Faith passed the ASWB Clinical exam--here she is in a celebratory mood. When you pass the LCSW exam, it could be the last big exam--aside from maybe a driver's test--that you ever have to study for. Definitely worth celebrating!
Going in prepared helps boost your chances of passing a lot. You know the basics of the exam, right? 170 questions, four hours, all multiple choice, almost all vignettes, no trick questions.
Knowing how it feels to sit for 170 questions isn't something you can easily imagine. Practice tests, like the ones here at SWTP, take a lot of the guessing away. Some people need snack breaks or bathroom breaks. Others like to plough right through the whole thing. Some get compassion fatigue reading vignette after vignette. They aren't fairy tales. Some get simple reading fatigue. Taking practice tests helps you learn exam content and also learn who you are these days when it comes to a giant exam like this.
There's no right or wrong to snacking, not snacking, tiring, not tiring. It is what it is. But knowing what it is before sitting down for the real thing makes good sense.
Congratulations, Faith, and all recent licensing exam passers at all levels. Way to go.
Still working toward licensure. Everyone's rooting for you. Happy studying and good luck!
