    you can without losing accuracy. Do not spend
    too much time on any one question. Go on to
    other questions and come back to the ones you

    all of the multiple-choice questions.

    followed by five suggested answers or
    completions. Select the one that is best in each
    case and then fill in the corresponding oval on
    the answer sheet.

  • 1 point off if the question is left blank

31
General Tips for Test Taking
  • About Guessing
  • Many students wonder whether or not to guess the
    answers to questions about which they are not
    certain. In this section of the exam, as a
    correction for random guessing, one-fourth of the
    number of questions you answer incorrectly will
    be subtracted from the number of questions you
    answer correctly. If you are not sure of the
    best answer but have some knowledge of the
    question and are able to eliminate one or more of
    the answer choices, your chance of answering
    correctly improved, and it may be to your
    advantage to answer such a question.

General Tips for Test Taking
  • Dont waste time with extremely difficult
    questions
  • Don't waste time pondering difficult-to-answer
    questions excessively. If you have no idea at
    all, just guess (if there is no penalty for doing
    so) and go on. If you need to devote a good deal
    of time to the question, skip it and mark it so
    you can return to it later if time permits.

43
General Tips for Test Taking
  • Are charts, graphs, drawings, etc.
    on the test?
  • Are there names on the test?

44
General Tips for Test Taking
  • Keep to the level of the test
  • Adopt the appropriate level of sophistication for
    the test. Don't read things into questions.
    Sometimes students make things more complex that
    they were intended to be. Often, simple-looking
    questions are just what they appear to be.
  • AP Psychology test goes from
    easiest questions to hardest
    questions.

45
General Tips for Test Taking
  • Ask questions if you can
  • Unless it is explicitly forbidden, don't hesitate
    to ask the examiner to clarify a question when
    necessary. Many examiners will graciously
    provide a great deal of useful information.
  • AP Psychology test
    cannot ask any
    questions.

46
General Tips for Test Taking
  • If possible, review your answers
  • If you complete all of the questions and still
    have some time remaining, review the test. Make
    sure that you have recorded your answers
    correctly, especially when using a scanner sheet.
    If you were unsure of some answers, go back and
    reconsider them.
