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.

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

Hello there,

I took the clinical examination on Friday, 11/1/19 and passed. Honestly, I am still in shock that I passed because I work at DCFS and primarily do case management services and shifting my mind to think like a clinician was very challenging for me. Having said that, I did it and I am feeling very proud of myself. I would most defiantly recommend this program to anyone. Thank you!

I am very pleased with TDC. The key is to TRUST the process. I followed the program (twice) and took all their suggestions and advice and I did very well on the exam. Reviewing my wrong answers on the mock exams were extremely helpful and all the short quizzes helped with recall knowledge. The portion about HOW to take the exam is SO so important, as doing well takes some strategy. I would highly recommend TDC to anyone.

I passed the Clinical exam on my third try! TDC is well-rounded and very structured which helped with my test anxiety. I emailed the coaches when I had a question or needed support, went through the program twice, had Amanda in my head, imagined the client in my office, etc etc ALL the things TDC prepares you for! I highly recommend this program! Thanks TDC!

I felt so prepared for the LCSW exam by using Therapist Development Center's program. I love that this system takes into account how people learn and doesn't require excessive and overwhelming memorization. All of the practice tests were super helpful and I felt very confident going into the exam.

TDC was a lifesaver!! When I initially started to study for this test, I had no idea where to start. The structure and different study methods were so helpful. I passed my Clinical exam on the first time and felt so prepared and confident going in! I would definitely recommend TDC to everyone!

Excellent program. Was previously using other study materials, but stopped as soon as I got TDC because it was far better than the programs I was using.

I am very pleased with the program. As a busy individual this program let me study at my own pace. I am a full-time employee, mother of a 19 month old whom is currently 22 weeks pregnant. I wanted to feel prepared when I completed the test. I was extremely prepared and passed on my first attempt.

I want to take the opportunity to thank Heidi for coaching me through the study process. She is amazing, patient, and kind. Her responses were timely, but even more importantly her explanations were robust and understandable. I initially started prepping with a different company who only provided a multitude of practice tests and rationales, and I felt there needed to be more content driven studies, and found TDC. I am thrilled I found TDC and decided to invest the money and abandon the other program all together. I was pleased that TDC provided a methodical way of studying. Although I only had three weeks to get through the TDC study and would have preferred more time, I tackled it the way Amanda suggested in the first lecture and kept at it every day for three weeks. I uploaded a picture of me at my family celebration dinner the evening I passed the test! I could not be more excited and grateful for the support of Heidi, TDC and for the way in which Amanda explains everything. I learned the most from the DSM what’s the difference, and the Code of Ethics lectures as well as ensuring I knew the top 50 topics. I wish I could continue to use these lectures as a way to continue to reinforce these principles. THANK YOU!!!!

So thankful to have passed my LCSW exam today! Thank you TDC. The abundance of practice questions through your program was very helpful. I also noticed that the question stems/scenarios through TDC were extremely similar to the real exam which was reassuring.

I bought this program the beginning of this year because I wanted to take my test and I heard good things about this program. I did not focus and skimmed around on the program and failed the first time. I came back on here and actually paid attention and did things step by step and it raised my confidence and I passed the second time around!

This program was great. It help me to organize and stay focused

The program was well organized and content was appropriate for what was on the test. I felt well prepared going into the test and passing just affirmed I am ready for the next step.
Thank you.

Thank you so much! I took my exam today and passed!! I was so nervous going into it. I didn't stick to the study plan as much as I should have. The program was amazing! The way that it is broken down and teaches how to take the test was very helpful! I have already recommended the program to others. I needed a 103 and got a 109. I know that if I have allowed myself more time to study my score would have been even higher.

Used TDC for both exams (Law and Ethics and LCSW) and successfully passed. This program fully prepares you by giving you the tools to pass the exams. Be patient and trust the process.

I really appreciate The Therapist Development Center !!! I heard about this program when I was preparing to take my LMSW. I used this program and passed on my first try. I purchased the program again for my LCSW and once again I passed on the first try! I studied the program for three months and reviewed the program materials twice. I was nervous walking into the exam but tried to remain confident. After starting the exam and reading the first question I immediately felt relieved. The questions were worded very similar to TDC's. Of course it is impossible to teach everything the exam expects you to know , however TDC does a great job of covering majority of the information. TDC also does a great job training you on how to think to answer the questions. I attempted to watch video's people posted in Social work study groups and quickly became discouraged. How they answered questions was completely different from TDC and I always got the answers wrong. Once I became completely focused on TDC and stopped relying on outside sources, my confidence returned. The only outside information I used was videos from Youtube on the theories from TDC. I am a visual learner so having visual aids help me process information better. I am very appreciative of TDC and know I could not have passed with out them. Their system is all you need to study for any social work exam.

I have used TDC for the law and ethics exam and passed, so naturally I used TDC for the licensing exam. I was 6 months pregnant when I started studying thinking that I would be able to take the LCSW exam hella pregnant...I wasn't. I had to wait and recover. TDC was flexible and allowed to to extend my testing materials until after I had my baby. I always had a fear of standardized tests. TDC helped me to conquer this fear, by preparing me on how to "attack the test". The testing skills and techniques were just as important as the study material. The mock exams were just like taking the real thing. I love TDC and want the world to know it!

This study program was the biggest help; I could pace myself however I wanted depending on my life events and reach out to someone at easy convenience. I needed an extension at least 2-3 times especially when I found out we were expecting. I doubted my memory and study skills with the "baby brain" but this program was so helpful and built my confidence to a point where I felt as though I could walk into the test pregnant and all feeling like I had prepared as much as I could, I could attack the test, and I had prepared

It was great. I totally felt prepared.

I passed!! I got more than the required amount of questions correct which was nice. I truly attribute my passing score to the skills taught in how to read, and interpret what the question stem is asking. Also the process of elimination that Amanda teaches in looking at what to do FIRST/NEXT. Also thank you Heidi for responding so promptly to my questions. I did not pass the first time and gave feedback related to MACRO strategies and I felt very heard by TDC staff. I loved that a MACRO Audio was incorporated in the study system which truly was a help! I definitely feel so proud of passing, but I am grateful for new skills I've learned through the program.

So pleased to say I was able to pass the clinical exam on my first attempt! TDC prepares you so well to think your way through questions and to retain information that will help you select the correct answers. The journey leading up to these exams can be overwhelming and having this program lay out everything helps immensely. I’m so grateful I found this program and for how much I’ve learned along the way!
