Here are some general tips for taking your exam successfully:
Bring two forms of ID with you. One must be a photo ID, such as a driver's license. The other can be a major credit card or a passport. Both forms must have a signature.
■ Arrive early at the exam center so you can relax and review your study materials, particularly tables and lists of exam-related information.
■ Read the questions carefully. Don't be tempted to jump to an early conclusion.
Make sure you know exactly what the question is asking.
■ Don't leave any unanswered questions. Unanswered questions are scored against you.
■ There will be questions with multiple correct responses. When there is more than one correct answer, a message at the bottom of the screen will prompt you to "Choose all that apply." Be sure to read the messages displayed.
■ When answering multiple-choice questions you're not sure about, use a process of elimination to get rid of the obviously incorrect questions first. This will improve your odds if you need to make an educated guess.
■ For the latest pricing on the exam and updates to the registration procedures, refer to the CompTIA site at www.comptia.com.
