10 Tips to Manage the NAVLE and Veterinary School Stress

Posted by Jessica Gramlich on November 18, 2018 at 8:49 PM
For many students getting into veterinarian school is the culmination of a lifelong dream, years of preparation, time, money, hopes and sacrifice.

The NAVLE® is the biggest test ever - more than three years of knowledge crammed into one day - and you may be overwhelmed and even a bit anxious, but remember...it's just a test.

We at VetPrep have been there and we understand the freak out (it's perfectly normal!). Things start to get real and that can be very scary, but I’m here to tell you that it’s going to be OK.

You’ve been so busy with clinics all summer, and now with the NAVLE coming up quickly, you’ve made a study plan! Right??? If you have been busy preparing for the big test already, your classmates are likely envious.
