LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2020 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 2020 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 with 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. 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 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

Yes: Not sure why, put off the test for so long, but today I took the test and passed first try. I'm over sixty and we are currently amidst a pandemic! The stress level was high but the results were perfect! Thank you for the study material and program. I heard Amanda's voice throughout the test, your support is gratefully appreciated!

I am thrilled to have passed. This course made all the difference. I went in feeling prepared, used the strategies I learned from it, and am grateful that you exist! I sent one of my co-workers directly to you, I didn't want her to get burned as I did by a really bad prep program her first time.

Thank you TDC for thoroughly preparing me for the Clinical ASWB Exam! I have been a Medical Social Worker in an Acute Care Hospital for 24 years. Being licensed was never a requirement for my position and my priority was raising my family. Three years ago, it became a personal goal to get licensed and today THAT happened! The key strategies Amanda laid out for us (reading each question word for word, imagining the client in my office, taking on a supervisory role and of course imagining Amanda right there with me) truly helped to ground me and guide me in sorting out what comes "first", "next" or "best". The program further gave me the confidence to approach each question keeping in mind the ethical values that guide my clinical decision making such as client self-determination/autonomy, ensuring safety and establishing a therapeutic relationship. I would highly recommend following the study plan outlined by TDC!

I passed my LCSW on the first try! The exam felt like I was taking a test with TDC. I scored an 80% and a 76% on my final Mock exams. I needed 102 correct answers and got 112 correct answers. I only used TDC to study and did not use any other study materials.

Thanks so much to TDC, I passed on my first attempt. I felt super confident going in and finished the exam 45 minutes early. Super grateful for this program, it's worth every dime!

Thank you TDC!! The program helped me develop a schedule that was easy to manage. Prior to TDC I was overwhelmed by all the study information out there. Once I signed up and saw what the program was like, my anxiety decreased significantly. I felt prepared going into the test and always referred back to the lectures with Amanda when I was second guessing myself. Thank you again, I couldn't have done it without TDC!!!

I have much anxiety with taking test and the LMSW exam was a horrible experience for me. I lost my hospital job due to not having my license in time, then got into a horrible accident on the way to a tutor due to my stress and anxiety level regarding the exam. I then gave up for a year because I found a job that did not require it and it was causing to much stress and money for me to continue to retake it. For that exam I used other study guides and programs and never fully had confidence. From the first week of studying with the Therapist Development center I felt confident to take the exam. The program was also very helpful in my current job and I was able to utilize what I learned with my clients today. Due to COVID my exam was rescheduled a few times but I was finally able to take it on 7/17/20 with a mask for the full exam and I passed on the first time!!!!

Thank you, TDC! After taking the LCSW exam once before and failing by two points, I decided to try your program. I absolutely loved the audio lectures and quick studies, and found the practice exams with answer explanations extremely helpful. I took the LCSW exam yesterday for a second time and I'm so excited to share that I passed! Thank you, again, so much! I will definitely be recommending your program to everyone I know.

I have a history of test anxiety and using this program helped me feel significantly more confident when sitting for the exam. I was able to imagine the quick study guides and audio recordings with Amanda when I was answering questions, which was super helpful. I took this exam 2x prior where I missed passing by 3-4 points and felt really upset and jaded about the LCSW process. This study guide process made me feel capable and reminded me of my abilities as a social worker. I feel really grateful for this study guide in helping rebuild my confidence in taking this exam. Thank you -- I can happily say now that I am an LCSW!

I cannot express how helpful this program was and would highly recommend this curriculum to any social worker preparing for the ASWB exam. The exam itself seems so daunting that it can be difficult to know where to start let alone how to tackle the material. The most beneficial aspect for me was teaching me how to critically think and assisting me in examining each question stem with the mindset of what knowledge or ethical value the exam was testing me on. After completing the program twice and analyzing my mock exams, I approached the true exam with confidence that I would be able to work through a majority of the test questions and select the correct response. I passed the exam on my first attempt with ample points above the threshold. My score was reflective of what my scores were on the mock exams (mid to high 80s). If any social worker is weighing whether the cost of the program is worth it, my answer would be it absolutely is! Thanks, TDC, for getting me through this career hurdle!

I am so thankful for TDC and its support team. TDC was fundamental in prepping me to take this exam. The TDC help desk was great, they always got back to me quickly when reaching out to them.
I used TDC for both my LAW & ETHICS and LCSW exams. I very highly recommend this program!

Needed a 102, got a 115 on the first try. I feel like the practice exams were such a big help in being prepared. Thanks!!!

Thank you to the Therapist Development Center for helping me prepare for my licensing exam. I passed the first time that I took it which was a huge relief. Listening to the final encouraging lecture right before the exam was also extremely helpful.
I would recommend this program to anyone studying for their licensing exam as if truly prepares you for the types of questions that you will be asked.

The program works great if you are diligent and follow the setup. I felt very prepared for the exam, but still did better than I was expecting. Thank you for all your help.

I am glad I used this program to prepare for the exam. I feel it fully prepared me for the exam.

Thank you so much. It is so difficult to narrrow down what is all needed to study for this test. It was amazing to have it all planned out what is needed to pass. It is such a weight lifted off of me to have this test done. Thank you!

It was amazing how I felt after I completed the exam. Seeing the four letters long-time waiting "PASS" is priceless. It took a lot of work, time and dedication, but with the help of this program and the excellent audios and material, I was able to PASS!
Thanks for being there until I pass!!

This is an amazing program. Before finding the TDC, I looked at various LCSW exam study material, which was confusing, difficult to connect with questions and so much more. When I first started learning from the TDC, I felt an immediate relief (something just felt right) and I passed. Although the test was difficult, I leaned alot on what I learned from the TDC to pass the LCSW exam on my first attempt.

Thank you TDC for all your help. I took the exam for the second time and felt extremely prepared. When I failed the first time by 5 points you were supportive and willing to talk through things. When I was ready 3 years later to take the exam you were accommodating to the reasons why it took me so long to reschedule, even more understanding when my exam was postponed due to COVID 19, and helpful even when I panicked the night before, willing to talk through certain topics. Your prompt responses as well as organized program were far superior to other programs I considered. Thank you for helping me advance my social work career, forever grateful!

The first time I took the LCSW exam, my twins were young, and they both got very sick the night before the exam. Unfortunately, I went into the exam feeling sick as well and failed the exam. I was devastated. A friend shared how she used TDC to help her study; TDC (and big shout out to Amanda & Bethany) helped keep me focused, confident, and the Mock Exams & Quick Studies helped me with my test anxiety! Due to COVID my test had to be rescheduled in March until today, and TDC graciously extended my study program. Today, I walked out smiling, so happy and shaking with excitement with my BIG PASS in hand !!!! THANKS TDC!!!!!
