Tips to prepare for Standardized Testing:


Study smart – and early! Don’t wait until the night before to start studying. You’ll feel more confident come test day if you have been organized and are prepared.

Get a good night’s sleep. This is probably a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised at how even an hour or two less sleep can affect your concentration and your mental sharpness, which can really affect how well you do on tests.

Eat something nutritious. Make sure you eat a good breakfast.

Be prepared with the materials you’ll need. Make sure you know what items you need to have for the test and pack them the night before, such as a photo id, #2 pencils, and a calculator.

Keep calm and pace yourself. Stress can affect your memory, so it’s really important to stay calm before and during a test. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. And don’t rush! Take your time and READ the instructions and the questions carefully. (Excerpts from Making It Count)
