 We previously talked to you about handling test anxiety, however being able to control the stress is only a small part, as neglecting small details during the day of the exam can have a negative impact. For this reason at The Tutoring Center in Hoover, we prepared the following post containing useful test taking tips.

Before the Test

A good night’s sleep is crucial, so cramming the night before is out of the question. Also, eating a healthy breakfast before the test is a good idea, as your brain will need energy to stay focused; be sure to provide your children with fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs or whole grain cereal, and stay away from oily foods and refined sugar.

Getting Ready

Make sure to take your children to the exam early and check that they have all the school supplies they need to answer the test. Having a good attitude is important and deep breathing is perfect to manage stress.


Time is very valuable during a test and it’s crucial to have to make good use of it. Your children should assign the amount of time they will be spending on each question; in case they get stuck, they should mark the question and come back later. It’s recommended to answer the easier questions first to gain confidence and move faster through the evaluation.

These simple ideas are a huge step towards a great exam. Also, remember that studying and learning will provide your children with a solid foundation that will allow them feel confident during their test.
