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! 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

TDC was an excellent, comprehensive program! The trainers are very knowledgeable and the rationales that are explained throughout the course work and mock exams are tremendously helpful when sitting for the actual exam. I passed on my first try with an 83!! Thank you TDC, I will certainly recommend the program to other social workers!!

I passed my LCSW exam after previously failing. I truly believe that TDC prepared me far more than any other program I used previously (LBSW/LMSW). The program was structured and provided adequate focus on each subject. The audio recordings were soooo helpful!! Thank you for creating this program, it works! I’ve recommended it to friends and colleagues and they love it!!

My journey to obtaining my LCSW is long, so I will make this short. My goal has always been to obtain my LCSW since I started grad school in 2003 (my chidlren were 3 years old and 5 months old at the time). My life has been very full, very busy, and my persistence and determination has finally paid off! My husband and children (who are now 20 and 17) have sacrificed a lot as I continued to pursue my social work career and journey to obtain my LCSW. Honestly, I'm just glad the test is over and I passed!!!

Thank you, TDC, for the study system. It was extremely helpful! Also, thank you for providing this valuable service to militay Veterans at no cost!

Whew! I thought I was failing all throughout the test but I kept my faith, took a break at question 85, a few deep breaths, and asked what would Amanda do in this situation?! Thank you TDC. Y'all are A1!

With the structure and broad base of materials, Therapist Development Center was exactly what I needed to pass my exam on the first try! I highly recommend this program without hesitation. Worth every penny.

Each time that I went through the course I learned to focus on different areas of the exam that I had previously missed or overlooked. Sometimes it was even a matter of not thoroughly understanding the concept, but once I did, it made a huge difference. Breaking down the questions step by step and looking at FIRST, NEXT, BEST OR MUST steps really helps you think through those steps and realize that it's just a matter of prioritizing what is most important. It makes a huge difference in the learning process how many times you repeat and re-learn the information. The short quizzes were also very helpful as well as being able to re-take the mock exams and quizzes. Last of all, it's important to recognize what areas you struggle with and really try to focus in and learn how to overcome those weaknesses and turn them into permanent strengths. Overall I felt like that TDC did a great job in covering a lot of information.

Really felt prepared with the strategies taught in TDC particularly FIRST/NEXT, etc. I also didn't get stuck when I didn't know something - just answered the best I could and kept moving.

I have used other study programs in the past and this is by far the best out there. All material is covered in the exam prep which helped me to feel much more confident going into the exam and more comfortable with implementing what I learned on the exam.

Therapist Development Center stays with you until you pass!

Buy It and you won’t regret it

My only suggestion is to break up the audio lectures into increments of maybe 10-15 minutes. it's easier to study with smaller videos and not have to listen to a one hour lecture or pause and remember where i stopped at.

As a person who was immersed in the clinical aspect of addressing members needs, I felt confident on that front. However, I felt unprepared in the MACRO aspect. That was until I used TDC! It completely prepared me on both aspects of the exam. I was confident going into the exam as I had a better understanding on how to think during the exam. I am so grateful for the program, as the MACRO portion was evident on my particular exam. I had attempted several times during my exam to use the acronyms we are all so familiar with. However, found that it did not assist me at all when choosing the correct answer. Had I gone into the exam with just those acronyms to fall back on, I would not have been successful in passing on the first try. THANK YOU TDC for helping me prepare, and instilling in me the confidence I needed to not only pass the exam, but to do after scheduling a mere 4 days before taking it, and during a pandemic!

I passed! First try!! I needed 103 pots and I barely squeezed by with 104 but I did it!! Thank you TDC! Your corse was awesome and definitely worth the price!!

I wouldn’t prepare any other way, than with TDC. You get both a coach and the knowledge you need to refresh in the areas for the exam. I plan to continue to use the other resources from TDC for years to come!

I had many trials before taking this course, including the passing of my father, but I was able to maintain focus at the right time. I knew several others who took the test before me and did not only missed by 1 question! They all used a variety of study programs along with TDC. I decided that your evidence based pass rate was excellent (+90%) therefore if I used your system, and only your system, I felt that I would be successful. I relied on the structural integrity of the model and held fast to every tip, guidance and instruction I received. I was not nervous for the test and when I received the “pass” along with the 116 score (103 needed to pass) I was ecstatic and knew I had made the correct decision. For others who are taking this test, stick to the TDC plan and do not confuse yourself with additional YouTube or other systems of instruction. Woo hoo!!! I totally kicked butt, thanks TDC, you rock!!

I took the exam on March 6, 2020. I felt prepared going into the test and was ready to tackle it head on. I had minimal text anxiety and I felt the program prepared me not only with the knowledge, but with the skills set to take the test. I was able to complete the test in two hours, and got 116 out of the 102 needed for my state. I am definitely satisfied with my experience using the Therapist Development Center.

For someone who has very high test anxiety and was on a time crunch, this program was great. I loved the schedules it gave along with all the helpful guides. Having a "coach" whenever I needed was also very helpful. The best part were the ½ mock exams and the 2 full mock exams! That prepared me the most. Thanks to TDC, I was beyond prepared for the exam. I passed on my first attempt with flying colors!!

TDC was the missing link I needed to finally Pass this exam. I highly recommend this program to others as it came highly recommended to me during my years of struggling to Pass. This has been a long journey to finally get to this point. The couches remained supportive all the way through and extended my services after not passing my first attempt using the program. I felt very much encouraged and was even provided additional tips/information above the wealth of info already available. The Quick Studies and Audio Lectures truly were my saving grace. I cannot say enough about how well this prepared me and how it aided in my confidence to navigate this Exam. Worth EVERY dollar spent!

Finally! I passed the LCSW exam. Very happy to have this step completed in my career journey. Thanks to the team at TDC for renewing my subscription without any hassles. TDC is professional and they care about the student from start to licensure. I recommend this program to those looking for an efficient study system.

This was an amazing program. I listened to the top 50 topics every day for at least 4 weeks. It gave me the ability to go in to the test feeling confident.
The test was hard. But, I was able to think about the answers in a way that I learned in this program.
I don't know that I would have passed without this program. I will definitely recommend this to friends.
Also, I asked for an extension because I had a few family deaths in a short period. They extended it for me without any problems.
