That happens to me sometimes, too.  It happens more when I've been studying a lot and I'm fatigued.  I don't really know what to do about it.  Sometimes I'll take a few deep breaths and that seems to help a little.

I was considering drinking one of those energy drinks like 20 mins before a practice test to see how it works.  I just would hate to come off the high halfway through the test.  I'm also considering cocaine.

I think the later maybe be better than the former. Those sugar crashes are rough.

Yeah but I'm worried about the addiction part.  Not really ready to suck **** for money.   :P

Just got to practice timing - and not let your mind drift.  Think, concentrate on the question at hand, and then just evaluate what needs to be done.  If you think into too much or start getting nervous - you're doomed to mess up.

Caffeine for me makes it 10x more difficult to concentrate. If you're going to do this I'd definitely recommend testing it out first.
