Tips for Taking Tests

During the Test

    • Read all directions and questions carefully before answering.
    • Even if you are a good reader, consider using the universal accommodation of having the directions and/or questions read to you - at least for the first read.
    • Stay focused.
    • Skip difficult questions until all other questions have been answered. Flag items to which to return, or keep a record of unanswered items on scrap paper.
    • Review and double-check all your answers before submitting.
    • Do your best!

Before the Test

    • Get a good night's sleep.
    • Eat a nutritious breakfast.
    • Drink plenty of water -- stay hydrated.
