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 ASWB Masters Level Exam Study Guide can be daunting.

It has been our experience that many social workers come to us after using other ASWB Masters Level Exam Study Guides and failing.  Frustrated and defeated, they worry that they won’t ever be able to pass the 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.

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

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.

Although I did not really use Therapist Development Center for the third time, all of my review and thinking was devoted to this when I was studying for my test for the second time. Thank you for outlining all of the information and continuing to encourage me to get that passing score!

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.

I felt so lost on what to study before I found your program. This helped me focus on what I needed to know. The quick studies and quizzes were the best! Thank you!!

Great program. I felt well prepared after going through the program as prescribed...the online lectures, notes, quizzes,and quick study sheets were great and made the program manageable and comprehensive.

TDC is honestly the greatest study program for tackling the Social Work Master Level Exam. It really brings out the clinician in you and gives you a better perspective on how to answer each question. I definitely recommend this program. Thank you TDC!

I passed my LMSW exam on the second try(first time using TDC) The program was very well structured, and allowed me to gain the confidence needed to pass the exam. My score improved significantly from the first time thanks to TDC! I highly recommend this program. I plan to come back when preparing for my LCSW. Thank you TDC!

TDC literally saved me!

I was so overwhelmed with an overload of study material - bootcamp files, prep books, practice tests, random audio files - you name it, I had it all. It got to a point where I realized that I was gathering materials more than doing much studying. And even if I DID try studying, I didn't know where to start or how to organize myself.

A friend told me about TDC and it was exactly what I needed: clear, organized steps that allowed you to approach the studying with confidence and pace yourself however it works for you. I passed on my first try with only a few weeks of the program. The lectures and quick studies were a game changer for me and when it came to the test day, my nerves quickly subsided when I realized that the questions had a strong familiarity to me.

I'll be back in a few years for the clinical exam!!

Three months ago I failed my first attempt to pass the LMSW exam. My friend recommended "Therapist Development Center" to help me prepare for my second attempt. Today, 5/21/2019, I successfully passed the LMSW exam. The audio section of this course made it easier for me to learn the material. The several quizzes and exams were challenging, but they push me to focus on areas I needed to improve on. Thank you for this course. (-:

My experience with TDC was great. The material and audio recordings really helped me review for the exam at my own pace. Amanda and Emily do a great job of explaining and walking you through the subjects. I'm so glad I used TDC to study for the exam.

I am very proud that I passed the exam. I took the exam several times in the past and used several different study materials but was unsuccessful. I would highly recommend this program to someone who graduated years ago like myself and the material is not fresh. The program was like all my graduate school information compiled into a course. I am very thankful to the therapist who responded to every question that I e-mailed. Thank you Again.

TDC program is an amazing program! The material is already structured for you- so they take the work out of planning and schedule study time, what to study and where to start! I was initially apprehensive due to being so busy with finishing up grad school that I didn't feel that I gave myself enough dedicated study time. Nonetheless, I was able to multi-task within the 3 months of my last semester of grad school and study! YIKES :D I think the program structuring made ALL the difference! I'll definitely use the program for my next phase of licensure! People have already been asking what program I used and I proudly tell them TDC! I also see from time to time some people are cautious of the program due to cost, but all I can say is- You get what you pay for!!!! Huge THANKS TDC!!!!

I know for certain I would have not passed if I did not use TDC, this program really helped me get into the right mindset and helped me determine the best answer to pick when I did not know it at first.

Before finding out about TDC, I was traveling to NYC to attend day long study workshops along with purchasing textbooks/ flashcards to study with. I took the exam 4 times before I tried out TDC. I completed the TDC program, putting much focus onto the practice tests and quizzes until I fully understood the logic behind each answer to the questions. Without TDC, I would not be able to say that I finally passed the LMSW exam.

I took the LMSW test on February 2019, I failed. My test score was 91, I was 6 points away from passing. English is my second language, I am from Mexico and I came to the United States in 2008. I needed study material that I am able to understand, and comprehend. Therapist Development Center (TDC) was exactly what I needed. I wrote all the study materials, listen to the podcasts daily, and first and foremost comprehending the FIRST and NEXT questions. My first test score was 91 and the second test score was 123. An increased of 32 points!!! I will definitely use TDC for my LCSW test. Thank you for setting a program that supports people's educational needs. Gracias TDC .

A year out of my Master’s program and working full time, I tried to study using just a prep book. I was unmotivated, my study time was unstructured, and I knew I was not processing the material properly. TDC was an investment, but it came highly recommended and I needed to get the job done right, as work was anticipating my licensure. I enjoyed the material and the way it was taught. I felt confident going into the course and left knowing that TDC has more than prepared me to succeed in knowing the material for the test, how to think for the test, how to tackle the test and how to pass the test.

I took my exam back in January and studied using different materials. It was very overwhelming and I did not feel like I grasped the content. I failed the exam by 1 point. I felt so defeated. Afterwards, I found TDC via online search and immediately found the content easy to understand and practical. The study system really helped me understand how to reason through the questions to find the right answer and helped me think like a social worker. The day of the exam, I still felt nervous and unprepared as I didn't have time to complete the full mock exam prior to the real exam. It took me the full 4 hours to complete the exam on the test day as I really focused on each question - word for word. The months of studying and preparing was worth it!! I only needed 98 to pass and I answered 112 correctly. I was shocked and SO relieved! I will definitely be using this program for my LCSW exam!! Thank you, TDC!!!

I know that I am going to retake the test in July 2019 and I am going to put more effort into studying. I felt that what I perceived to be the most logic answer wasn't it I feel this time I am spending studying will be better. I took my test in A.ug.2018 I am starting from scratch Thank you
