Pointers for Test Taking
- Read the directions to find out if you're to look for the correct answer or the best answer.
- Read all the answer choices before deciding on your answer.
- Look for tricky words such as not, never, except, and unless that can change a question's meaning.
- Count the number of blanks in each question to know how many words to write for an answer.
- Decide what word or number best answers that question and write it in the blank.
- Read the sentence with the word to make sure it make sense.
- Read both lists before making any matches.
- Unless the directions say you can use an answer for more than once, cross out each answer as you match it.
- Read the whole question before answering it.
- Look for words- such as all, every, always, and never - that often make a statement false.
- To mark an answer true, all parts of it must be true. If only part of a statement is true, mark it false.
