We can make this thread for all test taking strategies or tips or just to vent about anxieties over... but I'll start with my situation first. I have to take the SAT tomorrow. This is my last chance to improve my score before I have to submit it to colleges. I've already taken it twice, and the last time I took the exam, I scored an 1860; I want to improve by about 140 points, which would put me at an even 2000. Needless to say, I am extremely nervous. I have been studying, brushing up on my vocabulary and mathematical formulas, and I even reread a few important novels that I might be able to cite in my essay, if the topic is relevent. I've taken a lot of practice tests, and have seen an improvement... but they're just practice tests. *sigh* I'm really nervous because I'm sick right now, and additionally, I have a really horrid time focusing. I'm getting tested for ADD and ADHD in a few weeks (I know, I know; it's an overmedicated disorder, but my mind is so filled with thoughts that I am so easily sidetracked, and outside noises during a test are so distracting to me; it's horrible, and I have scored lower because of it). Regardless, it's not soon enough to medicate me or to allow me extra time on the exam... Does anyone have any tips for me, be it study strategies or tips for focusing? I'm super nervous.
