Several test takers struggle with the fact that the ASWB exam is presented in a multiple choice format. It's important to use Process of Elimination when faced with determining the correct answer for an exam question. We recommend that test takers:
1.) Pay attention to key concepts in the question.
2.) Be mindful of the age of the client, stage of the therapeutic relationship, duration of symptoms and sequence of intervention (First, Next, Last)
3.) Your role (social worker in a school setting, hospital, community center, etc)
Additionally, make sure that you review all possible answers before making a selection. Be sure to eliminate the erronerous answer and the distractor.
