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?

There are 170 questions on the ASWB exam, with 150 questions used for scoring. The other 20 questions are used for possible additions to future ASWB exams. These are multiple-choice questions.

Course Reviews

After 6 years I finally decided to get serious about studying and purchased TDC! I’m happy to say that I was able to pass the exam on my first attempt! I feel that TDC truly prepared me for how to answer the questions on the test!

Thank you, TDC! I had so much anxiety about this exam literally putting it off for 3 years. The structure, the quizzes, mock exams, and pep talk helped ease my anxiety and get me through. The approach of thinking “what would Amanda do” as well as listing answers in order was my focus and I believe really helped me when thinking through the stem. The day of my exam the anxiety was still there and I did have thoughts running through my mind that I was going to fail but I again remembered that pep talk and quickly was back in the game. I highly recommend this program and I am so grateful I followed through!!

The TDC is a great program to really get Social Workers to think critically about difficult situations and scenerios, expand on thier skills and become more confident when taking the LCSW exam.

TDC helped me pass on my first attempt! I needed 103 correct and passed with 117. TDC makes the test feel less overwhelming and helps you organize your studying. The structure and information that TDC offered alleviated so much of my anxiety. I am grateful for this program!

I PASSED! Thank you TDC for your study program. I am a school social worker so I knew testing for my Clinical Social Work license was going to be a challenge. I appreciate how you map our your program and make it manageable to have a life and study. I bought your program because you were with us until we passed. The first attempt I failed by 5 points and I was devastated. After a couple months, I was ready to being reapplying and studying again. Appreciate being able to email coaches and get feedback. The two final mock exams and top 50 topics were key for me. I knew the material, but I had to learn how to apply it to possibly scenarios and all the FIRST and NEXT questions on the exam. The mock exams and top 50 topics helped me go into my test and feel so confident. THANK YOU for this program and being with us until we pass!

I used TDC to study for my LCSW Exam. It was a lot of material, especially since I was working full-time while studying. I do believe it helped my when I took the test, it helped build my confidence for sure.

I could not have done it with without the TDC! TDC’s material kept me organized and on task, no guessing. The combination of audio, handouts and quizzes helped me to better learn and retain the information due to the multiple ways it was presented. Thank you!

Great program to further aid in knowledge and comprehension.

I passed using this system after having took the exam once. This was the secret to me passing the exam by 10 points. It works, follow the plan!!

I had missed passing my first exam by 4 points the first time. I had been scheduled to take the exam again last March but it was cancelled due to covid. I had my exam again today and passed with 6 points over this time. I really credit this program for helping me to pass.

I was recommended this program after failing the clinical exam the first time. It is totally worth the money! I love structure and the way everything was organized and broken down so I wouldn't be overwhelmed was extremely helpful. Also the strategy for answering the different types of questions were very helpful.

I passed my LCSW exam today! 5/5 Recommend TDC! I love the simplicity of the program and that the program really narrows what info/topics are of upmost priority to study. This really helped me with not feeling so overwhelmed by verbiage/topics/terms. I appreciate the organization of TDC, made studying manageable and less daunting. Grateful for this program, I felt well prepared:)

Passed on the first try! Thanks TDC!

I cannot recommend this program enough. I am a FT social worker & mom- this program makes it so I am able to only study what I actually need to know. There were so many emotions that come with studying & prepping but by the time I got through a few exam questions I was surprised at how this program truly nails what it is you need to know & how you should approach it. I passed the first time & I am ecstatic! Worth every penny

Therapist Development Center is the place to go if you are nervous about passing your exam. My masters was not in interpersonal practice so I was missing a lot of material that would have been covered for this exam. Texas also doesn't allow you to take the exam until all supervision hours have been completed and it has been almost 6 years since I graduated wuth my masters degree. I was very nervous and the therapist development center allowed me to go into the exam with confidence. If you are worried about the price just know it is worth it!! I would recommend Therapist Development Center to everyone!

Thank you so much for your excellent course! I passed the first time. Needed 102 to pass and scored 108.
It was hard!!! I never could have done it without TDC.

I am an awful test taker and was so nervous for this test. After researching online I decided to purchase the course. I don't think I would have been able to pass without this course! I needed 103 to pass and I got 123! You really need to know how to think about the test rather than all the memorization. There were some memorization stuff on the actual test but majority was application. You can memorize every medication, every stage of development, everything.... but if you don't know how to answer the question you can fail! Thank you so much for Yirley answering my questions!!

Your audio lectures were the best. I’m an audio person and it really helped me prepare because I didn’t have much time to read being a mom of 3 and working full time.

I passed my LCSW clinical exam at 35 weeks pregnant, not running on all cylinders, experiencing pregnancy insomnia all due to the The Therapist Development Center study guide. It equipped me to pass even in less than ideal situation. Trust the plan. You will pass!

Great study prep program finally understood what I missed when took the LCSW exam the first time.
