  7. 7.  If there is no guessing penalty, always take an educated guess and select an answer.  Don't keep on changing your answer, usually your first choice is the right one, unless you misread the question.  In "All of the above" and "None of the above" choices, if you are certain one of the statements is true don't choose "None of the above" or one of the statements are false don't choose "All of the above".  In a question with an "All of the above" choice, if you see that at least two correct statements, then "All of the above" is probably the answer.  A positive choice is more likely to be true than a negative one.  Usually the correct answer is the choice with the most information. TIPS ON ANSWERING ESSAY QUESTIONS  Read the directions carefully. Pay close attention to whether you are supposed to answer all the essays or only a specified amount (e.g. "Answer 2 out of the 3 questions).  Make sure that you understand what the question is asking you. If you're not, ask your instructor.  Make sure that you write down everything that is asked of you and more. The more details and facts that you write down, the higher your grade is going to be.  Budget your time, don't spend the entire test time on one essay.  If the question is asking for facts, don't give your personal opinion on the topic.  When writing your essay, try to be as neat as possible, neater papers usually receive higher marks.  Make an outline before writing your essay. This way your essay will be more organized and fluid. If you happen to run out of time, most instructors will give you partial credit for the ideas that you have outlined.  Don't write long introductions and conclusions, the bulk of your time should be spent on answering the question(s) asked.  Focus on one main idea per a paragraph.  If you have time left at the end, proofread your work and correct any errors.  Budget your time. If you have an hour to write 3 essays, spend no more than 20 minutes on each essay, then if you have time left over at the end go back and finish any incomplete essays.  If you aren't sure about an exact date or number, use approximations e.g. "Approximately 5000" or "In the late 17th century."  If you make a mistake, simply draw a line through it, it is much neater and quicker than erasing it.
  8. 8. TIPS ON ANSWERING TRUE OR FALSE  Usually there are more true answers than false on most tests.  If there is no guessing penalty, then guess. You have a 50% chance of getting the right answer.  Read through each statement carefully, and pay attention to the qualifiers and keywords.  Qualifiers like "never, always, and every mean that the statement must be true all of the time. Usually these type of qualifiers lead to a false answer.  Qualifiers like "usually, sometimes, and generally" mean that the statement can be considered true or false depending on the circumstances. Usually these type of qualifiers lead to an answer of true.  If any part of the question is false, then the entire statement is false but just because part of a statement is true doesn't necessarily make the entire statement true. TIPS FOR ANSWERING OBJECTIVE TESTS 1. Answer all questions in order without skipping or jumping around. Identify doubtful answers by marking in the margin and recheck these as time permits after all questions have been answered. 2. Do not linger too long on easy questions. 3. Reread all questions containing negative wording such as “not” or “least.” 4. Watch for modifying or limiting phrases inserted into the true/ false questions. 5. Be alert for multiple ideas or concepts within the same true/ false statement. 6. Be cautious about changing your answer to a true- false or multiple choice question without a good reason.
