This resource is the most helpful, because when I look at the study guide I remember all of the questions, but when it comes to the test my mind just goes blank.

Had All the Tips, Not just a Few
Arielle Brown, HS Senior
Chemeketa Community College, Salem, Oregon

This site had more than just small amounts of information pertaining to test anxiety; it had the majority of the information that was posted on the rest of the sites. Instead of just telling the reader to eat enough before the test, it told the reader what kinds of foods would be likely to increase stress levels rather than decrease them. I would much rather be toldspecifically what kind of food will contribute to me being calmer or more stressed than normal. It went over most of the information that was on the rest of the sites but I only had to go to one site.

Useful tips to reduce test anxiety

I really enjoyed that this article on Overcoming Test Anxiety covered a variety of topics and had several tips to counter some of the common anxiety triggers. It is good to remember that most students experience some level of anxiety and that it is a sign of wanting to do well. The advice that was presented, covered how to prepare yourself well in advance of a test, how to build confidence with good habits leading up to the test, how to show up to a test with your best foot forward, and how to cope with the anxiety when it begins to build during a test.

But what I liked most was when it offered strategies for after the test.Using all of these tools together would help a person feel supported and successful every step of the way.
