Hello everyone this is my first post on the forum.

I am currently applying to become an officer in the US Navy. In order to do so, I need to take an aptitude test, (called the ASTB), and one of the sections is 30 math questions in 25 minutes. The math questions are basic algebra and very basic geometry.

I studied using every practice test I could find. I took the test for real several weeks ago and did not score high . I would describe my problem as being "mentally paralyzed" during the exam, that is, my brain almost "freezes up" and I find it very hard to think about the problems.

Has this happened to anyone? I'm really in need of some advice! How did you get over your math test anxiety?

Thanks!
