I've search all over trying to find specifics on how your mark is exactly calculated with no success....

So does anyone know which is better? Say you got 30sec left with 4 questions to go. Is it better to leave them blank, or guess on all 4 getting 1 right and 3 wrong??

From what I have read, the penalty for leaving a question blank is greater than answering it incorrectly.

GUESS GUESS GUESS!

Blanks are penalized more than wrong answers. Eliminate any obvious wrong answers if you can, and guess D's or E's

in either kaplan GMAT 2006 or Kaplan 800 it says guess D or E if you are making a total random guess.

I'll try to find the exact reference and post it here.

Don't know if I necessarily buy it but thats what it says...
