There are a few tips and tricks.
1) Never read the entire passage(s) to find the answers. You should go to the questions first, answer one by one. Look for a clue in the question such as years, names of people or terms. Then go to the passage and scan where you can find the answer. Usually, the answers will follow.

Of course, there are many more specific tips related to different passages. The trainers are better equipped to guide the students depending upon their personality and their language level.
