SmugHere's something to try while running practice questions (or taking the test):  Pump yourself up by trying on a little attitude.  Think, "I know this."  Be smug about it.  The question is a waste of time, too easy, unworthy of the enterprise.

Or take it a step further:  Think, "[PERSON NOT IN THE FIELD] knows this."  The question is so easy that there's no need to even have gone to social work school to get it.  Keep going:  "My kid knows this."  "My dog knows this." Beats being overwhelmed and at war with the impossibility of the test.  See how it goes.
