And remember, you probably already know most of what you need to know for the exam. The stuff you don't know yet is easily learned. Reread the NASW Code of Ethics. Brush up on key DSM categories (the ones you'd find in front-line social work--the ones that you've been charting). Do practice questions. Keep it simple.
Here are some places to get started:
- Pass the ASWB Exam (you're there!; see the sidebar for some essential links--to the ASWB, to the NASW Code of Ethics, to online DSMs... Plenty more in posts.)
- SWTP's Free Exam Study Guide (includes a sections on exam-taking rules of thumb, anxiety management, and essential review, plus free practice questions)
- Wikipedia (of course!)
- The Encyclopedia of Social Work (it's like the Social Work Dictionary exploded; free access slated to end after Sept. 9, '13)
Have fun and good luck!
