It’s Test Day

Table of Contents

Here is your test day checklist.

What to think about

  • Remember to take the test just like you were doing your homework and mock tests. You’ve done this many times before.  This test is no different.  You’ve got this.
  • Nervous?  Some nervousness is helpful.  Nervousness stimulates a surge in testosterone; this surge makes people “think more analytically.”  People given testosterone and then a mathematics test did 9% better on it than without the increased testosterone.  So, some nervousness = surge in testosterone = higher scores.  (“Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing”, p.178)

What to bring

  • Registration ticket
  • Photo identification
  • Calculator
  • Five wooden #2 pencils (not automatic pencils) — a somewhat dull pencil is actually ideal for scantron bubbling, but you will want some sharp pencils so you can write the essay with less strain on your hand
  • An eraser
  • Food and water (here are some suggestions on food)
  • Yourself

Optional to bring

  • A watch, particularly the ACT watch if you find it helpful
  • Happiness and a sense of humor

We were lucky enough to be referred to David at Summit Prep! My son enjoyed working with David as he felt that he really helped him prepare for the ACT. He explained concepts covered on the test as well as the test itself. My son felt confident taking the test and did so well that he only had to take it once!

David helped me improve my SAT from a 1480 to a 1570 over the course of about 2 months. Each session made me feel more and more confident.

Eva took on an almost impossible task and seriously worked a miracle! We found out we were moving, and our son had to take the ISEE exam asap. From his practice test to the exam, his scores went up exponentially. We give her 5 enthusiastic stars!

All three of my children have used Summit Prep for their test prep and, I believe, reached their full potential as a result of the outstanding guidance of David and Ryan. His ongoing support went above and beyond. Many thanks!
