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

Our 2019 LCSW Exam Study System prepares social workers to pass the CLINICAL Level Exam administered by the ASWB. Our 2019 LCSW Exam Study System is fully updated to reflect the new 2019 ASWB exam. Our online study system includes access to:

  • An organized, step-by-step study plan that allows you to create a personalized, easy to follow schedule.  Many people 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.
  • Clinical examples that help you learn instead of memorize. 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 program brings content alive with real life examples like the ones you will see on the ASWB Clinical Level 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 strategies also focus 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).
  • Coaches available for questions and support who will always get back to you within two business days (but are often able to get back with you even sooner!).

Our LCSW Exam Prep/Clinical Exam Prep program takes 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 immediately. Nothing is shipped - it is all on-line. 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 very daunting.  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 Exam Prep can be challenging with so many options - books, workshops, apps and other on-line options.

Many social workers come to us after using other LCSW study guides and failing, finding themselves feeling defeated and hopeless. They report that 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

The TDC program really helped to get me organized and feel confident going into the exam. There were far more reasoning questions for the LCSW than the LMSW I took 2 years ago, and the mock exam accurately helped me to prepare for that. This is the second time I've used the program. First for my LMSW in which I passed the first time with a score of 127 out of 96 needed. This time for my LCSW I passed the first time with 129 out of 102 needed. I would definitely recommend this program to others!

I failed the ASWB clinical exam twice before purchasing the TDC program. I’ve now recommended this program to anyone who will listen to me! My score for my third was above and beyond what I needed to pass and they helped give me strategies to tackle this test that I didn’t find anywhere else. I’m very grateful I took the time and spent the money. The program can be used one consuming, but it is well worth it.

Thank you TDC for an amazing program. As a full time employee, mommy and wife your program structure worked perfectly for me. I felt prepared and confident going into the exam. Best of all, I conquer the ASWB exam.

I passed! This was my 2nd time taking the LCSW exam. The first time I used TDC and missed it by 5 points. I retook the TDC program but focused a little more on slowing down reading the questions carefully and considering the steps I would take if I were doing whatever session the scenario described and it worked. Don’t get discouraged. I went a year before I retook the exam and seeing that pass was so emotional for me. I definitely would not have been able to pass without the TDC program and listening to those audios while in traffic.

I was previously licensed in another state and was grandfathered in for the LISW license and did not need to take the exam. I was only required to do the supervised hours. I chose to be a stay at home mom for a few years and placed my license on inactive status. After moving to another state I attempted to reactivate and reciprocate my license to learn that I would need to take the exam. I successfully put off taking the exam for 15 years due to testing anxiety and being able to find employment without my license. TDC gave me the confidence to take the exam and I passed on my first try! On my test day I told myself to attack the test and followed the break and snack suggestion at the 85 question mark. I felt really confident going into the exam and reminded myself to "attack the test". I also employed the circle of confidence strategy that I learned through my hypnosis training/certification. This technique helped when my nerves kicked in during the test and I started second guessing my answers. I also used the "aha" tip and actually after checking a few marked questions chose to trust my gut and didn't look at any other marked questions and submitted my answers. I would highly recommend this program!! Thanks so much!

TDC fully prepared me to pass this exam! Thank you for this wonderful resource!

Although I received my supervision right after obtaining my LMSW over 25 years ago - life circumstances had forced me to put off the LCSW - but it has always been my long term goal to become an LCSW. Given that I had not taken any type of test in over 25 years - I was very anxious about the entire process. I signed up back in Dec to test on 2/5. I did some light studying in Dec– but had always planned on “diving in” in Jan. Well, I got a lingering “flu-like” virus in Jan (1st 3 weeks) and almost postponed the test - but am so glad I didn't. I’m married, have 2 teenage daughters, run my own company, had a national speaking engagement in Jan and a trip to NY pre-planned for Jan. Signed up with TDC on 1/11 and made a firm goal in my head that I would commit to study and follow their system. The beauty of the TDC system is you fit studying into your life – with pre-planning (and commitment to execute) – you can really fit it around existing commitments. For example – I planned out exactly what audio I would listen to on my flights to NY, down time at the airport and this type of thing. The “chunking” of study topics makes it so “do-able”! Also, Amanda makes it almost enjoyable to study - I felt like not only was I studying - but I was becoming a better social worker for my training company as well! The TDC advice from start to finish of the entire process was "spot-on". I truly took Amanda/Heidi and TDC into the test with me - they helped me stay calm (when questions were difficult), keep my focus, not panic and to remember that I had it within me to do this. I truly attacked this test thanks to TDC. My lifelong dream of becoming an LCSW has come true. Thank you so much to TDC - I highly, highly recommend their system!

