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

Great program, very organized, easy to follow.

This is an awesome exam prep study program! I really liked how there were a variety of ways to learn: listening to lectures; taking quizzes/mock exams (online and paper), and reading handouts. When I had a question, responses were quick and thorough. I highly recommend this program!

I followed everything I learned in the program and passed with a first time go!

This program is exactly what I needed to help prioritize the information/learning required to pass this test. I loved the quick studies and the Mock Exam mirrored the actual test. This program helped boost my confidence and helped me to know what to expect.

I’m so happy I passed! I used all of the strategies recommended and they all were effective! I

I have MAJOR test anxiety so anticipating this exam was one of the most stressful times of my life. However these lectures, and the pep-talk made the exam seem so easy! I especially liked the pre-made schedule, which is good for those like me who both procrastinate and over-study at times. All throughout the exam, the most important phrases to remember were "Start where the client is at" & "Validate their emotions"....I honestly believe these kept me on track. Also, the tips for how to answer "first" and "most" questions was detrimental as well (like, "what would you do if they were in your office, play it out"). I feel like my exam was mostly "first" questions so this helped A LOT. I wish I had known about TDC for my LSW exam but I have already started telling everyone about TDC! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!

This was my first time taking the exam. I went through the material twice. The first time at my own pace and discretion and the second time I followed TDC plan exactly. I am so relieved to be done!

I really love that TDC encourages critical thinking with the proper application of knowledge, and takes a holistic approach to passing the exam so that it promotes incorporating studying into my life rather than putting my life on hold to study. I rate this course with 5 stars.

I think it's really difficult to integrate all social work information into an exam prep material but TDC did a great job of preparing me for the LCSW exam. TDC offers extra tips that go beyond recall and critical thinking- they offer tips for self-care, scheduling study times, snacking/eating which showed me that they really care about the well-being of their consumers. I integrated the study material and advice and passed on my first attempt. Thank you TDC!

Through out the study process I felt like I wasn't getting enough information, however during the test I felt like the rational and the method used to think through the questions is what really mattered.

Reviewed the TDC materials completely through 2x and felt quite prepared before the exam. Definitely nervous and anxious, but I spent a lot of time studying and tried to have faith in the TDC system to ensure that I was prepared. Sitting with uncertainty during the exam was the hardest part for me. On almost all questions, I was able to narrow down my answer choices confidently to 2 options. That's when it was challenging and where the reasoning came in. I "marked" 70 questions for review. I finished with about 30 mins left to go through the marked questions, started changing a few and then stopped myself cause I wasn't having any 'aha' moments. Submitted and PASSED! So thankful to TDC and so glad my hard work and effort paid off. Thanks to TDC for the wonderful, concise and targeted study program- so appreciative!!!

This course gave me the confidence and the tools to pass the exam on the FIRST try! It was worth every cent! Thank you SO much!!

This program is awesome. I thank God for giving you the idea of creating this program, it is absolutely fantastic. You put a lot of work into this and it is paying off. Thanks a bunch.

I would give this course a 4/5 in stars because it is brilliant in how well it prepares you for the exam. The exam covers such a range of questions and nuances that it is hard to know how you are doing while you are taking it. This course also supports you physically and psychologically to take the test. My score was well above cutoff and I still felt the struggles of processing all the information and staying cool.

The reason for not giving 5/5 stars - There are some topics and orders of operation that were tested on the mocks that were not covered in the course material. I actually learn well this way, but felt I needed more of an explanation on some of these questions, especially on Final Mock 2. Also sometimes similar questions seemed to contradict each other, requiring a really strong explanation to make sense of the different answers. I'd recommend being in close touch with coaches every time you have questions on a mock. I'd recommend the course developers put out more information in the Quick Studies that back up the test topics - including more guidelines for DV, School Social Work, Groups, and Hospital Social Work.

Overall I think this course has wonderful content, methods, and support for passing this test!! Well worth it.

I failed by one the first time, passed 26 the second time around using the Therapist Development Program. I really appreciate Heidi being patient with me as I sent her many emails( pretty sure I was experiencing some hysteria over the entire process). It's no doubt, the program is an investment and one that would have helped me pass the first time I took the test had I been aware of the Therapist Development Program. Nevertheless, I passed today and cried grown man tears. Between school and 6 VERY busy years, it all kinda sank in today as I repeatedly stared at the ASWB sheet that Indicated "PASS." I'm officially done. This program really does a great job at teaching you the information that you need to know to pass and think like an ethical practitioner. I had some moments of skepticism and doubt- but just drink the juice and apply yourself as much as you can. Money well spent!

The TDC program helped alleviate some of my anxiety , which was a huge road block for me to be able to retain information and pass the exam. The overwhelming feeling of such an important test was almost crippling. However, just the mere knowledge that I didn't need to study 24 hours, 7 days a week was comforting. Thank you for helping me through this licensing exam!

I had a lot of anxiety before beginning to study. I felt anxious while studying as well but with the tips I got like working out, eating well, and taking time for self care they all really helped. I thought I'm going to have to study almost every day with 2 kids and a full time job I thought it is impossible. I took 1 1/2 weeks before the test to focus and study. It was worth exhausting my vacation time. I did it! I PASSED!

Only having given myself one month to get ready for the exam, I was nervous about investing all my time and money into a single program. However, I took the ASWB clinical exam yesterday and passed easily. I cannot recommend this study program enough. The sessions are easy to listen to and learn from and all the information you need to know in one place and broken down for you. This saved me so much time and energy!

I just recently passed the ASWB Clinical Exam on Monday 6/3/2019! I would recommend TDC to anyone preparing to take the exam. I studied for about two months before taking the exam at least five days per week leading up to the exam. The mock exams helped immensely and preparing to sit at the exam for almost four hours. I strongly recommend to go through the program twice to let the information soak in as TDC suggested as well. This was my first time taking the exam and kept hearing horror stories from friends and co-workers saying how many times they've had to take the exam. TDC helps you study the correct information that will be tested and gets straight to the point. It didn't "fluff" any answers and provided enough clinical rationale each section. Honestly, I learned more from this program than my entire grad school career. It helps condense an intense amount of information into comprehensive and logical quizzes, lectures, and tests. I would not have passed the exam with the assistance of TDC. Can't thank you guys enough!

Thank you.. I think without your help I would have not passed.
