Exam Technique for EASA Part 66 multi-choice questions

Your chances of passing the CAA-approved exams can be greatly enhanced by the use of
“exam technique”. The following points should help you to improve your performance:

1. Read the questions carefully. Don't rush and make sure that you've understood the
question before you select one of the answers. This should go without saying but it
still catches people out!

2. Think it through. Not all questions are straightforward and some are downright
confusing! If you can't understand the question try to get inside the examiner's head
and ask yourself what the question is really about and what knowledge the question
is actually trying to test.

3. Have you used all the information given in the question? You might just have
overlooked a vital piece of information. Once again, this comes down to checking
that you have read the question carefully before attempting to arrive at an answer.

4. A few questions don't actually give you all the information that you need. There
might be something missing from the question that you might have to assume?
Questions of this type are not good practice but they DO exist. If you think that
something is missing from the question you might need to decide on what could be
reasonably assumed (for example, that temperature does not change or that the
supply voltage remains constant).

5. Don't make up your mind too quickly. If one of the answers looks obviously correct
take another look – the examiner will often provide you with an answer that might
look more inviting than the others but is actually incorrect.

6. Never guess an answer. Always try to reason out the correct answer. If this doesn't
work, try to eliminate one of the answers so it becomes a choice of two rather than
three potential answers. In many cases you should be able to select one answer
that is patently wrong.

7. A few questions may have more than one correct answer - it's just that one of the
answers is “more correct” than the others! If you think that more than one answer
could be right you need to ask yourself which of the answers is the one that the
examiner wants to see. For example, does one of the answers convey more
meaningful information than the other (potentially correct) answer(s)? If so, this is
the one to go for! (Once again this is rather bad practice and the examiner should
ideally provide one answer that is uniquely correct and two others that are patently

8. Don't give up! However hard you find the questions remember that people do pass
these exams and only one or two questions correctly answered can make all the
difference between a pass and a fail.

Good luck with your exams!
