LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 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 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!

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

This program was very helpful. The recorded training sessions were so helpful and really meet me learning needs. The mock exams seemed accurate.

This is a great program! I typically have test anxiety so it felt weird to me that I was actually going into an exam with confidence. I think this program is totally worth the money if you want to thoroughly know the material and feel confident passing.

I spent months going over the material TDC provided and I was nervous the day of the exam, but I passed. I am so thankful for this program!

This program was AMAZING! It was very hands on, organized, and thorough (without going into unnecessary details). I felt extremely prepared and would highly recommend this course to everyone.

I felt prepared and confident taking the exam. Thank you!

The first time I took the test, I didn't study at all and failed. The second time I took the test, I used other study materials and programs and failed again. This program is different from what I had tried, and after finishing this program, I felt more confident to take the test, more knowledgeable, and I Passed! Also, it was a great refresher from what I learned in school. My advice is don't waste your time or money on other programs and do this program because it is worth the money, your time, and it will help you succeed.

I finally passed the exam! I am very grateful for this study course. The amount of information in this course is adequate to pass this exam. The practice quizes, content, and exams really helped prepare. Thank You! I'm so grateful to have finally completed this course and the exam successfully!

This course was EXACTLY what I needed to prepare for my exam! I tried studying with other materials, but always felt somewhat lost and overwhelmed. This course provided me with the means to get organized, test my comprehension, gauge progress, and feel confident in my clinical skills. I'm thankful to those that recommended this course and will certainly be recommending it to others!

TDC Family, Thank you for taking the time to create a meaningful study program. The study format and materials met my needs, and my coach was responsive. I passed the exam on my first attempt! Stay Healthy, Paris

As a person with a learning disability and test anxiety I was well prepared for the exam thanks to this program! They really help you break down the questions and how to pass. It was amazing and would recommend to any social workers struggling to take this exam!

TDC was fantastic! The test is INTENSE, even after having all the resources with TDC, but having the full mock exam with tons of other smaller quizzes and tests was extremely helpful and definitely prepared me to take the test. There were a number of questions I felt extremely comfortable with on the test, and then I still flagged like 20 that I was unsure about, and I passed with a score of 114. I am so glad it is over with and I would absolutely recommend this program to anyone who plans to take the test.

I highly recommend using TDC to pass your exam! I used them to pass both my law and ethics and clinical exams on my first attempt. They prepare you really well to go and succeed. I am an audio learner and the recordings helped me lock in the information I needed to know to feel confident going in. The clinical test is challenging, but I felt prepared after going through TDC's materials and taking all of the practice exams offered.

I cannot recommend this program enough. The mix of study guides and audio lessons were great, and then the practice tests for each topic were incredibly helpful to identify what topics I needed to devote a little more time to. I definitely think if I had only stuck with the other study materials I had, I would not have done anywhere near as well as I did. Thank you so much!!!

This program definitely helped me pass the exam. I thought the quick studies were super helpful when it came to recall questions on the exam. I felt prepared entering the testing center.

More than anything TDC taught me how to take the LCSW exam. It prepared me for what to expect. I felt like I was just taking a mock exam even when I was sitting for the real one.

I rescheduled my exam numerous times prior to taking it due to fear of failing. I read all the horror stories of others failing the clinical exam multiple times. I was originally using different study material and began to feel overwhelmed, unorganized, under prepared, and extremely anxious. I purchased TDC, rescheduled my exam-again, and immediately felt relief as soon as I saw the structure of the program. After a few weeks I began to feel confident. The quick studies, practice exams, and mock exams were so helpful! There was even an extremely similar, if not the same, question on the exam that was in one of the mocks. I felt every question I was asked was touched on by TDC in some form or fashion. I truly would not have been anywhere near ready to pass the exam if I hadn’t used TDC. I went in with nerves, but I felt pretty confident that TDC had prepared me and that I had prepared myself. I am so thankful for TDC and proud to have passed on my first attempt.

I am so grateful that my friends referred me to TDC. I had previously used a different program to study for the LCSW exam. While I felt somewhat prepared, I sat for the exam for the first time this summer, and did not pass. As I’m sure many can relate, I was devastated and felt beyond defeated. I have horrible test anxiety and did not know how to start studying again. I was hesitant about purchasing TDC because of the cost, and can confidently say it was well worth the money spent. Not only did I feel confident and prepared on test day, but I was able to follow a study schedule that worked with my crazy school social worker schedule. Being able to listen to lectures on the go, while commuting to work, made studying even easier. Additionally, having a coach I could reach out to who helped ease my anxiety around FIRST/NEXT questions was a huge bonus! I cannot thank TDC enough for all of their amazing study materials and immediate support with any questions I had. I would highly recommend this program to anyone preparing to take the LCSW exam. Thank you so much Amanda and TDC!

Thank you all for allowing me to continue with this program until I passed! The first time I failed by 5 points! This time I passed by 15 points! Thank you for the audio, quizzes, mocks, quick study sheets and breaking things down!

I did not pass my first clinical exam. I studied with a method that taught us “how to test” but did not provide the in-depth material that your program did. The lectures were extremely helpful. I actually listened to some while driving to the test, which was two hours away. Thank you, thank you!

The program helped give me structure, helpful tips, and reduced my stress levels. The format helped me enjoy the material and not get overwhelmed by the amount of content needed to review.
