    Preparation. Pace yourself in preparation, studying for the exam. Set up a schedule for periodic review. Write notes and ask a friend to ask you questions. Teach on the subject, if even informally to a friend. Find out about the test format. Get a good night's sleep. Arrive early at the testing site. Review the number of questions prior to starting the test. Answer the questions you know and mark the ones you don't and come back to them later after you have answered the questions you know the answer to. Review your answers when done, but be careful about changing answers once you have finished the test. Your first guess may be right. Watch the time and pace yourself - don't spend too much time on any one question. If questions are worth different numbers of points, make sure you answer the ones with the most point values and allow enough time for answering them.

      I forgot to mention - eat a good breakfast - or meal before hand, but not one that will put you to sleep!

    Good sleep before the test is key.

    If you want to have a bit of an advantage, get a pre-workout supplement called "Craze".  It's a low-caffeine grape-drink powder that stimulates you but doesn't "buzz" you.  It's main effect in lifting heavy weight is that it clears your mind and helps you focus on what you're doing.  Because this is how it works, it also just so happens to be great for taking tests because you need to focus as much when taking a test.

    Make sure that you take it 30 to 45 minutes BEFORE the tests starts though because it's not like traditional energy drinks such as Monster, Red Bull, or those 5 Hour Energy things.  It takes a bit to begin working because of the lack of caffeine.

    Being thoroughly prepared. memory drills.
    Eating properly before like 4 days so you get all the minerals and nutrients your brain needs as well as enough rest.

    I think is good to start preparing for the test as early as possible. There is an alliteration that goes thus: Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance. Also, I believe it needful and pertinent to plan for the test because anyone who fails to plan  inadvertently, plans to fail. you must find out what the possible test questions could be and find good and practical answers to the probable questions. Talk to people who have undergone such test and ask questions about it. That really helps.
