Standardized Testing Standardized Testing is inevitable, whether it’s your SAT’s, ACT’s or GRE’s, at some point in our life we all will probably take it.

No matter how many preparations have been done, do not let anxiety get in the way; therefore, giving yourself time in advance to get familiarized with the material can help you relax. Anxiety can cause conflicting results because people often times “freeze” or forget what they have studied or practiced for. To help you relax, make your preparations in advance so there is no need to rush the night before or the actual day of the test.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
