Thanks for the response, bb!
Yes, I use a stopwatch on each question I work.
My general rule for whether or not I have mastered a concept/problem is if I can answer the question in less than 2 minutes. If it takes me more than 2-2:30 to answer a problem, I know I still have more work to do to consider that particular concept "mastered".
My target score is 600+ and I still have more than a month until my next GMAT so your response is encouraging!
If its your initial stage of preparation then accuracy is more important than timing. You should time the questions and not down those that took more than 2 minutes to solve.
But do not guess or give up after 2 minutes. Even if you do that, do not look at the answer,come back again and try to solve if if it takes an hour to do. The same question is never going to come, but the concept learnt may test you anytime.
There will be some times in the test when you will do 5 questions for 2.5 minutes and next 5 in 1 minute. Thus averaging less than 2 minutes. The most important aspect of the test is to manage this.
Most Imp : Be confident and positive about your preparation.
Good luck and keep us updated.
