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

TDC isn't just about the test questions, it teaches you how to think and study. I really love how organized the program was. I felt confident after completing the program because it covered the perfect amount of information to pass the test. I also love that this program prepares you mentally for the exam and gives you tips for the exam day! With TDC, I felt like I had a social worker who helped me through this journey. I also liked that you can ask a coach questions! Thank you very much for a great program!

Passed the ASWB clinical exam this week and so glad to be DONE! I appreciated the structure of TDC... I had been struggling trying to put together my own study materials and to structure my plan. I felt so much relief simply by starting TDC, knowing that the materials were trustworthy and contained just what I needed... I wasted a lot of time before that weeding through all the different things out there online. Coaches were responsive to my requests for help when trying to understand some of the test rationales, and I liked that I could listen to lectures in the car, on the go, or laying in bed. :) Although the quality of the practice tests is good, the quantity is GREAT! Many other programs only offer 1 test to go with their program. TDC offers 2 short mocks and 2 long mocks and they were invaluable in helping me prepare. Thank you, TDC!

Excellent study course! Definitely help me pass both my ethics and clinical exam on the first try. I was well prepared with TDC

I am thrilled to say that I passed my exam on my first try with the support of TDC! I really appreciated the focus on taking care of your mind and body during the preparation process and I feel that it put me in a better state of mind for the exam. The emphasis on values/ethics and the "first"/"then" questions was crucial as that content made up most of the exam. I also tried to take the half and full mock exams at the same time as the actual exam, as recommended. I made sure to have a full meal before the test and take juice for the breaks, as they did not allow me to consume food during the exam breaks. I also found stretching during my breaks was helpful for my body and mind not to feel as fatigued. Heidi was a huge support for me when I needed further clarification on content and answer rationales!

I was very much so in fear about taking the LCSW exam. I felt self-denial with labeling myself as having test anxiety, and just getting in my whole head. I purchased TDC. The month before taking my test I decided to only use TDC due to feeling overwhelmed by studying through two other programs. I followed the study guide thoroughly, and passed. I feel beyond blessed.

I'm so thankful for TDC's guidance in passing the ASWB exam! The test prep had the knowledge I needed as well as the tips for managing my anxiety during the exam. I felt very prepared walking into the exam. Thank you!

This program had me so well prepared for the exam. I went in to the test feeling nervous but as soon as I started I felt relief and confidence. Thanks to TDC I nailed it!

Prior to purchasing TDC I was all over the place and inconsistent with studying for the exam. It was difficult to stay motivated since the material I was using was hard to understand and boring. TDC was a game changer! Their lectures were engaging and I love how they help you setup a realistic study schedule. I went into the exam feeling prepared and confident. The questions on the actual exam were very similar to the TDC questions. Not once did I come across a question where I felt like it was not a topic covered on TDC. I am so grateful for this program.

Very grateful for the professional services your company has rendered!

TDC was so helpful! I passed on the first time using TDC. They graciously gave me extensions when I was unable to schedule my test, as well! Their mocks (aside from the ASWB mock) was the closest to the actual exam. Highly recommend!!

I am excited to say that on April 5, 2021, I took the LCSW exam for the first time and passed!

TDC was very helpful! I passed the ASWB LCSW exam on my first attempt with nine minutes left to spare. One on one tutoring with Heidi was super helpful and helped with my confidence. I was discouraged as most of my colleagues have failed the exam on their first attempt, but felt more confident once I was able to talk questions through on a one on one basis. The practice exams were the most helpful to get a real feel for the exam, I wish I would have completed them earlier. Maybe some practice questions earlier on in the program would be helpful, otherwise no complaints. I am very grateful for TDC helping me to become an LCSW.

TDC helped me feel incredibly prepared and the test-day prep helped me get my head in the game! I knew what the test would really be asking me and how to choose from the available answers. I would recommend it to anyone taking the ASWB Exam!

I’m an auditory learner, I really need things repeated over and over again. (I’m also a singer and performer and compare some of this to how I memorize lyrics and learn lines). I really think this program covers EVERYTHING you need without overwhelming you with a bunch of stuff that is unnecessary. They have materials for you, you can practice and I actually felt confident. I’m very anxious naturally and have blood sugar issues in addition, and I was a bit shocked (in a good way) at how this program deals with the biological aspects of learning.

Amanda also has a pretty calming voice as does Bethany and the other people featured. I only used this for a month but it worked. For others I may recommend a more spaced out timeline if that works for you.

This program helped me prepare for the LCSW exam. I honestly believe I would not have have passed without it! It is set up very methodically and organized. Especially the DSM part. This was causing me much anxiety, and after listening and taking the exam, I felt so much more confident. I highly recommend!

Wow! Thank you TDC. I went into the exam confident and well prepared. I put off taking the exam for multiple years as the thought of how to study for it was too daunting. I truly feel that using your study program took the mystery out of the exam and prepared me to be successful and pass the first time! I highly recommend this program to all that are wanting to go into the exam prepared and confident.

The therapist development center helped me a ton, 4 years after graduating and almost believing I would never remember it all. It has just enough of each category to help me prepare for the types of questions I would get in the real exam. Doing the practices tests and exams, and studying the rationales had me pass with more than just one or two points! With some mindfulness and manifestation, the exam was a success on my first try!

I put off taking this exam until my last renewal year because I was overwhelmed by the study programs and materials that were out there and afraid that I had waited so long and was “too busy” to take the needed time to study. Every time I started a program or researched a course, my perspective on the test changed. A colleague highly recommended TDC so I invested and easily passed on my first attempt. I couldn’t have utilized a better program to work this test. I took half the time allotted and heard Amanda in my ear throughout the exam as I worked each question! I am so relieved to move forward and would recommend TDC to everyone!

I honestly ended up cramming for the exam and really only gave myself about 3-4 weeks to study everything. TDC was helpful though and I really did hear Amanda's voice in my head on the exam. What I like about TDC are the organized handouts, tips, rationales/explanations, and the quizzes. Obviously TDC cannot and does not go over literally everything, so there were just a few (maybe 10-15) questions that asked about things TDC didn't go over, but I still got an incredible foundation with TDC that did help me prepare for the exam. I know I would not have passed without TDC.

I loved the way TDC organized the program content with the lectures, quiz's, study sheets. They hit every topic that I needed to know on the test. I past the first time and I’m so grateful to God and TDC.
