LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
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 am so elated I chose TDC as my study partner. With its discipline method and outlines, I was able to focus on not only subject content, but to clearly answer the questions asked. I really appreciated the explanation of questions I got incorrect. It was extremely helpful to imagine myself in the room when answering the test questions.
Although I had some anxiety regarding the test, I felt a little more prepared in taking the test with the structure TDC provided. I would highly recommend TDC and would strongly consider it after my two year experience as a LCSW in pursuit of my LICSW.

TDC prepared me well for the LCSW exam. I hadn't taken the exam before so wanted to go into it prepared. It took me 1.5 hours out of the 4 hour maximum allowed time to complete the exam. I felt confident going into it, and felt that TDC had just the right amount of quizzes, lectures and mock exams. A friend of mine purchased TDC around the same time I did, and we both studied together once a week leading up to our exam. It worked out great! It was also her first attempt at the exam and she passed as well!

I whole heartedly recommend the TDC test prep! TDC taught me how to approach each question carefully, take my time and most importantly not to freak out. I had a goal of taking the ASWB/LCSW exam once, one and done, and I passed! I really appreciated the learn and listen section, the top 50 topics and practice exams. I liked the 48 hour prep talk and took your advice of exercising the day before the exam. I also took the full exam #2 the day of the exam to get me into exam mode. I will recommend the TDC test prep to my colleagues preparing for their exams!

I just passed my LICSW Exam yesterday on the first try! I am so thrilled and so satisfied with the LICSW Program through Therapist Development Center. Not only did this program help me pass my exam, I learned A TON as well! So thankful. Y'all are THE BEST!

Several of my friends failed their exam the first time so I was determined to pass. TDC did an incredible job preparing me! Not only did I confidently walk into the exam, but I was very pleased with my score. I highly recommend this study prep, it truly is the only one you need!

This program was great, I was able to pass my LCSW and really understand what the questions where asking me. Thank you TDC!

Thank you so much for creating this study system. I would not have passed without going through this program. It helped me to understand how to answer the questions and covered all of the relevant information. I felt so unsure and like I was failing during the entire exam. I could hear Amanda's voice saying to be okay with the uncertainty. I ended up passing and scoring way higher than what was required. THANK YOU!

I love how in depth this program was and it definitely helped build my confidence for this exam!

After failing 3 times, I knew I needed a program that would offer me a bit of structure and how to reason through questions. This program offered just that and so much more.I’d recommend this to anyone in need of support in prepping for their licensing exam. Thanks for everything!

I went through the course twice and passed easily. I did everything exactly as the course recommended, and not only did I pass, I also maintained my composure, and managed my test anxiety. So glad I brought juice for the break. It revved up my brain for the second half.

What a great and thorough program! It was helpful to have the audios to go back and reference. The quizzes and all the exams were a game changer!

I have used TDC for my Ethics exam and passed the first try, so I decided to use it again. I gave myself plenty of time to go through the different sections and used the numerous practice exams to get used to the questions. I felt well prepared and passed my test the first time.

This program was extremely helpful. It adequately covered all areas of the exam and how to think about the questions on the exam. I felt supported by TDC when I needed to extend my time and reached out to the team with questions.

Thank you so much for this course and for all of your support. I completed this course over a 4 month time frame, working full-time in a new job and a single mom of three children. I could not have passed the exam without you. The format was very organized. I liked the lectures that went along with the printables, for both visual and auditory learning. I passed the exam at 84%. I listened to the final lecture, the night before the exam, and took Amanda's advice on when to take a break, etc. I really think it helped. Thank you, again! :)

This program facilitated a great macro-perspective of the content needed to pass the test. I specially enjoyed the auditory material and respective Quick Studies. This is a great strategy when you need lots of structure, support, and you have limited time to study due to life stressors.

I have been out of school for 25 years, and had to take the LCSW test for Michigan. I am 49 years old and I missed the grandfathering period, 15 years ago because I was starting a family. Some of the therapeutic techniques were non existent in 1995. On top of this test, I also had to take the CAADC exam in the same year. I failed the LCSW exam twice. The 2nd time, by 3 questions. I received an waiver from ASWB to re take the test under 90 days. I was placed on an LOA from work, because I did not have a current MSW license. I had 6 days to prepare to take the test for the 3rd time. I signed up for TDC on a Sat and did the program in 5 days. Granted, it was some review, but they were the only ones who helped explained how to narrow down my answers. They also provided good key words to remember diagnosis's. I listened to all the lectures, and took all the tests, except one. I raised my score 11 points and passed!! I can also say, I learned some things along the way. I wish I would have spent the money for the program, the first time around

Being a mom with two under 2, it was impossible to start reading books and getting organized so my sister told me about this program. This made it so much easier to study: I would listen to the lectures on the go and do everything on my phone (while the babies were sleeping). And I passed the first time taking the LCSW exam!!! I must say the program prepared me very well. I got 78 and 75 on the mock exams and I passed the LCSW exam by 2 points.. so make sure you do well on the mock exams cuz for me it reflected how I did on the actual exam. Good luck!

I am so happy I used this program, I passed the LCSW exam today on my first try. This is an excellent program, very well structured- I would definitely recommend this to anyone taking the exam. The mock exams were especially useful, overall it was a great experience, worth every penny.

The program was helpful for me in that it focused on the information I needed to pass the exam, not a bunch of stuff I didn't need. As someone who experiences test anxiety this was a HUGE factor in my success. Thank you Therapist Development Center!

I appreciate Therapist Development Center for kicking my butt! The exams were challenging and gave me an opportunity to know where I needed to freshen up. This is my 2nd time using TDC. First, with my Law and Ethics and now with my Clinical Exam and both times I passed in the 1st try!
