Hi

I've my GMAT scheduled for this thursday and i've been preparing for around 2 months now. My scores in the GMAT Prep has been quite consistent at 750 in each test

But i'm looking for the additional 20-30 points to realize my dream score. In my most recent GMAT Prep exam, i ran out of time and had to guess the last two verbal questions(both wrong) which might have costed me few points

I think i spent more time on RCs resulting in no time for last two questions

Can experts here give me some tips which will speed up my RC comprehension, now that i have only 2 days before D-day

I am no expert but the best way to increase reading speed is just to read more books.

Your exam is just two days away. You have been hovering around 750. Now, in my opinion, do yourself a favor and lock up your books, ask your friend to hide your keys and go for a run. Relax in the evenings, eat healthy food and just enjoy. A few hours before the exam, gloss over your notes once if you want to. That is how you can give an 'extra push' to your score at this time.

Forget your time issues. During the test, make sure you don't dawdle on any one question. Keep moving. If you do fall short of a few mins, just guess. You should get your dream score.
