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. * Academics’ Choice “Smart Media” award winner * 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.

  • So far so good

    By Rescue2018
    Studying with the app for the 2nd time. Although the questions are difficult it’s helping me have a better understanding of where I am with each area of the exam.
  • Font too small

    By study9
    This would be a helpful app if the font was not sooooo small ! Even with my super strong reading glasses, i need to strain my eyes in order to read the question. My husband has perfect vision and said he could not read it either. Unlike other apps I have on my Apple iPhone, the this app does not allow me to change the font. I contacted support and they suggested I use the web version so I can increase the font. They defeats the whole purpose of the “pocket” prep. Also, question of the day does not work. It keeps telling me I already answered the question! Contacted support, reinstalled app as suggested- no change. Very frustrating!
  • Very helpful app!

    By Chap820
    I passed my exam in large part due to the practice questions I studied with on this app. The main way it helped was in figuring out themes and patterns, and better understanding what the test makers were looking for. I’d highly recommend it!
  • Worth the money

    By Gdsfhkk
    This app definitely helps me feel prepared for the LCSW exam.
  • Educational

    By lovegirl200687
    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

    By swirlswithfire
    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

    By rcmsw
    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?

    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.
