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

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 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. 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 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 found TDC to be an organized program that eased my nerves about taking the clinical exam. I appreciated the structure and the realistic timelines. I feel like the lectures prepared me the most, especially being able to work through the rationales for the questions and understanding question structure for the exam. I'm very glad I made the investment with TDC to assist me with my exam preparation, I felt confident going into the exam and was able to pass on my first attempt.

First time pass! I think the important thing for me is that I didn't have to get 100%, I just had to pass. The material completely prepared me for taking the test and taking Amanda in with me worked!

This program left me feeling confident and well prepared going into the exam. Thank you!!

I have to thank the theropist development center for helping me pass this exam. The quick studies, dsm 5 whats the difference and ethics lecture helped prepare me in tackling this exam. I have bad test anxiety and had taken the exam twice before but following the tools of this program paid off.

Thank you, TDC, for providing such a comprehensive study program and for all the prompt support to my questions along the way! I trusted the study process, went thru the program several times over two months and really felt confident to walk into the test! So happy to have passed the LCSW exam!

I thought the material was great and heard great things about it. However, due to the pressure of taking the exam before my baby was due, I rushed through the material and it showed. I didn't pass on my first try. I feel good about reusing it to retake it in a few months though and I'm sure I will pass it next time. I will also make sure to take my time with the material this time around.

I took the ASWB on July 2nd and passed. I needed 103 to pass and scored a 115. The TDC study program very helpful in learning how to read and understand how to break down the questions. I took the AWB exam last December and missed it by 5 points. When studying the first time I used other study materials. Looking back I'm confident if I had used TDC when I first started studying for the exam I more than likely would have passed on the first try back in December. The various study materials provides helps to learn and understand the material in the exam in a structured way that made it less overwhelming to study. I need an extension due to needing more time to prepare and being able to get a date for the exam. I would recommend this program for anyone Who is needing study materials for the ASWB. Thank you TDC for this wonderful program that allowed me to become an LCSW.

I would not have passed without this study system. I followed the guidelines and did it at my own pace. So proud to pass on my first try!

I passed my LCSW exam the first time around with the use of TDC’s program! I did not use (or need) any other study system or materials, and felt well-prepared for the ways to think to work through the questions. TDC provided exactly what I needed!

I am so grateful that I found and used this program. I felt prepared for the test and confident that I had the ability to pass.

I waited 23 years between getting my MSW and taking the exam for the LCSW. If TDC can help me pass the first time out, they can help anyone.

Just turned 57 and have been out of school for 26 years. I felt 100 % confident and PREPARED walking through the doors this morning.Some of the questions seemed so easy I they were trick question.s It was truly because I was well-prepared by TDC. It really points you in the right direction and you stop studying a lot of other information for that you don't need for the exam. Thanks TDC..

First and foremost, I want to thank the incredible staff at TDC, especially Emily for taking the time to call me a few days before my exam and allowing me to process and work through my anxiety from previous failed attempts - she was amazingly supportive!
TDC is a fantastic, well organized program, especially for my learning style. I listened to the lectures multiple times, utilized the quizzes and quick studies on a daily basis. I loved the fact that when I traveled long distances in my car, or took time for self-care, I was able access the lectures from my phone. The program helped me to overcome my apprehension and prepared me to go into the exam feeling very confident. I recommend this program to candidates preparing for their clinical exam.

I used this program to pass my LGSW exam in 2014 and I decided to use this program again to pass my Clinical License. This program was well organized. I went through this program twice and I took some practice exams from LEAP and I purchased the ASWB practice exam. This program is the best program on the market. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone. I have already recommended this program to my colleagues who are currently studying for their exam. I honestly feel that this program developed my reasoning skills, which was the majority of the exam. While I was taking my exam, I continued to hear Amanda's voice and the test questions were similar to TDC's practice exams. Thank You So Much TDC. If it wasn't for this program, I would not have passed my exam.

I failed the test the first time around and was devastated. I guess I was overly confident that I was able to do it without adding in a lot of study time. After failing I googled the best study programs and TDC came up. I emailed Heidi and she helped me put some things in perspective. I began studying within the first couple weeks after failing the first time and rescheduled my test date in order to give myself a deadline. I am proud to say I PASSED! I feel so relieved and excited to move forward. I don't know that I could have done it without TDC and learning how to pass the LCSW.

Thank you TDC, your program really helped me out and how to go about taking the exam. I do recommend this program to others.

Awesome program and Amanda is great! She was in the testing room with me - or so it felt like she was . Thank you Amanda ! You are amazing and I appreciate you !

TDC is a comprehensive study program that far exceeds any other existing program you will find. I was well prepared to take the LCSW exam. Thanks TDC and keep up the great work you do!

I took Amanda in the test and followed her suggestions to the letter (almost), and passed with flying colors the 1st time!!

I was feeling overwhelmed and did not know where to begin for preparing for my test. A friend posted about your program and did excellent on the licensure test. I loved the organization of this study system and the coaching. I feel each category was relevant and helped to prepare me for the actual exam. I loved the mock up tests which were an excellent practice for the real thing. Overall, this program is the best!
