LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
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 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.


How many questions on the ASWB clinical exam?

Course Reviews

So thankful that TDC was by my side. I passed the LCSW on my first attempt with more than enough room to spare. I found the audio and the 'Ask A Coach' features to be extremely helpful. I was so confident going into the exam that I ordered business cards a month ago.

When I took the LCSW exam without TDC and failed, I had felt prepared but did not have the confidence that TDC provided me with. Taking the exam the 2nd time I felt more confident and reviewing the subjects was extremely helpful. Loved the audio and quick studies!

TDC came most recommended by colleagues and supervisors and I now understand why. I used no other study materials and passed the exam on my first attempt with 89%! The online format was easy and convenient to use while the content is presented in a way that's not overwhelming. Using the TDC program I was able to walk in for the exam feeling confident and well-prepared. Thank you TDC!

Loved this program! They provide great real-life techniques that really work. I followed the steps and passed on the first attempt. I highly recommend the program!!!

I love TDC not only because the program breaks down the material into understandable and digestible language, but they are so supportive of the military/veteran community who choose this career field. My test says I needed 102 questions answered correctly to pass and I got 120 correct!!

This program was very organized and helpful in guiding me through the study process and preparing me for the actual test taking. I felt confident going into the test and ecstatic coming out with a pass! I performed about as well as I did in the mocks. Thanks for this program! Well worth it! Relieved to have my license on way!

I have never felt more prepared to take an exam. I have never had less anxiety in taking an exam. I learned SO much while studying with the materials and felt so prepared. I will recommend TDC to everyone I know in the social work field studying for exams because it was so worth it and I learned so much!

I found this program very helpful in the diverse ways it teaches the relevant materials (audio lectures, quick study reading material, mock tests) so that all types of learners are sure to gain the knowledge and confidence to pass their exam. I can also honestly say I found this study program a better reinforcement of and testimony to my clinical skills than the actual national exam, the questions on which were not as clear or comprehensive as the practice test and mock exams included in this program.

About a month out from my exam, I was feeling nervous and unprepared. I was studying by reading a book and wasn't comprehending much information. Two co workers told me about this program, and encouraged me to spend the money. Both these social workers passed their exams using this program. I bought the program, and I am happy to share, I passed my exam, on the first attempt, even cramming last minute. Everything in this program was thorough, and very helpful. Not only do you learn about topics, theories, DSM5, you learn by listening, writing ,quizzes and practice exams. I am so grateful my co workers recommended this program. Now I can begin my journey as a clinical social worker. :) Thank You!!

I have ADHD and have two main issues: inattention and prioritizing. I have always struggled with “first/next”and “most/best” questions. This course cut through the noise in my head and I truly think I’m now a better social worker as a result. This is Contact, logic, and test strategies. It’s everything. If you follow this to the letter and you allow your frustration to carry you to the next study topic, you will kick the crap out of this test. Thank you Amanda and Co!!!

After failing the test by 3 questions and then 5 questions the second time I took it, I was terrified to fail a third time and was almost sure I would as I have never been a strong test taker and always had a lot of anxiety. At the advisement of a few college friends, I finally spent the money for TDS and completed every bit of the program and passed by over 30 questions. I would recommend to anyone and am so thankful!

i wa so nervous leading up to the test day but the day of i was confident comfortable and I PASSED! First attempt and passed! Thank you TDC!

I am so happy that I was able to find this program. Prior to this program I took the exam using the boot camp study series and failed the exam. My friend recommended your program and I am so happy I gave it a try. From the first lesson I knew this was the right program… you make the content simple and easy to retain . I was able to remember more with the way you explained and connected it to real life . I passed on my second try thanks to your program!! Thank you!!!!

I am an older social worker who has been out of school for 10 years. I felt overwhelmed as I began studying for the LCSW-C exam. TDC was a lifesaver. The system helped me organize my time and kept me focused on what I needed to know. I recommend it highly. In fact, I have already told a friend from work.

I really enjoyed this program. I had difficulty organizing my studying and this program helped me. I failed the Lc exam once by 2 points before buying TDC! I passed scoring 119 points and needed 102 points on my 2nd try at this exam! Thx TDC!

It was incredibly helpful to not only take the practice tests, but to review and see TDC’s explanations as to the answers. It really helped me tackle the marked questions during the exam to clarify my reasoning/answers. I felt confident taking the exam, which is half the battle! Thank you for this wonderful program!

Thank you God, my friends and family, and TDC for EVERYTHING! I PASSED!!! TDC honestly prepared me so well for the exam that I took today. The tips and tricks that were discussed throughout the course were spot on. The practice exams were SO helpful ....I saw such similar questions that at one point I thought I was taking a TDC practice exam! Honestly, I would not have been able to do it without TDC. One last prepared to put in the time and effort to prepare for this exam. Take ALL the quizzes and mock tests and make sure you really understand the information because tricky questions still appeared on the exam! With your dedication, time, and TDC, you will feel so prepared for the exam! I kept saying throughout the exam "ATTACK THE TEST" just like Amanda told us to! Again thank you from the bottom of my heart! :)

This course provided organized information on which important concepts to know within the social work practice realm for the LCSW exam. This course allowed for many opportunities to practice test-like questions so to help me feel confident in knowing how to take the test and not get psychologically discouraged or over-think. I credit this program's structure and guidance to me passing the LCSW test.
