HELP Workshop

Do you currently experience test anxiety? Do you know how to develop a study guide for taking tests? Cizek and Burg (2006) found that “test anxiety affects up to 40% of students.”  Bradley et al (2010) found that “61% of students are affected by this at least some of the time, and 26% almost always!”

If you are one of the many students who struggle with test anxiety, please attend this Tuesday’s HELP workshop. This session will help you understand why you experience test anxiety as well as provide proven successful strategies for reducing your level of stress and anxiety.
