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

TDC was an awesome program! This was my second attempt at taking the LCSW exam. Initially, I was skeptical, as I could not find many independent reviews online. However, a read a few posts on Reddit. Everyone suggested trying TDC as compared to many other LCSW study programs. I studied for 6 weeks prior to taking the test. During the test, I felt prepared. The concepts of the questions on the actual exam was very similar to the questions on the two mock exams. Due to the exams similarities, I felt relaxed during the test and did not experience much anxiety. Thanks again Amanda! I will definitely recommend this to my colleagues.

I have been graduated for 7 years and was at risk of losing my job! I had taken the exam 2 other times and failed both times by 1 and 3 points. I never felt confident. After using TDC I went into the exam feeling confident and I passed! By using TDC it explained what I was missing when taking the tests in the past. I believe it also reminded me about the things that I had learned many years ago while in school. Thank you so much!

I passed first attempt. The scores I acheived on the mock exams were within one percent of the actual exam. The addition of the second full mock exam was very helpful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I, hands down, would not have passed without TDC. I actually heard the lectures in my head as I was going through the exam. I also feel like I learned quality information from this, so aside from passing the exam, I took away clinical knowledge that was new to me! Thank you TDC!

The main reason I chose to study with TDC is because of my multifaceted learning style. TDC offered auditory learning as well as verbal. I could drive, cook, even sleep and listen to lectures. I could repeat the lectures as many times as I chose to do so, and I could take exams to solidify my learning. Having access to a learning coach also was great. I've already recommended TDC to others.

This program worked really well for me because it helped me create a schedule and structure for studying for the exam. They do a great job of reducing down the content of the exam into manageable pieces. Having quizzes, short tests, half mock exams, and then 2 full length mock exams with rationales was key for getting me in the right head space for the exam. I was very happy with this product.

The course was excellent, easy to follow and really set my mind at ease before taking the exam. I specifically liked the way you start off with the top 50 topics to expect on the exam. Also, the gradual way that the instructors move you through the course and then test your knowledge. In addition, it really helped with the way the instructors helped you use the process of elimination with the answers and referring back to the stem to ensure that you're answering what is being asked in the stem. Thank you so much.

Although I took the exams 5x's and failed, your program never made me feel I was alone. Amanda and the rest of you are awesome. Not only were your voices in my audios but in my brain during the exam.....

I had not taken a test or studied in over ten years. The test intimidated me and I kept delaying registration due to my fears. I knew I needed extra support. I am thankful for the support of TDC. It gave me structure and a great base to start. The study guides and mock exams really helped me prepare.

Excellent study material. I could hear Amandas voice and especially advice as I was taking the test

I am a new mom and really needed a easy to understand program that would guide my study time and material focus as my free time is limited. This program did just that. I went through material twice and passed on the first attempt.

Thanks to TDC, I passed my LCSW on my first try today! I changed careers into social work a few years back and hadn't taken a long exam like this since that SATs; which was over 20 years ago. Having said that, I was extremely nervous and having a lot of anxiety when I first started preparing for it. Finding and using TDC gave me the knowledge, skills and confidence I needed to pass. I felt very prepared going in there. Thank you again TDC!

This is my second time taking the exam. The first time I missed passing by 2! Of course TDC stuck with me and I took the program again. This time I decided to listen to the Top 50 audios after I went through the quick studies. I listened and listened and listened to the DSM V What’s The Difference audios and did the same for the Top 50 audios. I’m usually a visual learner (the first time I listened, took notes and then wrote flash cards), but for some reason the second time around I HEARD Amanda say things I didn’t recall writing down the first time. When I didn’t know the answer, I could literally hear Amanda in my head going through the process of elimination (“that’s a good place to start, let’s see what the rest of the answers are”) - I would then give her an internal shout out lol! I’m thankful to God and this program. I’m so glad this crap is over lol!

Hello TDC (especially coach H)!!!
Doing the Victory Dance! I passed my LCSW exam today;) Your system has been very thorough, really in depth (and to the point--where needed) and worth every penny/minute of my time. I am so grateful! TDC Coach Heidi's suggestions pretest day were on point and helped me keep focus ---stay in the present and answer as if it were the very next thing and put the answers in order. By the way I took all the suggestions for first/next and practicing and reviewing full Mock 1 and full Mock 2 so as to pinpoint areas of consistent errors-really concentrating on changing my habitual response. I was much more action oriented in my answers so in prep. I really slowed down to process the cognitive errors and stay in the session with the client when answering- this was key;)
I am happy to know you do the CEUs as well as I will definately take advantage of them in the future-- I am hoping to supervise and your system truly equips clinical practitioners!---Thank you for all you do!!!! Julie S.

Dianna from Tennessee: I just wanted to say Thank You to the TDC Team for equipping me with the knowledge, understanding, and confidence I needed to pass my LCSW Exam! I sat for my clinical exam last week and I PASSED on my first attempt! Thank You TDC!!! The test itself was mentally tasking, in fact I was still exhausted a day later, but I PASSED! I would say 85% or better of my questions were reasoning based and I had lots of questions on ethics. So, for future exam takers, once you’re comfortable in your general knowledge of the information, definitely practice mastering the reasoning based questions. Again, Thanks TDC and Bidding All Future Testers The Very Best!!! ~Dianna

I passed the exam on the first try. I am so happy that I purchased the program. I am so happy that I did not try to study on my own. It was so helpful. The mock exams and listen and learn lectures were very helpful. The coach responded to me within the same day. Thank you so much for this program!!

TDC really prepares me by helping me to think according to the actual test material. The practice exams and audio guides helped me feel more confident and at ease to pass my LCSW exam. I highly recommend TDC to anyone looking to ace their LCSW exam! It’s a great investment and you won’t be disappointed

I passed on my second attempt. TDC was helpful and also supportive in staying with you until you pass. They email tips and suggestions for passing the next time, which I appreciate. I would definitely recommend this program to future candidates. Thank you TDC.

My practice exam results were remarkably consistent with the ASWB exam. Thanks for providing valid and reliable practice!

The program not only prepares you for the exam but allows you to evaluate your own practice. Thanks!
