I am going through word problem types of questions because I think i bombed this type of q in my last gmat both time-wise and accuracy wise. And what i see from OG about 30% of all questions comprise the word problem type.

During these 2 days I solved numerous word problems and here are my observations:

- very time consuming because the intuitive approach is to apply algebra and form equations, on average easy question take almost the same time as hard ones
- given my incline to make silly mistakes in algebraic calculations I should rely more on reasoning out the easy questions
- majority of easy word problems employ weighted average or mean concepts which can be done by reasoning much faster than by doing algebra - ultimately this will save at least 30 secs on each such question
