Hello!

What is the best strategy to manage time? How many questions can be left with no harm to the score? (Please, specify for Q and V)

Thanks in advance :-D

-Try to be a bit cautious with the first 10-15 questions...remember, only a bit cautious, not paranoid :)

-After that, you can increase your speed. of course, be alert at all times.

-Dont guess too much...if you can think of nothing,reduce it to two choices and take a good guess.


For verbal, apart from the above, in our prep, try to solve SC's in 60 seconds and try to implement this the exam. this will help you save time for CR and RC.

For CR and RC, there is a lot of advice on this forum and the share your gmat experience forum. Please go through those

Thanks,

But I guess anyway it is not enought time. So what time before the end of session I should start to guess? 2 min, 5 min? Normally I can do all questions. On the exam I spent time cheking twice answers on first 10 questions. As a result I didn't have time for about 10 last ones. On V I didn't have time for 8 questions. And of course I scored not as I wished. In Q questions were combinations and probability, so I tried to double check. I left about 10 to randomly guessing (I start do that about 2 min before time exp.)
And another thing. On V I had feeling that I'm doing Ok, since questions became harder and harder. Surprisingly, my score was low. Why did I have this false feeling? Is any indicator that you doing Ok, or just don't pay attention to content of questions? I'm confused. :cry:
