  • There are 100 questions which must be answered in 90 minutes. The passing score is 750 on a scale of 100-900.

  • Read each question and its option answers carefully. Don't rush through the exam as you'll probably have more time at the end than you expect.
  • At the other end of the scale, don't get "stuck" on a question and start to panic. You can mark questions for review and come back to them.
  • As the exam tests your ability to recall facts and to apply them sensibly in a practical scenario, there will be questions where you cannot recall the correct answer from memory. Adopt the following strategy for dealing with these questions:
    • Narrow your choices down by eliminating obviously wrong answers.
    • Don't guess too soon! You must select not only a correct answer, but the best answer. It is therefore important that you read all of the options and not stop when you find an option that is correct. It may be impractical compared to another answer.
    • Utilize information and insights that you've acquired in working through the entire test to go back and answer earlier items that you weren't sure of.
    • Think your answer is wrong - should change it? Studies indicate that when students change their answers they usually change them to the wrong answer. If you were fairly certain you were correct the first time, leave the answer as it is.
    • Don't leave any questions unanswered! If you really don't know the answer, just guess.
    • The exam may contain "unscored" questions, which may even be outside the exam objectives. These questions do not count towards your score.
Best of luck for those who are ready to give the exam, i have just started studing.
