Thanks for your helpful post.
I tried using what you said in regards to data sufficiency and cut down my time.
I also read
BB's timing-strategies-on-the-gmat (Sorry too new to post link)
Basically, what I did was put a time limit of 2 minutes on my first 5 questions. I had to guess 2 of the questions after 2 minutes and I was able to solve the other ones relatively quickly which gave me a buffer for the upcoming 32 questions.
I then tried to solve the remaining questions without the 2 minute limit but every time my time crept back up, I would implement that rule again.
I think my plan may have worked because this was the first time I was able to get through all the questions in Quant and I just went from 2 previous exams of 560 and 550 (where I had left the last 5-7 questions blank) to 690.
I am curious if this was a major fluke so I will do 2 more tests in the following days and report back.
Is a jump from 550 ish to 690 possible just by finishing 5-7 questions?
My goal is 600 so I am hoping that no matter what, even if this past GMAT was a fluke, I can at least hit 600...
BTW, the practice GMAT was Manhattan. Is that exam easier than others? I found it easier than Veritas and
Kaplan...
Do you guys think 600 is within my reach for my exam in 2 days? I need all the confidence I can get because before my last exam, I thought I was hopeless...
Thanks everyone.
