What is the best strategy? Is it best to eliminate choices on your dry erase board and then re-draw the choices for every question? This was suggested in my prep class.

A book I read recommends drawing a grid during the un-timed sections at the beginning of the exam (when they ask for school information...etc).
You can then write 'X' in the grid during POE process.

Personally, I did not find doing POE on the board effective, especially during the exam when time is tight. To me, crossing out wrong answers in my head works better. Your mileage may vary though. The best is to find out by doing computer practice tests and see what work for you.

Thanks, I feel the same way (time is of the essence). I'm just a little skeptical about the whole dry erase board thing, I think I will try to buy one.

I read somewhere that if you like POE but do not want to do the grid system, you can actually use your fingers to keep a track.

For instance, have all fingers up. As and when answers keep getting eliminated, put that finger down.

Not sure how well it'd work for you, but many people reported success with this method.
