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.

Course Reviews

I cannot recommend this program enough. I am a FT social worker & mom- this program makes it so I am able to only study what I actually need to know. There were so many emotions that come with studying & prepping but by the time I got through a few exam questions I was surprised at how this program truly nails what it is you need to know & how you should approach it. I passed the first time & I am ecstatic! Worth every penny

Therapist Development Center is the place to go if you are nervous about passing your exam. My masters was not in interpersonal practice so I was missing a lot of material that would have been covered for this exam. Texas also doesn't allow you to take the exam until all supervision hours have been completed and it has been almost 6 years since I graduated wuth my masters degree. I was very nervous and the therapist development center allowed me to go into the exam with confidence. If you are worried about the price just know it is worth it!! I would recommend Therapist Development Center to everyone!

Thank you so much for your excellent course! I passed the first time. Needed 102 to pass and scored 108.
It was hard!!! I never could have done it without TDC.

I am an awful test taker and was so nervous for this test. After researching online I decided to purchase the course. I don't think I would have been able to pass without this course! I needed 103 to pass and I got 123! You really need to know how to think about the test rather than all the memorization. There were some memorization stuff on the actual test but majority was application. You can memorize every medication, every stage of development, everything.... but if you don't know how to answer the question you can fail! Thank you so much for Yirley answering my questions!!

Your audio lectures were the best. I’m an audio person and it really helped me prepare because I didn’t have much time to read being a mom of 3 and working full time.

I passed my LCSW clinical exam at 35 weeks pregnant, not running on all cylinders, experiencing pregnancy insomnia all due to the The Therapist Development Center study guide. It equipped me to pass even in less than ideal situation. Trust the plan. You will pass!

Great study prep program finally understood what I missed when took the LCSW exam the first time.

3 of my colleagues were also studying for the LCSWC and we all are using/used TDC. While there were some questions on the actual exam that I had no idea on, TDC gave me the confidence to know how to properly break down the question so I could get down to at least my top two choices. TDC helped me lift a huge weight off my shoulders and I'm glad I never have to take another exam again!

After taking and failing the clinical exam 3 times, I needed major help. After purchasing and completing the TDC program, I was confident and passed the exam with ease!! Great info, great tips!

This was my 4th time taking the test, and second time using TDC. This time I just listened to the material more diligently, and reviewed material repeatedly that I felt stuck on. I listened all the time even if it was a topic I thought I knew well. I re-listened until I could discuss the topic as if I were giving the talk myself. I coordinated with the documents. It was a good source of material for both written, and audio. I recommend TDC highly - thank you. I PASSED!!

This system fit my learning style perfectly. The combination of audio lectures and the PDF print-outs where I could write my own notes is exactly how I learn best. I scored a 128 on the full mock exam, and then scored a 125 on the official LSCSW exam. I found it interesting that my scores for the TDC mock exam and the real exam were so close. I highly recommend this study guide to people who understand their learning style and would benefit from this.

Thank you so much TDC Team for your study guide for the LCSW exam! It truly helped me not only to pass the exam but to become a better provider. I reviewed the guide twice and I can say the most helpful thing was how it teaches you to think about the exam, how to manage anxiety as well as the importance of not only studying but enjoying life still during this time. Also I totally was hearing Amanda's voice in the exam the entire time (what would Amanda do? How would she think about this? Thank you thank you !

Amanda, last night I took and passed my LCSW exam (second attempt). I want to thank you and your team for your guidance and instruction. Your staff has always been prompt in responding to my questions and extremely helpful. Amanda, I took your "Final Review" sheet with me and read the last line just before going in to take the exam... "NOW GO PASS!" I'm convinced, that mindset made the difference!! Thanks again... onward!!

Passed on my first try!
I couldn't have passed if it wasn't for the TDC and the awesome coaches that helped me along the way.

I pushed up my test date and was able to cram 2 weeks of straight studying.

You can do it!

I passed my LCSW test on June 16, 2021 on my first try! I started to study in late February while waiting to have my hours approved. I followed the program as directed and completed it twice. TDC does a great job with organizing the study materials. The program was easy to follow and I did not feel overwhelmed. On the drive to the test site (hour and a half) I listened to the audio on 50 topics, DSM and final pep talk. I took a break at the 85 question mark to regroup. Ensure that you obtain all the rules from the testing site. Even though I was provided a locker I was not allowed to eat a snack. They allowed me to take a zip lock bag with cough drops. Thank you TDC for an amazing program.

When I started thinking about studying for the LICSW Clinical Exam, I felt overwhelmed by figuring out what I would actually need to study, and making a study plan. My friend sent me a 200 page PDF of possible topics to read through. I knew that this wouldn't be effective for me. The biggest selling point for me with TDC is that it gives you a study plan, and you know that you are not wasting your time studying topics that won't be tested. It made me feel so much more in control of my study prep for this exam, and I walked into the exam with a level of confidence I haven't experienced before in a testing setting. I passed on my first try with flying colors. I would recommend TDC to anyone taking a social work exam.

This program was wonderful and truly helped me feel prepared for the exam. I appreciated being able to listen to the lectures over and over and had Amanda’s voice in my head on test day!

Great program, as someone with ADHD that struggles with where to start, this course was super helpful in taking the stress of "how to study" off my plate. Thank you ladies!

Covers a wide variety of topics that are applicable to the exam and provides helpful self-care advise for prepping for the exam as well as taking care of yourself and your brain on exam day. Especially helpful if you have limited working experience in a mental health setting.

I would have never thought that a bunch of audio recordings could get me through an exam and have me really understand the material! The program has been amazing guiding me through every step! The night before my exam I went through my notes and the 50 topics and I knew that I had everything covered to pass the exam!
