(PRWEB) February 17, 2015
The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB), the nonprofit organization that owns and maintains the social work licensing examinations and supports the social work regulatory bodies in North America, has announced the release of the ASWB Guide to the Social Work Exams in both print and e-book editions.
The new exam guide was written and designed for the more than 37,000 students and young professionals who prepare for and take the social work licensing exams each year. The unique value of this new guide is that it is the only guide to the social work exams published by ASWB, the organization that creates the exams.
The new exam guide applies to all categories of the social work licensing exam and goes beyond tips on choosing the right answer to help exam candidates understand the exam itself and how the exam questions work. This methodological knowledge can reduce anxiety on test day.
“Understanding the intent and structure of the exam is key to feeling relaxed and confident when the time comes to take it,” said Dwight Hymans, MSW, LCSW, ASWB executive vice president. “The new ASWB exam guide demystifies how the questions work and how candidates can apply their knowledge to the exam. All of this assists greatly with exam preparation, and it helps exam candidates know what to expect.”
