Academic Resources

Feeling anxious before tests and exams? Feeling that extra bit of energy before an evaluation can help us be sharper and more alert, but too much energy can negatively affect our concentration. If you are finding yourself with too much worry before a test, check out some of the resources for test anxiety through SASS.
