Recommendations for mental warm-up on test day?

hey everyone,

I'm curious about what a good mental warm-up would consist of on test day? Obviously, it's critical to conserve one's mental energy for the test. There are also those who require no warm-up at all. But, personally, I find it necessary to warm-up as it takes me time to regulate my focus. Any experiences/recommendations would be appreciated.

    1 game/1 passage/10 random questions from an LR section is my go to when I actually do a warmup.

    Really interested as to what others are doing in this regard as well. I never do any questions prior to taking a timed PT and wonder if this could negatively impact my score?

    I would recommend a warm-up that gets you ready and pumped to take the test. Ready, as in switching your brain on to critical reading/thinking mode, and pumped, as in feeling great about your abilities.

    For me, that meant doing a favorite LG section, a favorite RC passage, and the first 10 questions of an LR section.

    I spent the rest of the morning before the test getting my head in the game -- eating well and thinking positive thoughts. I went into the test with a better mindset than I'd ever had before a PT.
