Stacy, just remember to breathe. I read a bit of panic in your message. This information is pretty generic, but it has helped me through a lot of tests.
The night before the exam relax and do something fun. If you try cramming until the last minute you will not function well. get a good night's sleep the night before.
On the day of the test if you absolutely must review BRIEFLY, when actually taking the test, answer the questions that you KNOW the answer to, and skip the others, you can do this if it is paper and pencil, I am not sure about computer. Do not waste your time trying to figure out the answer to #10, spend 5 minutes and waste time, not a good idea. Don't read too much into the question. And when the test is over it is OVER. I know I have friends that have felt they failed every test they took, on the other hand I have felt confident. It is truly an individual thing.
I am making the assumption that this test will be general knowledge and an attempt to see if you can follow directions.
Take care, and let me know how you do, NA
