I have't taken the real exam yet but I took Manhattan GMAT and scored around 550 on a few of them. I took Prep1 twice and I think the second time I saw some repeats so I scored better. My problem is I get stuck on a math question (or two), loose precious time and don't get to finish 5-7 questions. Verbal for some reason is better. At least I get to finish it.
I just can't believe that some of the harder questions on MTGMAT are expected to be done within 2 minutes. What am I doing wrong?

I am not exactly sure on how long a harder question of MGMAT takes. but, definitely it will not be a 2 min question, as these are somewhat harder than real deal. As I see the sugestions in this forum, if a question takes more than 4-5 mins, better do an educated guess and proceed with the further questions. You can at least solve the remaining questions thouroughly. When it comes to normal practice during initial weeks, you better spend the time until you solve the question.

If you have completed 50-75% of your preperation, you can do one GmatPrep test to assess your caliber when you are in such dilamma. This will nearly tell you where you are.

Btn, I assume you have completed OG. If not, please do so.

Yes, I have completed OG, OG Quant and OG Verbal. I've been doing Manhattan GMAT and tests from 800.com. I can finish the problems but they take longer that they should. Maybe I'm missing some shortcuts... I don't know.

Then it's perfect time to do one GMATPREP test now, and the other one a week before the test. Of all the tests available, gmatprep nearly mimics the actual test. If you are still encounter the same problem, then its a real problem.
