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

I was nervous and worried about passing my clinical exams after some time had passed since my master's level test and my msw. This assuaged my fears and I passed on the first try! I highly recommend this program and it is worth every penny.

I was super anxious. I rescheduled the test 4 times because of my anxiety. But I committed to study for a consistent month right before the exam. I just pushed through and I felt over prepared for the exam, dare I say it was easy! Thanks TDC! I totally was able to attack the test!

Thank you TDC! It is such a relief to say that I’ve passed my LCSW exam. I learned so much from the program and would highly recommend it to others.

I passed!! I was so nervous going into my test and even during but I applied strategies learned through TDC and took the advice from the last lecture and did well on my exam. TDC is so worth it. And Heidi was a life saver with calming my anxiety while studying.

I passed on my first attempt thanks to TDC!! I cannot express enough my gratitude. TDC is the the program I HIGHLY recommend. It definitely helped with managing my anxiety and provides a breakdown on how to study. Thank you again TDC!!!!!

The audio lectures made it easy for me to "study" on my commute to work. It was helpful for me to be able to listen to lectures multiple times to help me remember not just facts/info, but to remember the logic and critical thinking techniques I should employ during the exam. I struggled a lot with my decision to NOT use other study materials (especially acronym tools) because other people use them a lot, but I remember why those may not always be the best way to answer based on a lecture in the series. So glad I DIDN'T use them! I feel that the practice exams were more difficult and tested a broader range of material than the actual exam so I think I was well prepared. I didn't pass by much, but I passed!

TDC really made the content manageable. Just so much information to process, and understand. Having this program really helped me with getting to know concepts, and not get so wrapped up in every little detail. I went through the course twice. The first time I took about a month, and the second time I finished in a week. Definitely helpful doing it again. I passed the exam today.

I am SOOOO happy!!! TDC helped me PASS with CONFIDENCE!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you SO much TDC ! So worth the investment. YAYAYAY

TDC did an excellent job preparing me for the LCSW exam! i highly recommend the program!

TDC was so easy to follow and the program is setup perfectly. I used the 5 week study session. I really enjoyed learning through TDC. I previously failed the Clinical exam and this was my second time taking the exam. I get completely prepared during the exam and imagined Amanda in my head throughout the exam.

Enjoyed the program and it prepared me well.

The TDC program prepared me well for my LCSW exam. I appreciated that the nature of the questions on the practice quizzes/tests were very similar to the ones on the actual exam. I felt well prepared for recall-based questions and the analytical questions (which made up most of the exam). I am very happy I invested in this program!!!

This course is perfectly designed for a terrible test taker like myself. I felt confident going into the test after doing well on my practice tests and reviewing the information for several weeks. I was always nervous to take this test and never wanted to, but it recently became a requirement of my job and so I had to bite the bullet and get it over with. It is something that has been hanging over my head for a while and I am so glad I chose to buy the program as there is no way I would have been even close to passing without it. The program taught me strategies for the test but also to believe in my answers and stop overthinking. It taught me how to think and prepare and use my own experience to really put myself in each situation and eliminate and number each question. I never thought this day would come, but I am so happy that I went for it and learned so much in the process that I can continue to use for my own career. I really feel as though I learned quite a bit of clinical material that can really impact my work with clients, rather than just determining strategies to pass. Thank you for the help and course. I am so glad to be done!

I am absolutely elated at what I accomplished today. I PASSED! This was my first attempt at taking the LCSW exam and I passed. A few years ago, I used TDC for my LMSW exam and passed on the first try as well. Please do not get discouraged and follow the program as outlined. On my my exams (full and half), my score ranged from 68 to 86 percent. I am so grateful that a program like this is exist and as a veteran, I appreciate the free program incentive. I will continue to recommend this program to any social workers I come across. This program is the best. To those of you who are taking the upcoming test...Good Luck!!

I would highly recommend this course to anyone preparing to take the ASWB exam. It provides an organized way to review all of the material covered in the test and also helps you to think through the questions in a way that this test wants you to think through them. Good pep talks too!

Passed the exam on my first attempt! (after much procrastination) If you can dedicate your time to listening, writing notes (to truly absorb the material), review quick studies, do the quizzes and practice tests, you will pass. Personally, I listened to the audios multiple times while driving, starting about 3 months before the exam. The week of my exam, I took off work and literally studied by butt off, listening to the audios, writing notes, and reviewing the quick studies and it worked! Information was covered that was tested on. I have had previous study guides, since the DSMIV, and always felt too overwhelmed to even know where to start. This program is broken down perfectly to address and review all the topics covered. THANK YOU TDC!

I purchased another company’s material for a lot more than the cost of TDC and it was overwhelming. Even my supervisor who has had her LCSW for many years agreed. I purchased multiple books that were supposed to prepare me before I had a coworker tell me about TDC. I found the program extremely helpful and Heidi very responsive whenever I reached out with the question. The material does exactly what it says in providing “everything we need and nothing we don’t/ I work long hours and studied daily on my commute and then on weekends. I highly recommend TDC. Thank you so much

Best decision I made was studying with the therapist development center! I just wish I did it the first time rather then taking the test blindly without preperstion.

Being taught how to rank questions was so helpful. i am recommending this program to all my friends and colleagues. I also found the worksheets so helpful in my study process. Thank you for all the tips and tricks!

I’m so glad I used TDC to study for the ASWB exam! I loved the quick studies, the problem-solving strategies, and the advice around self-care. It made passing the test feel attainable. I also really appreciated how quickly Heidi would get back to me when I asked for support from a coach! Thank you TDC!
