How do I reduce my test taking anxiety?

by Maz

I think test anxiety is getting the better of me. How can I reduce my test taking anxiety?

I usually know all the material before I take a test. When I sit down before the test I can do the problems.

But when I actually take the test I get so nervous that I can't concentrate and I forget everything. I am unable to do the test questions which I should be able to do.

I think I get so nervous before my exam that I stuff the questions up. I don't know what to do.

Any advice or suggestions?
