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! 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

Started using TDC 2 months before my LCSW exam. Passed on the first try! Without the content of this program and the Full Mock Exams, I do not think I would have passed! I recommended the program to all of my friends!

TDC is amazing! Everything was so orderly and laid out perfectly for me to follow! I have ADD along with test anxiety so its sometimes a challenge for me to sit and listen to a lecture or keep organized. With TDC the lectures were fairly compact, and I was able to print out everything ahead of time to follow along, and take my own notes!
I graduated 6 years ago with my MSW and took one other study program which was not NEARLY as helpful and organized as TDC! I made sure to set aside time each and every day to study, listen to lectures, and review all the information TDC had to offer!
I would HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone who is wanting to take and pass their LCSW exam.

It was a great course. I felt prepared. I scored 16 points higher than my previous exam.

Therapist Development Center helped me pass my exam on the first try! I answered 118 questions correct which was 16 more questions answered correctly than I needed to pass the exam. I highly recommend this program. The thing I found most helpful was that the curriculum was outlined for me. The lectures were very helpful as well. Thank you from a very happy customer!

Thank you TDC!!!! I would have not felt prepared on test day, if I did not use the study material and guidance. I appreciated the quick studies, audio, quizzes and Final Mocks. All were super helpful in retaining the information and really understanding the material.

Struggle no more!! Use The Therapist Development Center to pass your EXAM!!

The course information was extremely easy to follow with the study guides and audio lectures. I felt very prepared going into the exam and passed first try. On the actual exam there were only a few questions that had terminology I was not familiar with from the study material. TDC spent the most time talking about, and quizzing on areas of information that applied most to the actual exam. I used no other study guides or programs in my preparation for the exam. I would recommend this program to anyone preparing for the exam. Thank you!

I passed the first time! The program was great, and spot on with questions presented on the test. You really can hear the instructors voice, walking you through the test as you take it. Great support, thank you TDC!

TDC prepared me to pass my LCSW on the first try!

Although I had to take the exam several times it was no reflection on your study material. This past year was a very difficult one for me personally. I persevered and never gave up and your materials definitely prepared me for the exam.

I would like to thank the Therapist Development Center and especially Amanda for getting me pass a 25 year hurdle. I received my MSW in 1997 and was later grandfathered into my LMSW. Due to my career options I had never really had a need to complete the journey of obtaining my LCSW. Part of this was also my own fear of taking exams and hearing how difficult the clinical exam was. After dodging the test for almost 20 years I was recently blessed with a job opportunity which required me to get my LCSW. I was concerned about how much had changed in the field over the years in addition to my graduate program 25 years ago was not very clinical. I however decided to face my fears and take the exam. I did my research online and came across the TDC which sounded very promising. I ordered the program and observed that it was perfect for me, as I called it " preparing for the LCSW for dummies". LOL. Upon taking the initial evaluation in the program I scored a 52% which confirmed everything I feared. However in following this course suggestions at my own pace ( 5 months) my scores on the quizzes and mock exam went up to 73% to 76%. In the last unit I read that if you were between the mid to upper 70% you were in good shape which I did not believe. I am please to say that when I sat the exam I found myself knowing almost all the answers and was able to pass with an 81% with 45 minutes to spare. Not only did this course enable me to complete my goal of passing my clinicals but the information that was given throughout the course was so invaluable. I believe the information has made me a much better clinician. I thank you ladies and I would highly recommend The Therapist Development Center to anyone.

I had taken this exam three times prior to signing up to Therapist Development Center. I had tried studying on my own and every time I took the exam, I came VERY CLOSE to passing. I knew that if I was planning to take it a fourth time, I would have to do something different. I knew that at that point, there wasn't any more information I could retain. At that point, it was about learning how to take the test. Therapist Development Center did exactly this! It helped me prepare and understand the test. After using Therapist Development Center, I FINALLY passed! I am so thankful for this course and would recommend it to anyone pursuing their LCSW. Don't wait as long as I did! It's definitely worth the money.

This program is your one-stop shop to pass the exam. It's comprehensive and organized well. I completed the course in less than a week (not recommended) :) but it is how I tackled it. I passed without even getting to the full mock exams. Again, this was due to my own personal timeline issues. I like to fly by the seat of my pants. Follow the plan, it will give you what you need to rock the exam! Thanks Amanda and Team!

TDC has great study material,

I will always be grateful to TDC and especially Coach Heidi! I am a big believer in TDC for exam prep!

I purchased this study program after reading about it online. I then experienced a series of very stressful events, moved across the continent, major surgeries and complications for my husband, had a baby, ect. This made me have to put off studying for awhile. TDC gave me more than 1 extension happily which eased so much worry. I began studying and was shocked at how wonderfully the program was layed out. I didn't quite finish it when I found out if it didn't take my test within the next 2 days, I'd have to wait 3 months. So I consulted TDC staff who went ABOVE AND BEYOND in their emails to me explaining how to be successful. I took the test and passed with a great score! To say I'm pleased with TDC would never be adequate enough. I will recommend this program to everyone I know that needs testing. I'm so grateful for you ladies.

I am a horrible test taker. I have intense exam anxiety and have been known to read questions too quickly to “get the test over with”. I heard about TDC through different exam forums and decided to try it because I found I was really anxious trying to put a study schedule together myself only using Dawn Apgar’s study materials. The break down of all the necessary material and how to read questions was vital to my success on the LCSW exam. I truly believe that I would not have been able to pass without the help of TDC. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone taking the social work exam. Thank you TDC!!!

Honestly if I didn’t hear about you guys I would have failed. I’ve never felt so prepared for a test in my life.

This program really helped me to become organized. At one point, I started having doubts because there were so many things going on in my world that I couldn't focus 100% of my attention on studying. However, I took the last 3 weeks before my test and dedicated my time and attention to going over the content. This was the only study material that I used and I was pleased with the layouts. The mock tests and quizzes really played a major part in my studying.

Thank you TDC! You gave me the confidence to push through this beast of an exam. I loved the ease of the program and being able to review over and over. I needed an extension because my state board review was held up. TDC was happy to extend me well past my test date. Thank you!!
