i usually read the last part of the question, and look at what the question is really asking for, because sometimes in long questions usually gives out the diagnosis and just require treatment or next best step.

but if this is not the case, it still is a good strategy since it could avoid you from rereading the entire question again...

any other suggestions would be very helpful
