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

Our 2019 LCSW Exam Study System prepares social workers to pass the CLINICAL Level Exam administered by the ASWB. Our 2019 LCSW Exam Study System is fully updated to reflect the new 2019 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 attempted the LCSW twice in 2013 and failed both times! Not only did I fail, but I lost all my hours as well as my credentials.

6yrs later, I decided to go for it again and I purchased this system after researching it online! It was the only thing I used to study and I passed on this 3rd time! TDC does exactly what it promises as long as you commit to following the program as they suggest! I assure you, it’s the only study system you need!


Very well organized and step wise strength building test taking skills

I was working 5 days a week, commuting 2 hours a day, preparing for upcoming surgery and a job change; I had limited time to study. I started listening to the lectures during my commute, on weekends while doing errands, and when I'd wake up at 2am. I read the quick studies and did the mock exams, but basically just kept listening to the lectures until everything sunk in. A few days before my exam I had a question, and even on the weekend, Heidi replied within an hour or so. I passed on my first try with 127 (needed 103). Thank you TDC!

I passed the clinical exam this morning on my first try. This program prepared me well. I listened to the final pep talk right before entering the testing center and applied all of Amanda's recommendations/techniques. It is impossible to take any food/cough drops into the testing center without proper accommodation. I did take a break at question 85 to use the bathroom and drink a small cup of water provided by the testing center. Thank you Amanda and TDC staff. I am now a LCSW!!

I became an LCSW today on the first attempt and am happy to say I felt well prepared. This study program made me go in with confidence and with a strong understanding of the material needed to pass. I highly recommend TDC!

I love the structure of the program! It allowed for me to stay focus on the most common topics! Having access to Heidi/coaches is an amazing tool to have! She was so responsive to my questions and provided clarification within a day or so! I must admit I did not have a Facebook before starting my studying (for the third time), I did create a Facebook just for the support group. Although I did not post much or ask much, it did help me reading and validating that others were feeling the same way I was! also did enjoy that Heidi responded to questions and provided clarifications on the FB group. My favorite part of the program is that "They are with you until you pass", I couldn't imagine paying the program fee every time I test PLUS studying material every time (way to much $$$$$). I once requested an extension with another program and they denied the extension. Best of Luck everyone preparing for the test! Trust the process.

Thank you so much for the support and help. I passed my Clinical exam the first time I took it. I wouldn't have been able to do pass it on the first time without the help of TDC.
I highly recommend this program to everyone!

I PASSED all thanks to this program!! I had taken the exam a few times and would be within one, two, or three points from passing. After hearing about this program from a coworker I gave it shot. The program is laid out in steps and provides you step by step modules to study which I found super benefical. Previously I used exam study books and would be overwhelmed with what to study. This program gives you the exact information you need to pass the exam. Also the audio lectures are super helpful. This program also increased my confidence and I felt fully prepared when going into the exam. I ended up passing the exam with 112 questions and only needed 103 to pass. THANK YOU TDC!!

I felt the exam was really hard, there is no way I could have done it without TDC. 

Before my toddler, I was really good at compiling, parsing and studying for tests (I passed my LMSW on the first try with no program!). However, after being in the field for several years and now with a busy family life to boot, I knew I needed A LOT of support and a reliable source to prepare for the clinical exam - mostly because the exam relies so heavily on reasoning and HOW to take the test rather than recall. This was an incredible study system in every way: professional, friendly and incredibly helpful coaches; thorough and well organized material and easy to use wether doing it all online or printing out the material and carrying it around! Above all - they really understand how the test wants you to think: the practice questions/exams are a very accurate representation of what I encountered on the clinical exam. Thank you TDC!

This program truly helped with strategies! I felt that quite a bit of content on the exam was not part of the study material, but having TDC strategies helped me tremendously to pass! I needed 102 correct questions and I got 121 correct. Thank you TDC!!!

The TDC program really helped to get me organized and feel confident going into the exam. There were far more reasoning questions for the LCSW than the LMSW I took 2 years ago, and the mock exam accurately helped me to prepare for that. This is the second time I've used the program. First for my LMSW in which I passed the first time with a score of 127 out of 96 needed. This time for my LCSW I passed the first time with 129 out of 102 needed. I would definitely recommend this program to others!

