i heard that getting the first 15 Q's correct for both Math and Verbal is VERY important in maxmizing your raw score. by the time the last 5 Q's come around, your score is pretty much determined.

is this true?

if so, then its probably more strategic to get the first 2/3 correct and sacrifice the last handful of questions rather than getting a few wrong throughout the entire test (beginning, middle, end).

any validity in this?

Yes, the first few questions are the most important, so spend a little more time upfront. The last few questions can affect your final score by 10-30 points or so, so if you run out of time, be sure to guess. You're penalized less for wrong answers then unanswered questions. (This all comes from my 2005 Princeton Review book, which has excellent test strategies, btw.)
