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 memorize. 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 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 Exam Prep program 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 Exam Prep can be challenging with so many options - books, workshops, apps and other on-line 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

This program has been so useful and effective. I have passed two exams using TDC and I plan to return for continuing education credits now that I am licensed!

A great program that is comprehensive and prepares you thoroughly for the exam. The practice exams are especially helpful to prepare for the exam.

I never expected to be out of the mental health field at all, but I ended up staying home and homeschooling my 3 children for 23 years. It's now been 26 years since I completed my MSW and I was terrified to take the licensure exam. I used the TDC program exactly as designed, went through it all twice, and then testing was put on hold due to COVID-19. TDC quickly extended my access to the materials to accommodate the close of the testing centers. I used the time to take a break and then review again, and I passed with plenty of margin to spare. My results were exactly an average of the 2 full TDC practice tests. I cried openly in the test center, and I'm sure people thought I'd failed something! Thank you, TDC for designing this thorough study system that not only presented the necessary material, but also taught me how to think for this test. I am forever grateful!!!

I started studying in January and then took a break when Covid-19 took over. In the midst of it all, somehow my application to take the exam was approved and I had 3 weeks to finish studying after taking 2 months off! I used Amanda's lectures and did the self quizzes over again and was surprised to see how much I had retained. I took the exam and passed after reviewing the course work for only 3 weeks. The information stuck from my first study months! Thank you TDC!

The LCSW is a stressful exam to prepare for whether you're plate is full or you have nothing but time to study. Two things everybody has in common is waiting period in between exam attempts and the cost of the exam. It's not CHEAP! With so much material to cover it can be stressful to organize and prioritize areas of focus. TDC took away a lot of this stress. Their program is planned out for you by organizing the material into steps and providing multiple methods of learning. They deliver the study material in audio format, study guides, quizzes, and test. They also provide material via weekly blogs and one-on-one coaching assistance. I found the whole system to be well planned out and easy to use. While I failed my first attempt by one question, I passed my second attempt. I attribute my success to the preparation TDC provided me.

It finally happened! After hard work, perseverance and being patient with myself, I passed the LCSW exam (second time is a charm).
Unfortunately, I don't have many words to describe the wonderful emotions I am feeling.
TDC is a great study material program that got me prepared for the LCSW! The audio lessons and practice exams helped to shape my mind to get into study mode.
The key is to study 'how to take the exam' - the knowledge is already there (through TDC study materials)
Thank You to TDC for allowing the free extensions - I think I requested an extension at least 100 times!
I have and will continue to recommend TDC to my friends or anyone that asks me.

TDC hands down is the best study program for preparing for the LCSW . I failed by one point the first time I took the exam, I utilized the study material two times the whole way through but did not utilize the coaching resource. When preparing for the second time , I used the coach and she got me through, I could hear her saying things in my head during the test and passed by 9 points over ! Thanks again !!!

This course was well organized and supportive in helping me prepare for and pass the clinical exam. I felt confident going into the exam that I could not have been more prepared. Thank you!

Well prepared as a result of using this program. I passed on the first time.

I cannot thank TDC enough for providing me with the right information to study! I took and failed the test twice before using the program and could not have passed without TDC. I truly feel like I grasped the information and able to apply all the terms and concepts now. Thank you, thank you!!

I passed and you can too! Follow the study outline/structure, believe in yourself, and believe in the study material TDC provides! Believe and you will achieve!

TDC is simply far more superior than any other program including ASWB, Pocket Prep, Apgar, and Phillip's videos on Youtube. The reason I say that because these other program LITERALLY freaked me out because they made feel there were far more items that I needed to learn. That is NOT true. These other programs go into far more details than needed. They bombard you with so much more than you should be preparing for.

TDC on the other hand, they know what they're tlaking about.
Their approach is on point.
Their organization is on point.
Their questions is on point.
Their quizzes are on point.
Their tests are extremely comparable.
Amanda's audios are on point.
I literally can't stress her enough.

Today, when I went to the exam, I literally took her in there with me. Well, that's what she told me at least lol. Her final lecture is a pep talk and she tells you to take her in there with you for imaginary consults. Yes, sounds delusional, but it worked! WWAD (what would amanda do?) lol The reason behind this, is because after listening to the entire program and relistening it to it again, she sort of resonates in your mind. And that PRECISELY is what helps you to logically choose the right answer.

She was amazing. Her team (idk what their names are) but they were amazing too cuz they responded to the questions almost instantly. Thank you all for helping me kickstart my career. I'd love to work for you guys in the future too. Not sure how but this was the best learning process!

I failed taking exam the first time. Truly such a hard blow and was terrified of failing again. I took the ASWB course and felt that the one day prep course was not enough. This program helped with my exam anxiety and really taught me ways to approach each question. Other programs would say look for buzz words but that’s not the case. Each question you need to read throughly and ask yourself what would TDC say about this question. I walked into the exam center ready to pass and I did!!

It was certainly overwhelming trying to gather information to study for the exam. After I heard about the Therapist Development, I looked into the program and was relieved to find something that was structured. I liked that there was a calendar to follow, study sheets, audio rational, and the quizzes. I believe I wouldn't have been as confident to pass the test otherwise. Thank you!

In 2015 in Ohio, social workers could take the clinical exam immediately after graduation. That has changed, and masters level social workers must now take the masters exam to practice, and the clinical exam for independent licensure. I know many who took the exams, including myself, and have struggled to pass, or have not passed it. Today, I took the clinical exam for my final try (Ohio only allows 4), and passed. I felt the exam was difficult, and I was stunned when I passed it. I used the TDC reasoning for answering the questions, especially the "first" and "best" questions.

I cannot express enough gratitude to the TDC. I could not have passed without your help. I will recommend your program to my friends/colleagues who have struggled with passing the clinical exam.

Thank you so much.
Pamela D. Leslie, a new LISW

I completed the test on the first attempt after using TDC study materials. It was a useful tool in learning about the processes to gain the right answer.

I passed the ASWB exam on my first try! This was with a pandemic going on and a mini panic attack two questions in. TDC was thorough and covered a lot of different areas. As long as you follow their formula and take in all the tips you are provided with, there is a good chance you will do well. I really appreciated the TDC team for all the support they have provided during these unprecedented times as they extended the expiration date for the course and provided tips on how to overcome it. Thank you TDC for all your help! This new LCSW truly appreciates it :)

Passed on my first attempt. I needed 102 to pass and got 121. My original test in March was canceled and so was my April date. I continued to review intermittently but my reschedule date was July so I wasn't too diligent. Working from home with a 1 year old I didn't have that much time to keep up with it aside from the occasional review on the weekend. April 28th I was notified there was availability to test 5/1 and I jumped on it, I reviewed everything one last time and I felt as prepared as I could have. I definitely feel that TDC prepares you for the types of questions and teaches you how to walk yourself through all the possible options. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I passed on May 13, 2020 on my first try! I was delighted with TDC. I would highly TDC!
Thank you for all your assistance and guidance.

I was extremely nervous about passing my test (as I'm sure everyone typically is!) and I knew that I needed a structured program to help me pass. I am so glad that I invested in TDC, it was worth it! Obviously, you have to do your part in studying the material, but TDC makes it so easy to know exactly what you should focus on and how to be successful in the learning process. I can't express how much everyone needs this! I have encouraged all of my fellow colleagues to invest in TDC if they want to pass their exam. THANK YOU TDC!!!