I failed the ASWB clinical exam twice before purchasing the TDC program. I’ve now recommended this program to anyone who will listen to me! My score for my third was above and beyond what I needed to pass and they helped give me strategies to tackle this test that I didn’t find anywhere else. I’m very grateful I took the time and spent the money. The program can be used one consuming, but it is well worth it.

Thank you TDC for an amazing program. As a full time employee, mommy and wife your program structure worked perfectly for me. I felt prepared and confident going into the exam. Best of all, I conquer the ASWB exam.

I passed! This was my 2nd time taking the LCSW exam. The first time I used TDC and missed it by 5 points. I retook the TDC program but focused a little more on slowing down reading the questions carefully and considering the steps I would take if I were doing whatever session the scenario described and it worked. Don’t get discouraged. I went a year before I retook the exam and seeing that pass was so emotional for me. I definitely would not have been able to pass without the TDC program and listening to those audios while in traffic.

I was previously licensed in another state and was grandfathered in for the LISW license and did not need to take the exam. I was only required to do the supervised hours. I chose to be a stay at home mom for a few years and placed my license on inactive status. After moving to another state I attempted to reactivate and reciprocate my license to learn that I would need to take the exam. I successfully put off taking the exam for 15 years due to testing anxiety and being able to find employment without my license. TDC gave me the confidence to take the exam and I passed on my first try! On my test day I told myself to attack the test and followed the break and snack suggestion at the 85 question mark. I felt really confident going into the exam and reminded myself to "attack the test". I also employed the circle of confidence strategy that I learned through my hypnosis training/certification. This technique helped when my nerves kicked in during the test and I started second guessing my answers. I also used the "aha" tip and actually after checking a few marked questions chose to trust my gut and didn't look at any other marked questions and submitted my answers. I would highly recommend this program!! Thanks so much!

TDC fully prepared me to pass this exam! Thank you for this wonderful resource!

Although I received my supervision right after obtaining my LMSW over 25 years ago - life circumstances had forced me to put off the LCSW - but it has always been my long term goal to become an LCSW. Given that I had not taken any type of test in over 25 years - I was very anxious about the entire process. I signed up back in Dec to test on 2/5. I did some light studying in Dec– but had always planned on “diving in” in Jan. Well, I got a lingering “flu-like” virus in Jan (1st 3 weeks) and almost postponed the test - but am so glad I didn't. I’m married, have 2 teenage daughters, run my own company, had a national speaking engagement in Jan and a trip to NY pre-planned for Jan. Signed up with TDC on 1/11 and made a firm goal in my head that I would commit to study and follow their system. The beauty of the TDC system is you fit studying into your life – with pre-planning (and commitment to execute) – you can really fit it around existing commitments. For example – I planned out exactly what audio I would listen to on my flights to NY, down time at the airport and this type of thing. The “chunking” of study topics makes it so “do-able”! Also, Amanda makes it almost enjoyable to study - I felt like not only was I studying - but I was becoming a better social worker for my training company as well! The TDC advice from start to finish of the entire process was "spot-on". I truly took Amanda/Heidi and TDC into the test with me - they helped me stay calm (when questions were difficult), keep my focus, not panic and to remember that I had it within me to do this. I truly attacked this test thanks to TDC. My lifelong dream of becoming an LCSW has come true. Thank you so much to TDC - I highly, highly recommend their system!

I have been putting off studying for my LCSW for several years as I didn't know where to start with studying. An acquaintance told me about TDC and highly recommended it to use to help me with breaking down the steps to successfully pass my exam. I paid for the program several months ago, but as a result of work and job changes I just couldn’t seem to be able to make studying a priority. Finally January 22, 1019, I registered for my test, which was this morning, 2/13/19. Over the past few weeks I followed the program to a “T”, listened to the audio recordings a few times, and focused on the quizes. I felt confident going into the exam and am so relieved it it over. Follow the program, you too can pass! Good Luck!

I started off studying with another program and realized it was very disorganized and overwhelming with information. I was more stressed trying to navigate through the website then studying for the exam. Once I heard about this program I checked it out and it was exactly what I was looking for. Although I lost money to the other program it was worth using this program. I was confident and well prepared to pass my exam! Thank you so much for taking your time to create a well organized and stress free program!
