About the Study Supplement – The Strategic Guide to the ASWB Exam

What is The Strategic Guide to the ASWB Exam?
The Strategic Guide to the ASWB Exam is a supplemental study guide that focuses solely on multiple choice test strategy. The supplement is specific to the ASWB social work exam. It provides a step-by-step dissection of the process that should be used to choose the correct answer along with hundreds of sample questions to practice your new skills. Although the supplement relates to social work material, it should not be used as your primary study tool. The intent of this supplement is to help those test takers who want to improve their scores. This supplement does not contain the review material on the exam topics. A comprehensive review of all exam topics is covered in The Complete Guide to Social Work.

What is the difference between the Study Guide and the Study Supplement?
The Study Guide should be used as your primary resource for preparation for the ASWB exam as it contains review summaries of all of the material tested on the exam along with study questions and practice exam questions to test your knowledge. The Study Supplement focuses only on the multiple choice test taking strategy for the ASWB exam. It was designed for those test takers who want to improve their score and enhance their multiple choice taking skills.

Do I need both the Study Guide and the Study Supplement?
You do not need both the Study Guide and the Study Supplement. The Study Guide is the only resource that you should need to prepare for the exam. Many individuals, however, need extra help with multiple choice test taking strategy and are looking for ways to increase their scores.

Can I purchase just the Study Supplement?
If you already have the Study Guide, you can purchase just the Study Supplement. The Study Supplement was not intended to be used as the primary source for preparing for the exam. It does not cover all of the information that is tested on the exam and was designed solely to address test taking strategy for the ASWB exam.
