Dear all,

During the test, is it better to answer all the questions without exceptions, or do you prefer to take more time on tough ones and leave some without answers at the end ?

(Any links on this in the forum appreciated)

I am no expert, but I think leaving questions in the end is very very bad for your score.

Not finishing the test is disastrous. I would think that is better to just guess randomly at the last few questions just to finish the test, rather than leave questions blank. Note that this is unlike the SAT--where it actually doesn't matter whether or not you guess at questions you haven't reached.

ok, thanks. Understood for the end of the test.
Still I wonder if it's better to give much time to difficult question, or stick to a straight 2min. approach per question.

the more you practice and the more timed sections you do, the more efficient you'll become. by the time test day comes around, the "time factor" won't be at the forefront of your mind like it is right now. you'll instead be able to concentrate fully on the questions themselves and not on how much time you have left to complete the questions...do as many CATs as you can. I took a course with manhattan review and they provided CAts as well as a ton of great tips and tricks for how to conquer the "time factor".
