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 passed my LCSW exam today! TDC really helped me change my way of thinking and breaking down the reasoning based questions.

The TDC study program most definitely prepared me for the ASWB Clinical Exam. The most valuable aspect of the program was learning how to think about the questions. When I sat down to take the test, the style was familiar and I knew how to approach questions and feel confident about my answers.

I would recommend TDC. They really break down things and help you understand. I am so thankful I passed my exam.

The preparation course was incredibly well designed! The lectures and all collateral material geared towards adult learning, the process and content are exceptional and the overall curriculum design was absolutely perfect. Thank yo so much for designing an outstanding prep course, presenting the material in a way that respect the student/consumer/clinician, and for creating the context that supports reasoning and critical thinking. I went into the exam feeling supported and left feeling successful. Thank you!

If you value your time, bite the bullet and pay for this course. It efficiently and thoroughly helps you prepare. I've never felt so confident walking into a licensure test. Well worth the money!

TDC was very helpful for me because I’m an auditory learner. The downloads were great and I took the quizzes multiple times to help me remember the content. I used other ways to study but I feel TDC was the most helpful. I procrastinated 18 years because I didn’t need it for my job but also because I didn’t have confidence that I could pass. I’m so glad that I made a commitment to study and take the exam. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much! The way you explain how to test and study was extremely beneficial. The mocks were very helpful. I will tell everyone about TDC!! Thank you!!

Yes, I was so uncertain about my ability to pass the LCSW exam. I graduated from the MSW program 20 years ago. Life happened. I became serious about becoming licensed about 10 years ago and didn't know where to begin with preparing. I completed a 2 day training program, purchased supporting manuals, cds and DVDs from a well-known and popular educator. I later purchased an online study program which was basically reading 4 volumes and taking a practice test. Although well meaning, these study programs did not meet my study needs. TDC tied everything together for me. Being able to have a study plan, go at my own pace, listen to lectures over and over again, and to quiz myself along the way helped significantly. Each time I took a quiz or mock exam and noticed my score improving, boosted my confidence. What I believe helped me the most was the ability to practice sitting for 4 hour stretches and complete the practice tests. TDC is a system that helps you build up for the finale. I felt completely prepared for this exam. I was quite nervous as to be expected; however, once settled in the testing room I felt like I was in my study environment as if I was taking another practice exam. The exam was successful for me due to the preparation lectures and having the confidence to advocate for myself with the testing site. I really needed the juice to help me. I also found prayer, meditation and yoga stretches to help me with focus. Thanks so much TDC!! I needed 103 and earned 109!

Practice exams with rationales really prepare you for the exam! helped me to feel confident on exam day!

TDC did an amazing job of preparing me for my LCSW exam. The system provides one with the information needed to succeed and supports the values outlined in the Code of Ethics. I am so happy I used TDC.

I previously used TDC for my California Law and Ethics exam (passed it) and knew then it would be a must for my clinical exam. The way the system is set up and the audio aspects cater perfectly to my learning style. Having plenty of practice questions gave me the confidence going into the exam that I would be just fine. I passed the actual exam with an 86% which is similar to what I got on the TDC practice exams, so that tells me the materials are on point with the real exam. Thanks for being so great TDC!

Thank you TDC for preparing me for and passing the LCSW licensure exam!

Thank you Therapist Development Center for helping me pass my LCSW exam!! I passed on my first try all thanks to this amazing study program. I felt well prepared and confident going into the exam using this program. The audio lectures were especially helpful. I definitely recommend this study course!!

My journey started in the summer of 2020. I allowed a thought from a colleague to stay in my soul space too long "you wouldn't be able to get a test date until December 2020." My first test date was July 31. I realized it was the wrong time of day. The evening at 7 PM. I took my second test on October 31. I felt rushed taking the examination and I booked an appointment after the exam knowing I had the exam as the MAIN THING ON MY CALENDAR. On my third, January 30, 2021; I settled into the testing space, I took the test at the best time for me (early AM), I paused, closed my eyes, and settled with a prayer. I did not book anything else on my calendar. I looked at every question as if it was the very first question. This mind game helped me with relaxation and clarity of thought. I PASSED!

Thank you for all the help with my LICSW. Its been a tough few months with contracting COVID and the loss of my mother this pass month. I was apprehensive on taking the exam at this time. However, I listened to your suggestions in regards to eating fruit etc and mostly imagining you guys were in there with me going over the questions and it helped! I passed!!! Thank you so much for the support and understanding over the year.

Having all the different study material was super helpful. I completed everything at least twice -- appreciated having the option to retake quizzes and half mocks for practice purposes. Would listen to lectures while driving to my clients throughout the work week. Now I just gotta figure out what to do with all my leftover juice boxes..

Best tool to use to practice and prepare for the LCSW exam. Course was designed to hep me think critically and problem-solve each question. The Code of Ethics section was the highlight of the program and truly helped me decipher each dilemma during the exam.

Program is great for practice, practice, and practice. Doing so helped to remember key points and gain confidence over the ASWB Clinical test.

This program is amazing. I passed the exam first time. It's the only program I needed to use and it prepared me so well for the LCSW exam. Would highly recommend!

This course was very helpful for me. I struggle with just reading material, so the audio, print outs and quizzes were much more geared toward my learning style. This gave me much more confidence and faith I would pass this time around, and I did with an 83%!
