Do you get nervous right before a big exam? We all experience anxiety periodically. Some of this anxiety can be tied to specific events such as the first day of school, taking a test or going on a first date. In some cases, a little anxiety can actually be beneficial, motivating you to study hard in order to prepare for the exam.

For some people, however, this anxiety can become so overwhelming that they have difficulty concentrating during the test or forget the information that they studied. Test anxiety can vary considerably from one student to another. Some describe feeling "butterflies," shakiness or a racing heartbeat during an exam, while others experience a full-blown panic attack when faced with a testing situation.
