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

Awesome program.

This program was tremendously helpful for me to pass my LCSW test the first time! The structure and materials made learning the information attainable and less intimidating. Amanda and Bethany’s expertise were extremely helpful for retaining and relating the material to my own clinical experience. Their guidance was empowering and assuring that I already knew the information which decreased my anxiety immensely. I also greatly appreciate their support for military members and veterans as I am an Air Force Veteran. It cannot recommend this program enough!! Thank you so much, TDC!

I passed the LCSW Exam today! TDC is an absolutely amazing program, especially for kinesthetic learners, like myself. I went into the test feeling confident and well prepared. TDC is the only program I've used, as attempts to use others left me overwhelmed and confused. I was so equipped, that I completed the 4-hour exam in 2 hours and 56 mins! This was my 2nd attempt. The first attempt was unsuccessful due to debilitating anxiety. I took Amanda into the test with me and I'm so glad I did. Thanks TDC for developing an outstanding program and being true to your word of sticking with us until we pass and honoring veterans by making the program available at no cost. I highly recommend TDC!

I used Dawn Apgar and pocket prep first time and was shy by 4 points. Second time maybe I was a little overconfident and actually my score decreased 8 more points. On the third try, which I used TDC I increased my score by 20 points and passed the exam.

I thank God for me passing. TDC was instrumental at me realizing my goal. Thank you for such a comprehensive program

I used TDC for my CA Law & Ethics Exam and passed the first time. I knew I would come back to TDC for my LCSW Exam. This material is so intuitive and quite honestly empowering! The LCSW Exam can feel so intimidating, but after listening to all the lectures and words of encouragement from Amanda and her team I walked into the exam with my head held high. I could hear Amanda telling me "Attack the Exam." Thank you so much for developing this material, you have helped more social workers than you may know! - Kelly

I moved to CA from NYC in August 2019 to eventually assume responsibility for my grandmother's 25+ year Pasadena private psychotherapy practice. Unfortunately, she passed away unexpectedly on 12/1/19. I had already completed my supervision hours in NY, passed my CA Law & Ethics Exam and registered for my ACSW status. However, I was not prepared for the LCSW exam. I paid for another, very expensive, study program but it overwhelmed me. A new clinician at my private practice suggested the Therapist Development Center's program. I COULD NOT HAVE PASSED AT THIS POINT AND TIME WITHOUT YOU!!! The combination between audio, advice, text, quizzes, and full-length exams jump-started my studying and enabled me to focus and prepare. I studied for 2 weeks and passed! I graduated from school in 2011!! THANK YOU!

I PASSED. I truly don’t think I could have passed without this study system. This program really helps you prepare not only for the content but how to take the exam and look at the questions
Thank you TDC for helping me pass!

I am thankful that I had the opportunity to use this program to assist me in passing my Licensed Clinical Social Work exam. I enjoyed the different topics that was covered and the mock exams that helped to prepare me for the real exam. I believe if a person follows the curriculum he/she will also be successful in passing the exam.

Thank you TDC for this amazing study program. I have used other applications, taken in person classes, and have other study materials that I bought online but this program was the best one! Very structured and covers a lot of material. I was so nervous in taking the exam however, your study program help me pass. I will be recommending this study program to every social worker I know!

This is a important and rather expensive exam, and I felt it was important to go in with a one and done mentality. TDC helped me immensely. I felt the material covered was comprehensive and well balanced. I felt confident going into the test, and during the exam never felt like any one question was out of left field. I used the "Ask a Coach" tool several times, and always received quick and insightful responses. That was so incredibly helpful to me when I needed a little more explanation on something I was stuck on. I feel the program has made me a better Social Worker overall and I am so excited to add LICSW to my credentials!

