Last month I attempted to take the social work exam and I had not taken a social work class or exam since 1987. This post is to help others on how I did it. I went on Amazon and I purchased several study guides, each with practice tests and I also bought a set of flash cards. I also paid for a 90 day subscription to access to practice tests online. I honestly only found the time to do these tests in study mode, not actual/time mode. Having said all of this, it was the combination of the above that helped me pass the exam the first time after 30 years being out of college. I have the books, flash cards, etc and I am willing to sell them if any of you are interested. I feel like the more questions I had access too the better for this exam. I did not think the exam was easy, I honestly was freaking out a bit as I wasn’t 100 percent sure on the first question. I was the oldest person in the room taking an exam and I was the last to leave. It was an eye opener and one that I will never want to have to do again, so glad I passed the first time as while I was taking it I was thinking to myself “what the heck was I thinking”. I had no difficulties getting through the test in 4 hours. I started feeling a bit better about many of the answers I chose after going through the test a second time. I narrowed down most questions to two answers but it was from those two that I often thought to myself if could go either way, depending upon the circumstances truly not listed/covered in the question. But, I just kept referring myself back to practice questions that I did in exam mode. Prior to the exam I checked in with passport, and social security card, they took my phone from me and put it in a sealed envelope but then gave it back to me to put in my purse but they said they had to open it after the exam, I couldn’t. I locked my purse in a locker with their staff watching me and I took off my longer necklace around my neck per his instructions too. They scanned each palm of mine at least 5 times before I could even enter the exam area. They re-scanned them again on my way out, proof that it was me that entered and took the exam. I was so relieved to see the YOU PASSED on the screen after I exited out of the exam. 170 questions, 20 are not counted, they are just sample text questions the board is trying to decide whether to use on future exams, and I had read that most need 93 to 106 right, depending upon the difficulty of the test you get. I passed the exam by 11:)
