University Offerings



SWES materials offer quick pathways to skills in test-taking  and course development. On request we can arrange training for trainers preparing to use our review books and supplementary materials or we can provide trainers to offer courses.

Students feel well prepared for license exams after utilizing our study guides and other course materials. Many continuing education departments at schools of social work report that their graduating students and others find their course offerings and license preparation classes enjoy growing acceptance in the professional community.

SWES is able to ship materials quickly and at very favorable discounted prices for bulk orders of our review books.    



When we were asked to create a social worker licensing review course in 2007 we reviewed many different study aid offerings available at that time. SWES was the best product we found that mirrored the question format a person sitting for the national exam would experience.
 The content books with the division of topics, practice questions in each topic specifically, along with the 4 practice exams and the mini-exam are some of the best materials on the market today. Our workshop participants have particularly benefited from the detailed explanation to practice items (questions) available to supplement their individual preparation and learning.
We have used SWES as part of our workshop offerings for nearly a decade. We have continued to use the SWES product as it remains one of the best available in preparing future social workers and social work clinicians for licensure.

Our students have found the SWES materials to be extremely effective in helping them prepare for both the NYS LMSW and LCSW exams.   Personally, I have found SWES to be a very easy company to work with and I've appreciated our working relationship and their help over the years.

--Brian Flynn, LCSW Director of Admissions and Student Services Department of Social Work College of Community and Public Affairs Binghamton University

We have been working with Social Work Examination Services (SWES) for 13 years teaching licensure preparation courses using their Comprehensive Study Guides. Our faculty and attendees are very pleased with the study books and practice test booklets. The material enhances confidence in taking the licensure exam.  SWES is very responsive to customer needs and keep the study guide content updated."

--Lesa L. Fichte, LMSW, ACSW, Director of Continuing Education, University at Buffalo School of Social Work

SWES materials have been the ones recommended by our licensing prep course trainers since they began using them with their course in early 2007.
I’ve always been pleased with the responsiveness of the company, fair prices and shipping costs.  We are able to pass the cost along to the course registrants, and enrich the on-site course experience with materials they can use to continue to prepare successfully for the exam.

 --Elizabeth (Liz) Nowicki, ACSW, LCSW, Director, Office of Professional Development, School of Social Work, The University of Texas at Austin
