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.

Get Started for Free:
We provide a limited free version so you can get a feel for the app before deciding to upgrade. The free version offers dozens of practice questions with detailed answer explanations and limited access to the Question of the Day.

Definitely worth the $40

I bought the 800 question option, and it was definitely worth getting and I highly recommend. I passed on my first try with close to a 90% and I’ve been out of school for over 5 years, not working in social work, completed my MSW on the macro, not clinical, track, and had about one week to study, so I had the odds stacked against me. I also had one of the more difficult level exams. This app was very helpful, and I found it slightly harder than the questions on the actual exam. I used it with the Mometrix study guide, and paid for the ASWB practice test. I HIGHLY recommend doing the ASWB practice test. Although the information provided on this app and in the study guide were very useful, the ASWB practice test provided the most accurate representation of the actual exam.

My criticisms of the app are the amount of times it freezes up, touch controls not working, shuts down in the middle of tests, etc. The developers really need to fix those issues.

Good luck to all future test takers!

Helpful app!

Just passed the LMSW. I got the 800 question version of the app. Highly recommend for studying on the go, whether you have a few minutes or hours. I really liked the reminders, question of the day, and how much flexibility you have when building your exams. The app never froze on me in IOS, but did reset on its own and deleted all my progress which sort of sucked. It was nice to get a “good luck” email from pocket prep before my exam! I also recommend taking the $85 ASWB practice exam if you can. It gives you the best idea of what the exam is really like. There were a lot more scenario based questions than I expected. It’s normal to never feel ready, so just schedule your exam, study, and go for it. Good luck, friends! The world needs good social workers more than ever. ❤️

So glitchy

This app is incredibly helpful and has guided my studying for my aswb exam. HOWEVER, for the amount of money you have to pay for full access the app should not be as glitchy and hard to use as it is. It freezes, asks the same questions over and over in the same test and sometimes crashes. Worst of all, 5 days before my test my app restarted for whatever reason and lost all of my progress and was telling me that I need to repurchase the questions. Thankfully I was able to restore my purchase in the app but all of my progress disappeared. This app is so helpful content wise but is so difficult and frustrating to use sometimes, which is the last thing someone wants to experience before taking such an important exam.
