Test Preparation System for Dental Assisting Exam
Taking this exam is no picnic, and neither is getting ready for it. Your future career in dental assisting depends on you getting a high score on the various parts of the test, but there are all sorts of pitfalls that can keep you from doing your best on this all - important exam. Here are some of the obstacles that can stand in the way of your success:
- being unfamiliar with the format of the exam
- being paralyzed by test anxiety
- leaving your preparation to the last minute or not preparing at all
- not knowing vital test-taking skills: how to pace yourself through the exam, how to use the process of elimination, and when to guess
- not being in tip - top mental and physical shape
- messing up on exam day by having to work on an empty stomach or shivering through the exam because the room is cold
What’s the common denominator in all these test-taking pitfalls? One word: control. Who’s in control, you or the exam?
The LearningExpress Test Preparation System puts you in control. In just nine easy - to - follow steps, you will learn everything you need to know to make sure that you are in charge of your preparation and your performance on the exam. Other test takers may let the exam get the better of them; other test takers may be unprepared or out of shape, but not you. After completing this chapter, you will have taken all the steps you need to get a high score on the dental assisting exam.
Here’s how the LearningExpress Test Preparation System works: nine easy steps lead you through everything you need to know and do to get ready for this exam. Each of the steps listed below and on the following pages includes both reading about the step and one or more activities. It’s important that you do the activities along with the reading, or you won’t be getting the full benefit of the system. Each step tells you approximately how much time that step will take you to complete.
- Step 1. Get Information
- Step 2. Conquer Test Anxiety
- Step 3. Make a Plan
- Step 4. Learn to Manage Your Time
- Step 5. Learn to Use the Process of Elimination
- Step 6. Know When to Guess
- Step 7. Reach Your Peak Performance Zone
- Step 8. Get Your Act Together
- Step 9. Do It! (10 minutes) Total time for complete system
We estimate that working through the entire system will take you approximately three hours. It’s perfectly okay if you work at a faster or slower pace. If you can take a whole afternoon or evening, you can work through the whole LearningExpress Test Preparation System in one sitting. Otherwise, you can break it up, and do just one or two steps a day for the next several days. It’s up to you—remember, you are in control.
