LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
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

I have been out of School for several years and needed to Refamiliarize myself with with the material and practice taking the test. I had previously taken it and just missed passing by 4 questions . This time I was able to pass.
The material was easy to read and the lectures were very helpful.

TDC prepared me for my Law and Ethics exam as well as my LCSW clinical exam! I felt that the materials helped me be overly prepared which helped boost my confidence entering the exam. I am so grateful to have had the support of TDC during my process in obtaining LCSW!

I love the audio feedback and the option to contact a coach. I don't believe I used the coach nearly as much as I should have, but there was comfort in having one available.

I took the LCSW exam 4/12/21 and passed on my first try! I felt prepared, and ready to "attack" the test! The Therapist Development Center program helped me feel confident in answering the questions, and there were no surprises. This program was different from all the other program I looked at while I was preparing. I would recommend this program to any social worker getting ready to take the LSCW exam!
Thank you so much!

I truly wish I would have found TDC the first time I took the exam. My first attempt I tried reading a study book and it was not enough. One of the first things I said after the exam when I passed the scond time was there would have been no way I passesd without your program. Your lectures, quick studies quizes and mock exams really supported me and made my knowledge concrete and really helped me learn the material and prepare for the exam. I would reccomend this program 100%. Also with COVID19 I am so greatful there was this option of online and at your own pace because I do work full time. Thank you again for putting out this program and really supporting Social Workers in following there hopes and dreams!

I passed my exam today on the first try! I really appreciate this program, as it helped me break down the questions. TDC preps you with just enough information to make informed choices, but not enough to overwhelm you. Used this program in conjunction with the ASWB practice exam and an app with a variety of questions ( though they did not resemble the actual test questions as much as this program). If you take this program seriously and dedicate time to study, you will be far more prepared.

TDC was the only study material I used. I completed it twice, which I would recommend, and PASSED on my first attempt! The program is so comprehensive and is definitely worth the investment. I didn't take the ASWB Practice Exam and TDC prepared me well enough to pass. The coaching feature alone is superb -- thank you Heidi for your speedy responses! There were things on the ASWB Exam that TDC didn't cover, as Amanda suggested there would be, but I used the testing strategies to know which answers to pick. The ASWB Exam was difficult and the answer options felt slightly different than TDC answer options, but I kept telling myself "I can figure it out." And, in the end, I scored 1% better on the ASWB Exam than both of my TDC full mocks. I needed 102 to pass and shocked myself by getting a 135, even when I couldn't sleep the night before the exam. Trust the process!

Thank You for this wonderful program. I passed on my first try and could not have done so with you guys!!!

My situation was somewhat unique. I had graduated with an MSW 29 years ago. As a military spouse for 22 years it was not always possible for me to find jobs in the field of social work, or if I was fortunate to be hired as a social worker, I was not consistently hired at agencies who could offer supervision. And then there were the jobs where I could receive supervision but the hours were not reciprocated in the state where the Air Force sent us. This meant that my ability to rack up the necessary clinical and supervised hours was severely compromised. Finally, came the sweet sound of Air Force retirement and living in one place! Of course this meant I would be able to get the hours and take the exam...29 years after graduation. This course afforded me the opportunity to fill in the gaps in my learning and prepare for the exam in a manner which complimented my own learning style. I am an auditory learner. I also learn through doing. Having the ability to listen to the recorded information in each section was a gift! I strongly doubt I would have been able to study as well for this exam, and be so well-prepared, had I only had exam prep books. I highly recommend that course to anyone who is being licensed for the first time in years or has just gotten out of school and completed their hours. I passed my exam the first time! Thank you so much!

I passed with a 90%! I felt SO confident going in after studying with TDC!

I used TDC study due to honestly having no idea where to start with studying for my LCSW. The program helped me get organized and helped me feel confident in my abilities. Today I passed with a 120 only needing a 102 to pass. To say I'm a fan doesn't even cover my pleasure with the program. I highly recommend the program to anyone wanting guidance and confidence in your abilities. Thank you for the help in becoming an LCSW :)

I graduated with my MSW in December 2020, became a Registered Intern in January 2021, and I studied with TDC for 3 months, then passed my licensing exam with ASWB on 4/6/21. Thank you so much for your wonderful, thorough, and easy to follow prep course! I am so happy you had the most important lectures on audio; us MSW students have burned out eyes from all our studying for our programs and so listening to the audio is a beautiful way to learn. Plus I listened to it in the car in my commutes. You only needed 103 correct to pass, and thanks to you I got 121 correct. Now all I need is to complete my 2 years of supervision and I will be a LCSW! Thank you TDC!!

I was a bit concerned about passing this exam because I don't have much mental health experience, although I've been working as a social worker for many years in child welfare. I believe that the comprehensive program and the lectures really helped me think critically about answering the questions, eased my concerns and increased my confidence. I would highly recomend this program to anyone looking to take the clinical exam. Thank you so much.

Needed 103 to pass, and got 135 correct!

Best study course!!

This is a excellent program, very clear and concise.

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! I passed my LCSW exam on the 1st try in March 2021 using the Therapist Development Center (TDC) program. I was first impressed that as a veteran I did not have to pay for the program. I simply provided TDC proof of my military service. The TDC course helped me to strategize my studying plan, I began to study in January 2021 and took the exam at the end of March. I felt very confident going into the exam. I liked the advice TDC gave me regarding taking a break and eating a snack halfway between the exam. I felt my brain reenergize when I took a short break and drank some fresh grape juice. I especially found the quick studies, quizzes, and practice tests very helpful. The program was easy to follow and I was very pleased. Amanda and Bethany were great at explaining each topic. They are knowledgeable about clinical social work. I have already recommended TDC to my friends, colleagues, and coworkers. TDC is worth the investment. Thank you, TDC.

There's a reason why everyone swears by this program. It is ABSOLUTELY worth it. I am 7 years removed from grad school, so there was A LOT of re-familiarizing myself to certain recall questions. When I took the pre-test, I didn't do so well. But this program does an amazing job structuring the prep and I was able to build momentum as I followed the course outline. By the end of it, I felt significantly more confident than when I started.

Today, I took the exam and while the usual bouts of self-doubt crept in, I was able to go through each question with a process that I've developed during my time prepping. I passed it in one try and I am so thankful for TDC's help.

Thank you very much! I really appreciate all your help and my good result at the end. Highly recommend this program!.

I would like to thank TDC for sticking with me.
