Originally my time management strategy was to divide the time allocated for each section by 3 then figure out what question I should be at spending 2 mins on quant question and 1.75 min on the verbal section.
That comes out to :
Quant: question 12 @ 50 min left, question 25 @ 25 min left.
Verbal: question 14 @ 50 min left, question 28 @ 25 min left.
It worked ok on some practice tests, but on the more recent ones (specially kaplan
), I had to rush and guess the last 3 answers on each sections.
I feel I have to revise my checkpoints because of the increasing difficulty of questions. It is usually around questions #17-20 that I start slipping.
How do you guys approach time management?
