might sound ridiculous, but does anyone get a bit nervous

Postby flash21 » Wed Dec 18, 2013 1:07 am

before doing just a timed LR section, or timed RC section? (like a full section taken apart from a PT)?

I am not sure why - I'm writing in June or October so I'm terrified if I'm nervous for timed sections that I'll have a heart attack on actual test day..

I think its because I care a lot - but I bet everyone here does.. so any thoughts? Thanks.

i think it's good to be nervous -- just have to channel it the right way -- see if watching this before your next set helps any --

I get nervous just timing myself at home, so I can definitely relate. I sit the exam in February. Not a good sign :(

Especially toward the start of my timed prep, I would get nervous doing timed sections. It's natural, and it may never go away. But that's ok. Let the nervousness give you clarity.

Indeed! On test day my adrenaline rush happened to cause a 2 point increase from most of my practice tests. Embrace that energy grasshopper.
