Associate Marriage and Family Therapists (AMFTs) in California need to take the state's MFT Law and Ethics Exam in their first year of registration. This study guide is designed to efficiently prepare you for the California MFT Law & Ethics Exam.

Our guide is fully updated to the new CAMFT Code of Ethics, which the BBS has reported will be integrated into the Law and Ethics Exam as of July 2020. It features more than 100 practice questions with rationales, including a full-length (75-question) practice test. 35 practice questions are new to this edition.

It is focused squarely on the information you need to know for the test. It includes test-taking tips and strategies. And the study guide section addresses each and every one of the 121 areas of knowledge the BBS uses when developing the exam itself. The study guide is newly reorganized in the same structure as the exam plan, so you can focus in on those areas most emphasized on the exam itself.

By using this book, you can go into your exam confident and well-prepared.
