Time out: Random guessing technique? [#permalink] New post 29 Nov 2006, 02:05
Is there any technique to random guess if you ran out of time at the end? Should you just pick the same answer for all the remaining questions or do it at random?

Thanks!

If your going to guess try and eliminate a few answers and just guess on the remaining that way your chacnes are higher of getting the question right.

If you're a 700+ scorer, I would try to out think the test.

For example, scan the question and the answer choices and eliminate any answer choices that have words or phrases that dupe the question.

for SC pick the shortest answer
CR quick scan and pick an answer choice that doesn't look trite
RC u are out of luck :help2
DS if its geometry pick D (if u think about it there is not much u can't do with cos, tan and all that jazz :-D ). For others make an educated guess, but don't pick C.
PS educated guess
