How Do You Solve DS Questions ? [#permalink]

Hi all,

Is there any common approach to solve Data Suffiency question (600 - 700) in 2-3 minutes ?

My approach is :

- Check Statement (1) alone
- Check Statement (2) alone

if one of the two is suff then it is A or B for statement (1) or (2)
if each statement alone is SUFF , then it's D ;
if none of statements is alone suff then it is C if both of them are SUFF ; if not , it is E /

So, i get really confused when i'm considering each statement alone and i usually spend a lot of time checking statement (2) alone especially.

This approach is too long for me especially for difficult questions ( mixture , overlapping sets ...)

After all, Is it true that problem solving is easier than data suffiency question ?

Thx for your replies

Unfortunately, this is the best approach to ensure you check all answer options. What it sounds like is that you need a little practice on the areas that you take a long time with. Keep prating to get a deeper understanding.
