Are the suggestions from this article still applicable to the 12c exams? I didn't know if the exam format had changed from 11g.

Tip #8 -- Don't skip questions
If you get to a question and you have no idea about the answer, pick one at random, mark the question and move on. You can't afford to waste time agonizing over it. Unanswered questions are always wrong. Answering it at least gives you a chance of getting it correct.

Tip #9 -- If you have the slightest doubt, mark the question!
Mark every question that you aren't *positive* that you got right. Be conservative. If there is any uncertainty, mark it. When you get to the end of the test, a screen will open with all of the marked questions. Compare the count of marked questions to the number you calculated that could be missed in step 1. If you have marked well below the calculated number, you probably passed the test.

Thanks,

Chuck

100% applicable. Don't waste time on hard questions, just mark them and go on to the next.

So you are given the ability to review marked questions to reformulate an answer? If so, then it makes total sense to scan the test for low hanging fruit and then return for a second swing at the marked questions.

...keeping in mind that you might not have time to go back and check all of the marked questions. That's why I advocate that you choose an answer then mark and move on.
