The TherapyEd book was my primary resource when studying for the NBCOT exam, and I passed on my first try.  My advice: Read the content in the book, then take each exam, then review all of possible answers and the rationale of why they were correct/wrong.  Once you've finished this process for each exam, repeat the process again as you will not only learn the content, but how to clinically reason during the exam.  Good luck!
