Lavon Passed the Clinical Exam!—SWTP Highly Recommended

Email from Lavon, a new LCSW in Utah:

lavon passed the clinical social work examThank you for your support and your practice exams. It was because of your platform that I passed my LCSW exam two weeks ago. I will continue to recommend your study platform to colleagues.

Preparing for the clinical (or master level) exam can be overwhelming. It's not uncommon to have test anxiety to the point where you end up rescheduling your exam because of not feeling adequately prepared. I think that this feeling stems from not trusting your study preparation program and/or over studying. Additionally, many exam candidates focus on reviewing materials that are not exactly relevant to taking the ASWB exam instead of learning HOW to take the exam.

SWTP prepares you to take the exam by presenting you with materials that are RELEVANT to the ASWB exam along with test questions and rationales that will aide you to confidently take the ASWB exam. Highly recommended.

Congratulations Lavon! Congratulations to all newly licensed social workers! You did it!

“SWTP is the by far the best!!” - Melody

turntablePeople say the nicest things sometimes:

This has been so stressful trying to pass the exam. After searching high and low for "better" study exam materials, there was none to be found. SWTP is the by far the best!! I've spent nearly a 1,000$ looking for the magic bullet, in hindsight, I've only wasted valuable time and money. I will continue to study with SWTP!

Thank you so much,

Melody

Nancy Passed the Clinical Exam!

nancy passed the ny clinical examNancy passed the exam with SWTP. She's in New York and took the clinical exam--the advice she offers is good anywhere and for any level of the exam:

Learn how to break down the questions and focus on what is being asked. What stage is it in terms of Engagement, Assessment, Planning etc.  Know where you are with the patient [the treatment setting] so you can answer appropriately.  Do the questions over and over and keep flash cards of the answers you got wrong. I studied those wrong questions a lot a few days before the test. 

Thanks and congratulations, Nancy!

New ASWB Exam Features

new aswb features - highlight and strikethroughIf you took the ASWB exam in the new year, you may have encountered a couple of new features that you might not have been expecting. In January 2022, the ASWB added both highlighting and strikethrough options to the test interface. What does that mean? It means you can highlight words and phrases within the exam. Or you can digitally cross out whatever you like--most helpfully, answers that you've ruled out.

Different test takers will approach these features different ways. Many are likely to ignore them. Others will mark up every question as they go (potentially wasting valuable time). But most ASWB exam takers are likely to reserve the new highlight and strikethrough features for questions they're not certain about and are marking for review later on (time allowing). The features let you to say to near-future self, "Hey, this highlighted phrase here is essential." Or, "These crossed out answers are not it. Choose between the ones that are left."

Related reminder: Unanswered questions count against you the same way that incorrectly answered questions do. Always select an answer for each of the 170 questions on the ASWB test. You have at least a 25% chance of picking the right answer. That probably goes up to somewhere near 50-50 after you've narrowed down a couple of likely suspects for correct answer--even if you have no idea which of the remaining answers is right. Don't count on there being time remaining to revisit all the questions you weren't sure about the first time through. 

You, the 2022 exam taker, are a pioneer--the first social workers getting to use the new features. Hope you find them useful.

To get a sense of your timing on the exam, take practice tests--lots of them. We've got five complete practice tests for the ASWB exam plus two boosters (one all-ethics, one all-DSM) standing by to help you get ready to get licensed. Do they have the highlighting and strikethrough features? Not yet. Give us a minute. SWTP coders are on the case. The essence of the exam is unchanged: lots and lots of (primarily) vignette questions designed to test your basic social work knowledge, skills, and abilities. To pass takes practice.

Happy studying and good luck on the exam!
