This article provides a brief overview of the current situation that high-stakes test takers are facing. A common problem the high-stakes test taker is experiencing is that they have to deal with tremendous pressure by themselves which could be caused by the test, the preparation process, the teachers and the parents. In results, their test performance could be affected, the decline of their mental health condition associated with the increasing stress level, and those issues could eventually escalate into suicide and physical violence. To shed light on those issues, the author developed a stress management handbook by choosing one of the high-stakes tests which are the TOEFL test. Included in the stress management handbook for the TOEFL test takers are test-taking strategies, tips, teaching methods, and learning skills. To sum up, the stress management handbook could improve the test performance and guide the test taker to gain a higher score without compromise their interest in learning.
