Testimonials & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5

My exam was yesterday and I passed on the first try! I had listened to all the workshops you had available and attended two tutoring sessions. When the exam first started, I was very nervous, but immediately felt reassured because I realized how prepared I was when I started going through the sims. I ended up guessing incorrectly 2-3 times and immediately stopped clicking, and heard Bart’s voice in my head telling me to stop guessing!! :)) Took two breaks, one halfway through and another one after the 8th sim. I took deep breaths between each sim and it helped me remain calm and focused.
If it weren’t for your workshops and counseling exam, there’s no way I would have passed! I’m so thankful for all the knowledge you shared and how easy you made it for us to remember things. I wanted to also thank Nicole because she was SO responsive whenever I needed something and I got amazing bundle deals! I recommend both your site and counseling exam to all my colleagues and friends. I hope the info I shared will be helpful to others who are studying for the exam.

Barton and Team are AMAZING. I have terrible test anxiety and love to worry. With the help of Barton I went into the test knowing I was going to pass. AND DID PASS ! ! ! It’s like Barton wrote the DSM. If you have just started studying and stumble on this review THIS IS YOUR SIGN (lol) use Barton. He will help you to understand information gathering and decision making like the back of your hand. He will explain in such a way that you will no longer make the mistakes you are making. He is the TRUTH. People often ask where should I start, start with, take some tests and see how you feel. Notice where and what you are missing/where you are making mistakes. Following, take the Barton workshop to help you with that area. Read all the hand outs Barton gives you (They are like the Blueprint) !! After take his personal tutoring to cement what you are missing, you’ll be able to talk to him and get all your questions answered! He will shape your understanding. This is not just a journey to take a test; this is the journey to start your future. The straightest line between where you are now and passing the test is BARTON BOTT!! Good Luck Fellow Counselor, you are on the right path!!!

Barton’s workshops and study guides were a major factor in passing the NCMHCE. I am an exhausted working dad (full time with two young children) and several years out of school. I failed the exam several times on my own. After taking his workshops and studying his hints and suggestions, I finally passed the exam. Barton’s soft wit and relatable approach made understanding DSM-5 diagnoses and the Decision Making section of the exam 100 times easier. Thank you Barton Bott and your amazing team for all of your help! Your workshops were worth every penny and more.
