Will Baum, LCSW Founder of SWTP,
Will started SWTP as a blog recording his own test-prepping
efforts, just a few years after graduating the University of
Southern California School of Social Work. SWTP soon became a
full-fledged test-prep site offering its own practice exams, etc.
Also a therapist in private
practice (specializing in anxiety, addiction, and chronic pain),
Will is the one you're most likely to be in contact with when you
write to SWTP (try it). He's
written for the Huffington
New Social Worker, and Psychology
Lead Exam Writers

Two social workers have more questions on SWTP exams than any
others: Amy Morin and Debra Stang.

with 13 Things Strong
