LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
Price: $295.00

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 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 with 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. 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 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

TDC prepared me extremely well for the exam. It taught me how to think about the questions and break them down in order to find the correct answer. All the information you need to know is provided. I learned so much and would definitely recommend the program to anyone preparing for the clinical exam!

Thank you TDC! I had a lot of test anxiety leading up to the exam and felt very intimidated by DSM and Macro questions. This program broke down all of the information you need to know and was very manageable to use while working full time leading up to the exam. I passed on my first attempt! I also feel like I learned a lot in the process, and not just for the exam! I would highly recommend this program.

I used TDC with the LCSW test prep app. The combination of the two enhanced my knowledge for the exam. What I loved about TDC were the audio lectures. I used them on my morning walks and It covered many of the topics that were on the exam. Thank you TDC !

I passed my LCSW exam on my first attempt! I would highly recommend the TDC to others pursing there licensure. I entered into my exam feeling confident and truly ready. I repeated the study material twice which helped increase my overall confidence and knowledge. I truly appreciate having access to diverse study material including practice tests, audio rationales, and written rationales. Thank you TDC for producing an amazing study program!

I was looking for a study site that would give me the tools I needed. The one I had purchased last year just seemed like it was geared more for someone who was studying for psychology. I was so happy when I purchased your program and saw how it is set up and how interactive it is. I am a very audio visual learner and you cover all of the learning styles in your program.

Absolutely worth every penny! I felt like I learned so much and was not overwhelmed. Just took my exam this morning and passed!!

TDC really prepared me for the exam. I literally felt like I had them with me taking the exam. The pointers to get my mind focused and prepared was helpful as well. The questions and mock exams were very similar to the real test. I took the test 2 times prior and failed by 2 points, but this time around I used TDC and it was so worth it.

All I did was TDC and felt I overstudied somewhat. Glad to have the program, it covered everything and helped me get organized.

Back in March 2020 I took the LCSW and failed. I was devastated since I had purchased an expensive exam prep and spent countless hours prepping. The amount of material was overwhelming. A colleague recommended The Development Center. I purchased the LCSW program and studied intensely for a week (which I know isn’t recommended). I walked into the testing center June 26th 2020 with confidence and determination. I successfully passed my LCSW on my second attempt. I credit my success to this program. I do not believe I would have passed had I not purchased this exam prep. The study material is easy to follow and does not have unnecessary topics. Thanks to everyone who helped put this program together! I am excited to start the next chapter of my life!

I would just like to thank TDC for an absolutely phenomenal study course.

I graduated last December from Barry University. A friend told me about this program. It is an excellent program to study for the LCSW exam. I PASS the exam from the first try. Thank you!!!

Loved TDC. I passed the LCSW on my first try with 16 questions to spare. My scores on the mock exams 78/84 predicted my performance on the real test!! Listen to all the audio recordings !

TDC was an excellent course that prepared me for exam day. TDC thoroughly goes over topics related to the exam and helps you feel confident in the wording of test questions. I felt calm and well prepared on exam day, thank you so much!

I highly recommend this course!

On my unofficial score sheet I was required to get 103 questions, and I passed with 130!

I PASSED!!!! Thank you for this amazing study system! Thanks to TDC, I walked into my exam with confidence and prepared to tackle each question. I will absolutely share my experience with others and always recommend TDC!

The TDC system was so logical; it took me step-by-step through the study process. The fact that it had me start off by creating a schedule for myself was extremely important so it gave me something to be accountable for; otherwise, I'm a notorious procrastinator! The tips for studying and what to do on exam day were particularly valuable!

TDC is an amazing program!!! I was so nervous to take the exam, like so many others. I studied the program for 8 weeks and really took the time to internalize the information (which I feel like was the most beneficial). I used the coaching aspect of the program too, do not be afraid to use this for any and all questions that you may have. I passed on my first try and from the minute I started the exam I knew I was prepared because the questions were so similar to this program. I did look at questions from the ASWB pocket prep (It just made my anxiety worse and you REALLY don't need it). Go through the course at least twice, I went through it three times just to be cautious, but again really taking the time to internalize the information. Don't be afraid of the test, people told me it was horrible and hard, I did not feel that way after using TDC to prep. Happy studying!!

TDC was an excellent study program for my LCSW! I enjoyed the various ways it offers studying, i.e. lectures, quick study sheets, quizzes, mock tests and 2 practice tests. I felt well equipped for my LCSW exam and I PASSES 1st time!!!!!

This helped me to think of the questions and how to answer them.
