU ASSIST RISING COUNSELORS AS MYSELF.  THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU.

WITH MUCH GRATITUDE,

Ginger insists Rosenthal’s explanations are possibly superior to a $1000 EPPP Program!!!

 

Dear Dr. Rosenthal,

You are a very modest man. On your website you state that at best your program would be a supplement for a psychology grad studying for the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP). I'm writing to say that I did not understand the explanations in the learning theory section of my EPPP study guides. I say study guides plural, because I have two of them for the EPPP. One of them alone set me back over $1000.00. Panic was beginning to set in. Luckily, a friend at my health club who is studying to be a counselor told me about your audio program. I kid you not when I say that your explanations were flat out better and way easier to comprehend than the lectures in either of those high price tag EPPP programs. What surprised me the most was that you even covered a huge chunk of information they left out and certainly your presentations are more interesting. And yes, the memory devices on classical conditioning worked for me!

Ryan “kills” the NCE with a 138 out of 160 with less than a month study time!

 

Hi Dr. Rosenthal,

I studied with your CDs and book for about 6 to 8 hours a week for a little less than one month and passed the NCE here in Chicago on Friday with a score of 138/160. Nationally, the latest statistics show the highest scores to be around 125. The passing score on my exam was 99. In other words, I killed it!

More importantly, I have been out of graduate school for more than 2 years and have not been employed in a position requiring the regular usage or awareness of counseling  or psychological terminology. In fact, much of what I learned in school seemed like a distant memory but your CDs quickly brought a lot of that information back.

Thank you for your materials, they really are the best!

Hi Dr. Rosenthal,

I contacted you a few weeks ago re: your CPCE study CDs. I took your advice, ordered the CDs, listened to every single one within the week.....and received the 2nd highest score in my school (NYU). The person who came in first was the friend who recommended the CDs to me. Thanks!

We really enjoyed the lessons. Miss listening to you!
Thanks again,

Graduated 30 years ago . . . no problem . . . Rosenthal NCE study materials right on target.

 

Dr. Rosenthal,

This past Saturday I received notification that I had passed the NCE in order to become a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia.  I was so excited because I thought that I had failed the exam.  Your CD's and Encyclopedia of Counseling were responsible for me passing.  I completed my Masters in Counseling 30 years ago and returned to the counseling field only 3 years ago.   Your study materials for the NCE were right on target.   Thanks again.

Dear Dr. Rosenthal,

I just took the NCE and passed last week. Thank you for your wonderful study guide. I don't think I would have passed without it. I listened to your CDs and read through the Encyclopedia of Counseling book. You really helped me not be too nervous for the test, and I actually enjoyed studying for it!

Thank you.

Blake praises Rosenthal’s upbeat style and exclusive test hints for a score of 136!

 

Hi Dr. Rosenthal,

Just a note from a successful satisfied customer.  I passed! (136/160)   I really felt prepared and actually did enjoy listening to your audio program and reading the encyclopedia. Appreciated your “test hints” and your upbeat style.  I only wish you had a similar program to help me prepare for the EPPP. The ones I’ve heard are pretty boring.

Regards,

Hello Dr. Rosenthal,

I am writing from Chickasha, Oklahoma. I am a Professional School Counselor who has been in the LPC process for almost three years now. I started studying about 1 1/2 years ago. I have taken the NCE 4 times prior to getting the CDs and going online to the counselingexam.com website. I scored a 78 prior to reading and listening to your wonderful CDs and reading the  "Encyclopedia of Counseling." After this happened I scored a 94 but the cut was 99 so I said keep studying and I just took the NCE for the 5th time and I PASSED. I was SO EXCITED. If any one reads this and thinks that persistence does not pay then they need to get your materials prior to taking the NCE or any other EXAM. I feel WITHOUT A DOUBT that I would not have PASSED THE NCE if I did not have your materials. THANK YOU for the great materials. It is my hope that ALL studying for the NCE get your materials NOW.

One Grateful Customer,

Valedictorian Program is well organized and makes the material enjoyable and less stressful

 

Dear Dr. Howard:

Last May I purchased the Valedictorian Master Course to prepare for the NBCC National Counselor Examination. I recently took the exam and am pleased to report that I passed with 32 points above the minimum passing score. The CD program and Enclyclopedia of Counseling were my primary study sources and provided an excellent source of material that covered all aspects of the NCE examination. I highly recommend the Valedictorian Master Course for anyone planning to take the NCE examination. The material is well organized, covers all essential aspects of the subjects to be tested, and makes studying and learning the material enjoyable and less stressful.

Dr. Howard Rosenthal’s products live up to their claims . . . fabulous!

