You look at the test that's just been handed to you, and you suddenly feel frozen and numb. You knew that it was coming, but once again you somehow managed to put off studying until the last minute. You try to remember the material you did study, but instead of concentrating you're already worrying about how much time you have left, or you find yourself compulsively checking and rechecking questions you've already answered. If you frequently have experiences like these, then test-taking anxiety may be a real problem for you. The good news is that you don't have to let it stop you from doing well in school. This guide distills proven techniques that psychologists use to combat full-fledged anxiety disorders into supportive, step-by-step exercises. It also provides a wealth of practical suggestions to help you deal with distractions, learn how to focus your attention, get the most out of classes and study time, and approach exams with confidence.
