Adult Education Connection by Karen Gent You've registered to take the GED tests. You're getting ready to go to the testing center, and youlre starting to feel a little (a whole lot) nervous. What can you do so alleviate some of this pressure you're feeling? Here are some pointers that may help reduce your test anxiety: I. Avoid any additional pressure by showing up on time (or early) with all the equip- ment you will need (pencils, proper ID, etc.) Anticipate any unexpected delays such as heavy traffic, etc. that might slow you down. Use the rest- room before you arrive, and don't come in hungry or thirsty. Get plenty of rest the night be- fore so you will be at your best. 2. As soon as you receive the test, listen closely to any verbal istructions and read the written test directions carefully. Use scratch paper to pencil 'in any information you know such as dates, equations, formulas, or memou, cues you don't want to risk forgetting. 3. Scan the entire test and formulate a plan of attack. Plan your time according to the value of each question or section. Don't spend too much time on any one question. Al- low a few minutes at the end of the time allowed for the test to go back and look at any ques- tions you felt unsure about. 4. Read carefully, but move quickly through the test marking any answers you're not sure of. You can go back to those you marked and try them again. Don't panic if you don't know the answers to the first few questions. Go on to one you do know and start there. Rephrase questions you have trouble with. It may help for you to break the sentence into parts if you have trouble understanding it. Periodically check the clock to see how much time you have to work. 5. Check your work! Once you are finished, spend any remaining time reading over the test again. Check all your answers, even the ones you think are correct. You may have made a careless mistake. Remember, you don't get bonus points for finishing early and being the first to leave the room! 6. The multiple-choice questions on the GED tests can usually be narrowed down to two reasonable answer choices. Think about your selection carefully, and choose your answer. Are you prepared to "ke the GED tests? An exceller ray to evaluate your test readiness .is to take the Official GED Practice Tests. The practice tests are offered at all South- west Regional Adult Education classes. If you come in to take a practice test and pass, your GED testing fee will be paid.
