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.

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 had heard horror stories about people having to take the exam multiple times and feeling defeated by the exam. I passed my LCSW exam on the first try. There were no surprises. Everything TDC prepped me for was there. This is the only program you'll need. One and done; just trust the process

I am so grateful for "Therapist Development Center." I graduated with my Master's in social work in 2012, so I have been out of the education realm for a long time. I started preparing for this exam in 2014, then again in 2016, 2017, and now 2018. I have had my fair share of test taking for this exam, along with the tremendous expense which came with it. I had ordered flash cards, books, apps, attended University study exam preps, and finally decided to try "Therapist Development Center." I wish I had known about this from the beginning. The program was outlined in a way that made sense and easy to follow as my guide. The material, both audio and study guides were "100% on point" with questions asked on the exam. The full mock exams DEFINATELY provided you with a sense of passing or failing. My initial time using this program, I failed the mock exams by one point. I went ahead and tested anyway, and failed the exam by the same one point. I requested a reset for the program in preparation of studying my weaker areas, which were granted. I then studied again, taking the mock exams again, but this time passing both. I went for my testing today and PASSED. I almost PASSED out once the results were provided. I thought I would have never passed this test. Keep doing what you are doing, as this educational study site is THE BEST. This is the ONLY study guide/site anyone will require when studying for their LCSW. I thank you for being there for me through this gruesome journey. I PASSED, and finally the elephant has been removed from my chest. Thanks Therapist Development Center, I owe it ALL to you!!!

I am so grateful for TDC. The exam was difficult but I was well prepared. I strongly recommend this program :)

I passed on the first try. I was well prepared by this program, and was so pleased to see so many questions that were familiar to me from the TDC practice test questions. I can't thank you enough! Amanda is my new hero! Thanks again!

I cannot say enough about how much TDC helped me to pass my exam on my FIRST try! For the past several months I was using random study guides, the Apgar study guide book, and took the ASWB online practice exam... but I still didn't feel fully prepared for my exam that I had already scheduled. I stumbled across TDC when I had about 2 weeks until my exam date. I impulsively purchased this because I was desperate to pass my exam and saw all the good reviews. This program did not disappoint me. I studied for HOURS every single day in the hopes that I could complete the entire program and feel prepared right before my exam. I loved all the audio recordings and the way this program is organized. Especially, teaching us HOW to answer the reasoning types of questions that are on the exam. My regret is that I wish I knew about this program sooner and didn't wait until the last minute. I literally would not have passed my exam without this program!!

This course was easy to follow, understand and work through. The practice exams and mock exams really helped me feel comfortable during the test. The program taught me how to break down the questions and how to put the answers in order to determine what should be done first.

Great program. TDC provides a solid foundation for the LCSW exam. Would recommend listening to audio lectures multiple times.

This was my second attempt at the exam. Going into the exam this time, I felt calm and more confident in my knowledge and ability to pass. All the material, but especially the mock exams, helped me tremendously! I’m so thankful to TDC!

I took the LCSW exam twice before jumping on the TDC wagon. I haven't regretted it and have told others about how much it has helped to organized such a broad test into study sections. This helped me organized and be able to the different exam areas of the LCSW test that I had previously not done well in. Although costly, it was worth the investment.

TDC was incredibly helpful in orienting me towards the exam questions and thought process for the answers. It helped focus my studying and the quizzes and mock exams were very close to the actual exam.

Thank you soooo much with understanding the "wording" of the exam and how to control my anxiety during this difficult time :)

I’ve taken the clinical exam a few times missing it by a couple of points each time. It became increasingly frustrating and I wasn’t sure if I ever was going to pass. However, my coworkers told me about this study program so I thought I would give it a shot. Very in-depth program and gave me varies ways to absorb the information. I am happy to say it made me feel confident on the test and I ended up with a PASS! Very happy that I gave this program a shot! Highly recommend!

Love love love!
Thank you TDC!

TDC worked great because it prepared me material-wise as well as mentally. I was able to pass on the first try (needed 102 got 126). I also appreciated the support through emails and the facebook group. I will recommend TDC to everyone wanting to pass the LCSW clinical exam. Thank you!!

The program is well developed and easy to follow. It offers multiple quizzes, practice tests and mock exams to help prepare you for the actual exam.

The week I turn 64 and have been licensed in another state since 1984 and found myself having to start over. There's no way I would have passed my first time without TDC. I am so grateful for your knowledge, encouragement and passion for preparing others in our profession! Thank you, Terry Villacruz

I am truly appreciative of the TDC program. I love how the program addressing the various ways individuals learn. The lectures, handouts practice test are amazing. I had previously used another study program and failed the test twice. I then changed to TDC and passed on the first attempt after using our program. Thank You!!!!!!

I simply can't thank the TDC enough!! What a fabulously thorough & effective study preparation toolkit. I aced my LCSW test. Moving forward, I'll be sharing this resource with ALL who will listen!!

I passed the second time taking the test. I focused mostly on the audio lectures, quick study guides and reviewing the rationals provided by the exams. I did have material from another popular program but it paled in comparison. I listened to the audio files while I was doing housework, on my lunch breaks, and in the car. Additionally, utilizing self-care the day before the exam and the morning of was crucial to my success. Thank you TDC!!!!

I passed my LCSW exam while 36 weeks pregnant and working full time. This program by far surpass my expectation and it was worth the fee. I would highly recommend TDC, if you want to pass your exam.
