Studies conducted by numerous institutions of higher learning indicate that an overwhelming number of students suffer some form of exam anxiety. And it is no wonder! The amount of time spent in preparation for exams stretches toward two extremes:Waiting until the last-minute, and then cramming ISACA CISM.
Never quite learning the skills needed to prepare ones’ self for the inevitable exams Among many students, the last thing they are concerned about as each new semester begins is passing exams. They tend to begin each semester full of hope and resolve. They feel confident that they’ll grasp all of the information given to them during classes and lectures. But as time passes, many students slowly begin to lose that resolve.
Instead… self-doubt begins to erode their good intentions. It’s not your fault! Human nature tends to convince students that the best way to pass an exam is to wait until it’s almost upon them. This is when exam anxiety begins to build. If you find yourself in this leaking boat, here are some tips to ease the pressure before it becomes too much of a distraction:
Review all of your notes. (You do take notes, don’t you?) If you don’t have complete notes, see if a classmate will loan you his/hers. Begin by writing down a list of all the points you think will be listed in the exam, while keeping in mind that NOT EVERYTHING will be included. Do not waste time studying the points you know-concentrate on the points you do not know or do not fully understand.
