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

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2021 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 2021 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 to 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, and choosing the right social work ASWB Clinical exam guide can be confusing. 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 with other social work ASWB Clinical exam guides, 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 am so thankful for TDC! The team there goes above and beyond to help you feel prepared for the exam! I loved everything about this program! I would definitely recommend it!!

This system was so helpful in that I didn't waste tons of time studying things that weren't on the exam. The system walked me through the reasoning process of the questions and when I had questions they responded in the time they said they would. I've already recommended this to program to colleagues.

I needed a 102 out of 170 to pass. I got a 104!!

I had no idea where to start when studying for this exam. I have continuous worked in one area of social work since entering the field, so while I was very comfortable with that area, there were a lot of other topics I haven't engaged with much since grad school. This program helped me get organized, recognize which areas I needed to focus on, and create a plan. I am so thankful I was told about you guys!

I had previously used other materials in the past and failed my first attempt. After I looked and asked around for program recommendation and fingers pointed me in the right direction, TDC. I studied for a month which gave me the opportunity to review material twice and I took my test using all of the tips and PASSED!

The study materials were helpful. All the quizzes and mock tests along with the answer reasoning was very helpful.

I lost count on how many times I have taken the test. It’s been 20 years since I graduated with my masters degree and I finally passed the exam! I had used countless study prep courses and materials, but therapist development center was the study guide that worked for me. The audio was excellent and the study guide and quizzes were great, exactly what I saw on the actual exam. I was hesitant about spending the money but was a great investment. Thank you TDC!

The structure and organization of this program was exactly what I needed to prepare for the exam. I passed the clinical exam on my first attempt!”

This program is a total game changer. I have taking the LCSW now 3 times and finally passed today! The first time I was 9 months pregnant (I actually had my daughter 3 days later) and it was pre-pandemic. I realized then I needed to have proper study material. The material I was using was overwhelming and it wasn't organized. The second time I took it I failed it by 9 points. I used the program but, didn't use my time wisely. I was a first time mother and not really able to make much time to study. I reached out to the TDC coach and received a response the next day from Heidi. She gave me several tips and a great deal of encouragement. I re-applied immediately because I didn't want to forget anything. I followed the program and doubled down on the ethics, how to think, DSM, and quick studies. I also read the tips I received from Heidi a few times. I recommend taking breaks like Amanda said during the test. I took her with me in the test. I also heard Bethany when I reached ethics questions. I am so so so thankful for this program! Don't think twice-it was worth the investment.

I reviewed many comments on a Facebook support group; all using different study materials and some multiple materials. One thing I learned was that using one is less confusing. I saw a few using TDC and when I compared it to other study prep material, I thought this would be the best for me. I think I would have wasted my time using other materials because some that I reviewed had many definitions and information that was cumbersome and exhausting to even think about. It took me seven years to get the courage up to take the exam and didn't feel I had any more time to waste with clouding my mind.

I passed my exam on the first try and I feel overall I was very prepared but still nervous. I am not a great test taker and I had a lot of anxiety before the exam. I pushed my exam back numerous times until finally, I had waited too late to reschedule within the 24 hour period and had to take it. The program is focused and a great way to prepare for various topics and questions related to the field. The program also helped me to think about the questions and the answers in a way that helped me to confidently make reasonable guesses and ultimately pass with flying colors!

I am 51 years old. I got my bachelors in 1992 and my Masters in 1993. I have been an LMSW since. But after two years of supervision, plus a COVID year and I was just as far behind as when I started. Your program helped me to catch back up to my supervision guidance and so much more! I never would have passed, none the less the first time, without your program. Your program was amazing and got me through. Thank you. Joelle

Praise GOD I finally passed on October 2nd 2021!!! Thank you TDC I could not have done it without your program!!!

TDC is an excellent course; it is thorough, has clarity, and covers the necessary topics for the test. I literally listened over and over again to the recordings of Amanda, not only in my study time but whenever I had a spare "moment." TDS stayed with me until I passed the test! I would definitely recommend TDC to anyone who needs assistance and/or study material for the LICSW test! Thank you

This program is the most thorough and comprehensive program I have come across! I passed my LCSW exam today and am beyond thrilled!! I have recommended the program to colleagues. Thank you again for everything and helping me reach my goal!!!!

I loved this process, it flowed well. Really enjoyed the lectures, I listed to them over and over, when I was driving cleaning, etc. Passed the exam on my first try. Definitely recommend!

TDC did an excellent job at preparing me to take the LCSW exam, on the first try. The course helped me study at a good pace. I valued the many different types of study tools for many kinds of learners, including lectures, quick studies, quizzes, and practice exams. By the time I took the two full mock exams, I felt very prepared. I really liked being able to go back and listen to the lectures again to make sure they were fresh in my mind before the exam. I also found my coach Heidi to be readily available to answer any question that came to mind and was so helpful in my learning process. The final lecture helped me to feel confident and reminded me of the strategies I learned to take with me on the exam. I have already recommended TDC to my social work colleagues. Thanks so much to TDC!!

I am so grateful for TDC! I have been out of school for several years and this course prepared me to take the clinical exam and pass on the first try. I felt very prepared going into the exam and was so happy with my results!

This was absolutely the best program the use to study! I used one prior to this that was just a book, in which I was told read this book front to back and then if he will be prepared to take the test. That was not the case, and I did not pass the first time around. This program is filled with guides, quick studies, lectures, and ways to look at the question and really break it down so that you feel confident answering each question. I highly highly recommend this program, I’ve already recommended several of my friends! This program made me feel confident walking into the test and I truly felt prepared for the exam.

Thank you TDC for providing me a easy step-by-step program that helped me narrow down and focus on the most important information in preparation for my licensure exam!
