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 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 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 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 Exam Prep program 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!

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 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 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

This was by far the best test prep course that I found. I studied with several other programs and materials and did not feel like I was getting a handle on the expectations of the exam itself. TDC really brought in strategy and focus to my preparation that most definitely believe contributed to my success on the exam. I passed first try with a very good score.

This program is the most comprehensive learning and preparation program I have ever experienced. Throughout my professional and educational development, I have purchased many prep programs and have attended a couple of seminars. However, TDC is the most robust program thus far. As an audio/visual learning, it was suitable for my learning needs by providing audio recordings and printable study guides on all major topics covered in the exam. The quizzes and mock exams were extremely helpful in preparing for the actual test, as well as providing me with immediate feedback on content areas to study more. I also appreciated the opportunity to extend my program time, because at one point I felt I needed more time to prepare. The staff quickly responded to my request and extended it for free!!! Because of this program, the time I dedicated to studying, and many prayers, I PASSED my exam on the first attempt!!! One and done!! Thank you, TDC for everything!!!

Heidi, was amazing, she was the most supportive part of my experience. I never met her in person but she was like an angel. She made sure I felt clear about every topic that I had a question on and I could not have done this without her support along with the wonderful materials that TDC offers! So happy and can't thank everyone enough from TDC!

TDC was incredibly helpful! I was initially pretty anxious to begin studying, but was relieved when I began the program and saw how structured and comprehensive it was. Everything was straight forward and I actually used the techniques during the exam. The coaches were super quick and responsive as well. Not sure I would have passed without this program! Will definitely be recommending TDC to others.

I had taken the LCSW exam 2 times, failing both. To be honest, school was never hard for me. I didn't have to study much and passed without issues. The LCSW exam had been the first and only test that I didn't know how to study for properly. I am so thankful that I took the chance and got this program. It helped me to learn the way to think about the questions and how to break them down, step by step. I know that it was the key factor in my success over this exam. I would recommend this to anyone! They made me believe that I COULD pass, and I did.

I highly recommend TDC to anyone studying for their law and ethics or clinical exam. Not only is the program extremely comprehensive but coaches are regularly available and super helpful. Specifically, Heidi was of the most help to me and answered all my questions which put my mind at ease. I can't recommend this program enough. Thank you TDC for getting me through the final hurdle of licensure!

I failed by 3 questions the first time I took it. I was overconfident from having used an all but fraudulent, certainly shameful exam prep program that the ASWB promoted as if it were not an indedendent, private company. What a confusing, frustrating, disheartening and disillusioning experience that was. After using TDC, I passed by 30 questions. While I consider TDC to have been excellent, I believe that nothing can fully take away the uncertainty I experienced until the moment "pass" come on the screen after I submitted my responses for the exam. Even given this, I knew walking in to the exam, and see for sure now, that I could not have been better prepared. In particular, I see one of the key strengths of TDC to be the quality of the practice questions provided, not to mention the amount of questions of such quality (quality meaning how accurate they are to actual test questions). The real-world and down-to-earth explanations and overall lectures are key as well. Independent of the exam, I am hands-down a better social worker for having used TDC.

I took the LCSW exam in 2009 and I did not pass. Many years passed, so many that I had to redo my clinical supervision hours. Some of the material I had not seen or been exposed to since graduate school. This course truly prepared me to be able to pass the LCSW exam. The learning techniques, quizzes, lectures, practice test were amazing and were a true reflection of the exam.

Thank you TDC for a comprehensive study guide!

I passed and in my first attempt! Can’t thank TDC enough. My prep was so helpful and I could see all examples and material I studied through TDC. The mocks were super helpful. Thank you TDC!

Amazing study prep! I felt so overwhelmed prior to discovering this and I’m so grateful I made the purchase. Worth every penny!

I am grateful to have passed after taking exam 8 times. I took exam 3 times using this program but it wasn't until studying this last time it clicked that I needed to spend more time on the rationale aspect of the exam. Really grateful for the program. Thank you

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! TDC help me pass my exam on the first try. The format for this prep course is amazing. I was able to use each tip you provided during my exam. I have recommended this program to many of my colleagues. TDC made this process so much easier for me.

Thank you TDC. I passed the first time!!! I recommend doing as many of the practice quizzes and mock exams as you can. I did not get to utilize them all and feel my score would have been higher if I had. Though passing is passing so I will take it....

TDC provided the correct thinking and reasoning for the Clinical exam. Organizing your thinking, by what it could not be and then arriving at the correct answer in a timely manner. Before TDC, I tried everything recommended to me, starting with several other systems of study. I effectively knew the wrong answers by heart before TDC. I could have saved myself alot of grief and time lost, by using TDC to begin with.

I felt confident after scoring up to 120 on the final two mock exams. I applied for accommodations after receiving the required information from my doctor. I actually advocated for myself and it feels good to have done so. I prepared my fruit and drinks as suggested. I ate my breakfast protein and carbs, had my fruit and juice before I entered the test site. I leaned in, marked answers for review, had my snack at question 91. I finished up early, had time to review my marked answers, eat and drink a little more, completed the survey and then pressed the button. The message on the screen read you passed. I experienced a Hallelujah moment. I was more believing of what the paper read once I had it in my hand. I needed a score of 103 and I scored 110. Thank you so much TDC and especially Heidi who was with me all the way. Let folks no that Friday 13th is not a bad luck day.

First I thank my God, Jesus Christ for blessing me to pass the exam. TDC was a blessing sent by God to me and I am so glad to have had it. Amanda is an amazing teacher, I felt comfortable with her from the first audio tape. Amanda's test taking strategies were very helpful. I believe the reasoning skills were most helpful to me in building my confidence. I not only then knew what I got wrong but why I got it wrong. The practice tests allowed me to gain insight into what areas I needed help. I prayed and called on God throughout the exam to help me and He did. Amanda at times I imagined you there with me reasoning through what comes first or next as I answered. I had confidence this time, that I didn't have the past times I took the exam. Thank you Amanda Rowan for your willingness to work hard putting this system together in an effort to help us become effective clinicians. Thank God for using you to be a blessing to so many.
I have already recommended this system and will continue to do so.

I passed the LCSW exam on December 09, 2019, with 109 correct answers over 102 correct answers required to pass. I believe your materials are not overwhelming and are just the right amounts that covered what is needed to know,learn,and reason. The TDC team did a very good job by creating this study system. Without the TDC, I would have lost my motivation to study and take the exam. Thank you Amanda and all the team.

It was a journey. Having a full time job, children, and grankids all living at home. It was never quite during the day. I woke up everyday at 4AM and begun studying from 4:30 until 6:30 with weekends off. I did what the audios recommend, good sleep before, work out before, and a good breakfast (AM Test). Thank God I passed

The course was an amazing study guide. It provided me with great detail on topics and explanations for all the questions. I believe having the quizzes and multiple tests made a huge difference in the way I studied. I felt overwhelmed when I first started studying for the exam since there is just so much material, however this course provided me with a form of study guide and schedule. Overall, the material was great and thankfully I was able to pass the exam.
