Personally I was marking around 15+ Q's per block. So many had me stuck between 2 similar choices. If it was a question I had absolutely no clue about I didn't mark it, just guessed and moved on. And if I was 100% sure I knew an answer I would read the q twice to make sure its not a trick or I didn't misread and then make my choice and move on. I ended up getting a 240 on my exam.
