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?
