National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2019 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 new content on the 2019 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).
  • 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!).

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! 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 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

I passed both the Law and Ethics and Clinical LCSW exam on the first attempt using this program. I scored nearly a 90% on the LCSW exam in only about two and a half hours. I have recommended this program to many peers and will continue to do so moving forward.

I passed the LMSW without studying and studied quite a bit for the LCSW test and did not pass the first time by 6 points! I was devastated! So for the last 3 months, I have been plowing through your materials every free moment I had the chance and the information that I learned and clarity it has brought to me as a practitioner is more valuable than passing the test today. I am a more competent Social Worker today because of your program! I am also an LCSW!!! Thank you so much!!!

TDC is worth the money. It is an investment, but worth it. I felt ok paying the price because of the 95% pass rate. TDC is about the same cost as the ASWB exam, so I decided I would rather pass the first time then end up paying to retake it. I initially started with using a different study book, but quickly realized my confidence was not growing. I went into the LCSW exam confidently and comfortably. I passed with a comfortable margin. The final mock exams are indeed a good indicator of how you will do on the exam in my experience. I studied almost nightly with TDC for 4 weeks. I appreciated the audio lectures because they made the material come to life in clear and applicable ways. Thanks, TDC!

I am so thankful I took this course. I heard back from the coaches within a super prompt manner, and with such clear, supportive answers (thank you, Heidi!). The test was challenging, though I reminded myself I was prepared thanks to the guidance of each module. By the end of the practice tests, and then the aswb practice test, it started to seem like this was something doable, and I focused on the next step - each problem as it came. When answering I had a strategy for the first/next and most/best, which was helpful for me in navigating the structure of the exam. Amanda is right - know your code, put yourself in your supervisors shoes and answer from their vantage point, imagine Amanda is in the room with you and picture how you'd reason through the issue if a client were in your office. I will recommend this course to others in the future.

The program was very thorough and it prepared me for the exam. I had a lot to learn and my biggest area of growth for preparation was the reasoning and decision making. I genuinely felt like this program helped prepare me to become a more independent clinician. There is still so much I have to learn, but I was able to learn the basics/principles of social work areas where I haven't done much work (for ex. with elders). The material has been helping me in the therapy room and in addition, I truly appreciate the experience of reading through the NASW Code of Ethics and hearing that lecture a few times. The last time I touched it was in the first semester of grad school. The course has renewed my passion and love for our ethical values and I truly believe it's made me an even more ethical social worker. The Question and Answer service was also extremely helpful when I was trying to further understand the rationales and reasoning. THE most important thing I did during this program was ask the coach (in an email) what patterns she noticed in my questions and if she had any advice for me. It was then that I was guided to look for patterns in my wrong answers and when I realized I was struggling most with FIRST/NEXT questions, so I could focus in on that strategically for the rest of my studying. After that, my practice scores rose by at least 15%. On the ASWB exam, I passed with 121/150 points (I only needed 102 to pass). Thank you TDC!
(p.s. Please let me know if this testimonial will be published with my name and where, so I am able to track it especially since my pic might be involved :))

I learned so much from this program, It's not ALL ABOUT taking the exam - it is also about expanding our horizons and learning the areas we have not yet fully experienced. I was able to look back on the 2+ years I worked with clients in therapy and discover some of the issues where I could have done better - and will in the future. I can't recommend this program enough.

I am forever grateful for the TDC program! I went into this test nervous and afraid of what the results would be but thanks to TDC all of the anxiety and doubting myself slowly faded as I studied! Thanks again TDC!

This program is absolutely amazing! I'm thankful to God for leading me to TDC in efforts to build my confidence and allowed me to pass the LCSW exam!!

This program is truly heaven sent! I don't have the words to express just how appreciative of what TDC does! This is not just a program IT IS ONE CREATE BY US (LCSWs) FOR US!!! I couldn't be more happier with this program and I will never stop singing your praises!!!! TDC ROCKS!!!! Can I rate any higher than 5 stars?!!!

I recommend TDC over any other preparation programs. After using another prep program previously and failing my first attempt at the clinical exam, I was feeling defeated and put off the exam for several years. After finding out about TDC, I researched the program and decided to purchase, and it was money well spent! I felt that TDC provided all of the organization for those that may struggle with it. I felt as if I was sitting in a classroom, listening to a lecture. The breakdown of the types of exam questions helped A LOT. The quizzes and the mock exams were great in preparing for the real exam and building up the tolerance for sitting for 4 hours. I no longer felt defeated and I was feeling more confident. I thank TDC for preparing me!

TDC's Top 50 Topics make studying content much easier. You know what you have to focus on instead of hours of studying content that is not on the test. Mock exams are the best way to reduce anxiety. Thank you TDC!

<> Thank you for helping me pass the LCSW exam today. I passed it at the first try, scoring 122/150 (passing score was 103)! Audio courses helped me the most, and you trained me to think “in order” and “eliminate”. I could hear your voice as I took the exam, and I was able to pace myself (but still had 40minutes left to go over marked questions!) So THANK YOU!! 

I’m thrilled to say I passed on my first attempt using TDC. The program worked really well for me and being able to listen to audios, use quick study sheets and listen to rationals made a big difference. Leading up to the exam, I had some health issues which made studying and retaining information a little more difficult. Co-workers and family believed in me even though I felt a bit “foggy”. I listened to the final review and pep talk several times and took the test strategies to heart. The toughest part for me was to tolerate the uncertainty of all the reasoning based questions. I leaned in, stayed focused and present, followed the “aha” rule and finished strong. Thank you TDC.

I have always been nervous about multiple choice tests, The course was helpful in understanding the questions better and finding the correct answers. I am a visual learner, and what I felt was most Helpful in my studying was the actual mock exams, and then reviewing the correct answers that were missed to understand what the question was asking for. When I started the LCSW exam, I was instantly relieved from the first few questions since they were so familiar. I got 125 correct with the passing score for my version being 103 needed. I was so surprised and proud of myself, especially since I’ve never tested well in the past for exams before! Thank you!

Seeing "Pass" on the screen was an amazing feeling, one that I attribute to The Therapist Development Center. TDC not only prepared me to feel confident to pass this exam,  but it also made me a better clinician. I have gain a lot of knowledge while going through all the steps, between all the quizzes, quick studies and mock exams. During the exam, applying the strategies was key for me move through the questions, especially the harder ones, for some instances, It felt like I took Heidi and Amanda with me to the exam. Thank you TDC, for creating this wonderful program and I will be recommending  TDC to all my fellow colleagues studying for their exams.

I would highly recommend this program! It made me feel confident going into my test and gave tips on successfully passing the exam! It helped decrease my anxiety! Thank you so much! I’m so excited I passed!!

The thought of the LCSW exam was terrifying to me and I had such bad anxiety about my ability to pass, even though I know the information. This program did a phenomenal job of explaining reasoning strategies and giving rationales that helped ease my anxiety and set me up to pass the exam on the first try!

I found this system very easy to follow. I felt less pressured to cram information in my head. TDC study system helped boost my confidence because it too in to consideration the different ways individuals learn best. Thank you!

This was my second try and I passed with TDC's help. I scored 79% on my first full mock exam and 74% on my second full mock exam. I took both Amanda and Heidi with me to the exam. After every mock/full mock, I emailed Heidi with all my questions and she responded back with thorough responses. She is so patient! TDC really made a difference in my studying this time. Thank you so much!

I passed the LCSW!!!! Thank you TDC for your program. I went into the exam prepared, knew that I need to read each question thoroughly and not over think which is what I did with my first attempt. I would definitely recommend your program to others and have done so already! Thank you again!
