CUNY/Compass Reading Examination Strategies - Except/Not

EXCEPT/NOT Questions
The except or not questions ask you to select the choice in the passage that is not true. These types of questions are challenging and problematic because they require you to read the passage very carefully and numerous times to determine the correct answer.

To select the correct answer do the following:

  1. Read the choices very carefully.


  2. Refer the passage to locate support for each choice.


  3. Eliminate all the choices that have support.
