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!
