I took the SWES course before I really studied for the exam. I took the course during a bad snow storm in NYC. The training was wonderful. When I left the training I felt like I was ready to take AND PASS the exam. I read the entire review book and answered the corresponding questions. I took every test in the book and studied for a minimum of 1 1/2 hrs a night. I also used the computerized autotest, it was wonderful. I am recommending this course to all of my coworkers. It was just fabulous; there was even a question from my review material on my test. It was definitely worth every penny and more. I know its been a year since I took and passed the exam but I had to look up the information for a coworker and wanted to share my wonderful experience.
Although I used the SWES home study materials (which are great) I took the exam and failed with a 74. I knew I needed extra help so I registered for your Aug 5 - 6, 2006 weekend course at St. John's University in New York City. This refresher course was a tremendous help to me (I haven't been in school for a while). The instructors were able to break down the material and provide examples which made everything a lot easier to remember. I took my exam today and I passed!!! I can't thank you enough SWES!!
I recently took the licensing exam in Maine for my LMSW and I passed finally! After a few tries I kept on persevering and did it! I found the seminar through SWES to be very supportive and helpful. To be with others who are in the same boat as you are is very comforting. The instructors were outstanding and the textbooks and software were very worthwhile. It really helps to do the questions over and over again, as the content of the multiple choice format becomes clearer. Good luck to everyone.
Hi--I promised to let you know how I did on the Masters level social workexam. I took it last week and scored 83. I was so relieved!!I did find thebooks and the two-day weekend review course to be very helpful!!! I would like to add that I did all thepractice tests several times each, and they helped me to develop theanalytic and ctitical thinking skills to better handle tricky questions andbecome comfortable with the multiple choice format.They also helped me findand strengthen my weaker areas.Also, I appreciated the lecturers at the weekend course very much, and theexpertise, advice and guidance they brought to the sessions. I liked theirhandouts, which summarized and highlighted important points to review andstudy. Aside from the required format, Dr. Roger Sherwood a professor from Hunter School of Social Work, presentedsome test- taking strategies, and relaxation techniques, which were asimportant as the review material.
I just want to thank you for helping me prepare for my LICSW exam which I passed this past weekend! I took your weekend prep course in June and felt like the information we reviewed, along with my 3 months of studying afterwards, enabled me to pass the exam.I can't thank you enough!
