Ensure you know exactly how the test will progress. Practice all the procedures so you will be confident even when under the stress of the test. Know the procedure to use when you totally screw up a pattern and must stop. Be prepared for all contingencies. Your instructor will tell you most everything you need to know before a test, but anticipate problems you may have and ask your instructor what you should do in those circumstances.
Do not change your routine
Do not change your daily routine before a test, such as diet or sleep patterns. Do not start something new or stop something old the week before a test, such as adding more exercise or stopping smoking.
Eat plenty complex carbohydrates the night before a test, such as pasta. Eat a light meal just before a test, keeping in mind when you will need the energy.
