Best Timing Strategy?? [#permalink]

Wanted to ask the timing strategy that you guys use while giving the test.
Means (Ques/Time remaining).
and how much are you guys able to stick onto it.
I am finding that most of my scores are low because of bad timing strategy..I end up rushing on the last 10 ques in both sections which is hitting my accuracy..
Any suggestions are more than welcome...
I have the same problem as you. The last time I took GmatPrep I made 16 mistakes in verbal, 8 between the 1st and the 31th question and 8 between the 32th and the 41th question, because I didn't have enough time at the end of the test. When I rush I don't have enough time to resolve verbal questions, lowering my scores a lot. I think I have to improve a lot my reading skills. I am not a native English speaker, so I spend a lot of time on RC and CR.
Thanks CWithK for sharing your strategy.
One more ques here is that should we make slots of 15 ques or should we track our timing on much lower blocks (like 7 ques blocks).That way we can ensure that we are in check.But then that also means , we put that additional pressure on ourselves and missing one block might lead to frustration.What do you feel.
