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

I think the most helpful take-always for me with this study program was that I helped me to think with reason/logic and not to over-study. I was able to take a practical approach, which was in turn very grounding.

This program is outstanding! I took the test twice before and used other study materials that were not nearly as effective! This program increased my confidence in preparing to take the test for a third time. This program really focuses on what needs to be learned and understood in order to successfully answer the questions on the exam. I am so grateful for this program. I wish I would have known about this study program sooner! Thank you so much for providing such a great services !!! It has been a blessing to me!!

The program was so wonderful! I felt really prepared for the test and had minimal anxiety. I really liked the layout of the study program, the practice test, and all the audio recordings explaining information. I would recommend this to all my fellow colleagues.

This program was awesome, and truly helped me understand what the question was truly asking.

TDC 100000% helped me pass my LCSW exam. I feel like I barely knew anything before I entered the program, to be honest lol. Their lectures are great and cover a large variety of topics you'll need to know to be fully prepared for the exam. I am grateful I didn't pay to take a DSM course during my graduate program because the DSM lectures were extremely informative. The program did a good job covering almost everything I was tested on (I would say about 85% of it). I do wish there had been more information/definitions for all of the incorrect answers on the quizzes more consistently, because sometimes I wanted to know why what I chose specifically was incorrect but wasn't always given that information. My memory isn't the best, and I found myself searching for information on my own, or in my notes more than I would have liked to. Having that information readily available on each quiz would have been helpful for me. That would be my only suggestion, besides more practice tests :) I LOVED the practice tests and learned an insane amount of information from all of the practice exams - especially the mock exams! I highly recommend this program. I came in feeling afraid and hesitant of my abilities, but today, I write this with tears in my eyes because of how empowered I feel as a LICENSED CLINICAL social worker. I did it and YOU CAN TOO! Thank you so much, TDC!

TDC was a great program and very comprehensive. I really enjoyed the audio lectures on the topics and DSM. I listened to it on my commutes to and from work. The rationales for the quizzes and tests were also very helpful in studying the rationale of the test.

Very thankful for this study program as I am a visual and auditory learner. With this program, I can use it at any time and take it with me on the go for studying. The practice exams were helpful as it helped me prepare for sitting down for several hours and focusing on test taking. When I was taking my exam, I would hear Amada's voice going through the question with me in order to breakdown what the question was asking and eliminating wrong answers. I would highly recommend this program to others.

TDC was AMAZING in preparing me. Fresh out of grad school and into a career, they were able to teach me things school never did. Making a plan in the beginning helped tremendously. I heard Amanda’s voice during the exam and felt confident with my answers. Thank you TDC and I highly recommend this program.

Great program. Gets to the point efficiently and fast.

This program is fabulous! It is very comprehensive and I feel it adequately prepared me for the exam which I passed on the first try. Thank you TDC!

My friend and colleague recommended TDC when she saw me starting to look at page one of the DSM. TDC covered every area, buT their strategies were really GOLDEN! Thank you!

I was diligent and focused in my studies and completed the TDC program over the last two weeks. I sat for the LCSW licensing exam today, for the first time, and scored well and passed the exam! I had not studied or used any other programs or materials. I went into the exam feeling well prepared, but more impressive to me is that this program explained concepts and material in ways that were better and more “real life” applicable than some of the formal education I received. I will be a better Therapist as a result of having completed this course. Thank YOU for sharing your gifts and talents with all of us, I am very grateful!

The study program was great. I spent a lot of time studying and went through the program at least 3 times.
The test was not easy and I would have not passed without the amount of studying I did.

I am super excited to have passed my Clinical exam on the first try with the help of TDC. I followed the sample outline given and it helped with organization. TDC is a excellent study program.

I only used TDC to study for my exam. I have bad test anxiety and this program helped me feel good going into the exam. I was able to slow down and really evaluate what it was asking and did well!

This program is worth every single penny. The real value here that makes this program better than any other is the in depth instruction on how to think and the rationales for them. I’m an auditory learner so this program is so so wonderful.

Initially, I was very intimidated by the LCSW exam. I was frankly hesitant to invest in the Therapist Development Center Exam Prep but I was more concerned with the cost of having to take the exam multiple times. Once I made the investment I was intimidated by the amount of studying required and figured I would just use the schedule as a suggestion but just hop around and not invest as much time. I fast-forwarded to a quiz and I did horribly. It was discouraging but it made me realize I should do the Exam Prep exactly as it was intended.

I am SO glad I did because I passed on the first try. Therapist Development Center, thank you so much. Y'all are incredible!

I wouldn't have passed without TDC, I really appreciate the easy to follow and informative process! Thank you so much!

TDC helped me tremendously! I was much more confident and prepared this time. The organization, the strategies. the content, listening to the audio’s on long drives was very convenient for me as full-time worker. I am more than ecstatic to have passed!!!

I was very impressed with the study program. It was very well organized and paced. I liked the different modalities used to present the materials - having variety made it easy to engaging with the material.
