Re: I test on Saturday: Now, I'm feeling a bit nervous.

Try to think positively. Just imagine yourself taking your test and feeling confident. Try to relax and take a deep breath. Stiffness is your opponent. At least the run through gave you some idea of some things you might want to pay attention to when taking your test. It would be worse to do fantastic in the run through and then not to be able to live up to it during the test. Think that the test is your opportunity to show people how much you have learned. I'm sure your Sensei will be hoping your test is a positive experience for you. Testing is more like being in a stressful, battle situation so you can see how you would do in such a situation. It will be good for you to be able to look back and see how far you've come the next time you test. Good luck!
