I do not know your organization, school, or instructor so I do not have any idea what you may be asked at testing, but here are some generalized hints.
- Most martial art instructors, or any other type of teachers, will insure they cover test questions in class. At some point during the curriculum, all or most of potential test questions will be answered in class. Sometimes, instructors will ask questions in class that will be on a test, and you will be required find the answers on your own.
- Other students who have tested before this instructor are the best sources for possible questions that may be asked during a test.
- Sometimes instructors will ask questions at a test to which they do not expect you to know the answers just to see how well you handle yourself under pressure in a stressful situation. If this happens, say calm and confident, and either state that you do not know the answer now but you will find the answer, or, if you know something about the subject, state that you do not know the answer but here is what I think the answer may be.
- Remember the 7-P's: proper prior planning prevents piss poor performance.
- Make all answers clear, precise, and concise; do not ramble.
- One thing to remember in life is to always appear calm, confident, and in control, even when you are not. Always act as if you know what you are doing, even when you do not, because most people will not know the difference. If you act as if you are an expert, most people will think you are an expert. This will help you get over humps in life, but remember that at some point, you will have to prove that you are what you purport to be.
You will do well on your test.
