LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2020 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 2020 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 with 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. 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 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

Thank you TDC for all of your guidance and quick assistance. I truly appreciate your dedication to veterans and service members.

I felt very prepared after using this program. The test felt just like the mock full exams. I highly recommend using TCD.

This was my third time using TDC. My first was for the Law and Ethics exam. I had to fly from the Middle East to California to take the exam, I didn't have the time, energy or cash to fail. I passed. When I moved to Hawaii, I used TDC for my Masters exam. As a military spouse, I didn't have the time to fail. I used TDC and passed on my first time. Of course when I finally had collected enough hours to sit for the ASWB I was going to use TDC, any other test prep after two successful exams would be silly to use! At the last minute I changed my test date in June 2020. I wanted to find a test date that was sooner than Sept. I crammed for 9 days and ended up missing the passing score by 5 points. Those 9 days were awful, I ate horrible junk food, didn't sleep, rushed through the lectures and didn't use all the test prep material. I was overly confident and didn't prepare for the amount of anxiety I would have when testing in a face mask during a global pandemic. Failing was awful! However, I had 90 days to reset. I started a healthy eating program. I started working out. I set a time for studying each day and it was never over 2 hours a day. I took time off from studying and enjoyed my kids and family. 30 days before my test I followed the program. I did every single thing Amanda told me to do. I highlighted, I wrote notes, I ate healthy, and I worked on my anxiety. I went through the program twice in those 90 days. I did mock exams with a mask on and I went into the exam with confidence in my training, education and my hard work. I PASSED! The confidence I gained during the program set me up to open my own private practice and gave me the confidence in my ability to work with clients. Thank you TDC. Warmest regards, Crystal

I had taken the exam three times before I purchased your program. I paid for another program that did not help my process, The program was filled with tricks to use, and acronyms to remember in order to answer questions correctly, the tactics did not work on the exam. TDC helped me to learn material but more importantly taught me how to think when answering the questions. Thank You so much!

This program is all you need to pass your exam.

I would not have been able to pass without this program. The program covered every possible subject the test asked. I felt like alot of the questions on the exam were very similar to the test questions on the website. The most important key to passing was my ability to comprehend what the test question was asking and with the support of the coach I was able to gain more clarification on questions I was confused on. I have highly recommended the program to other peers.

I have test anxiety but with the help of this system I went into the test confident that I was going to do it! I played back in my head the different audios in the system and found it beneficial over all.

Just get it! This system made all the difference. I passed my first time.

There just aren't enough Thank YOUs!!! I went through the course twice and re-reviewed my notes as often as possible. The program truly covers all topics/subject matters in a way that's not overwhelming but most importantly, the program teaches you how to think through the exam. I'm very appreciative and will always recommend this program to anyone who asks how I studied/passed.

Before TDC I didn't feel like I had a direction or confidence on how to study for the test. Once I purchased the program and followed the study plan I felt prepared. I was able to pass on my first try! I was required to get 103 right to pass and ended up with 118.

This course made it easy, organized, and even fun to study

I took the exam two times in the past and decided to give TDC a try. I Eventually passed the exam this Saturday. I listen to the audios every chance I get. Whether you are a visual learner or a auditory learner the program have materials for your learning styles. I like the audio better because the speaker goes on to give examples that are as they come to mind. During the exam I can just hear Amanda's voice in my head. I love the macro audio it was everything I needed and was sure present on the test. I am glad I chose this program., Invest in this exam with TDC because in the end it worked out. I never got a tutor I just listen to the top 50 topics and those were valuable to me passing the exam.

I had previously taken an exam prep course through a different company and the study materials were extremely overwhelming to me and I was unable to organize all the information in a way that made sense and assisted me in learning what I needed to know. TDC came highly recommended by a friend and I gave it a try and am so grateful I did. TDC's program decreased my level of text anxiety tremendously by breaking the information down into manageable parts, providing lectures and tips/techniques to use during the exam. I took my exam this past Friday and passed on the first try! This program prepared me in ways that left me feeling that I was more in control of the exam than the exam was in control of me. I would HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone preparing for the exam. Thank you for everything!

TDC is a good study guide. The mock tests are inline with actual exam. The DSM "what's the difference" is all you need to study for that portion of the text. A lot of good tips mentioned throughout the course.

After not passing my LCSW exam on the first attempt, I felt completely defeated. I had paid for and taken a 2-day workshop with a nationally recognized exam prep instructor, I had paid for online study groups and study resources through other instructors I came across on YouTube. I felt confident going in my first time, so I did not know what else I could do differently to prepare for my second attempt. After hearing many others find success on their exam after using TDC, I decided to try it. The wonderful thing about TDC is that - just like they state - they prepare you with everything you need and nothing you don't. I realized that the other prep courses/resources I had used were bombarding me with too much information that took away my focus from what truly mattered. TDC coaches were always available to assist whenever I had questions or concerns. I am proud to say I passed my exam yesterday and owe so much of that success to TDC. I highly recommend it to everyone preparing for their exams. I only wish I would have used them before my first attempt!! Thank you TDC!!!

This study guide made studying for my LCSW exam so much easier! I passed on my first attempt yesterday! :) I love that it gave you a timeline to use and told you exactly what you should study. I also think the material wasn't overwhelming and gave you just enough knowledge to answer the questions right. The most helpful thing by far was the mock exams and the explanations for each question. The majority of the questions on my exam were "FIRST/NEXT" and "MOST important" questions so the mock exams really helped me prepare for those. This program was recommended to me by a co-worker and I definitely recommend it to anyone needing to study for the exam!

I passed my test on the first try! This program offered such great preparation to ease my anxiety and help me to really know what to expect for the exam. I will be recommending this study system to everyone I know!

This 63 year old brain passed the first time! I received my MSW in 2016, and finally garnered all my hours this year. I used this course for 3 months before testing, and followed it word for word. I scored very similar on the Moc exams as I did on the clinical exam. The test was challenging, and I could hear Amanda in my brain- going through the steps. I passed with 18 points to spare. I highly recommend this course.

I owe all of my thanks and more to TDC for helping me pass my LCSW exam on my first attempt! I had initially approached studying on my own, without the help of a study system, and I found myself becoming increasingly overwhelmed with the lack of direction in my approach. I chose to sign up for this program and I am SO glad I did. Not only did I feel TDC over-prepared me for the actual exam, but I feel there are so many transferable skills that I look forward to implementing into my future practice as a social worker! Thank you TDC!

I passed on my first go, and really consider TDC's study program to be a big reason. Using the lectures on the exam's Top 50 Topics, along with the practice exams really helped me notice my weak areas and focus my attention to them in my last few weeks of studying.
