Craig Schock, 2004 Tips and Strategies Read the exam fully. I have proofread the exam but there is always the possibility of a mistake. eg. Pages out of order, miss-numbered questions, etc. If in doubt, ask. Read the question FULLY! Double check your bubble sheet to ensure that it contains your real answers. Bring more than one pencil, a sharpener, and an eraser!
