True/False Test Taking Tips

1.  Choose "true" only when you are certain the entire statement is true.

2.  Be careful when statements contain a negative word or prefix.

3.  When the statement contains 2 negatives or prefixes, cross both out.  This helps clear up the statement.

4.  An absolute (all, none, always, every, never, only, no) statement is usually false.

5.  A qualified (some, many, usually, most, sometimes, may, often) statement is usually true.

6.  If uncertain, guess (unless there is a penalty for guessing).  Best guess is to guess "true."
