#1 Test Taking Tip - THE BRAIN DUMP

Brain Dump

The Brain Dump is where you write down all of the formulas, facts, or other information you are afraid you're going to forget in the margins or on the back of a page as soon as you have your test in hand, before you read anything else!

This will lower the anxiety you feel when first starting the test and put a stop to the fear that you're going to get confused by seeing all the wrong answers as options on the test.
