The various officer candidate tests rely heavily on multiple-choice questions to test potential officers. In addition to just knowing the material, these tips can help as you face multiple-choice questions:

  • Carefully read the question and all answer choices.

  • Try to come up with your own answer before considering choices.

  • After identifying the correct answer choice, rule out the wrong answer choices to be sure.

  • Don’t spend too much time on one question.

  • If you don’t know the answer, try to eliminate as many obviously wrong answer choices, and then guess.
