Beating the Big Bad Wolf: Conquering Test Anxiety

Beating the Big Bad Wolf
Alex Legrismith, College Sophomore
UAF, Fairbanks, Alaska

This presentation begins with physical causes of test anxiety. From this point it moves on to the symptoms of test anxiety. At this point in the presentation, I was concerned that this was all that was going to be covered. However soon after I began thinking this, the presentation began to discuss how to cope with test anxiety. Many of these ideas seemed quite helpful, while others seemed unrealistic. However all in all, I believe that this presentation could be useful for a student who is on the verge of conquering their test anxiety, and only needs one more small push.

Very helpful

This handout was very helpful. I never thought to take breaks during the test. I like the idea of just breathing and stretching in the middle of the exam.

Your not alone

I was so shocked to understand the reason behind the way I feel when I take a test and to understand I'm not alone. t That was a great feeling. I can now make sure when taking a test to take a couple of deep breaths and relax and let my mind open and be free and not to force it.

I found the "Conquering Test Anxiety" very helpful for me personally. I remember being in high school, all the things that you should not do when preparing for a test and getting ready to take a test, I did. I highly recommend this workshop for all students from high school to college.

I really enjoyed this website for useful advice on conquering test anxiety. I thought it was a meaningful, and thought provoking presentation and was nicer than reading an article. I think the topic of test anxiety is a tough pill for students to swallow, because many, like myself, refuse to admit they have test anxiety. So on that note, i feel this presentation handled the topic with ease and understanding. I also really appreciated the quiz near the end.

Positive Self-Talk works wonders

I have used this a lot since I took the First Year Experience at Chemeketa. Positive self-talk has helped me in so many ways I cannot really even begin to explain! If you do not already do this you should. It was indeed difficult to do at first, as was stated in this article, but I went crazy with post it notes all over my house and on the front of all my textbooks. This has helped me so much, and my anxiety over my classes, tests and home live has decreased immensely!

Test Anxiety
Marcia Thompson, College Freshman
Ultimate Medical Academy, Tampa, Florida

I become very anxious at test time. I have always been this way,my anxiety got so bad until i gave myself an ulcer. I had instructor, who allowed me to tape my lecture .That was the only thing that helped me. I was able to take my notes at my own pace. After that i did better on test and my anxiety decreased. ,

Puts studying into perspective

This article was informative and well written. It helps one understand why we have test anxiety, the different signs of test anxiety and how to cope with it. I found it interesting to learn that small relaxation techniques help to reduce test anxiety. This article also puts studying into perspective. This is worth a read.

This Power Point, presented by Abigail McNeely, LMSW-ACP, is a very well organized and informative presentation which explores the causes of test anxiety and the strategies to cope with or minimize such anxiety. Also included in this presentation are tips on how to take each variety of test; multiple choice, matching, short answers, true/false and essay questions. After each section, a small quiz is given to test your knowledge of what was covered. It's a bit long, but well worth the time.
