6. FORGET ABOUT THE PREVIOUS SECTION
Seriously, forget about it. Everybody tries to guess how they did, or feels like they did good or bad on the last section (especially quant). First, IT DOESN'T MATTER ANYMORE. Your score is in the books and on a CAT test there is no way to really know how you did. Second, the verbal section is the biggest opportunity on the test to drive your score! FREAKING FORGET ABOUT IT! I've tried "guessing" how I did on a section and it doesn't matter, it's a stamina killer, and you're usually wrong. On test day I felt good on the Quant, and thought I blew the verbal. Go figure that it was the exact opposite. Buuut, my high verbal drove my overall score over 700. How many times have you read on these forums about how something got into someone's head, and they felt it affected their performance? Well, when i read that, it makes me think they are not mentally strong. When you are mentally strong, you force those thoughts out of your head, and move onto the next question... your next opportunity to take your score to the next level.

9. Know exactly what you're going to eat and drink on test day
You should litterally know exactly what you are going to eat, how much you are going to drink, and how long it will take you. I had it down to a science. I knew what I was going to have for breakfast and how much I would drink with that meal and how long before I had to use the restroom. I practiced on all of my practice tests also. During the breaks I limited myself to only 4 oz of water, knowing that I would not get the urge in the middle of the test. You need to know your body, so that none of these factors distract you on test day. For example, if you've never worn earplugs and decided not to eat the morning of your test, then you're going to hear you stomach rumpling like thunder inside your body. You need to know how you're going to react to EVERYTHING.

No. 6 - Forget about the previous section - is actually very important. In my first attempt, my quant section did not go that well... but instead of forgetting about it and concentrating on the next section I sadly couldn't take my mind off that thing. Due to this extra baggage I messed up my verbal section as well... You should definitely practice this letting go thing during the full length tests... it will help a lot...

And also planning and practicing what to eat and how much to eat on the test day can save your day... knowing before hand how much liquid your body can hold... how much you can eat to feel refreshed helps a lot during THE day...
