2) Read before and after the blank to help you identify the correct word

The choices in the drop-down menus may look quite similar but will have different meanings and usage. Looking at the surrounding context will help you choose the appropriate word.

3) Do not skip text

Do not skip a paragraph of text even if it does not contain blanks. It sometimes contains key information that could be the determining factor in picking the correct answer in the blank in next paragraph.
