Clinical Exam Prep

Here's another set of five ASWB exam questions on video set to music. How well can you stay focused and answer the questions as they roll by in the time allotted? Like the exam itself, there can be a lot of text containing a lot of information in a single exam outline.

For many who struggle with passing the exam, reading speed and/or comprehension are the real obstacles-not social work savvy. You can know the DSM, Code of Ethics, and every last one of your MSW textbooks inside-out. If you aren't able to read through a paragraph-long vignette, plus four sometimes-overlong answers, and decide on a correct answer in about a minute-and-a-half, the exam can make trouble for you. That's where lots and lots of practice comes in.

The timer on the video is set faster than that. On the social work exam, you'll face 170 questions over four hours (240 minutes). If you do the math (240/170), you get 1.41 minutes per question.

See how you do with the sped-up timer. (You can always hit pause if it's too quick.) If you can get these questions answered in the time given in the video, you're in good shape.
