Taking around 4min per OG 13 Quant PS problems over #100 [#permalink] New post 14 Nov 2013, 21:48
Hey guys, Ive been doing OG 13 and keeping an error log and one thing is clearly obvious from a small sample of questions.

From problem # 106 to 116 in OG Quant PS which is 11 problems hehe (116-106 + 1)

My hit rate for "hard problems" (as designated by MGMAT official companion) is

Number Correct Hard Problems/ Total number of hard problems = 2/6 or 33%

Number Correct Medium Problems/ Total number of medium problems = 2/3 or 66%

100 % for 2 easy problems

------------------

But the thing is that I am taking more than 2 minutes to solve the medium and hard problems approx 4 minutes exactly and this is really bothering me as I dont know how to go any faster.

It just takes me some time to figure out how to translate what the problem is asking me and then delivering a problem. Its almost like the 2 minute time limit necessitates you knowing how to solve the problem within the first 15 seconds and if you dont know how, you're screwed because the rest of the time is the whole setup up and solving

--------------

Im taking notes and making sure I do the proper review for what I get wrong but the only thing that I can think about doing to get faster is just doing more problems like I am doing so that I get used to seeing the same concepts tested in multiple ways and over time I can speed up the process.
