"The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed - it is a process of elimination."

Remember the above quote when taking the MBE next week. There are no tips or tricks that are going to make this test easy but in my view it is easier to spot errors in the distractors than it is to spot the one perfect answer in any given question. Every wrong answer must be wrong for a very specific reason.

In fact, if you're looking for the perfect answer you may never find it; oftentimes the correct answer on the MBE is correct only because it is better than all of the others.

And so work your way to the correct answer by eliminating all the answers that are worse than the last one remaining.  This alone will increase your score!  Confirm that you believe it to be correct, but even if you aren't certain, be confident in that answer since it remains after the rest have been eliminated.
