Preparing for the LMSW Exam
Instructor: Holly Fancher | Wednesdays 6:00pm - 8:00pm | Jan. 29; Feb. 5, 19, 26; Mar. 5, 12 | Course Code: SWEXLMSW/1
Sundays 11:00am - 1:00pm | Feb. 2, 9, 23, Mar. 2, 9, 16 | $125 | Course Code: SWEXLMSW/2 | *Open only to Silberman alumni and students.
In order to pass the LMSW exam you need to know more than the content covered on the exam. You need to practice integrating test-taking strategies and stress reduction techniques with your theoretical and practical knowledge of social work. This course does not teach “to” the test; rather it teaches the skills and knowledge that you need to be successful “on” the test. In other words, these classes are not a continuation of your coursework. They are practice sessions using questions that closely mirror the exam which you answer and discuss in class. This course helps you understand exactly what to expect, making for a much less stressful experience.
- Recall and review social work knowledge and skills.
- Refine your capacity to apply test-taking strategies to the material.
- Learn ways to recharge your mind and maintain a positive focus.
- Provide 12 hours of practice in order for you to integrate the above three aspects of the test preparation process.
