Tips for Taking the Test

Here are some pointers and tips that may help you take these tests:

  • Follow a balanced study “diet”:

    • Look at an exam topic from several perspectives

    • Understand the actual exam objectives

    • Know your learning preferences and select study methods suited to them

    • Memorizing obvious factual knowledge may not deliver enough

  • Practice several times before the actual test

  • Get a good night’s sleep before the exam day; cramming until the wee hours of the morning will not help you.

  • During the test:

    • Slow down and carefully read the questions and all possible answers.

    • Do not read more into the question than what is stated.

    • In multiple-choice questions, eliminate the choices that are not correct and then determine the correct answer from the remaining choices.

    • The BEST choice is always the right choice.

    • Recheck your answers.

    • Remain as calm as possible.
