If you cannot figure out the PM, I answer to the tough flag questions.
01:47
Take your best guess.
01:49
If time is counting down,
01:51

And remember to answer all the questions Each question counts against you if you'll even unanswered

because there's no eating and drinking there.

05:49
I didn't write the former's down until I came to a question which required a formula. Many people I know memorized the foremost and wrote them down prior to entering any question
06:00
for them. It works, but for me, I see it is wasting my time.
06:02
P m I has made any formalist and more than will be on the exam. I found that the study time I put it specifically for the formulas came in handy when a formal question came up during the exam.
06:14
But that's me. You do what you still works best for you. If you want to write down all for most prior to starting the exam, go for it.
06:24
I understand the questions asked, because many questions were wordy and could be a bit confusing at first read.
06:31
Also, many questions are the negative vernacular.
06:36
All the answers before you answer any question and again understand the questions asked before entering.
06:44
Think about it. Is the question asking
06:46
and I get it vernacular or not?
06:49
Answer the easy questions first and flagged the tough ones for other rounds.

Stay aware of the time yet relax because you're ready to pass the exam.
07:00
Make multiple passes to continue answering The next easiest question are the ones you flagged?
07:06
Make sure you have
07:08
answered all the questions
07:11
because a guess may count. Correct.
07:15
But unanswered questions are always wrong and count against you.