 

Hi Dr. Rosenthal,

Your products live up to the claims. Thank you so much for the fabulous products you have developed that make studying for the NCE a much less daunting task.  I used your CD's, Encyclopedia and Dictionary to study for the NCE which I took in April. I passed with a high score and felt very well prepared for the exam. Your CD's are so engaging that it makes learning the material fun and easy. Your books are also very well designed to enhance learning and retention.

A classmate purchased another well-known NCE Prep program that contained a large manual but no CD's.  I had planned to study from her manual one weekend, but it was so boring and confusing that I put it aside feeling confident that I had a better test prep product.

I've recommended your NCE test prep system to several people and think your products are also great to use while taking classes. Thanks again for the time and thought you put in to developing a highly effective test prep program.

With a smile,

More fan mail and tears of joy: Drives auto with no destination just to listen to Dr. R’s audio CDs!

 

Dear Dr. Rosenthal:

The moment has finally come when I can send this email to you. I am, at last, one of the many, many others who have used your material (Encyclopedia of Counseling, along with your CD's) to study for the National Counselor Exam who can say: I PASSED!!!

Thank you so much; I couldn't have done it without you. Your book was informative, friendly and fun. I will miss driving back and forth to work, listening to your CD's. (OK. I admit it; I drove my car even when I had no destination, just to listen to your audios!)

The exam was much more grueling than I'd imagined, even though I entered the testing site telling everyone that I would be getting 160 questions correct. NOT!! Phew! Who WRITES those questions?!

Anyway, after much crying---from joy--last night, I had to sit down and send this fan letter to you.

Thanks a mill.

Questions in materials build upon each other to promote success and enhance morale

Dear Dr. Rosenthal,

Well, I'll temporarily dispense with humility and exclaim to you,
I PASSED THE NATIONAL COUNSELOR EXAMINATION AND THE MARYLAND STATE LAW TEST (April 21st administration)!
I just received the results today, opening the envelope with a pounding heart and trembling hands!

I feel so grateful to you for writing and producing the study guide materials  and the audio discs and for doing so in such an organized and affirming manner. The way your questions build upon each other and promote success had kept up my morale and study pace.

....
Again, thank you so much for your role in my achievement,

Hello Dr. Rosenthal

I just passed the NCE exam and I wanted to say thank you for your incredible book "The Encyclopedia of Counseling" and your CD collection.

I will recommend your work to all of my fellow graduates and students at the Community and Rehabilitation Counseling Program at Ohio University in Athens. Please, if you would like, use my name in your testimonials.

How a 71 year old counselor (who has been out of school for over 20 years) passes on her first try!

 

I know you get letters like this all the time.  But I am so happy, I had to write and thank you.  I am 71 years old, and out of school over 20 years and guess what…..

I PASSED MY TEST ON MY FIRST TRY.

Need help with COMPS? Steve believes Dr. Rosenthal’s humor and insight can help.

 

Dr. R,

I received your book and CD's late last year and took
my exam a month ago.

You guessed it!  I passed AND I can safely say your
Encyclopedia and CD's help me do it!!

I am telling everyone to get your book and CD's if
they want to pass the COMPS.  Plus, your humor and
insight made the reading interesting and almost fun!

Dr. Rosenthal:

I just wanted to thank you so much for your CD package. I listened to
all the discs four times over four months and took the NCE. Today I
found out I passed. It has been over 25 years since I have been in grad
school and your CD's were invaluable. I would listen to them on the way
to work every day. My family felt they knew you as I they would hear:
'Hi, this is Dr. Howard Rosenthal' on a regular basis. Thank you so
much for making this second career come true in my life!

Rates Rosenthal material content as “much stronger than graduate program.”

 

I just wanted to say a big "THANK YOU" for your audio program and Encyclopedia. They were the only prep materials I used and I PASSED the NCE the first try! I finished grad school nine years ago (this is my second career - I'm 61 years old).  I will  recommend your materials to everyone. I could not have passed the exam without your materials. The content was much stronger than my graduate program! Thank you!

Tillie wanted to be my next testimonial and now she is!

 

Dear Dr. Rosenthal:

I want to personally thank you for helping me pass the NCE. Your audio and encyclopedia for counselors is the greatest material I have ever used to prep for any exam. I was administered the test 22 July. I listened to your audio from April thru July and it really does work and it was worth every dime. You were the first thing I heard in the morning and the last thing before going to bed, in fact, when I finally listened to music it was strange. I wanted to be your next testimonial and thanks to you, I have obtained that goal.

The Rosenthal materials emphasize simplicity and are thorough . . . Mary Jane passes with 30 points to spare!

