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

Our 2018 LCSW Exam Study System prepares social workers to pass the CLINICAL Level Exam administered by the ASWB. Our 2018 LCSW Exam Study System is fully updated to reflect the new 2018 ASWB exam. Our online study system includes access to:

  • An organized, step-by-step study plan that allows you to create a personalized, easy to follow schedule.  Many people 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.
  • 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 program brings content alive with real life examples like the ones you will see on the ASWB Clinical Level 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 strategies also focus 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).
  • Coaches available 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!).

Our LCSW Exam Prep/Clinical Exam Prep program takes 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 immediately. Nothing is shipped - it is all on-line. 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 very 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 and hopeless. 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 had the pleasure of working with Heidi for private tutoring to support the study program. She was a gem -- warm, caring, highly informed, and a great educator. With her support, I was better able to manage my anxiety, and obtain a sufficient grasp of the material and test strategies to pass with a comfortable margin.

Amazing program! Thoughtfully organized, thorough (but ot overkill). Having the "ask a coach" feature, and the support that provided was extremely useful. The mock exams, rationales, audio, and quick studies all contributed to my success. The audios were extra helpful when in the car, or while doing housework.

To say I was nervous to retake the test after not passing it about 15 years would be an understatement. Like many others, taking tests are not my strength. I took one local prep course that included the Dawn Apgar book and accompanying app. Although these are great resources and provide the appropriate material, I left the class feeling, "what do I do now??" In the absence of any structure from the course, I went back into panic mode. My colleague had recommended TDC and suggested I do this instead. I could not have been happier with my decision. The content, audio, rationales for answers, actual test prep, and (MOST IMPORTANTLY) the structure to get to the test was well beyond my expectations. Although still nervous walking into the testing center, I had felt far more prepared and ready than ever. I needed 99 correct and answered 112 correctly. Thank you TDC for getting me here!

I passed the exam after completing this program. I am very grateful I came across your program!

TDC throughly prepared me to take my exam on the first try. Having a structured program with coaches who are there for you when you have questions really put my mind at ease. Heidi was there to answer my questions when I was struggling with a specific topic. I would highly recommend the program to anyone needing a program that will help you pass on the first try.

TDC was a godsend for me! I really struggled with setting up my own study plan using an exam prep book. The prep book had a lot of good information, but reading through a textbook was not a good option for me! TDC really gave me the structured study program I needed to be successful on this exam. I am a firm believer in finding what works for you and things not always being one size fits all. This program was definitely what worked for me! I still struggled with pretty intense anxiety leading up to the exam and on test day, but that's pretty common for me. Despite that, I was able to pass with flying colors! 136/150! My biggest struggle was the timing of the exam--I consistently struggled with my timing on every full length exam I took, both through TDC and elsewhere, and on the official exam. Finally accepting that timing was not going to be a strength for me really helped to alleviate some of the extra anxiety there. I finished the official exam with 27 seconds left to spare, and still managed to pass with a high score! I cannot thank TDC enough for helping me along my road to licensure!

I am so glad I finally used the TDC study program. After a few years of hesitating to sign up and take the LCSW exam, I passed on the first attempt last week!! I know I could not have done it without the help of your study system. I cannot thank you enough for helping me reach one of my personal and career goals!!!

I had been putting off my licensure exam for months because it felt so overwhelming without direction on what to study. Then a quick internet search introduced me to TDC and I could not be more thankful for their program. At first I was hesitant to invest in it, but now that I've gone through it and passed my exam on the first try, I'd do it again in a heartbeat! The structured study plan and different ways information is presented really helped me feel confident about what I had learned going into the test. I'm so appreciative of this program and would highly recommend it! Thanks TDC!

THANK YOU TDC!!! I passed the clinical exam on Friday, and am so proud to be able to call myself an LCSW. This was the only study material that I used, in addition to an ASWB practice exam that I purchased. Not gonna lie- I thought that I was gonna have a panic attack at the beginning of the exam just because the first few questions were out of left field, but I heard your voice Amanda and quickly got control of myself! I will tell anyone to use your program!! Thank you so much Amanda and Heidi!

I had a hard time retaining information and studied for weeks. I found the program to be extremely beneficial.

I have PASSED!!!! I have previously taken the exam 2 other times and would fail by 2-3 questions. It was heartbreaking. I never could figure out what exactly I needed to study or how to organize my study material; it felt like everyone was telling me something different. With TDC, they helped me greatly with overcoming my anxiety and had already organized/focused the material. They provided both written and auditory material and rationalizations as well as several much needed practice quizzes and mock exams. I feel lucky that I was able to find such a great program! I really enjoyed the layout and understanding of this program and I am feeling sad that I have to give it up. Thank you TDC!

Therapist development center really made me feel like I had a plan, and could structure my study. I passed on the first try, and felt totally prepared. Thank you TDC!

Passed my LCSW exam first try!!! TDC is heavensent! Thank you Amanda and all of the other TDC angels. Couldn’t have done it without you! I went it knowing that I was going to passed. There is no other program that can better prepare you. Thank you a MILLION times!!!


I am so grateful to TDC for creating such an excellent program that truly covers everything that is on the LCSW exam. I love the Facebook community too! What an amazing group of people that connect on a common goal in passing their exams and truly encouraging one another! I am so happy that I trusted the process and put in the work. I passed the CA LCSW on my first try! Thank you!

This study program was an amazing tool that helped me strategize and focus. Lesson learned, you MUST go through the entire program. This second time of round, I did just that and I confidently took the test, well prepared and passed!

I am thankful for these materials. It gave me direction, planning, content and encouragement along the way. I found using all components of the curriculum to be useful. Yesterday, 10/31/18 as I entered the testing room, I envisioned Amanda sitting there waiting for me. I talked through the questions and focused on, FIRST, BEST, SHOULD, NEXT. This was particularly helpful. I read the questions "out loud" and tried to be present in that specific question environment. I also called ASWB today to lobby for them changing the rules regarding eating a snack! For our test, it is forbidden, and if you choose to get a drink of water or use the restroom, the clock continues to tick. So I chose not to take a break and utilized the entire 4 hours to do my very best. I can't wait to write LCSW after my name. I mailed by license request to the Board of Behavioral Science "priority mail" today! MUCH APPRECIATION!!! 5 STARS for sure!

I decided to use TDC to prepare for my test after hearing good things about it from many different friends and colleagues. TDC did a great job in preparing me to take the test without overwhelming me with too much information. They broke down the study material into manageable sections and helped me to think critically instead of just memorizing material. I fully recommend TDC to anyone looking to prepare for their exam.

The course materials designed by Therapist Development Center is extensive and intense, simultaneously. It prepares you very well for all that probably could be there. I would highly recommend it to all aspirants for LCSW

TDC definitely played a huge role in my ability to pass the LCSW exam on the first try. The audio lectures and Quick Studies were exactly what I needed. I went thru the program three times and picked up new information each time. I often played the lectures on my computer at work while doing paperwork and it was very helpful! Thank you so much for such a wonderful program! I will definitely recommend to my friends who are just beginning to study.
