Get as many questions correct as possible with as few errors as possible. This strategy may seem obvious, if the Mathematics test scoring deducts point for each incorrect multiple-choice answer, it is very important to remember. You will generally achieve “maximum right, minimum wrong” by doing all the questions that are easy for you, attempting the harder questions that you think you know how to do, and skipping the rest.
The harder questions may require several steps to solve and will often have incorrect answer choices (also known as “traps”) that come from making simple mistakes.

On multiple-choice questions, if you are stuck, take advantage of the fact that the answer is printed right there as one of the choices. The correct answer is the one that works!

### Plug in real numbers

In other words, “dummy it down” by using convenient numbers in place of letters (variables) to make a problem more concrete. This very powerful strategy can be used on multiple choice questions as well as the grid-in questions.

### No wild guessing

You should guess on a multiple-choice question only if you have worked on it and can eliminate one or more answers. Otherwise, skip the problem and move on to a question you can do.

### Connect what is being given to what is being asked

Think about what concept the question is using, what information it is giving you, and what it is asking for. Read the question two or three times.
• Geometry questions: Draw a figure! A figure can be very useful when one isn't provided. Fill in or label the figure with all the information that the question gives.
• When a geometry problem contains algebraic terms, try to make an equation from the figure and solve the equation. Or, plug in real numbers to make the figure work.
• Figures are accurate (to scale) unless otherwise noted . If two lines look like they are the same length, then they are the same length!
• If a figure is not drawn to scale, it is drawn in such as way as to mislead you. In this case, only go by the given information. It may help to redraw the figure.
• Mark the questions that you skip in your test booklet so that you can come back to them easily.
• Circle the multiple-choice answers that you choose in the test booklet so that you can check the answer grid against your booklet later on, if you have time.
• Grid-ins: if you have a hunch, then go ahead and guess! There is no penalty for guessing in the grid-in section. It is usually best to start the answer in the far-left column of the grid. Write in the numbers but don't forget to grid them! As with the multiple-choice, circle the answer you come up with in your test booklet so that you can check it against your grid later on.
