guessing

Postby northwood » Tue May 18, 2010 1:39 am

Is picking one letter to use for your guessing response ( ex. a for all questions that you dont know the response to, or dont get to due to timing issues) a better option than randomly assigning letters- it seems that in the practice tests ive done, the answer choice flow in a pattern format). If so, which letter should I choose?

Better to stick to one letter. You should choose the letter you have least frequently answered in the rest of the section, especially if you notice a significant difference. Fortunately, the shape of the answer sheet makes this easy to notice visually.
