Guys,

Do you think its sensible to have a strategy, where-by in Quants the maximum guesses are done between Q17 and Q27. This way I can make sure that I have an extra minute or two for the last 10 qns, avoiding a streak of wrong answers in the end.

Would a similar thing work in verbal as well?

Thanks

It is really tough to say - nobody knows how GMAT works.
The general consensus is that you can't beat it - you have to study the principles tested on the test and answer the questions in an educated manner. I would not recommend this approach....

If it sounds easy, it was probably tired, and it probably does not work because the loophole either does not exist or has been fixed since.

Sorry - not easy way around it but you can make the process enjoyable - they say you really have to love it/be obsessed with it to ace it.

Hello bb,

IS the strategy to make first 10 question correct really helps scoring well?
If i spend more time in making first 10 questions correct and then guess after every 5 question.Will this strategy help in scoring 700+?
