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 don’t even know where to begin it’s such a long journey but I became a registered intern in 2009 about 6 years after graduating with my MSW but really uncertain if I wanted to pursue licensure.
I made a decision to become a registered intern believing that I would master that exam after a quick prep course offered locally in my city. Life intervened and my supervison was postponed several times. Three children later and another prep course I sat for the exam in 2015 I did not pass. I try to regroup obTained new study materials again in 2017 and missed passing by 8 points. I felt extremely defeated but I continued to study on my own and I was finally able to complete my supervision in the summer of 2018. Several coworkers and a face book group all talked about the TDC program. I honestly did not want to make another investment but they assured me it was the best thing they best decision ever made. The program provided me what I needed… Structure being out of school for so long I felt overwhelmed with where to begin studying the TDC outline gave me direction and clarity. I’m in tears as I write this, just as I was when I saw PASS on the computer screen. Thank you is truly not enough. Connie

I loved the having both audio lectures and written quick studies in the beginning to refresh/introduce relevant concepts. After that, having a multitude of practice quizzes and exams to complete and review was the most helpful! Sooooo grateful for TDC, couldn't have passed without y'all!

I needed 103 correct to pass, and I scored 133 correct. This was an incredibly tough exam but TDC prepared me well. I know I wouldn’t have been able to pass on my first try without TDC. Thank you!

I wholeheartedly attribute my passing the clinical exam to the Therapist Development Center's program. The material was clear and concise and the program was structured in such a way that I could still enjoy life during the time I studied. The gist of it all is that you can't possible learn everything that will be on the exam, but if you learn enough about the core topics, you'll have the knowledge to rule out the wrong answers and pass the exam. Thanks TDC!!

TDC teaches you how to read the exam questions which is the best kind of studying. I didn't feel like I needed to memorize content rather I was able to learn reasoning skills needed to pass the exam. I passed the first time with an 80% - well above the pass point thanks to TDC.

TDC is the only study system I used. The information was very comprehensive and the program was easy to follow. I felt well prepared for the exam. I had test anxiety so once I understood how to manage it using self talk and relaxation techniques I was able to pass the test. Thanks TDC.

My reasons for not passing the first time were due to life stressors and family deaths that made focusing on studying very difficult. The study materials are excellent and I'd highly recommend them to other people.

Excellent program!! I also used Pocket Prep app, the book that goes with that app, and watched YouTube clips, but TDC was by far the most helpful!! TDC helped me become confident in taking the exam. THANK YOU!

Thank you so much TDC for helping me pass my LCSW exam. This program was amazing and I couldn’t have passed without it! I love the combination of audio and worksheets. I am recommending this program to everyone who is taking the exam. I took the exam back in June 2018 and failed by 2 points using only the Dawn Apgar book.

I passed the ASWB clinical exam on my first attempt using TDC. I needed 103 to pass and got 119! This program covered all of the relevant material and was easy to follow. Other test prep material seemed overwhelming to me and TDC did an excellent job of narrowing topics down and preparing me for many of the different scenarios covered in the test. I found all of the lectures to be incredibly useful and the mock exams and rationales really helped me learn how to reason through the test. Thank you TDC! I have already recommended the program to colleagues!

Thank you, TDC! I would recommend this program to anyone who is busy, stressed, working full-time, has kids/aging parents/needy pets/fill-in-the-blank, and who feels like they have zero brain space left to prepare for the ASWB exam. Because that was me! This program makes it simple to get through some very difficult material. The way each week is broken down makes studying manageable and digestible. Make sure you review the day after you listen to a lecture, and be sure to take notes. I loved that I could speed up or slow down the lecture, and that I could revisit any of the material at any time. I also was so thankful for the quick studies, as they not only gave me important info, but also showed me the areas in which I was weak or had nearly no knowledge or expertise. I went a step further and made flashcards from highlighting select info from the quick studies and from my own notes. Without TDC's quick studies, I would not have been able to do that. Additionally, I found the blog to be very helpful in helping me understand question stems and the reasoning behind the answers. My favorite lecture/portion was the DSM differentials lecture. Very helpful to compare dxs side-by-side. Although I took a DSM V dx class in grad school, this side-by-side comparison/rule out method was not only helpful for the exam, but for my current practice as well! I did not expect to feel like a more competent clinician after completing an exam-prep program, but I do! Bottom line, do what works best for your learning style, but make sure that TDC's mapped-out program is your foundation. Thank you so much, TDC! I will definitely continue to recommend you to my MSW and MFT colleagues!

OMG!! I am so excited to finally say that I pass my LCSW exam! I really enjoyed TDC study materials and the convenience of the entire program. I loved that I was able to listen to the audio lectures on my break or while traveling in the car. The quizzes were great and they were just what I needed to enhance my studying. On October 12, 2018 my hard work paid off! Huge Thank you to TDC!!!!!

I had a great experience with this course. It was easy to access the material and I actually found it fun to study. The course prepared me very well for the exam and I passed with no problem on the first try. Thank you!!

I struggle with test anxiety and wanted to ensure that I passed the exam. I followed this program very closely. TDC is an excellent program. I loved the quick studies, audio recordings and the practice tests. The practice questions and rationals, were the best. I found those to be the most helpful. The coaches are available for additional questions and respond in a timely manner. The there is additional support from other people preparing for the test on the Facebook group. I will be recommending this program for people preparing for these tests. Thank you TDC for the support and tools needed to pass the LCSW.

Thank you so much for your guidance and support. Your tips on how to study and prepare for the test helped me with my test anxiety. I felt very prepared on test day and passed with flying colors!

I am so grateful to TDC for helping me pass the LCSW exam. The lectures, quizzes, quick study sheets and all the mock tests helped me tremendously. Having Amanda to talk me through the rationales and having her “there” with me during the exam made all the difference on some of the questions. The program also helped me prepare for the exam not just from a knowledge standpoint but mentally prepare as well. The support from Heidi and the online group was also great to have. Heidi was always very responsive and quick to help. Thank you, again TDC!

Thanks to this amazing program I passed the test on my first try! I just graduated from UCLA with my MSW and was worried about passing the test given that I have not logged any hours yet and am fresh to the field. I am getting licensed in two states and the other state allowed me to attempt the clinical exam. I wanted to get the test of the way, but had no idea where to start with regard to studying, so I met with a few people from my graduate program and was told to look into TDC! I am so glad I did. The mock exams and quizzes were incredibly helpful and got me used to how the test works. I am so grateful for this program and still cannot believe that I passed! Thank you TDC!!!!

I couldn't have passed without TDC. I scored 134, which is so much better than my wildest expectations. Every single question challenged my ability to reason out the answer. Many times I felt as though all of the answers were insufficient or incomplete and I would have struggled to make any choice at all if it weren't for the lessons learned thru TDC. What a nightmare. I'm so glad this is over. Thank you TDC!!!! .

I was very prepared this time. I failed my first attempt (by 5 questions), but I believe that If I had used your system prior to taking it, I would have passed.

I am so so glad to finally Pass my LCSW. It was a great deal of studying for me and TDC most definitely structured a very thorough program and plan to go by. Unfortunately there was not one question pertaining to theorists (Freud, Erikson, Piaget & Mahler), medications, research, defense mechanisms, fees, records, insurance & consultation with colleagues. It also took me the full 4 hours to complete and go over the marked ones. I also have not been in the field for over 25 years.
Thank you TDC because I could not have done it without you!
