Hi,

I'm a little bit slower and it takes me forever to solve a math problem (aprox 4-5 min) or respond to verbal questions (4-7 min), maybe faster in SC. I did first all the OG questions, except the RC section, and now I'm doing them one more time before procceding to the 1000 sets. It takes me almost 1 hour to do 20 Cr questions. I think the problem is my reading speed is very slow and sometimes I have to read the passage twice to understand what it says, the same for the answer choices. I tried to read faster but in this way I don't understand too much.
I downloaded Walker's timer, by the way great tool, and yesterday I tried to do 20 CR question under time pressure, one question in 2 min. I have noticed that by the timer biped at 120 sec I was just reading the first answer choice on many of them and that paniced me and I couldn't concentrate on the actual question. It seems that I don't have time to analize the arguement and the answer choices. I had a lot of mistakes because of that. I'm pretty sure that if I had had more time I would have done them, maybe not all of them but a lot more. In the math section happened the same thing.
I am confused, I don't know how to prepare from now on, trying to not spend more than 2 -3 min on a question, or take my time for now. I'm afraid that my time won't improve in this way. Or doing a lot more problems will get me used to the questions more and I'll do them better?

Devote atleast 1 month on this and parallely invest your time in learning math basics rather than doing actual questions.

After 1 month start doing actual practice and I am sure you would see a +ve difference in your reading habits and problem solving skills.
