This chapter examines test taking at the post-secondary level. A review of the literature on test-wiseness and test-taking skills, coaching for tests, and test anxiety is provided. A section on implications for practice contains suggestions on how instructors can integrate strategies of preparing for and taking tests into curriculum and how students can apply them. Finally, we include a brief summary of implications for future research.
