Once upon a
time--just a few years back--there was no difficulty locating
people who frowned upon using Wikipedia as a reliable source of
information. "Crowd-sourced" seemed to equal "iffy." Things change
fast. While some professors may not okay Wikipedia in a paper's
bibliography, there's no reason you can't lean on the site for lots
of valuable wisdom, particularly all things social work exam.
Ready to dig in and get going on the road to licensure? Here's a
good place to start: Wikipedia's Outline
of Psychology. Linked from this master page, good summaries
plus detailed explanations about loads of topics that warrant
taking a look at in advance of the big exam. What's Gestalt
Psychology? How do you get all those terms in behaviorism straight?
Just what did Freud actually say? Answers await. Also take a look
at the site's Social Work page--particularly Social
Work: Practice. Trying to sort out the difference between
existential, humanistic, and feminist therapies? Click away!
Budget, speed, and clarity-loving exam-preppers may very likely
find that they prefer Wikipedia to bulky books of exam prep
material. Wikipedia costs nothing (zero dollars!), allows fast and
focused access to the information you're seeking, and generally
includes nice summaries of key information at the top of each topic
Once upon a time is in the past. Crowd-sourcing, at least in
Wikipedia's case, is working. So get clicking, get learning, and
good luck on the exam!
