how do i increase my speed and still maintain accuracy in Q? [#permalink] New post 24 Sep 2011, 01:26
Hi !

I seem to have a problem performing under timed environment, especially in quant. My accuracy falls by almost 25%.....
also the average time to answer an average question correctly is about 4 minutes....at which rate i'll never complete quant section.....(i took GMATPrep1 quant section twice and both times i ran out of time....1st time at qs n0. 24, 2nd time at qs 23).........what should i do to increase my speed????

I know i probably shudnt be worrying about speed at this point of time as I have just statred preparing for Gmat 12 days back...but would i able to bridge the gap of 13 to 14 questions? EVER?

You are still at the early stage of your preparation, so speed should not be a major concern for you right now. The main problem is probably familiarity with the concepts. Solid guidebooks correct this problem. And that's what you should focus on at this time: study guides and some OG to reinforce the concepts.

One good idea is to consider any problem that takes more than two minutes incorrect during question practice sessions. This allows you to revisit those questions later.
