GMAT Quantitative Strategy (Need Advice) [#permalink] New post 17 Apr 2011, 14:16
I am having a very consistent experience and I haven't found any particular strategy on how to cope with the issue.

The scenario is as follows:

I take a 37 question timed practice exam.
a. I manage to pace myself to complete the exam on time.
b. I've been scoring 42 so far consistently (GMATPrep and Other Resources)

What I have been noticing is that when I review my errors I am able to find the right answer all by myself under the same 2 minute time limit. Which means, somewhere deep down inside my brain knows how to get the right answer. I have not found a single question where I was lacking some sort of fundamental knowledge to get the answer right. I think this is symptom of "working under pressure", but I can't figure out how to deal with it. To be honest I don't really feel any sort of stress when I am taking the exam, so I find it weird. Any advice would be helpful.

P.S. Moderators I wasn't entirely sure where this would be appropriate. If there is a GMAT strategy section please move it there.
