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

Great program that really prepared me to pass! Felt confident with the material studied and the mock exams I took. Thank you TDC and coaches! :)

So....I have been licensed since 1987....then forgot to send in my licensing fee 2 years ago. I decided to go for it and try and 'go back to graduate school'....35+ years later and study up. Bought your program, passed. my score was 120 (102 required to pass). Thanks for your help. Onward and upward....

I finally passed the exam! I failed it twice and when I failed it the second time, I decided to quit social work and go into computer technology. It really was not something that I that good at and I really missed being a social worker. It was about a year after I quit that I decided to go back. I took the study guide very seriously and study very hard. The best part was Heidi answering the questions that I was not certain about and responding as quickly as possible. Because of you, there is another social worker is back helping clients and making a difference.

TDC does a great job of covering the bulk of the information clearly and concisely, and it really teaches you how to think for the exam.

I am thankful for the Therapist Development Center's study system; it was the absolute best expense ever. Before their program, I am embarrassed to say that I had taken this test a total of 4 times, each time failing by 1-3 points. I am an awful test-taker. Although I was still fearful of having another repeat, TDC prepared me - Amanda provided rationales and the compact study guide. Unlike other programs that have massive amounts of materials, TDC provided core subject matters, strategies in test-taking, regimen to prepare on the testing day, and a boost of confidence. Thank you, TDC, for being available for people like me and giving me the tools I needed to achieve this professional goal!

I passed on the first try! Before u began studying with TDC the information was like another language but once I started working through the program I was able to critically think through the questions. The program is organized and really covered mostly everything on the test. The coaches were helpful when I had questions, I was able to get an extension easily because my test date was several months after I began the program. I would buy it again!!

TDC completely prepared me for the ASWB LCSW exam. I studied at my own pace. Coach Heidi was very supportive. I would recommend this program every time!

I failed my first ASWB exam by one point. I knew the material but I was not as focused as I needed to be during the exam. I feel that reviewing the TDC program a second time helped me achieve my goal in passing the ASWB exam. I dedicated more time to studying and had a better understanding of the question format used on the exam. TDC is well worth it! I am so thankful to have found this program!

Great program and immediate support!

I can't thank Therapist Development Center enough for the amazing study materials. I am much more of an auditory learner and the audio lectures along with the quick studies, practice tests, mock exams and full mock exams helped me to study all of the material thoroughly in order to pass the exam. I did exactly what Amanda said in the final review and took her into the test with me. When there were questions I was struggling on, I could hear Amanda's voice in my head explaining the rationale. Excellent study course and I would definitely recommend it to anyone I know taking the exam!

I found TDC to be comprehensive and I was well prepared for the exam. I loved how the materials were presented and the available of written and audio instructions. I don't think I needed any other materials aside from TDC! Thank you.

Incredibly grateful! This program was exactly what I needed to keep focus, learn in a variety of ways and settings, and feel confident about “how” to take the exam.

I had so much anxiety about passing this test. I knew it was unrealistic for me to be successful if I was just reading through large study books. The recorded lectures, practice tests and rationales made all the difference for me, and I passed on the first try. Thank you so much!

I just finished (and passed!!!) my exam and wanted to take a moment to acknowledge just how well this program prepared me for the test. This program enabled me to go into the exam with the confidence that I had acquired all of the requisite knowledge to perform well, and it turned out beautifully. Thanks again for providing such an amazing resource to aspiring clinicians.

This was a great course and really covered all of the subjects very well. I was surprised at how easy the test was based on what I learned through this course and also how to approach the questions by breaking down the elements. There seemed to be many more reasoning/ best practice questions than recall questions. I am so glad I took this course.

I used TDC exclusively to prepare for the ASWB Clinical exam, and I passed my exam on my first try. This was huge for me, as I attended grad school in 2002-2004, so I needed to feel confident and well prepared since school was so long ago for me. I think the most useful part of the TDC was the ethics lecture. So much of what I learned was helpful not only to pass, but to be a more excellent, competent clinician. I appreciate how you helped me reach my personal goals. Thanks also to Heidi Tobe who was my personal coach and clarified topics that were confusing to me. I am so relieved it's over...

Good job TDC! I was a little worried going to into the exam because very often, in my experience, there's a curveball, some weird looking-random formatted question (grade school trauma-where your study guide is nothing like your final exam) HOWEVER TDC showed me different!! The mock exams were ssoooooo identical to the real exam. You really set us up for what the real thing is. Thanks Heidi for the ongoing support throughout my prep! Yay LCSW, I did it! :)

I was very pleased with TDC's materials, format of the training, and expansive overview of the materials. I felt well prepared heading into the exam and passed on my first attempt. I found most helpful feedback on how to take the test, how to interpret the scenarios, and how to break apart the stem to better understand what the exam was asking for. A++ and would definitely recommend and have to my other SW colleagues.

I had taken and failed the LCSW exam several times before. I was actually thinking about not taking it again. friend mentioned this course and I decided to give a try. I started, had some medical problems, and then started again. I didn't feel that I was a prepared I wanted when I took the exam this morning. But I remembered more than I thought and the exam seemed easier and I didn't have a problem controlling my test anxiety because I felt more confident than I did before. Without this course, I wouldn't have succeeded.

I used TDC to successfully pass my law and ethics exam, from there I knew that I would use it to study for my LCSW exam. I definitely I appreciated the audio, all the reading materials, quizzes and mock exams available to test your progress and confidence along the way. I also appreciated how fast they responded when I needed an extension to continue to access the study material. I highly recommend TDC to anyone that’s looking to focus on the quality of the material and the way that the information offered. Thank you TDC!
