Tips For True/False & Matching Tests

 

Tips for taking true/false:

Carefully read all qualifying words such as all, most, some, never, always, usually, more, and less. Be especially cautious of absolutes like all, best, only, always, and never.

Tips for taking matching tests:

  • Preview both lists to get an idea of all the options.
  • As you start to match items, look at one list and formulate an answer before you search the other list.
  • Guess only when you are running out of time. If you guess incorrectly early, correct answers for later matches will be eliminated.
  • As soon as you get your test, write down any information you might forget during the test (e.g. formulas, equations, key points).
  • Mark questions you are not sure of and come back to them later.
  • Guess instead of leaving a question blank, unless you are penalized for wrong answers; you have a better chance of getting points.

Tips for taking all types of tests:
