Course Description

This course is carefully designed for students who occasionally turn up to exams under prepared. Using my many years of experience in writing exams, I have put together a structured system of "guessing" multiple choice questions (MCQs). Many questions in exams provide you with hints as to which is the correct answer.

I walk you through 11 types of hints that MCQs often provide to the student, an ultimate system of guessing a MCQ even when you have absolutely no clue about the material, and a killer exam strategy to maximise your marks even if you run out of time.

This is a MUST HAVE COURSE for any student about to undertake an exam in high school, college or university.

Welcome to my course, and let's see what's installed! :)

No idea what an Option is talking about? Perfect! This is a hint by your Instructor! Let's see how we can de-code this message...


Use the Instructor's choice of options to your benefit! How using simple logic can eliminate 2 or more incorrect answers and vastly increase your chances of choosing the correct one! It's so simple yet easily missed by students!


Your Instructor will subconsciously try to hide the correct answer. Given this, we can sniff it out using some basic tactics!


Your Instructor is telling you where the correct answer is. You just have to know how to listen! Shhhhh.....let's listen....


The Instructor is giving you a big nudge towards the correct answer, you just have to watch out for it! Too many students miss this hint!


Use your Instructor's trickiness against them! They will try very hard to throw you off the correct answer, and will accidentally leave clues for you to pick up!


Again, your Instructor is subconsciously telling you where the correct answer is! Use this killer technique to more than double your chances of getting the question right!


Your trusty wingman when everything else fails!


An unintentional hint by your Instructor. This clue is a clear signal towards the correct answer. Master this and you will still choose the right answer even when you're out of time and panicking!

Instructor Biography

Dr David Tan, University Lecturer & Youtube Statistics Teacher

Hi everyone! My name is David, and I'm a Udemy instructor for Statistics and Econometrics. I hold a PhD in Finance from the University of New South Wales, Australia, and am currently a Lecturer in Aviation Finance. I absolutely love teaching! I like to break down complex concepts into little bite-sized pieces using simple and often silly stories for my students. The look on their faces from clueless to "ah ha!" is priceless, and means a lot to me.

In particular, I love teaching Statistics and I currently have a Youtube channel ("Quant Concepts") devoted to teaching statistics to newbies and those struggling with the subject. My channel has over 320,000 views and 1,600 subscribers, and is growing rapidly! I also run a Facebook page "freestatshelp" where I assist students with statistics from around the world for free. Come and check it out!

Yup, I'm a nerd.

Apart from teaching, I'm also an active researcher at the university and research in all sorts of stuff. I'm particularly passionate about my following research projects:

* Using microeconomics to improve the way funds are raised for charitable causes,

* Using agent-based modelling to observe how information goes viral on social media, and

* How exposure to technology and the Internet affects children's ability to concentrate.

Once a year, I go to a village in Phang Nga, Thailand, to volunteer and teach English at a disadvantaged (poorly funded) primary school for Burmese students. I would have to say one of the best times of my life is when I was staying in a small village in Thailand (Thai Mueang), teaching English to the Burmese kids, riding my scooter, working out of ym lap top, and just living a simple life.

Beauty lies in simplicity.
