What advice/tips would you give a high school student who is not a very good test taker? What kinds of things helped you take tests well? What sort of study tips worked best for you? Did you have any sort of pre-test rituals that worked?

This question was asked by a high school senior in Los Angeles, Ca who just received her ACT test scores. She's disappointed with how she performed but plans on retaking the exam. She's applying to several University of California schools this semester. #college #university #test-management...
