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 was extremely helpful in building my confidence andeith the topics of review. Amanda and Bethany were informative and supportive in their presentation. The coaches were responsive both times that I reached out to them. They were supportive and professional !!! Thank you !!!!!

After taking this exam once in March, and using another study program that left me feeling ill prepared and anxious I knew I needed to do something different this time around. I took the TDC seriously, I did each section, I felt like I was in the room with the instructor. I enjoyed what I was learning, and felt it went over the topics in may ways. I heard it, saw it, and had a chance to practice it. I took my exam today- and I passed with flying colors! More importantly, the entire time I felt confident and calm! For someone with anxiety, this test prep was exactly what I needed! I shouted I pass, and recommended this to anyone in the SW field today! Thanks again!

I passed the LCSW exam after two failed attempts. This program was very good; clear, simple and straight to the point. I am a better skilled therapist as a result of this program. Thank You, Marcee Sibson

Trust the Process and TDC will get you through!

I really appreciated the Quick Study guides and audio breakdowns. I am a macro social worker and often spend my time surrounded by paperwork. Having this program to support with the clinical areas and to actually break down the logic and rationale was amazingly helpful. I also appreciated Hollie's feedback and support along with the collective study group via Facebook. Thank you for all of your help!

Thank you, Amanda, Heidi, and the rest of the TDC team. I passed the clinical exam on my first time!! My friend recommended TDC to me at a time when my career path was suddenly changed due to state funding cuts. As I made plans to relocate out of state, it became necessary for me to complete the clinical exam in order to acquire an equivalent position (and income). With the wonderful TDC materials, participation in the online study group, emails and phone calls with a coach, and the meditation provided in the Blog I was prepared to pass the exam. I encourage other's approaching examinations to trust the TDC program as it is presented. By embracing the materials, you will not only receive the necessary knowledge but you will also gain tools/strategies that enhance your ability to understand and process the exam questions. Best of luck to future TDC students. ~~ Kristen Morgan

TDC was a wonderful tool to help me strategize and pass the LCSW exam. Such a wonderful study program. Fast responses from tutors who had great tips to pass the exam. The TDC community on FB was also very helpful. I really enjoyed the whole process of this. It definitely made studying a lot easier.

I felt prepared going into the exam. About half way through I started to doubt myself. I took a break and came back ready to attack the test. I really appreciate the TDC program.

The audio was engaging, enthusuastic, personable and knowledgeable and therefore wonderfully memorable and download study materials with quizzes were precidely integrated. Outstanding review for the board exam for new or older social workers who graduated recently or decades ago!! When I graduated at age 65 with second career in social work I went almost immediately into my loved journey with Hospice, thinking that's where I'd retire. But now at age 82 I'm exploring other options too that require a license. This course was just what I needed to bring back all those clinical ethical principles to not just pass the board exam but to clarify what our career choice is all about as I launch into a clinical geriatric practice!! I felt/feel prepared for both thanks to your incredibly solid foundation!! You're amazing!! I hope to meet you in person sometime!!

I was first licensed nearly 30 years ago and let the license expire. My state required me to test again in order to acquire a new license. I think this program prepared me well for the exam and I passed on the first attempt with no difficulty. I highly recommend this approach!

I passed!!!! Thank you TDC.

Therapist Development Center really prepares you for the LCSW exam. The depth of information (audio, quizzes and mock exams) paint a realistic picture of what to expect when taking the exam. The guides on thinking through scenarios helps with problem solving difficult case examples was invaluable.

TDC was an amazing help! At first I felt a little overwhelmed by the volume of content. I took a little time to fully commit. Once I trusted myself I began to let the program build upon my base of knowledge. It all began to click! I passed my first try, with a score of 119, and needing 99. I felt confident and prepared upon entering the test center. I recommend this program to all of my colleagues!

TDC's study material is designed to give the learner a solid foundation and help the learner understand the exam questions. TDC's mock exams are very similar to the clinical exam and give the learner an authentic feel for what to expect during test time.

The organization was the main reason I even considered this program as well as the audio options that I could stream while I commuted. The organization really really helped decrease my anxiety. I would recommend this program to everybody!

Thanks so much TDC! Definitely worth the investment! The material covered, not only prepares you for the exam, but in my opinion necessary for all LCSW's to know and have as a reference. Thank you so much!

I work full time and am a mom. I really did not want to spend the time having to figure out what to study. TDC really helped streamline the studying process and if you follow the program, i think you will be successful. I am so glad that this program told me what to study, what to zero in on and provided great mock tests, which very much emulate the types of questions you'll find on the exam.

After failing my LCSW exam the first time, I knew I needed a reliable and proven study program to help me pass. I used TDC 2 years ago to pass my LMSW exam and again this time. Of all study programs out there (I’ve tried a few) TDC is hands down one of the best without a doubt. During the exam, I felt like Amanda and Bethany were walking me through the questions to help deduce the answers. I never felt more confident during an exam and knew I was passing because I was so well prepared. Thank you TDC for staying with me until the very end. You were the best investment I made in allowing me to advance in my career!

TDC adequately prepared me for the ASWB clinical masters exam; I passed on my first attempt! The study materials were incredibly helpful; the handouts followed along with the lectures, and the quizzes/ tests helped to solidify the information. What I loved most about this study guide was that I wasn't worrying about the test outside of set aside study time-- I was still able to enjoy my life without feeling the need to study 24/7.

Very prepared loved the program!
