Exam Strategy

Let’s start a thread on exam strategy for level I. Will you do the problems in order? All Ethics first or all easy, non-time consuming questions before the harder questions? Also, do you plan to write down a bunch of equations immediately after the exam starts?


I wouldn’t do the problems in order.

I’d go to the topic areas I know best and do all of the easy (sub-90-second) problems there, then move onto the topic areas I know less well. At the end, I’d try the more difficult (longer than 90-second) problems, and those in my weakest areas. With about 10 minutes to go, I’d make sure that I’ve filled in an answer on each question: leave no blanks.

Get the points that God intended you to get, and don’t worry about the rest.
