For EVER I've read the advice that when taking multiple-choice exams (such as all of the PMI exams), your first choice is most often the correct answer. This has always bugged my 'over - thinking' habit.
Is this really true? Has anyone ever seen a study that examined this and shows that the majority of people's first choice of an answer in a multiple choice answer format is correct?
Personally, I pick one I like, then re-read the question to see if it fits, and if it doesn't I change YES CHANGE it breaking the "first choice rule.
Is there any validity to "your first choice is always best" on exams?
