# Do not choose “None of the above", if you are certain one of the statements is true. And do not choose “All of the above” if you are certain one of the statements is false.

Short Answer Questions
# Try to anticipate questions that will be asked on the test and prepare for them.
# Do not leave an answer blank; write down your thoughts, even if you don't get the exact answer. Partial credit is better than none.

# Sometimes other parts of the test may give you clues to what the answer may be.
# If you can think up of more than one answer for a question, ask the instructor what to do.
