Hi kevinthomas,

Have a time management strategy and practice that in CATs so that you can follow the same without any effort in real exam.

Here is one that i like and that helps manage the time well and its easy to learn. Go through this post:
https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/blog ... anagement/
https://gmatclub.com/forum/timing-strat ... 80176.html

I would suggest stick to 1 or 2 min for most questions.

Regards

Hi kevinthomas,

Welcome to gmatclub!

I wouldn't worry about timing early on in your prep. You have to learn to walk before you can run. IMO, it is more important to understand and apply the concepts confidently and to achieve high accuracy. As you practice and learn from your mistakes, you'll naturally become faster.

What study materials do you use in your prep? Do you have a study plan? You might find this thread helpful:

Hope this helps!

Hi kevinthomas,

Many Test Takers face some type of pacing issues during their studies, but since you just starting studying, you should not be focused on pacing just yet. In simple terms, you have to be 'correct' before you can be 'correct and fast.' This is meant to say that learning the necessary content, Tactics and patterns should be your focus at this point; you will likely speed up with time (as you become more familiar with everything and learn to recognize patterns). That having been said, to be efficient throughout your studies, it's important to have a study plan and make sure that you're training in approaches that help to maximize your overall efficiency.

Since you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

1) What study materials are you currently using?
2) What is your goal score?
3) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
5) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

That's not bad at all, and I'm sure that your average time will come down with practice and greater familiarity with concepts and question types. As for your question, here is one possible strategy.
