    I want to get an idea of test taking strategy from those of you did well on the exam. Doing U-World I read the last line of the questions first, then read the rest of the question, then pick an answer. For U-World I'm in the medium-fast group, and review my marked questions, then review the rest to make sure I am totally satisfied with my answers.

    What is everyone else's strategy?

    I had many marked and little time left. I tend to be a slow test taker though.

    Never marked any and finished with >15 minutes left over. Figured I either knew it or I didn't and moved on.
