Price: $295.00

Our 2019 LCSW Exam Study System prepares social workers to pass the CLINICAL Level Exam administered by the ASWB. Our 2019 LCSW Exam Study System is fully updated to reflect the new 2019 ASWB exam. Our online study system includes access to:

  • An organized, step-by-step study plan that allows you to create a personalized, easy to follow schedule.  Many people 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.
  • Clinical examples that help you learn instead of memorize. 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 program brings content alive with real life examples like the ones you will see on the ASWB Clinical Level 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 strategies also focus 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).
  • Coaches available for questions and support who will always get back to you within two business days (but are often able to get back with you even sooner!).

Our LCSW Exam Prep/Clinical Exam Prep program takes 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!

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 very daunting.  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 Exam Prep can be challenging with so many options - books, workshops, apps and other on-line options.

Many social workers come to us after using other LCSW study guides and failing, finding themselves feeling defeated and hopeless. They report that 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

Studying for the LCSW was great because of how TDC set up there program. Although I probably made a new study calendar ever two weeks lol. I went through the program 4 times before I tested. I did not study the day before the test but I woke up early the day of and went over one of the final mocks rationales, most of the quick studies( did not go over the ones I was confident about), DSM recording and the theory recording at fast speed. I felt this helped me a lot. Driving to the test was very emotional but I told myself to get my head in the game and I got this. I can truly say I had no idea I passed until it showed on the screen and I was still in denial lol : ). Thanks TDC. Amanda your voice was in my head through out the test and Heidi thanks for clarifying questions when I asked and the other Facebooker's asked (It was very helpful).

TDC came highly recommended from my colleagues and I now know why! The study system organizes the large amount of information into manageable parts and even gives you a schedule to follow. It wasn't just information to memorize, it teaches you a way to think and attack the different types of questions that are the exam. This is your one stop shop for ASWB exam prep! I wasn't just ready for the test, I was confident walking into the test center and excited show off what I had learned. Thank you TDC, I couldn't have done it without you!

Thank you!

I love TDC program! Going into my exam, I felt very confident in the material. Prior to using TDC, I would pull random study material together and pray that I pass the exam. After failing 3x's I felt discouraged and frustrated feeling like I would never pass. Heidi and the members on the facebook group were so helpful and encouraging which kept me encouraged. Thank you so much for this program and Yes, I did "take" Amanda into the exam with me.

The Therapist Development Program's top 50 topics were spot on! I feel that listening to the audio portions of the program over and over again were vital to my passing the exam on my first try. Most of the questions on the exam require critical thinking. The program captured all of the topics in the exam and through repetition, taught me how to break the stem down in order to realize exactly what answer applied. I am so grateful to Amanda and her team. You guys rock!!

I passed the first time using the therapist development center. I appreciate the help in understanding the test and study materials. I passed with flying colors!!! I was supposed to earn a 103 score and I scored a 116. Rate this course as a 5!

With the help of TDC I passed my LCSW exam on my first attempt! TDC came highly recommended by a couple coworkers who used TDC program and also passed on their first attempts. Thank you to TDC for having such a detailed and organized program to tackle all the key materials/subjects covered by this exam that I think is otherwise overwhelming to study with this guidance. Recommending TDC to all my social work friends who are working on their LCSW.

The study guide accurately prepared me for the test!

TDC did a wonderful job with preparing me for reasoning based questions. Also, the helpful tips during the audios were great! I felt prepared and ready!

The program is structured and the audios make the material understandable for the first, next, best questions which is prevalent in this version of the exam. very little recall questions. I can not thank this program enough.

I used TDC to prep for the CA Law & Ethics Exam and my LCSW Clinical Exam. My experience has been nothing less than amazing. I love how structured the program is, as well as how much support is given during the program. An underrated asset of this program is the Facebook group. Hearing other people's experiences -- both of their struggles + their successes -- helped me to normalize my anxiety, and provide me with a lot of motivation and inspiration to PASS WITH CONFIDENCE. The TDC staff did an amazing job of really getting me to understand how to think about the exam, and I think that helped me ultimately pass on my first try. THANK YOU so much Amanda and the TDC staff. This program has allowed me to achieve my biggest professional goal and I am so blessed to have been recommended this program.

