Best on Tests Tip #8:

On a true-false test unless you've been told not to, guess at answers that you aren't sure of. If you are penalized for wrong answers, don't guess. Since you have only two possibilities in a true-false test, you have a 50-50 chance of being right, so guessing here is safer than in other forms of tests.
