Lately, for the past couple of tests I've written, I suddenly blank out and can't recall any information...
Normally I've been fine, but writing tests has suddenly become more difficult for me. I do study a lot, though - reviewing notes and doing questions. Perhaps I'm not studying efficiently? I don't know..
*Do you have any tips on how I can improve my test-taking?
Also, I always do so poorly on the multiple choice part (really, I'd prefer long answer questions). I know about the process of elimination, but do you have any other tips for answering multiple choice questions?
Thanks for your help.
In the right column, there's an excellent section on taking tests more efficiently.
Scroll down until you see the "taking tests" sections.

There isn't a specific section here for test-taking skills, but there is one for concentration and memory.
