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

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2020 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 2020 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 with 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. 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 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

I am so humbled by this experience after failing the first time studying incorrectly. The therapist Development Center fully prepared me for the LCSW exam. Thank you for the amazing prep that changed my career and life.

So glad to have passed my LCSW clincial exam with TDC. I felt like I was prepared to tackle the questions and although there was some material that I didn't recognize on the test, I had enough strategies to answer the reasoning questions and didn't focus too much on what I didn't know. I also want to acknowledge that TDC was really supportive when I had to reschedule my test in Feb because of getting a stomach bug the night before the exam and extended it again when COVID hit and the test centers were such down. Thank you TDC! Would definitely recommend using this study program to anyone preparing to take their exam!

Not only did I pass my exam, I REALLY passed it. I finished 1.5 hours early, with plenty of time to check my marked questions. I felt confident hitting the submit button at the end. I really do believe this study program was worth every cent and every minute. I took the ASWB official practice test, as well, and while I think it was helpful to use the format the test would actually be in, I don't know that it was necessary after taking the mock exams in TDC; they were very similar.

TDC has been so incredibly helpful! I went into the exam confident and passed by more points than I expected. I owe TDC a HUGE thank you! From the worksheets, quizzes, audio recordings, practice tests, Amanda talking through the rationals, and much more, I had everything I needed to be more than well prepared to "attack" the exam. Keep up the amazing work and I will definitely be referring folks your way!

TDC came recommended to me by several colleagues, both LCSW's and LMFT's. I had no idea what I needed in a study program but had watched my colleagues pass on their first try using TDC. I am so grateful for their recommendation as the program prepared me above and beyond just passing. I learned practical and applicable content and skills that have undoubtedly shaped my social work practice. And I am elated to report I not only passed the exam on my first attempt, in the middle of a pandemic, while pregnant, and moving to a new city- but I scored a 83%!!! Thank you TDC!

I want to thank TDC for helping me prepare for this exam. This was my 3rd time taking it and when I saw PASS on my screen today, I literally jumped with joy! The quick studies, quizzes, and mock exams with the rationales were life savers on helping me process each question during the exam and helping me slowly down and think. TDC is worth every penny!!

I can’t not thank TDC enough. The program was worth the investment and the material is comprehensive. The techniques were beneficial and helped me to pass both LSW and LCSW exams on the first attempt.

Thanks to TDC I passed my exam on the first try! The program is extremely easy to follow and the lectures are extremely helpful. Also, the coaches are always available to answer questions, so I felt very supported. Coach Heidi answered all my questions via email and really took the time to explain the areas I did not fully understand. Thank you, TDC!

I began this program after failing my first attempt 6 months ago. This time, I scored far above what was needed to pass. I used TDC to study for my second attempt and it made a world of difference. I am eternally grateful for the production of this program and I have already recommended it to fellow LSW's. Thank you!!!!!

I knew 30 questions into the exam that I was going to pass. I felt very prepared and was not surprised by any of the questions. The mock exams were really helpful along with the rationales and the final pep talk gave me great advice (“mark and move on,” “tolerate uncertainty”). So grateful for this course!

I heard about the anxiety that the test caused. I knew that I needed a program that spoke to my learning style!!!! I didn't purchase any other testing program. I pass my first try!!!!!! I have already recommended it to my friends, and I am sure that they will pass the test with your guidance and program.
So grateful to the coaches. Shoutout to Heidi. You are awesome!! Thank you all so much!!! Many blessing to the TDC family.

This course was great! I learned a lot, especially from the quizzes and mock exams.

This program is seriously a gold mine! They narrow down all the material you need to know into 50 topics, making it much easier to digest than some of the other test prep programs. The mock exams and the test taking strategies are extremely helpful as well. I reached out to Heidi, one of the TDC coaches, a few times and she would usually get back to me within a matter of hours. I will continue to recommend TDC to anyone who is looking to pass the ASWB clinical exam!

TDC really prepared me for my exam. While I was taking the exam, I kept hearing the instructors' voices guiding me through my decision making process. I would 100% recommend this test prep to any other therapist preparing for their exam.

This program helped me not only prepare for the test but also prepared me for a clinical career in my profession. I went back even after the exam to access information to help with my job. I found that most of the information for recall questions was not needed. The biggest help from the program was putting things in order, and what must always be assessed first. I rarely felt confident on the test after answering a question, simply because the style of test did not usually have obvious answers. But I did get enough questions right to pass and I credit the program for that. I believe I got 122/170.

I am so grateful a friend recommended this program to me! I just graduated with my masters back in April, and began my studying in July for my exam in October. I completed this program three times and it prepared me really well!

I am so thankful to have had such a wonderful study system that stayed with me until I passed! I was confident and ready this time around! Thank you!!

I went through the program in one week and passed with relative ease. Thank you!!

I passed the test on my first try, and I know it was in large part due to this course. I needed 103 out of 170 correct on my version to pass. I got 129 correct! I will recommend this course to others and let them know the cost is worth it to feel competent and prepared.

I give high praises to TDC for condensing relevant study material into one program and developing mock exams to give students exposure to the real test. Although supervision was helpful in many aspects, it wasn't enough to prepare me for the clinical exam. Before a friend told me about TDC, I was overwhelmed with trying to re-read and read for the first time content from books assigned for the social work program. I panicked because there was no way I could retain hundreds of pages of information nor had the time. The TDC study materials and audio greatly reduced my stress and anxiety level. When I completed the program, I felt more confident and ready for the clinical exam.
