If a question asks for more than one answer, select all correct options. There is no partial credit.
If a question takes too much time, mark the item for review and return to it at the end of the exam.
The exam is presented in blocks or sections. Within a block or section, you can move from question to question. You can change your answers, skip questions and come back to them as long as you are in the same section. Note that once you submit your answers for each block or section, you cannot return to that section or any previous block or section.
Read the entire question and consider all options before you answer. If the question includes an exhibit, study the exhibit and read the question again. Select the answer that fully responds to the question. If the question asks for more than one answer, select all correct answers. There is no partial credit.
