Day of Exam Test Tips – Test site challenges and more!

1. If there is an issue of significance at the test site, call ASWB immediately. Upon starting the exam, ASWB has a form that you sign indicating consent to proceed. It is challenging to get a refund or rectify a problem once you submit the form and begin your exam. 

2. Read every question twice, especially the last sentence. It is common to read too quickly or to misread the qualifying word (e.g., most likely versus least likely, etc.). If you are running out of time, at least read the last sentence twice so you are clear on what is being asked of you. 

3. Use logic over acronyms. A recent survey showed that 70% of participants who failed the exam used acronyms. LEAP teaches you test logic rather than oversimplified acronyms. If you are using acronyms, it may be time for you to sign up for LEAP’s small group, interactive, live strategy class where you will become very familiar with test logic and ditch those unproven acronyms. Remember, human problems are rarely solved using acronyms! We have said this before and hope to reinforce this message given the data.
