difficult to force you to look up words.

#### Slide 15 -Tekstslide

Top 3 tips:
1. Read everything, but use as little of your own knowledge as
possible (base your answer on what's in the text!)
2. Underline, Highlight,  cross out,  etc. to indicate what to
look for or to find specific information
3. Approach multiple choice questions as if they are open
questions. Come up with your own answer first and then
choose the one that best fits it.
