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 to 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 Clinical 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.


How many questions on the ASWB clinical exam?

Course Reviews

Great program

I highly recommend TDC, it really prepped me for the exam. I have been recommending this to social workers I know that are preparing for both licensure and clinical exam.
Thank you so much TDC!!!
I did it! I am an LCSW!!! whooot whooot!!!

Prepared me very well- have useful information on how best think about questions. Did not feel like I wasted time memorizing unnecessary information. I loved the audio element because I could listen in the car and feel productive in studying without having to sit down and read something.

This course was incredibly helpful in helping me study to pass the exam! The material was all extremely thorough and prepared me for not only the information covered but the style of questions and how to answer.

This study system helped me feel prepared for the LCSW. It not only assisted in refreshing the knowledge necessary to pass the exam, it provided encouragement & techniques necessary to assist me in managing my test taking anxiety! I would definitely recommend TDD to anyone preparing for their licensing exams! Thank you!

Amazing program! Thank you Amanda and everyone.

Great program! I felt confident going into the exam and worked the program diligently from start to finish. I passed by a lot and felt like the practice exams were very helpful.

So grateful I splurged for this study system. The questions were so similar to the ones actually on the exam. If you can pass these sample tests, you can pass the real deal!

I know I passed the LCSW exam because I studied with TDC. It made organizing my study time easy, and the lectures and practice tests thoroughly prepared me for test day! Thank you so much!

I am so grateful for the TDC Study System - I passed on my first try! I had purchased THREE other exam prep guides that only left me feeling overwhelmed, confused, insecure, and lacking direction (not to mention BROKE!) I am creative person and my learning style is a combination of visual and auditory. I struggled greatly in graduate school with retaining information and quickly figured out that I needed to purchase all my textbooks in two separate formats (witten & audio) and use them together. The TDC Study System was EXACTLY what I needed, with audio, printouts, and a structured layout.. PLUS it is affordable! I only wish I would have started with TDC from the beginning! If you're on the fence ... this program is really wonderful and I will continue to suggest it to everyone I know!

I felt so worried to take the LCSW exam. I googled study resources and the TDC was one of the first results and had everything I was looking for in study materials! The program literally gave step by step topics to study, and made the DSM sooo easy to understand. The recordings, quizzes, quick studies, and [very accurate] mock exams helped me not over study, gave me tools, and was so accurate as to what showed up on the test. I actually felt confident going into a test! So glad I used this study system and passed on my first try! I'd definitely recommend TDC to anyone studying for the LCSW exam.

This program was the reason I was able to pass. I failed my first attempt and then found this program and passed! Thank you!

I passed my exam and I cannot begin how elated I am. This program is exactly what has been described by other participants. THEBOMB.COM!!! If you Believe then you can Achieve. Proper studying of the material, controlling your anxiety, applying what you have learned effectively, taking breaks, POSITIVE SELF TALK THROUGHOUT THE EXAM as well as attacking it, will guarantee success. I have already informed 2 friends regarding the program! I can't thank TDC enough but most of all YIRLEY who is the real MVP!! Thank you again!!

Thank you so much to TDC for increasing my confidence for tackling this exam! With previously taking the exam with utilizing a different study system, I felt defeated and concerned I would never pass. I absolutely recommend TDC, thank you again for all the support through this process!

Very help program. Did better than previously. I just need to continue how to learn to answer these reasoning based questions

This program is amazing and was well worth the investment. The material is so well organized. Having everything in one spot took away a lot of the stress. It was the only study material I referenced and I felt well prepared. The pep talks and test taking tips were also extremely helpful. My exam score was slightly higher than my scores on the full mock exams. I’m recommending this program to all of my friends and colleagues preparing for the clinical exam. Thank you TDC!!

TDC is the best program out there! I have passed multiple tests taking TDC programs and I know several other friends who have as well. Highly recommend this program to anyone looking to pass the LCSW Clinical Exam or even just to gain valuable knowledge for your work in the social work profession!

I used TDC practice exams to help me identify knowledge gaps. Thank you!

The focus on test strategy, as compared to just content knowledge, is what helped me the most. I felt very prepared to face this test. I had the tools to breakdown each question and analyze what was being asked. Thank you very much.

Thank you!
