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

TDC helped me more than any other study materials/programs. TDC really breaks everything down for you, which enables you to retain all of the information better. TDC taught me more than the other study materials/programs I had previously used. Furthermore, TDC has more than other study materials/programs that just have Practice Quizzes & Tests, since TDC also has Quick Studies, Audio Lectures, and Handouts. TDC also covers How to Think and Types of Questions. TDC had great rationales as well, which enables you to better understand everything. If you're considering buying TDC, you should, since it is what helped me to pass my LMSW Exam! I've already recommended TDC to someone, who now has TDC. I'll be recommending TDC to everyone!

The truth is there are no shortcuts to passing the LMSW exam - no tricks will get you a license. What you need is a program to help you think and reason in a way that helps you pass the exam. That’s exactly what TDC does! Tgey helped me pass the LMSW on my first attempt! Thank you TDC! I’ll be back when it’s time to take my LCSW!

I have worked for 27 years in the social work field. I accidentally let my licensed lapse and was required to reapply with the state which included taking the exam again. Although I work in the field I do not work with a variety of populations and have been out of school for many years. I was concerned about my lack of specific knowledge in all areas that would be covered by the test. I do not think I would have been able to pass this exam without this course. i really appreciated the variety of learning formats. The most helpful aspect was learning how to approach questions. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone preparing for this exam.

This study system is AMAZING!!! I was two weeks before my exam date, when I felt that none of the study exam guides, books, flash cards, text books etc. that I bought prepared me enough to feel confident in taking and passing the exam. I felt completely overwhelmed and then I remembered seeing this program on my Pinterest account and signed up on 6/6. I went through the entire program twice, listening to the lectures, reading the quick studies and taking the quizzes (yes- all in the matter of two weeks) and I am proud to say that I passed my LMSW exam on 6/24, and this was my first time taking the exam. This program gives you the reasoning based skills you need in order to pass this exam, tips to lessen test anxiety and confidence in learning the content that is pertinent for the exam. This program goes over all the content you need to pass this exam and I honestly do not think I would have passed without using this program. I will be using this program again for my LCSW exam later down the road. This program is the ONLY guide/study materials that you will need- honestly. Huge thank you to the Therapist Development Center and Amanda for this comprehensive study program.

I have a mental health condition that is constantly interfering with everyday life. This program allowed me to study, focus, and concentrate on the test in a way that was flexable and easy for me. I was able to ask for more time when I needed it and I passed my test with a great score!! I will use this program time and time again for my other exams in the future.

Thank you TDC!!! I PASSED!!! felt SOO prepared walking in with using this program. The program worked perfectly with my work schedule, and now I can face the world with my LMSW! You guys rock! I needed a 99 and got 105 correct. I felt prepared and all thanks to TDC! I will be using this program from my LCSW! Ahhh!! It’s so surreal!

TDC is a great program! It is well structured and very detailed. I feel that the audio recordings were the most helpful in me learning information and understanding the rationales. I have been recommending this program to everyone planning to take the exam. Thank you TDC!!

I think TDC prepared me well to pass the exam. Follow the plan- I repeated it twice, which I would recommend. I finished in 3 hours 15 minutes even with time to review marked questions! I only wanted to pay and take the test once and it prepared me well.

I failed the LMSW exam twice. The first time, I took it just a couple months out of school and was confident Ihad the knowledge to pass. I barely studied and ended up failing. The second time I took the exam I bought a book to study with. I read through the book, but I did not seem to retain much of the wide variety of and very detailed information that was in the book... I failed again. After this time, I got online searching for answers. I wanted something that would give me the knowledge I needed to pass the exam! That is when I found TDC. With TDC, I was given not only the knowledge but also the mindset of how to pass. TDC is not just a bunch of readings, it has material that caters to visual and audio learners and that focuses on exactly what you need to know for the test. I have already recommended this program to those I know getting ready to take the LMSW exam, and I plan to use it again when I take the LCSW exam! TDC is amazing!

Great program

I was on my second attempt when I purchased TDC. I felt TDC was more complete than the other programs I had purchased in the past. I felt TDC really broke down the concepts for better understanding. What really stood out about TDC is the motto: "we are with you until you pass". That really stood out to me. No other program gives you that kind of reassurance. Thank you again to TDC creators and Emily for being an excellent coach!

