Test-taking tips

This is a multiple choice test. The order of the questions does not necessarily proceed from easy to difficult. The more difficult questions may appear at the beginning of a test. Do not panic when you get a passage or sentence that appears difficult at first.

Try this strategy: Look for the vocabulary words that you recognize and read the question carefully to see what you are supposed to be looking for. You don’t always have to know all the words to eliminate possibilities.

Question instructions appear below the question box.

Importance of viewing the entire test page: You need to see the bottom of the window to be able to select your answer (a, b, c, or d).
