The Social Worker Job Simulation Exam is a unique type of exam that is designed to simulate an actual work situation a Social Worker in a social services department might encounter on a typical day. The constraints designed into this exam purposely place the applicant in a situation with severe limitations of time and resources. These constraints are similar to the pressures and limitations a Social Worker must deal with on a regular basis.

In the actual exam applicants are provided with a package that contains an assortment of documents in a random order that correspond to multiple cases and office activities. These documents are designed to simulate actual documents that a Social Worker would typically find in his/her in-basket. To help familiarize you with this test format, we have created this practice exam that focuses on one case.
