Can We Really Teach Test-taking Skills?
Foster, Sharon K.; Paulk, Allene; Dastoor Barbara Riederer
New Horizons in Adult Education, v13 n1 Fall 1999

Strategies such as affirmations, appeals to different learning modalities, positive anchors, and mental dress rehearsals can help students deal with test anxiety. (SK)
