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

I just passed the ASWB exam today on the first try. I must say this program is well organized and allows for us to focus on what is needed to pass. It is helpful in learning to process questions! I would recommended. I also used it for my Law and Ethics exam 2 years ago.

I would like to thank TDC for all of your guidance with passing the LCSW preparation exam! I have taken the LCSW exam twice before with little success using other test preparation materials. This time around I LITERALLY used all of your suggestions - studying rationales, quick studies throughout exam preparation. The MOST helpful thing was using the LCSW prep coach Heidi via email with specific items I struggled with. I highly recommend this course to anyone preparing to take the LCSW exam!!!

I would first like to thank you for putting this program together and utilizing audio lectures to make the process of studying (for hours) bearable. I personally have a difficult time studying for hours but not with this program and the audio lectures. It brought back the memories of being in class lectures which I personally loved. Going over the exam questions and having an explanation provided for each answer was extremely helpful during the actual exam because I was able to think about each questions and ask myself, "How would they like me to answer this?" There was several times that I even asked myself, "How would Amanda answer this?" which reassured me that I can do this! And I did it! Practicing actual exam questions is crucial to passing this exam which is exactly what this program offered. In addition to having all of the study content organized, the practice exams and each explanation provided was very helpful. In addition to utilizing this program, I did purchase the ASWB practice exam 3 days before my actual exam, just to prepare myself using the actual modality used during the LCSW exam which was also helpful.
If it wasn't for this program there was no way I would have spend as many hours as I did studying.
I will continue to praise your program and again from the bottom of my heart, I thank all of the individuals who made this program possible and available to us. I was looking forward to writing this knowing that I would pass my exam. Thank you for the confidence that you instilled throughout the program which is also very important.
Thank you and with best regards,
Aleksandra Smrha, LCSW !

I felt like TDC prepared me well for the exam. I feel like it helped me build the confidence that I needed in order to pass. I studied for my LMSW on my own without a study program and didn't feel nearly as prepared as I felt with the LCSW after using TDC.

I felt so lost when I first started studying - I had no idea where to start and was overwhelmed. I heard some really good things about TDC so I decided to try it out. TDC broke everything down for me via amazing lectures, practice exams, study material and so so many helpful tips and tricks. I went into the test feeling well prepared and passed on the first try! I highly recommend this program for everyone, it is worth the money!

I've never been a strong test taker all throughout academia, and having this exam looming over my head after receiving my master's has been nothing short of an anxiety driven machine, building momentum in my head. This program undeniably helped in catering to my both my learning style and lifestyle; I am a commuter and spend a lot of time sitting in traffic, and I am an audio learner. The material, website, and staff are friendly and easy to use. Without a doubt, I would recommend this program to anyone pursing their license. I passed on my first attempt and am forever grateful to have stumbled upon this gem of a program.

It took me a long time to get around to studying for and taking my LCSW exam, related to various professional (not technically needed in my job as an Assertive Community Treatment Team Clinician) and personal issues (life, parenting). I had put off studying for it for years because I have been out of school for 25 years and the idea of doing seemed daunting given a full time, very demanding job in the field and life in general. My friend, who was in a similar situation, used TDC and passed the exam. She recommended the program to my husband, another friend and I. All three of us ended up using TDC, two of us have passed and one is just starting her studying process. The TDC system structured the information I needed to learn in a way that I could not have done as well on my own. The program was rigorous, challenging, comprehensive and more than adequately prepared me for a difficult exam. The LCSW exam did not seem intuitive at all to me. You really do have to learn how to answer the questions. Having a good understanding of the Knowledge Areas was helpful in picking correct answers or ruling out wrong answers on nearly all the questions. It also gives you a stronger sense of confidence going into the test than you would have had otherwise. Thank you TDC. SO glad that is over. Good luck everyone.

Using Therapist Development Center, I passed my ASWB Clinical exam on the first try. The structure made studying less overwhelming, and being able to listen to the audio lectures during my work commutes was my favorite part. My coach Heidi was incredibly responsive and enormously helpful. Thank you!!!!

Thank you TDC for having such a wonderful program. The lectures and 50 topics helped me feel prepared for the LCSW exam. I passed on the first try! I was initially anxious when I started the exam, but I anxiety was reduced as I answered questions. I highly recommend your program!!! The coaches are wonderful and will respond to questions promptly. I cannot thank you all enough.

