FEW NON STUDY RELATED TEST TAKING TIPS


I took the exam a few times before i passed...BEsides studying these are things you should do to help you during test day.

 

 

1- BRING FOOD (SNACKS) that will keep energetic throughout the test.

2- DO NOT HESITATE TO TAKE A WALK TO THE REST ROOM AT LEAST 5-10  times during the exam....it helps you stay focused.

3- DO NOT COMPARE YOUR PROGRESS WITH EVERYONE ELSE IN THE ROOM---A LOT OF PEOPLE DIDNT STUDY...WHEN PEOPLE START TO MAKE TOWARDS THE DOOR AN HOUR INTO THE EXAM...LAUGH IT OFF AND SAY ENJOY THAT FAILING GRADE.

4-  TAKE YOUR TIME READING AND SEEING KEY WORDS

5-  NOTHING SHOULD BE EASY ENOUGH TO ANSWER IN 30 SECONDS.

6- GO OVER THE EXAM AT LEAST TWICE.

7- STAY THE 6 HOURS, EVEN IF IT SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE WAISTING TIME.   YOU WILL NOT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ANOTHER EXAM FOR AT LEAST 3 YEARS.

 

 

HOPE THIS HELPS

Real quick question about this.

What kind of food are we allowed to bring into the exam? Meaning am I sneaking in granola bars in my pocket or can I actually make a sandwich etc. Also if we are allowed to bring food can we bring water in with us?

Thanks.

Either a granola bar or sandwich should be fine.......i highly suggest you refrain from bringing that tray of lasagna though.

another tip................DONT CHANGE ANSWERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What about my Grandma's meatball sub?
Mmmmm, my favorite. It will really help me focus, little messy though.

I also heard to refrain listening to all the crap that comes out of people's mouths on line...it will only corrupt what you already know and make you second guess.
