Test Taking Tips for Students

General Strategies

  • Follow all directions.
  • Read the whole question. Think about what the question asks before choosing your answer.
  • Try to answer every question before turning in your test booklet and answer sheet.
  • Don't spend too much time on any one question. Answer the easier questions first but be sure to note the questions you skip.
  • Come back to difficult questions. Try to eliminate some of the choices. Choose the best answer.
  • When you mark the multiple-choice answer sheet, make sure that the number on the answer sheet matches the number of the question you are answering.
  • Check your answers for mistakes.
  • Go back and recheck your answers if you finish before the testing session ends.
