hi,my question is related to educated guessing on the Gmat.
1)how does one make an educated guess on PS sums.We can atleast eliminate some choices in ds,rc,cr,sc but what about PS.
2)A very typical question,do the first few questions in each section count more than others,So should I spend more time on the initial questions.
3)similarly,do you guys make educated guesses in particular question bands asin 15-30 etc.
4)Does RC have higher weightage over CR and SC(I read a post by talk2vij where he insists so)

Sorry for posting so many questions at once,it is just that iam planning to take a few tests this week and wanna have a clear head before taking them
Thank a lot
