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

This prep course plus the ASWB practice exam prepared me to take the test and pass it on the first time which was important to me (as there was a lot of time invested and a lot of ACTUAL money invested in this).

Cannot thank you enough!! This was my first time sitting for the test and I had heard stories about how hard and confusing many of my colleagues found it and was why I searched for a study course online. So grateful I found TDC. I felt confident and relaxed going into my test this morning. I heard the audio recordings in my head and used the recommendations for when to break and how to think about each question. The only time I felt my heart start to pound was when I pressed continue to finish the test and see if I passed. What a relief! Will definitely recommend this course and actually already have. Many, many thanks!!

Thank you so much. I have used TDC for the CA Law and Ethics and for the LCSW exam and I passed both the first time!

THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! What a perfectly put together program. The material was presented in a way that was clear and informative. I loved the online audio sessions. I felt myself getting more prepared and confident every day. I used the mock tests and the full length exams at great length. I went over and over the question many times looking at my mistakes. When I took the real exam this past weekend I felt the questions were slightly easier than the practice ones. I also utilized the email a coach on two separate occasions nd the instructor got back o me very quickly with a direct explanation for what I was asking. I wish I knew about this program the first time I took it. On my 1st exam I got 88/102 needed and did not pass. The 2nd time I got 115/102 needed and passed. If you are on the fence. Just invest in the program and yourself!!!!! Matt LCSW CT !!!!!!!

I have been out of school for several years. This program helped me prepare for the test and focus on what I needed to study. I bought another book the first time and found the material and what I needed to study extremely overwhelming.

This was my first time taking the clinical exam. I was really overwhelmed with all the information out there. I had a co-worker who used TDC to pass after being unsuccessful. The only additional material I used was the ASWB practice exam 2 weeks prior to the test. I felt pretty confident going into the test and followed all the recommendations with the breaks etc. I cannot thank you all enough! This was a big hurdle in my career and I passed on my first try! I actually did a lot better than I thought I would. Thank you!

This system made the Clinical exam seem much more approachable, because they literally tell you how to approach each type of question on the exam. With all the pressure to pass, I was pretty nervous, but on test day I was ready and confident to, "Attack the test!". Thank you for what you do!

Thank you for this program. I felt supported all the way. This program allowed me to focus and study in an organized way that was so helpful. I especially appreciated the follow up from when I didn't pass previously.
Thank you Amanda and everyone!.

TDC is the only study program you will need.

After using TDC and taking the exam to day for the third time, i felt totally prepared. I gained and updated knowledge, and i also learned ho to take the exam. What to look for and break the questions down. I feel with out using TDC, i would not have prepared to pass this exam.

After failing this test twice over 10 years ago I avoided it like the plague and decided to finally tackle it again! I was extremely nervous, but the program really had me feeling prepared. I did the 8-week version. I didn't feel prepared after just 5 weeks. When I took the test, I could hear Amanda in my head as I was answering questions, helping me decipher between all good answer choices. Having solid materials presenting in a manageable way was invaluable. I highly recommend this course.

The audio tapes were crucial to my learning style.

I took the test a few different times and each time, my score improved. TDC definitely supported me through this journey. I appreciate Heidi so much because a week before my test I completed the practice exam from ASWB and I was not showing much improvement. I reached out for support and Heidi got back to me immediately. She answered all my questions and continued to respond quickly. Her responses were well thought out and ultimately helped me improved my thought process and how I should maneuver through various questions. Thank you so much for all of your support !

Great tool! Appreciated the breakdown of the questions and answers. Passed the first time!

I was very discouraged registering for the LCSW exam ....again. I had taken it 3 times before and I wanted to give it one last shot before I completely gave up. I searched out study guides, and found out about TDC. Some people recommended reading a book, but I know myself, and reading dos not help me absorb the material. I need to have someone tell me as I read. This course was excellent for that. This is a hard test. While you need to know all the recall info, you do need to know that info to apply it to clinical situations, not to regurgitate it. That was the hold up for me from before. I tried to memorize so much stuff, and it didn't really help. I really liked the way the study courses were lined out. I loved the planning guide.I started TDC with about 8 weeks before my exam. I studied 4-5 nights a week and when I took my practice exams, I didn't use any materials. I loved that your score came right up and I didn't have to guess how many points I had or needed.
The tips about not getting hung up (because it may be one of the 20 that don't count) and about not second guessing were great. When I did my last mock, I thought about it that way. I didn't go back on more than about 3 questions and I didn't change any answer.
In summary, it is a great program. It made sense. The study guides were so helpful and made me realize what I knew and what I didn't. I would recommend it to anyone, however DO IT BEFORE THE FIRST TIME! Don't wait to fail 3 times like I did! Get it first. It is worth every penny!
And, don't bother with asking the testing center about juice, fruit or food. The answer is unequivocally no. And that's something to take up with ASWB.
Thank you for everything. And to Heidi, thank you for always answering so promptly.

TDC was the perfect study system for the exam. I feel like it equipped me very well with tools and knowledge necessary to be successful. It allowed me to go into the exam feeling confident, I would highly recommend to others!

I graduated from my MSW program 21 years ago and have spent much of my time in management in hospice. I finally returned to direct Care a few years and pursued licensing. Needless to say it had been years since I have taken any significant tests. TDC helped me get through the CA Law And Ethics Exam last year passing the first time and I knew this program would be my best option for the ASWB. I followed the program and trusted the process. I did not need to reach out to the coaches, but appreciated the ability to “channel” Amanda during the Exam and felt really confident this morning before the test this morning. The questions were comfortably familiar on the test and I was able to finish in under 3 hours. So relieved to be through this and thankful for the folks at TDC. I did join the Facebook page but committed to not viewing/reading it the week prior to testing as hearing from those who had tested multiple times and failed made my confidence drop. Keep up the good work TDC!

I have taken the test 2 times prior to TDC. I have attended a 2 day prep course and It did not compare to TDC. I love that TDC provides info from A to Z starting with getting organize, having a snack mid test, and providing info in a variety of ways (Audio lectures, handouts, quizzes and test). I could not have done this without TDC. Not only did TDC prep me for the test, it has enhanced my overall knowledge for my career.
Thank You TDC ❤️

What an excellent study system! One of the social workers at my organization used it to pass and recommended it to another social worker. We've all been using it since! It's easy to get through, doesn't feel overwhelming in information like the study books, and best of all, teaches you how to take the test effectively. When I was taking the test, even if I didn't know the answer, I was able to figure it out by using the test-taking tips. I highly recommend this system!

I liked the organization and day by day study plan. I followed the 5 week plan and felt it was sufficient, and I felt guilt free having fun on my “days off”. Quick studies were very helpful and am appreciative to have been able to print out the quizzes. Only recommendation is the option to download audios to listen to when offline, maybe through an app for copyright purposes. Otherwise, helpful program!!!
