Social Work Exam Prep

I'm so glad I used the TDC program. It helped me narrow in on what I need to learn. I took the test and felt at ease. I highly recommend it! 

I passed with flying colors! TDC prepared me perfectly. I downloaded the program three months before my exam and went through the program three times at various paces until I felt ready! The beauty of the program is that it allows you to study at a pace that fits into your life and covers all of the materials needed to pass the exam. 

Thank you to TDC! I can proudly say I passed my LCSW examination. I am grateful to this program for the support and knowledge provided to me. Thank you!!!

Thank you TDC! I have always struggled with extreme test anxiety and my overall confidence in test taking. This program helped ease that anxiety and make me feel confident throughout the test. I was able to utilize all the skills I learned with TDC, and I know without a doubt I would not have down as well as I did without the program. Highly recommend it to anyone taking their LCSW exam!

TDC is the only study material I used and I passed the ASWB exam my first time! I gave myself about 2 months to study, and went through the material twice. The actual information covered by TDC was helpful, but what was most helpful was learning HOW to take the exam. I definitely heard Amanda saying "put these in order" when I was stuck on a question during the exam, which helped tremendously. I need 103 correct to pass, and I got 125! Thanks TDC!

I cannot recommend the Therapist Development Center enough! It was almost unbelievable how well prepared I was! I felt like we were saturated with material (in a good way) and that the way that it was organized was so helpful. The audio made it so easy to listen to while sitting at my desk at work, while cleaning up or in the car. I also appreciated that Amanda encouraged self-care with studying instead of doing all-day/all-night sessions to cram the information in. I have a learning disability and I normally have a problem with taking too long to complete exams; I finished the test in 3 hours and didn't have to use my ADA accommodation of extended time! Thank you TDC, Amanda and all other staff!

I was referred to TDC by several colleagues all of whom passed on their first try. After months of studying, I took the test yesterday and passed on my first try! I was very happy I was able to extend my membership with TDC free of charge which was helpful as I'm currently 35 weeks pregnant and didn't feel completely ready after my first membership ended. The test was intense but with the help of my coach Heidi and reviewing the audios to and from work, I felt comfortable with the material covered. Thank you TDC!

I PASSED!!!! WOO HOOO!! Thank you TDC for helping me complete my life-long dream of helping others. This was a great tool to utilize during my preparation in taking the exam. I strongly recommend this to anyone wanting to get a thorough look at what the test questions will look like and sound. Thanks again!! 

The distinction that stands out compared to other test prep programs is your mantra: "we teach you how to THINK like a social worker." That made all the difference in the world as far as training my brain to be proactive in thought versus using "test strategies" or "rules of thumb." I very much appreciated the various teaching modalities and found it tremendously helpful having the lectures along with the worksheets in written form. You do a great job of combining all possible learning styles. I used another test prep program before you for 3 months and couldn't pass a mock exam. I passed both full mock exams in your program. This is a transformational moment for me in particular as I have never passed a multiple choice exam in my life and this was the 'mother' of em' all! Thank you for your very thoughtful and seemingly well thought out program. I can't say enough.

I passed! I used other study material and it was extremely inferior compared to TDC. Right when I had planned not to follow through with taking the exam again for the third time, I discovered TDC via NASW Newsletter. As soon as I logged in, I knew your program was going to bring a passing score. Your audio sessions spoke right to my learning style. I’m 15 years out of the classroom, 7 years separated from the profession and over 45 years old, and your program got me a passing score. Thank you! I have referred many to TDC. End of the month, I'll be finishing up my clinical hours and dropping my letter A and joining LCSW family.

I want to thank TDC with the utmost sincerity! I had taken the exam two years ago and was thinking I would not try again due to the nature of stress it put on my life and moving forward in my career. I will be forever grateful I waited until the right "teacher" presented themselves in the form of a system that help me learn, practice and know passing would happen for me this time. Thank you Amanda and Heidi for calming the fear and bringing in rational and reasonable strategies that worked the second time around! Onto LCSW licensure!

If you are studying for your exam I recommend TDC. The study material is clear and concise. I felt so confident taking the exam because of how the study format is laid out. There is no pressure, you set the pace and have coaches along the way. I tell everybody about this study program and to purchase both programs. Thank you Amanda for coming up with this idea and all your support staff. 

I was rushed into taking my LCSW clinical exam, had a little under two weeks to prepare and was told TDC is the best program. I bought the course and studied my little heart out with all the materials provided. I not only felt prepared for the exam, I felt confident about knocking it out of the park. I was so grateful I went with TDC as I could not have been more prepared for the exam in as little time that I had. Oh, and I passed on my first try!!

I loved TDC! It worked well for me for Law and Ethics and just as well for ASWB. I had to stop studying for a few weeks due to an unforeseen death in my family, and I found the program's organization and ability to look back easy and not overwhelming when I began studying again. The question structures for the mock exams I found to be very useful when I took the exam.

Whether you're a first time exam taker, second time or multiple time, you're going to find the program a very positive addition, if not the only study system you will need to succeed come exam day. You often hear that if you don't pass the first time the likelihood of passing on subsequent attempts is lower. This can definitely challenge your ability to overcome test anxiety, but this program takes into account meeting you where you are and supporting you along the way. It embodies the social work profession at its core and your success is their success. I can't recommend the TDC program enough!

I asked multiple social workers in the Bay area what study guide to use to study for the CA Laws & Ethics exam and every single one of them recommended TDC. They said "it's worth every penny" and they were right! Thanks to TDC I felt like I had all the tools and study methods needed to successfully pass the exam. The test was tough but I pushed through and thankfully I passed! Thank you so much, TDC! I'll be back when it's time to study for the LCSW exam! :)

Passed on first attempt! Thanks to TDC who helped keep me focused and organized. I would HIGHLY recommended them! My friend who is going to be sitting for her LPC exam desperately wants a program like this through TDC!

I passed my Master's Level LSW exam! The test results I received after taking the exam said I needed a 98 to pass and I got 120 questions correct. The program helped me to visualize the client being in front of me, what would be said in a meeting to consider what would be done first or next.


Not only did I pass this exam, my knowledge of mandated reporting, obligations towards clients, and how to handle myself in complex ethical situations has significantly increased. I feel more competent in my abilities to make proper judgement calls in both agency and private practice settings. Thank you Therapist Development Center!

Thank you TDC for preparing me for my Law and Ethics exam and the Clinical Social Worker exam. I found the study materials organized well, the quizzes were helpful, the mock exams and rationales prepared me for the actual exam, the study tips were useful, and the access to coaches was key in getting questions answered and for encouragement! Thank you, I could not have passed without this program.
