Karen: “I passed the test right away.”

balloonsKaren, new LICSW, writes:

I want to thank you. I wanted to study for my LICSW, but once you buy the test from ASWB you have a limited time to study even though I had to wait 3 months to take the test; I wanted a more flexible study plan so someone recommended Social Work Test Prep.

I purchased the SWTP DSM booster and the Ethics booster first, and boy was I glad I did! It was the perfect way to see what I needed to study. There were questions that helped me realize where my strengths and needs were so that I could study and prepare. The links following each question were wonderful. I went back to the tests many times to refresh my memory.

I also purchased the ASWB test later (so nervous about which material to study) and found it was identical to the ones you offer. The flexibility with your site, purchasing options, and access to the tests was probably the most helpful of any practice tests/studying I did.

Customer service was awesome and answered my emails right away--even on the weekend or at night!!

I passed the test right away.


Congratulations, Karen! Great news!

Get started with SWTP boosters and full-length exams. You're next!

Freud Quiz: Fill in the Blanks

freudA quick refresher on Sigmund Freud. Here's a quick theory summary from Lumen Learning, with some crucial pieces missing. Your task: Fill in the blanks.

Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytic theory of personality argues that human behavior is the result of the interactions among three component parts of the mind: the (1.) _____, ______, and ________. This theory, known as Freud's (2.) ___________ theory of personality, places great emphasis on the role of (3.) ___________ psychological conflicts in shaping behavior and personality. Dynamic interactions among these fundamental parts of the mind are thought to progress through five distinct psychosexual stages of development. They are: (4.)  ______________, _______________, _______________, _______________, & _______________.

Have your answers?

The social work licensing exam doesn't include fill-in-the-blanks. The exam, as you probably know by now, consists of 170 stand-alone multiple-choice questions to be completed within four hours. Most of those questions involve than simple fact recall. They're more likely to combine fact recall with a judgement call. For practice on ASWB exam-style questions, check out SWTP's full-length tests.

But first, scroll down for the answers to the Freud quiz…

1. id, ego, superego

2. structural theory of personality

3. unconscious

4. oral, anal, phallic, latency, genital

(For more about the psychosexual stages, see Simply Psychology.)

Jacqueline Passed the Masters Exam - SWTP “Essential”!

Jacqueline SW Exam Pass SheetA great note from the SWTP inbox:

I just received the notification that my account is about to expire...which reminded me that I'd meant to send you an email thanking you for your practice tests.

I passed the master's licensure exam on my first attempt - WOOHOO!!!  After earning my MSW, I spent a number of years doing work that did not require a social work license, and also have spent the last seven years home full time with my young children.  So it has been THIRTEEN years since I last took a social work course.  Your practice exams were essential in my test prep; I likely would not have passed without them.

Congratulations, Jacqueline! Great news! Thanks for writing!
