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 is truly amazing!

I found this program sooooo helpful in preparing for the clinical exam! Listening to the lectures, reviewing notes, and the full mock exams were the most impactful in my learning. Although the written explanations were helpful with the mock exams, I think I wish they were auditory lectures. The piece of advice that resonated most with me in the final lecture were tolerating uncertainty, reading the test questions word-for-word and attacking the test.

I really like to material provided along with the calendar. I especially appreciated having an LCSW available for consultation as well as getting the responses very fast. Thank you very much again, you guys are wesome!!!

Passed on the first try! It was hard but I felt so prepared because of this program. At first, the thought of studying for this test was overwhelming. I appreciated the way the study schedule was laid out. I felt like I could do it and that I had a supportive team behind me! Thank you so much!

This system is super comprehensive but easy to follow. The audio lectures were the biggest asset to me personally because they allowed me to study on the go. This feature was a selling point for me when deciding on a test prep.

This is an amazing program!

I was so excite when I passed the test. I needed a pass score of 99. I ended up scoring 103. The study materials thoroughly prepared me for the clinical social work exam.

TDC helped me tremendously!! It is clear and helps you think through the questions. LOVED this prep course- best money spent!

I felt very supported by the TDC team after I failed the exam the first time. It made a big difference in why I passed second time out. Thank you!

After completing the entire program, and taking ALL of the TDC clinical mock exams and then taking the actual ASWB LCSW exam, I can honestly say that the content was very similar, and conceptually, there were no surprises. I did not feel like the structure of the exam questions were more difficult after using TDC. I felt very comfortable and prepared, with the structure of the exam questions. So glad I used TDC to not only pass the LCSW clinical exam, but also to pass the CA Law and Ethics exam. Thank you to the TDC team.

I think that TDC prepared me well for my clinical exam! English is not my first la gauge and I wasn’t concern that I wouldn’t pass on my first try! But after studying daily for 5 weeks, following the program, attacking the exam with confident, and trusting myself, I passed and I am proud of myself. I recommend TDC 100% even if English is not your first language! You will be prorated to pass with confidence.

I am very thankful and happy to report back that I have passed my LCSW exam yesterday. It has been one of the most difficult exams I’ve ever taken. However, I felt prepared and more calm than I expected! Thank you TDC!

I felt adequately prepared to take and pass this exam. You all did an amazing job with creating this study system. It was extremely helpful!!! I am so grateful and appreciative of every step included in this program.

I LOVED TDC! I felt incredibly prepared. I found the material covered to be extensive and presented in an obtainable format. All through the test when I found myself in doubt I could hear the TDC creators in my head. It was so helpful. I can’t wait to tell more people about it

TDC was an incredible program that was very well suited to my learning style and study needs! I have always has significant test anxiety and challenges focusing and recalling information. The most beneficial piece of this program were the audios! I listened to them while I was driving, walking the dog, hiking and working out. I also am very appreciative for the TDC support group and support from the coaches, especially Heidi! I e-mailed Heidi with several questions in which she promptly responded and provided much clarification for me!!! Thank you TDC!

I PASSED my clinical exam the FIRST time and I am so happy and grateful. TDC's structure and suggestions are on point with my experience of the exam. I was not surprised with any of the questions. Thank you!

Utilizing the TDC program for studying my LCSW exam was such a huge part of my success. Before I purchased the program I felt overwhelmed with all the material in the book I was using and I felt it wasn't adequately organized to help me retain the concepts. Once a friend told me about TDC I was instantly impressed. The audio lectures made it so much easier to digest the material and it felt like having a friend guide you along the way. I truly felt that I was taught what I needed to know. The most significant part of the program were the multiple Mock Exams that I could take and the in depth explanations of each question. This made me feel prepared and confident when I went into the exam and added greatly to my overall success.

Just wanted to give you some feedback that your LCSW prep course more than prepared me for the LCSW exam! There were no subject matters on the exam that surprised me and the depth of the content on was perfect for what the exam was testing. I entered the exam relaxed and was confident in most of my answers. I would highly recommend the course to anyone and everyone preparing for the exam. Lectures on narrowing decision processes on questions that were not clear where very helpful in managing an test anxiety. Thank you so much!! My exam needed 99 to pass, and I scored 118.

I was a nervous wreck and have a history of doing poorly on standardized exams. I knew I had to pass the exam for a position I had just accepted. TDC helped tremendously in not only preparing me with the material, but lowering my anxiety levels significantly around the exam. I not only felt well prepared in the material, but had significantly less stress because I didn't feel like I had to worry about whether or not I was studying the right material. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I really struggled with previous study programs and have been trying for the LCSW for over a year. I started you guys just two months ago and followed it pretty much to the letter and was consistent. The material and visual style of learning was great. I have a visual impairment so the pod casts were a big help and very practical. All of the quizzes and mock tests were key for me too. I have not one negative thing to say about this program and would recommend it with out a doubt.
