BREAK TIME CHECKLIST

Go to the restroom. Be first in line.

Walk - Stretch - Breathe

Snack if you need one.

Get a drink of water.

Stay focused. Do not gab with those who are not. 

Stay positive. Get keyed up for the math sections. 


QUICK REVIEW OF EACH SECTION

(Read while eating breakfast.)

READING

First 10 seconds: Get the title, author, and any extra statements about the passage. (Shake hands with the author. Make eye contact.) 

The first paragraph is the most important. Walk in then speed up. 

Keep moving. Be careful not to let your pace drift. 

Read questions carefully. Of the four answer choices, two are dummy answers, one is good, and one is best. Pick the best of the four. 

Reset yourself before each passage.


WRITING

Commit to a perfect score as you read the title of each passage. 

Read carefully through the passage and answer questions as you go.

Put dots on your answer sheet of questions you want to go back to. REMEMBER to only change answers when you are perfectly clear the new answer is correct.

Don't waste a second. Don't skip a word. Every word counts. 


MATH

Make sure you have the entire question in your head so you can choose the best path for the problem. 

 

Look over your formula sheet once more this morning. Leave it in the car with your cell phone. 


You've put in good prep leading up to today!

Stay focused this morning and during the break. Get yourself centered before each section of the test.

Remember your best performances! Let them lead you through the test. Remember the performances that were not so great. Let these guide you through the tougher questions. 

Stay calm. 

READ CAREFULLY!

THINK CLEARLY!

KEEP A GOOD PACE! 

Let today be a PERFECT swing at a PERFECT pitch!


Let me know how it goes this morning. Text me when you get you scores.
