Numbering 1-41 during the GMAT Verbal Section - yes or no? [#permalink] New post 01 Oct 2013, 00:40
I have read on this forum that some people will number 1-41 on the GMAT Verbal section on the notepad and cross out wrong answers and fill in the correct answer.

An example of what I'm talking about is here
770-q50-v45-3-weeks-prep-journal-advice-materials-155273.html
mid way through that guy's debrief post, he has a number 1-41

Anyways my questions are,

How common is this strategy and do a lot of people use it?
What book or guide is this from?
Is there a formal way or set of instructions that teaches you how to do this? I tried it myself but I just want to make sure i'm doing it in the most efficient way possible.

Is this worth doing during the test? I assume it would waste a couple minutes or so.

Let me know your thoughts. I tried it out yesterday and I ended up liking the strategy, but I dd not finish 3 verbal questions towards the end of my practice test.

Difficult to give a exact answer, it depends on your familiarity. I do it in verbal and DS because of POE(Process of elimination).

You may try it during mocks if you find it useful then good to go.

I have seen this in a few places (Kaplan uses a grid), MGMAT has a reference to it too.
It helps after 3 hours to keep track of correct/incorrect answers so that you don't have to doubt yourself whether you have eliminated C or not.... it is helpful to keep track of elimination but I have used it only for 5 or so questions where I had no idea what the correct answer was.

I'm surprised. I thought this strategy was much more common, but based on your guys' responses, it seems that it not the case.
For now I'll try it out, but I realize that when I utilize this strategy, I become very pressed for time towards the end.
