The article describes a computer program that has been developed to provide information, advice and training in taking tests, especially multiple choice tests, and to help cope with negative thoughts on taking a test. A pilot study investigated the experiences of (test)anxious students with computer assisted treatment of test anxiety. Although students rated the programs as easy to use and useful, only a slight increase in competence to take a test was detected. Emotional support was experienced by a small group of students. Limitations of the program became clear. The structure of the program is rigid, while adaptation to the personal needs of the user is limited.
