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

Passed!! Highly recommend your program. I have text anxiety and this program assisted me in many ways. The information and the schedule was set up in a way that it was easy to follow and the MANY tests were extremely helpful. Gave me an idea where I needed to focus and continue studying. Also, assisted with reasoning of how to answer and put things in order! I literally studied until the day I tested. Also, the pep talk was wonderful and I used this information to assist me the day of the test. Took a break, appreciated the advise that you will never feel completely certain of all the answers, took you in there with me and attacked the test!! So grateful for your program, even with my anxiety I felt prepared.

So thankful to TDC for creating a program that helped structure and streamline what can feel like such an overwhelming amount of material. After being referred by a friend, I was quick to purchase the program and didn’t turn back, and passed the exam on 7/6/20! Having test anxiety is something I’ve struggle with and was a concern of mine, but I went in feeling more confident than ever after using TDC. Will definitely recommend in the future. Can’t thank you all enough!

I am so grateful for the TDC program! I can often over prepare and over study, leading to lots of anxiety. The program allowed me to adequately prepare and be mindful of approaching the test holistically. The program provided an opportunity to recap all the years of education, supervision, and clinical hours and feel prepared as a clinician. I especially loved the brief review and focused on those tips as I entered the testing center!! I I would highly recommend this program to anyone preparing for an exam.

I am very pleased with TDC I took the first pretest and i got a 54-56 percent. I was concerned, but once I started the program I felt more confident as the program does a good job at focusing on the essentials you need for the test. The code of ethics lecture i felt was the most helpful!! I earned 71 and 69 percent on the mock exams which is below the score that is recommended to pass (75) but Heidi was very helpful and i reviewed the code of ethic again and the quick studies. I felt confident in my abilities to pass, even tough my mock scores for a few points lower. Yesterday I passed my exam by 8 questions my first try. I am believer in this program as it teaches you to study smart and give you tools you need! I have and will recommend this program to others taking LCSW or LMSW exams. THANKS!

i want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to Amanda and all the TDC employees. Bethany is awesome as well and was there for me when I needed her. In fact you all are awesome! I struggled to pass for a while because my anxiety was getting to me. Every time I took the test,I doubted myself and my anxiety took over me. I would fail each time by 1 or two points. This time, I listened to the exam audios attentively and especially the macro strategies. I honed into making sure I understood the material. I can proudly say that I am a walking TDC based on the knowledge TDC has blessed us with. I recommend this study material-TDC to anyone who is preparing to test and get licensed. Thank you again!

Thorough coverage of all areas needed to pass exam. Structured and easy to follow.

I used TDC at the recommendation of a friend who raved about the program. After using it and passing on my first attempt, I can honestly say I'm so glad I did. This program prepares you to have both and understanding of the facts, and an understanding of how to think. I also LOVED the ability to send the coaches questions. They were extremely prompt in getting back to me and gave very thoughtful, thorough responses. I definitely recommend this program!!!

The study material really helped me with answering the reasoning based questioning. Many of the top 50 topics and recall material was also covered on the exam. I passed on the first attempt and I strongly believe it was due to this program. I have recommended my sister to complete this program as she is preparing for her LSW exam. When I start to offer supervision I will recommend this program to my supervisees.

I am so thankful for this program! My test was cancelled when COVID hit, and I was left hanging when there were no available test dates noted ANYTIME in the future. After checking regularly, a date FINALLY came up for a test at 6 am less than 3 weeks from the time I registered! Initially panicked I wouldn't have time to learn the material, I worked my way through the program which immediately calmed my nerves and walked me through all of the different aspects of the exam. On top of covering the subject matter, the program also reviews how questions are asked and what to expect when answering them (since the wording can be tricky!) The best part of this program is that it is realistic to the needs of the test taker, and only requires an hour or two a day (based on how you want to pace it) to really grasp the material and learn what you need. The audio lectures and supplemental material that goes with it covers everything from top to bottom. Can't emphasize enough what a great investment this is! THANK YOU Therapist Development Center!! I get serious testing anxiety and I passed on my first try!

I passed! I felt very prepared, no surprises, if anything my only surprise was how quickly I finished. Highly recommend this program!

The ASWB exam was way eaiser than the old CA exams! TDC did a great job in covering all the topics on the test which was more extensive than the old CA exam.

I passed my exam on the second try with the help of TDC! I did not fully complete the program but I did complete majority of it and felt that it was beneficial. I had only missed by a few points when I first took the exam and I wanted to make sure that I passed so I gave TDC a try and was not disappointed.

I was so scared to take the exam because I was unsure if I would be ready for it. I followed the study program to a T and took it after completing the entire program. I definitely was very prepared, because during the exam, I felt like I breezed through many of the questions. The program helps with the way you read each question and how to break down the answers. I was very happy that I used this program and the results speak for themselves.

You ladies were amazing. I cannot thank you enough! You prepared me thoroughly for all aspects of the exam. The quizzes and mock trials with the rationales for the correct answers were more helpful than I can express. It helped me understand why I got an answer wrong and reasoning behind the correct answer. Definitely worth the investment. Thank you for helping me reach my goals of becoming a LCSW!

I have been working as a hospital social worker for the past 4.5 years. I had begun feeling discouraged and felt that I needed to develop my skills. When I became eligible to sit for my LCSW exam, I was extremely excited to push myself to the next level in my career. When I failed on my initial attempt 6 months ago, I was distraught and felt like I received another blow to my already bruised ego - leaving me even more discouraged. When my friend told me about TDC, I was ambivalent at first because I thought of how expensive it was; however, the success/pass rate from those who utilized the program was enough to convince me to invest. I was so happy I did because I passed my LCSW exam on my 2nd attempt. I thank TDC for your dedication to the enhancement and empowerment of dispirited social workers who need that extra push!

I found the Therapist Development Center extremely helpful and I'm so happy I passed the exam on my first attempt! I took my LMSW exam 4 years ago and haven't studied for anything since so the program, audios, study guides, quizzes and exams really helped. Despite a set back due to COVID 19, and taking the exam with a mask on... I felt confident after completing the TDC study guide.

I passed my LCSW (clinical exam) today on the first try using TDC. I felt so well prepared for my exam. The material is comprehensive and provides an amazing knowledge base. You learn enough in a practical way to be able to apply it effectively on the test. I reached out for coaching assistance and both times I got a response from Heidi. Heidi provided such thorough information that just added to my understanding. I will recommend TDC to others seeking to have success on their licensing exams. Thank you, TDC!!!

TDC was a wonderful help in studying for my LCSW boards. Thank you for creating an excellent product. I felt very prepared to take the exam and I passed on the first try!

Thank you TDC!! I walked into that exam, actually EXCITED to show the test what I can do. Not only did I pass on my first attempt, the course has influenced my practice and confidence as a clinician.

I strongly believe that this program is the reason I passed my exam on the first try. The study material was amazing, the commentators provided great information, and the practice tests were extremely helpful. I have already told 5 of my other Social Work peers about this program and told them they needed it!
