Learn what to do before, during and after a big test
Don't live in fear of your next test. Overcome your fears and ace your next examination by following these tips!
Before the test
Pay attention to the hints your teacher gives about an upcoming test. Write down exactly what you will be tested on. Knowing what the test will cover ishalf the battle.
Make a review sheet that includes important points from class and reading material. Then your study notes will be in one places. Plus, rewriting the material will help you to remember it.
Don't cram! Test preparation begins the first day of class, so do your reading assignments and homework consistently. Then you just need to review for the test - not learn all the material. Waiting until the night before to try to learn everything will only stress you out.
Get a good night's sleep before the test, but if you can't, don't pull an all nighter. Research shows that getting at least four hours of sleep produces the best test results. Eat a nourishing breakfast to keep your mind sharp. Aviod sugar, as it will hinder your ability to concentrate.

During the test
On the day of the test, be sure to bring pencils, erasers, eyeglasses and whatever else you need. Once you have the test, skim through it to see how it's organized, so you can better budget your time.
Read all instructions thoroughly and make sure you understand them before starting. Students often lose test points because they fail to read the directions carefully.
Avoid spending large amounts of time on tough questions. If you get stuck, leave the question and move on. Go back to the more difficult questions after completing the easier ones.If you are confused, ask your instructor for help.
At the end of the test
Once you are finished, read through your test again, and fight the temptaion to change your answer. Change them only if you misread the question because the first answer you choose is usually correct. Hand in your test with confidence. Don't worry about your mistakes; you probably did better than you think. Instead of worrying, celerate! The test is over!
