Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2021 Licensed Clinical Social Worker Exam Study System prepares social workers to pass the CLINICAL Level Exam administered by the ASWB. This LCSW Exam Study System is fully updated to reflect the content on the 2021 ASWB exam. Included in the online study system is access to:

  • An organized, step-by-step study plan that allows you to create a personalized, easy to follow schedule.  Many students waste valuable time trying to figure out what to study and often miss out on key topics OR end up over studying topics that are unlikely to show up on the exam.  Our plan keeps you focused and efficient - covering exactly what you need to know for the ASWB's Licensed Clinical Social Worker exam and nothing you don’t.
  • Online audio workshops with downloadable handouts – listen when you want and how much you want.  This means you can study on the go - in the car, on a walk, at the gym, or cleaning your house. The audio and visual study materials work for all types of learners.
  • Effective study tools for the ASWB Clinical Exam — Top 50 Topics Tested, Law & Ethics Quiz, DSM 5 Audio Lectures, and Outline, Quick Studies, and Quizzes for key terms and content that will appear on the LCSW test.
  • Clinical examples that help you learn instead of memorizing. To pass this exam you need to understand how to approach the reasoning-based questions that make up the vast majority of the LCSW exam, including being able to identify what the key clinical concept of each question is. Our study program brings content alive with real-life examples similar to the ones you will see on the LCSW exam.
  • Clear test-taking strategies you will use on exam day to figure out what they are asking and what the best answer is. Our study program for the national LCSW exam also focuses on anxiety management to keep you thinking clearly.
  • ASWB practice exams with over 750+ practice questions that include detailed audio or written rationales, & reflect the actual kinds of questions you will see on the ASWB Clinical Level Exam.  Our questions were written by social workers who passed with scores of 90% or higher on the ASWB Clinical Exam, so the questions accurately reflect what you will see on the test (unlike many other practice tests and programs you will find out there in the test prep world).
  • Experienced coaches are available via email for questions and support who will always get back to you within two business days (but are often able to get back to you even sooner!).

The LCSW licensing exam training takes roughly 57 hours of study time to complete once. We recommend studying between 2 and 12 weeks. Access to the program expires after 4 months, but it is FREE to extend or repeat the program. We are with you until you PASS the Licensed Clinical Social Work Exam! Once you sign up, you can access the program & digital resources immediately. Nothing is shipped - it is all online. Get started now to prepare yourself to PASS the ASWB Clinical Exam with confidence!

Still unsure if our LCSW Exam Prep is right for you?

Here at the Therapist Development Center, we understand that taking the ASWB Clinical Level Exam can be daunting, and choosing the right social work ASWB Clinical exam guide can be confusing. Many of you have jobs that are dependent on you passing this LCSW exam. Others have been out of graduate school for a long time and feel out of touch with the broad amount of content tested on the ASWB Clinical Exam. Finding the right LCSW licensing exam training and LCSW exam prep program can be challenging with so many options - books, workshops, apps, and other online options.

Many social workers come to us after using other LCSW study guides and failing, finding themselves feeling defeated or hopeless that they won't find the help they need. They report that with other social work ASWB Clinical exam guides, they were overwhelmed with a pile of books, that the day-long workshop only covered a small portion of the content tested, or that the online program they went through didn’t teach them how to answer the types of questions that showed up on their exams.  We totally get it. We created a robust study program for the ASWB Clinical Exam that offers multiple learning methods, so your brain can learn both the content you need to pass and the strategy needed to break down the unique types of questions that show up on this exam. The good news is, once the social workers who previously failed started studying with us, they quickly found themselves with a renewed sense of confidence and were able to successfully PASS their ASWB Clinical Level Exams.

Course Reviews

Due to personal reasons, it took me three and a half years post graduate school to complete my clinical hours. When it was time to prepare for my clinical exam, I felt somewhat unprepared considering how long I had been out of school. However, TDC prepared me by increasing my confidence in the material that would be tested. My specific exam required 102 correct answers to pass however I answered 125 questions correctly! I passed on the first try so if you are considering purchasing this study material do not hesitate!

I followed the study program exactly as recommended and it adequately prepared me. I also felt a sense of confidence going into the exam.
Thank you TDC!

