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! 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 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

I felt very prepared- I feel like the real exams was easier than the practice exams.

TDC is the best investment one can make to study, prepare for, take, and pass the exam. I utilized the audios, handouts, and mock exams for the LCSW exam and found them exceptionally helpful. I am an extremely anxious text taker and found audio learning to be a grounding experience. I was so appreciative of the test taking strategy skills and Amanda's encouraging voice as she suggested to take her with you into the exam room. I kept hearing her voice as I was reading the answers to questions asking was what the first and what is the next thing that needs to be done. I stayed on task, stayed focused, and was able to minimize my anxiety throughout the four hours. I finally passed the LCSW (May 16th) and cannot tell you how happy and pleased I am that I utilized TDC. The program is worth the investment. The suggestions and guidance are right on point. TDC made the difference. The sense of accomplishment after dedicating the time to practice and learn is amazing. Thank you for creating such an incredible program. I cannot recommend the Therapist Development Center enough!!. It was exactly what I needed to finally pass!!

I was very pleased with this program. I had been out of school for 15 years working as a case manager and am now looking to become certified in clinical work. Being a full-time employee, mother of 2 and homeschooling a elementary school child during COVID-19, needless to say I did not have much to give. This program gave everything I needed to a timely and efficient way to conquer the test. It was so much application and the prep material taught me how to think. I was nervous being out of school for so but the program gave me education with confidence. Thank you

Thanks so much for offering this brilliant resource! The most significant way it helped me pass, is that I learned how to break down the questions, looking for the most important details and also knowing exactly what they were asking for. The exam questions felt more difficult and abstract than those on the mock exams and yet having learned most of the key information and having learned how to assess the questions, I passed! One suggestion is regarding providing an alternative schedule for those of us who work long days and can really only study on the weekends. Maybe it could be framed as a 10 or 12 week option. I had to modify and ended up studying over several extra weeks (COVID 19 cancellation previously) which really helped me. I have already recommended your study program to several others. Thanks so much! Excellent program!!

Taking the exam wearing a mask the whole time and no water/snacks allowed on breaks was extra challenging. Still passed with 85%. Thanks for the awesome prep and the ease of extending my course access due to COVID causing my original exam date to be cancelled.

I had studied with two other preps but did not feel ready to test. I found this prep online and after going through it the first time, I felt more prepared. I did go through it three times.

The information here was great. I made the mistake of registering for my exam quickly and only had 2 weeks to study. I took all the tests, listened to all the audio and I passed. The most helpful parts was listening to/reading the justifications for the answers. TDC saved me I would not have passed without this.

Thank you TDC for helping me prepare for this milestone moment! I could not have done it without you! I found the mock exams and audio lectures to be most helpful! Highly recommend TDC!
Thank you!!!

I have bought so many different study material and taken classes, but this program was the one that helped me pass. Thank you soo much

Taking and passing the ASWB exam on 5/14/2020 after it was rescheduled last month due to COVID-19 precautions definitely left me feeling a sense of fulfillment and relief. Thank you TDC for your continued support and providing me assurance by giving me an extension on my test prep material in case my test was cancelled again! The study material along with the helpful suggestions and tips to take prior to the exam allowed me to enter the testing center feeling confident and keep my focus on the content of every question! I am so happy to be done with this journey and would recommend TDC to every colleague so they can share this amazing experience! Best of luck to all other TDC users!

TDC prepared me well for the exam, I went in worried, and quickly realized how well prepared I was for the exam. Thank you TDC!

This program was extremely helpful, the materials were very accurate from the lectures to the quizzes and mock exams. It helped me pass my clinical exam on the first attempt.

Thank you so much TDC! I passed today at 35 weeks pregnant and I know I wouldn't have passed without TDC. The program made it really easy to study around a timeline and digest the material in a comprehensive way. The things that helped me the most were the mock exams and learning how to answer the questions for what the test was looking for. I utilized the coaching feature twice and that was also very helpful as I was able to gain a deeper understanding of rationales with content I was stuck on. I can't recommend this program enough!

TDC provided me test taking strategies that prepared me to take the exam and what topics to focus on! I would recommend TDC and had wished I started with TDC when I attempted the first time.

OMG.... Amanda , her staff, and the study system are PHENOMENAL. Today, I took my LCSW for the 3rd time and I PASSED! I remembered what was discussed in the PEP talk. I was confident and sure of myself. I felt prepared as I sat before the exam. The 2 FULL MOCK EXAMS sooooooooo prepared me for the exam! Thank you Therapist Development Center for such an amazing program! I will recommend it to anyone I know is preparing to take their LCSW exam!!!!!

Thank you so much for helping me pass my LCSW exam. I struggled on the first attempt due to some test anxiety and not feeling like I gave it my all. You not only solidified the information I already knew, but you helped me narrow down the studying and gave me the confidence to rock the exam with far less anxiety. During the exam, I kept thinking back to your voice teaching each of the topics and working through the questions. Your knowledge and expertise were definitely appreciated. Thank you for helping me continue on my path of pursuing my dreams and helping others!

TDC was worth the money. I used it to review material, understand the exam and practice test taking to reduce test anxiety. I felt confident and prepared entering my exam and passed on the first try. The practice tests were essential in preparedness for the real exam.

TDC really helped me, this was my second time taking my exam and I was a nervous wreck. After completing the program, I not only passed my exam, I am now one step closer to becoming a fully licensed LCSW. I would recommend this program to anyone who is needing study materials to pass their exam! Best advice is to complete the program through twice if you are able. Thank you Amanda and the rest of the TDC coaches. You are all big life savers. I am one happy client and therapist. :)

This program is a great tool for LCSW prep! It is comprehensive and designed for success! I was so happy to find this resource and I was very well prepared! Thank you!

I want to say thank you to the Therapist Development Center! I had previously taken the clinical social work exam before and failed using other study materials. This course really helped me understand the questions and helped me feel more prepared that I could have ever imagined. It was such a relief seeing my progress through the course, and I appreciate how DETAILED the lessons are. Most of everything that was covered in the study materials was on my test. I found that this exam was a bit more challenging than my first, and I strongly felt that I was able to work through my fear and anxiety because I heard Amanda's voice in my head. I would highly recommend this program to anyone!
