For many social workers, taking the ASWB Masters Level Exam can be very intimidating, and that is understandable. The ASWB Masters Level Exam covers a massive amount of content. With so many options - books, workshops, apps, and other online options, finding the right social work ASWB Masters Level Exam Study Guide can be daunting.

It has been our experience that many social workers come to us after using other social work ASWB Masters Level Exam Study Guides and failing.  Frustrated and defeated, they worry that they won’t ever be able to pass the exam. Many students report that they were overwhelmed with books or the app that they bought were nothing like the ASWB Masters Level Exam.  We totally get it. That’s exactly why we created this LMSW licensing exam training and exam study guide program for the ASWB Masters level exam. As social workers who have actually successfully passed the ASWB Masters Level Exam Study Guide who had seen the other study guides out there, we knew there was a very real need for a better program for test-takers. That is why we created a robust, but concise study system that provides a clear plan and multiple learning methods so your brain can truly learn and absorb the material. When it comes to passing the ASWB Masters Level Exam, you are in good hands with the Therapist Development Center team.  We look forward to helping you pass!

Course Reviews

I used TDC to study for my ASWB exam and passed on the first time! I went through the program twice and felt super confident walking into the exam.

I used TDC to study for my ASWB exam and passed on the first time! I went through the program twice and felt super confident walking into the exam.

It was amazing and easy to navigate. I felt confident and ready on exam day!

TDC is a great program for content and learning how to think the way the exam wants you to think. I learned soo much and felt prepared for my exam as well as going into the field and practicing as a licensed social worker. I will use again when I’m going for my LCSW in the future. Thanks again!

I passed my LMSW exam on the first try! I love TDC

I am extremely grateful for this program! The study plan, supportive coaches, information, reviews, and practice quizzes with rationale helped guide me in knowing where to begin and most importantly assisted me in developing the confidence that I needed to successfully pass the test on my first try! It was such a wonderful accomplishment to successfully pass the test with +13. I would recommend this program to everyone, and I will be purchasing this program again when it is time to take the LCSW test. Thank you again for providing me with support, encouragement, and the confidence that I needed to successfully complete this test!

As someone who was working full-time and just completed their social work Master's, it was wonderful to have a thorough, organized review to guide me in studying for the licensing exam. It completely changed my mindset on how to understand and answer test questions, which I believe helped me to pass the exam!

I passed on my first attempt using TDC. Not only did I pass, but I passed the hardest exam version by 25 points! I was anxious leading up to the exam because I did not seek licensure immediately upon graduation like most. TDC gave me a comprehensive review of everything I learned in my grad school program in an easy to digest format. Other exam programs require a lot of reading from a book and it becomes difficult to hone in on key concepts. TDC fit my learning style of "auditory/kinesthetic learner" and I was able to listen to videos while I exercised, cooked or cleaned and then cement what I studied with the Quick Study handouts. I also appreciated having all of my study materials in "one place." I made a binder of study handouts from TDC and purchased a notebook for lecture notes. These materials went everywhere with me and were essential to my exam prep. Due to the organized structure of TDC studying fit into my life seamlessly and I felt prepared exam day. Thank you so much TDC!

Needed 99 correct, got 127! I studied for exactly 1 month, with most days having about 2-3 hours to study.

This program saved my BUTT! I was so worried about the exam and scared I was going to fail no matter what I did. I passed on the first try! This program was so helpful in addressing those concerns while also allowing me to see how much I have learned.

I was hesitant to purchase the study plan because of the price, but it was worth every dollar! I found that reading textbooks and other study texts were tedious and very unhelpful. I love how TDC breaks it down into manageable chunks, focusing on the most common/important topics, and creating easier ways to remember the material. I passed my LMSW test the first time, after going through the course twice! I will likely use it again when I go to study for my LCSW test in the future!

I am a new mom and was struggling to find time and ways to study. I made the mistake of waiting till the last minute to test but this program helped me with a structure of what and how to study. Although I failed the exam the first time it was only by a point and I do think that nerves had a lot to do with that but TDC reset the program for me and even reached out to me to see how they could assist and support me which I appreciated. If it wasn't for this program I don't think I could have had the motivation or structure to study and pass.

The program helped me increase my score by 16 correct answers, in comparison to my previous failed exam. I passed and additionally got an extra 12 questions correct. The program gave me more confidence in taking the test and also during the exam itself. I went into the exam familiar with many terms. I felt confident that I would do well, and I did. I appreciated the instructor's recommendations for test prep. The pre-exam fruit, carbs and protein helped me feel energized throughout the test.

I am so grateful for TDC for helping me pass the ASWB Masters Exam on my first try! I just moved to NY from California, where the licensing requirements are very different (CA doesn't require a licensing exam right after graduating). I was initially pretty daunted by the task of learning a new state's requirements and preparing myself professionally for the exam and employment, but TDC helped this whole process feel manageable. This is a well put-together study program and it made me feel confident in my abilities going into the test. The audio recordings give a great balance of test taking strategy along with test content. The self-paced structure was really helpful. I liked the ability to check off steps but still return to them later. I took the quizzes and tests as many times as I could and studied the explanations for each answer, including ones I got right. I repeated the whole course 2x as recommended - the first time listening and taking notes, and the second time listening while doing easy activities like washing dishes, cooking, stretching. Reviewing the quick studies the day before helped me feel prepared without overwhelming me, since they are so nicely condensed. I hardly used any materials outside of TDC so I truly owe my passing to them! Highly recommend!!

I passed the exam by 31 points. I felt very prepared!

I needed a score of 99 to pass, and my score was 123! This program was very helpful in thinking through questions and giving me the confidence to succeed.

This course was an excellent resource to prepare for the licensing exam. I passed on my first attempt and probably wouldn't have without this program. The coaches are great and having a guide and a plan helped me feel less overwhelmed by the content.

This review is for the LMSW course. Study the materials... no shortcuts! Train your brain to stay engaged for as much time as it takes to complete the full mock exam. For me that was 2 hours and 5 minutes. I test "fast" but that's just due to my anxiety not due to superior confidence or knowledge. Listen to the pep talk section when your done with the course. The most important advice is "Tolerate Uncertainty". You will have to deal with uncertainty. I got 75% on the full final mock exam. According to the guidelines, that is an indication of being exam ready. I felt like I was ready. When I started going thru the exam, I started to doubt myself. I started to feel like I wasn't sure about my answers (uncertainty). There were stretches of questions where I just felt like I didn't really know what I was doing (uncertainty) but I kept hearing the voice telling me to stay calm, stay focused, keep moving thru, and use the test taking techniques taught in the course. Still I had my doubts; as I progressed thru the exam I started to prepared myself that I was going to get a barely passing grade and in the back of my mind I was thinking I might even fail the exam. My results? I needed 100 correct answers to pass; I got 123 correct! What's the lesson here?! So... follow the course, no shortcuts, trust yourself, train your brain for the long haul, and endure/tolerate uncertainty. The course is well designed, focused, efficient. It takes the guesswork out of what to study and guides you through what is needed to pass the exam. When you see that final grade and you see PASS on your record... I promise you, you wont be thinking, "That course was expensive, I should have bought that other one for $75 less". I strongly recommend this. I will be purchasing the LCSW course when the time comes.

This is such a wonderful program! Well organized, lectures are so helpful and easy to follow. The tips and reminders of what the test is actually testing was so helpful. Thank you for for staying with me until I passed.

I bought all the books and felt completely overwhelmed. I bought this program and within a few weeks I was able to increase my practice exam scores significantly. I love the rationales to all the questions.
