Hi:

Can we take a break for more than 5 minutes between the quant and the verbal section. From I have seen in my practice tests (including PP) is that once one is done with one section, the test automatically rolls into the next section after 5 minutes.

No, you cant. There are two five minute breaks one after the AWA section and second after the quant. I would suggest using them completely. Take a small walk, relax or eat something.

Strangely enough, on both breaks I walked out of the test area and used the bathroom and ate a bit of a candy bar. When I returned, the break had expired on the computer, but the section had not started. I'm not sure how long this "grace period" exists, but to me it seemed that even though the break expired, you still had to click to continue, and thus technically had more than 5 minutes. I noticed that when I started each section, I had the full 75 minutes, so the computer didn't seem to deduct any time due to my extending my break. I'm not sure I'd rely on this though. This is just my experience.

same happened to me. For both breaks I went to the bathroom, ate KitKat bar, and took a little walk. The break expired, but the section did not start.

that happened to me too! I think eating during the break will help me as I was so tired after the Math part.

Kit Kat, eh, Minghoo?

I'd prefer a Snickers. Those peanuts really satisfy!!!
