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 was very impactful in the preparation for taking the exam. I struggle with test anxiety and confidence, this program helped me to overcome this struggle during the exam.

This exam has been weighing on my shoulders since I decided to become a social worker. I've never been good at tests and I feared having to take the LCSW. I took the exam two years ago and didn't pass it and avoided taking it after feeling so defeated. After hearing about TDC and the preparation it gave me I was ready to take the exam again. I am so grateful for this program and will be recommending it to everyone!

100000% you should buy this program! It is worth every single penny. I tried to wing it and take the LCSW exam four years ago without studying and failed. For four years I was embarrassed, continuously put studying off and the thought of the exam stressed me out. I have horrible test anxiety. This program is amazing. I followed every single step and recommendation and PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you TDC! I could not have passed without your program. I am forever grateful!!!

I really liked the audio files and wish all of the study material was audio for audio learners.

Amanda and Bethany were SO helpful! I listened to their audios all the time and the practice mock exams were very helpful! Thank you for helping me pass!!!!

Thank you TDC! Your answer rationales helped me "think like the test". I followed the course guide exactly as it was laid out and passed on my first try.

I absolutely love and appreciate this program. This program was made by social workers FOR social workers to succeed. One of the things that I've learned throughout this process is that with this exam, it's less about the content and more about HOW to take the exam. The people who've built this course understand that and assist. I followed a lot of their advice, even bringing fruit and juice with me to the testing facility. I took my break around question 100. I also had to remember that mindset has a lot to do with it. I'm used to being an "all A" student. Since this test is on a pass/fail scoring system, you can be content with getting a 70%, because you will still pass. I will absolutely recommend this course to any limited licensed social workers I know. It helped me feel confident in my own abilities to crush this exam. Thank you, TDC!

I am so grateful for the variety of learning styles covered in this guide. Listening was great for me, but having reading and writing to do as well was a great mix to help really reiterate the learning. I also really liked how it was not just about the wrote memory, but about how to study and how to really interpret the questions. I think there is a lot of practical application of how you trained us to study and really distinguish the delivery order or interventions.

I am so happy I chose TDC for my exam prep! I was nervous about how to incorporate studying into my already crazy routine, but the way TDC is structured helped me get organized sooo well from the start that it eased my anxiety over it. I also loved how well organized all the materials are and how condensed the information is presented, which makes it less overwhelming. If I had to point out one single thing I appreciated the most, it was the ability to build the endurance needed for test day. Having the half-mocks and 2 full mock exams made me get used to identify how to best preserve my energy on test day. I went into the exam thinking "I've done this before" and that helped me feel less anxious.

Thank you for all your help with providing me the skills to pass on the first try!

Thank you for your support. The third time is a charm, and I finally did it.

TDC’s study system was practical and a great fit for me! I felt confident and prepared to pass the LCSW exam.

TDC has helped me pass both the LMSW and LCSW exams. During the Mock Exams and quick studies, I discovered errors in my thinking. By using TDC, I could slow down, pay attention, and process what the test questions were asking. In addition to helping me pass the exam, TDC helped me become a better clinician. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be equipped for the exam and become a better social worker.

TDC really helped me to understand the exam to break down the question to fully gather what the question was asking.

The study program was GREAT it provided simple ways to review the information at a pace that was good for me. THANKS AGAIN

N/a at the moment.

I couldn’t of have done it without TDC! It made everything so easy to study and really focused on what was mostly covered in the exam. The practice tests and rationales were the best in understanding the material as well to see how we can improve our thinking strategies while testing!

I passed my LMSW in 2020 and my LCSW in 2022 on my first attempts using TDC. I did not use any other material -- I completed the program two times in 4 weeks both times and passed! Thank you!!

Thankful to have had the opportunity to work through the TDC program. The lecture series was so helpful during my exam prep AND on exam day; I know I worked hard to get this point in my career but I must say that being able to mentally reference Amanda and Bethany’s words of wisdom calmed my nerves and provided me with clarity of thought.

I am very grateful to God and The Therapist Development Center for helping me pass the exam on the first try. The resources provided were excellent!
