Be ready.

Test yourself to be sure you know the material.

Be rested.

All-nighters cause more problems than they solve.

You need to be alert.  Eat a light breakfast or lunch.

Be positive.

Say "I'll do my best" rather than "I can't do this."

Be on time.

Give yourself a chance to settle down.

Be calm.

Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths to reduce anxiety.
Be systematic.

Look over the test.  Budget your time.  Read directions carefully.

Read items carefully.  Spend time on what you can answer.
Be logical.
Use the time you are given.  Review your work before leaving.
