Very well. A significant number of TSM Members pass on their first attempt. New members who had failed the EPPP prior to using TSM experience a 110-point improvement in their EPPP score after studying with our method. Consistently, our members' practice exam scores and their actual EPPP scores are only 3 or 4 points apart…no surprises when you use TSM!
Dr. Taylor and his colleagues at TSM have assisted thousands of candidates in preparing for and passing their EPPP over the last 25+ years. Now we look forward to being part of the most important EPPP success story of all - yours!
Our content is the result of over 25+ years of research and development with contributions by over 40 professors and content experts, such as Dr. Steven Hinshaw, Chair, previous UC Berkeley's Department of Psychology and previous editor of Psychological Bulletin (the most quoted professional journal in the field of psychology). Dr. Hinshaw helped us ensure that TSM's curriculum is accurate and professional. We also partnered with Dr. Roberta Nutt, past director for the ASPPB (the Association that writes the EPPP) to ensure that TSM's curriculum would contain the information relevant to the EPPP. All that said, we know our curriculum is relevant and our Method works because a significant number of those who utilize TSM pass the EPPP on their first attempt.
We are committed to making EPPP preparation accessible to everyone. Subscription-based membership allows the ultimate flexibility and affordability for our members without needing to pick and choose the particular components they think they may need.
More reasons than we can name in this short space, but here are a few:
Although some have done it in a month, and others have taken 6 months, the average member subscribes for approximately 4 months. Because everyone's schedule is unique, having a month-to-month subscription allows you to customize your study time.
Unlike all other TSM exams that you will be presented with during your membership, the Initial Assessment Exam is not a study tool, but rather a way for us to establish your baseline score and to customize your study sessions. Therefore, you will not be provided answers or rationales on this exam.
No. Everything you need to study and prepare for the EPPP is available online through your subscription.
No. All you need has been organized and distilled down into the 160, 1-hour study sessions, which make up the heart of the Taylor Study Method.
You certainly have every right to study how you choose, but we highly recommend studying the domains and study sessions in the order they are presented, according to your level of content mastery that was identified through your Initial Assessment Exam. This is what makes the Method customized.
