I dont remember reading any sample questions or instructions before the Verbal section on the GMAT Prep; however on the actual GMAT does one have 1-2 minutes to read sample questions/instructions? If yes, then I plan on utilizing that time to create an Answer Grid.

yes, yo do have some time to go through about a thousand (or least it feels that way) screens with different information. Make sure your clock does not tick though when you do it.

bb - the numerous instruction screens are before the quant section. Now I usually take up an the entire test-pad while solving the quant questions, so I will probably end up getting a new booklet for the verbal section. With that said, will there be any instruction screens before the verbal section?

Also, if I take the 8 min break between quant and verbal sections - do I have to leave immediately, or I can stay back for 2-3 mins , scribble the grid and then take the break.

Thanks

Thanks

It depends on when you end the Quant section. Personally, if you are so intent on doing this, and you finish Quant with at least 5 or so minutes to spare, get a new test booklet, choose your answer on the last question of Quant, but don't click confirm, write down the test grid on the booklet and then click on submit before you head out for the break. Once you hit the optional break Yes, your time will be counted anyway.

Finishing the quant section 5 minutes before the end of the allotted time is not on the cards. I re-ran GMAT Prep yesterday just to see what screen we get before the Verbal section starts - there is infact 1 instruction page that shows up. Now I dont think one will have 2 minutes to read that page , but 30secs to a minute should be enough to get a decent sized grid in place.

You do have 60 seconds to read instructions right before the Verbal section starts - I guess thats enough time to draw up a grid.
