Free ASWB Exam Practice Question: Bipolar Disorder

bipolar disorder severity Hello ASWB exam preppers. Here's a free question--one that didn't make the cut to be included in our full-length practice, since it's a little too simple and info-based. See how you do.

The typical age of onset for bipolar disorder is:

A. Mid-40s.
B. Mid-20s.
C. The teenage years.
D. Early childhood.

What do you think? Experience may be a guide here. When did your clients first report bipolar symptoms? Is it a pervasive, lifelong disorder or something that can emerge later? If later, when do most late-emerging mental health disorders emerge? Early childhood's too early. Mid-40s? Too late. That leaves two best answers.  Teens or 20s.

So which is it?

The answer: Although bipolar disorder can be diagnosed in adolescence or even childhood, the average age of onset is 25. So B is the correct answer.

Emily Passed the ASWB Exam

emily passed the ASWB examFrom newly licensed social worker, Emily:

I can't thank you enough for your program. I  passed my clinical exam on the first attempt!  I also used your exams when I took my Master's level exam (and passed).  Your program was very helpful in understanding how the questions might be worded and what important information I needed to examine in the question as well as preparing for the exam in general.  It also doesn't hurt that you give extra coupon codes to help us "high" salaried social workers purchase your exams so that we can continue to grow professionally!!! 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  I have already recommended you to two other SW's that will be taking their clinical exam soon. 

If you are on the fence about purchasing, I highly recommend it!

Congratulations, Emily! And thanks!
