LCSW Pocket Prep App Details

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.

    I would say that the app is helpful in the sense that it helps you with recall information and provides you with definitions to things you may have not remembered. It is also helpful because it provides a lot of information on the DSM 5. The main thing I didn’t like about the app is the lengthy questions and the fact that it crashed a lot. I would always have to get out of it to reload. It’s nice that this app was very affordable but I would definitely recommend taking the practice exam on the ASWB website. It’s costly for one exam but it is a real indicator of what the exam will be like. I just took my exam today and did exceedingly well. Good luck future therapist!
  • Just okay as prep material

    Let me start by saying that I took the USA clinical federal exam (Massachusetts), which is distributed in most states. I’m not sure if all states use this exam (looking at you, CA), so I wanted to clarify. I downloaded this at the recommendation of a friend who used it to prep for the clinical exam. I immediately knew that this material would not be so pertinent to the exam. I found that the questions focused mostly on content / single research studies as opposed to first/next/best questions, which make up the majority of the exam. There are some first/next/best questions, just not as many as the former. Additionally, many of the questions were worded poorly. As a grammar nerd, I found this annoying, because they would word questions improperly, which would result in me getting the “wrong” answer because they were looking for a different answer. For example, many questions were looking for something that is NOT indicative of a theory or case, but they would forget to put words like “least”, “not”, etc., in the question; this was evident when I would go back and check answers and reread questions. Sometimes questions were unfinished as well, so I’d have to guess what type of answer they for which they were looking. This did not occur most of the time, but it still was frustrating and a waste of my time. Even though I’m giving the app two stars, I still recommend that people use it. This is mainly because it was a really quick way for me to study when I was cut for time. I payed for the version with 800 questions, and I could just whip out the app between clients or during my break and answer a few questions. While the questions are not quite what you’ll see on the actual exam, the app did allow me to start getting in an “exam mindset.” This is especially helpful if you’re like me and haven’t taken an exam since grad school. The app also allowed me to take longer exams and start getting ready for sitting for a long period of time like you will at the actual exam. Downside is you can only take exams up to 100 questions on this app (the actual exam has 170 questions), but it was still helpful in prepping myself to sit for a long time and read questions off a screen. So, I’d still recommend it. Just understand that you may need to supplement this with other materials.
  • Helpful when the app did not crash

    I recently took my test and passed, using this app alongside other study aids. The practice tests were helpful. Almost none of the material on the the app was on my test. The app crashed several times a week and every 6 weeks I had to delete the app and reload it. While the app was useful to get me prepped for a long test, it was more of a hassle to keep it functional than it was useful.
  • Accurate?

    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

    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!!!

    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

    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.
  • 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.
