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 passed my LMSW exam with 119 correct answers - 21 points higher than the passing score for my exam (98). I used this program daily for the last 3-4 weeks. The audio component was the most important and helpful resource for me. I would play the sessions on repeat while cooking, cleaning, folding laundry, in my car, etc. I think the more I listened to each session the better that material soaked into my brain. The step-by-step process makes studying for the exam concreate and managable. When I began the course, I failed the pre-test and by the end I was passing the two 85 question pre-tests and mock exam with high 70s-80s. On my actual LMSW exam there were an assortment of macro/social policy questions - so I'm thankful for the new quick studies added. The "Let's talk Ethics" audio was a so informative, it breaks down the dense COE into practical application. Thank you so much!! Such a relief!!!

TDC provided me the study structure I needed to pass on the first try. I got my MSW ten years ago and felt overwhelmed starting the test preparation process. TDC helped me relearn the material and understand the test. Thank you!

I wouldn’t have been able to pass this exam without TDC!!!

TDC helped me conquer this exam! I failed it once prior using others study materials that did not prepare me for the content or the types of questions on the exam. The coaches helped me with not only test material questions but also anxiety related to the exam. I was so nervous being a full time employee, wife, and mother of a 7 month old. Luckily, TDC offered a organized study system that gave me the opportunity to feel confident each time I studied. I have already recommended this course to all of my social work friends. Thank you again, TDC, for helping me pass my masters level exam! I’ll be back in a couple years for the clinical!


When I initially began to use TDC I was frustrated with my test scores. I could not understand why I was scoring so low when I felt that my answers were right. However, in listening to the audio recordings, reviewing the correct answer rationales, it really opened my eyes in to how my thinking in answering questions was flawed. I feel that the way in which TDC is comprehensive and doesn't just focus on memorization is what makes the program a good program to use. In the event I do pursue my LCSW, this will be the program I use. It is amazing and I sincerely feel this program, in addition to some outside tutoring, is the reason why I was able to pass this exam on the third try.

So GRATEFUL to God for this program! Gives great confidence passed with 103 questions correct!

The course was very instrumental in my ability to pass. I have been out of school for decades, and missed being Grandfathered in as an LMSW. I'm glad I did, because I learned so much with the course. It was easier learning the DSM V by going through this course than it would have been trying to go through it on my own.
Thank you.

I have terrible study habits and did not get through the system in its entirety, but the focus of the content gave me enough confidence to get through the test without a problem. I will definitely be using it for the lcsw in a few years

TDC made passing my exam possible. I needed 99 to pass and scored 110. I had failed the exam 2 times using other study materials. I passed on my third attempt but it was my first time taking the exam with TDC. The curriculum is very straight forward and easy to manage. You can also formulate your own study schedule easily with having work schedules or kids ect., which is what I did. I started studying mid July 2018 and studied through till my test on 10/2018. I went through the curriculum two times just to ensure my self confidence. I believe other individuals will do well just going through it one time though. Just make sure you do as the course instructs you to. Not only are the materials helpful, but the coaches are awesome!! I really do not think I would have had the confidence to pass this time with out TDC and I thank my coach for sticking with me and helping me through these last few months to prepare for the test. I am over the moon about passing this test and I plan to use TDC when it comes time to prepare for the clinical exam. Thank you TDC!!!

Great program. Covered all of the area's, and key terms required in order to answer the questions accurately!

I just want to say TDC is the best program that tackle every aspect of the exam. The lectures was great to help enhance the study process.

Excellent program. Very easy to follow. I enjoyed the recordings the most. I could be doing house chores and learn at the same time. I felt fully prepared for the test.

This study system is so amazing.

I am very happy with my score, 20+ points above the minimum score needed to pass in my state. Thank you very much TDC! I was nervous as I get exam anxiety yet I felt confident and kept a positive mental attitude based on my studying and studying materials.

I took the MSW exam before and failed in 2017. I had so much anxiety and shame built up that I was afraid to take it again. It took me over a year to starting studying again. I’m so thankful that I found TDC. Their program was worth the investment in my education and preparing for the retake of this exam. I am proud to say that I finally passed the exam today!!!

I just passed my LMHC exam and am so ecstatic! I don't think I could have done it without TDC!! I initially started studying with a book from my state NASW, but was overwhelmed with material and information and did not know how to organize it to retain the information. TDC takes all the hard work out of it, and makes studying easy! Thank you!! See you in two years for my clinical exam!!!

Today I took the exam and passed!!!! This was my third time taking the exam. After the second attempt, I decided that I couldn’t do this on my own and needed the additional help and structure. After much review of several programs, I went with TDC due to the high success rate and the quick response from Heidi when inquiring about the program. I went into this exam with a completely different mindset and with TDC cheering me on. I’m so thankful for this program and will be back when it comes time to take the LCSW! Now time for some self care! Thanks again TDC.

I passed on the first try. I needed 98 and got 107 correct. I couldn't have done it without TDC! I will be using TDC for my LCSW in a few years!! Worth every penny!! I wish there were audio or power points for the quick studies. I would have loved a matching quiz for medications too. The macro, program planning, and program evaluation quick studies were so similar it became confusing. I wonder if program evaluation and planning can be combined and added to macro to eliminate two quick studies. I am so thankful for this program!!

I passed my LMSW exam! I would highly recommend the TDC program to others. I felt very confident going into the exam and I knew I was going to pass when I clicked submit. Thank you so much to TDC for helping me get organized and understand the material I was learning.

After hearing about TDC I knew I had to get this program. It had such good reviews and success rates. This was the best decision I did because it really helped me understand all the material instead of trying to memorize everything. It's impossible to memorize a text book, thus really does break it down to you so that you can study only on what will be tested. And yes they were correct l, if you story this program you will pass ! I failed the first time I took the LMSW test, I was trying to study from a big text book that I purchased online, used other apps, this didn't help me pass. I passed on my secont attempt after studying the TDC program. I believe that TDC was key to passing my LMSW test.
