Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #3:  Don’t Change Your Answer

Read all the choices before deciding on the correct answer.  Often there is a wrong answer that appears right or is 99% right but 1% wrong that is put in there to fool you.  Students that are impulsive and do not read all the choices, tend to go for these wrong answers.

Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #1:  Multiple Choice Questions – Elimination Method

If the answer does not stand out, try the elimination method.  On a separate sheet of paper write down the letters, A B C D E to coincide with the letters of the multiple choice question.  Then read over the potential answers.  On your paper, cross out the letters of the answers that do not make any sense.  At this point you will have eliminated all accept for the correct answer or have two choices remaining.  Choosing one of the remaining two will give you 50/50 odds in getting the answer correct.

SAT vs. ACT

SAT or ACT?  Which is better? 

 

SAT – no science

ACT – includes science

SAT – essay writing mandatory

ACT – no essay writing (optional)

SAT – points taken off

ACT – guessing is ok as points are not taken off

 

There you have it.  We recommend your student choose the test that plays more towards their strengths.  If you want to avoid science, go with the SAT.  If you want to avoid essay writing, go with the ACT.  If you want the ability to guess and not have points taken off, the ACT is for you.  Let us know which one you like better.
