SW Exam....Study break

If you are preparing for the social work licensing exam, it's likely that you have been studying a lot. If this is true, it's okay to allow yourself to have a break sometimes. This is going to be my last post for a while. I am going to take a short break but will pick up my studying very soon. I wish you the best of luck.

Have confidence, relax, and use the tips you've learned and you'll do great.

Here is one last tip for the sake of being a studying and learning-a-holic (something I made up, which will not be on the test, I don't think):


·         Maslow believed that people’s basic needs had to be met before they can live fully which includes self-actualizing through learning. TIP: So, this means to meet your basic needs before taking the exam and even before studying to help you have better results.

·         The basic needs are listed in a pyramid form with needs on the bottom requiring fulfillment before higher needs can be accomplished.

·         The basic needs:
o   Physiological (health, food, sleep)
o   Safety (protection, shelter)
o   Belonging (love, affection, being in a group)
o   Esteem (self-esteem and esteem from others)
o   Self-actualization (reaching one’s potential)
