As students head back to the classroom, many are feeling a sense of dread...and not just the kind that comes from an end to the carefree days of summer.

The worry may be most intense for those who suffer from Test Anxiety.

Ohio University Zanesville Professor Dev Polling ((POHL ing)) has directed research about Test Anxiety and some of it's rather discouraging....

Poling says their research shows that students who suffer from test anxiety have a problem with self confidence...

Also, Polling says NEW college students can develop Test Anxiety if they get off to a bad start...

If you have test anxiety, here are some things to do:
-Prepare for the exam ahead of time -- "Cramming" is a big culprit of test anxiety:
-Get plenty of rest and sleep the night before the exam:
-Don't forget to eat the day of the exam, preferably something nutritious.
