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

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 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 with 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. 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 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 happy that I invested in the TDC program. It helped me a great deal. The audios and quick studies were a life savior. The rationales provided helped me understand how to break down the question and select the correct answer. I preferred using TDC over all the other study materials I utilized. You guys are amazing! Thank you for helping me pass my exam on the first go around.

I used the TDC for my Law and Ethics exam and felt super prepared so I knew that I was going to use TDC again when it came to studying for the clinical exam. I'm so grateful to the way that all the material is thoughtfully put together and explained. I felt confident in my skills to decipher between First/Next and Best answer questions, as well as deconstruct application based questions. I also felt that the practice and mock exams aligned with questions on the actual exam. Thank you again TDC!!!

I followed the study guide but in a timeframe that was more suited to my learning style. I studied for about 5 weeks before my exam and it gave me enough time to go over areas where I felt I was weaker. I felt well prepared and only used TDC to study. In the past I’ve glanced at other trainings friends have attended but nothing has compared to TDC.

This program improved my reasoning skills and how to approach this test! I failed once before and was afraid to take the test and fail again. The information and guidance from this program helped me PASS!!! The information is organized and condensed to focus on important concepts to study. I don’t think I could passed this test with such confidence without the Therapist Development Center. I will recommend this program to anyone registered to take their AWSB clinical exam

When Amanda said, "If there's ever a time on the test that you absolutely don't know the answer, just think what would Amanda do, that really works!" This piece of advice helped me to not get stuck and narrow down to the best answer choice possible.

The Therapist Development Center LCSW study preparation is a perfect blend of structure, audio, and brief reading and writing exercises. I wished I found this study guide earlier. Thank you so...much Therapist Development Center!!!

I was so nervous at first but my friend recommended that I use TDC. I felt more than prepared and I went into the exam room confident that I would pass. I needed 102 correct to pass and I received 111. Thank you so much! I will recommend the program to all of my colleagues now.

Thank you all to TDC for putting together this amazing study program. Although it took me two attempts to pass the LCSW, I felt adequately prepared to tackle the exam during both attempts. I recommend this course to anyone preparing for the Masters or Clinical exam in the near future. Complete this course in addition to a healthy self-care routine and you will be well on your way to passing your next exam.

Thank you so much for the amazing study system, I am confident this study system is what helped me to pass!!!!!!

This is an invaluable resource for preparing for the clinical social work exam. Material is clearly organized, lectures are very informative and highlight key topics. The lectures also prepare you a great deal with "how the test tests" and enable you to critically think about the questions the way in which the test is wanting you to to get to the best/correct answer. HIGHLY recommend!

The audios helped out so much!!

I never felt truly prepared until I used Therapist Development Center! I was able to pass the ASWB LCSW exam on the first try! Every colleague that I know has used TDC and has passed the exam. Getting in the proper mindset for the exam is critical and that is what TDC offers beyond just mock exams and quizzes. Highly recommended!!

TDC provides an excellent consolidation of necessary knowledge and skills upon which to base preparation to sit for the LCSW Clinical Exam: their services are well worth the cost and I highly recommend them!

This program helped me gain so much confidence in myself before going into the test! 10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants to pass on the first try!

Thank God! I'm so happy, I passed TDC really works!

TDC helped me get focus and really understand the exam. I highly recommend the program to others.

Thank You TDC for all your support. I had to request multiple extensions because of illness, injury and overall life and without hesitation it was extended. I listen to your advice specially the “make sure you sleep well the night before” but I did it for a whole week to reset my sleep cycle to be awake and alert for the test. Thank You , Passed it on my First attempt on a 4 AM Test Time due to COVID19.

I am beyond thankful I purchased your program! Not only did it prepare me for the exam, but it most definitely made me a much better social worker and touched on a lot of things in more detail than my grad school program even did. The many ways to learn the material benefited me greatly. Thank you so much!

I’m so glad I invested in TDC! I did not want to risk failing my exam after such a long road to get all my hours so I took the leap of faith and tried the program. It was extremely well organized, easy to use, and I learned a lot along the way that helped me not only pass the exam with flying colors but feel more knowledgeable at my place of employment. Thanks TDC! You’re rockstars !

This program really taught me how to think about the questions and trust my clinical judgement. I felt comfortable and confident taking the test and am so happy I chose TDC.
