Help! IR is kicking my ass. [#permalink] New post 23 Nov 2013, 16:46
I'm not quite sure how I'm possibly supposed to complete the IR questions in the 30 minute slot.

In all of my MGMAT practice tests, I have time for maybe 8 in total. If I were given another 10-15 minutes, I would be able to answer almost all questions I've encountered. I just don't understand how presenting blocks of data and asking mundane questions about it under severe time limits is integrated reasoning.

But, what can you do? Such is the situation and complaining about it won't do much.

I have to ask, is there any possible way to speed up an IR section? Has anyone come up with certain strategies in getting more than half the questions right? Is skipping questions worth less marks a viable strategy? Any guidance will be appreciated.

Since the IR section is not adaptive (at least not yet), this is really about maximizing your 'raw' score. If you think you can get a question right -- I'd get it right. If you think you are unlikely to get a question right (or feel like you might get it wrong)... I'd consider moving on to the next one if time is a big issue.

Just my $0.02.
