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 is the best test prep out there. I was able to not only pass but actually excel on the LCSW exam and I am will definitely take what I learned into my clinical practice!

The Therapist Development Center is a wonderful program. I passed the exam on my first attempt. I work fulltime and have a young child. The structured style of their program helped me tremendously with staying on track to prepare. The variety of formats provided to learn (including audio, quick studies, etc) are very helpful. Prior to the exam I felt prepared and more importantly during the exam I felt confident.

I feel like you can study forever for these kinds of exams and never feel fully prepared, but TDC helped me feel confident leading up to and taking the exam! I followed the study plan as outlined and found the many quizzes and practice exams to be the most helpful in preparing for the test. When I found myself stuck during the actual exam, I fell back on the strategies I had already been practicing with TDC. So grateful to have had this course, and for the ease of accessing it! Because everything was digital, it made it so easy to use and review while caring for my newborn! :)

This program was truly phenomenal. The learning style, the pace, the quick studies, the additional full mock- all incredible. This program was essential in helping me pass the ASWB LCSW exam on my second round. I would highly recommend this study program to anyone who would like that extra edge in helping them prepare for the exam. I'm confident that if I would've used this program on my first attempt, there would not have been a second attempt. Thank you everyone at TDC!

I graduated with my MSW about a year and a half ago. When I graduated I was pregnant and by the time I could take the LCSW I felt as though I was too far along in my pregnancy to sit for a 4 hour test. Once I had my daughter I had every plan to take the exam during my maternity leave but life happened and that did not happen. Then COVID-19 happened and my exam was pushed to June 2020. While teleworking and still being present with my family this program helped me set a schedule and carve out specific time to study leading up to my exam. If I had not used TDC I am not confident that I would have passed my LCSW exam. What's even better is that this program got me back into school mode and studying. I also surpassed my expectations and the number that is needed to pass this exam. I am so thankful for the TDC study program as I feel it helped me prepare to pass the LCSW exam on my first try. Many thanks TDC team & happy studying to all!

Thanks for the study help. I felt I gained as much from this as I did from my schooling!

TDC is an awesome program as it concises the study content in a way that makes it less overwhelming with so much material to cover. I loved the variety in instruction methods. Having the ability to listen to audio on the way to work or look at quick studies on the go really helped me as I am a single mom with two jobs. I’d say the most helpful we’re the mock exams as they provided me strategy and I learned to answer questions in the way in which the ASWB expects. Overall, I’d recommend this program to everyone.

I passed! i'm thrilled. Social work is actually my third career after architecture and yoga instruction, but its the first career that I've actually carried all the way through licensure. For this reason and for the obvious professional benefits, passing this test meant a lot to me. It's funny to read how many people hear Amanda's voice talking them through the questions. I had the same experience! I bought the program on 6/1/20 and took the exam today, 6/22/20. I can't thank TDC enough for giving me the tools to pass this exam with confidence. (There might have been some heightened nerves!) But nevertheless, I couldn't recommend the program more.

TDC did an awesome job of providing well rounded information for this exam. They did well to prepare me on how to take the exam and help me feel fully prepared.

The systematic tools in the program assisted me to be methodical in how to prepare for the exam. I appreciated the test coach accessibility and encouragement during the added stress of COVID-19. I started hearing the instructors in my head when taking the mock exams and then the actual exam. I am so grateful for this program reminding me that I got the skills and the test is not a reflection of my ability to be an LCSW.

I took the exam last year missed it by some took it today almost a year later and scored 105 on the test and I needed 102 so it really helped me to review the exam prep twice and really look at patterns. Thank you Heidi and Amanda

I primarily used TDC to study for the ASWB Clinical Exam. After finishing the program once, I listened to the audio content while driving and working out. I passed the exam on my first try with 26 questions more than was required.

TDC material really helped me focus on the test stratergies that were needed. By far the best study material and well worth the money.

Wonderful study guide! Thank you so much! I was beginning to become hopeless about the exam, but I persisted, and with the great help, guidance, and support of TDC I was a lot more confident in passing.

I am a very anxious test taker and had built up a lot of anxiety about taking the test. I was studying independently using another program, but was not able to stay on-track without structure. This program provided the structure of a plan and made me feel confident in my knowledge of the material. I loved that you could listen to lectures and the mock exams were incredibly helpful.

Where do I start! Thank you so much TDC for helping me pass my LCSW exam on my first attempt. COVID threw me for a loop but with the course extension, I was able to continue studying for an additional 3 months after my original test date was postponed. The test is very comparable to the mock exams. I used almost the 4 full hours and took a break at question 85 just as you recommended. I feel the test was made up of 25% easy questions everyone should know, 25 % hard questions (where all your test taking strategies come into play), and 50% in between questions. TDC helped me pass my test and learn so much along the way. I have already encouraged some of my friends/coworkers to check you guys out! Thank you again!

I passed on my first try, thanks to TDC. I study diligently the month prior to my test. I was incredibly nervous to take the test but I followed the curriculum TDC provided. I highly recommend TDC and would not have passed if I did not use TDC. It is expensive but worth it. It was such an incredible feeling seeing, “Passed,” on the screen at the test site. Thank you TDC and Amanda!

I actually completed my MSW with no intention to become licensed; I'm more macro-focused. However, I moved to a state in which it's practically impossible to get a job of any kind in the helping professions without licensure. Seven years after graduating with my MSW (and having not been super rigorous in my clinical studies due to my macro focus), I passed the LCSW with room to spare. I had my worries and doubts, but I passed with a comfortable margin to spare.

I would not have passed this exam without TDC. I had taken months to read through a well known authors study book, took practice exams, and made flash cards. I felt like I wasn’t learning the way to actually tackle the exam and how to figure out the right answer. This study program Filled in gaps of knowledge that my supervisor missed during supervision hours. I will recommend TDC to any social worker to assist them in passing the exam. My level of confidence was so much higher when I went into my test!
