LCSW Exam Prep: ASWB Clinical Level Exam
Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2021 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 2021 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, and choosing the right social work ASWB Clinical exam guide can be confusing. 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 with other social work ASWB Clincal exam guides, 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 helped me pass my exam by 20 points! Could not recommend this study system more!!!

I cannot express my gratitude enough. The content that was provided with me was so good. I have been out of school for some time and it helped me to really learn what I needed to be able to pass. This program is exceptional.

The first time I took the exam, I failed by two points. I only used the ASWB exam prep book to study. I had heard about this course from a colleague and decided to try it. I felt much more confident this time and passed by 15 questions! I would definitely recommend this program and think it was worth the money. Thanks TDC! :)

Today, I passed the ASWB-LCSW exam this morning on the first try!!!! I needed 103 to pass and got 123 correct. I appreciated Amanda’s audio lectures as well as her audio rationales. I also appreciated Heidi’s patience and her way of breaking down all the information so I could understand better. The program enabled me to go into the test by “leaning in” and attacking it. So grateful for TDC. It made me feel confident to pass and ultimately make me the best clinical social worker I could be. THANK YOU!!

Thank you for providing a comprehensive study guide. Happy to say I passed my exam! Do not know if I could have done it without the help of this material to help keep me focused and organized.

I had so much more confidence after using TDC. I had failed my LCSW exam earlier and was very reluctant to try again until I completed the TDC program. I asked the "coaches" a few questions for clarification and they were super prompt to respond with the rationals explained further. The tips Amanda gave were very helpful and I feel like she was there with me throughout the process!! I can't say enough about the value of TDC!!

I passed on the first try after using the TDC study system which supported my preparation. I especially appreciated the different formats for learning and the ability to retake tests/quizzes to mark my improvement during my weeks of study which boosted my confidence level. My coach responded to my questions in a very timely way that were helpful and positive. I would recommend this course to any social worker who would like to pass their ASWB exam.

Third time was the charm in my situation. Thank you TDC for the excellent teaching materials. I actually took time off from work to study and it made a difference. For those who have not passed yet, I highly recommend that you continue to use TDC study materials, listen to the audio over and over until it sticks; use your higher power and when you are actually testing and that negative voice appears, don't listen keep focused, you got this!

I can't begin to say enough about this program. Even with my procrastination and only TEN days until my test, I felt a level of confidence that I did not get with the previously used system. I could read off and identify DSM diagnoses like the most experienced of SWs. As a person that was trying for the second time, the pressure I was putting on myself was immense, but thanks to this program I was able to succeed and accomplish my personal goal of passing my LCSW before my 30th birthday! As a supervisor with LSWs underneath me, I will not hesitate to recommend this program to them as they begin their journey for their clinical license. Thank you Amanda and the whole TDC team!!!!

Hands down the BEST program! I felt completely prepared! Cannot recommend it enough for anyone looking to have a great study system to pass the LCSW! I studied for one month and passed the exam today!

I work for a health scholarship program and I support MSW students to help them study for there LSW exam. Our scholarship program pays for our scholars to use TDC. I was struggling to pass my own LCSW exam and decided to sign-up. Each component helped including the quizzes, 1/2 mock and full mock exams were excellent practice. The most supportive part is when I did not pass and I contacted TDC they extended my access to TDC and even gave me a password that became my affirmation each time I signed in to study. Also, the tips they shared about not passing helped to reframe my disappointment into a lesson of self-care. My goal was 110 questions correct on the exam and I completed 115 questions correctly. Mahalo nui loa TDC for all of your materials, guidance, and for standing by your clients until we PASS!

The audio lectures helped the most. “What’s the difference” really helped to recognize the small differences needed to recognize diagnosis and not just try to memorize each of them. The information on how to think really helped leading up to the test. Thank you.

Prior to TDC I was studying but did not feel motivated to study consistently. I felt like I was doing the same thing I did for my LMSW, which I passed the first time, but this time was a big deal. Once I resisted for TDC, I was motivated to study daily and was able to go through the program twice in a month, with a full time job and two kids. I would highly recommend!

I'm so thankful for Therapist Development Center. It is the only program and method of studying that worked for me. When I tried studying on my own I couldn't focus and procrastinated. With TDC I was able to listen while I drove to work, review the written material at home and pass the ASWB Clinical exam on my first try.

Amazing study program that definitely prepares you for the exam! The biggest thing that helped me pass was learning how to think through the questions on the exam and this study program prepares you for that plus helped me feel confident in the content and material. One thing that helped me truly learn the content was putting the knowledge quizzes into Quizlet and playing games with the content on there countless times.

Everyone needs to take use TDC!

I took my exam and finally passed. TDC was very helpful with resetting my tests and their program is awesome. Their program touches on all aspects of the test. I recommend it to anyone who are ready to dive in. Thanks TDC I love you all. Amanda and Heidi and everyone else that took the time to help me in this process. To everyone don’t give up for me five times was a charm.

Passed the LCSW exam!! I needed 103 to pass & got 110! I took a several breaks, using all but 7 minutes. It was my 2nd time... I missed by 2 points on 9/1. I ordered TDC and went through the entire program. I originally used Apgar and just had issues visualizing the concepts... TDC HELPED a ton with that. I took notes over TDC, color coated them, then reviewed them using the Natural Readers app to review. The morning of I reviewed medications, social work roles, stages of treatment, and defense mechanisms I also joined in 3 different study groups via zoom over the past 6 months. I can’t help but think there are been some blessings with this pandemic with our ability to network with each other! POSITIVE VIBES & prayers to each of you!!

I chose TDC because I needed structure on where to begin with reviewing and studying for the LCSW. The material was precise and straight to the point. I appreciated the quizzes and all of the mock exams because it allowed me to practice applying the skills learned throughout the course. I passed on my second attempt and was granted access to this program until I passed!

TDC is amazing and worth every penny. After failing my first time by 3 points I was discouraged. Using the TDC helped me gain the confidence and knowledge to pass!
