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

National LCSW Exam Study Program

Our 2021 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 2021 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 am so grateful a friend referred this program to me. I felt confident walking into the exam since I scored well in the mock exams the two weeks before. The diversity of information delivered through this prep program was what worked best for me: audio, lecture, quizzes and tests, note taking, and reading. The prep work covered every topic that was on the test and during my break at question 85, I knew I was killing it! I did absolutely everything laid out in my plan, even taking a walk the evening before the exam. If you put in the work, you will do great! Thanks to your team for all of hard work you contribute to your program, it works!

It was great content. I enjoyed every aspect. The audio, written test, quick studies and mock tests. I believe TCD thoroughly prepared me for Clinical test and I passed on the very 1st time. I love the moderator's voice, she was calming and knowledgeable. Having a plan and the sections broken down helped immensely.

This program was beyond helpful! I felt very prepared for the exam and passed on my first attempt. I highly recommend this program.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the comprehensive study program! I took the test with a different sense of confidence and calm. 2 times prior to today, I failed by 1 point, and 3 points...this time passed with flying colors! The Full Mock exams really helped to solidify the confidence and de-sensitize me the test anxiety.
Thank you very much!!!!! WHOO HOOOO! (If I failed this time, I would've had to restart my entire clinical internship from 0!)

Thank you TDC!!!! My sister who is an an LCSW recommended this program to me and it is worth every penny spent. It’s thorough and helpful and so supportive. I enjoyed the lectures and the DSM what’s the difference. I also enjoyed the last pep talk which helped me feel empowered to attack the test! I did it and passed on my first try! I

Thank you!!

I feel that the study material overprepared me for sure. I became well-versed on terms, theories and interventions, and I feel like I was well prepared on scenarios that required reasoning skills and critical thinking thanks to the study material. Thank you for helping me pass on my first try!!

So happy, excited and thankful to share that I took the exam today and passed!!! I couldn't have done it without TDC! You're format and detailed explanations are clear and concise. Of all the resources I tried, TDC was the best. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a comprehensive study aid. Thanks again!

Without the help of the TDC, I don't think I would have passed.

Thank you for giving me the material to study in addition to encouraging me to do self-care and keep my life in balance.

This was my second attempt at the lcsw. I used another program that basically taught acronyms and since that program was only a one day workshop I had to get all my questions answered that day. ANYWAY I failed as a result of being ill prepared. TDC was different in that I had access to coaches, quizzes, and lectures. The program teaches to visual and auditory learners. Loved it

Yes TDC did an excellent job preparing me to take the exam, the questions in TDC material are seminar to the ones on the exam.

Hallelujah!!!! I passed on the FIRST try!!! Yay!!!! Thank you TDC!!! I am so very grateful for the guidance, support, and coaching this system provided. It was KEY to me passing my exam! The audio lectures were super comprehensive, the quick studies, quizzes and OMG the mock exams were awesome!

The mock exams trained my brain to go the distance for the actual test! You guys have this thing down to a science and IT WORKED! I went in with high confidence, followed all the tips Amanda gave and I conquered the test! That pep talk had me super hype! Thank you again Amanda, Bethany and the entire TDC team!! I truly appreciate you and could not have done this without you!!!

I am so grateful for this program! It had been a while since I was in school, and I felt overwhelmed about studying for the LCSW exam. I was not sure where to begin, but TDC really helped me follow an organized plan and helped me to understand what the exam would be looking for in answering the questions as well as helped refresh my memory on all the other information. They also answered all of my questions. I emailed a coach and received a quick reply with great clarification for my questions. Thank you so much!!!

Excellent exam prep! The step by step process was very helpful. I found the combination of audio and visual material helped me learn and meant that I could access it when on the go! I also found the exam taking strategies very helpful!Thank you

I loved this program! I failed the LCSW test the first time by one point and I felt defeated. It took me 10 years to get the nerve to retake the test because I was scared and intimidated. I studied for 3 months using TDC. I killed the test the second time! I needed a 102 to pass and I got a 131! Thanks TDC!!!!

This course was such an efficient, targeted, and focused way to study for the LICSW exam. I couldn't imagine passing without it, but did my first time. I also enjoyed how much I learned along the way that wasn't covered in graduate school that I will use doing clinical Social Work. One thing I don't understand is how I got 138 on the First Full Mock, 122 on the 2nd Full Mock, and 113 on the actual exam. (Although I think I got the harder of ASWB's two exams: the one where 60% is required to pass as opposed to 70%). I did reach out to a coach once while preparing and got excellent written advice about how to analyze my thinking and process on the Mock questions that I got wrong. This was extremely helpful. I highly recommend this course to anyone who will be taking the LICSW exam.

You guys saved my absolute ass. Thank you and god bless.

I felt very well prepared for the LCSW exam using Therapist Development Center's prep! I was worried since I had some personal issues come up inhibiting my ability to study as much as I would have wanted to but the course helped me study and focus on what I needed. The course is a great mix of audio guidance and reading material, highly recommend!

I am incredibly grateful for this program. I attempted the exam in March after only using the ASWB study book and failed. My heart was shattered, but knew this was not a reflection of my skillset as in the real world we have resources and collaborate! A friend then shared about TDC and passed on her first try! I completed the full study program through TDC and passed my exam yesterday! I am sharing this program with every social worker I know who is pursuing their LCSW! THANK YOU!!!
