Pass the LCSW on your first try! Create customized practice tests, view detailed answer rationales, and review your results with just a few taps. Pocket Prep is your award-winning tool for mobile learning and exam preparation. Pocket Prep allows you to study anywhere, anytime, right from your mobile device. We strive to make studying more efficient by redefining how you prepare for the ASWB® Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) exam. 2015 Academics’ Choice “Smart Media” award winner 2016 EdTech Digest “Cool Tool” award winner The Science Behind Mobile Learning: Overloading your brain with too much information at once is a common study mistake. Research has shown that smaller, more frequent study sessions are the key to knowledge retention. In other words, taking short quizzes on the go is a much more effective means of exam preparation than reading page after page in a textbook. Apps offer the benefit of interaction, which means you’re far more likely to remember a concept you engage with rather than one you’ve only read about. *NOTE* This app will prepare you for DSM-5 clinical level social work exams. Titles vary by state and may include: LCSW, LISW, CMSW, CSW-PIP and LICSW. Looking for our Master's level app? Search Pocket Prep MSW in iTunes. ASWB® Content Areas: - I.

  • Accurate?

    By meganfl
    I truly hope these questions do not mimic those on the actual exam. Extremely wordy, and a great deal of the answers I can prove wrong with research and evidenced based practice teachings that have been proven. I have not taken the actual exam so maybe the two stars is harsh, but I’m in a study program now that has a 95% passage rate the first time around and this is just making me second guess myself to be honest. If I can prove “correct” answers wrong, it does not appear to be accurate to the exam. And if this is indeed how the exam questions an individuals ability to become licensed, that’s a joke for the entire social work community.
  • Very helpful, and a fun way to prepare

    By lukerobbinscomedy
    Disclaimer: this is NOT a substitute for good ol’ fashioned studying. This is a WONDERFUL tool to practice while reviewing and after reviewing. I took my test this weekend, and scored 15 over the required number to pass. I have recommended this app to every colleague who is studying for the LCSW or who is planning to take it any time soon. Thanks for the help!! Great app!!
  • Too complicated

    By kloudy52
    This app made me feel like a failure. I couldnt score over a 67% after 450 questions. The questions are very similar to the actual test but the answers were nothing like it. You will never get an answer more than one line long. And those are few. I passed the test studying from a workshop I took where the professor said “Don’t buy study materials. Use my stuff.” She was right.
  • I passed my LSCW exam today...1st time!!!

    By MimilaNaa
    This app was EXTREMELY beneficial in studying for the exam. I recommend this app to anyone preparing to take the LCSW exam. The app references the DSM 5 and provides page numbers where information can be found in DSM 5. I consistently studied daily for 1.5 months, until test day. I studied on my hour lunch break, evenings for 30 minutes before bed and several hours on Saturdays. The app is GREAT and makes studying convenient! I also took a practice exam, it was very beneficial since I tend to have testing anxiety.
  • Highly recommended

    By Hearts&Thoughts
    I highly recommend this app. Not sure I would have passed the test without it! Some questions have tricky wording that threw me off even when I knew the correct answer. You need to understand the hidden meaning behind the test questions so you know how to pick the best answer out of several options that would be correct if the question had been worded slightly different. This practice app helped me learn what the questions are actually asking and what areas to practice more. I have a lot of experience in mental health counseling but was not necessarily prepared for all the questions about theories outside my practice area. For example, my career has focused on single adults and many of the questions on the exam are about child and family practice. A really great thing about this app is that many of the questions were on the real test, just reworded with different names. I knew the correct answers directly due to this practice app! It is also a much better deal than the official ASWB practice test which cost $80 for 170 questions. The one advantage of that test is familiarization with the real test software, but the real test does give you practice time to learn the software so it is not entirely necessary to practice at home. If you are short on money, all you need is this app.
  • I loved it

    By Trinigal7
    I passed on 1/11/18. This app was easy to assess and easy to use. The reasoning for the answers helped me also. I really loved it and it worked for me. I purchased two other apps and hated them. They were confusing and like flash cards. What also helped was paying the extra $85 for a practice test from ASWB. Learn scenarios and what to do. Think as a supervisor. Best of luck and believe in your self. If you fail don't give up please try again. I failed 3x back in 2003 and finally took it again 15 years later. If I could do so can you. Hang in there.
  • Amazing App!!

    By Jencyrachel
    Love it!! Feeling more confident and preparing for exam soon!
  • Decreased my confidence

    By nikihuckstadt
    I would not recommend this app. The test questions were far more difficult than the actual exam. As I continued to use it, I felt like my confidence decreased. The exams questions were not reflective of the actual exam, or for that matter, other test prep resources. I would spend money elsewhere. I passed.
  • Not structured like the actual test

    By bawtez
    App is useful for increasing knowledge, but questions are not structured like the actual exam. I used this as a supplement to the Apgar study guide.
  • Worth every penny! Purchase the full version!

    By 1234.lll.nickname
    I just passed my LCSW with a great score and largely attribute it to this app. I studied for 3 weeks, primarily using this app since I'm often on the go. I loved that it explains why answers are right or wrong, not just testing and scoring you. The option to build your own exam is a great feature, as well, since I was very confident in some areas and needed to focus on others. All around the best study app I found BY FAR. I suggest studying the DSM, the guide by Dawn Apgar, then using this app to familiarize yourself with the way questions will be presented on the test, as well as test your knowledge base and find your strengths/weaknesses.
