Testing Tips

- Know how you test best ...Should you read through the questions first? Move on after 30-seconds? Write down everything you know and then start? Should you comment on questions? Is it better to earmark questions and go back if there's time? or Can you comment now?


- Remember there is a time limit!! 4 hours 


- Study - there's no replacement for being fluent with the material.  Practice and you'll persist!


- Use phrases, mnemonics, or funny scenarios, images or ways that help you remember terms and concepts that trip you up.


- Avoid adding in information or making inferences about information that you were not provided in the question. Don't OVER analyze Future Analyst!


 - Read the question and ALL of your choices carefully - avoid careless mistakes.
