The mere thought of a test can at times spark feelings that vary from having little pretest jitters to over the top panic and trepidation. There are steps you can take to at least decrease that anxiety and also help you be more prepared for a test.
Make sure that you know what chapters and material a test will be covering. It is also helpful to know what kind of test it will be. Will it be multiple choice? Essay? Fill in the blank? Knowing how many points certain parts of the test are worth can help you know how much time to spend on each section.
Being prepared is one of the best things to ensure control over the dreaded “test anxiety”
Look over study guides, class notes, and past quizzes. Make sure to study every day because if you try and cram it in the night before it will be extremely difficult to retain what you need to remember to pass the test.
