Get a good night's sleep.
Eat a healthy breakfast.
Wear comfortable clothing, as long as you follow school dress code.
Do not forget to take medications as prescribed by your doctor.
If you are supposed to wear glasses or contacts, wear them.
Be on time to school.
Pace yourself during the test. Remember you have as much time as you need.
Don't worry about the whole test at once-tackle questions one at a time.
Don't "score" yourself as you take the test.
Don't look for letter patterns of correct answers.
Don't panic if you have a memory lapse or mental block. This is normal. Go
on to the next item and come back to the trouble spot later.
Don't expect to know the answer to every question. Expect some items to be
too hard. Just do your best.
Avoid unnecessary clock-watching, but do be aware of the time.
Ignore other test takers.
Don't give up!
Read all directions carefully.
Do the sample questions even though you think you understand.
If you don't completely understand what to do, don't hesitate to ask for
Sometimes you will need to reread the directions or the questions to be
sure you are answering what is being asked.
Don't assume that all the questions in the same section follow the same
pattern. One question may ask for a true statement, the next may ask which
statement is not true.
Don't guess wildly on a question. Try to eliminate one or two choices to a
question. If you guess, make an "educated guess."
Make sure that your answers are on the answer document.
Read the questions first. Then read the paragraph.
Understand that reading to answer specific questions is a different task
than reading for content mastery.
Answer the easiest questions first.
Skip over the more difficult items and come back to them later. List these

Taking Care of your Pets in the Summer Heat
Summer is a time for both you and your pet to
enjoy the sunshine and outdoors, but along with the fun, the season also
offers up situations that can endanger your pet. By taking precautions,
you can decrease the chance that disaster will happen. The HSUS (Humane
Society offers these tips for pet owners to keep their furry friends safe
Never Leave Your Pet in the Car
In nice weather you may be tempted to take your pet with you in the car
while you travel or do errands. But during warm weather, the inside of
your car can reach 120 degrees in a matter of minutes, even if you're
parked in the shade. This can mean real trouble for your companion animals
left in the car.
Dogs and cats can't perspire and can only dispel heat by panting and
through the pads of their feet. Pets who are left in hot cars even briefly
can suffer from heat exhaustion, heat stroke, brain damage, and can even
die. Don't think that just because you'll be gone "just a minute" that
your pet will be safe while you're gone; even an air-conditioned car with
the motor off isn't healthy for your pet.
To avoid any chance that your pet will succumb to the heat of a car this
summer, be sure to play it safe by leaving your pet cool and refreshed at
home while you're on the road. And if you do happen to see a pet in a car
alone during the hot summer months, alert the management of the store
where the car is parked. If the owner does not return promptly, call local
animal control or the police department immediately.
Don't Put Your Pet In the Back of a Truck
It is very dangerous, and in some states illegal, to drive with a dog in
the back of a pick-up truck. Not only can flying debris cause serious
injury, but a dog may be unintentionally thrown into traffic if the driver
suddenly hits the brakes, swerves, or is hit by another car. Dogs should
ride either in the cab (in a crate or wearing a seat belt harness designed
for dogs) or in a secured crate in the bed of the truck.
Watch Out For Fertilizers and Deadly Plants
Summer is often a time when people fertilize their lawns and work in their
gardens. But beware: Plant food, fertilizer, and insecticides can be fatal
if your pet ingests them. In addition, more than 700 plants can produce
physiologically active or toxic substances in sufficient amounts to cause
harmful effects in animals.
With people and dogs spending more time outside, dog bites are likely to
increase in the summer months. Spaying or neutering your dog reduces the
likelihood that he will bite and provides many other health benefits.
Pet Care 101
Make sure your pet is always wearing a collar and identification tag. If
you are separated from your pet, an ID tag may very well be his or her
Check with your veterinarian to see if your pets should be taking
heartworm prevention medication. Heartworm disease, which is transmitted
by mosquitoes, can be fatal in both dogs and cats. Another summertime
threat is fleas and ticks. Use only flea and tick treatments recommended
by your veterinarian. Some over-the-counter flea and tick products can be
toxic, even when used according to instructions.
Pets and pools can equal disaster. Prevent free access to pools and always
supervise a pet in a pool. Provide plenty of water and shade for your pets
while they're enjoying the great outdoors so they can stay cool.
If you plan on traveling with your pet during the summer, take the time to
prepare for your furry friends in advance. Many airlines have summer pet
embargoes, and most trains and ships do not allow pets other than service
animals. The HSUS has information on traveling with your pet that may make
the difference between a pleasant trip and a vacation nightmare.
If You Can't Stand the Heat...
Pets need exercise even when it is hot, but extra care needs to be taken
with older dogs, short-nosed dogs, and those with thick coats. On very hot
days, limit exercise to early morning or evening hours. Keep in mind that
asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet's paws. Pets can get sunburned
too, and your pet may require sunscreen on his or her nose and ear tips.
Pets with light-colored noses or light-colored fur on their ears are
particularly vulnerable to sunburn and skin cancer.
Your pet can suffer from heat exhaustion and heat stroke. These conditions
are very serious and could cause your pet to die. You should be aware of
the signs of heat stress, which could include heavy panting, glazed eyes,
a rapid pulse, unsteadiness, a staggering gait, vomiting, or a deep red or
If your pet does become overheated, you need to immediately lower his body
temperature. Move your pet into the shade and apply cool (not cold) water
over his body to gradually lower his core body temperature. Apply cold
towels or ice packs to your pet's head, neck, and chest only. Let your pet
drink small amounts of water or lick ice cubes. Most importantly, get him
to a veterinarian immediately.
Play It Safe on the 4th
Don't take your pets to crowded summer events such as concerts or fairs.
The loud noises and crowds, combined with the heat, can be stressful and
dangerous for pets. For your pet's well being, leave her at home. Be
especially aware of these threats during holidays, such as the Fourth of
Help Us Spread the Word!
The HSUS has educational posters available to
download and print here [PDF file], or purchase them in bulk ($3 for
10, $5 for 25). Store managers can post inside their windows to remind
shoppers that leaving your pet in a parked car can be a deadly mistake. In
addition, 4" x 9" two-sided flyers are also available (50 for $3). To
order please send a check, your mailing address and the number of posters
or flyers that you would like to receive to the following address: HSUS/Hot
