Multiple-Choice Tips

Take your time. Read each question and each answer to yourself—twice. Underline as you read to ensure that you’ve read every word of the question and all the answers.

Going with your gut, circle the correct answer. Nine out of 10 times, our first guess is right, but we often talk ourselves out of it. Don’t change an answer unless you’re absolutely sure.

Answer every question that you’re sure of. Put a dash next to those you’re unsure about and a star next to those that you don’t know at all.

After you’ve run through the test, revisit the difficult questions. If there’s time, slowly reread and answer each question. Unless you read a question differently the second time, stick with your first answer.
