In the multiple choice format on the ASWB exams, more than one answer seems correct. There is no clear basis to help you choose the right one and you’re stuck.
Because you don’t know how to choose, you lose your confidence. You’re hoping the answers will rescue you, but they aren’t. You’re not sure what you’re doing wrong.
Put your full attention on the narrative of the question, that’s where the help is. Become a skilled detective and extract the clues to determine the best answer.
Susan is an alcoholic who has been sober for one year.
She was referred to a social worker by her employer’s EAP.
Lately, she has been coming in late in the mornings and
has been uncharacteristically short-tempered and irritable
with her supervisor. Her workplace is downsizing and
many employees are anxious about possible layoffs.
As a priority, the SW should address and:
A) Refer her for a medical evaluation to rule out physical causes for these behavior changes.
B) Begin a thorough assessment of all the factors that may be contributing to these changes.
C) Perform an assessment to identify any current substance use.
D) Discuss Susan’s feelings and reactions to the increased tensions at the workplace.

She received her MSW from the University of Michigan in 1971 and has worked in a community mental health setting as a therapist, supervisor and administrator, followed by a decade in private practice. After taking the Clinical test in 2009 she began tutoring social workers; this gave her the opportunity to observe directly which skills and content are necessary for mastery of the ASWB exams. In May 2013, she created a 5 hour online course which teaches and explains the essential exam content. To this she added a live 90-minute training session to teach students the skills to uncover the concept in each question.
