Idelle Datlof, LISW-S, who has been teaching and tutoring social workers to prepare for the exam since June 2009, has developed a three-part learning plan to offer test-takers a unique approach for their preparation. First, take the online course and listen to it as often as you need to. You will have access to the course for 30 days. Review, review, review, and commit key facts and concepts to memory. Next, transform this knowledge into skill by answering sample questions which test your ability to identify how social workers practice. In addition, learn how the test questions are constructed, how to choose between two good answers, how to find the clues in the questions, which questions to ask yourself to uncover the concept being tested, and how to replace anxiety with substitute behaviors. Then, join a 90-minute study group (included in the fee), led by an expert teacher live via videoconferencing, where you will have special access to sample questions that will illustrate the strategies and where you can ask the questions on your mind, to get expert feedback.
