1. Be prepared. Sounds simple, I know, but going into an exam you are confident about passing cuts down on the panic.
2. Do not hang around people in your classes. The discussing the exam after taking it only makes you crazy and second guess if your answers were right or theirs…. what you missed, what you should have gotten. Occasionally some prick will ask if you got the “trick questions”. My friend Jake perfected the way to respond to this: say “shut the fuck up Jamie”. Yeah, I’m that guy. The moment of blind panic makes me laugh.
3. When you are tired, sleep. The exhausted mind retains and remembers little.
