Use visualisation to boost exam performance

In the members section of EDExam you can find an article I wrote a while ago about general life tips (login required) to consider when preparing for the exam, including a section on using meditation and visualisation.

Well my new favourite blog Expert Enough has an interesting article that talks about the utility of visualisation, and then goes through the actual techniques you can use to perform visualisation to improve your skills.  I think for a task as hard and as mind-frazzling as the ACEM Fellowship exam, doing something as simple as spending 5-10 minutes a day, say just before bed, calming your mind, putting yourself into a positive mindset and seeing yourself being successful will not only help you overcome performance anxiety, but will help you get to sleep after those intense study sessions, and may also improve your chances of getting through!
