Set a Pace


When you first receive your test, quickly survey the entire test so you can determine how to budget your time. Set a pace throughout the exam: Don't spend too much time on one question, and don't speed through carelessly. Try not to spend more than one minute on each question. If you get stuck on a question, skip it and return to it later. Make sure you read each question carefully and answer accurately.
