LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 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 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 used TDC for both my Law and Ethics and Clinical exam! Their approach to thinking through and problem-solving the exam questions definitely helped me orient my thinking and give me confidence when taking my exam! I always recommend them to my friends and colleagues who need a study program.

When I decided the take the ASWB Clinical exam, I had no idea where to begin studying until I found the Therapist Development Center. This program was extremely well thought out, organized, and comprehensive. The study schedule helped keep me on track without becoming overwhelmed. The lectures were thorough without being burdensome. I'm thankful that the material was presented in many different ways (lectures, handouts, quizzes, mock exams). All of the practices questions and rationales were what set this program apart and what helped me be successful. Being able to talk to a coach was also extremely helpful, and Heidi's responses were always prompt and detailed. TDC is the reason I was able to pass this exam on my first attempt, and I am incredibly thankful for this amazing study system!

I had heard about TDC and how great it is. I purchased it a couple of months ago to study. It is beyond expectation and I can say it is all that you need to be prepared for this exam. I did not follow the schedule it suggested, but I followed their step by step guideline. You don't need any other materials. Thank you TDC Staff.

What I enjoyed the most about TDC is that the program helped me get a head-start on studying because the studying schedule was already set up for me. I also learned how to study for the exam and how to think about the questions. The strategies offered helped me feel very confident on the day of the exam and I passed!

Excellent program that teaches us how to understand the social work codes of ethics, and use it as a tool to problem solve exam questions and real life issues that social workers may face on and off the field. The program teaches us how to be efficient during the exam. The program is also easy to use and follow if English is your second language; my first language is Portuguese. I highly recommend this program.

Thank you TDC! I really did imagine Amanda's and Heidi's voices in my head as I reasoned out questions. Strategies to improve practice test scores really paid off on the exam.

Using the TDC helped me to build my confidence and competence as a test-taker and as a social worker in general. Because I used it as "prescribed," I passed the exam without much heartache. I wouldn't encourage anyone to study for the exam using anything but the TDC.

Being someone who has so much anxiety around taking tests this system was AMAZING!!!! I felt so prepared and supported. My scores were consistent from the MOCK exams and the actual exam that I took.

TDC was amazing! I passed after my first try, I was doing another prep course and switched to TDC because I felt that it was geared specifically towards preparing you for taking this exam as opposed to bombarding you with information. I could hear Amanda voice throughout the test when trying to choose the correct answer! Thank you so much for breaking this test down and making passing a reachable goal!

Wonderful coverage of material. I have already passed the website information out to 5 people in Texas and Washington! ita Bouges,

I highly recommend this program! I went in to the LCSW exam feeling prepared and confident. I passed on my first attempt. When the BBS took longer than anticipated in processing my application, TDC staff was very responsive and afforded me an extension so that I would have access to study materials for the necessary time period. An over all great experience.

This is a great program! I took it two times prior to purchasing the program. First time 6 points away, second time 3 points! I wanted to pass this time and needed to try something different. A friend recommended TDC. I’m glad I did it. Worth every penny!! The testing tips was also helpful!

TDC study guides were very helpful, especially the mock exams with explanations!

I felt very confident going into the test, thanks to the TDC study system. The practice tests and the mock exams drove it home for me. My score improved each time I took the practice tests, and so did my confidence! Couldn't have done it without Amanda and the crew! THANK YOU.

I passed with 121 of 170. It was very close to the results of your practice tests!!!

I took the LCSW twice prior to take it the third time. I passed on my third attempt using the TDC program. The program works. Thank you Heidi for answering my questions in a timely manner. I have recommended TDC to a co worker who recently passed as well. Thanks!!!

TDC is amazing and I am so grateful for the program and how it assisted me in preparing to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker!

TDC made it easy to pass my exam!

I can't tell you how happy I am that I decided to use this study system! I was completely lost when I began studying and did not know where to start. Unlike the other study systems, this program is organized and gave me a clear direction of how to study. They show you how to study and not just memorize definitions. I particularly found the top 50 topics, audio lectures and practice exams/rationals extremely helpful. Thank you!

TDC has been amazing for me! I loved the organization of the system and it made it fun to study. I actually enjoyed my study time! I ended up going through the system twice but the second time I completed it in one week. For me, I feel that was more helpful in retaining the information.
