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 system was extremely helpful. I passed on the first try as I used the system as it was intended. I moved up my test date 2 weeks as I felt fully prepared for the test. I decided at 9 pm the day prior to take it the next day. I would highly recommend doing the system as it was designed and it makes it a lot easier when you are trying to figure out what they are asking. Thank you TDC for being there with me along the way to make me feel confident!

Thank you! The system works and I was READY and CONFIDENT!!

TDC makes studying simple. I felt well prepared before and during the exam.

I passed on the first attempt which almost brought me to tears! I have always been anxious about completing exams but this program was a life saver and made me feel more prepared than I could've ever been on my own! The practice exams helped build my test taking skills and were the most helpful part. There were a few topics that were included in the exam (unfortunately I can't remember what they were) and/or some questions with unforeseen scenarios that really through me for a loop. But the continued practice around reasoning skills and putting the answers in order was a GOD send! This program is so awesome and I will be forever grateful! I felt like I was in school again and really enjoyed revisiting all of these topics!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

First and foremost, I just want to thank you all at TDC because I passed on the first try!! There were several moments during the exam that I thought I was definitely going to fail. But, Amanda, your pep talk and specifically where you addressed these specific feelings was incredibly helpful! I remembered what you said during the exam and it really helped me to calm down. Your program built my confidence like none other...I did use another program at first and did not feel confident enough to take the exam on the date I originally scheduled it for. So, I gave myself another 5 weeks and used was worth every penny!! AND, Heidi (one of the coaches) was SOOOO helpful in encouraging me and providing me with some solid study advice one week before the exam. I couldn't be more grateful to you all right now!!

I trusted TDC with both my LCSW Law and Ethics Exam as well as the ASWB Clinical Exam. I went through the program twice just as TDC recommended and I felt very prepared going in to the exams. I would definitely recommend it to colleagues!

After two failed attempts, therapist development center gave me the confidence I needed to PASS the LCSW exam! No magic formulas or acronyms just plain old reading, studying, and lots of practice questions. The guided step by step program helped me to stay on track and not get distracted! Thank you!!!

TDC streamlined my preparation for the AWSB Clinical Exam. By laying out the extremely organized plan of action I was prepared for my exam, which I passed on the first try. I will recommend this study system to peers!!!

It took me 4 attempts to pass my LSW. Because of that reason I waited several years before attempting my LCSW. When a friend suggested this program I knew I had to use it because of how step by step everything was and I would never have to wonder what or how to study. I went step by step through the program and studied the quick study handouts for hours over the course of a couple of months. The concrete information was helpful but I believe that I passed the test because of what I learned about how to reason through the questions. I passed on my first attempt!!!!! Thank you TDC!!!!

I walked in to take my exam for the first time. I never imagined I would feel so prepared and confident like I did that day. It felt so calm, so ready to pass. I finished the exam in 2.5hrs. I passed with a score higher than I need to pass. I am soooooo grateful to TDC for guiding me through the process. I highly recommend it!!!


Thank you so much TDC for this amazing program! Your program was easy to follow, effective and taught me so much in a short amount of time! I truly felt prepared going into the exam and while the test wasn’t easy, I was able to use the strategies and skills I had learned thanks to your program! A big thank you to Heidi for all your quick responses to all my questions and for explaining everything so well! I couldn’t have done this without TDC and would recommend this program to anyone preparing for the licensure exam!

The ASWB Clinical Study System is very comprehensive and highly recommended for those seeking to pass the LCSW exam. I passed my exam on 9/26/18.

I feel TDC helped me to really take control of the test and it boosted my confidence. I failed my first try by 3 points and I was devastated. I feel I went into the exam the second time with the advice from TDC to have authority of the exam. I imagined Amanda was in there with me reading the question and walking me through the "best" " first" and "next" steps. I am so pleased with TDC and would definitely recommend this program to everyone!

Honestly this has been the best help in preparing for the exam. During my exam I literally had Amanda's voice in my head as I went through the questions and put things in order. It has been so helpful listening to the lectures and having access to them easily, I would drive and listen in my car for extra reviewing. The program really gave me confidence in myself and walking into the test and throughout the test.

This program was amazing!! It helped me to think in the way I needed to for the test!! I passed on my first try and this program made it happen!!

I am very pleased with Therapy Development Center and have recommended it to my friends. Thank you very much for helping me pass on the first try. I found the test questions were similar format than the program's and it got my brain trained to think in that way. Thanks so much!!

Overall I feel that this program really provided the basics you need to take the exam. Going into the exam I felt prepared with processing my answers in a reasonable manner. The program was convenient to study with and I feel it really addressed the important topics that were covered in the exam. The practice test are a good practice source.

The TDC study program works if you work it! As long as you dedicate the time to study, follow Amanda and Heidi’s tips and trust the process... you will pass the ASWB clinical Examination. I completed my exam in 3 hours and passed on my 1st attempt.

I am so grateful for this study program. It was a thorough overview of everything for the LCSW exam. I relied heavily on the audio lectures so I could study in the car, walking, and while on the go. Thank you so much!

TDC is a wonderful program!! It got me on track and organized me which made studying SO much easier. THANKS TDC!!!!
