National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 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 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!).

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 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.

Amazing program! Thank you so much!

I just passed my exam and I owe a BIG thanks to TDC! I am beyond excited!! TDC thoroughly prepared me for the exam and provided me with knowledge and confidence needed to pass my exam. Loved every aspect of the program, as it helped me structure and organize my learning. Thank you TDC!

During grad school, my anxiety would always increase when talking about the licensing exam and the best way to prepare for it. When it was recommended to me to try the TDC program, I looked into it and it seemed to be a really great guide to what was going to be on the exam. BOY WAS THAT AN UNDERSTATEMENT! This program really helped me adjust my way of thinking about the exam, taught me how to break down the questions in order to answer them correctly, and ultimately helped me pass the first time trying! I am so glad I was told about TDC!

I would recommend anyone and everyone to sign up for TDC. Yes it is on the pricey side BUT they will stick with you until you pass with no questions asked. Prior to taking their course I did some studying on my own and I did not pass, I always came up short. I missed it by 9 points the first time and second time I missed it by 1. But both times I went in I did not feel prepared. But this time I went in nervous but oddly enough feeling sure of myself. I was more nervous because I didn't want to believe that this was almost over for me!! I would definitely recommend that everyone listen to the Code of Ethics section and do the practices test for it. That is the key to passing I believe in addition to doing all of the exams and quizzes. Overall, this is by far the best program out there! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, TDC!!!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

I found the program very helpful. I appreciated the audio, electronic and paper resources that were made available. The overall style and structure of the program prepared me well for the test. Thank you!

I appreciated TDC's flexibility during my study time and my subscription. My mom was going through cancer treatment and unfortunately passed away in May this year. I was able to study the guides, take the quizzes and mock tests, and listed to the audio that was very helpful to my studying. Thank you!
