Course Description

Our Licensure Exam Review Prep Course helps you prepare for your social work licensure exam by reviewing the structure and content of the exam, as well as strategies for test-taking. This includes reviewing sample questions and learning how to correctly interpret them, and learning how to avoid the most common pitfalls in order to increase your competence and confidence.

This course does not review specific content areas in depth; rather, it outlines the areas of knowledge, skills, and aptitudes that are covered on the exam, and discusses how you may asked about those areas on the exam. 

This course is for ALL exam categories; Bachelors, Masters, Advanced Generalist, and Clinical.

The social work exam guide

Your registration includes your own hard copy of the Third Edition social work exam guide by Dawn Apgar (published by Springer Publishing; $95 retail value), which comes with an access code to an electronic guide and study tools. This guide offers a wealth of test-taking strategies to foster exam confidence; includes a practice test that mirrors the exam (with explanations of the correct answers); and helps you identify weak areas so you will know what to focus on to pass the licensure exam.
