Preparing for Tests


Reducing Test Anxiety

  • Keep a positive attitude. Decide to do your best and focus on the material you know.
  • Concentrate on the test. Don't worry about your ability, the behavior of other people, the number of questions, or even short memory lapses.
  • Pay close attention to one question at a time. This kind of concentration reduces anxiety.
  • Relax as much as you can. If you're too nervous to think or read carefully, try to slow down physically. Take several slow, deep breaths. Then start to work.
