Do your best! "Test Wise" Tips

  • Relax! You will do your best if you do not worry!
  • Take it seriously; the results of the test help us to plan your education.
  • Pay attention to all directions, written and oral.
  • Read each question carefully.
  • Follow your hunches, even if you are not 100% positive.
  • Think twice before you change an answer. Your first response is more likely to be right.
  • If you change an answer, completely erase the first one.
  • If you get stuck on a problem, go to the next problem.
  • Be sure to mark each answer in the correct place.
  • Do not expect to be able to do all of the problems.
  • If you have time, go back and check your answers.

Work Carefully But Quickly
