Sharon Mikkelson, you might want to order a copy of the following text or
request an examination copy to see if it might meet your needs for your
course.

I have been teaching study skill classes for 17 years at our university. I
have just completed previewing a text, The Confident Student, fourth
edition, ISBN: 0-618-04662-3. There are two excellent chapters in this text
about Test Prep and Reducing Test Anxiety (Chapters 11 and 12). There is
even some discussion related to raising scores on standardized tests. To
request an examination copy I contacted 1-800-733-1717 or you may fax
1-800-733-1810.
