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

I FINALLY passed the LCSW exam on my fourth try using TDC! I wish I had purchased this 2 years ago when I took my exam the first time. I have already told several of my friends about this program so they can use it when prepping for their exam. I highly recommend this program to anyone trying to navigate on how to study.

I previously failed the LCSW exam and was so nervous to take it again. As I was sitting taking the tests I couldn’t believe how similar and helpful all the questions on this test prep were in comparison to the actual test.

With TDC I felt like I knew what I needed to study and how to study. The way that TDC taught me to think about the questions really helped me to logically think through the scenarios on the test and either put them in order or help me to pick what really was the BEST answer. Thank you TDC, I know I would not of passed without you!

When I became stuck on a question on the exam, I broke it down, write it out and role played the scenario in my head. I actually used Heidis voice in my head when breaking down the question and going through the rationales on some of the ones that I was really stumped on. I would ask myself” How would The coaches break it down”. It really helped!

Wow! I finally passed!
This was my second attempt. The first time I used a different program that was packed with way too information. It did not help me work through the first/next and best/most questions like TDC did. I truly enjoyed the combination of audio, quick studies, quizzes and mock tests. It was very helpful to be able to listen multiple times to ensure I received all of the information. I ran through the program twice as I purchased before I knew when I could schedule my exam but I think it helped me (everyone is different). Lastly, the access to a coach was also extremely helpful when it came to processing questions, checking for clarification on progress, etc. I am extremely happy and grateful for this program! Thank you for everything! Woohoo!

TDC took the difficulty out of studying. I followed the course to the letter and practiced the techniques on mock tests. I have test taking anxiety and failed the exam once . I listened to all the lectures the week of the test. The ethics lecture was invaluable. I was able to pass the test and would highly recommend this program.

Thanks to TDC, I passed on the first try. I had a lot of test anxiety and tend to second guess myself, so over preparing is crucial for me to moderate anxiety. The many practice tests and auditory files helped. I also used all the You tube files uploaded from TDC, I wish you had more of those because I like power point presentations too. It’s a good program, glad I chose TDC and will recommend.

When I saw PASS on my screen today, I literally cried tears of joy! I have horrible test anxiety. Prayer and TDC's structure helped me pass this exam. Amanda's lectures helped me so much, as well as the quick studies and quizzes as well as the mock exams and rationales. Heidi was the best!! I can't thank her enough for taking the time to answer all my questions and concerns. TDC is worth it!! I highly recommend!

This was such a great tool. I am so pleased with program and passed today. The practice tests really helped me prepare. Thank you!

This was the best program. Anytime I had a question they would answer it within 25 hours.

This was the third time taking this exam. Thank you Amanda Rowen - I kept you in my head through the whole test! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you again.!! Please stay safe.

You really did stay with me until I passed! Thank you!

Love this study system and recommend it for all my social worker, mft, lpcc friends. The questions on the mock exams were actually more difficult than the test so I felt very confident! I've passed my law and ethics and clinical exam with you all, thanks so much.

TDC program is well worth the investment. I looked at one day seminars for the same fee. These could not compare to the exceptional program from TDC. The program lectures, handouts, quick studies, mock exams and support from my coach totally prepared me to take and pass the exam on the first try. I highly recommend this program! THANK YOU TDC!! Mary Ann K.

I just PASS the LCSW exam. Between finishing graduate school 10 years ago; English being my second language and and two previous failures on the exam (97 points and 100 points)... TDC gave me the confidence and the strategies that I needed to tackle the exam... I found the program 3 weeks before the test and I worked hard to complete all the activities that the program provided me to practice. I am very grateful with the program... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

I graduated with my MSW in 1999 and was very worried about the exam since I'm a little bit older and have been out of school a while. I had no idea where to start and TDC helped in my organization and I felt prepared to take the exam. I passed on my first attempt!

Passed my National Exam today! The directions/advice/support you get from TDC is amazing! if you are like me, I was struggling to keep up with all the material and commit to the study guidelines because of life and life's terms, pandemic, fires in CA etc. TDC kept me on track at every turn I had to deal with in life to make sure I would focus on what I needed. This material gives you the meat of what you need to know going into the exam! Good luck!

Took my exam for the first time today, I needed 103 to pass and scored 125. TDC was an incredible resource for me. I ordered it almost 3 years ago, and never ended up taking my exam. They allowed me to extend the product multiple times as I hadn't scheduled the exam yet and hadn't really dedicated time to studying their program. I finally got serious and scheduled my exam about 1.5 months ago. I went through the entire program once within that time and then revisited a couple lectures again. I felt prepared and confident from the mock exam scores, and I ended up passing the exam on the first try! I think this program is best for audio learners. I chose to listen to the lectures while playing a game on my phone, because I am able to listen better when I have something to occupy my hands. I found the lectures interesting and engaging and liked the ability to email their coaches when I needed clarification.

I am incredibly thankful for the program. I felt really well prepared for the exam and scored a 127! The mock exams were really accurate and close to the exam questions on the ASWB Clinical Exam. What was a real help was the 8 minute pep talk. I found those encouragements and suggestions for testing incredibly valuable, especially the part about taking a break and drinking juice at question 85. That really helped my mental state! I would highly recommend this study program. If you follow the steps you will get great results!

As a chronically anxious test taker, I went into this experience assuming that I would have to take the test twice. In the past, no matter how much I knew the material, I would never be able to perform well on test day. TDC changed this for me. I am both an auditory and a visual learner and TDC was perfect for reinforcing information in both domains. It gave me a structured study guide so that I felt comfortable allocating several hours a week to studying, but then didn't feel burdened by the thought that "I should be studying" at every other moment. Although I did have some anxiety on the day of my test, it was much more manageable than it would have been if I hadn't committed to TDC. It was very much a worthy investment and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for different ways to study.
