Combating anxiety: the day before the test
10/13/2008


It is extremely important to get a good night’s sleep before the test day. If you are a person who gets bogged down by apparitions of the exam monster, make sure that you can start practicing normal sleeping patterns at least a week before the exam.

The afternoon or evening before the test day is best spent taking a simulated test. With the review of answers, this is almost a 4-hour sitting. Do not take any breaks other than the ones GMAT allows. Do not make this a nocturnal exercise. Remember, it is important to get those zz’s – go to bed on time and try and get some good sleep.

What is important that you not try to learn a topic anew a day before the test. This is neither the time nor the place to do so.

If you have prepared well, you should have a summary-sheet prepared for the test. This sheet can contain, for example, most of the important formulae that you find difficult to memorize, or maybe the most important types of sentence correction errors that you want to refresh before the test. If this summary sheet is ready, glance this over for less than half-an-hour. You are then all set to sleep your anxiety away.

Decide what you are going to wear the next day, and put your IDs in the pockets (if relevant). It is best not to carry any reading material or gadgets with you the next day, because you will have to store all of it in the locker anyway. It is a good idea to carry a light sweater to the test, in case you find a chilly room to be very distracting (some people do). You can always shed it if you find you do not need it.
