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

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 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 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

This program is the best program to exist. I used it to pass my LMSW, and now I just passed my LCSW on the first attempt! I cannot recommend it enough. Absolute gold. The lectures, quick studies, and quizzes were beyond helpful. They teach you how to truly take the exam. Passed with flying colors on each test after utilizing this program!! Amanda and team, you are absolutely amazing!!

The TDC program has a good blend of audio and reading material. I took Amanda's recommendation and completed the program twice. This program helped me pass the national ASWB Clinical Exam on the first attempt. I also used TDC to help me prepare for the California Law & Ethics exam, which I passed the first time. TDC was recommended to me by a classmate from graduate school. I have since recommended TDC to other social work colleagues. Great job to you Amanda and to the rest of your team!

After failing three times, I DID NOT GIVE UP!!! Still in shock that I passed. I recommend taking the test again after the 90-day waiting period. I waited a year in between each failed attempt and that did not help. TDC helped a lot in applying what I already knew. The test was also different in that you were able to highlight and strikethrough what was not relevant to the situation or what did stand out and was relevant. That helped me to focus on what I needed. Family support also makes a big difference; I had family and friends that encouraged me each time I failed and wanted to give up; they pushed me to try yet again and to persevere. I did not report my score sooner because I still cannot believe that I passed. Most importantly, 'we have not because we ask not'. James 4:2 I prayed and let God know what I wanted, and how I will be helping people with my license, and the difference I will work to make in people's lives. This is a great program, I listened over and over and over, in the car, while meal prepping, wherever I had the moment. I think it's great that you have an audio portion of your lessons. I would add more of the sections of the program as an audio option. Most importantly, it's great that you are with us until we pass; that was very needed.

I’m so thankful for TDC! I passed on my first try. I used primarily TDC for studying and scored 113 and needed 102 to pass! I felt extremely confident taking the exam and felt TDC’s prep aligned great with the actual material and questions set up of the exam!!

I studied through the material as it was set out. I passed.

This is an excellent program. I felt well prepared and went into the test feeling confident.

10/10 would recommend this program! I have test anxiety and the TDC gave me the confidence I needed to pass on my first try. The program gives all the information you need to take the exam and all the practice exams and quizzes were very helpful to get experience on what type of questions will be on the actual exam. Definitely worth the money!

If I had a Time Machine, I would go back and purchase TDC the first time I scheduled the LCSW exam. This curriculum is superior to any other. I felt so confident when I went in to take the exam and was elated when I got my results. Definitely worth every penny!!

I felt VERY prepared for the exam. I think TDC does a great job with covering areas on the exam and catering to all learning styles. Thank you so much !!

TDC helped me prepare completely for the exam and kept me up to date when things changed

This is a great well formatted program !!

I felt aimless just using a book style review for the test. I decided to invest in TDC, bought it a month and 2 weeks before my exam. I followed all the modules except did not take either of the full mock exams. During the test I really did feel confident through the information in the TDC program. I’d recommend to any of my friends who are prepping for their clinical exam

I passed my LCSW exam with only three weeks to study! TDC really helped me get organized, identify areas for improvement and areas I am strong/ comfortable in.

A lot can be said about TDC, but to put it simply TDC is the most effective, affordable and accessible program. The staff at TDC are with you until you pass the exam which is exceptional. It is rare to see a company that gives access to customers without deadline until they pass the exam. I have requested an extension several times and it was easy and simple. I memorize from what I hear than from what I read and listening the rationales from Amanda was very helpful. TDC is great and I hear a lot of SWRS including where I work passing the exam mainly because of TDC. You guys are great and especially Amanda your skills to solve question problems are exceptional. Keep it up the good work. Thanks

130 final score that's all the testimony needed!!

The two full-practice tests and rationales were very helpful. I also enjoyed the mix of audio and visual ways of studying, quizzes, and study outline.

I used TDC to prepare for my clinical exam, and took the test once and passed! I felt prepared and organized, which helped me confidently sit for my exam.

I am so thankful for this program and what it taught me. Learning how to think about the multiple choice questions and consider the stem when choosing the correct answer was so pivotal to my success. I felt calm and confident going into the exam and confident all the way through. Normally I am not a great test taker and have significant testing anxiety. I found the actual exam easier than the TDC mock exams, which was a wonderful feeling because I knew I had been well prepared. I am recommending this program to all of my friends! THANK YOU TDC!!

The program was incredibly easy to follow! I’m an auditory and hands-on learner so the lectures and quick studies/quizzes were very beneficial for me. I studied off and on for 90 days and then really buckled down in the last two weeks! Passed on the second try with TDC program!

Analyzing the question content was the most helpful technique I learned from the course. I took Amanda's voice with me into the testing room with me!
