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!).

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

This program was invaluable helpful. It broke down the material and helped me feel prepare to attack this exam. In addition to helping me pass thee exam, I feel like this helped me develop as a social worker.

The program prepared me when exam day came. I felt confident and even in areas of weakness knew how to think to find the best answer. I also purchased the tutoring with Heidi and was able to clear up any uncertainty toward the end of studying. 10/10 would recommend!

I felt like I learned more with this program than I did in gradschool. It went over and in depth on so many different topics that I may not ever had learned about due to not being in that category or field of social work. I felt like I learned the reasoning of how to approach questions and situations without just memorizing an answer. I currently am a school social worker and hope to one day work in private practice, so this program allowed me to see some different scenarios I may face and already planted the seed of how I should approach them. I wish these ladies would do other courses, not just for the exam, but how to apply in practice because they were so thorough and great teachers.

The TDC study material for the LCSW examine was thorough and spot on. I re-learned a lot of Macro, policy and community organizing information that I selectively forgot since I focus on micro approaches. The TDC mock examines and mini mock exams were challenging and helped me prepare for "how to think" during the actual exam. The ASWB practice exam and actual exam were not nearly as well-written as the TDC test material. I do wish that some of the TDC exam material mimicked the ASWB exam a bit more. I found that the ASWB exam questions were vague and often did not make sense, where with the TDC material, I was able to work through finding the correct answer because of how well-written the TDC questions were. Overall, I highly recommend TDC exam prep. I felt confident in my knowledge going into the exam.

TDC does a really great job at providing and breaking down all the information needed to prepare for the exam!

I have used TDC for my LSW and LCSW exams and passed on the first try with each. I recently successfully passed my LCSW exam on 6/1/22. I felt prepared due to the test taking strategies and detailed review of the material. I also recommended TDC to my friend who also utilized TDC and passed on the first try for her LCSW exam as well. I HIGHLY recommend this program and if you are reading this review PLEASE consider this program as an option for your study program. So, best of luck and thank you TDC for being a part of the process!

Just passed my LCSW!!!! Relieved and pumped would be an understatement. Thank you for providing this program to help me truly understand how to pass this exam. The 2 full mock exams helped me the most in passing because it built my capacity to endure 4 hours , so I highly recommend not skipping those! Good luck, you can do it!

By far the best decision. For my LMSW i purchased other material and still did not feel confident when taking the exam. With my LCSW I knew I needed something more. i started doing research and asking around and that's how I discovered TDC. I learned so much more than I thought I would. The amount of material covered, notes taken, and information provided is so helpful. The test preparation as a whole was reassuring. I have recommended it to every person so far that has asked me about the exam and what I used to study and my overall experience. I would not have passed without TDC! Especially not on the first try. I still can't believe it! Thank you TDC!

The most important lecture is “How to think for the exam”. If you absorb the thinking style they teach and bring it with you to the test, you will be set!

Wow! The LCSW Exam Prep is well worth the money. I truly believe I passed thanks to this program. I will admit, I condensed the program into a much shorter time period to prepare for the test. While I do not recommend this and recommend completing the program in the timeline they set up for you, the program really helped me get ready for the test even in a shorter period of time. I love all the variety of options they have to teach you things including audio lectures, quick studies, practice quizzes, tests, etc. I would listen to the audio lectures during down time or during car rides and found it extremely helpful to have another form of learning where I could listen to something, rather than just having to read everything. All of the practice quizzes, tests, and mock exams were critical in helping me learn and figure out if I was ready for the exam. I highly recommend taking the practice quizzes and tests as many times as you can. This program really taught me how to prepare to take this kind of test, such as learning how to figure out what they would be looking for in an answer, how to rule out certain options, etc. I also felt like it just taught me so much about a variety of topics, but in a concise manner where it wasn't overwhelming. I highly recommend this to anybody preparing for their LCSW exam!

Audios are very helpful to emulate the teaching process, loved the structure and organization of the material. Beginning my studying I felt overwhelmed and didn't know where to begin, TDC provided a clear path on how to study without it consuming my mind and time.

This program helped me tremendously! The mock exams, quizzes and practice tests gave me the best preparation! I listened to the pep talk driving on the way to the exam and it was EXACTLY what I needed to feel successfully equipped! Thank you so much for this program!

Phenomenal program! I only had about 2-3 weeks to study for the ASWB, and this program prepared me exceptionally well for the test. I found the lectures to be the most helpful part of the program as I was able to listen throughout the day.

This is the most accurate and informative social work study course I have come across. The material is precise, accurate, super informative and organized. The questions are the closest to the exact exam. I have looked at many test prep study questions. I have taken the ASWB practice exam and these questions helped most and were most comparable to the ASWB questions. I am so happy I found you and forever grateful for your help in my passing of the clinical social work exam.

This is an excellent site to help you prepare for the examination. I recommend this site to everyone sitting for their LMSW or LCSW

I waited 12 years after being approved to sit for the LCSW test before I got the confidence to take it. I had not passed my LMSW on the first attempt and was worried that the LCSW would be harder. I am so thankful that I found out about TDC. I am more or an auditory learner which TDC has a great amount of materials to listen to. There wasn't anything on the test that wasn't covered in the material that was given through the program. I felt that other companies study guides are often overwhelming with information that isn't necessarily needed for the exam. I followed the guide very closely and passed on my first try! I highly recommend TDC for anyone prepping for their exam!

I walked into the exam ready, calm and confident! The study schedule and material adequately prepared me for the exam, and I was so grateful for the coaching because I knew when to take a break, eat a banana and drink juice before returning to the test. It was just like taking the Mock exams, and I confidently read the questions out loud several times and went about my business! I am happy that I passed this at one seating. Thank you, TDC!

Thank you so much for your help! This program significantly helped me pass the exam, would definitely recommend to a friend.

I love how this study course provides a combination of written and audio formats. I was able to listen to the audios on repeat during some long trips I took while preparing for the exam and it really helped to seal the material. On the day of the exam, I felt confident and prepared and passed with flying colors using the strategies taught in this course.

This program really works in preparing you in passing the test. Listening to the lectures while driving and taking exams built confidence that I could pass the exam. I appreciate the help, the step by step preparation to help me pass the exam. This program also built my confidence that I could pass the exam, thank you TDC!!!
