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

I was so nervous to take the clinical exam. I had a few friends that had taken the exam and they all had their own opinions on how to best study for the program. I knew that I needed a structured study guide and I had hoped to find something with audio. When I came across this program and read the reviews, I knew that I needed to try this program. When I began reviewing the material, I felt so relieved to see the structure, audio, quizzes, and mock exams. I followed the study program over about 2 months and did "okay" in the final mock exams, scoring a 73 and 74. I was so nervous because the program recommended a 75 prior to taking the exam. I worked with Heidi to build my confidence and retook as many quizzes and reviews as I could. I took the exam on 10/26/19 and when I sat down and started felt a sense of confidence because I knew that I had done everything I could to pass and I applied the steps that the program suggests. I ended scoring well over what I needed and completed the exam in about 2 hours and 45 minutes. THANK YOU, TDC!

I have been in the field of Social Work or 20 years and took the LCSW exam 17 years ago and missed a passing score by two points. I was devastated. I have severe test anxiety and put off for many years due to the stress and anxiety of the thought about taking the test again. Then I decided I would finally take it again about a year ago or so. The feature that you can stay with TDC until you pass is super helpful. I had to delay taking the test due to some extenuating life circumstances more than once. In Sept 2019 I decide to face my fears and set a date for the test which was 11/1/19. I studied for 8 weeks leading up to the test. I was nervous that studying with TDC alone would not be enough. However, I did the entire study system as recommended including all of the mocks. You'll be surprised how much you can learn from your mistakes on the mocks. I went through the program twice and felt throughly prepared. I also utilized the coaching that they have available with questions I had. The response to questions was really prompt and the coach really helped me with choosing the right answer on the first/next questions. I am happy to say that I PASSED!! Every area on the real exam was covered by TDC. I was so pleased with this system. I have already recommended it to a friend who passed his test yesterday. Thank you so much to the entire TDC team. I am beyond grateful. I could not have done it without you.

I Passed ASWB-LCSW Clinical Examination on 11/4/2019. TDC system was very significant in keeping myself organized and study only what is required for the test. TDC gave clear understanding of the 50 topics. I loved the Macro topic which showed in the examination. I highly recommend using TDC study system and follow what Amanda would do for the first, best and least interventions questions. Keep up the great job TDC!

Thank you to TDC for offering this course to Veterans free of charge. I was already licensed in the state of CA since 2007, had been in the military as an Active Duty Social Worker from 2011-2017, and recently PCS'd with my husband to VA for his new duty station. Since CA did not require the National Exam until 2015 and all states do not offer reciprocity, as a military spouse, I felt discouraged about having to restudy and repay for licensure in another state, on top of the study materials for the ASWB exam. Ironically, 3 of my supervisees that I have had in the past few years, all took the TDC and passed all their required exams on the first try. Although I was upset about having to take the ASWB, I found that after almost two decades in Social Work, the TDC study course for the ASWB Clinical Exam was more comprehensive than any education course or study material I had previously completed. I actually enjoyed listening to all the modules and studying! Thank you again TDC for making this process just that much less stressful. The portion on how to think for the exam was life changing and I wish I had taken this course before I started college!

Thank you TDC! I was very intimidated by the thought of the exam. Your course helped me pass on the first attmept. The lectures were very helpful. The information was broken down in a way that wasn't overwhelming. I went into the exam feeling confident and ready. I would highly recommend this course!

I was overwhelmed by the amount of information I felt I needed to study to prepare for the test. I was having a difficult time figuring out how to start getting organized and my friend recommended this program. I really felt the program was helpful and straightforward. The Top 50 and Study Guides were really beneficial. The sample quizzes and tests were helpful although I didn't take the final two mock exams. The DSM 5 "What's the Difference" ended up being pretty helpful for the final exam. I passed on my first attempt! Thank you!

It was a great experience. I was confident going to take the test! I was encouraged by a friend who had used the program and passed the test. I am so grateful for TDC! I heard Amanda’s voice in my head helping me make the right reasoning decision ! Well worth the $$!

