Test taking tips:
Come well rested for the test. Teenagers are recommended to get 8-10 hours of sleep a night!
Don't skip breakfast on your test day! Did you know you think better on a full stomach? Make sure to eat a balanced breakfast so you're ready to go.
Manage your time wisely! Scan through the test questions, answer the easier ones first, and come back to the questions you may be unsure of. When stuck on a question, eliminate choices you know are incorrect so you can focus on possible correct choices before selecting your answer.
