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’m the biggest procrastinator and delayed all my studying to the last minute. I knew I would need a program that would help me structure my studying. I found TDC easy to follow. I would casually listen to the recordings while driving. I didn’t officially start studying until a week before my exam. I was able to complete the whole program in one week and felt prepared for my exam. All my coworkers have used TDC and passed. Now, I can proudly say that I passed on my first try!!! Thank you!!!!!

OMG, I Passed after failing the first time I looked for a program that would help me pass! This program was amazing! It was very simple and easy to follow. I highly recommend it! Thank you so much, I am an LCSW!!!!!!

I am forever grateful to the TDC for supporting me in passing my LCSW exam. I used them previously to prepare for my law and ethics exam in 2017 and successfully passed. Knowing the clinical test was longer and more intense, I enlisted the support of one of the TDC coaches, Heidi Tobe and she was incredibly helpful. She was able to help me understand rationales, provided me with key tips and strategies and was always available for additional support if needed. I could not have passed my exam without the TDC and their team. Thank you!!! -Sayda Vanessa Clark, LCSW

I first started using Therapist Development Center when I initially did the Masters Level Exam. I had previously failed that exam 2 times and after the second time failing, I was extremely frustrated and felt defeated. I looked around everywhere for something that would give me the tools to pass. And thats when I found the Therapist Development Center online. I was nervous since it was a bit expensive and I had no idea what the program would offer. I completed the program, felt more confident than ever- and I passed that exam by 20 points!
Fast forward a couple years, I then needed to take the Clinical Level Exam. I bought the study guide from Therapist Development Center immediately, without hesitation. I bought the study guide middle of December and just passed my test on February 13th! I would NOT have passed this exam without this study guide.
If you are looking for a way to pass this exam, look no further. It is worth EVERY SINGLE penny! Thank you Therapist Development Center- I DID IT!

I am beyond excited that I passed my exam on the first attempt!! TDC helped me feel prepared and confident going into the exam. I really loved listening to the audio lectures and felt the mock exams helped me have the right mindset to tackle the reasoning questions! So thankful for this program!!

Thank you for helping me pass the LCSW. I am feeling so relieved. Going through your program was great for me because I am an auditory learner. It also provided the structure I needed to stay on track and keep my confidence up. Thank you TDC!

I passed on the first try!!! I could not have done it without TDC

I am so thankful that I found this study program. I went into the exam way more confident and felt well-prepared. I am so happy I passed on my first time and that was made possible by this program. The program was easy to follow and helped lessen my test anxiety by breaking the test down into manageable sections. Thank you TDC!!

Thank you TDC, the materials were easy to follow and the tips were helpful in preparing for the test.

I had previously used a different study material the first time I took the test in August 2019. I failed the test by 2 questions and my confidence was shaken. I heard about TDC from other colleagues and wanted to try it out. I'm so glad I did! The study material and the way it's presented worked with the way I learn. I loved being able to listen to the lectures while in the car driving to and from work. The handouts and worksheet provided make so much sense. I utilized the study taking strategies Amanda recommended and it helped me so much. I was much calmed this time taking the test and much more confident. I highly recommend TDC to any social worker studying for their license exam. It is worth every penny!

I highly recommend this course to anyone preparing to take an ASWB exam. I passed my Clinical exam at the first attempt with the help of TDC! The combination of audio lectures, handouts, quizzes, and mock exams were the perfect mix. I felt very confident going into the exam thanks to TDC!

OMG!!! Can’t believe I passed on the first try. I listened to the audio like it was music and took the exams as many times as allowed.

There is no way I would have passed this test without TDC. I was skeptical after getting recommendations however after reading many testimonials I went for it. As I was reading the first few questions I smiled to myself feeling so confident that this program gave me the tools needed to answer these questions and the practice questions were so similar. I was way more prepared than I was when I took the LMSW without this program years ago. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

This program was easy to follow and very helpful. Audios and quick studies were life savers. Mock exams were accurate and matched up fairly well with actual test content. Passed on the first try!

Thank you TDC! I passed! This was a great program that prepared you for the test! I would recommend this program to everyone!

This has been the best program for my learning style. I have been out os School for 23 years. This program gave me the knowledge and the confidence to pass the exam. I was able to listen to the lectures on the go. I was able to make my own audio recordings from the quick studies to listen to on the go. The quick studies are awesome material and also helped me to gain knowledge needed to pass the exam. The program helped me to recognize situations on the exam to be able to choose the correct answer. My Coach, Heidi Tobe is phenomenal and helped me to clarify information that I struggled with. Can’t say enough about the Coaching. This program boosted my points to have more than enough to pass the exam. The other programs I reviewed prior to purchasing this program seemed to fail in comparison. I would highly recommend this program to anyone.

I just wanted to say thank you to the Therapist Development Center! I was able to pass my LICSW exam on the first try! I am appreciative of their program and how they cater to different people’s learning styles. The combination of hearing the lectures, reading the materials, and doing the practice exams really prepared me for the exam! I solely used TDC for my study materials. As a person with text anxiety, this study program really helps build confidence and ensures student success on the exam. Bravo TDC, your program rocks!

I graduated over 30 years ago and was worried about remembering how to study. I truly didn’t know where to start. I found your program by accident and I am so glad. My anxiety got in the way of signing up for the exam and I was granted several extensions no questions asked. Once I overcame my anxiety and signed up for an exam date, your program kept me organized, built my confidence and helped me remember all I know. Ultimately, your program gave me the tools to pass. I highly recommend this program. I passed with an excellent score. on my first attempt. THANK YOU

An Airfare Veteran, I graduated in 2013 and vowed to past my test within the 6 years of graduation. Shortly after graduation, I worked with a non profit agency and then later to an agency that worked with Veterans. I kept putting off my test as I had family issues to deal with. After 5 years, After I tried a weekend course with my local college and all that did was freak me out- the material was overwhelming an too much to study. After 2 months of studying- I took my test and failed. I felt like a failure. Then I heard about TDC and read the testimonials that the audio was helpful to a lot of people who past. I figured, what do I have to lose. So I applied to the program and applied myself diligently; this program is on point in helping you absorb material necessary to pass the test. Full disclosure- I have ADHD- no joke. I thought how can I possible pass when my attention is everywhere else all the time. What helped- I faithfully studied about 2 hours 4x a week for 7 weeks and took all the mock exams and reviewed all the quizzes at least 3 times. Amanda really understands how to explain and how to break down a question. I even used the acronym SFAREAFI (Safety, feelings, assess, refer, education, advocate, facilitate, intervene (Phillip Lutrell Utube)- to help guide me with applications questions -signified by the words- First, Next, Best, Most....Thank you so much to all the workers at TDC- I learn best when hearing the information. I am so telling everyone how useful and helpful this program is. I appreciate your commitment to success!

The TDC course was so helpful! I was able to take the Clinical Exam during my last semester of my MSW course and this course enabled me to pass on my first try. I am very happy and grateful to have prepared with your system. Thank you !