Thanks much for this great course you guys. I pushed my score up on the final exam by about 15 points from your first LCSW pre-test, which put me over the edge. I am very grateful to you all (especially in allowing me extended access to the site for an extra month) and will recommend this course to others!

I used the TDC for the Law & Ethics portion of the exam (I passed it on the first attempt). I passed the ASWB exam this afternoon (also my first attempt)! My exam required 103 correct answers and I answered 121 questions correctly. This exam prep is unbelievably helpful - I wouldn't have passed the exam without it. I was SUPER anxious to take this exam, but after taking it, I realize how much this program truly prepped me for the real exam. I would not hesitate to use this program to help you study. A word of advise: If you're a more anxious person, read the testimonials a couple days before going into the test - it helped me feel more confident going into the exam.

Thank you to Amanda & the team for this!

I would highly recommend this training! It helps with understanding how to answer the questions, but it also shifted my focus in thinking more like a social worker. I was very relaxed and confident throughout the exam.

Hello there,

I took the clinical examination on Friday, 11/1/19 and passed. Honestly, I am still in shock that I passed because I work at DCFS and primarily do case management services and shifting my mind to think like a clinician was very challenging for me. Having said that, I did it and I am feeling very proud of myself. I would most defiantly recommend this program to anyone. Thank you!

I am very pleased with TDC. The key is to TRUST the process. I followed the program (twice) and took all their suggestions and advice and I did very well on the exam. Reviewing my wrong answers on the mock exams were extremely helpful and all the short quizzes helped with recall knowledge. The portion about HOW to take the exam is SO so important, as doing well takes some strategy. I would highly recommend TDC to anyone.

I passed the Clinical exam on my third try! TDC is well-rounded and very structured which helped with my test anxiety. I emailed the coaches when I had a question or needed support, went through the program twice, had Amanda in my head, imagined the client in my office, etc etc ALL the things TDC prepares you for! I highly recommend this program! Thanks TDC!

I felt so prepared for the LCSW exam by using Therapist Development Center's program. I love that this system takes into account how people learn and doesn't require excessive and overwhelming memorization. All of the practice tests were super helpful and I felt very confident going into the exam.

TDC was a lifesaver!! When I initially started to study for this test, I had no idea where to start. The structure and different study methods were so helpful. I passed my Clinical exam on the first time and felt so prepared and confident going in! I would definitely recommend TDC to everyone!

Excellent program. Was previously using other study materials, but stopped as soon as I got TDC because it was far better than the programs I was using.

I am very pleased with the program. As a busy individual this program let me study at my own pace. I am a full-time employee, mother of a 19 month old whom is currently 22 weeks pregnant. I wanted to feel prepared when I completed the test. I was extremely prepared and passed on my first attempt.

I want to take the opportunity to thank Heidi for coaching me through the study process. She is amazing, patient, and kind. Her responses were timely, but even more importantly her explanations were robust and understandable. I initially started prepping with a different company who only provided a multitude of practice tests and rationales, and I felt there needed to be more content driven studies, and found TDC. I am thrilled I found TDC and decided to invest the money and abandon the other program all together. I was pleased that TDC provided a methodical way of studying. Although I only had three weeks to get through the TDC study and would have preferred more time, I tackled it the way Amanda suggested in the first lecture and kept at it every day for three weeks. I uploaded a picture of me at my family celebration dinner the evening I passed the test! I could not be more excited and grateful for the support of Heidi, TDC and for the way in which Amanda explains everything. I learned the most from the DSM what’s the difference, and the Code of Ethics lectures as well as ensuring I knew the top 50 topics. I wish I could continue to use these lectures as a way to continue to reinforce these principles. THANK YOU!!!!

So thankful to have passed my LCSW exam today! Thank you TDC. The abundance of practice questions through your program was very helpful. I also noticed that the question stems/scenarios through TDC were extremely similar to the real exam which was reassuring.

I bought this program the beginning of this year because I wanted to take my test and I heard good things about this program. I did not focus and skimmed around on the program and failed the first time. I came back on here and actually paid attention and did things step by step and it raised my confidence and I passed the second time around!