 

I am just writing to say thank you for helping me to pass my NCE exam to
become a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas.   I had previously
failed my first attempt to pass the Texas LPC exam in 2003 and since then
have been afraid to take the new NCE exam for fear of failing a second
time.  After going through another study course twice in the last three
years, I needed a change and a new approach. Your Encyclopedia of
Counseling book and audio series was just the thing I needed.  While the other
study course was very thorough, I needed the simplicity that your course
offered and I passed with 30 points to spare! Thank you again for helping me to
achieve my dream!

Frank has some great advice: Don’t confuse the Rosenthal audio CDs with old boring prep materials!

 

Dear Dr. Rosenthal:

I want to offer my heartfelt thanks for the work you have done with your NCE study materials.  I was skeptical at first of using study aids, (remembering old boring prep books for the GRE).  But I was amazed at the wealth of information in your Encyclopedia of Counseling. Also the CD's were very helpful even though I am more of a visual learner than an auditory learner.  My wife, who is a Pharmacist, listened to some of the CD's with me and remarked how funny you are and how clear you are in your presentation of information.  I really believe your materials along with  www.counselingexam.com  were the main reasons I passed the NCE on the first try.

Thanks again, and I hope your birds, that were on one of the CD's, pass the test soon as well!!

Follow your dreams!

Rosenthal wins in grad student’s unofficial CPCE prep survey!

 

Hello Dr. Rosenthal,

I hope you won't think we are obsessive, but my girlfriends and I did kind of an informal study on CPCE preparation programs. Blame it on our research courses if you must. Anyway, all eight of us pitched in and purchased all of the major books, videos, flash cards, and programs we could find.  Although all the programs had some positive aspects, every single one of us picked your Encyclopedia of Counseling (the so-called Purple Book) and your Vital Information and Review Questions Audio Program(often referred to by students as the listen and learn CDs) were the clear winners.  Now I know from reading your website that a lot of students have praised the quality of your products, but few mention the fact that they are a bargain. The Purple Book  -- at under $60 -- has a lot more information than competitive books.   ________  advertises his book that costs more than yours, in the counseling magazines, but unless you already know an awful lot about the material, we felt he doesn't give you enough information to pass the real exam. We felt the same was true of the text recently released one by __________. Your Encyclopedia of Counseling  has more information than some of the complete programs we purchased costing over $300.00.  We ought to know; we paid our money to buy them and compare them.

Please keep up the fine work you are doing. I can tell you that the graduate counseling students do appreciate your contributions.  I only wish I had actually had you as a professor for a class.  You have a real gift for teaching.

Gloria views Dr. Howard Rosenthal as angelic! Exam prep had her laughing!

 

Dr. Rosenthal;
you are an angel! Thank you so much for your help. You became part of my life for five months. After a while you were my friend, a mentor, or like my father chastising me to rest if I was tired, sending me to drink (nonalcoholic, of course) after the Boot Camp. I could go on for all the times you had me cracking up, laughing because of your comments and memory devices. What I'm trying to say is I'm so happy I do not know what to say THANK YOU . . . THANK YOU . . . THANK YOU.  I did not pass the first the first time. I had a boring, long and tedious study guide that obviously did not help.  I do believe your book and audio programs were the key to my success.

Adjunct faculty member and private practitioner says Rosenthal’s book Before You See Your First Client is in a class of its own!

 

This is a fabulous book, a must-have for people in the helping professions! Dr. Rosenthal has demonstrated insight and understanding into real-life situations that are not found in current textbooks. This book is in a class of its own in regards to its relevance and is exceedingly helpful in clinical practice.

Rosenthal Program Beats The Competitor

 

Dear Dr. Rosenthal,
Regarding your material. I'm not apt to swearing but holy s***!!! your cd's are amazing! I've tried other study material, which got me around the 60% (pre test). I recently sat the exam and got 15% over what was required. I listened to all the cd's about 7 times and went through the book 2 and half times. I have bad anxiety around tests. Within the first cd, I was so confident that I would pass. It felt so good! Thank you so much!!!!!
Blessings to you and all that you do!!!

Cristina Thanks Dr. R for being the NCE prep guide rockstar!

Hi Dr. Rosenthal,

I PASSED MY NCE YESTERDAY using your materials! Woohoo! It was my first attempt! I graduated recently (December 2016), and my program incorporated a lot of the information relevant for the exam (lucky me, it was a good program), but there was also a lot of specific information that I was not familiar with. As I was taking the exam, I realized how incredibly relevant your ENTIRE prep package was (Encyclopedia plus CDs) to the exam. After going through your materials twice in a row and taking the NCE, I am 100% convinced that the only study materials one needs are yours. I felt confident, but I also found the exam difficult, and there were many moments during the exam I thought I was even going to fail, but it turns out I even passed with what I think is a good score (127/160).

Thank you for being the NCE prep guide ROCKSTAR!
