Did nervousness impair your performance on Exam 1? If so, follow the procedures spelled out by Cameron's Mental Health Counselor: Test Anxiety

A more detailed method for detecting and defeating test anxiety had been designed by the Educational Testing Service for preparing for the PRAXIS test education students take. As you read this guide, simply substitute "Anatomy" everytime you read "Praxis"!
