"I took the test and passed on the first try! I utilized multiple study techniques, but this site helped the most in preparing myself for the LCSW."
Congratulations, Christine, and all recently licensed social workers!
What's it take to pass the ASWB exam on the first try?
Thoroughly prepare: To pass the ASWB exam, you need to have a solid understanding of social work concepts, theories, and practices. Review the exam content outline, study the relevant materials, and take practice tests to identify your strengths and weaknesses.
Manage your time: The ASWB exam is timed, so it's essential to manage your time effectively during the exam. Make sure to pace yourself, so you have enough time to complete all the questions. If you get stuck on a difficult question, move on and come back to it later.
Stay focused: During the exam, it's essential to stay focused and avoid distractions. Find a quiet, comfortable place to take the exam, and turn off your phone and other devices that could distract you.
Stay calm and confident: Feeling anxious or stressed can negatively impact your performance on the ASWB exam. Stay calm, take deep breaths, and approach each question with confidence. Remember, you have prepared for this exam, and you are capable of passing it.
Read and understand the questions carefully: To avoid mistakes, make sure to read and understand the questions carefully before answering them. Pay attention to keywords, such as "not," "first," "best," "always," or "usually," as they can change the meaning of the question.
Use test-taking strategies: Use strategies such as eliminating answer choices that you know are incorrect, making educated guesses, and using the process of elimination to increase your chances of selecting the correct answer.
