So I can solve just about any quant problem if I had enough time, but that seems to be my biggest limiting factor. I was reading an article by MGMAT that said if you want a 750+, you need to learn ways to crush 650-700 questions in 30 seconds.

Does anyone know good places to learn tricks or methods for getting through problems quicker?

Also, check out my blog. Most posts focus on learning alternative (brute force/non-algebra) ways of solving questions. Once you get a hang of these alternative solutions, you can do most questions in less than a minute.
