Price: $295.00

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 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 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 to 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 Clinical 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

I think you guys are great and have always been there when I asked for help.Thank You

After going through the TDC program and getting intimidated by the full mock exams, the real exam was way easier. TDC prepared me to easily pass with confidence.

I have ADHD so studying and retaining information is extremely difficult. I studied on and off for a few months until I ran out of time and finally needed to take my test. I did the program a week before my test and passed (first try) ! I was able to comprehend and retain information based on the variety of different ways info is presented (listening, quizzes, exams, everything you need to know in one place). This program truly helps you become a better social worker and teaches you how to answer questions and build confidence.

I thought the program was really great! As a kinesthetic learner it was really helpful to be able to take the quizzes and exams multiple times. They also had great auditory lectures as well. I could listen to the lectures on my drive to and from work and while I was cooking.

TDC provided me with the insight and confidence I needed to pass this test. I needed 102 to pass and my score was 110!!!!

Having used TDC to successfully pass my Law and Ethics exam the first time, I knew how instrumental this test prep program would be to my success. It did not let me down. I passed yesterday with an 84% on my first try. I seriously could not have done this without this incredibly wonderful program. Amanda counsels us to attack the test with confidence. I was able to do exactly that because of the knowledge I gained from following every step as well as taking full advantage of the tests and quizzes. Thank you most sincerely!!!! I will be FOREVER grateful.

This is the best study guide out there for the clinical exam. I passed on my first attempt and scored well above what was needed.

Passed 1st try LCSW!!!

TDC is the reason I passed my LCSW on the first try. It was so helpful, and the structure of the program made me feel confident. I cannot say enough good things about this program. I would recommend this program to anyone. Thanks TDC!

I studied with TDC for a about one month prior to taking exam and felt very prepared. I passed on the first try. Totally recommend!

I’ve been working towards this for many years, due to life circumstances it took me far longer than expected. TDC was clear, intentional, thorough and helped me feel focused when I was scattered. The actual exam felt very different than what I practiced here, but I definitely felt ready and prepared.

When I started studying for the LCSW exam I had no plan or direction on where to start. I found TDC extremely helpful in organizing my studying and giving me steps to follow. I did the entire program twice and listened to lectures multiple times.

This program helped me pass the exam. I relied on acronyms too much which led to multiple fails. I was so happy and ecstatic, that I cried, when finding out that I had passed. I started going through the materials again to help fill gaps in knowledge. I also took the three practice exams three times, over time, to ensure I was retaining information. There are speed options on the audio lectures that you can adjust to align with your learning. I ended up going to 1.25x speed as it aligned with how my brain engages/retains information. My strategy: I would have the Quick Studies available to visually go over while listening to the 50 test results audio lessons as well as having my test results printed out. For multiple ways of retaining information, this worked great for me. This is an INCREDIBLE PROGRAM!

THIS WAS AMAZING. I stumbled upon this study tool as I was looking for sample LCSW questions on the Google. I ordered it and had only a week to study - HORRIBLE I know, but I PASSED. I have used other methods of study in the past for the LSW exam and this was is by far the most comprehensive and helpful. 10/10 would recommend!

TDC made the studying process easier by covering the items that normally pop up in the test. Being able to complete mini quizzes and mock tests helped to test my knowledge and learn what to look for as well as how to read the questions correctly.

Now that I've taken the exam and am familiar with the material and questions asked on the exam, I feel that the Therapist Development Center study kit is the best kit to use, because it does cover all material that was on the exam and best prepares you for the reasoning questions without giving you too much unnecessary information to overwhelm you. Practice, practice, practice the "Best, Next, and First" questions and strategies, it is the majority of the test and feels deceptively easy to answer, but it's not!

Utilized the study material to start studying 12 days before the exam. Passed the exam despite short study time.

10/10 would definitely recommend.

The Top 50 Topics were a blessing to have throughout my studying. I listened to those recordings at least 3xs all the way through. It was so helpful to understand how to answer the questions on the exam. I also really appreciate the two full-length exams plus the two half-mock exams. Passed on the first try with flying colors.

Thank you!

Thank you TDC for helping me pass my LCSW with confidence on my first try!!! I was so overwhelmed before TDC and this program really helped to break everything down into manageable segments.

TDC is amazing. I love the audio files that provided the logic and rationale for answers. This piece is definitely missing from other study programs. I am thankful that the information was organized and easy to comprehend. I wish I would have found you when I initially began studying. Thank you for all that you do!
