Hi
Briefly , I am really struggling to score well in verbal .
My Official Practice scores :
Practice : V34 : 3 months ago
real GMAT :V23 :( 3 months ago
Practice :V28 : today (see photo )

I have noticed a good improvement in both CR ,SC
However, always : I run out of time and I guess the last 8-9 questions without even looking at them :hurt: as you see from today's result.
for all three attempt : RC is my weakest point :dazed :dazed
Also, I think purely on timing , I can be at least in 30s . (Unfortunately , from question 26 to 36 in the picture of today's attempt are all guessing without looking )
so , would it be a good strategy to guess one of the RC passages ? ( the second or the third for example )
this way I can guarantee more time to CR ,SC especially those last questions ?
My fear of guessing a whole passage is that it might hurt to have 3-4 questions wrong in a row . but still this would be better because i am already wasting the last questions because of reading .

Or you recommend other idea ?

My target is 36-37

Hi,

I am not an expert but I used to suffer from the same problem. Recently,I have improved a bit and I am able to finish the sections atleast.

May I know, (if you don't mind)...how much time on average do you spend on CR, SC and RC questions respectively ??

Regards

I don't know precisely , since I haven't ordered ESR , Is there a way in the online practice test to see my time management per question type ?
