When I was taking normal Algebra 1 and Geometry, I always Aced my tests. (Even without doing homework). However, I decided to bump myself into Accelerated Algebra 2/Precalculus in order to take Trig/CalcA in the summer and AP Calc BC senior year. I'm naturally good when it comes to understanding concepts or what is asked of me, but ever since I enrolled my self into this accelerated/advanced student math pace, I've been "chocking" when it comes to my math grade. Here is a showdown of my grades. First test: B Second and third test: D Overall grade: C I've been doing my homework, and I even went to tutor a few times during my lunch. I'm clearly dedicated and its not like i'm blowing this class off. My problem is when it comes to test, I never feel like i'm prepared enough (even though I probably studied 4 hours in total before the day of the test). I stress out and get extremely nerv-racking when I take the math tests and I feel like I forget formulas and basic steps to solving a math problem from the excess of stress. My class started out a new chapter and i've been doing/understanding my homework. I want to get an A on this test to make my second quarter easier for me to attain an overall B- (80.00%) at minimum for the overall semester. Please share any tips/notes or anything else that could suffice me. side-note: Could over-studying make me stressed out and instead degrade my performance?
