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!).

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 had taken the exam twice before; both times I was 6 questions shy of passing. I was on the verge of wanting to give up and then I was recommended this program by a friend. What attracted me to the program was seeing other testimonials from those in similar situations as me but what set this program apart from the studying I did by myself was it taught me *how to think* and approach each question. The combination of teaching styles and just the sheer amount of information the course covered was incredible. I followed the recommendation and repeated the course and during the second run through was when everything really felt like it was falling into place. I spent 9 weeks total preparing for the exam and I am thrilled and relieved to say I passed. I know it would not have been possible without TDC and I'm forever grateful to this program! This course made me a better clinician and I plan on recommending it to everyone I know in the field. Thank you so much!

I have been out of graduate school for 22 years and It is not a doubt in my mind that I would not have passed this test the first time without this program. I was using other materials but I was not retaining the information because that is not how I learn. Your program provided audio that I could listen to while in the car and during lunch breaks. I appreciated the test taking strategies such as the quizzes and quick studies, and especially how you broke down the DSM V so I could remember the differences (timeframes) between the diagnosis. The mock exams and the rationales were so beneficial to understanding how the questions should be answered. Lastly I loved the pep talks and I actually had a few Aha moments and changed my marked questions by thinking about how you would answer the question. My test required 102 correct answers and I ended up getting 123 correct out of the 150 scored. Thank you so much developing this program.!

Test material was very informative..easy to follow and easy to listen to and retain information.

Commit to a study plan. Listen to the lessons repeatedly. Focus on the real life scenarios and learn how to rule out answer choices.

This is very good program. TDC's sample questions were exactly like the ones on the real exam while other company's questions were far from them. I felt comfortable that I can do all the questions way before the time was up without looking at the amount of time left on the screen because of all the practice tests and mock exams I have done.

TDC is the best online study program for obtaining licensure. This program includes quick studies, lectures, and testing, which other programs do not offer. I am so happy to have found TDC!

After failing twice, I was worried I wouldn't be able to pass. TDC helped me to understand themes of the exam and what to look for first. I was able to apply the themes to application questions. The amount of questions to go through was good practice for the exam.

This program, actually helped me LEARN. Not just memorize but actually learn. I think that is the difference between some of the programs out there. It is displayed more in a while to learn and grow, and not just here is material on the exam remember it. It also helps that there is difference formats, audio, handouts, write in quizzes, and digital quizzes.

Great program. Really targets the patterns of thinking that the test is looking for. This program gets it right

This program was AMAZING I heard Amanda’s voice the entire test. It’s not JUST the materials they give you it’s the method of thinking that transforms your test taking! I was positive and kind to myself and I took the testing thinking TDC prepped me for this, I CAN do this !

Adequately prepared me for the exam!

TDC was INCREDIBLY helpful because it meets diverse learning styles....MUCH NEEDED!! Thank you very much and have been recommending to peers and students I teach!

An awesome and honest prep course for the ASWB exams. Helped me to focus on what to study. Worth its weight in gold!

Such a helpful study course. I'm so glad there wasn't much outside research I needed to do in order to study for the LCSW. The support that I received when I asked questions was thought out and thorough. Thank you for creating this course!

Passed with a 94 percent on the clinical exam on the first try! TDC was the most helpful and comprehensive resource I used to study and was fitting to my learning style.

Thanks to TDC I was able to pass my exam!

TDC was great! The program was super and the organization was always responsive and very supportive. Thank you for helping me to pass both the Law and Ethics and then also my License exam. I am very grateful!

A friend recommended it to me when preparing for my Law and Ethics. I used it then too and passed the first time. When I started preparing for my clinical I knew I wanted to use TDC again. I did find it challenging memorizing the material, understanding the rationale behind the questions/answers and was not scoring so well on my practice tests and mocks. So I repeated the program again and studied the quick studies until I got them down. . After I repeated the program I was able to get my scores up and felt more confident in myself. And I passed my first time! Overall, what I love about this program is the audios, practice tests, and rationale provided afterwards. Thank you TDC for helping me pass!

First and foremost I give all the glory to God for passing my LCSW exam. I am also thankful for the TDC program for their directive on how to approach and study for the exam. The TDC program is so different from other programs and I would recommend it to others who are studying for their license. Thank you!!!

TDC was extremely helpful in my ability to pass. If you are an audio/visual learner, this is the program for you. I listened on commutes and when completing tasks around the house. They provide extensions without issue or an extra fee. They also outline a 5 and 8 week study schedule so you don’t have to worry doing so. They want to see you succeed! The mock exams were VERY similar to what you’ll see on the exam. I passed on the first try and cannot recommend it enough. Be sure to not only know ever content but also how to break down the questions. Lastly, don’t let the price deter you. It’s worth it.
