  18. 18. Test Tips  Read the question, read all the answers, pick the one that appears to be accurate, then read the question again. There were a few questions where one word in the question changed which answer was correct.  On many questions, I used the process of elimination to come up with the answer. Like: I know these 3 options are NOT correct, so that makes this one correct.  You have the ability to mark any question you like and then you can come back to it at the end. Do this if you are uncertain!!  There are a few questions that have screenshots (they call them Exhibits) mark any question that has an Exhibit. These “pictures” from MS Project 2010 can help you answer other questions at the end.  Just like the PMP exam, have a game plan. I did 60 questions, took a break, then answered the last 15 and reviewed my marked questions. 18
