Preparing for the Day of the Test for McGraw-Hill's ASVAB
Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the things that you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not.
The Day Before the ASVAB Test
It's too late anyway. Studying for the ASVAB is not something you do the day before the test. At this point, it's too late to stuff information into your mind. If you paid attention to the advice of the author, you have undertaken a steady pace of study that is directed toward success on the test.
Exercise Your Body
If you have studied hard and followed your study plan, you should take the day before the test to pay attention to your personal well-being. Take a run or a long walk, play tennis or basketball, go rock climbing, or have a picnic. Do whatever physical activity gives you joy. Relax and feel good. Drink a good amount of water.
Revel in the fact that you have worked hard and will have the opportunity to show what you know tomorrow. Be excited that your hard work will finally have a payoff as you take the ASVAB. You've worked hard, and now you will obtain your reward.
Have a Healthy Dinner
Eat a decent, low-fat meal. Chicken or fish and a good supply of vegetables would be appropriate. Don't drink any alcoholic beverages or high-sugar or caffeine drinks.
You have worked hard for the past several months. If you have followed the advice in this book, you should go to bed feeling confident and relaxed, and with a smile on your face. Go to sleep early and set your alarm well in advance of the time you need to be at the testing center. Setting a backup alarm is a good idea. If you have trouble sleeping, do some relaxation exercises.
The Day of the ASVAB Test
Eat a Good Breakfast
Have a modest breakfast, but lay off the butter, sausage, bacon, and syrup. Eat lightly, choosing foods that will give you energy and focus. Cereal and milk with some fruit would be good, as would oatmeal. A cup of coffee might sharpen your edge. Eating too much or eating foods that are too fatty can make you feel, think, and act sluggish, and you may not perform your best. Your best bet is to be eating healthy meals all along. One morning of eating right won't help you much. By all means, don't go to the test with an empty stomach.
