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 was my third time taking the exam. I used two different study programs for my previous attempts. I finally heard about TDC from friends at work. I used the program to prepare for my exam. This was the first time I felt completely prepared to take the exam. I walked in confidently to the testing center and could barely contain my excitement when I finally passed!!! I am so grateful for TDC and I will refer this program to anyone I know who is preparing to take this test. Thank you TDC!!

I used TDC to pass the CA Law and Ethics exam and found it helpful at that time. It was even more helpful for this one. I appreciated the organizational pointers as well as the lectures which were easy to listen to while attending to other activities (cooking dinner for the family, etc.). Also, the FB group is a great place to 'meet' up with other people in the same space and helps keep test anxiety in check. Thank you, TDC for all of your help!

This study system was excellent, organized, thorough and informative in all aspects. Access to the coaches was readily available. The study program structure is amazing. This was the only study material I used to prep and felt that it was sufficient. So thankful I found this!!!! This gave me the confidence and reassurance I needed as well as pertinent information to carry into the test, but also the field. Passed on the first try! Thanks TDC!!!

I know I would not have passed the ASW-B exam nor have the confidence to take the test without TDC's comprehensive exam prep

This course was sooooo helpful! I passed this morning - needed a score of 103 and got 120. Couldn’t have done this without TDC!!

I have a full time job and am a mom of a toddler, I have absolutely no time to sit down and figure out what I am going to study, let alone learn how to understand what the questions are asking. TDC was so helpful!!! The audio was clear and the practice tests and mock exams were so helpful. I walked into my test feeling very prepared and confident. The test was definitely hard and I could not have passed without this great study program. Thank you!!! I am so relieved that I can now say I am an LSCW!

Praise God, I passed ! Amazing study system. I followed all the tips and suggestions, down to the cough drops. Happy to move forward with my life and career. Truly a blessing.
Thank-you TDC !

Thank you! I could not have passed without you.

I passed the LCSW exam on my first try and I credit TDC! The Top 50 Topics gave structure to my studying. I would have been studying random topics needlessly with no direct purpose. Every time I got anxious I looked at the How to Study paper on my refrigerator and refocused myself. I religiously followed all the study and exam taking tips. The pep talk 48 hours before eased my anxiety a lot! At exactly question 85 I took my break and came back with a whole new perspective and confidence. I learned so much from the Ethics lecture and I credit it with pointing me to the right answer so many times! I did “take Amanda to the test” with me! I AM SO THRILLED! Thank you

TDC really helped me prepare for the exam. Following the outline helped set me up for success. Questions on mocks are very similar to actual test questions. Thanks flr all the help!

As a mother of three and military wife I have little time to study. I was recommended TDC from fellow collegues. Hands down the best decision I made! I followed the study guide and trusted the process. I passed on my first try! Thanks TDC for making such a clear, concise and honest program I could trust. Highly recommend this to anyone, especially those with very busy life’s who need structured material.

This program helped me go into the test confident that I could and would pass. I was over prepared for the test, which is a good thing. The program is set up perfectly, so learning a lot of info is not overwhelming. Thank you!

I'd like to say that when I shop on Amazon or any other site for that matter, I tend to look at the top rated and best selling items. In this case, I was looking for the top rated and best mentioned LCSW program and I ended up choosing TDC. Today I've passed the LCSW exam and it was my 2nd attempt (on my first attempt I did not use TDC). I'd like to thank the coaches who responded to my questions in a timely manner and really responded to the exact question I was asking. I love the fact that TDC is equipped with audio from Amanda along with the quick studies and quizzes. I feel that this program is worth the money, and as I was taking the exam, I found myself thinking back to those mock and final mock exams where the questions may have been similar and I remembered the strategy to answer the question. The strategies taught in this program truly cater to the exam and helps to point out what's most important. I thank the TDC team for putting this program together and for helping people like me pass the LCSW!

I began studying in August with Therapist Development Center and followed the recommended study schedule as directed. The night before test day I felt calm, confident, and prepared! I am normally a very anxious test taker but this time it was very different for me. There wasn't a single question on the test that I felt TDC did not prepare me for. I stand behind this program 100% if followed as intended you will pass and pass with confidence! Thank you TDC!

Without the TDC program I would not have been able to pass the test the first time. I historically test poorly and was incredibly anxious about taking the exam. After following the TDC program I felt completely prepared. The Top 50 Topics and ethics lectures were invaluable. They explained information in very simple terms which helped me to easily understand the rationales. The Facebook page was very helpful too. To have the support and ability to ask questions really helped me to feel like I wasn't alone. Thank you so much for creating this program. I have and will continue to recommend it.

After studying with other materials, I didn't feel prepared and confident enough to take the exam. I am very glad for TDC and everything it taught me! Not only did they provide great information to study but helpful reminders to manage test anxiety!

Thank you for the support!

Trust in TDC. It worked. I tried other things to help me pass, but this program blew them all away. Do the program and listen to AMANDA!

I was so relieved when I realized the format of questions on the actual exam were so similar to the course practice questions I had been studying. My stress level dramatically decreased! Between the auditory learning, the practice quizzes and the very realistic moch exam, I felt so very prepared. Thank you again...I'm now a proud LCSW!

Therapist Development Center LCSW study program helped me to gain practice in specifically, how to take the test. The structure of the program helped me to stay on track. I did not study other material much and primarily only utilized this course. The method of teaching with audio recordings for best with my learning style. Thank you
