Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2021 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 2021 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, 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 Clincal 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 found TDC very useful for my preparation. I would encourage everyone to memorize the quick studies before anything else. TDC is a great investment to prepare for your LCSW exam.

Very easy to understand not only the information but how to utilize it to generalize. Structured very well.

TDC was the best investment decision ever. I have horrible test anxiety and had no idea where to begin with my studies. I graduated with my Masters degree in 2017 and I needed to refresh my mind, but didn’t know where to start. I took the plunge and bought TDC because I saw it as an investment to my career and didn’t want to take this exam more than once. The program gives you everything you need to know and the layout helped me prioritize my time wisely. A lot of other prep programs I took focused on acronyms and not a lot on actual content or how to think critically. TDC is very different in their approach and actually gets straight to the point of what you need to know and how to think critically. Thank you TDC for helping me pass my exam!

This is my TESTIMONY! I took my LSW exam 20 years ago and failed it twice. After dealing with depression, it was nearly impossible for me to drum up the confidence to take the test again. I worked in care management for 15 years. Then in 2019, my life changed dramatically. I had to take my test! In Oct 2019, I heard about TDC and purchased the program. Immediately - I started learning and retaining the material. In my prayer devotional dated January 21, 2020, I said I wanted to take and pass both LSW and LCSW exams in 2020! In June 2020, I took the LSW exam and PASSED- after 20 years!! While studying for my LSW exam, I learned that my home state of NJ was in the last year of allowing Social Workers to take their LCSW exam before all their clinical hours were accumulated. After passing the LSW exam, I immediately signed up to get approval to sit for the LCSW and was able to schedule my test on December 28, 2020! I purchased the TDC LCSW program and once again found it to be an amazing product. And on December 28, 2020, I PASSED my LCSW!! My devotional entry from Jan 2020 became a reality!! I give God all the Glory, may thanks to family and friends who stood by me. But I could not have learned or been prepared for these exams without the TDC program! Truly Worth Every Penny!! Thank you TDC for everything!!

Passed it on my first try! This is the only thing I studied ... I think the mock exams were the most helpful. Couldn’t have done it without this program! Thank you TDC!

Thank you TDC!
I felt very confident and prepared to take the exam after going through the program.

I felt very well prepared after using TDC. I didn't know what to expect, but the test questions felt very similar to the practice material, so it helped me feel comfortable from the start of the test. And Amanda's day-of test prep advice, such as taking a break at question 85, preparing with snacks, etc., was very helpful, and allowed me to enter the test with more confidence.

This is beyond the most amazing, comprehensive, and accurate study material on the market today! It is designed for EVERY Learning style. This was my very 1st time taking the LCSW Exam and not only did I pass I passed with CONFIDENCE!

Although this course is expensive and I am a visual learner, I am so happy with my decision to complete it. If you told me that I would pay about $300 and pass on my first try, I would say that's a no brainer given the stress and money a second exam would bring. Additionally, in taking the course, I found it helped me get back into the practice of having to focus for hours like the actual exam calls for. I loved that it had handouts to complete notes and I adapted the learning by illustrating on these and creating flashcards. The questions were challenging and I am happy that they were overall slightly more difficult than the actual exam. I know this is a leap of faith in believing this program and I am glad that I took it.

I would not have passed without TDC without a doubt! I went through the program twice, I took both Mock exams (got a 74) both times. So I was consistent at least:) I did think of Amanda in my head multiple times and was able to refocus. I think taking both Mock exams pushed me, knowing I had passed them gave me confidence that I could pass. Thank you!!!!

God is good coupled with TDC!!! I am so happy that I purchased TDC. I loved listening to the audio because it allowed me to multitask. Whether driving in my car or cooking at home. The program is very structured which helped me to focus even more. The practice exams were very helpful to include the full mock exams. I would recommend TDC to anyone wanting to pass their exam.

I passed. I recommend you spend a great deal of time studying how the exam was created, type of questions, all the processes to creating questions and the overall exam.

2 for 2! Passed my LMSW and LCSW Exams the first time.

TDC has been amazing; I used it for LMSW and LCSW exams and I passed both on my first attempt. With TDC your success is guaranteed!

I really appreciated the guided support with the TCD Program. I felt so overwhelmed with how to study for the LCSW exam- this program was a lifesaver! The study materials are broken down in a way that's accessible for all learners. There are also so many tips and tricks built into the lectures. I ended up scoring significantly higher on the official exam than I did in any of my mock exams and quizzes. I highly recommend this program!

This program not only helped with the exam but made me a better therapist. I learned a lot of things that were not covered in my MSW program. I was happy that I passed by a good margin (needed 103 and scored 122). Taking a food break and applying for accommodations was very helpful. The exam had little recall questions but TDC helped me with how I thought about the problems. Preparing for this exam was an extremely challenging time, it pushed me emotionally to face fears of failure. Feels great to be DONE!

I passed on my first attempt! I felt completely prepared for the test. I used the ASWB book a little but mostly relied on the TDC program to guide the content and techniques I needed to pass and it worked! The majority of my test was first, next, most questions. I probably listened to all the audible lectures at least twice and the code of ethics at least three times! I practiced a lot of self care for the days leading up to the exam-working out, eating right, mediating and getting quality sleep. Thank you TDC!

TDC is an excellent course! I have been an anxious test taker for my entire life and this program truly put me at ease. It provided a systematic approach and offered styles for every learner. I only had a four week time period to study and the program allowed me to create an organized study schedule. I felt more confident than expected going into the exam and passed on the first try. I will recommend this program to my colleagues and thank you TDC!

Hearing Amanda’s voice and learning the process of how to adequately think during this test was necessary for this exam. Couldn’t imagine doing it without TDC

It has been quite a few years since I took my LMSW exam so the idea of sorting through the information to determine what to study for the LCSW exam was daunting. After exploring several options, I decided to narrow my focus to this program and trust it would steer me to the right info. It was perfect. Most importantly, it reminded me how to think and focus my attention. It truly saved me hours of extra memorization of unnecessary info. For this reason, the program exceeded my expectations and I passed on the first attempt.
