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

Yes I like to say that I followed it to the "T". i realized how much I was misinformed before with a different program. I am just so thankful to Heidi for her coaching and continuous and prompt support. I strongly feel that this program is a SMART program, is easy, stress free and organized, well design to pass the ASWB exam.
Thank you so much!!! Mil Gracias !!

So grateful for this program. I felt supported by the LCSW coach and the many ways that the program reinforces the learning materiel. I highly recommend the TDC program!

TDC did such a great job of preparing me for the ASWB Clinical exam! I went into the exam so confident. It honestly was such a breeze only because of the amazing materials provided by TDC. I would 100% recommend using this course.

I am a 51 year old mom of three. I have wanted to get my MSW since I was in my 20's, but life, kids, family and finances kind of overtook that dream. I finally bit the bullet and started an online MSW program in Jan of 2015. I graduated last April of 2018 and now I can say that I have passed the ASWB Clinical Exam! If I can do it, anyone can do it! I am so relieved to have this test behind me. I almost started crying when I was done with the little survey at the end of the test and clicked the next button and I read the word PASS!!! I was shaking so bad! Your program is extremely good! Not only did it prepare me for this exam, it has consolidated what I learned while pursuing my degree and has helped me focus. It's almost like a post graduate refresher course. I didn't use any other programs and I personally wouldn't recommend it. I think it muddies the waters too much.
I do feel slightly irritated with myself that I didn't pass by a higher number, but I am forever grateful that I passed! That's just me. Always second guessing myself. Thank you for this program! It was worth every penny. And thank you for agreeing to split my initial payment. You have been very helpful. I have already recommended the program to two of my colleagues.

I passed the LCSW test yesterday in Virginia. I am so thankful for being directed to TDC - this program gave me the structure needed to pass the exam. Like many social workers, I work fulltime and have a part time job - I am an elder abuse investigator and on the side, supervise court ordered parents with their kids. I started to study in mid October, but got serious in February when I set the exam date for May. I am glad that I gave myself the early start because I found that I was tired after work and often would not have any time to study until the weekend.

I went through the test anxiety/preparing for the test and first mock exam, which I failed. I repeatedly listened to the review clips. Sometimes I listened while playing video games or in the car.

I rallied a few of my coworkers who were also studying by doing 15 minute study breaks with questions from We did the questions - usually 2-3x a week beginning in January.

I mainly stuck to the timeframe that TDC developed and made flash cards from their study materials. I kept a set of cards in my bag and another set in the bathroom to periodically look at.

In the end, I did the quizzes and ran out of time to do the last two mock exams. Part of me saved the mocks in case I failed the test. The last exam I did while watching Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones.

I consistently averaged in the mid 70s and that was the score that I received.

I work in an agency and have been referring my coworkers to TDC. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to have access to your program. Thank you for all of your hard work.

Excellent prep! I felt confident going in and was excited to see that my version of the test matched well with the mock exams! Thank you so much for helping me pass!

I learned every subject needed to pass the test. The audios, emotional support and accountability this program provides is unheard of and exactly what I needed to pass. Thank you so much.

Thank You TDC. Without this study guide I would not have even known where to begin. I passed on my 2nd attempt. I used the program for my first attempt as well, but didn't have enough time to get through the full program. I was 9 months pregnant, had a two year old at home and had to test before the baby came.

The second time through the program I really felt a lot of "ah-hah" moments and everything started to click. The majority of the test is really understanding the question and WHAT IT IS ASKING. This program was so thorough in breaking down every single question, looking for key words, putting things in order, or eliminating answers. If I am able to get through this program with two kids two and under at home then I feel anyone can do it. Im not sure if I would have even attempted to test if a program like this was not available. This program gave me HOPE. Thank You.

TDC was the only study system I trusted enough to use when studying for the ASWB Exam. TDC does a great job with covering the important topics that were covered on the exam. The many practice tests and mock exams, along with the rationales, were extremely helpful and prepared me for the types of questions that were asked on the exam. I love TDC and would recommend it to anyone searching for the ultimate study program!


This program was amazing. It was exactly what I needed to boost my confidence. I loved that the program broke the information down to what I needed to learn and not overwhelm me with so much information. The audio was very helpful. During the test I could hear the audio playing in my head on how to break down the questions and tell myself, I know I will do all this with the client but what will I do first. I could hear you ladies in my head, The quick studies and worksheet were also very helpful. Thank you for this program. I highly recommend it. I'm so excited to have passed the test finally.

I passed the exam with one attempt. Trust the process, go through the material twice, & believe in yourself!

I love the structure of TDC. I didn’t know where to start or how to study and with this program it has been able to help me start. I love that this program teaches you how to understand the content and not memorizing an acronym. This program also allows you to take it with you anywhere so I was able to study every chance I could.

I purchased this course and the ASWB clinical study guide. The information in this course far outweighed the latter. The audio clips made the material digestible and related them to real world scenarios which helped so much with retention and understanding. I have already recommended this program to 2 people.

I have learned so much with this program on how to be a competent social worker, thanks so much!!

I felt completely prepared with TDC study guide. I went in feeling confident and passed! Thank you to TDC for all the tips and the extension as well!! You guys are the best!!

I don't know what I would have done without this program. I used a workbook to study for the LMSW and did not feel that it adequately prepared me. When I sat down and looked through the workbook to start prepping for the LCSW, I felt super overwhelmed and unsure where to start. A friend recommended this program to me and I was skeptical at first, mostly because of the cost. Best money I've spent and would do it again in a heartbeat. This program provided me with structure, kept me on track, and taught me to think like the test. Heidi (one of the coaches) went above and beyond when it came to responding to my questions and offering tips and suggestions. I would highly recommend this program!

In hindsight, my first two attempts were not so much about the process. Also, my tests were filled with scenarios outside my clinical experience. I followed the program again for the third time, and recognized I knew most of the the content but I needed to think differently. This is largely a “reading”exam with nuances in wording. Knowing the process and of course our code of ethics is paramount. I’m an “older” student but not above learning new ways of thinking. Thank you thank you thank you for supporting veterans and my effort to passing the LCSW! God bless you!

Thanks for your help and a wonderfully designed training program. I passed the ASWB exam on 5/3/2019 with a sense of confidence. This is the first time I’ve ever felt so comfortable while taking an exam! Thank you, TDC!

I bought this program once I heard about it and researched it as soon as the board approved me to register for the exam. I was very nervous as I have really bad test anxiety and was afraid that the anxiety would get the best of me, but on the day of the exam I prayed and prayed to have no anxiety and to pass and I passed! I bought the study program and studied here and there for two months, I did not use any other material except for the ASWB practice test. It feels surreal knowing that I passed and boy was pressing that complete button one of the most nerve-wrecking thing to do. I was actually fasting so I did not have a wholesome meal in the morning or a fruit before the exam, but I passed on the first try and I would recommend this program to everyone taking the exam, thank you TDC!
