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

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2021 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 2021 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, and choosing the right social work ASWB Clinical exam guide can be confusing. 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 with other social work ASWB Clincal exam guides, 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

Only study material I used for both the law and ethics and LCSW exams in California and felt confident and even over prepared for each exam.

I purchased the study program over 4 years ago. Due to personal reasons, I had to postpone my exam until this year. When I started to review the material again this year, I felt my memory had this information already stored and it was easier to go over the course. For me, that means that the TDC wants us to learn the information rather than memorize it. When I went to take the test yesterday, I felt very confident. I felt I had the tools and strategies to tackle the test. I followed all the recommendations they give me and today I can say that I passed my LCSW exam on the first try!!! I'm so happy and thankful I found this program because it really prepares you for this test. I highly recommend everyone who feels anxious about the test to give a try to TDC, they will get you ready to pass and learn! Thank you TDC!!!

I love the lectures and quick studies and that there are two full mock exams. I thought the TDC questions were harder than the exam, but the rationale provided was enormously helpful.

I am so grateful to have had this excellent program to help through the process of studying for the clinical exam. I was so nervous but TDC gave me confidence. I am so happy to report I passed!

This program was amazing and worth every penny!!! It truly teaches you how to think and examine the questions so you will be able to apply it every question in order to find the answer. If I did not know the answer or if I was not too familiar with the topic, I was able to apply the thinking strategies taught by the program to answer the question. The lectures were also amazing. The strategies given to help remember something, like the C in accommodation means change and the S in assimilation means same, really helped during the exam as well. I went through the program fully twice, and went through a third time mainly listening to the lectures. I started studying in September and took the exam yesterday (December 21st) and passed, it was my first time taking the exam!!!!!! Thank you so much for this amazing program!!

TDC is awesome. I passed my first attempt on both the L&E and clinical SW exams. The clinical test is daunting, I know, but if you learn the content that TDC recommends and study the rationals on the mock exams, you'll do great. TDC encourages listeners to imagine the vignettes are real life scenarios that you're dealing with in a clinical setting. I found this problematic, because then I had preconceived ideas about the correct answer before I even got to options. I felt really frantic when "my" answer wasn't listed.

TDC absolutely helped me pass the LCSW exam! When I had anxiety the coaches were there. When I didn't understand they were there. I’ve been out of graduate school for more than 15 years and haven’t been in the social work field for more than 10 years. It was hard to take an exam being so out of practice but TDC helped me pass on the first round. Thank you!!

Thank you TDC! This course was excellent, and I passed on my first try.

TDC was a an invaluable resource in my study process. The program nicely informs and educates while also helping you to apply the information to the exam. The responses from the TDC staff are always timely and informative; they're literally there every step of the way. I needed 103 correct and I answered 131 - time and money well-spent!

I feel like the program helped me a lot. I highly recommend this program to any Registered Clinical Social Worker Interns that want to pass.

I could not have passed my clinical social work exam without the help of the Therapist Development Program. They go in depth on all the material that you need to know in order to pass. They also explain how you need to approach the test in order to succeed and give you really important tips. The multiple practice tests and mock exams really helped me get well prepared for them exam so that I felt really confident going in to take the test. I have a great deal of test anxiety and going through this program multiple times helped lessen my test anxiety. Thank you Therapist Development Center!

This program was absolutely amazing. It gave me the confidence I needed to face this exam.

TDC is amazing! I studied for 5 weeks and wouldn't have been able to do it without the program. I had been putting off the exam for over a year because I was so anxious and didn't know where to start. TDC organizes the entire course and materials in such an efficient and helpful way. Thank you for helping me pass!

Amazing program. I used it a few days before the test but the info was useful and consolidated in easy to understand topics. I passed on my first try. Thank you TDC.

Very helpful program! The audio lectures works well for my learning style.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this course! I felt so overwhelmed studying for this exam. This course was so well organized and user friendly, it gave me much more confidence, and direction! The method of communicating information was clear, concise, and helpful! I passed my first time, and have recommended this program to friends. 

I especially appreciate Heidis support and guidance as a coach. She helped me understand how to take what seemed like subjective and varied questions and to develop a real understanding of how to navigate these with increasing success. I appreciate the thoroughness if all of the material and the calm and easy to follow way it was presented.

I first have to give praise to Jesus Christ!! With much prayer and focus, I was able to pass this test! Next, TDC prepared me to answer the FIRST/NEXT/BEST/MOST questions which was critical to passing this test! The break down and information shared in the top 50 topics, multiple quizzes and mock exams were just what I needed to prepare for the real thing. The organization of the material, writing out my own notes from the audio lectures and applying that to the practice questions helped my the most. I cannot recommend this study program enough!

Thank you very much for preparing me well enough to take the exam. You are very professional and I have to thank you for teaching us how to take the test by sharing strategies that we can use as it definitely made a difference. Thank you again!!

I would like to thank TDC for preparing me well for the LCSW. I was able to pass on my first try and am so thankful for this curriculum and the coaches.
