AuthorTopic: Number of questions you truly know?
@2016-05-28 03:59:01
I am taking the practice exam and was curious how many questions on average you actually know. Out of 10 questions, how many do you guys actually know and how many do you guys guess/narrow down to. Out of 10 questions, I feel like I know about 5 questions, can narrow it down to 2 answers on 2-3 questions, and completely guess on 2-3. Is this roughly what you guys are doing? Obviously it depends on the topic, but I am curious in general.

I've got to the point where its about this ratio:

Know - 60%
Narrow down / educated guess - 30%
Complete guess - 10%

Assuming your ratio is 5/3/2 you are in a good shape:

50% Known - with errors and silly mistakes, you should get 48% from this
30% Narrow down - you should get AT LEAST 15% from this
20% Complete guess - you should get AT LEAST 7% from this

The above is a conservative estimate, getting you to 70%.

I was very pleased with your notes and question bank. I especially like the mock exams because it helped to pull everything together.
