Well, if your exam is today, I doubt there is any *magic* advice
anyone can give you.
I would say:
Read the questions properly - sometimes you can take more than one
meaning from the question (some would argue that some questions can be
ambigious at best, innacurate at worst). Re-reading the question
properly can help you find the most likely answer.
You can mark questions that you are not sure of. Make sure you use
this functionality and the button that takes you back to the marked
questions. One of my colleagues wasn't aware of this and wasted a lot
of time navigating through the entire question list to go back to the
ones he was unsure about - a real waste of time that cost him.
If you had more time, I would highly recommend this contribution from
You can always read it after you get your cert ;) it gives some great
insights into SAS processing.
Also check out papers from Paul Dorfman on the subject (I've lost my links).
Finally, best of luck.
