    You're nervous because you're about to be hooked up to a machine that can [seemingly] read your mind.

    Stay relaxed. Think of a song or something to keep your brain busy between the test batteries or even while you're sitting there waiting to be tested.

    The polygraph examiner will go through all the questions he/she is going to ask you -before hand-. There won't be any surprises while you're wired up.

    The biggest advice I ever received was to simply RELAX. Take deep breathes before you sit in the chair and be honest. If there are any questions which you think you may have trouble on, simply discuss them wit the examiner. Tell them why the question bothers you. Don't leave anything out. They already know the truth, and if they don't, they WILL find out..... so just be up front with them.

    You'll do fine. Don't lose sleep over it.

    Good luck.

        During my poly...one of the questions asked was...."did you ever "look up" or research anything about polygraphs or prepare ahead of time for questions?"

        I thought that was funny because I had looked it up the night before on how things work and it was my only time.
