Description

Gain confidence, skills and knowledge with our two-day intensive review preparation program for the LMSW and LCSW state licensing exams. For over 12 years, our instructors have been teaching this hands-on course, and they receive excellent evaluations.

Participants will be provided with the newly revised three volume Social Work Examination Services Comprehensive Study Guide with 1400 sample questions and practice tests. Course content consists of comprehensive reviews of social work practice, policy, theory and test taking techniques to increase speed and accuracy. The primary goal in preparing for the licensing exam is to develop skills in analyzing and answering multiple-choice questions. The key to passing is to focus on strategies for reading and answering different types of queries, and increase skills in carefully reading and parsing what the questions are asking. Practice questions condition responses and reduce test anxiety, a major contributor to poor test performance.

**If a participant should not pass the exam, they may retake the course at no additional cost by providing exam pass/fail documentation. If a new set of books is needed, there is a $140 charge for the current 3-volume study book set. (The book publication date can be found near the bottom of the first page inside cover.)

This licensure preparation program and materials associated with it were not included in the Association of Social Work Boards’ Approved Continuing Education (ACE) review and are not approved by ASWB for social work continuing education nor endorsed by ASWB in any manner.
