If you had a limited time to get a study session in, say lunch at work, which section do you think is most beneficial to work on? Or does it depend on the person?

Thanks

I tried to study like that and usually it is hard to focus with work/food/office distractions. Don't waste your time on a lunch break. Unless you are really good about it - that won't help as a major source of score improvement. You can do flashcards/read fiction/review questions/etc during a lunch break but that's not for a serious studying.

I think what sherondaG wants to know is what section to work on during sporadic intervals of free time (lunch, commute to work etc.). I would suggest to think about difficult math problems, math concepts or anything related to the GMAT. To do something concerning the GMAT is much better than to waste time chatting with your colleagues or staring at the window.

Read 2-3 articles or revise your flash cards. Do not try to learn anything new.

I as not able to do much in random free moments of time but that may be my personal weakness. The only "prep" I was able to have was reading fiction books and the only thing that kept me engaged on the subway was the plot. I have no idea how I would pay attention or remember anything if it was a GMAT book, but again, that's me.

I personally think it's a matter of practice. At first, I couldn't concentrate on the material on public transport or in crowded cafeterias or restaurants. But after a few months it wasn't a problem any more. I could revise the material and even to read new stuff (I was preparing for final exams).
