Overcome Test Anxiety: two methods

— from an email to our students

 

Hello students of Badass Tutors,

 .
I have some advice on how to overcome test anxiety. My study skills ebook has all the information you need, and for those on guaranteed plans it’s required you at least know the advice. So here we go. For other students, consider this some free friendly advice.
 .
To overcome test anxiety:
 .
1. Practice my visualization-relaxation technique daily or nearly so.
 .
Visualize what makes you nervous during tests and practice linking those images in your head to a “happy place.” A happy place? What is that! It’s a time/memory in our life you felt completely relaxed. Remember all the details you experienced: sounds, noises, smell, taste, and touch. For me that was a beach in Hawaii at midnight, when there was no bright, glaring sunlight, the water was warmer than the air, felt like a water blanket. I remember the sand beneath my body, the sound of the waves, smell of the sea. It was Bliss.
 .
Now, imagine you prepping to go to your test. Nervous? Dwell in your happy place a minute. See yourself getting a blank test from the professor. More nervous? Spend a longer time in your happy place. See the questions and you being stumped. Nervous? More time in your happy place. Continue this for the entire test taking experience. Practice this nightly the week of your test.
 .
There’s more to it than this but for you who want the free or paid version of the ebook let me know. For those of you have have a guaranteed plan, you already have the ebook. Read it!
 .
2. Speed Quizzes!
 .
Practice your homework or sample quizzes you or your tutor make for you and do them in a classroom like your own. Go fast! If you make a mistake, punish yourself with exercise. Run a flight of stairs or do 10 pushups.  Get our of breath. Do another speed quiz. Didn’t get a 100%? Run two sets of stairs. Repeat. Keep going til either you get 100% or you need a workout break. Do it again the next night. Practice fast. Learn how you make mistakes when stressed. Track your mistakes in a log book, then practice problems that induce those mistakes.
 .
Do both of these techniques and watch your results on tests improve. I GUARANTEE IT!
 .

Thanks,
