"I passed with an 80%!"

tamie passed the social work examQuick inbox item:

I took the test 2 weeks after buying your prep program. I passed with an 80%!

Congratulations, Tamie!

We're regularly asked, which exams should I get? How long should I study for? If this were an exam question, there wouldn't be enough information to answer. So, our answer is usually, "It depends." It depends upon how much time you have to study, how well you already know the necessary crammable material, how good a test-taker you are, and how good a long-sit focuser you are. (For a four-hour exam, focus is key!) It also depends upon what your exam-prep budget is.

In general, the more practice, the better.

We've got five, complete practice exams. If you sat for each in actual time, that's 20 hours of studying. If you take time to review each question of each exam, that's easily another 20 hours. Plus, if you're following suggested study links to dig in deeper to topics you want a better handle on, that's more time still. Can you get all that done before your  exam date? Great! Have less time? Get fewer exams.

Tamie got her SWTP studying done in two weeks. Now she's a licensed social worker.

Social Work Today: Eye on Electronically Stored Information

communicationFrederic Reamer's Eye on Ethics column is a great way to supplement your social work exam prep. Take a recent column about ethics and electronically stored information. In it, he writes,

During the past couple of years, I have consulted on a number of court and licensing board cases in which formal evidence included copies of social workers' Facebook postings, text messages, e-mail messages, and electronic health records, among other forms of electronic communications. All of these cases focused on ethical issues, including the ways in which social workers managed boundaries, conflicts of interest, confidential information, documentation, and termination of services. In several cases, the social workers were shocked to discover that their digital records could be subpoenaed and introduced as evidence against them.

The column continues with several examples of email and other ecommunication serving to help licensing boards press cases of social worker malpractice. Could any of these serve as the backbone of a question on the social work licensing exam? Sure could!

If you're looking for a  break from practice questions and have some extra reading time, take a look at the column archives. There's lots of exam fodder sitting there. Have at it.

Happy studying and good luck on the exam!
