General Testing tips

More general testing tips, nuggets
  • Go Back and Correct
      • Once you finish, go back and write down ones you missed/read explanations
      • Lots of repeats so be familiar with questions
      • Always a good idea to RETAKE tests

4. DON’T OVERTHINK

      • Clements Kids.
      • Don’t psych yourself out
      • Context clues/logic
example numero uno
Example numerouno

Going through the steps:

Analyze – “potential ethical issue”, “distribution channel”

Strike – we can strike out B and D since they do not include ethical conflicts. C may be an answer choice except (and as you learn more of business vocab this will be easier) there isn’t a conflict among distribution channels. Only likely choice is A and that’s probably the one that stood out to you first

Reflect – yes this makes sense, ethical conflict apparent

example numero dos
EXAMPLE NUMERO DOS
  • Analyze - “businesses affected”, “social factors”
  • Strike – A and D don’t make sense in context. C takes into account social factors but B sounds the most reasonable. A business is dependent upon supply and demand and demand can be altered by social factors making B the BEST answer choice.
  • Reflect – yes makes sense, without demand for product a business can collapse or increased demand positively affects business
additional tips and tidbits
Additional tips and tidbits
  • Make sure to answer all your questions, ¼ chance of getting it right
  • Skip over ones you don’t know and come back to them
  • Pace yourself. You’re given ample time
