Facing final exams? Let's take a moment to
breathe deep, think about the tasks in front of you, and understand how
to accomplish these tasks efficiently.
That's better. The panic is already shedding off of you like rain on a waxed car.
When it comes to taking tests online there are a few steps you can take
to ensure a nice smooth exam. If you fail to take these steps, you
might not necessarily have problems, but why expose yourself to more
stress than you currently possess.
Before the test begins:
Clear your browser's cache.
Restart your computer, or turn the
wireless card off/on at the testing location (this makes sure your
computer is connected to the nearest wireless access point).
Close all nonessential programs.
During testing, you should refrain from virus scanning, Skyping, World
of Warcrafting, Tweeting, and anything else that is on your computer
that is not related to your test. Not only do other programs distract
you, they could potentially disrupt your connection to the internet in a
way that can negatively impact your ability to take tests.
