Everyone give one tip on what to AVOID the day before and the day of the SATs. Make this humorous and informative.

My Tip:
Dont masturbate (I've heard from people this makes you tired the day of the test)

But seriously, I recommend you avoid

Too much carbs, because if makes you sluggish
Too much liquid
Something that makes your stomach queasy, such as beans and eggs

Keep this list moving PLEASE

Number One thing not to do the day before:

Worry about what to do the day before.

Worrying in itself negates all the other supposed preparations, including study. Just be yourself, get your score, be happy with it.

Obviously one should care about the test. Slight anxiety can help.

One should not worry.

Remaining calm is priceless.

well i guess the day before the test is probably not the best day to kill yourseilf. although to other it may be the best day to kill yourseilf, but you still shouldn't kill yourseilf.

Well the guy behind me last time went into a long story about how he got both wasted and stoned the night before. I'm assuming he didn't do so hot.

People have recommended that if you have trouble sleeping at night, you should masturbate and you'll get a good night's sleep.

But lets not turn this into a masturbation thread.

i suggest that you DON'T lie in bed and try to memorize as many words as you can. It's simply not worth it. If you're lucky, one will show up. Just get a good nights sleep.

oh, and if you don't usually eat breakfast in the morning. then the advice "eat a nice breakfast in the morning" is not for you. your body isn't used to it.

well good luck everyone and dont sit in a weird position during the test. Neck cramps are not a pretty thing

I'm in the same boat as you and I'm going to study for about another hour then go to bed. If I do terrible, I'll re-take in October.

By Jer728 (Jer728) on Friday, June 04, 2004 - 11:59 pm: Edit

Unfortunately I don't have that option because I am retaking the SAT 1 in October. Yeah, one more hour for me and then I'm going to bed...And damn this website for wasting all my study time.
