At least a couple of the answers will probably sound like they could be correct. Don’t be tempted to mark the first answer that sounds good. “Use the test to help you take the test. Sometimes questions give you information that help you answer other questions.” John Look for key words in True/False questions. Statements with absolute words such as all, always, never, every, and none in them are usu- ally false. Statements with usually, often, sometimes, most, and many in them are usually true. ReadTrue/False questions very carefully. One word will often determine whether a statement is True or False. Know how to approach essay questions. u Read each question and then start with the easiest one. This will help you gain confidence. It will also give you time to think about how to answer the harder questions. Note how many points each essay is worth, and adjust the time you spend on each accordingly. u Before you do any writing, do some brainstorming. Jot down the key words, ideas, and points that you want to cover in your answer. If you have time, organize your ideas into a simple outline. If not, just number your ideas in the order you want to present them. u Write neatly, using clear, concise, complete sentences. Inyouropening paragraph, restate the question and tell the reader what he/she can expect to learn from your essay. In your middle paragraphs, present examples, details, and facts to support the points you’re making. In your final paragraph, restate the most important points, draw con- clusions, or write a brief summary. Finally, reread your entire essay and make corrections. u If you don’t know the answer to an essay question, take a couple of minutes to write down what you do know about the subject. You may hit on something and get partial credit. If you don’t have time to complete an essay, write your teacher a note explaining that you ran out of time. Then briefly list the points you would have covered. Again, you might get partial credit.
