National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2020 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 2020 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).
  • Experienced coaches 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 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

All of the instruction on how to think through the questions was very helpful. The knowledge covered was comprehensive. And the pep talk at the end provided good strategies for test-taking. I felt confident during the test that I would likely pass even though I knew I would get some wrong. I passed with the same approximate score that I received on the final 4-hour mock exams, and there were no major surprises.

This study guide is wonderful! It helped me a lot to pass and I felt very confident going into the test.

Thank you TDC. I found the study program very helpful as it helped increase my score from failing to passing. I used other material out there and by far found TDC the most helpful. I am grateful my journey to obtaining my LCSW is over and I can continue to pursue my career of helping others.

Choose this website to study for your social work exam. I just passed my exam 2 days ago and the reasoning skills this site teaches are what you will be tested on. I had very few memory only questions. Nearly every question on my test required using reasoning skills to discriminate among various social work situations. TDC gives you quizzes and then goes over the reasoning why one answer is the best. When I was taking the test I could here the voice of Amanda and the others saying "a is something you would do but not necessarily first, C is a strong answer as a and b could be rolled into it" and so on. I used a Brand X site that only asked questions and told you if they were right or wrong. I know for a fact some of there answers were incorrect.
Again, the way to pass the social work test is to bone up on your reasoning skills, that's what The Therapist Development Center teaches.

I passed my LCSW on my first attempt!! Great program!! Very thorough!!!

I found the course to be immensely helpful. I have struggled with test taking in the past and post concussion struggled even more. I don't think I would have been able to pass if it wasn't the thorough explanations of how to analyze the stem question, the audio explanations of top 50 topics, and the many practice tests which were available and realistic to the actual test.

I took the LCSW exam today for the first and last time! I passed with 83% and truly have this program to thank. While writing the test during the stress of a global pandemic I could still hear Amanda's voice coaching me through those tricky questions. I can't think the staff at this program enough for giving me the confidence I needed to ace the test!

one question on the exam was the exact same as the 'grounding veteran with PTSD' question on my practice test. I felt very comfortable as the exam was 90% or more situational - which was the same as TDC's preparation. I had no questions dealing with Erikson, Freud, or other developmental models, but most of what I learned helped me immediately rule out multiple answers. I knew the answer to most questions and was able to eliminate down to the correct answer several times. I answered 121 correct and needed 103 to pass.

Thanks! I'll continue to recommend your program to fellow social workers!!!

This course guides you to the right areas and depth of study. If you follow their advise step by step, you WILL pass the test. It was VERY helpful.

I am thankful that I used this system. It put me in the thinking mode for taking the LSCW. The most helpful part was having a logical set up study guides to help keep me focused. I would NOT have passed without this system.

I have been shouting about this program from every roof top possible. It really helped me go in feeling confident and redy for the exam. I tell all the therapist if they just work this program they will do well.

I had great difficulty preparing for my first attempt at the LCSW Clinical Exam. I tried reading the ASWB Book and listening to YouTube videos but I felt unprepared and very anxious! After reading great reviews of TDC and hearing from my coworker, I decided to give it a try! I am so very glad I did! Your program is very well organized and structured with a variety of visual and auditory information! I went into my second attempt at the LCSW Exam more confident because of the TDC program! Extremely highly recommended!!!

TDC is amazing and it prepared me to pass my exam! I studied for 8 weeks and passed!

Thank you!

This program was excellent to prepare me for my exam! It was structured, easy to follow and focused on key points. Being able to stay focused on the current care of my clients while preparing for the exam was the most important thing for me. I really appreciated how this program assisted in managing study time and encouraging work/life balance. I've recommended this to every colleague in the process of taking their LCSW exam and will continue to do so. Thank you so much for making this hurdle that much easier to get over!

My name is Spencer K. from Charleston, SC. I heard about this program from another LISW-CP who passed her exam with TDC. This program was unbelievably helpful in preparing me to pass the social work clinical exam on my first try, and honestly I don't know if I could have done it without them!

I know that the price of the program can be a deterrent for people, especially for those of us who are employed in non-clinical social work roles. However for my situation, an upgrade to a clinical license has bumped my base salary $15,000 (a no-brainer). I am glad I went in prepared, and TDC had everything I needed all laid out and organized. All I had to do was show up (virtually) and trust the process. In the end it worked out for me, so I really could not be happier.

Thank you! It was literally harder trying to get Social Work Board of Examiners, SC to move my paperwork through Columbia to the ASWB than it was to sit for this test.

TDC was extremely helpful is preparing for the LMSW exam - I had no idea where to start, and being able to log in and listen to a lecture and follow it up with a study sheet/quick study made studying much less stressful! TDC was extremely responsive to questions and provided thorough explanations. Thank you to TDC for helping me pass my exam on the first time!

very helpful, wasn't worried about studying beyond material provided. I loved listening to the audios in the car on my way to work. made it easier for my lifestyle, and was super thorough.

I recently relocated from California to Michigan. I have been licensed in California since 2015 (with the help of TDC at that time- passing on my first try!) and had to re-test here in Michigan in order to achieve licensure. As you can imagine, it was frustrating to have to go through the process again but I knew TDC would get me prepped in no time. After studying for less than a month, I felt ready to take the test. I passed on my first try (again) and I will continue to recommend TDC to anyone and everyone! Thank you!

Yay I passed! So thankful for TDC and Heidi from the LCSW coaching them. You guys have been so helpful in the past couple of months since I started prepping for this exam. It is funny that I actually heard Amanda's voice when taking the exam... Nah, what I mean is things that Amanda talked about in the audio constantly popping up in my head when I was taking the exam. I highly highly recommend this program. Thank you TDC!
