Tips for the Test

1) Use your test booklet! You may write as much as you like in your test booklet (but not your bubble sheet) so be an active test taker and mark your test.
  • Eliminate wrong answers
  • Mark important reading sections
  • Mark questions you skipped or are unsure of

2) Make educated guesses!
  • Eliminate at least 2 choices before guessing
  • When in doubt, decide if the answer should be Positive, Negative, or Neutral
  • Focus on what you know

3) Be efficient!
  • Do the easy questions first
    • If you are stronger in a certain type of question begin answering those questions first
  • Don’t get stuck on one question for too long
  • Become familiar with the directions and how certain types of questions are structured so you don’t waste time
  • Check the time often or have a clock in front of you

4) Mark your answer sheet correctly!
  • Make sure you bubbled in clearly and there are no stray marks
  • If you skipped a question, make sure you continue to bubble in correctly
  • Write your essay clearly and within the lines of the answer sheet
