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 highly recommend TDC.
You will be supported on all counts: time management, excellent customer service, personal coach, tech support, truly amazing! I tried different companies and TDC is by far the most organized, straight to the point, know what they doing. You will be supported all the way until you pass. Worth every cent. Good luck to you!

Therapist Development Center prepares you 100% for this exam. The program covers all necessary content but does not go super in-depth like some other study materials which is good. They focus on exactly what you need to know and help you to approach the questions with confidence. I took 7 weeks to prepare and felt confident going into the exam. I passed 12 questions over what was needed which was a HUGE confidence booster as i previously felt that i am a poor test taker. Thank you for helping me approach this exam with confidence and helping me pass!

I wanted to have the best chance possible to pass Florida's LCSW Exam on my first attempt. I used a different 1 day (8 hour) preparation course 6 months before my test date and felt unprepared to tackle the Licensure Exam. My colleague mentioned to me that they failed several attempts at passing the exam before they discovered the Therapist Development Center. Once they went through the TDC program they sailed through the Exam passing by 9 points. Another registered intern, that shares the same Clinical Supervisor as I, failed the test twice before investing in the TDC program. This intern encouraged me to do the same since I wanted to pass on my first attempt. I did and passed the LCSW Exam on my VERY FIRST ATTEMPT!! This program is WELL WORTH the investment in your future. I will be recommending this program to everyone looking to pass the LCSW Exam. It is very comprehensive, the subject matter is easy to understand and makes the clinical concepts feel more real and recognizable in my clinical work. I really appreciate the Team at The Therapist Development Center for creating such a valuable tool! Thank you for accompanying me on my journey to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker!

This is the most comprehensive prep test around. All the different ways of learning the competencies from lectures, top 50, special topics etc.

I was so intimidated by the dauting process of studying for the clinical exam that I had been putting it off for as long as I could. I had initially purchased the prep program prior to COVID thinking that I would study, but it did not happen. I was able to request an extension and I got into study mode. TDC LCSW prep program really helped breakdown what I needed to know for the test and how much time I should spend for each. This was such a helpful program and could not recommend it more!

I highly recommend TDC. The course was arranged in a well organized matter and broken down into very manageable steps that made studying so much easier. Taking this course reduced my test anxiety dramatically and i was very well prepared. The careful design of the program made it very user friendly and maximizes recall and understanding of the needed social work concepts. I'm very happy i did this program and you will too! I passed on my first try!!!

I am finally an LCSW. Taking some time off work and really using the study guide

I followed the TDC sample 5 week study program. The TDC system works, as long as you put in the effort. In my opinion it is designed to educate while improving confidence. On test day I was prepared and ready to attack the LCSW exam. Even though I had been out of school for 4 years, TDC helped me to pass on my first attempt. Thank you TDC!!

I would not have passed the LCSW without the TDC course. It made all the difference in my studying and preparation. For me personally, the exam did not focus heavily on terminology, medication or many recall questions. However, the study material from TDC made me more competent and confident with taking the exam. There was only maybe 3-4 questions that I hadn't seen/prepared myself for. I am so grateful for the TDC and helping me pass my LCSW!

I really did think “what Amanda do?”
The test is a head-game and a test of stamina. I’m so relieved it’s over. Thank you so much.

This was my 5th time taking this exam. Everytime I felt defeated by it when I failed and felt I would never pass. Thanks to this program, I passed! I was so shocked at the screen seeing my results. Still feels surreal to me. Just glad it's over with. Wouldn't have been able to do it without TDC. Highly recommend it!

It brings tears to my eyes that I’m finally the person writing the testimonial that I once saw multiple others write on the website. This course is the most helpful and personal experience I’ve had with a study course. The questions really helped me feel prepared for the exam! Also, there’s no magic answer to passing the exam but do what works for you. I struggled with tests all my life and realized I need to do and pay for what it takes!

PERFECT program! Casual/ personal feel but thorough and structured and positive. Thank you so much!!! Felt SO prepared, just by following along. No stressing about how much to study what material.

I felt like Amanda was sitting with me during the exam. It was so helpful to feel like I wasn’t going at it alone. I listened to the recordings on long drives to help reinforce the information. I appreciated the thoroughness of this program and especially the rationales for the quizzes and mock exams. The final pep talk was also a special touch. I kept listening to it so when I would get nervous, I would hear Amanda in my head telling me to not be scared but instead to attack the exam. To pass. Thank you all!

I would not have been able to pass this course without this program. I could hear Amanda in my ear on some of my questions that were tough!! I will definitely recommend this to all my fellow social worker friends!

I literally sat down and said, “Come on Amanda, let’s rock this test”. I felt sooooo confident taking. I was thankful for having juice. I was getting sleepy by question 85, I took a break and drank my orange juice and came back to smash it.

I want to say thank you to therapist development center for preparing me for this exam. The last time that I took this exam was 14 years ago and needless to say I was not motivated to study for the exam again. This course provided me with the structure that I needed in order to gain that motivation and dedicate the last few months to studying again. This course was much better than the other study materials that I had previously. I will definitely recommend this course to others. Thanks again!

Yesterday I passed the LCSW exam on the first try! I credit my performance on the exam to TDC. Unlike other systems, TDC offers a study system that is comprehensive, designed by social workers who have taken the exam and appropriate for various learning styles. The Top 50 Topics, quick studies, practice and mock exams were all impeccable tools in my study arsenal. However, what I benefited from the MOST was listening to Amanda tackle topics and practice questions from different angles. This approach is what separates TDC from other study systems. Other study systems promote a "one size fits all" approach to answering questions on ASWB exams that don't work. I felt confident going into the test with the tools and guidance that TDC provided. I highly recommend TDC with no reservations!!!!!! Thank you, Amanda!

The course was very helpful. Must put in the time to benefit for program.

I felt that this program really prepared me for the test. It was great at having me study what I really needed to know and all of the practice exams made me feel very prepared.