I have been putting off studying for my LCSW for several years as I didn't know where to start with studying. An acquaintance told me about TDC and highly recommended it to use to help me with breaking down the steps to successfully pass my exam. I paid for the program several months ago, but as a result of work and job changes I just couldn’t seem to be able to make studying a priority. Finally January 22, 1019, I registered for my test, which was this morning, 2/13/19. Over the past few weeks I followed the program to a “T”, listened to the audio recordings a few times, and focused on the quizes. I felt confident going into the exam and am so relieved it it over. Follow the program, you too can pass! Good Luck!

I started off studying with another program and realized it was very disorganized and overwhelming with information. I was more stressed trying to navigate through the website then studying for the exam. Once I heard about this program I checked it out and it was exactly what I was looking for. Although I lost money to the other program it was worth using this program. I was confident and well prepared to pass my exam! Thank you so much for taking your time to create a well organized and stress free program!

TDC is awesome! I passed my clinical exam on the first attempt without any issues! I found out I was pregnant right after purchasing the program, and they were very generous in working with me to extend my service since I was unable to study as anticipated due to morning sickness. I felt very prepared after taking the two full mock exams and I felt they were definitely an excellent representation of the actual exam. Thank you TDC!

This course changed my way of thinking about the test questions. It's so important to really look at each question. Thinking about what I would actually do as a therapist FIRST made a huge impact. There were also several subjects that I am far from an expert in so those sections really helped. There are a few areas where I have never practiced so I appreciate the expertise of the coaches. The mock exams were fantastic. Thank you!

Without this program, I know I would not have been able to adequately prepare for the exam. I am so relieved to have passed and so appreciative for this resource.

I highly recommend TDC for their critical thinking approach to the exam. The coaches were unbelievably speedy in their responses, that helped clarify rationales, and how to break down certain topics. The extension was fantastic, because life's schedule does not alway coordinate with the reality of exam taking. I didn't schedule the exam right away, and found out, too late, that my next opportunity to take the exam was 3 months down the road. I had already completed the program, but needed the extension so I go refresh and review before the test. Thank you for creating such a great study system!

As I mentioned the instruction program was extremely helpful the study guides, practice test and audio prepared me for a good review of what I needed to pass. I would highly recommend this to anyone preparing for the aswb test. Thank you so much for the work putting this program together.

I passed! I felt so confident going in to the exam thanks to this program. Something I found really useful that did not hit me until I was listening to the final prep was that when you are given a question with the words "What would you do first/next?" to realize that all the answers may be right and you need to put them in order. I'd heard it said to put them in order throughout the study material but did not connect it with those words for some reason. Many times I would choose an answer in a practice exam or quiz that seemed really good only to get it wrong because I was going too quickly and not thinking through that there may be something I need to do before that really good answer. I heard Amanda's voice in my head as well which meant, for me, that I really had retained a lot of the material. I did have to use quizlet to help me memorize those research terms a little better because I was struggling with them, but I don't remember a single research question. I really got a lot out of the ethics portion of the materials and did see several ethics questions on the exam that I felt strong in answering. However, I feel more confident in understanding ethical issues in social work in general and I appreciate that even more. I am grateful to have found this program and will recommend it to anyone I know who is going to be taking the exam. Thank you so much!

I was confident going into the test and felt prepared to tackle all the questions.

Passed on my first attempt! Shoutout TDC for the support!

TDC helped me so much! I really enjoyed the audio as well as the practice test. The rationale helped me greatly. Thanks again TDC best money I’ve spent on study materials!

I love the Therapist Development Center-- it helped me pass both the Law and Ethics and the Clinical exam, and I don't think I could have done it without this study system. Not only is the information excellent and a perfect preparation for the actual exams, but I felt like I was actually exercising my clinician brain and strengthening my actual professional knowledge, and enhancing my confidence every step of the way in my ability to pass. Thi program helped me reach a very long held goal, and I am very grateful!

This program came highly recommended by several colleagues, and I'm so grateful I purchased it. Thanks to TDC I passed the exam on my first attempt and with a score well over the required score. I really enjoyed the audios and learned a lot from the practice exams. I will definitely recommend this program to colleagues preparing for the exam.
