Here are the just some of the reasons why customers love our CA law and ethics exam prep:

  • Video format. We have more video content than any program we know. Whether you learn best by reading or by listening, you're set with us. We have more than 10 hours of video lectures, geared to efficiently guide you through key knowledge for your law and ethics exam.
  • Taught by a leading MFT educator and advocate. Dr. Ben Caldwell is a licensed MFT specializing in couple therapy, has been teaching California MFTs at the graduate level for more than 15 years, and has fought and won many battles on behalf of MFTs with the BBS and the California Legislature. There are few people in the state with deeper knowledge of the field.
  • A better price. It's that simple: We built a great product, and we charge a lot less for it than some of our competitors. It's because we're mission-driven here: We're not just selling you a product, we're fighting for you. 
  • Organized based on the BBS Exam Plan so you know what to study for -- and there's nothing here you don't.
  • Available anywhere you're online. Our browser-based platform works on desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile, anytime you're connected to the internet. (System requirements apply.)
  • Practice questions with rationales. We currently have two full-length law and ethics mock exams and one 25-item mini-mock, as well as shorter quizzes. In total, there are almost 200 practice questions in this program.
  • With you until you pass. Initial course access is set to 120 days, but if you change your test date or otherwise need an extension, let us know.
