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.

Course Reviews

Taking the the practice course made me feel confident on test day! The quizzes and Mock exams are a great way to measure your progress.

I really felt that TDC prepared me to became very familiar with the material and being able to distinguish the differentials with the diagnoses, symptoms, and other information. From the study material I was able to narrow down to the correct answer.

I was so nervous and convinced was not passing towards the end of the exam, some questions were clean cut and some were confusing because the top two answers were close. I imagined the clients sitting in front of me and being in the situation, like TDC recommended and that really helped. Trust your gut! I did go back and changed 3 answers but then decided not too unless I was 100 percent sure to do so. I'm glad I didn't change more, I needed 102 to pass I got 107 ! TDC was the best choice and the only study material I used, I highly recommend them. I've dreamt of this day for many years and I'm finally here. You will too! I wish you the best of luck !

I tried other programs also but feel like TDC was the most thorough and on point with the information given, paralleling the exam questions.

This is an excellent program and helped me feel fully prepared for the exam. The course has the bonus of not just preparation, but to present a helpful refresher in best practices in social work. I wouldn't let any friends take the exam without using TDC.

TBD prepared me well for the Clinical Exam! All the material that was covered in the program was reflected similarly on the exam. I couldn't be more thankful for this study course! I only wish they had a mobile app, which I'm sure will be coming soon!

After missing the exam by 1 question 90 days ago, I went on a search for a program to increase my knowledge and confidence for the exam. When I found the TDC website, I liked what others have said and the diversity in your program style. I have and will continue to highly recommend this program. Thanks and God bless!

The exam was very difficult but by using the test taking methods taught in the program I was able to pass! All the study material reviewed in the program were relevant to the exam.

I enjoyed the course and found the material to be well explained and easy to understand. When taking the exam I felt most questions were about logical thinking and some of that I was not able to really prepare more through TDC and had to "tease it out" myself but I overall felt that TDC was very helpful.

I am SO happy I passed! I needed 102 correct and got 122 correct. I studied for a long time - only because of Covid. My test was initially canceled and then I had my kids home which was hard. So I feel really happy to finally have this behind me!

I found it so helpful to take ALL the practice exams TDC provides. Such an active way of learning and really helped me, while I was also working two jobs.

I highly recommend this course! I tried other test prep materials and this was the best one I found!

I passed my LCSW today on my first attempt. Thank the Lord and TDC! I used TDC for my Law and Ethics, LMSW and the LCSW test prep and they've never let me down. I passed all three on my first attempt. A special thank you to Heidi, a TDC coach, who promptly answered several of my questions on rationales and helped me sort through some of my confusion. I am so greatful right now!

I passed on my second try for the licensed clinical social work exam in California. I used a different program the first time I took the test and did not feel as prepared (I missed by 4 points). There were other COVID19 related stressors when I took the exam for my first try, but I think it really came down to TDC focusing in on what to study and how to think about the test questions. I believe their questions mimic the real exam questions better than the other study materials I had purchased.

Thank you for being so flexible as my date changed for my exam so many times.

Just passed yesterday! Heidi was very helpful and responded with clear details to all my questions. The ability to ask the coach questions was super accommodating. Thank you for this study guide!!

it was a great program and I already recommended it to other friends! I actually ended up being more than prepared.

TDC helped me feel confident to take both the Law & Ethics and the Clinical exam. Even though I was nervous the day of, seeing questions like ones I had answered multiple times previously helped with my anxiety! I would definitely recommend TDC to any budding social workers looking for some material to help prepare for either test.

I felt confident walking into the testing center knowing that I had all that I needed to know thanks to TDC! I could not have been better prepared!

TDC helped me pass my ASWB Clinical Exam. I chose to complete the program within 5 weeks and took th exam right away. Aside from doing the ASWB mock exam, I only used TDC materials and I did very, very well on my first try with this exam. They do a wonderful job of helping you get inside the mind of these questions. They support you through anxiety you may have around certain questions and it was overall an amazing learning experience. I highly, highly, highly recommend you use their programs for whichever test you need to prepare for!
