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

Our 2019 LCSW Exam Study System prepares social workers to pass the CLINICAL Level Exam administered by the ASWB. Our 2019 LCSW Exam Study System is fully updated to reflect the new 2019 ASWB exam. Our online study system includes access to:

  • An organized, step-by-step study plan that allows you to create a personalized, easy to follow schedule.  Many people 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.
  • 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 program brings content alive with real life examples like the ones you will see on the ASWB Clinical Level 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 strategies also focus 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!).

Our LCSW Exam Prep/Clinical Exam Prep program takes 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 immediately. Nothing is shipped - it is all on-line. 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 very 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 and hopeless. 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 went into the exam feeling confident and sure of myself... not a feeling I have ever experienced before when taking an exam. Thank you!

I used TDC for my Law and Ethics Exam and for the LCSW Clinical Exam. I passed each exam on the first try. This was remarkable because I prepared myself for the possibility of having to take the exams again if I did not pass. However, I kept telling myself and telling others that I planned on passing. That was another thing, I did not keep my exam date a secret. I told everyone the dates I would be taking the exam. This helped me deal with anxiety over and over and slowly the pain in my stomach reduced. TDC prepared me in ALL areas. My highest recommendation is to work on test anxiety and anxiety in general when preparing for this exam. The practice exams helped me to always work on my thoughts and my ability to remain present even when things felt extremely difficult. I also highly recommend a study partner because accountability with another person working toward the same goal is key. My study partner lived in the same state but too far away to meet in person and we meet weekly on the phone for 8 weeks. Thank you TDC. This was exactly the study material I needed. I did view briefly another study program and it was overwhelming. The only other material I used was occasionally google to understand a concept further and I took the ASWB practice exam. Thank you again. I highly recommend your program.

Thank you TDC, I passed the LCSW exam today! I couldn’t have done this without your test materials, mock exams and on-line support. I have been out of school for over 11 years and was so intimidated by this process. I kept finding excuses for not taking the exam, there was always family and work commitments that would get in my way. A family friend recommended TDC about a year ago and I purchased the program which helped me get organized and focus on the goal of taking the exam once and for all. I really got serious after the holidays and spent the last couple months following the program. I went through everything twice which I found incredibly helpful. The mock exams helped get in the test taking mind set and I appreciated the rationale following each exam. I highly recommended this program. Thank you!

Thank you Amanda and TDC staff for helping me pass my exam and feel very supported while studying. I felt prepared and confident while taking the exam, and I passed on my first attempt.

I used other study material for my prior test and did not pass. There was just too much information. With Therapist Developmental Center I found it to make a huge difference in my learning. The biggest asset was learning about test strategy and how to understand the question stems in order to understand the right answer. The program was very easy to use and it was structured in a way that helped me maintain focus and know what I needed to do. The audio lectures were awesome detailing not only study content but test strategy. The quizzes, Top 50 Topics, and study guides were immensely helpful. The mock exams solidified understanding what the test is about and how to tackle it. I went through the program about three times before I tested, I made flashcards out of the quizzes and study guides, and I made posters to really help me understand the material. This program really focused my studies and I passed after using TDC. Only supplement I really used was the ASWB practice exam. I also feel that I have increased my clinical understanding significantly after completing the program. Thank you so much TDC! So grateful to have completed this final step in my licensing journey!

The BEST program with ongoing support!!!!!

A detailed and well-paced program that gave me the confidence to sit the exam. All the materials were useful in the exam and the two 4-hour mock exams got me primed for the actual day.

Many thanks!

I PASSED! The TDC was very helpful! I studied as recommended and went through the materials twice.

I could not have passed without this program. It a very difficult test to prepare for but I felt TDC helped me prepare as much as I could. I passed on my first attempt. Thank you so much for all the help.

I passed today with 80% correct. I followed the study plan twice and asked questions via email along the way. I would like to especially thank Heidi for answering my questions in a timely manner. The actual questions are very similar to TDC’s material, and my only suggestion to future task takers is that adopting Amanda’s way of thinking and reasoning from the audio as much as you can. Then you are good to go!

I recommend this program 100%, not only prepares you well, helps with clinical skills, and it feels like the creator, Amanda, really is passionate about SW and the Social Work values. I loved the genuine interest in contributing to guide and support the values of the profession.

The Therapist Development Center is an outstanding comprehensive study solution for students and professionals who are preparing for the ASWB Clinical exam. They provided a thorough, consolidated review of topics associated with the four content areas of the exam. The mini-quizzes, two-half and two-full mock tests provided invaluable opportunity to practice and learn both rationales and critical thinking. They offered high standard methods of teaching in a supportive environment with stand-by coaches and peer support. I would recommend this program to anyone, new graduates as well as seasoned professionals who are now pursuing licensure. The program builds confidence as you master the material one step at a time.

I believe the TDC course is great! I love how you all spoke to us in teaching I found that most helpful. I would have liked a video of how to break down the test in regards to the FIRST, BEST, NEXT questions. Overall, I am glad i purchased this program!

I attempted the LCSW twice in 2013 and failed both times! Not only did I fail, but I lost all my hours as well as my credentials.

6yrs later, I decided to go for it again and I purchased this system after researching it online! It was the only thing I used to study and I passed on this 3rd time! TDC does exactly what it promises as long as you commit to following the program as they suggest! I assure you, it’s the only study system you need!


Very well organized and step wise strength building test taking skills

I was working 5 days a week, commuting 2 hours a day, preparing for upcoming surgery and a job change; I had limited time to study. I started listening to the lectures during my commute, on weekends while doing errands, and when I'd wake up at 2am. I read the quick studies and did the mock exams, but basically just kept listening to the lectures until everything sunk in. A few days before my exam I had a question, and even on the weekend, Heidi replied within an hour or so. I passed on my first try with 127 (needed 103). Thank you TDC!

I passed the clinical exam this morning on my first try. This program prepared me well. I listened to the final pep talk right before entering the testing center and applied all of Amanda's recommendations/techniques. It is impossible to take any food/cough drops into the testing center without proper accommodation. I did take a break at question 85 to use the bathroom and drink a small cup of water provided by the testing center. Thank you Amanda and TDC staff. I am now a LCSW!!

I became an LCSW today on the first attempt and am happy to say I felt well prepared. This study program made me go in with confidence and with a strong understanding of the material needed to pass. I highly recommend TDC!

I love the structure of the program! It allowed for me to stay focus on the most common topics! Having access to Heidi/coaches is an amazing tool to have! She was so responsive to my questions and provided clarification within a day or so! I must admit I did not have a Facebook before starting my studying (for the third time), I did create a Facebook just for the support group. Although I did not post much or ask much, it did help me reading and validating that others were feeling the same way I was! also did enjoy that Heidi responded to questions and provided clarifications on the FB group. My favorite part of the program is that "They are with you until you pass", I couldn't imagine paying the program fee every time I test PLUS studying material every time (way to much $$$$$). I once requested an extension with another program and they denied the extension. Best of Luck everyone preparing for the test! Trust the process.

Thank you so much for the support and help. I passed my Clinical exam the first time I took it. I wouldn't have been able to do pass it on the first time without the help of TDC.
I highly recommend this program to everyone!
