Tips for Success on Test Day

  • Dress comfortably for any room temperature. Eat a good breakfast.
  • Arrive at the test center at least 30 minutes early.
  • Follow directions carefully to avoid wasting time.
  • Do not panic. Concentrate on the task in front of you. Do not think about questions you have already answered.
  • Do not spend too much time on one question.
  • Do not leave questions blank. If you are not sure of the answer, make the best possible choice.
  • Pace yourself to answer every question and avoid rushing at the end.
