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

This program really prepared me for the day of battle and the the most important day of my career thus far. Amanda equips you well for tackling those pesky BOST/MOST questions and especially the FIRST/NEXT questions! She provides an holistic program for exam success. The coaching was invaluable as well. I truly believe I would not have done nearly as well as I did without this program. You rock Amanda! Thank you so much to the TDC team!

Thank you TDC for everything! I passed the LCSW exam on my first try & your program helped me get there! The coaches are amazing & provide great support & study tips on how to tackle the exam but also how to calm any test anxiety that I had. Thank you...I am beyond grateful!

I just took the LCSW exam for the first time and passed! TDC completely prepared me! Especially taking the 2 full mock exams - they really helped me learn to pace myself, take a break, and also to mentally prepare myself for coming across questions that I would not know the answer to, without it affecting my confidence. I am VERY pleased with the course and how well it prepared me!! Thank you TDC!

I jumped in a week before testing and studied daily for hours . I don’t recommend that but that’s how I operate. Just listened to audios over and over and read material. I didn’t take the final mock exam because I didn’t have time but smaller exams I did . I did exactly what Amanda said to do the night before and the day of. I was not able to take a break at question 85 because I was running out of time . I read each question thoroughly and read it again before I chose my answer. I finished 9 minutes to time was up. I went to review marked questions and I told myself to not change them . This is an excellent study resource . Thank you guys !!!!

I took the test 5 times and each time I would fail by 2-4 points. Then, prior to taking it my 6th and FINAL time, I discovered your program. You make it so easy to understand and study the material. Also, it's so nice that you allow extensions because I needed a few. Thank you so very much for sticking with me until I passed!

I felt confident going into the exam. I purchased this study system over others because it was interactive and comprehensive (lectures/audio, practice worksheets, multiple practice exams, quick studies). It taught me how to reason and take the exam instead of learning black/white or "recall" information only. The exam demanded me to reason with nearly every question and there was minimal cold recall and I am happy to say I was equipped because of this study system. I also really appreciated the structure to the study system instead of just purchasing a book and wondering where to begin with learning A LOT of information that is not even necessary to pass the exam. I followed every step and will never look back... THANK YOU THANK YOU! I will tell all social workers I know here and onwards to use this system. I know a lot of people who have taken this exam and failed and I passed the first time and do not even consider myself to be a "good" test taker. Thank you for being knowledgeable about how people learn ….so refreshing!

I want to start by saying a special Thank you to Heidi! Heidi was amazing!! For several weeks, I would send Heidi questions and she would respond right away and she aided me in understanding terms more effectively as well as her insight in how she would answer the questions, I would get stuck on. Thanks to Heidi, I passed my LCSW exam on July 2, 2018. I also want to thank Amanda for the Audio portion of the study course it is hands down the best. I have used other study materials from another course in the past and there was no comparison. If you are looking for a study course the Therapist Development Center is hands down the best study course!!! I am truly thankful to the Therapist Development Center.

I would like to thank everyone associated with TDC for assisting me in reaching my educational/career goal of full licensure. I had failed the course two years ago and felt I could not ever pass it. TDC gave me a study schedule that worked for me along with instilling in me that I was knowledgeable in what was being covered. Thanks again and I will be sure to recommend you to those in my agency.

I gave a four star because I am a visual/audio learner and would have appreciated all lectures, including the quick studies and final mock exams have audio. Amanda does an excellent job and I took her with me to the exam which helped a great deal.

I took my test yesterday (7-10-18) and passed by 23 points. This course was instrumental for me in learning how to approach the questions. Thinking through questions is the difference between passing and failing. I also appreciate the evident concern and care that the creators of TDC for the students. This comes across especially in the audio parts. We, students, feel like we are on a team and we are not alone. Thanks for your service.

I found TDC to be an organized program that eased my nerves about taking the clinical exam. I appreciated the structure and the realistic timelines. I feel like the lectures prepared me the most, especially being able to work through the rationales for the questions and understanding question structure for the exam. I'm very glad I made the investment with TDC to assist me with my exam preparation, I felt confident going into the exam and was able to pass on my first attempt.

First time pass! I think the important thing for me is that I didn't have to get 100%, I just had to pass. The material completely prepared me for taking the test and taking Amanda in with me worked!

This program left me feeling confident and well prepared going into the exam. Thank you!!

I have to thank the theropist development center for helping me pass this exam. The quick studies, dsm 5 whats the difference and ethics lecture helped prepare me in tackling this exam. I have bad test anxiety and had taken the exam twice before but following the tools of this program paid off.

Thank you, TDC, for providing such a comprehensive study program and for all the prompt support to my questions along the way! I trusted the study process, went thru the program several times over two months and really felt confident to walk into the test! So happy to have passed the LCSW exam!

I thought the material was great and heard great things about it. However, due to the pressure of taking the exam before my baby was due, I rushed through the material and it showed. I didn't pass on my first try. I feel good about reusing it to retake it in a few months though and I'm sure I will pass it next time. I will also make sure to take my time with the material this time around.

I took the ASWB on July 2nd and passed. I needed 103 to pass and scored a 115. The TDC study program very helpful in learning how to read and understand how to break down the questions. I took the AWB exam last December and missed it by 5 points. When studying the first time I used other study materials. Looking back I'm confident if I had used TDC when I first started studying for the exam I more than likely would have passed on the first try back in December. The various study materials provides helps to learn and understand the material in the exam in a structured way that made it less overwhelming to study. I need an extension due to needing more time to prepare and being able to get a date for the exam. I would recommend this program for anyone Who is needing study materials for the ASWB. Thank you TDC for this wonderful program that allowed me to become an LCSW.

I would not have passed without this study system. I followed the guidelines and did it at my own pace. So proud to pass on my first try!

I passed my LCSW exam the first time around with the use of TDC’s program! I did not use (or need) any other study system or materials, and felt well-prepared for the ways to think to work through the questions. TDC provided exactly what I needed!

I am so grateful that I found and used this program. I felt prepared for the test and confident that I had the ability to pass.
