Read the questions first, then the answer, and then the scenario. 5. Rule out the wrong or incorrect answers (only for paper exams). 6. Use highlighter if necessary (only for paper exams). 7. Be careful when you transpose that you don't miss questions (only for paper exams) https://vimeo.com/393720723
