Don’t be anxious or nervous and if that’s hard work on it. Do the test prep so many times that it is just second nature and you show up to the test confident and calm. You’ll still feel like the test kicked your ass, but the less nervous and anxious you are the better you’ll do. This applies to everything at the Academy. Probably the biggest reason why people fail is nerves and anxiety. People get busy and they fall apart. Make mistakes and can’t get over it. Second guess themselves. The sad part is there really isn’t an excuse to be nervous or anxious as we all know what to expect on the ATSA and at the Academy. I am currently at the Academy and I get nervous and anxious before problems but I literally do breathing exercises before the problem starts to calm down and once the problem starts I make sure I’m always doing or thinking of something to leave no room for nerves.any advice for us still to take it?? my anxiety is killing me lol i scheduled the latest possible date to have time to prepare, now i just want to take it and get it over with.
