This full-length practice test with answers and rationales, created by a prominent educator of social work licensure candidates, is a key resource for social workers preparing for the ASWB Masters exam. It can be used either on its own or in conjunction with the author';s Social Work ASWB Masters Exam Guide: A Comprehensive Study Guide for Success. The 170 questions contained in this resource mirror the test in length, structure, and content. These are unique questions, distinct from those in the author's complementary study guide, that serve as a valuable diagnostic tool to improve success.

With in-depth rationales and specific strategies for correctly answering each question, this resource helps social workers identify gaps in knowledge and errors in problem solving. Knowledge domains are grouped together so test-takers can identify the specific content area and competency being tested--a valuable asset for increasing understanding. In addition, the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities statements (KSAs) are identified for each question, so test-takers can easily locate relevant source materials for further study. Tips for reading the questions, avoiding common pitfalls, and other valuable test-taking strategies, including an assessment of learning styles, add to this book's value as a highly useful resource and diagnostic tool.
