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

Thank you Amanda & to the TDC staff! I passed the LCSW exam on the 1st attempt, as well as the Law & Ethics exam using this amazing program. I felt prepared and confident going into the exam. I appreciated how well structured the lectures and quick studies are. I also benefitted from the variety of practice exams available that helped me get familiar with how the actual test was. Thank you so much for the support! I highly recommend this program to become test ready for the BIG day!

I took the exam yesterday and PASSED on my first attempt! The exam was tough! I studied with other materials since the end of January. I needed to ensure passing as we could be relocating soon and I needed to have my license so everything could transfer. I added TDC program into my study routine a couple weeks ago for the extra push. Loved the mock exams and audio files. Samantha

I brought Amanda with me everywhere, in my study sessions, my personal life, my work, and my exam day. There were days when I felt it was over my head and I wouldn’t grasp it but when I got through the program after multiple times and took the mock exams, I felt confident. A surreal sense of confidence that I had done TDC and prepared myself through the program. Thank you for a simple, challenging, and rewarding program!

I wouldn’t have been able to pass the clinical exam if wasn’t for purchasing TDC. Best investment that improved my clinical skills, overall.

This was the most interactive study guide and it was perfect for my learning style. I am hands on, I need to interact and have discussion. The fact that the answers get explained, BOTH right and wrong answers are explained and that helps with getting into the mindset of which answers the tests are looking for. I love the quick study guides so there isn't an overwhelming amount of information and a 300 + pages book to read. The quizzes are great! I love that there are 2 mock tests plus 2 tests that are 85 questions. I had to take an ASWB exam to get my LMSW in a previous state and it took me twice to pass and going for my LCSW I was nervous I was about to spend over $500 just for testing attempts and I ended up passing on my first time! I would recommend this to anyone!

This course is the truth, the way, and the light! I have extreme test anxiety and I passed with flying colors. If you want to pass your exam you'll need to take this course. Why? Because the LCSW exam test examines how to think like a social worker. This course teaches you HOW to study, gives you a study method that focuses on the exam you want to pass. I answered the questions with confidence. USE THIS PROGRAM.

I took the TDC course to prepare for my LCSW. I feel like it really helped me prepare to pass my exam! I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking for study resources for either their LSW or LCSW.
Thanks to Amanda, Heidi, and TDC!

I felt so incredibly prepared for both the LCSW Law and Ethics and Clinical exams. The information was thorough and easy to digest, the sample questions were spot on and the rationales really helped me to further develop a clinical mind. I actually enjoyed the study material and look forward to utilizing the continuing education material from Therapist Development Center, as well. Thank you for your help, Amanda!

The first time I took the exam I used a different study regimen and did not feel confident in myself- seeing the fail crushed me. I took three months off to regroup and refocus. I started using TDC in January and by end of February I felt confident in my abilities. Took the test today- needed 102 scored 112. What a reliefs!

Passed today! I've already recommended this course to colleagues. I wouldn't have passed without this course. It was really well done and I felt very prepared going into the exam!

I think the program has all the components needed to corral the huge breadth of material covered in the actual exam. Accessing the trainings is a bit clunky, especially on a mobile device. Having an app would be great! But it got the job done as is. I passed, and that was the bottom line goal.

absolutely fantastic study material.

I credit this program to my success on the LCSW exam. This was my first time testing and I wasn't sure if I was truly prepared. I was overwhelmed and felt as though it was too much information to possibly learn. The great part of this program is that they equip you with enough knowledge that you're comfortable eliminating answers and determining the correct answers through talking through the vignettes. Simply memorizing information is not the way to study and I wouldn't have been confident enough to do that without Heidi and Amanda!

The structure of the program and the study plan were what I felt helped me the most. I enjoy the audio portion of the study prep more than the written information. I almost wish that all the mini-mocks had audio rationale along with the written rationale. I'm an auditory learning though. Thank you TDC, this has been a 10 year process for me since I graduated with my MSW.

Thank you TDC for a great course that buoyed my confidence as a social worker and also prepared me to pass the exam. I took Amanda's words with me into the exam and "leaned into" the test in spite of huge self-doubt and not a minute of sleep the night before. I followed the exam tips completely; with the two recommended breaks, reminding myself to be present and even bringing cough drops. Thanks and carry on your great work for all the future test takers.

I was really nervous taking the exam the second time and talking to Heidi the day before was extremely helpful with the tips and strategies we discussed! Super glad I was able to call her and get reassurance.

The program works. I passed on the first attempt. The final pep talk before the exam helped me to get over the test anxiety. Once I clicked start on exam day, I leaned in (as recommended) and finished the exam with almost an hour of time to spare. During the test, I felt well prepared and did not encounter any subject that was not covered by TDC or that I could not reason my way through. Thanks TDC Team for a great experience!

5 STARS FOR THIS PROGRAM!!! I would like to say that I could not have passed the LCSW Clinical Exam without TDC. I felt as fully prepared as I could ever be, despite my nerves and anxiety about the exam (my score was 126/150). TDC provided a concise study process and program, touching on all the pertinent areas. I truly feel every section of the material was carefully developed and designed to support me in this process. A few key things that were helpful for me was reviewing the material twice, transcribing/typing the information while listening to the audios and reviewing the rationals of each test so I would understand why I missed a question. During the test, I took Amanda's wise words with me, visualizing myself in the moment, and asking myself what I would do next if I the client was actually sitting in my office. I would recommend this program to anyone and am eternally grateful for the support I received!!! THANK YOU!!!!

I passed on the first time taking the exam. I highly recommend this studying course. From beginning to end I felt it was easy to follow and realistic. I believe the only thing that was hard for me was me actually committing and getting back to the study rhythm (we tend to loose it after our graduate program). However, once I began little by little to study I felt it was good. One tip I do recommend is to take Amanda (in your head) the day of the exam. I had some questions about some of the exam questions/answers and I kept telling my self in my own head “WWAD? = What Would Amanda Do?” Sounds funny but it really helped (specially because I tend to freak out in test taking mode). Overall, I am happy with the results and the course material really prepared me well for this exam.

I took the test back in Oct 2018 with no experience in the clinical field and without completing the program fully and did not pass. I committed to completing the program the second go round and passed my exam. I appreciate Heidi for being so available to answer my questions and encouraging when I may have doubted myself. I am still in shock but I will say without the program I would not have been as prepared to answer the questions.
