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 current 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.

The Licensing Examination Preparation Book and Booklet: Comprehensive Study Guide (Masters, Clinical, Adv.Generalist) Version 9.0 is required for the course. If you need to order these books there is a $164 charge for the current 3-volume study book set. (If you have these book but are unsure of the version check the book publication date can be found near the bottom of the first page after you open the cover.) Books will be shipped directly to you! In order to receive your books on time please register by November 23, 2020. To purchase the course and the books, click here to register for the bundle.

**If a participant should not pass the exam, they may retake the course at no additional cost by providing exam pass/fail documentation.
