NEW!!! The Art of Taking a Multiple Choice Exam

Written by folks who helped to design the licensure exams, this book answers all the questions you have about solving the puzzle of a multiple choice exam. You learn where the question writers are coming from and how you can “meet them where they are”! In addition you are given hundreds of questions both at the Masters and Clinical level on which to practice your new skills.

Since English is not my first language, I didn’t think I could pass the exam. I was nervous and extremely anxious. After working with Ventajas materials and Ms. Goddard, I amazed myself by passing the LCSW exam! Through Ventajas I learned that solid exam-taking strategies work regardless of language barriers!
