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 was thoroughly impressed with the course organization and the breadth and depth of the content. When I needed additional support, Heidi was amazing and prompt in her responses as well as being spot on in her coaching. I think the best part of this program is that I actually feel more prepared to be independently licensed!

I was very nervous about taking the LCSW exam since it has been 9 years since graduating with my MSW and obtaining my LSW. I am currently employed as a school social worker, and have been since graduating, so I was a little "rusty" about the clinical setting and the new DSM V. A friend recommended this program and it was so helpful! This is the only material/program I used to prepare for the exam and I was able to pass the first attempt. The audio lessons the rationale for Mock Exam answers were extremely helpful.

TDC was a sound investment for me. I found the course format to be well designed and easy to follow. I had been granted my LCSW in 2005 under a grandfather provision when licensing laws were changed in NY. Based on my experience, I was given an exemption from taking the clinical exam at that time. Fourteen years later, I moved out of state and my new state required the LCSW exam. With the help of the course, I passed the test twenty years after graduating with my MSW.

It has been a journey for me to get my LCSW, but I learned a lot about myself. The thing that worked for me was having a family plan, support, sacrifice, and dedication. TDC works, trust the process and listen to the advise given throughout the course. Thank you Heidi for always being available. You gave me great advice on how to breakdown the questions. It made me study and see the questions differently. Trust the process! Faith Over Fear!!

I believe TDC saved me the second time I took the exam. The first attempt, I used part of TDC, but focused on another program that was pure overwhelming - too much information. Therefore, I failed. Prior to my second attempt, I used TDC, ONLY! I focused on the entire program, but mostly the audio. I listened to all of recordings many times to the point where I could repeat what Amanda was going to say. I took all the exams and went through the program 3x. That said, I PASSED! I’m so relieved to be done and thankful for TDC!

Today I get to share the amazing news that I am officially an LCSW! There is no way I could have passed this test without TDC. I have terrible test anxiety and all of the tips and tricks truly work! I went in with the mentality that I was going to pass just like Amanda suggested. I went in and wrote on the dry erase board: stay focused, remember to breathe, and I WILL pass this test and every-time I would get distracted or nervous I would read those three things and my nerves would calm. I imagined the results showing PASS and really was able to eliminate and thoroughly attack this exam just like Amanda stated I would be able to by the end of the program. It was truly the best money spent and I have never been more proud of a career accomplishment especially after four years of hard work! Thank you so much!

I felt prepared. If you study and take the mock exams and read the rationale for the ones you got wrong and learned from the mistakes you will do well.

First, I would like to say that I am so grateful to God! Second, I am grateful to TDC for creating ease in navigation on what to study and where to begin. I utilized Amanda's voice in helping with reasoning questions and understanding the stem of the question, reading loudly assisted, and having the confidence. I feel TDC prepared me to pass and helped me find the courage and confidence in myself!

I can’t thank TDC enough for helping me pass my exam! This comprehensive exam prep is the only thing I would recommend to anyone who is preparing to take their exam! I went through so many study guides and wasted so much money with other exam prep courses and didn’t pass! My only regret is that I didn’t find TDC sooner! Not only did I pass but I scored 10 points higher than what I needed to pass! I owe it all to TDC and will highly recommend this course to everyone I know! Thank you TDC! You are the BEST!!!!

TDC fully prepared me to take the ASWB clinical exam with confidence. The course not only gave me the information and terms to study but it showed me how to break down the questions correctly, which is a very important and vital key to passing this exam. I followed the coaches’ advice and was not disappointed. Thanks Amanda and Heidi for all the great support! You were the best! For those considering TDC I promise you it will be totally worth it!

TDC was extremely beneficial for me! The structure, coaches, Heidi specially, were supper supportive. Any questions i emailed Heidi was responding right away, that I felt My success was so important to her! Thank you Heidi
Amanda ‘s explanations were super helpful and rationals she used in 50 topics guided me through my exam! Highly recommend the program!

TDC really taught me to different ways to conceptualize different scenarios. I felt really prepared after listening to the audios.

This program helped me get over my fear of standardized test. The emphasis on acquiring reasoning skills and eliminating wrong answers both in the audios and in the Facebook group made all the difference for me. This was the only program I used and it was all I needed to help me pass the 1st time.

TDC was so responsive to my questions, extension, and was so thorough in regards to establishing a great study timeline and being prepared mentally with your approach to the test. I highly, highly recommend them to anyone taking licensure tests. I needed 108 to pass, and I got 120, all thanks to TDC!

I went in prepared and confident! I followed the suggestions given throughout the course, and I passed!! Your full mocks were the most useful. The questions you asked were on point with the actual test, and I didn't feel confused at any point. Your lessons on the DSM were super accurate, and I referred to them throughout my test. There were many DSM questions in the actual test, so I was prepared. Thank you.

After many failed attempts, I finally passed today !! The program was very efficient in helping me schedule study time, the audio's were awesome !! I took Amanda with me and it worked !!

Thank you TDC for helping me pass this exam. TDC is ALL I needed to prepare and know the material necessary to pass this test. I highly recommend this program, nothing else.

The TDC study system helped me to feel prepared and confident for my CA Law and Ethics Exam and exceeded my expectations for my LCSW Exam. My test anxiety disappeared after just a few questions when I realized that my reasoning and critical thinking skills had been sharpened and I was more than prepared to conquer the entire Exam! I passed on my first attempt and will forever recommend TDC to any and all colleagues.

I had recently requested an extension as my husband was about to be deployed. I was going to wait another 2 months because I wasn’t feeling confident or ready to take the LCSW exam for the third time. I decided to go ahead and schedule it before he left, because we can make excuses every day about why we “aren’t ready”. I scheduled my test for 8/2. I listened to the final pep talk and drove to the testing site. I am beyond excited to report that I PASSED this morning! Thank you TDC!

TDC is a far superior study course to anything else I have used. I would recommend this program. I spent most of my time studying exam questions and listening to the audio's. I would and have already recommended this program to many of my friend. Heidi was an amazing coach and answered all of my questions above and beyond what I expected. I put in the time and effort to study, but TDC did the hard work for me by creating this program. THANK YOU TDC!
