  1. Remember to understand the conceipts, when taking the test
    if you don't understand something pick the best answer
    mark it and when you have time at the end go back root
    out the wrong or last choices.
    this helped me. I did pass all my tests and used this

    The technique...

    1. Ensure that you have Time Per Question (TPQ) allotment
    calculated. (See strategy #7 for more info)

    2. Remove the Question Noise (See strategy #6 for more

    3. Remember that Interactive Questions count for as much
    60% of your score - if the 'trouble' question is an
    type question, don't shrug it off and move on - it
    cost you the exam. (See strategy #5 for more info)

    4. Remember 'Experience is not enough', certification
    questions are more often than not, written by writers,
    not in the trenches, on the front line IT people -
    life situations are not necessarily what you are being
    tested on. (See strategy #4 for more info)

    5. Remember the 'Information Overload' technique and
    how to handle Distractors (Information Overload).
    (See strategy #3 for more info)

    6. Be wary of 'Information Warfare' or Dis-information -
    information from several sources that contradict each
    other - this must be resolved before attempting the

    With each one of these 6 strategies in mind and knowing
    amount of time you have to handle the question (TPQ),
    remove the noise - breaking the question down into the
    smallest parts and revealing the keywords or phases.
    Then, discard the 'Distractors' (Information Overload)

    * Phase 2...
    With the question noise and distractors now gone,
    the answer choices that are 'way out there' (usually 1/2
    of them
    have absolutely no relevancy to the question)

    * Phase 3...
    With only a few choices now remaining, again scan your
    / phrases (from strategy #7) and ask yourself 'from the
    writers perspective' what is he/she really testing me on?

    So often the long winded question, with its distractors
    question noise is really - when it comes down to it -
    asking a
    very straight forward question. Understanding what
    the 'writers'
    are attempting to test you on will often reveal the