TDC did the legwork for me. If I had not used TDC I would have been overwhelmed about what information to study. At times I doubted TDC was all I needed, but I trusted the process and passed on first try. Yaaay!

First off , I’m very grateful to TDC for the study guide which was instrumental in me passing. I’ve taken this test multiple times before but really did not know how to study, The information is well organized which helped with my testing anxiety. I would recommend anyone studying to PLEASE use the Coaches. INVALUABLE! This is by far the most anxiety provoking situation I’ve found myself in and 16 years after completing my MSW , and now using TDC, I’ve succeeded.

Please don’t give up if you’re stuck or have testing anxiety like I do. It’s worth it when you’ve succeeded.

I really like the fact that TDC uses audio and visual aides to address the different learning styles. The rationals are also wonderful.

This program is excellent and covers all materials completely. You just need to make a plan and stick to it.

This was the greatest study prep course I have ever taken. The speakers were personable, engaging, and offered incredible insight and explanations for topics. The outline was perfectly crafted all the way through. It truly sets you up for success. Even down to tips on what and when to eat before the exam and the importance of this - I have never even thought about this aspect before as part of a study and prep plan. I would recommend this program for anyone. I even felt comfortable and confident while taking the exam. And honestly in addition I feel this program has made me a better practitioner. Thank you!

TDC is simple to understand and really helped me learn in all different styles. I’m so grateful.

Please, please, please do not let the price tag deter you from registering for this course. You will not receive a more comprehensive detailed guide to assist you with this exam. Following this curriculum will reduce anxiety and give you the confidence to succeed. PLEASEEEEE register for this course

wonderful prep course! Would recommend to anyone taking the ASWB exams

I did not follow the guide exactly to the T but I used TDC along with some YouTube videos to study for the exam. I passed on my first attempt! I would and already have recommended TDC to anyone studying. The breakdown of questions and rationale for each answer helped dissect each question on the exam and keep me from overthinking or "adding" to each question. So thankful!!

I have been out of school and a registered intern for YEARS. I was absolutely terrified to take the exam because I hadn't been in school for a while. I previously took an exam prep course with another entity but still didn't feel prepared to test. TDC came VERY highly recommended by several of my social work friends. The program was easy to follow and gave me the tools that I needed to test confidently. The combination of study materials (audio, visual and written) was extremely helpful. I am proud to report that I passed the LCSW exam on my first try, thanks to TDC! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!

This course saved my career with a new baby on the way. As a step father of two and my first biological one on the way, I needed to pass my LCSW within the next month in order to keep my job. I panicked exactly when I realized that the study guides I had been using before this were substandard, and I purchased TDC after several recommendations from friends. Your course was truly the missing piece to my studies and I ended up passing on my first try. I would recommend this course to anyone shooting for their LCSW. This is the cream of the crop.

TDC was so helpful. All the info is explained in a way that is easy to understand and paced well. I listened to the recordings probably 10x or more.

I had failed the exam previously and was so worried about passing. A friend told me about TDC and I completed it over a few months. It helped me get organized and stay focused! I felt very prepared during the exam and can’t thank TDC enough for helping me finally pass my ASWB clinical exam!!!

Thanks to TDC, I passed with flying colors on my first attempt with a 130! I did the whole program twice, and listened to the audios several times. I felt very prepared. The best part about TDC for me was the breakdown of the study schedule, as well as the audios. Thank you, TDC!

I enjoyed the brake down of the questions; it was the most helpful to listen to the audios and the mock exams. Thank you all for the work you do!!

After failing the first time and attempting to study on my own I realized I needed something more structured to keep me focused and accountable. I felt like TDC helped me think more critically and prepared me to think like the test! Now after 5 months I was able to pass and I am officially an LCSW!

I bought the ASWB study books/guides to start studying for the LCSW and felt like I had to figure out how best to study and I just didn't know how to study for an exam like this. I heard about TDC from multiple people who credited this program to their success, and trusting their judgement, I signed up for it and I'm SO THRILLED I did!! I went through the program twice because I was just so anxious about it. This was extremely comprehensive and I could hear Amanda talk out each question in my mind as I went through the exam - this program taught me how to think about each question. I was still not very confident going in, but then I passed with FLYING COLORS!! I give this program 5 stars all day long, and will recommend it to everyone!

I would highly recommend this course. It helped prepare me to pass on the first go!
