Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
This exam has taken me for a toll i get so stressed out that I forget everything.I have taken the test and failed miserably but I just don't want to give up. Can someone tell me how to handle the time stress .Verbal section just drives me crazy.
There's very little gain with no pain....as far as the GMAT goes. There are exceptions to this of course. Some people are born test-takers. For the remaining "mere mortals", work is needed in each aspect of the test taking strategy....including timing, working through long hours at one sitting....etc. Though these are peripheral to the core material study, they are just as important in order to perform to your potential.
If you could highlight your prep strategy....people (I am sure) will chip in with do's and don'ts.....
If stress is causing major problems for you, then good preperation is probably the answer. If you go in knowing that you are prepared for each of the question types, you are less likely to be stressed by what you will face.
Dealing with stress is a major issue for an exam like this. If you are stressed your mind will wander and you cannot concentrate on even those problems that you are very capable of answering. I can also cause you to be tired and/or sleep poorly.
I would suggest taking some time and getting an honest assessment of your own skills. Then, set out a plan to tackle each of the areas in which you need to be stronger. If you can point out your preperation and test experience, others here can probably help with suggestions.
