    And, for the record....I don't feel the need to explain or defend why I have a 3.3....

    4.0 of course. And received my Doctorate at MIT, School of Minds, Yale, and don't forget Princeton. I have worked as a consultant for NASA, Boeing, KFC, and Pizza Hut, but am probably the proudest of my work for the UN, when I single handedly solved the Palesting/Isreal conflict. The super model career was more of a hobby, kind of a mini vacation from my work in neutrino research.
    And did I mention Brad Pitt?

    (I know many of you did make 4.0, not making fun of you- just lucky I became a nurse- heaven help my patients!!)

    All of our classes counted too, not just science/nursing pre-req's.

    I have severe test anxiety:uhoh21:, which always brought my overall grade down (and the college I attend grades on a straight A, B, C, etc., no + or -). I did much better on research papers, poster sessions, and presentations (I aced most of those).

    Anyone have any suggestions/strategies on how to overcome test anxiety?

    Test anxiety is tough. I have a slight case myself. I find that taking 3 really good cleansing breaths before the test is handed out helps!! Sounds funny, but try it! :chuckle

    Had a teacher who told me to treat each test as if it didn't matter (even if it did), convince yourself it was a trial test. I was amazed to see how much better I was at testing once I managed to apply that.
