LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
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

I could not have passed without the assistance of TDC! I appreciate all the extensions and questions answered during my program.

Despite being nervous, I felt very prepared. The study material helped me conceptualize the questions to determine the best course of action. I followed the weekly study guides and day of the test I knew I was ready.

Thank you Amanda for your hard work, easy explanations, organizational skills, and lectures. I could not have passed without your system.

Best system beginning to end. Do not go back and lean in! I trusted my knowledge and passed.

I wouldn't have known what to do without TDC! I went into the test feeling calm and prepared. So happy I passed! Thank you!

Very happy I passed! I studied hard and scored 113 out of 103 needed to pass.

I am a combat Veteran that served in the Army for over 10 years and I truly appreciate the opportunity to receive the study material for free. It meant a lot to me to take advantage of such a great prep course. I passed the exam the first time I took it after completing five weeks of studying with TDC. I felt ready and confident the morning of my exam which helped with the nerves. Thank you for putting together a great study prep!!

You have to trust the process! This program is the BEST that's out there because they are with you until you PASS! This was the best investment ever!!! Thank you TDC!!!

Thank you for helping me pass the LCSW exam. The practice exams really helped me approach the exam with confidence. Thank You! Lizette M.

I am very thankful for the TDC team for helping me pass the LCSW exam. I also would like to thank emily pellegrino for coaching me through questions i had about the exam. Again Thank you!!!!!!

TDC prepared me in the best way possible for the clinical exam. The audios were beyond helpful and the way Amanda explains the topics and theories effectively breaks them down to the simplest terms. Proud to say I Passed on my first try thanks to TDC !!

Thank You TDC for giving me the confidence, knowledge and tools I needed to pass the clinical exam!!! I took the exam about 4 months ago and walked away not knowing why I didn't pass. Giving up wasn't an option but I was at a loss for where I needed to start . I really didn't have any ideas on what to do. My close friend and LCSW recommended that I invest in TDC and I am so glad I did. I purchased the program and started devoting time out of each day to focus on the quizzes, lectures, practice exams and quick studies. I started looking forward to studying and growing as a social worker and that changed the trajectory of my outcome. I especially loved the lectures and the time spent on helping me understand why and how they got to a certain answer. One of the most valuable pieces of knowledge I gained was to throw away the idea that every answer goes in to this perfect sequence of assess -> acknowledge-> normalize-> explore-> assess-> identify-> clarify-> refer. It's just not real life. Another valuable recommendation was to ATTACK the test! I was not nervous because I knew TDC gave me everything I needed and I was PREPARED! Thank You TDC!!!!

This course was amazing - I'm definitely a type-A person, and could not even comprehend on where to begin. This course laid everything out for me (topic-wise) and laid it out for me with a timeline. I was able to complete the course twice and felt pretty prepared for the exam. Would highly recommend.

TDC made the study process incredibly manageable! I would've wasted a lot of time figuring out what to study, organizing, etc. and instead TDC had the studying all planned out for me. I love that it's self-paced and draws on a variety of ways of learning (visual, auditory) and the mock tests with rationales were especially helpful. Would highly recommend! My 90% final score doesn't lie!

TDC has been an amazing program from the Law and Ethics exam to the Clinical Exam. I passed on the first try for the Law and Ethics. However, I passed on my second try for the Clincial Exam. Both times with TDC. They helped me reset my account and I was connected to my coach Emily who was helpful in answering my questions for the exam. Which really helped me to be more prepared and confident the second time around! I couldn’t have passed both exams if it wasn’t for TDC. The program is organized in a way that is structured, efficient, audios are great for long work commutes and busy mom life and more importantly they are there for you until you pass. I trust TDC and I trust the process. Thank you so much for making a big difference throughout my journey to becoming licensed. I am officially an LCSW!

Thank you so much TDC for all your help and the organized study material. I do very well with structure and your program had this by far! This program definitely helped with passing the exam. The mock exams were very similar to the real exam and this made me feel more confident. Someone in the FB study group suggested that we also take the ASWB Practice Exam and I did do this too. I believe it helped tremendously in passing the exam. I really took your advice about eating a good breakfast, taking a break at question 85, and most importantly giving myself time for self care. What stood out to me from your program was the 50 topics quiz and rationales, as well as the DSM 5 audio review (I took notes). I wish the quick studies had audio as well, this would have really helped me. Once again, thank you so much and I would highly recommend this program to my colleagues and friends!!!

I am so thankful for the TDC program! I had been feeling anxious about taking my licensing exam FOR YEARS. After completing the program and passing my exam, I see that I had nothing to worry about. I used the TDC program for my Law and Ethics Exam and my ASWB exam and passed both on the first try. I felt very prepared when taking the exam and the test taking strategies were invaluable. I really appreciate the structure, security, and confidence that the TDC study program provided. Seriously, thank you SO MUCH!

I wish I would have purchased TDC's LCSW study system prior to taking other exam prep workshops. TDC offers a blend of elements that, for me, made it a superior program. These include organizing and distilling study topics down to just what I needed to focus on without being overwhelmed, clear and concise audio lectures, quick study guides, plenty of quizzes, short mock exams and full-length mock exams and live coaching. When I took the actual exam, the content and structure of the questions were almost identical to the quizzes and mock exams provided by TDC. After taking this course I felt confident in my ability to pass the exam, and DID pass on the first try! Thank you, TDC. It was time and money well spent.

I used TDC for my LSW, so when it came for my LCSW I came right here! The exam was hard BUT I was prepared. I found a wonderful study partner through the Facebook group, I utilized Heidi as a private couch ( who was amazing, inspiring, patient, smart and proceed it all with me) and I truly truly utilized the program. I learned how to think, reason and work through the material. I am so thankful for TDC. I feel so accomplished and proud & it’s because of TDC. The structure of the program is wonderful, esp for people who have that busy mom life, crazy work schedule and trying to balance it all! I am so excited to see what my future holds and I can’t wait to hold that piece of paper, I earned it!!!! With every single penny!!! Thank you TDC. I will recommend you!

I am excited that I brought this program and passed on the first time. I bought another program for the first exam and failed several times. I learned a lot with program. It really enhanced my comprehension of the material.