"I would have never passed this test if it was not for the TDC program. I was dumbfounded to realize that despite having gone to one of the best social schools in the country, I was completely ill-prepared to take the ASWB LCSW exam. When I first looked at what was available, I appreciated how the program was divided in "segments/topics" which made it much easier to learn and digest. Being a kinesthetic learner, I appreciated being able to walk in nature and listen to the recorded lectures over and over again, which is truly the best way for me to learn. I also recorded myself the quick studies so I could listen to that as well. I deeply appreciated the quizzes, short and long mock exams, especially the long ones. I usually cannot sit for that amount of time and practicing these long exams gave me a point of reference when the real exam time came. A week prior to the exam, I got really scared that I was not going to pass the test and Heidi, as a great coach would do, stayed calm and told me what to do."
I can truly testify of the quality of this program for two reasons. I was the director of training and development for a corporation for six years and also had a business coaching. I know both worlds and I truly can say that this program teaches to the test. Taking the test was the most challenging thing I had to do and after finishing and reading the word "pass" I was in disbelief. I emailed Heidi to let her know that I had passed and she told me that she had been thinking about me all day and that truly touched my heart.
I don't know of anything else I could have done to pass this test and I am truly grateful to TDC for this program. I cannot recommend it enough if you want to pass the test."

TDC was amazing!!! I felt so confident going into the exam, the audio was SO helpful and the way the content was outlined was perfect for my style of learning

Thank you TDC for helping me pass the LCSW exam. The audios were beyond helpful in terms of me being able to listen to them in my car and while cooking dinner. I found the practice tests and quizzes very useful. By utilizing them to constantly practice, I was able to learn how the test wants you to think and answer the questions. This was my second attempt in taking this exam and with this program my score was raised by 15 points. Thank you TDC!

I’m the biggest procrastinator and delayed all my studying to the last minute. I knew I would need a program that would help me structure my studying. I found TDC easy to follow. I would casually listen to the recordings while driving. I didn’t officially start studying until a week before my exam. I was able to complete the whole program in one week and felt prepared for my exam. All my coworkers have used TDC and passed. Now, I can proudly say that I passed on my first try!!! Thank you!!!!!

OMG, I Passed after failing the first time I looked for a program that would help me pass! This program was amazing! It was very simple and easy to follow. I highly recommend it! Thank you so much, I am an LCSW!!!!!!

I am forever grateful to the TDC for supporting me in passing my LCSW exam. I used them previously to prepare for my law and ethics exam in 2017 and successfully passed. Knowing the clinical test was longer and more intense, I enlisted the support of one of the TDC coaches, Heidi Tobe and she was incredibly helpful. She was able to help me understand rationales, provided me with key tips and strategies and was always available for additional support if needed. I could not have passed my exam without the TDC and their team. Thank you!!! -Sayda Vanessa Clark, LCSW

I first started using Therapist Development Center when I initially did the Masters Level Exam. I had previously failed that exam 2 times and after the second time failing, I was extremely frustrated and felt defeated. I looked around everywhere for something that would give me the tools to pass. And thats when I found the Therapist Development Center online. I was nervous since it was a bit expensive and I had no idea what the program would offer. I completed the program, felt more confident than ever- and I passed that exam by 20 points!
Fast forward a couple years, I then needed to take the Clinical Level Exam. I bought the study guide from Therapist Development Center immediately, without hesitation. I bought the study guide middle of December and just passed my test on February 13th! I would NOT have passed this exam without this study guide.
If you are looking for a way to pass this exam, look no further. It is worth EVERY SINGLE penny! Thank you Therapist Development Center- I DID IT!

I am beyond excited that I passed my exam on the first attempt!! TDC helped me feel prepared and confident going into the exam. I really loved listening to the audio lectures and felt the mock exams helped me have the right mindset to tackle the reasoning questions! So thankful for this program!!

Thank you for helping me pass the LCSW. I am feeling so relieved. Going through your program was great for me because I am an auditory learner. It also provided the structure I needed to stay on track and keep my confidence up. Thank you TDC!
