Hi all. I read an older thread about timing strategies at:
http://gmatclub.com/forum/timing-strategies-on-the-gmat-80176.html#p602546Like many other people, timing is a one of the biggest challenges for me in the Quantitative section, and I'm coming from a Comp Sci/Math background! One thing that I would like to discuss is when to move on and guess in the Quantitative section.
Specifically, the aformentioned thread above suggests moving on after 2 minutes. However, wouldn't a better strategy be to move on if you cannot even come up with the equations in one minute for PS questions? Most likely, even if you can come up with the equation for a PS question, it may take another minute to come up with the answer. Thus, if you can't come up with the equations at the one minute mark, you can save a whole minute from that question that you could use on future questions.
Something similar to this strategy is perhaps giving yourself no more than 45 seconds after reading a PS question to come up with the equations. If you cannot come up with the equations in 45 seconds after reading a PS question, it's time to move on.
Thoughts on this?
