Note to increase your test score:
Take a moment to estimate how much time you'll have for each section of the test and each question. Allow enough time for more difficult sections or sections that are weighted more heavily in the final test grade.
Pace yourself so you can complete the test in the allotted time frame.
Complete the questions you know first then come back and tackle the problems you're not sure about after.
The first answer that pops in your mind is usually the correct answer. Don't change answers unless you're sure the answer you've chosen is wrong.
It may be counterproductive to review answers and make changes – especially if you're struggling to get through the test.
Do not lose confidence or waste time if you encounter confusing or difficult questions. Answer the questions you know first.
If you have no clue about the correct answer, make an educated guess if it will not count against your score.