I only study for a week and half for the LMSW exam and TDC really was effective in putting the material into digestible parts. I have not used any other ways to study and only used materials provided to me by TDC. I needed a 98 to pass and answered 116 questions correctly. I truly believe that with the time I had to study (1.5 to 2 weeks) without TDC, I would not have passed. Thank you all so much! I will be utilizing this program when it is time for me to take the LCSW exam.

I started Studying in Feb 2019. I am an auditory learner and I knew I needed a program that would cater to my learning needs. I took my time and reviewed the material more than once. I felt confident going into the test, and on questions where I wasn't sure, I was able to make educated guesses based on what I had learned. The questions that didn't make sense really stood out. I needed a 99 to pass and I received a score of 109 :). I completed self-talk throughout the whole exam and only changed about 5 questions that I flagged.

The Therapist Development Centered assisted me in reframing my study approach. I was once unorganized in how I structured my study time but with the strategic format that TDC provided I felt confident and prepared throughout the process. TDC is worth the investment! Thank you for your services!

I took the ASWB for the first time in February 2019 and failed by 14 points. A friend told me about this program and how she passed her second time. I just took the exam and passed with a score of 107 out of 99 I scored 8 point higher than needed to pass all thanks to this amazing program. I now have more job opportunities and things are going great ! I will be back for my clinical in three years : )

Thank you so much, TDC family, for your guidance and support in helping me pass the exam. Listening to lectures and taking notes was such a great way to study. This is truly the best program I have ever used. Thanks again for everything you all did to help me succeed!

6 weeks ago I was reading reviews like the one I'm about to write. I'm here to tell you that if I passed this test (LMSW), anyone can. I've been totally out of the field for (ready...) more than TEN years! That's right...due to a million reasons (namely life), I left social work. I graduated with my MSW in 2007 and got hired right out of school. I foolishly delayed taking the test. When I did take it in 2009, I failed, which sealed the deal for me going a different way on the career path. During the past 10 years I always regretted that choice. I knew where my heart was and was so mad at myself for giving up. I had half heartedly researched the issue (being out of school for so long and endeavoring to take the test) and didn't get good feedback. I just didn't think it was possible to relearn my entire two year program so many years later to try to conquer this test. WELL! Enter TCD. First of all, it just felt right, like they spoke my language... so I gave it a shot. When I took the very first 50 question exam...I got 46%. That's right, I got more than half of the questions wrong. This was a mere six weeks ago. I thought i was doomed. But the minute I started the lectures (by far my favorite part of the program) and taking notes and remembering the style of the test...it all started to (pretty easily) come back to me. This is the ONLY system that doesn't try to scare you with a RIDICULOUS amount of memorization. Instead, it is calmly covered in a very systematic, non-threatening way. I went through the course in two weeks, then did it all over again in another two weeks. That test I got a 46% on? I got a 90% the second time around. I listened to Amanda's tips (imperative) for attacking the exam again and again. Well...today, 10 years after my first attempt, I passed with flying colors!! It feels like one of the greatest accomplishments of my life to date, especially because I let it intimidate me for a decade. I'm telling you...all you have to do is follow the program exactly as it is prescribed and you will see for yourself. THANK YOU AMANDA and everyone at TDC!!

When I started studying for the LMSW I was a little overwhelmed at the amount of material and not knowing exactly how to manage it all. I was reminded of TDC by a former professor and I am so glad I reached out for the study material. The online material - study outline, Top 50 topics, quizzes, audio, and mock exams really helped to put everything in perspective. Listening to the audio and having someone explain everything was especially helpful. I only had one month to study and I could not have passed without TDC. I would strongly recommend this study system to others.

The program created a good foundation for understanding the test and how to mentally prepare for it.

I graduated with my MSSW in 2013, from an Administration track and so I did not have a solid grasp of the clinical aspect of Social Work. Also,I worked for 5 years in Program Management and Evaluation, so I did not have much professional experience in clinical social work. I decided now to take my LMSW exam considering that I was planning to move out of New York very soon, and had already been granted approval by NYS to sit for the exam. I didn't want to have to restart the process of getting approval in another state. I knew that this was a very sensitive situation, I needed to pass on my first attempt, and so I needed a system with a high success rate. After reading many positive reviews about TDC, I went ahead and purchased the study system, and drove right in. I studied through the entire system once, and then went over several areas multiple times. I took my exam nearly two months after starting the study system, needed a 98 to pass, and I scored 120.
