Biggest point...don't take huge jumps. Also, rest between sets. Don't jump from set to set with only 90-120 seconds rest. Rest 3-5 minutes or so.

If your testing a new squat max and you lift in the low 300s, try something like:

Bar x 10-15
135 x 5
185 x 1-3
225 x 1
255 x 1
285 x 1
315 x 1
330 x New 1RM attempt
