  9. 9. 8. Eliminate and make your best guess. All tests have questions that are meant to stump you. Don’t leave the tough ones blank. Eliminate any choices that are obviously wrong. Then look at the leftover choices and make your best guess.
  10. 10. 9. Mark lightly, then darken. Mark your answers lightly the first time through, so that if you need to erase an answer, you won’t leave a smudge. Be sure to go back through and fill in the bubbles carefully with a dark pencil mark.
