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

TDC was worth every penny and helped me prioritize what I needed to study for the exam. I felt supported by having TDC every step of the way ( they even provided a final pep talk). If you feel unorganized and anxious about the exam, I recommend using TDC!!

I have always been a nervous test taker. But I went into this exam with a positive and confident attitude thanks to this course. The prep exams, quick studies, quizzes and mock exams helped be polish and fine pick my reasoning skills in order for me to kick this exam in the behind ! I passed on my first try and I couldn't be more grateful that I came across this excellent program. Thank you so much!

TDC supported me in my journey towards licensure. The in-depth study materials and range of options served as a guide throughout my study process! I am grateful to have passed on the first try using your study course!

PASSED!!! I certainly did far better on my LCSW exam using TDC in compared to my mid level licensure (LGSW) exam using graduate level prep courses from another company. All you need to do is follow TDC’s recommendation to the T. I also did well on my mock exams (82/83) and that’s how I knew I was ready to crush this test. The mock exams definitely helped me getting prepared on how to read the questions and pay attention to the FIRST/NEXT vs MOST IMPORTANT. Purchasing this program was the best decision I’ve made! Highly recommended!

TDC was an excellent, easy to use program that prepared me for the content of the LCSW. I highly recommend it to anyone!

This course is fantastic! I went through it a couple times prior to taking my test. I attempted to use some other study material, but nothing else made me feel prepared like TDC. I felt confident walking into the test and passed on the first try. I highly recommend this program!

I finally passed on my third attempt. On the first two tries I had been using other study materials that did not adequately prepare me for the exam. This time the passing score was a 103 and I received a 109. I also had accommodations this time which helped me a lot.

TDC was the best study tool for every test in the ASWB exam series. I was extremely confident and prepared for my final exam without a doubt. If you would have told me the ASWB exam writers were the same TDC staff, I would agree! The questions were even a little simpler than TDC and all of the material was adequately covered. I couldn't even point out any of the 20 pre-test questions that aren't scored on the real exam. Advocate to be able to eat and drink during this exam for future takers!! I will always recommend TDC -- ALWAYS!

I took the exam previously and failed but kept on with the program and passed on my 2nd try! Tears of joy. Thank you so much for everything! Huge sigh of relief. Couldn't have done it without this program!

I failed the LMSW twice before passing, and chose this course for the LCSW. I passed on my FIRST try! Trust the process, it really doe\s work! I could not be more grateful for this program! Thank you, TDC!!!!

Could not have passed my exam without this!! It put my mind at ease to follow the schedule and have things lined up to stay on track.

This program was excellent! I got an 87% on my first try taking the LCSW exam, and I only had two weeks to study. It not only taught me the material but showed me how to think about the questions. Overall, a great program, and I would recommend it to anyone!

Thank you so much! I passed with a 92%! TDC really helped me approach reasoning-based questions. The explanations of how to respond to FIRST/NEXT and BEST/MOST questions were incredibly helpful for the exam as well as the quick studies on information for recall questions (my exam had multiple questions about defense mechanisms so I'm glad I reviewed that a lot). The blog posts and the additional practice questions were another really useful resource! Lastly, I wanted to mention that I really appreciated the prompt and thorough response from Emily Pellegrino when I submitted an inquiry to ask a coach! Thank you!

Thank you so much! I felt super prepared and ready to attack the test! Very successful program :)

I took another test prep program last spring, and felt discouraged because the material was overwhelming. I signed up for the TDC exam prep just a month before taking my exam, and began to feel more confident in my ability to take and pass the test. I am so glad I took this, and will recommend it to all my peers!

Thank you, the materials were well done, and I am sure helped me pass. I felt confident taking the exam.

I enjoyed this course a lot. It taught me how to break down each question and answer it effectively. I enjoyed being able to navigate the course at my own pace.

Therapy Development Center was amazing and I truly cant put into words how grateful I am. Having this regimented study guide made learning fun and most importantly, practical. The information was broken down to a science and the combination of lectures, worksheets, mock, and full length exams was perfect. Though I felt unsure at times during the exam, the repetition of the informations stuck with me and I passed with flying colors. I needed 102 to pass and ended up getting 118 questions correct. Cant thank you ladies enough!

I joined the center in November 2021 after taking the LCSW exam 3 times. The program was highly recommended by 2 friends. I was reluctant due to the price but it's worth it in the long run. I have tried to review on my own and have taken a license prep class and other review methods, but it was not enough to help with the level of reasoning needed for the exam. I took the test for the fourth time in May 2022 but I did not pass, because I truly did not do the program as recommended. I was granted an extension, which is one of the best things about TDC. It's not about getting more money from you; they truly want us to pass. So, I took the extra time and applied all the tips, skills and lessons. I did the program step by step and most importantly I did the practice exams and reviewed all the rationales for answers that were correct and incorrect. The audio is great because it helped me with how I need to think and work through the question stems. I took the test again in September 2022 and PASSED!!!

TDC helped to prepare by providing extensions when I needed them but more importantly the mock's helped me evaluate what I was still missing and what I needed to study. The written material for me helped so I can create my own flashcards and use the material to adapt to my own method of studying. This was money well spent.
