bullet Read the questions carefully. Be sure you know what the question is asking before you select an answer. Many questions are missed simply because the thrust of the question is missed.
bullet Do not look for the perfect answer.  There might not be one! Often you will be looking for the answer choice which is most right or least wrong.
