Dear Farukmal,

There are two key things that you should consider:

1. Why do you need 5 minutes to solve a question that should be solved in 3 minutes or less. Do you lack some core skills or are you not solving the problem in an optimal manner.
2. Are you running behind time/on time/ahead of time. If you are running ahead of time, then you may spend the extra time , otherwise if you think that you are going to take longer (and you are already behind) then go ahead and skip.

I address questions such as above in my free session tomorrow on tactical strategies. Click on the link below (or register at e-GMAT if you want to receive a reminder).

Hi farukqmul,

At first glance, a lot of these questions can look really tough. But if you get a better sense of how these questions operate, they won't look so intimidating. We recommend looking at some practice IR questions here and getting familiar with the question types: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... -reasoning

Then, if you need further help, get some extra help and see how someone else approaches the same question you were struggling with.
