How to Boost Your PANCE or PANRE Score by 100 Points

This article is going to show two very easy ways to help increase your PANCE or PANRE score by 100 points. I’ve written about this topic before but there is new information that I want to share. While there is no magic pill or wand to achieve this, these two techniques are the most useful and not difficult to implement and only require a little of your time. This means anyone can take advantage of them. The first tactic is to use a system over a couple of months to identify what you don;t know. Sounds easy, right? The key is going to be to go through a curriculum and identify what you don’t know – not what you are weak at – but what you don’t know. The second strategy is to take advantage of human error.

This article will show you 5 very easy techniques to narrow down an answer choice to either the correct answer or to a 50/50 probability – even without knowing anything about the topic. By combining these two strategies, you’ll be able to increase your PANCE or PANRE score by 10 points – which could be the difference between passing or failing. Let’s get started.
