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

TDC is legit! I followed the recommendations and study guides and passed on my first attempt! Thank you very much!!!

I cannot recommend this program enough! I honestly do not believe I would have passed this test without TDC. It is a wonderful comprehensive program that provides the framework for you to pass the exam. The lectures and numerous practice tests were wonderful and I enjoyed being able to listen to the lectures in my car or when I was working out. I HIGHLY recommend this program, you will not regret it!

I decided to use TDC after I was studying (attempting to study) for about a month and a half and nothing was sticking. I enjoyed all the audio, quizzes and mock exams because reading a book just did not work for me. I passed on May 29, 2019 in Texas and I can't be more excited.

I passed on my first attempt, thanks to TDC. I had some hiccups with scheduling my exam and TDC gave me 2 extensions with no questions asked. The material was well organized and exactly what I needed to pass. I didn't use any other study programs and did not study anything outside of the TDC program with the exception of taking the ASWB practice exam. Going through the exam, I was stressed. I slept about 3 hours the night before and my energy was low and anxiety was high. But I approached each question just as TDC advised, and as a result, I was successful. Thank you TDC.

I was very nervous about this exam as, despite many years of practice experience, I was not confident about passing. TDC gave me the confidence to aggressively pass the exam my 1st try!!! Thank you so much! Well worth the investment.

Thanks to TDC I passed my LCSW exam on the first try ! I felt extremely well prepared and confident throughout the exam. I even finished early !! TDC really teaches you how to think for the exam. This program is very well organized and the coaches are extremely helpful! Thank you so much TDC !!!

This program was fantastic. I felt thoroughly prepared and confident going into the exam. A reasoning-based exam requires you to think about the scenario they present as a whole. I remember practicing skills, such as "If all the answers make sense, put them in order. What would I do FIRST?", which proved extremely helpful throughout the exam. I felt confident with all the recall questions as well. This program does a great job exposing you to all the information you will need to know to feel prepared to tackle this endeavor. Greatly recommend.

I first took (and passed) my LCSW in 1997 as I graduated from Boston College Graduate School of Social Work. Once I had my children I let my license lapse as I was a stay at home mom. Just recently decided to try again! Therapist Development Center gave someone who had been out of the game 20 years direction, structure and confidence! I highly recommend TDC to anyone who has been unsure, lacks confidence or direction in how to study. Thank you!

Thanks so much for the help and guidance throughout the study process!!

I have struggled with severe test anxiety throughout my life. I ordered TDC and as I worked my way through the course work I felt more at ease. The lecture on how to prepare the few days before taking the exam were very helpful. I followed the suggestions laid out by TDC and passed the exam on my first try! I would recommend this course to anyone, but especially those with testing anxiety!!

First of all, I would like to thank TDC's staff for all of their support. I used TDC for both my Law & Ethics and Clinical LCSW exams. I passed both of those exams on my 2nd try. The study materials were very helpful and I felt mostly prepared. What helped me most was listening to Amanda instruct on how to think about the questions/approach the questions. This really helped me develop better critical thinking during the exam because there were a lot of questions that were "different" from the study material, however I was able to be successful using the tools TDC provided. Every time I contacted TDC, a staff member responded very quickly and answered my questions thoroughly. I would definitely recommend TDC to anyone needed to study for their exams. Great training program. Thank you.

After failing the clinical exam the first time by 15 points, I was reluctant to test again. TDC helped take away the test fright and build confidence in knowing the material. I struggled passing the practice exams and questions on so many levels. I reached out to a coach who gave me an "aha" moment. I took the coaches advice, worked through the TDC curriculum and passed the second time with confidence. I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to pass the clinical exam.

I am excited that I finally passed! I took the exam 2 other times. The first time I felt the exam was super heavy in Macro topics. The second time I missed it by 1. This time reviewing the program and having the newly added Macro section really helped! Thank you TDC!!!

Honestly, this was such a great investment. At first, it seemed quite a steep price to pay, but after passing on my first try the investment was well worth it. You can either invest in TDC and take the exam once or spend double the amount of money on other study materials and taking the exam numerous times. Thank you TDC -- I did it!!!!

Thank you so much, Amanda and TDC! I took the LCSW exam for the first time back in January and missed passing by 1 point. In preparing to take the test a second time, I knew I had to reinvigorate my approach to studying if I was going to pass. That's when I signed up for TDC. Your program and the way you broke down each category and question, gave me a the understanding and confidence I needed to conquer this exam! On my second attempt on May 4th, not only did I pass, but I scored a 116, 13 more than I needed to pass! Thank you for this wonderful study program! I have already recommended it to my social worker colleagues who are getting ready to study for their exams and I will continue to sing your praises :)

First time I took the exam and used another study system I failed by 9 points. A close friend suggested TDC and I couldn’t be more grateful. The thing I loved most about TDC is how the material can be used for any and every type of learning style. Still can’t even explain how happy I was (and still am) to have seen that PASS on my screen!! I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is planning on taking the LCSW exam. It not only helped me lock in the content, but build my confidence along the way. Thank you again TDC, honestly couldn’t have done it without you!!!

My process of earning my LCSW has been challenging. After four years of advocating for clinical supervision at different employers. After 3200 hours in January 2019 and much frustration, I submitted my hours. The added frustration started a year ago when my wife and I made plans to move closer to her parents and buy a house in Oregon, so I started studying a year ago. back to January 2019, I bought the TDC program and started moving my studying into overdrive. It took 8-weeks to hear back from the board and then another 2 weeks for approval to test. I quickly scheduled my test with the was able to pass! This process created lots of anxiety, so I took TDC advise to drink a lot of water and exercising. On test day, I ate a big breakfast and listen to lots of audio lectures from TDC (especially the code of ethics) up until I went into the test. Once I started the test, I felt okay (probably because of the the mock test and Pocket prep test). Then pushed the button for my test results feeling super nervous and the results came back "Passed" I was so excited and happy. Thanks TDC.

The TDC study system was amazing. I felt prepared and the rationales were so helpful. The material did not overwhelm me, and I felt confident on the day of the test. If I did not know an answer I was able to rule out half the answers to a question which made it easy to choose between the two remaining answers.
I highly recommend the TDC study system. I never thought I would pass the LCSW on the first try!
I'm elated!
Thanks Amanda and the TDC Team!

I am over the top thrilled to announce that I PASSED the exam immediately after participating in the TDC program. I thoroughly enjoyed engaging in this study program-yes it was FUN!! I felt extremely confident and prepared!!! Did I mention I PASSED!!! Amanda and her partner were so organized and simplified the entire study process!!!!

Therapist Development Center gave me the tools I needed to pass my LCSW exam on the first try. The rationales behind the question answers were extremely helpful in teaching me to understand what answers the test is looking for. The course strips away your style of thinking and rebuilds it in a way that prepares you for the exam. I am so grateful for TDC and would recommend that anyone sitting for an exam utilize their services!
