Facing Your Fears
Most people do not like exams, so anxiety is normal, but try to identify its source. Are you afraid of failing? Are you sabotaging yourself because you are afraid of success and all the responsibility it may lead to? Are you unprepared to take the test? Do you have a learning disability that keeps you from concentrating? Do you just have poor study habits?

Some of the smartest people in the world cannot pass the same tests that people with ordinary intelligence, diligence and a sound strategy will breeze through. As long as you approach the Series 3 (or any test) with a plan of attack, then you are stacking the odds in your favor.

Remember that you have passed tests before. Maybe you did not pass all of them, but you have passed plenty of them and the ones you fell short on you can look at as learning experiences.
