It has likely been awhile since you have taken an important multiple choice exam, such as the MBLEx.
All 100 questions on the MBLEx are multiple choice, with four possible answers. Working on multiple choice test taking strategies in addition to your regular MBLEx study plan will help increase your chances of passing the exam.
The steps for multiple choice strategy are fairly simple.
First, read the question carefully.
Then, reread it. This time, pay special attention to superlatives (the suffix -est and most), absolutes or negatives (all, more, always, only, none, not, and never).
Third, try to think of the correct answer before looking at the four options.
Read all the options. Then read them again and watch for absolutes, negatives, or superlatives.
If you find the answer, select it and move on.
If you don’t know the answer, or find two possible answers, don’t panic. This is where you will begin eliminating options and increasing your odds of choosing the correct answer.
