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!).

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

TDC was AMAZING!!! I had a lot going on, and the program helped me to get organized and follow a routine to study for my LCSW. I found the audios extremely helpful with learning and retaining the information. Most of all, the program taught me how to approach and answer the reasoning based questions, which is what helped me pass my exam!

This prep course is absolutely amazing!! Engaged the most senses which really helped to instill the information into my brain!! I also had long drives sometimes for work, and would listen to the audios while I was driving. Also, I honestly felt like the mocks that were offered through TDC were harder then the exam itself. Because they were, they really helped to hone and develop my reasoning skills and breaking down a question. Which for me was the hardest part! So, thank you TDC!! I tell everyone about you already and will continue to keep telling people about TDC!!

Jacob Cooper LCSW has arrived!!!!! I want to first and foremost give a special shout out to my coach Heidi. I came to TDC completely devistated after working my tail off and failing my first attempt by 5 Questions. I really needed to pass as I am tied into many different avenues that need my full attention including writing a book with a major publisher. Heidi never backed down and gave me her full attention and thorough responses in countless emails. It was wonderful to have a private tutoring session with her as well. I loved the break down of the program. The results are there if you follow all the steps and approach the test from a holistic approach. I had a sixteen point increase and passed with a 110/102. I am going to be honest that test was a grind to the very end and there were many here we go again moments. Heidi's voice was there to calm me down and find the inner confidence to preserve aka Mamba Mentality!! I couldn't reccomend it enough I have my life back and can finally give others and my goals my full attention. Highly recommend TDC. Bravo to this excellent program!!

I studied the way it is recommended in the program, taking all quizzes and mock exams. Along with discipline and consistency I passed. Thank you so much for your support and granting me access for free. As a military veteran and also a soldier currently serving. Thank you for your support.

TDC was great! It really helped me get a better understanding of each topic that is discussed on the test more in depth, as well as learning to answer the questions in the way that the test wants you to answer. Highly recommend!

I passed my exam on my first attempt!! I can not even begin to express my gratitude for TDC. The study system is far superior to any other the other preps out there. I was so nervous about taking this exam that I put it off for over a year until finally I decided to take the leap and put all my trust into TDC. Before TDC I had no idea where to even begin. I had no direction and no clue what to study, let alone how to think through the exam questions. TDC provided me with the guidance and direction I needed and set me up for success. The mock exams TDC offers are so similar to the actual exam that after the first few questions of my exam, I felt as if I was just taking another TDC mock test. This really helped to calm my nerves and I felt so much more confident! This study prep is worth every penny. Thank you so much for this!

The TDC program is a MUST! I've studied for several exams in my day but this material was broken down in a way that helped me decode exactly what the question was asking. The information was delivered in a number of ways (lectures, detailed reasoning behind the right and wrong answers, practice test, quizzes, worksheets, etc.) that helped me to, not just study, but learn the information in a way that allowed me to transfer technique to exam questions that weren't specifically address during studying. The different modules reviewed information that were, not just pertinent to the test, but pertinent to my knowledge as a clinician. Definitely grateful for this program!

I failed the exam 3 times before and I tried other study programs. Some were overwhelming, and I had a hard time retaining so much. But TDC worked for me!! I actually enjoyed studying because I was retaining so much. I can't tell you enough how thankful I am. I finally passed my exam. I still can't believe it!! I took all your recommendations, and I'm actually taking better care of myself as a result too! Thank you for everything!!!

This course was awesome and helped me pass the first time! I walked into the test feeling confident and ready! The mock exams were so close to the real thing and truly helped me with my test endurance. Thank you guys so much!

I liked the program. It is very systematic, effective, and focused. I am grateful to TDC for helping me to pass the LCSW exam.

Best money spent!

So excited and happy!!!! I passed my LCSW exam this morning!!!!
Social work is my second career. I’m in my 50s and bi-lingual. I I know one thing for sure, I wouldn’t have passed it if it was not for TDC! I love the way the program is organized and audio lectures for me personally was an essential piece.
Thank you!

Excellent program! All you need. Just follow the plan and you will be well prepared and then some!

This program helped me organize my studying and help me get the confidence I needed to pass. I studied with TDC for the past few weeks and was able to pass on my first try!

I have to say my test anxiety is sky high. I used the program before my second test and I think I didn’t do it as efficiently as this time around. I allowed myself this time to accept wrong answers and learn from it. With the support behind me I was able to pass this time!

I finally passed my LCSW exam!!! TDC takes all the credit for me passing. I have used other study programs and books to prepare and by using this course i have never felt so confident during the exam. Thank you so much!

Highly recommend. I was completely stuck and broken after I failed my test. TCD not only gave me the material to properly answer questions on the test but it gave me confidence.

I felt very prepared after taking the LCSW prep through TDC. I also used their program for the CA Law and Ethics exam, so I know that the teaching style (the lectures, mock exams, and other materials) works for me. While the program covered a broad range of topics, it's important to remember that what's covered is not completely exhaustive, and that there will likely always be something on the test that you don't know. However, TDC thoroughly prepared me for HOW to take the test, how to eliminate incorrect answers, and how to tolerate uncertainty. I also felt that risk factors, crisis intervention, and DSM differentials were hammered in pretty thoroughly, and I liked having access to all of the practice materials. I passed on the first try with an 80%!

Thank you so much. I had paid for other study materials and books (including an NASW prep course) and this was far superior. I completed everything from your course over the course of a weekend prior to the test and it was extremely helpful.

Thank you TDC for the role you played with helping me reaching my goal and passing the LCSW exam on the first try! I loved the audio and rationales provided. I highly recommend TDC course.
