Be cautious with questions that look vaguely familiar. Don't let your guard down. You might think: I'm sure that was somewhere in the text book exercises. Look before you leap—it might have a similar sentence structure, but little more. The exam tester may have made very subtle changes that create a different question altogether. The MCQ that you recall began with: Seller Jones is a buyer customer who is anxious to purchase a home, but needs to arrange a new first mortgage. The question on the exam begins: Seller Jones is a buyer client who is anxious to purchase a home, but wants to negotiate a seller take back mortgage. A few word changes and it's a whole new ball game. Read every word carefully and don't prematurely jump to conclusions.
