At a certain point, I began to realize that most of their tricks must always be from the same pool of thoughts.

In the end, the test is standardized after all. So nowadays I realize that you need to familiarize yourself with the patterns and some the key words that are of great importance to the test.

A often-broken, but generally applicable rule of thumb:
Questions 1-15: If an answer seems really obvious, it's probably right
Questions 16-End: If an answer seems really obvious, it's time to double-check it

Really broad rules, but they hold up on average.
