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

I'm just very appreciative of the program. This program prepared me to pass my Law and Ethics exam in 2021 and now the LCSW Clinical exam in 2023. I also loved the structure of the program, topics covered and Amanda's calming voice. I will always speak highly about TDC and encouraged colleagues to their program.

I would truly recommend TDC to anyone who is hoping to gain an effective study guide. I could have studied more and buckle myself down more with a stricter schedule but I passed on the first try. The number of mock exams and the variety of practice questions and lectures to help learn from is amazing. I am really appreciative that this program exists.

Wonderful program! I am a visual and audio learner and this program worked perfectly with my learning style. I started studying for my LCSW exam about 3 months out. I did each of the steps (modules) in this program in chunks, allowing myself to really digest the material. I enjoyed all the audios explaining the answers to test prep questions as well as the practices quizzes. The way everything is broken down into certain topics helped me to really understand things that could be on the exam. In addition, The Quick Studies were awesome to review over right before I took my exam. Amanda does a wonderful job not only explaining all the aspects of what to look for on the exam, and how the questions could be worded, but also how to mentally and emotionally prepare. The mock exams (85 and the 170) were extremely beneficial to take prior to the exam. Finally, seeing myself complete each step as I got closer to taking the test, really boosted my confidence, and made me feel more secure with feeling like I could pass. 10 out of 10 recommend to use this to help you prepare. You will not regret it.

I’ve used this program for both my masters level and clinical level exams and passed both of them on the first try. I was hesitant to buy the program again for my clinical exam, but glad I did- just for the peace of mind. The advice and instruction is so well thought out, organized, encouraging, easy to use, and effective. You get your moneys worth and I am very satisfied!!

I failed this test 3 times in 2015 and then i started to focus on addiction. I knew it was time for me to get my LCSW so i went with TDC. then covid hit and i had so much loss, took me a while to get through it. I reached back out and TDC login me right back in. they truly were with me until i passed! I passed the first time i took it after using TDC. I needed 103 and i scored 115

I felt confident after using your program. It was easy to follow and cover d so much! I passed on the first attempt! Thank you!

I passed! I studied for about 8 weeks with more intense study 4 weeks prior. I felt prepared for the test and found the practice tests very helpful. My exams/quizzes ranged from 75% to 90% on the quizzes. I felt nervous of course but tried to remember the tips Amanda gave. I brought fruit and apple juice and took a break. I felt confident going into it.

Wonderful study prep. Doesn't overload you with information and teaches how to think strategically to pass the exam. I passed on my first attempt.

I fully believe that TDC prepared me to be successful in the LSCW exam. The program was well thought out and provided a solid foundation for me to learn how to test and be ready. Thank you for the amazing program, your support for veterans and military family members, and most importantly the support to the social work field.

Thank you TDC for the curriculum. There were so much information provided, which helped me be fully prepared to pass the LCSW. I still can't believe it!

This exam has given me anxiety since day one of studying three years ago. I've paid for multiple different test prep services, and by far TDC prepared me the best for this exam! I missed my second attempt by 1 point last year and took a 9 month break. Coming back to the exam I didn't even know where to start! I feel overwhelmed and discouraged. The outline of study material from TDC was so nice to follow along with the videos and all of the practice questions really helped! I would highly recommend starting here if you experience any type of testing anxiety or struggle with exams! Thank you so much, I feel so grateful to have found this program!

I searched for a LCSW exam program that could help me prepare for the test. This program exceeded my expectations. It was organized, and perfect for an audio-visual learner like me. I passed the ASWB exam yesterday, first time I took it. I'm so grateful for this program and how it helped me. I am recommending it to all MSW graduates preparing for the exam. Thank you so much to the coaches!

I had taken the exam once before and missed by just 3 questions. I decided to use this as a study guide and felt so much more prepared for the clinical. The practice exams, study guides and mock exams are so immensely helpful and am so glad I bought this study course!

This helped build my knowledge and confidence! Thank you!!

I would recommend TDC to anyone looking to take the clinical exam! It helped me study in an organized and detailed manner that prepared me for the exam!

This course helped me finally pass my exam, on my third attempt. It’s so important to use the entire program and to study as much as possible. I recommend this program to anyone who’s taking the clinical exam!

I passed my LCSW exam yesterday! I began studying with the TDC Clinical program late March/early April. The last few weeks became hectic at work and I wasn't able to study as I had anticipated/planned. That meant that when I walked into my exam yesterday AM, I hadn't completed the whole study program, as I had ran out of time. I don't recommend this of course- definitely do the whole program, as I was nervous and not feeling confident as much as I would have, if I had completed the entire study system. But as mentioned- I passed! I believe this speaks to the effectiveness of the program. So while I didn't get through the whole program, I got through a large portion (about 75-80%) and all of that was valuable and essential for preparing me for the test. I'll recommend this program to colleagues and others who are struggling with what to study. The program takes the weight off of trying to piece together meaningful study material- & I felt it was not too much, not too little but just enough. TDC is the Goldilocks of study exam programs!

TDC was amazing, it over prepared me for the exam! I went in feeling prepared and full of knowledge. TDC does great with teaching how to go about each question, such as First/Next scenarios. I definitely recommend TDC!!

Thank you! Your audios were very helpful!

Thanks for all your support :)
