After 7 CATs and targeted practice of 700 level DS problems, I found that my weakness is DS problems involving number lines, inequalities and number properties. On examining the test results I see that some of these took 2:30 minutes. On some, I even clocked close to 3:00 minutes. I need a strategy to handle these problems. What is the maximum time I can spend on them without jeopardizing the entire section? My plan it to try to solve them under x minutes and if I can't, then guess and move on. However, I'm not sure what that x should be? Put another way, what is the maximum time I should spend on the hard DS problems?

Taking 3 min for data sufficiency is no big deal. I usually do the easier PS qtns in a minute or less, then use some of the accumulated time to burn on tricky DS qtns, especially inequalities. As long as you're still on schedule with the clock for the qtn number you're at, u're usually ok. My rule is if after 3min or 3:30 on a DS even if I'm ahead on the clock, I'll just take an educated guess and move on. Remember, if you spend 5minutes on a question, that means you have to do 3 qtns at 1min to end up back in the black, and towards the end, if the test is reasonably confident that you're at 700+ level, the qtns may not be that easy.
