Before I started preparing, I had problems with time management on both sections (Verbal & Quant). I used to run out of time on last 4-5 question and end guessing randomly. After studying for over a month, I've become comfortable with pacing on Quant. Now I consistently score 45+ on Quant with No major problem with timing on pratice tests. Verbal, however is a completely different story for me. I am still having serious trouble finishing Verbal section of practice tests within 75 minutes. After thorough analysis, I discovered that RC, specially passages based on Biology (or Science in general), is my biggest problem. I just can't find a way to do well on those passages. I also noticed that spending more on them does NOT improve my accuracy and I actually end up with less than 1 minute/question for last 8-9 questions.

I am thinking of one extreme measure.......if I guess randomly on Biology-based RC passage, it will save me 7-8 precious minutes. This may not be a bad strategy, as long as I don't get that passage on first 10 questions and that no more than one Bilogy based passage shows up on my GMAT.

Any comments on this?? If you guys can suggest any other approach to deal with "Time Management" on RC, I'd highly appreciate that.

I tried to search through posts to look for help on "Timing Strategies" but it was too hard to find useful info since I couldn't sort posts by number of views or responses.
