Overall Test Tactics

  1. Always have a Target Score and prepare your own plan accordingly
  2. Be careful in the first portion of every section. Successful answers to the questions early in your exam (first 5 questions) will lead to higher scores.
  3. Use the process of elimination to cross out wrong answers
  4. Double check your work and answer before you click on the screen bubble.
  5. You cannot skip any question and you cannot go back after you've answered a question.
  6. Answer every question, making educated guess if you have to. Just try to eliminate one or more choices before guessing.
  7. Don't spend too much time on any one question. You should spend only seconds on the easiest questions, and hesitate to spend more than 1-2 minutes on even the hardest ones.
  8. Bring a watch to the test center. There may not be a working clock.
  9. Don't bring a calculator or any Electronic devices since you're not allowed to use them.
