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 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 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 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 Exam Prep program 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!

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 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 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

This exam was, hands down, one of the most challenging obstacles I came upon in my career. Your study materials gave me plenty of exposure to many various topics addressed by the exam. This was my second time taking the clinical exam, and I passed. So grateful for your program. Happy New Year indeed.

So grateful for TDC, I passed my lcsw exam on the first try!!!

TDC was an excellent study program that helped prepare me for my Clinical Social Work Exam. The way it was organized complimented my learning style. The program offered varies study methods. The lectures, practice tests/quizzes, and quick studies were incredibly helpful. During my exam, I was able to effectively use the reasoning skills shared by Amanda and Bethany to break down each question stem. Although I struggle with "timed" test anxiety, I felt completely confident and prepared for the real exam. I passed on the second attempt. Thank you so much! I highly recommend TDC!!!

TDC does a great job of helping you understand the logic behind the test and how to reason through the questions to get to the best answer. This test is not just a recall type test, you really have to know how to think the through the questions to arrive at the correct answer, and TDC shows you how. I could not have passed this test without this program. Moreover, when I needed an extension they provided it to me right away so I was able to study right up to the day of the test.

I was very hesitant about taking the exam but feel that TDC adequately prepared me. The questions that I experienced via the mock exams were very helpful in preparing me for the style of questions on the LCSW exam. In addition to preparing for the exam, the study guides and detailed information provided a great refresher for me in different areas of social work that I can take an apply to my day to day career. I have already recommended to several friends that are excited to purchase. Thanks TDC.

I passed the ASWB Clinical exam (LCSW) yesterday!! I'm so happy I decided to use this program, as I had taken the exam previously and failed. Basically, I had lost confidence in myself and was second guessing my answers. Then I found the TDC program! After completing the whole program, scoring well on each full mock exam....I reached out to a coach for some last minute assistance and then decided to go for it! I listened to the pep talk multiple times, was sure to try all suggestions given such as; exercising the day before, eating a piece of fruit (banana), and even though I was terrified of running out of time....I took a break at the halfway mark! OH and don't forget to ask your test site if you can have the unwrapped cough drops on a kleenex/napkin! All of that led me to passing! Woo!! I feel such a huge amount of relief! TDC was just what I needed to raise my confidence and learn how to answer those first/next, most/best, primary, etc., questions! I can truly say NOT using any of the acronyms to put the answers in order was the "key" for me! Personally, using those made choosing an answer much worse and seemed to take more of my time.
So a big...THANK YOU to TDC!!! I'm so excited!!

The structure and simplicity of TDC is invaluable. I loved the fact that there were components for every learning style. It was truly excellent!

TDC was instrumental in helping me to prepare and pass the exam on my first try! As I took the exam, techniques taught about how to take the test flashed through my mind and helped ease any text anxiety. Thank you, TDC!!

I have been using TDC for the last two months. I followed the program exactly as stated and although I am anxious by nature, I felt strangely confident going in. I needed 103 to pass and got 121 correct! Thank you so much for this program, it was worth every cent!

There are so few recall questions on the test that studying for it must have a huge emphasis on how to take the test and TDC provides just that.

I thank God first and foremost, then I thank TDC! This program is AMAZING.

I think is a great program the way has been consolidate. To pass the examination, the person really need to practice all the test and study all the content material.

Let me start by saying......Thank you guys soooooo much! I tested on 12/21/2019 and I literally cried when I saw “PASS”! I felt sooo weird because I was so confident in answering the questions. I got anxious SEVERAL times throughout the 4 hours and reduced my anxiety by playing back everything from the pep talk and also reassuring my self that I knew the material. I could not have been so confident without TDC’s study system. It is so well structured and once you go through this program the information just sticks!!

It helped me so much, I literally heard the voice of the instructor in my head as I took the test. It was a wonderful study tool. I passed on my first attempt! What a confidence boost! Thanks TDC!

I've spent a bit a time thinking of what I wanted to share about my experience with TDC. Simply put...everyone preparing for the exam MUST use this program!! I know it may be tough to pay for a course and for the exam itself, but this was by far worth every penny! The entire program was easy to follow, detailed, and an accurate representation of the actual exam. I got approximately 80% of the questions correct on the exam, which I was very pleased with! Considering the first time I took the exam I scored much lower (I used other study tools during my first attempt). I also noticed a HUGE decrease in my test anxiety during my second attempt and I truly believe it was due to feeling prepared! I took my time and followed all of the tips Amanda taught me! This course is a game changer! Please feel free to comment if anyone has questions! Good luck to everyone!!

I have major standardized text anxiety and was extremely nervous about the LCSW. However, a dear friend and colleague (Hannah Robinson, LCSW) recommended TDC and I couldn’t be more grateful. TDC breaks down subject matter into manageable areas of study and most importantly focuses on various test taking strategies which proved much more beneficial than trying to memorize content. After completing TDC’s program, I felt prepared and passed today with flying colors!! I highly recommend this program!!

I have been out of graduate school for almost a decade and spent my career in Child Protective Services. Due to my high-demanding career of choice at the time, no one could pay me enough money to go through this prep course to take the LCSW exam. I purchased this program in 2015 or 2016 and never used it. I finally left Child Protective Services four months ago (August 2019) and contacted TDC to see if I could use the program to study. TDC did not hesitant and re-set my access to this program. I gave myself exactly three months to study and can say that I passed (December 19, 2019)! Believe in TDC and yourself; do not cheat yourself when studying. Listen to the "How to Think" and "Let's Talk Ethics" audio recordings multiple times. Take the quizzes and review them at least three times or until you score 90% or higher on them. Thank you TDC!!!

I passed the first time. I studied the program 3 tines, and reviewed the quick studies just before taking the test. Thank you TDC, the system was challenging, but very well structured.

Thank you TDC! Your program helped me learn how to properly answer the questions. The coaches were incredibly helpful and patient in explaining items I did not understand. I am forever grateful for the program. every penny was well spent.

TDC was a great test prep that also improved my skills and knowledge for my present job as a clinician. Heidi, the coach, is very patient and an excellent mentor who helped answer my questions, promptly. I really enjoyed listening to Amanda's lectures and rationales.

The best benefit that I felt TDC provided was that they kept their promise to stay with me until I passed and never charged me for renewal when I failed twice before passing. Thanks again for being a part of my journey to becoming a LCSW. Best wishes! Kim