I will continue to use TDC as I find the material easy to process and TDC provides in simple terms rationale to the topics discussed. Hopefully 3 times is a charm!!!!!

I have talken this test 5 times using other programs but TDC made it much easier for me to study and learn the information to go and slay that beast !

This program provided me with a great structure to prepare for the ASWB at a time in my life when I was very busy and extremely nervous about being ill prepared for the exam. I had been out of graduate school for several years and was feeling overwhelmed by the idea of digging into the content and frankly not knowing where to begin. I really appreciated both the content and design of this program because I am the type of learner that likes there to be a combination of learning formats to keep me engaged. The quizzes and tests were really key for me as well! Thank you for putting your energies into creating a thoughtful preparation program. I am quite sure I would not have passed if it was not for my preparing with this program!

I am a mother of four and during my last pregnancy it was nearly impossible to study. I had planned to take the exam before my fourth daughter was born, but I just didn't have the energy or time. To make a long story short I wrote in three times to TDC to get my access extended. I listened to the lectures dozens of times and reviewed the material at my own pace (which was super slow). I had so many questions which the coaches answered right away (sometimes within hours of my messaging them) I took the exam and past it on my first try. All throughout the exam I felt confident I would pass. I'm so grateful for TDC and their team. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Passed the first time taking the exam. I bought a book previously but wasn't motivated to use it and just felt it was a textbook not a study material. During the exam, I heard one of the lecturers voice from 'The Development Center'. I would recommend this to everyone.

Thank you TDC for the thorough review materials that prepared me for my LCSW exam. I had so much hesitation taking the test having been out of school for many years, but all I can hear is Heidi's voice answering the questions. Thank you !

I passed on my first try. I needed 107 to pass and I received a score of 119. I scored a 81% and an *2% on the full mock exams. I new as soon as I sat down to the test that I was prepared. Thank you TDC for this thorough and effective training program.

I took the ASWB exam and passed first time, scoring somewhere in the 84-87% range depending if they calculate the throw away 20 questions. I have diabetes, am in my 50's, and have "focusing" issues. Here's what I learned and applied from this course:
I scored 49% on the first test coming in I progressively got better throughout the course. My Mock exams were in the high 80% and the 2 full mocks came in at 74% and 76% respectively. I took the final full mocks in 2 hours 10 minutes and felt like I was going slow.
Here's some pointers: .
1. go through the course more than once.
2. Take both full mocks.
3. Ask questions.
4. Learn from your mistakes.
5. Create a "rule sheet" if you can and study it. Eg : you FIRST refer to a physician if there are physical issues (not do a biopsychsocial).
6. REALLY LISTEN to the pep talk and strategies. The strategies work.
7. Get accommodations EARLY- I did not and had to whip through the exam so my blood sugar was OK, I brought in glucose tabs though. AND my test center (Pearson Vue) would NOT let anyone inside with coffee or anything to drink in the waiting room FYI. Get there early enough since there may be a lot of people.
8. Be friendly to the workers at the center, They are there to help you and it alleviates the tension.
9. Before the test time started: I divided my writing board into 7 sections of 10 each, and 1 section of 5, equaling 85. I underlined each section. After Q85 I wrote in big letters "TAKE A BREAK." I continued to section off the next half the same way. In each of the sections I wrote down numbers to the questions that I thought I MIGHT have incorrect and totaled them throughout. This made it far more doable. Instead of thinking of 170 questions, I thought, "OK, I just have 10 questions, then I'll stretch, or breathe deeply for a sec before going on. ) I did this 7 more times, took a break and then again for questions 86-170, and then finished in 2 hours. I calculated that by the most possible incorrect questions, I would have 26, which is totally passing. And that was close to what I got wrong. By the way, I was NOT allowed any food on my break, and I advocated loudly but it still didn't work. Just something to note.

This is an excellent course and I would highly recommend it. I have tiny critiques on it that I would personally like improved, but it's more my opinion than the content and structure of which it is formulated. Worth every penny!

The foundation that TDC provides is solid and helped greatly during the exam. I heard Amanda’s voice at times reminding where is this client, starts where client is at & also reminding me to read every word in question stem and answers. This strategy kept me focused and present.
To God be the Glory, Honor and Praise!!
