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 am SO GRATEFUL for this program! I truly don’t think I would’ve passed this exam without this preparation. I always, always have test anxiety and this was no different, but this program really makes you think about how to answer the questions and reason to the right answer rather than just pure knowledge and recall! I would 100% recommend this to anyone taking the exam. The price is worth it and the audio study materials were my personal favorite!

I am still numb and could barely sleep last night, because finally after 6 ATTEMPTS, thanks to TDC and its amazing coaches and content, I have PASSED the LCSW exam!!! I am so very grateful for this study program, as I believe it is exactly what I needed to take me across the finish line. I was close each time but missing something, but did not know I decided to give TDC a try. Wish I had done it 3 tries ago, but all I can say to those reading this is: Purchase the program and follow it exactly as they tell you. Do it twice through and do not doubt yourself, you too, will PASS!! ( I also took advantage of the wonderful blog:)) All those extra questions! I could not be more thrilled, THANK YOU, AMANDA, BETHANY, HEIDI, and LINDSAY for being there for me when I needed you.May your business be blessed abundantly. Eileen O'Toole, LCSW

I PASSED!!! I previously used another study program and failed the exam the first time I took it. My job requires licensure so I knew I needed to pass the 2nd time and decided to use TDC due to all the great reviews. I truly believe I would not have been able to pass the exam without this study program. Amanda and her team do a great job explaining rationales in depth and how to reason through the questions you will see on the exam. The mock exams are similar to the actual exam and definitely prepare you for the real thing. Also shout out to my coach Heidi for always getting back to me right away and giving me that last bit of confidence I needed! My score increased by 21 points compared to the first time I took the exam so THANK YOU TDC!

Studied for three months, planned my studies, and followed all the instructions. Went into the exam and was confident. As I started answering questions, I knew I studied right and was well prepared with TDC.

I am currently 56 years old. I first obtained my BSW at 21, my MSW at 34. I had not worked in the social work field for ten years when at age 51 I went back to work. I knew I needed help to obtain my License. Therapist development assisted me in obtaining my LMSW; I passed the first time. I decided to continue with my LCSW and finally completed my supervision hours last year. I knew with out a doubt, I would use therapist development study materials again. Studying was more difficult this time, juggling full time work, other activities and stressors. However it paid off today. Passed the first time!! Thanks Amanda and Heidi!! Not only did I pass the test, I experienced personal and professional growth taking this course. Several times today I asked, "What would Amanda do?" Thanks for everything. Vicki Taylor, Alaska

I used a combination of TDC and the ASWB mock tests. TDC was very comprehensive. Totally worth the money.

Needed 98 to pass scored 120

Thank you so much, TDC!!! I did everything in the study program as directed/instructed (except daily exercise - oops) and it paid off. The questions I had while I studied were answered by your coaches quickly and clearly. I felt more confident going into this test than I have in any other test in my life. In the end, the most helpful strategy for me was bringing you into the test with me. I read the questions with Amanda's voice in my head and reasoned my way through each question - slowly, deliberately and word by word. I am bursting with relief and gratitude. I have already recommended your program to colleagues and I will continue to sing your praises to anyone who will listen! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I passed with a 125. Thank you!

Hi Everyone,
I used Therapist Development to pass my test. I really paid attention to the rationale and actually had time to do the program twice. TDC really helped me stay organized and understand WHY a question was right. I really enjoyed the lectures, especially the" DSM- Whats the Difference?" It was so much fun to listen to. Thank you so much. Passing this test truly opened so many more doors for me! I feel so relieved and proud. I am recommending this program to every social worker I know! :) THANK YOU!!

I am so excited to annouce I passed my LCSW exam on my first try! What I loved the most was the way the information was broken down into a digestible manner. I loved being able to listen to the audio as it was extremely helpful with my long commute each day. I felt the final mock exams were exceptionally critical in preparing myself not only for the actual exam in terms of content but also getting myself into the mindset of sitting for that time frame. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to pass the exam with confidence. The program not only helped me pass the exam but will also shape my critical thinking abilities in becoming a great therapist.

I will definitely be recommending TDC to others! I successfully passed Law & Ethics with TDM, and just became an LCSW with the help of TDM (my first time taking the exam)! The study material was broken down so easily, and the breakdown of how to study was helpful (5wks or 8)! I made flashcards, and did the quizzes and practice tests several times throughout the span of my studying. I especially loved all of the helpful tips for test day! Thanks so much!!!! Truly grateful for TDM!

I am very pleased with the results I've obtained by using your study system. Passed the first time!

So glad I went with this program! I was feeling so overwhelmed at the volume of what needed to be studied for the exam. TDC broke it down and organized it in a way that made it feel much more manageable. TDC did a great job of covering the content and teaching the test taking skills needed to be able to reason through the questions on the exam. Will definitely be recommending to anyone getting ready to start studying for the clinical exam!

I previously took the exam twice. The first time I failed by three and the second time I failed by one. I didn’t take the time to study and only bought the practice exam once. I started using TDC several weeks ago and followed the program step-by-step. I felt that TDC prepared me for answering all the questions, It really helped me to understand how to break down the questions. I passed this time; I needed 103 and I scored 120. I loved TDC!

This was by far the best investment for passing the lcsw exam. I will recommend this to anyone asking me what i did to pass. I only used this program and I felt so confident taking the exam and ultimately passed! Before this I watched a lot of YouTube videos and focused a lot on the SFAREAFI acronym which a lot of people swore by. I think this program really helped me be a competent social worker and not just know how to "take the exam". Even the ASWB practice books on Amazon was not worth the money. This program was worth every penny and really broke down things to better understand. Thank you so much!

I found it much simpler and to the point.
I was able to follow the program at my own pace after being out of school for so many years.
I would recommend this program to everyone.
Thanks to the coaches who encourage me to keep going.
Agnes Timberger, LCSW

TDC was very easy to learn and helped me pass. I reviewed the materials 3 times and felt confident going into the exam. I used the techniques Amanda suggested and they worked!!! I tried another study program and did not help me. I highly recommend TDC. Thank you for helping me pass!

I am currently working two jobs and needed a study aid that would be comprehensive and to the point. TDC was perfect! I passed after one try!

OMG, I have told so many people about TDC already! I took the exam twice and failed then heard about TDC. I ordered the material and started the process but life kept getting in the way and I would start and stop. TDC was gracious to extend the course for me. One of the nuggets I learned was the best defense on What to do NEXT and BEST...really helped a lot on this exam.
