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 Master's level social work exams. Titles vary by state and may include: LMSW, ASW, CMSW, and LSW. Looking for our clinical level app? Search Pocket Prep LCSW in iTunes.

Great App for a study aid to take the exam.
Aside from the sluggishness issue which is being addressed, I had a great experience using this app for LSW test prep and as of this morning I have passed my exam with the majority of my studying taking place through the pro version of this app.
And the questions are just challenging enough to get you thinking about core principles of social work. I recommend this app for those people are required to take a test to become licensed.
This app was so helpful when understanding how the questions are written/formatted. I actually found these questions quite a bit harder than the actual exam. I got a 75% consistently on these questions and an 85% on the actual exam.
Very helpful study tool!
This is a great app! Using this app lets me know what I can do to pass.
App does a great job going through each question whether it's correct or incorrect. I find this app to be a great tool when you have a few minutes and want to study
I'll suggest anyone that is taking the ASWB LMSW or LCSW to purchased this app and the clinical app...they both with help you with your license exam.
I absolutely recommend this app. I tried books and flash cards and listening to chapters on cd. I failed the exam two times by small numbers. I downloaded pocket prep and used it daily and scored 20 points hire and passed!
It's convenient to be able to study anywhere. Taking the test help me narrow down the areas I need to study.
This is the main study aid I used and I passed one month after graduation! It is great
Due to the exam being best answer or first step instead of correct answer, the app gave me lots of practice! I loved that whether I had 5 mins or 45 mins spare time I could take a beneficial quiz, choosing the number of questions I wanted and which topic I wanted to focus on. Great app.
This app was well worth the money! The formatting of the questions and the explanations of correct answers were very helpful in preparing and studying for the exam. It's also very user friendly and has great options on generating practice quizzes. I will definitely recommend this to all of my classmates!
This app ROCKS!!! I passed my LMSW exam today using solely this app. I purchased a variety of test prep materials but found them to be too overwhelming. I simply quizzed myself using this app, slowly increasing the number of questions per exam and PASSED!!! 😁
I passed my LMSW exam yesterday! This was the only thing that I purchased to help with studying. I think that studying from the questions was very helpful in preparing me for the exam. I would highly recommend this app. It's is definitely worth the money!
This was the most helpful studying tool by far! Wish it was available on Ipad and Mac!
Definitely a great tool to practice questions with. I just passed my exam and would definitely recommend this app!
Thiis a great study aid. The results are broken down into sections so that you know where you need to study more. The explanations of the correct answers are usually helpful but sometimes are too vague, that is the only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars. I paid for the upgrade and am absolutely satisfied.
This app is amazing!! Lots of super pertinent information. Easy to use & very comprehensive.
I used only this app to study for the exam, and I passed! It is very helpful to understand the way the questions are written.
