Any tips for taking a huge final?

Post by Helen_Davis » Thu February 7th, 2013, 5:15 pm

I take a huge final for my online transcriptionist course next week. I know I know the material and I am pretty confident, but I would just like some tips on how to relax and realize I do know the answers since I've spent years in the medical community

I am sure you will do great! One tip that works for me is to condense all the important material to one page of typing and read through several times just before going to sleep. Somehow this seems to "set" the facts in my brain and I remember everything the next morning. Good luck!

Good luck - I can't offer any advice because I am also a terrible test taker and have never been able to squash my anxiety before one.

I'm 30 years old and STILL have nightmares about being back in high school. *shutters* You are braver than I am!

Well-- took it yesterday and today amidst many technical difficulties. Two weeks before I know if I passed. Fingers crossed. On another note, I have great news. May I share?
