The time required to prepare is strictly a personal decision. Our experience has shown that a person with a solid background will require an average of 3 months to prepare. As stated previously, the first thing you must do is determine your strengths and weaknesses. One of the easiest things to do and probably one of the worst mistakes made when preparing for the exam is to spend a lot of time studying topics that you are strongest in.

Let’s face it. Its the easy thing to do. However, it will not serve you well to spend most of your time doing this. Focus on the areas that you are weakest in.

Test-Taking Strategy

Understanding Question Construction and Item Focus

For you to improve your chances of passing the exam you develop a strategy for taking the exam. Therefore, it is helpful to understand a question construction. A four-choice objectively scored exam item contains an item stem and four possible answers. The premise or lead in statement or question is called the stem. One of the choices is correct and three are not. As mentioned, there are no penalties for incorrect answers, so for sometimes you may need to guess. If you do not know the answer you should guess intelligently. Look for choices that you know are incorrect. Choose your answer from among the remaining choices. This increases your chances of selecting the correct answer. Also, read the questions carefully. Consider the question from the viewpoint of an exam item writer. Look for the item focus. Each item evaluates some area of knowledge. Try to identify what knowledge the item is trying to test. Recognize the stem for some items may include information that is not needed for answering the question correctly. Next, consider the context of an item. Often the item is framed around a particular industry or situation. Even if you do not work in the industry or have no experienced a particular situation the item may be testing knowledge that you have. Avoid dismissing an item because of the context or industry it was framed in.

Choosing Your Answers Intelligently and Using Your Time Wisely During the Exam

Use your time wisely. When taking the exam complete those items first that you know you can answer quickly. Then go back to items that were difficult for you or required considerable time to read, analyze or compute. You may want to go back over skipped or marked items several times. Complete the skipped items. After you have gone through the examination once, look for items that you have not answered. Select an answer for any skipped or incomplete item. By chance alone you can get one of every four correct. Many times, a later item may contain the answer or at least a trigger that allows you to answer some previous questions.

Go back to troublesome items. Its a good idea to mark items that you are not sure about or are too difficult. After you worked through the entire exam, go back to marked items. Reread the items and study the choices again. You may recall some knowledge or information that you had not considered earlier and be able to answer them correctly. You may be able to eliminate a choice that is not correct and increase chance of guessing the answer.