The TDC was heaven sent for me! I encountered numerous horror stories about how difficult this exam was from colleagues. It had me nervous to take it, fearing that I too, would fail due to thinking that every answer choice was correct. I started using the ASWB study guide, and that was not helpful for me at all. The TDC provided more of an interactive training experience, which was very helpful for me. I advise anyone that is preparing for this exam to complete the entire TDC program and listen to the prep talk. Amanda was awesome, and I honestly heard her voice throughout the entire exam. Attacking the exam, and not allowing the exam to attack me was my motivation!

I utilized Therapist Development Center as suggested with the provided schedule over the course of around 8-9 weeks. I went through the program twice, and really feel that taking the time to start the entire program from scratch the second time helped engrave the information in my mind! I am so happy that I was able to pass the LCSW exam (NC) on my first attempt! Such a relief to have this done. I will recommend this program to my friends who are about to prepare to take the exam as well.

Excellent study program. I learned so much during my studying process. The way that it is organized helps you remember the information. My favorite part about this program is the fact that there is a coach available for you and their response time is super fast. They are patient with you and you can tell they really want to help you pass. I passed!!

Yes I like to say that I followed it to the "T". i realized how much I was misinformed before with a different program. I am just so thankful to Heidi for her coaching and continuous and prompt support. I strongly feel that this program is a SMART program, is easy, stress free and organized, well design to pass the ASWB exam.
Thank you so much!!! Mil Gracias !!

So grateful for this program. I felt supported by the LCSW coach and the many ways that the program reinforces the learning materiel. I highly recommend the TDC program!

TDC did such a great job of preparing me for the ASWB Clinical exam! I went into the exam so confident. It honestly was such a breeze only because of the amazing materials provided by TDC. I would 100% recommend using this course.

I am a 51 year old mom of three. I have wanted to get my MSW since I was in my 20's, but life, kids, family and finances kind of overtook that dream. I finally bit the bullet and started an online MSW program in Jan of 2015. I graduated last April of 2018 and now I can say that I have passed the ASWB Clinical Exam! If I can do it, anyone can do it! I am so relieved to have this test behind me. I almost started crying when I was done with the little survey at the end of the test and clicked the next button and I read the word PASS!!! I was shaking so bad! Your program is extremely good! Not only did it prepare me for this exam, it has consolidated what I learned while pursuing my degree and has helped me focus. It's almost like a post graduate refresher course. I didn't use any other programs and I personally wouldn't recommend it. I think it muddies the waters too much.
I do feel slightly irritated with myself that I didn't pass by a higher number, but I am forever grateful that I passed! That's just me. Always second guessing myself. Thank you for this program! It was worth every penny. And thank you for agreeing to split my initial payment. You have been very helpful. I have already recommended the program to two of my colleagues.

I passed the LCSW test yesterday in Virginia. I am so thankful for being directed to TDC - this program gave me the structure needed to pass the exam. Like many social workers, I work fulltime and have a part time job - I am an elder abuse investigator and on the side, supervise court ordered parents with their kids. I started to study in mid October, but got serious in February when I set the exam date for May. I am glad that I gave myself the early start because I found that I was tired after work and often would not have any time to study until the weekend.

I went through the test anxiety/preparing for the test and first mock exam, which I failed. I repeatedly listened to the review clips. Sometimes I listened while playing video games or in the car.

I rallied a few of my coworkers who were also studying by doing 15 minute study breaks with questions from We did the questions - usually 2-3x a week beginning in January.

I mainly stuck to the timeframe that TDC developed and made flash cards from their study materials. I kept a set of cards in my bag and another set in the bathroom to periodically look at.

In the end, I did the quizzes and ran out of time to do the last two mock exams. Part of me saved the mocks in case I failed the test. The last exam I did while watching Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones.

I consistently averaged in the mid 70s and that was the score that I received.

I work in an agency and have been referring my coworkers to TDC. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to have access to your program. Thank you for all of your hard work.

Excellent prep! I felt confident going in and was excited to see that my version of the test matched well with the mock exams! Thank you so much for helping me pass!

I learned every subject needed to pass the test. The audios, emotional support and accountability this program provides is unheard of and exactly what I needed to pass. Thank you so much.

Thank You TDC. Without this study guide I would not have even known where to begin. I passed on my 2nd attempt. I used the program for my first attempt as well, but didn't have enough time to get through the full program. I was 9 months pregnant, had a two year old at home and had to test before the baby came.

The second time through the program I really felt a lot of "ah-hah" moments and everything started to click. The majority of the test is really understanding the question and WHAT IT IS ASKING. This program was so thorough in breaking down every single question, looking for key words, putting things in order, or eliminating answers. If I am able to get through this program with two kids two and under at home then I feel anyone can do it. Im not sure if I would have even attempted to test if a program like this was not available. This program gave me HOPE. Thank You.
