Social Work Exam Prep Overview

Every year more than 20,000 social workers around the country take either the LCSW exam or the LMSW exam. The exam is administered by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) and using an ASWB exam prep program is essential, as most social workers lack exposure to the range of topics tested on the LCSW exam and the LMSW exam. Our Social Work Exam Prep programs are the only programs created by social workers who have passed the LCSW and LMSW exams with a passing score of 90% or higher. Many social workers come to us after failing their social work exams using other social work test prep programs - and then pass their ASWB exam with confidence after participating in our online study programs!

In addition to the ASWB exam prep programs, we also successfully prepare California social workers to pass the California Law and Ethics Exam administered by the BBS.

Check out a recent review from Ashley Mullica, who passed using our LCSW Exam Prep: "This was the only study system I used to prep for the LCSW exam. I found it to be very well organized, concise, and easy to follow. I was not surprised by anything on the test and felt well prepared. One of the things I appreciated most about the program was the access to coaches. I was lucky enough to work with Bethany who was extremely knowledgeable and always answered my questions very promptly. There honestly isn't a thing I would change with the program and I know it helped me pass with flying colors with a 91%!  I would highly recommend this study guide to anyone looking to pass the ASWB CLINICAL exam!"

Check out a recent review from Lauren Kushnir, who passed using our LMSW Exam Prep: "I took the LMSW exam a few years ago under duress and did not pass. Pushed by my employer, I went for it again but knew I needed a good LMSW exam study guide... I began with a boot camp in the NY Metro area - but they were only interested in handing out books and obtaining $$. Then I used AATBS recommended by peers - but their content style and books made me feel like I was incompetent. I tried LEAP CD's but drifted listening to them.  Then by chance, I found the Therapist Development Center. The founder, Amanda, made me feel secure that there would be someone to guide me during the process and help me should I fail. Emily, the LMSW exam coach assigned to me, was on call to answer my questions whenever I reached out. I found using this approach gave me confidence and empowered me. They normalized taking breaks and went through all the content areas thoroughly. I did not feel like I was an income source to them but more specifically, these were my peers looking to help become one of them. I am so excited that I passed and I truly have the Therapist Development Center team to thank!!!”

For me, TDC study methods took much of the confusion out of the exam and structured my studying in such a way that I felt confident and assured. The test was pretty tough - but, I passed!  Thank you, TDC!"
