Alternative Question types

  1. I will be taking my boards in a few weeks. Any personal suggestion on how to do these SATA or place in order questions. I have been practicing a few, but still having a hard time with getting them right.

    I believe sharing about it is a violation of law.. I suggest just do more practice on that area. If you have saunders CD you can pratice SATA alone. TIPS.. watch for the word AVOID.. normally its a positive response..though not totally all.. just in case you dont have a choice.. select it. God bless on your exam..

    just treat each choice like a true of false.

    What Pinoy said. There isn't a trick other than knowing the content....Just review, review, review.
    You know your weak areas, review that twice.
    You will do great! Just breathe!

    With the SATA, look at each option individually and answer them with a true/false response. Go with your first instinct and don't get hung up on how many options you have chosen.

    For the put in order, read the question and then imagine yourself actually performing the task. On your white board, write down the steps that you would take, in order. Then look at the options and compare with how you imagined yourself performing the task.
