Do you get stressed before and during tests? Does it affect your performance? You are not alone.

Many students struggle with test-taking. The key to reduce stress associated with exams is preparation. There are many study strategies that may help you better prepare and reduce stress associated with test taking. Not taking the steps to reduce stress can lead to Test-Anxiety. When you don’t manage the stress you experience with taking tests, stress escalates and can manifest in physical symptoms, such as pounding heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and muscle tension. You may also find yourself unable to concentrate or remember any of the material you studied (Caine & Caine, 1991; Jacobs & Nadel, 1985; O’Keefe & Nadel, 1985; Tobias, 1985).

Below are some strategies that may help you reduce test anxiety. Please click on the Test Anxiety link. If the problem continues to persist, you may want to consult a health professional.
