Improve Your Mulitple Choice Test Scores with Sudoku

Can you improve your multiple choice test results with sudoku?

Can you improve your multiple choice test results with sudoku?


Actually, yes. The biggest challenge most students face with the multiple choice format is the logic skills required. Multiple choice tests are fundamentally about the process of elimination – your goal is just as much to discard the wrong answers as it is to find the right ones.

Sudoku, if you pay attention, is a similar process. It’s a logic puzzle, which in it’s simplest form is a 9×9 grid in which each row, column and 3×3 sub-grid contains all of the numbers from 1-9, but only once in each. In order to complete the puzzle, you need to use a simple set of logic skills similar to that used in finding the correct answer for multiple choice questions.

Using Sudoku for Your Next Multiple Choice Test

There are two ways you can use these puzzle for multiple choice tests. The first is to use it during your test prep. Try doing a few puzzles before tackling a practice test, and see if you notice a difference. The second is to do a few puzzles immediately before an exam to get the right logic parts of your brain fired up. In my opinion, that not only helps you get through an exam faster, it also reduces multiple choice test anxiety.

Give it a shot – after all, how often do you get test prep advice that tells you to procrastinate by playing games online? :)
