  • Get several nights of restful sleep before the test. Eat a good breakfast on the morning of the test.
  • Have everything you need, including your calculator and directions to the testing site, laid out the night before.
  • Leave plenty of time for travel to the testing site.
  • Relax. High anxiety won't help you test well.
  • Expect the unexpected. Students have been known to get physically ill at these tests.
  • Don't let clueless proctors and cheating students distract you. Stay focused on your work.
