Still unsure if our social work ASWB Masters Level Exam Study Guide is right for you?

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 am so grateful that I made the decision to pay for this program. TDC gave me the confidence and the strategies that I needed to pass the LMSW. The audios and the Quick Studies were super helpful. The study material that I used previously was too much and was overwhelming. Amanda's strategies for reading and answering the questions were the most helpful. I took my time and read the question word for word. The exam required 99 correct answers and I answered 107 correctly. I will be recommending this program to all of my social work friends who are preparing to take the exam. Thank you again!!

Can't speak highly enough of this program!! I took the LMSW exam twice and FAILED before deciding to purchase the study course from TDC. Although I was very skeptical at first, thinking how is an online program going to get me prepared, but I am SO THANKFUL I decided to use this program. I passed my exam with four questions to spare and feel like I have to credit my success to TDC. Being someone who suffers from extreme test anxiety, I knew that my third chance was really my last shot before my employer had to step in so the pressure was on. I felt so confident in my answer choices and the way I learned to navigate the reason based questions I feel like was the most helpful! Would HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone on the fence or just needing assistance in studying. Will use the clinical prep course when preparing for my LCSW! THANK YOU TDC!!

I just want to say a BIG thank you to the whole team at Therapist Development Center. When I first started this program, I was anxious because I didn't feel prepared at all to take this exam. After 3 months of studying, I didn't just review a large amount of material, I learned essential skills to carry with me into the testing center. This program gave me the tools that I needed to walk into the testing center and say confidently, "I will pass because I know this stuff!". To anyone that has test anxiety like I do, I highly recommend this program without hesitation. I couldn't have passed on my first try without it!

I had taken the LMSW exam twice and thanks to TDC, third times a charm and I passed. I have never felt so relieved. I loved having the ability to feel that someone was rooting for me with this program, I was not alone in my studying and it definitely boosted my confidence to know that TDC was there for me. I plan on using TDC for when I plan on getting my LCSW. I have already recommended this program to a friend.

I was overwhelmed at first when I started taking the exam. There is so much information to cover and I only has 2 months to study. TDC helped a lot because it was well structured and organized. You cover all the areas that were on the exam. I listened to the audios in my car when traveling for work I think that really helped. The quizzes and worksheets helped a lot also and much of the info was on the exam.
Thank you TDC and Thank you for supporting the Veterans!!!

On 10/24/19, at 85 years of age, I passed the Association of Social Work Boards Masters Examination on my first try. My temporary status as a Licensed Master Social Worker will become permanent as soon as the NY State Office of Licensing gets the results. The exam I took required 98 correct answers to pass. I answered 110 items correctly.
I went through the study program three times, feeling more competent and confident each time. Learning how to approach the test was one of the most important elements for me. Thinking through what was being asked for allowed me to focus. After the first few questions, I was fully absorbed with the process and did not feel anxious at all. I was able to complete the exam in 3 hours, and to thoroughly review answers I had marked for review. I am convinced that I could not have passed the exam without this program of preparation.
For me, graduating from an online social work program in May and passing my licensure exam yesterday completes an educational journey I never completed when I left graduate school 59 years ago. I am very proud of what I have accomplished . Thank you so much for all your help.

I only used TDC study material and it was sufficient! What a great program! I used the same material the first time I took the test, but only studied for 4 days. This time around, I worked the program more than 10x. and passed! I will be using TDC for my LCSW exam as well! Thank you!!

I studied for a little over 2 months and passed my LMSW exam on the 1st try! I felt confident during the exam since it covered most of what I had studied in this program. Definitely recommend The Therapist Development Center!

Outstanding program for study prep. Engaged multiple methods for learning, everything connects together, upbeat/positive/encouraging! Great structure to this program as well. I would highly recommend TDC.

I can honestly say that TDC was the primary reason I passed my LMSW exam, it has everything you need to pass and it does not overwhelm you with extra information. Will definitely use it for my LCSW!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This program helped me tremendously!

I believe that studying with TDC helped me feel a lot more prepared than if I had studied with any other program. I'm certain it also helped me gain the confidence I needed to pass the Master exam. The morning of the exam I woke up feeling so sure that I would pass, I kept telling myself "I'm picking up my license today" rather than "Hopefully I pass this exam today".

My program Director at my place of employment recommended this program to me for my LMSW. So as usual, I looked into it to weigh it's success rate and compare it with other programs. I was impressed, so I enrolled and off I went. The preparation provided in TDC is solid, and to the best of my knowledge, best to none. I sat for my exam on 10/10/19 and passed on the first attempt. I LOVED the structure of the program, from how to get started, to the final pep talk. The rationales were top notch and they really helped me in narrowing down the answers (especially when I wasn't 100% sure of a choice. When I'm ready for my Clinical Licensure exam, I'm certain i'll be knocking on the TDC door.

I highly recommend the TDC for someone who is studying for his/ her LMSW exam. All the materials are very good. The audios help me a lot to learn all the information necessary. The final Mock help me to see what I needed to review and managing my time during the exam.

I failed my first time by 1 point. I felt so discouraged and heard about the LMSW/LCSW exam study group on facebook. So many people recommended using TDC. I looked into TDC and decided to purchase it. My employers helped me get the waiver to take the LMSW sooner than the 90 days since I failed by 1 point and my job was in jeopardy. I had to terminate with my clients for the mean time. Once the waiver was approved, I scheduled my test for 2 weeks away. I was not sure if I was going to be able to get through the entire TDC material in two weeks, but I used the breakdown of study time and set it up so I would finish the day before my exam. I got through all of the material in two weeks by designating time each day to study. I also continued to practice self-care and do things I enjoy as suggested, but I was committed and motivated to pass! Thank you TDC for all of your help!

Third time is a charm and I am evidence of that. Overall, I took the Masters level exam three times, but this was the first time I took the exam using TDC; now I wish someone told me about the program sooner! I walked in the testing center with confidence and walked out crying tears of joy knowing that I finally passed the exam. I feel like a weight has been FINALLY lifted and it's the best feeling ever! I will using TDC when I take the LCSW. Thank you for everything, TDC!!!!!

I don't think I could have passed without the help of TDC. The study schedule, quizzes and everything really helped me focus and prepare.

I had failed the test my first time. I tried a program but felt overwhelmed and like the program had no structure for me. TDC was a game changer. Everything is organized and you are not bombarded with so much information. The material TDC provides is what you find on the test. It is an amazing program that is simple and straightforward. I owe part of my new LCSW title to TDC!

The TDC program was so structured. I was looking for a structured study program that taught me how to study for the exam and what to look for when reading test questions. When I began to study for the exam I did not know where to start and how to study for an exam that you must know everything. TDC definitely covered all the basis. Thank you so much! I highly recommend this program.

TDC did the job! I found out I was an audio learner with TDC and every single penny spent on this program was worth it. I failed my first attempt and I did not have a choice to fail again. Thank you TDC for all the time and effort spent creating this program for individuals like myself! I am officially an LMSW and it feels like a dream!
