Comprehensive Study Guide, Masters Level
SWES's three-volume Masters & Clinical Comprehensive Study Guide is designed to respond to Social Work License Exams prepared by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) that are used in all states.
The difference between the Masters and Clinical exams is the number of questions in particular areas and the complexity of the questions. And the preparation for both exams is functionally equivalent, thus our books are constructed to be relevant and adequate to both those studying for the LMSW and LCSW exam.
SWES Comprehensive Study Guides provide a comprehensive review of Group Practice, Individual Clinical Practice, Medications, Ethical issues, Multi cultural Practice, Human Behavior, DSM5, Alcohol and Drug Treatment, Research, Social Policy, Administration and Supervision. More than 1600 practice questions, as well as Four Practice Exams survey the range of issues likely to appear on license exams.
As the exams change, SWES faculty updates and revises the program. SWES’ frequent two-day programs in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, as well as ongoing relationships with trainers and faculties of university schools of social work using our materials and methods, provide SWES faculty with detailed information about how students experience the exams. Frequent contacts with social workers who have taken the exams provide a unique platform for developing, updating and revising the Comprehensive Study Guides and maintaining their timeliness and relevance.
